Good Morning! (afternoon?)
I think I’m still recovering from the shock of yesterday’s surprise bridal shower. There’s a smile on my face that won’t seem to fade.
At one point during the shower I asked my sister and sister-in-law if they were staying in Tampa that night. They said they were hoping to stay at my place – OF COURSE! Slumber party at the Anderson-Russell house!
We didn’t paint our nails, give each other facials, or freeze our bras, but we did order pizza, watch a cheesy movie, and enjoyed a few hours of “girl talk.”
Anthony’s Coal Fired PIzza with sweet peppers and onions – ’twas delicious.
The movie was This Means War with Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and the guy that played Bane on Dark Knight Rises.
Can I just take a minute to talk about how hot Tom Hardy (aka Bane) is? It was worth watching the movie just to see him in his sexy, British-accent glory. Mama like!
The rest of the movie was just okay. Predictable and a little over the top, but definitely made us laugh and kept us entertained.
I stayed up writing my shower post, then passed out around midnight. We had a pretty bad thunderstorm roll in early this morning, which sent poor Maddie into a tailspin. The thunder was bad (even scaring me!), so I had to get up and wrap her in a blanket and hug her tight to calm her down. I ended up dozing off for a few more hours after that and couldn’t believe the clock was blinking “10:00am” the next time I opened my eyes.
I walked out of the bedroom and found Kelly and Ashley at the kitchen table.
“Is it really 10:00?!”
They had slept in too, only waking up about 15 minutes before I had. I guess all our bodies were really craving sleep.
We got to work in the kitchen making waffles using this recipe Kelly found online.
The waffle were simple, yet delicious. I served mine with fresh figs and a little Chobani yogurt.
Totally hit the spot.
After breakfast Kelly and Ashley had to hit the road. So happy i got to spend an unexpected weekend with my sisters!
It’s still raining, but we’re hoping to squeeze a few errands in today.
Hope the sun is shining where you are!
