After my insane week last week, Friday night couldn't come soon enough! My plan was simply to relax on the couch, and Dante helped me achieve my goal (sorry, crappy low light iPhone photo):
Nikki came over to join mom and I in watching The Young Victoria while drinking lemon drops and snacking on chips and salsa. The movie was fantastic! Highly recommended. Mr. Same Same made it over later after a meeting and we finally crashed out after midnight. I have no idea how I managed to keep my eyes open that long.
Next morning my brothers and Sarah came over and we all watched the USA tie England in a super close World Cup game. Sprocket actually calmed down long enough to settle on my brother's lap for this shot that I'm now in love with:
He's cute when he's not going nutso! :)
The rest of the day was spent chilling out and watching movies, which was just what I needed. Mr. Same Same had also had a helluva week between several long days filming (albeit in Hawaii, so can't feel too bad for him) and trying to churn out some other projects once he got back. I finally got to see Zombieland (awesome), and forced the boy to finally watch The Hangover (which he loved, of course).
That night we gathered to celebrate Lars and Sarah's birthdays - they're a day apart. Try not to choke on the cuteness.
Mom made her fantastic homemade spaghetti and garlic bread plus delicious chocolate cake. Yummy!
A few of their friends came over and we spent the rest of the night playing Wii games, geeking out over viral videos and enjoying some of this:
Linie aquavit is a Norwegian staple. ;)
Sunday was spent running some errands, taking Dante on a long walk, catching up on Doctor Who episodes and watching the premier of True Blood. Couldn't ask for more!
What about you guys?
