Where did the weekend go?

What a busy weekend! I literally have no idea where the time went. Here's the play-by-play.

FRIDAY
Went straight from work to home, changed, and headed to Savannah to pick up my new 46" HDTV from Best Buy. One little problem... I drive a Toyota Corolla. The thought that my new TV might not fit in my car did not occur to me until the guy wheeled it out. OMG. I hadn't factored in the size of the box. I had to lay down my backseat and literally push it down with my entire body while the Best Buy guy shoved the TV in through the trunk. It took some effort, but we finally made it fit. After that, I hit up the Bass Pro Shop to pick up some warm clothes for a fishing trip; I got an awesome Carhartt jacket (super warm!), overalls, and some duck shoes.

Best part of the night was meeting up with LC and PD to see the new Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston movie "Just Go With It". It was a cute rom-com, and we had a lot of laughs, but the REAL reason we went to see it was because the majority of the film takes place at the Grand Wailea resort in Maui, where LC/PD are getting married in December! (I am so excited to be in the wedding party... ALOHA!)

The worst part of the night? Realizing I couldn't extract the TV from my car on my own once I got home. Oops.

SATURDAY
My good friends RH and AH are moving soon, so Saturday I met up with them for pizza at Vinnie Van Go-Go's in Savannah. They brought along their adorable daughter LH (my little buddy!) and I was so happy to see them one last time before they depart. The pizza is one of the best in Savannah, so it was nice to do something really local as their farewell.


I also got to do some shopping at the lovely Kitchens on the Square, and stopped at World Market to pick up some wine and spices. Finally, it was time to hit the road to Eutawville, South Carolina, to meet up to fish with DW & SW. We had a great dinner at Chef's Choice Steak House, and followed it up with some Cranium and movie trivia games. I had a blast.

SUNDAY
We woke up early to meet Captain Wayne to go fishing for catfish. We were out before dawn, and staying about seven hours... but no fish. :( Stupid fishes. Still, it was fun to get out on the boat with friends, and I really thought it was a beautiful day. I always laugh a lot when I'm with them.


On the way home, I stopped at a Le Creuset outlet and drooled over expensive cookware (nothing purchased yet!), then got some delicious tomato soup in a breadbowl from Panera to take home. Within minutes of coming through the door, I was in fleece PJs on the sofa with Cally the cat. I can't believe how fast the weekend went; is tomorrow really Monday?

Still, it's a short week at work for me, capped off with a long weekend trip to Nashville, Tennessee with GC, MC, and little BC! I can't wait to head to country music's hometown!
