Sort of. Tuesday is my least favorite day of the week. Monday never bothers me much because it's a shiny new week! So many possibilities! I will accomplish everything!
Then Tuesday comes, reality hits and it's not even midweek yet.
My roommate once had a conversation with me - in her sleep - about how much she hates Tuesdays. That's how bad they are.
On that uplifting note, here is what we've been up to lately:
Valentine's Day fun! Tom and I started the morning by making some waffles. Which we failed at enormously the first time, but we had it down by waffle number three!
Then we saw the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I didn't read the book and some parts of that movie were downright laughable, but it wasn't actually as bad as I was expected. I thought it was going to be a full-on hate watch session, but I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. I still don't know if I'll ever read the books.
I made some pretty addictive cherry almond cupcakes (adapted from recipe here.)
Then we made dinner together!
Meatloaf, asparagus, steamed red potatoes and garlic bread. Meatloaf is Tom's favorite dinner, so he was excited to learn how to make it. We actually enjoyed that dinner so much that Tom and I replicated it this past weekend. Except this time we added homemade chocolate lava cake...holy crap that was amazing. (Recipe here.)
Friday night I went with Tom and a couple of his friends to play pool at what we assumed would be the sketchiest, creepiest bar. It totally looks the part from the outside. But inside it was actually pretty spacious and nice, so we will be back. Also, I tend to be horrible at anything involving any sort of coordination, but I wasn't too bad at pool!
Enjoy your Tuesday, friends! It only gets better from here!
