Hibernation is Boring

I was convinced that this would be the weekend where I would go into hibernation. The weather on Friday was miserable. It was -32C with the windchill (that's -25 fahrenheit) and I was not about to go anywhere.

I was content watching Misty enjoy her new bone.

And eating yummy wedding cake and cupcakes that Savio brought us.

So, when I woke up on Saturday, I figured I'd spend the day at home, doing nothing.

Then I got bored.

And Andrew got bored.

In a split decision, we decided to see a movie. We got some movie tickets for Christmas and figured we should use them. We spent a whole five minutes getting ready, ran out of the house and got to the theatre at the exact time our movie was supposed to start. Just to find out that the movie was sold out.

Instead of waiting around to see a different movie, we decided to grab a couple drinks at the new restaurant that just opened up on our street; the drinks were great and the service was fantastic! We were both impressed.

Then, at some point, it was agreed that we should go to Dave and Busters. With friends. So we did.

There, we took awkward photobooth pictures.

And awkward selfies.

And won 500 tickets on Deal or No Deal by "strategically" pressing as many buttons as possible at the same time and saying "no deal" to every offer.

After our fair share of games, we went to a bar to grab food; which wasn't enough food for us, so we got some McDonald's later on (my stomach regretted that the next morning).

Sunday was spent recovering relaxing and eating homemade chicken noodle soup.

I'll hibernate next weekend.



  1. That cupcake looks so good! And the pup is adorable!

  2. for real. winter needs to stop with these bullshit shenanigans because i'm tired of it all!! but at least you guys had a great impromptu friends outing :)

    Vodka and Soda

  3. don't you just love when you have absolutely nothing planned and then it turns out to be a great weekend!

  4. Ugh, I hibernated during our blizzard yesterday and I'm itching to get out but it's soooo cold.

  5. Sounds like fun, spontaneous plans can turn out to be the best!

  6. that day sounds much better than hibernating!

  7. I definitely hibernating this weekend!! I spent a good part of my Saturday on the couch in my comfy clothes watching One Tree Hill!! Love the photobooth picture!!!!

  8. I keep saying I want some snow but I know if it happens and keeps me inside for too long ill probably go nuts!

  9. I can't really even fathom how cold that is and I'd like to keep it that way!! What movie were you trying to see? x

  10. Unplanned plans are always the best! You definitely had a fun weekend in spite of the crappy weather!

  11. negative 32, oh good lord i don't know if i could handle that. this sounds like so much fun and way better than staying indoors!

  12. I would definitely freeze in that weather. Dave and Buster's is always a blast :)

  13. I wanted to hibernate this morning! My weather app said 10 -- nothing compared -25, but this is Texas! Haha.

  14. It is so cold !!!! I am so happy to be home again..!
    Ooooh it's been years since I played at an arcade!! That is definitely my idea of a night of fun with the hubby.

  15. Sounds like it was a great outing. I love an unexpected night out.

    I am so over winter now that Christmas is done. It is definitely not as cold here but I am still ready to bask in some sunshine.


I love comments. Thanks for making me smile!
