This weekend was pretty awesome

And this is why:

  • Ditching “work” early to go to the Detroit Zoo with Joel on his day off Friday.
  • Sleeping in both days with NOTHING major on the agenda. Ahh the bliss of a clear schedule.
  • Possibly making new friends with the ridiculously friendly couple who won the Birmingham Patch spring contest.
  • Bike ride around Birmingham for smoothies and stamp-buying.
  • Surprise Easter gift box from Cherry Republic arriving Friday (thanks parents-in-law!)
  • Lovely weather.
  • Taco night!
  • To Kill a Mockingbird on USA Saturday night.
  • Surprise Easter basket Sunday morning with our favorite candies: Peeps, Reese eggs, smarties, nerds, chocolate bunny and Starburst jellybeans.
  • No one at Panera or Kroger Sunday morning — no lines! Pays not to be religious.
  • Finishing Flowers for Algernon (sad!…review pending)
  • Taking in our fourth Hayao Miyazaki film, Porco Rosso. Excellent, as always.
  • Not having to stop during our run around the neighborhood.
  • Smothered pork chops.
  • No roller derby Sunday night, meaning more time to hang with my boy and listen to the Film Classsics show on WRCJ.
  • Wine, wine and more wine.
