Weekend Recap!

Friday afternoon started off with me attending a movie with my friend Kathy and Cindy joined us this week! We almost couldn't find something to go to b/c the times were so late, but we finally discovered The Grace Card was playing at 4:00. So, off we went! I had seen on the news Friday morning that The Grace Card was filmed mostly in Memphis. I love when I get to see scenes from our town, it's too neat. The movie had an amazing story. It was sad at times, but a very uplifting and motivating story. Glad we decided to go!Friday night I actually made dinner which I hardly ever do b/c Eric usually has pizza at work. I had been craving spaghetti so I made some simple spaghetti. I think next time I make it I want to ground some beef or get some/make some meatballs to put in it to give it a little extra flavor. I also want to try whole wheat pasta since it is better for us.

Saturday for lunch, Eric and I went to The West Street Diner. I have wanted to try the diner for a long time now, and we just so happen to have tons of coupons to restaurants since I have 3 coupon books that have been given to me at work. Turns out we had a buy one meal get one coupon so we went. I got catfish, fried okra, and mac & cheese. Very tasty. My favorite part was their homemade (tasted homemade) tarter sauce and the biscuits. Oh the biscuits were so good! Eric had country fried steak, mac & cheese, and turnip greens. He wasn't as impressed with his choice as I was mine. We probably won't be going back anytime soon, but now we know what the town diner is like plus we have a breakfast coupon to use :)

Little bit later, Em and I hit up Yogurt Mountain's newest location. The yogurt choices were pretty much the same as the other location, but the building is so much smaller. We couldn't even find a place to sit that we wouldn't feel crowded in by others so we ate in the car. I got vanilla yogurt that was colored green for St. patty's Day. That is the most holiday spirited place ever! Valentine's time they had tons of pink toppings, now they have tons of green toppings.

Last night, Eric and I had one of our Walmart trips to get loads of groceries and other items. It actually wasn't that crowded so the trip wasn't a major pain like Walmart can be. When we got home, we started a free month to Netflix using our Wii, thinking we are going to love it! All we watched so far were the very first two episodes of the Office b/c it was late and I fell asleep on the couch like I typically do :)

Tonight, Em is going to spend the night since the parentals are going to the casino for the night. Lacie is joining her as well. JoJo will be thrilled!
