Man, it was another busy weekend. I thought life would slow down for at least one weekend before the holidays began but I was wrong.
The weekend began with what I thought would be a very low key night home alone. Roomie went out for a birthday dinner. I happily cleaned the bathroom and proceeded to enjoy a night with an empty house. I was very wrong about how my night would turn out.
I ended up going to AC's house, drank a tad too much red wine, had a dance party, then came home to find an inch of standing water on my bathroom floor!!! Luckily, I was smart enough to turn the water off to the toilet which was the root of the problem. Then it took my about 2 hours to clean up the mess. I finally crawled in bed about 3am- so much for my low key night!
My old greek man of a landlord sent his worker-guy to our house first thing Saturday morning. He had everything fixed in about 10 minutes. Thank goodness!!
This past weekend was also the chili cook off/engagement party. I'm proud to say that I won 3rd place in the cook off!! Go me! I cooked a white bean chicken chili. I was surprised how yummy it turned out. Sadly, there were no eligible men at the party so that was a bummer.
After the chili cook off/engagement party, a group of us headed over to AC's house again. This time for a couple games of cards. Once the cards came out, so did the hat box. I wish I had taken a picture, but everyone ended up in different hats- cowboy, genie, Darth Vader- ya know, the norms!
Alright, I'm off to dinner with the newlyweds, Mr. & Mrs. H. I was a bridesmaid in their October wedding and have not seen them since. Can't wait to catch up and enjoy a yummy dinner. The new Mrs. H is a very good cook :)
