Wrapping Up The (non 3-day) Weekend

Yes, I'm a tad bitter that I don't have today off, but here's a peek at what I did over the weekend.

Friday was a bit of a bust because I wasn't feeling well, though we did get in a little neighbor time.

Saturday morning we had rehearsal for this:

We went to Brazenhead for burgers with friends. In the afternoon I watched some TV, including Heart and Souls, which is one of those chick flicks that I love. I mean, come on: RDJ, Mrs. Kevin Bacon and Alfre Woodard? I cry at the end every time. I also watched The Vow, during which I may have dozed off, but finished watching later.

And I painted my nails:

All by OPI: Lincoln Park After Dark, Planks A Lot (on ring finger),
all topped off by Silver Shatter

Saturday night was the 4th Annual Neighborhood Chili Cook Off, hosted by Angie and Eric. We did not enter this year, but there were some fantastic chilis, including a vegan one that I would not have known was vegan and a chicken curry chili (which won Most Unique) and a buffalo chicken chili (my fave, but it didn't win).

The winners! Apologies for demon eyes.

Sunday morning was the Winter Song worship referenced above. Then we went to see Silver Linings Playbook, and I took a wee nap. Aaron made chicken parmesan for dinner and we watched a little TV before falling asleep early.

And now it's Monday and back to work. The sun is shining even though it's chilly, so there's that.

Stay Tuned,

The Gila


  1. I've been meaning to make chicken parm for a while. Maybe this week?

    I'd love to get a recipe for the buffalo chicken chili if they'd share!

  2. Your nails look awesome. I am very jealous, as I have nails that won't hold polish for more than a day, even gel manicures.

    1. Thanks! I'm happy because they're a nice length right now, except for the right thumb which tends to split. Bastard.

  3. I keep seeing the Winter Song graphic on my Blogger homepage, and it makes me think of the Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson tune. That's a gorgeous song.
