Coconut Cream Sweetness

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I’ve been looking forward to the weekend since about Monday. When we are this close to the end of the school year (9 teaching days left) I get very distracted.

When I got home from work yesterday is was beautiful, sunny and hot. I convinced Matt to go for a walk with me and we ended up picking up quite a few things. Our first stop was the drug store.

If you remember from Thursday Evening’s post I burnt my hand. Well after my blog post that night my burn started to blister so we did some research and talked to the pharmacist and he recommended that I cover it for a while (up to 2 weeks). Back to yesterday we needed new tape for the dressing so we went to pick some up.

Afterwards we walked to blockbuster and ended up renting:

Alice in Wonderland




Californication Season 2



We then headed to the grocery store to pick up a few things including dinner. Our final stop was the bakery.

I chose for dinner a BLT salad…

I put the salad in a big bowl, took the chicken out and heated it a little and was left with an amazing salad.

With some Stacy’s Pita Chips for a little crunch…

NOM! Such a great dinner. I think you’ll be seeing a lot of chicken salads this summer.

After dinner I wanted a little something else so I had vanilla greek yogurt with a heated chocolate vitamuffin top and some mixed berries…

First we spend some time watching the second season of Californication.

Does anyone else watch that show? I’m still torn on it. They husband loves it but I’m not sure how I feel about it.

Then it was time to watch Alice. I hadn’t seen it yet and was excited to.

What did you think of Alice in Wonderland? I enjoyed it. Johnny Depp did a great job, I loved the visual aspects of the movie and I adore Helena Bonham Carter. I know Anne Hathaway’s character was suppose to be weird but she really got on my nerves.

Before starting the movie we figured it was time to break open the beautiful dessert we picked up at the bakery.

Coconut Cream Pie…

Look at that beautiful pie! All made with real cream.

My piece…

There was so much cream on that thing. It was delicious but soooo rich. After both having a piece last night we still have 3/4 of the pie left and I don’t think I’m going to be able to eat another piece. One piece was perfect.

I wont be back tonight with another post since it is my friends 30th birthday tonight but I’ll post again tomorrow with a re-cap of my weekend.

Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts on Californication and Alice in Wonderful!

I really enjoyed Alice and Wonderland, we saw it in theater. I appreciated how they kept to the original story and never tried to change it like they have done with stories in the past. The visuals (details and animations) were really neat and the characters did a great job. Johnny Depp did do a fantastic job but I though it was a little over the top in parts... it totally fit with the movie though. Over all, I loved it.

I have never see the show 'Calafornication'...

Sounds like a very productive walk! Hope your burn gets better soon :)

I really liked Alice In Wonderland... I loved the background and I have always loved the story. My husband wasn't a fan... it was too whimsical for him.

I love, love, love Californication. We went through the first 3 seasons in 2 weeks! :) But I'm partial to most SHO & HBO series though!
