I know I've never fully explained me & Mike's story on here - but long story short is that I've never lived by myself. I moved out of my parent's house when I was 20 & moved directly in w/ Mike.
This means that when I am by myself....I go a little crazy. Usually it involves some wine and fast food, and lots of shopping. This weekend was a bit different - I stayed home yesterday and watched three movies (Notting Hill, Good Will Hunting, and The Proposal) while enjoying a bottle of my favorite white from my favorite winery in Chelan.
This morning - a wee bit hungover, I must admit - I wanted Jack In the Box SO BAD. It's my go to for hangovers since I was 21. I put my clothes on, grabbed my keys, opened the front door...and stopped. I had breakfast ingredients here. I could cook. I backed away from the front door, took off my shoes, and started pulling pans out of cabinets.
It ended up being a great success. I had red potatoes that I sliced very finely, and cooked in a pan with some curry powder & Johnny's Seasoning (If you are a PNW'er, you likely know Johnny's. If not, you are MISSING OUT.) I also had this great sausage I found on AmazonFresh, oven-baked Bacon, and eggs. DELICIOUS! JJ got a bit of everything after I had finished - he really is a spoiled dog. Being as how we didn't really get out of bed until noon, I didn't feel too bad eating such a big breakfast - it was basically lunch at that point!
We watched some football, played some Dance Central on the Kinect - which I learned has 'workout' mode. That was really fun - I sweat a bit and got my heart rate up! It started to snow again, so I threw on my new tights & the rest of my running gear and headed out. It was SO cold, especially when the wind picked up. I was sweating, but my cheeks were burning from being so cold.
All in all, an A+ weekend. JJ & I are curled up in front of our fireplace right now, enjoying some Christmas music & the flames. :)
