SnackFace in Wonderland
Hi, pies! I am having a spectacular time at home, and I hope your weekends have been lovely, too.
On Friday I fueled my ride home with Beyonce, Modest Mouse, Rilo Kiley, OK Go and Young Money, and made it home in one tired piece. MamaJ and I skipped to Kroger and we all settled down for dinner afterward:
After-dinner entertainment was supplied by The September Issue. If you’ve seen this, all I can say is that I’m thankful that I’ve worked for food magazines and not fashion. I’m not hatin’, I’m merely hinting toward the fact that I may be extremely intimidated in fashion situations. I guess I’m no longer hinting toward it…
Slumber came soon and then 10 hours later, MamaJ woke me up to inform me I had a hair appointment at 2:30pm. These long locks hadn’t seen scissors since November 2007. Overdue doesn’t begin to explain how badly I needed a cut.
Before the chop session, I chowed down on a fabulous breakfast:
Then MamaJ styled me with a dose of fabulous:
I was going for the baggy jeans rolled-up look, but it didn’t quite work with wide-bottomed jeans. A tapered ankle or straight leg is needed. Oh well!
The hair cut–from wash to finish– took about 15 minutes. I wanted nothing different, just the unhealthy bits taken off. Was I a thoughtful blogger who took before and after pictures? No. You’ll see in a bit, though!
With snipfest out of the way, I was hungry for lunch. Though I lost a few inches of hair, I gained a few ounces/pounds/whatevers of happiness with a perfect lunch:
If there were a Panera on the Athens campus, I would be completely broke. But I still think they should look into this.
MamaJ and I shopped around all afternoon, and then returned home for movie-watching and dinner-making. I’m working on a film paper about Donnie Darko, which means I get to watch it many times over. I cannot complain one bit. Is Jake Gyllenhaal my dream man? Yes, yes indeed.
Dinner was very VegNews-esque:
When dining in the H-Unit household, one must always be aware of the dogs. The little one tends to do this all the time:
We could train her now, but at age 14, I don’t think she’ll change. Grab away, little Peanut.
Whenever I go home, I’m always thankful that everything and everyone is pretty much the same. And duties that I had since I was wee still must be tended to:
And MattyRich still holes up in the basement with man stuff:
And at the end of the night, we all watch a little tube, laugh a lot and love what we’ve got. I’d say my home–filled with the people I love the most– is my wonderland.
It doesn’t hurt that MamaJ makes bossy breakfasts for me, either:
Shortly after breakfast, MamaJ, Popsicle, Marshallow and I headed out for a walk in our backyard:
I’ve grown up with the luxury of having a park directly behind our house. As MamaJ pointed out to me, though, I probably only went there for a week’s time, total, in my lifetime. What can I say? I’m not the outdoorsy type.
I am outdoorsy enough to enjoy a gorgeous walk with my family, though:
After our initial loop, I went back out solo for a 10-minute run. That’s good enough for me. I’ll leave the marathons for the experts. (I thought I was going to see some eggs again.)
Showered and dressed, Mumsy and I went to see Alice in Wonderland. Exquisite. Absolutely exquisite. While I was enchanted by the technology, plot and fashions, I couldn’t help but think how scary the film could be for a 5-year-old. Anyway, I walked away wishing my mind were a bit more full of wonderment and questions, and that my imagination were a tad richer.
I’m off to spend more time with the family and revel in my H-Unit wonderland.
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: Do you have a rich imagination? AND How was your weekend? I miss everyone!
