Long Weekend Roundup

Hi everyone! If it's a long weekend where you are I hope you are enjoying your holiday Monday. And if its not, well look a the bright side, at least the world didn't end on Saturday after all. Phew!

Here's a little look into how my Victoria Day long weekend has panned out:

Friday:

The weekend got off to a great start when I hit up a local club to check out FirexFire which is an awesome local indie band here in Toronto. Admittedly I personally know these crazy-talented musicians but I promise I would dig them even if I didn't. They rock, what can I say!?!
















It was a great night spent with friends celebrating the start to the weekend, awesome talent and my birthday too! Fun times!!


















Saturday:

I spent most of an absolutely beautiful day indoors cleaning and doing laundry. Not exactly the best plan but the cleanup needed to happen in a big, bad way. I really need a more trainable boyfriend housekeeper.

After clean-a-palooza I headed midtown to my favorite spin studio for another intense spinning/strength class.I made a point to walk some of the way before hopping on transit so I could soak up some rays before heading back indoors for the sweat fest.

Then I hunkered down for the night for a TV series DVD marathon


















Can you believe I have never seen Grey's Anatomy? I'm a complete freak who has lived in a cave for the last 5 years, I know! I started right from season one and have been working my way through all weekend. I am addicted!!

Sunday:

The Boyfriend got home early from a weekend with his family and we headed out to watch Bridesmaids. While we tried to anyway. The theatre at the mall was jam packed and the 6:50 show was completely sold out. What the what??I have never seen a sold out comedy in my life! That's just crazzzy! Making the best of things we decided to grab some dinner and head to another theatre in the north end for a later show. And guess what?? That freakin' show was sold out too! Holy sh*t! If its that popular it must be amazing right? Now I wanted to see it even more badly and was so disappointed that we had to come home instead.

Well not that disappointed really...we just watched more Greys!

Monday:

This morning I headed out for another spinning class at my fav studio. The Boyfriend was super cool and drove me to it and then waited at Starbucks until it was over to drive me back. Sweet right? And the class, as usual was killer. In a good , but my butt is gonna be screamin', kinda way!

Now I am hoping in the shower and rushing out to a mid-afternoon showing of Bridesmaids. I'm determined to see this movie and might get a little ruthless if there is a line. Stay tuned for the evening news for major dramatics at the theatre just in case.















Old people and children be warned..things could get a little rowdy. I will see this movie today or else!


So tell me, how was your weekend? Have you seen any good movies lately? Do you love Grey's Anatomy?

  1. I saw Bridesmaids this weekend. Very funny! And sorta emotional. I was tearing up through a lot of it! < --- loser

    Ok, don't hate me. I hate Grey's. So much. I loved the first 3 seasons and then it took a total nosedive for me right after Christina (no spoilers, don't worry) was admitted for having an icicle lodged in her abdomen. She had to have it SURGICALLY removed. Because....icicles do not melt apparently. They need to be removed surgically.
    Oh, and Izzie had to do surgery on a deer from the back of a truck. That was the first indicator. Icicle brought it over the edge for me.

  3. Happy Birthday! I'm so far behind in TV and Movie land. However, Bridesmaids is getting so many great reviews I think I'm gonna have to go see it!

  5. I was a Grey's fan back in the day - but like Paula I lost interest after season 3 or 4. I couldn't get past some stuff, even though certain cast members left the show.

    I DID however love Bridesmaids - so I hope you loved it too!! We're going to see The Hangover II on Friday. Can't wait!!

  6. I used to be obsessed with Greys, but haven't watched it in a couple years. I think the early seasons are the best, so enjoy! :)

  7. OMG!!!! I can't believe you've never seen Grey's!!!!

    The first seasons were pretty epic with season two or three (Izzy falls in love with a patient) being INCREDIBLE!!!!!

    Unfortunately there's only so much medical drama I can take......so I stopped watching probably around the fourth season.

    You're in for a great ride.....in the first few seasons at least! :)
