no question about it.

Hooray for three day weekends! Our weekend was pretty much hanging around the house in our sweats, punctuated by a few moments of excitement. And we're okay with that. Some of our moments included:

Watching the Packers beat the Atlanta Falcons! I actually followed the Packers pretty closely this season, so I feel like I can call myself a true fan. As true as a girly girl like me who is perpetually confused by organized sports and who spends most of the game asking R to explain basic rules and penalties to me can possibly be. He wins the award for Most Patient Husband, because he calmly answers questions like, "Why did the coach call an on-side kick?" "What defines pass interference?" "What's a safety?" Hey, you have to learn somehow! And every week I ask a few less questions, so I guess he's a good teacher.

Going out with friends. We don't get out much because Pensacola doesn't really have a thriving night life, so when we do go out, it's a special event. This weekend we went out to help our friend Eric, who was the best man in our wedding, celebrate his birthday. We had a great time with him and his wife Natalie at a local pizza bar called Hopjacks. They have a huge beer selection and little piece of heaven called duck fat fries. They are fried in duck fat and served with a garlic aioli dipping sauce that makes me so happy. On the way out, Natalie and I even managed to talk the guys into going to a dance club! (That's right, I badger R during football games with endless questions AND I make him go dancing... he's the best.)

Last night we went over to Eric and Natalie's for a little MLK Day cookout. They made hot wings and sliders with homemade chipotle mayo. We brought homemade pecan pie (R's recipe). We definitely ate well this weekend.

And today, after cleaning and grocery shopping, I snuggled up on the couch to watch the Golden Globes on DVR. I pretty much couldn't care less about the movies, it's the gowns I love. And guess what? R just sat there the whole time asking questions! "Who is her stylist?" "Why did she go with that off the shoulder Armani?" "Are those earrings Cartier or Nathan Lane?" Enough with the questions, jeez!

Okay, that's not true. I made that up. He didn't even know what I was watching until Megan Fox was presenting and he happened to walk past and glance at the TV. I just wanted to level the playing field. Oh well.

It was a relaxing weekend anyway!
