A Treat Of A Day

Catching up from the weekend? Check out these posts!

Happy Valentine’s Day! You all are my bloggie loves and I wish I could send you a little treat. Instead, I will just share with you my treat of a weekend.

We had quite the busy day Saturday. I did my final C25K workout of the week and took my 1 month progress pictures in the morning. Then, we had to get going for a family filled day. We first ventured out to Grandma and Grandpa’s for a little birthday celebration.

Our niece turned 12. Twelve! Makenzie will get that big one day? I can’t believe it! I already can’t believe my baby turns THREE this year. But back to the birthday girl…

We hung around for awhile and then had to bolt right after eating the traditional Grandma’s fettuccine and salad late lunch.

We didn’t even have time for birthday cake. Which, I didn’t mind. The birthday cake had no icing. No icing? Not interested!

After the birthday fun, we returned back to our house to visit with my family. My younger brother is in town from Arizona for the week. We decided to bring back one of our favorite pastimes: ordering Chinese food and having a game night!

For dinner we ordered a few dishes and some sushi rolls to share. I had 1/2 a spicy tuna roll, 1/2 a rainbow roll, 2 steamed potstickers, and a small sampling of beef with vegetables and spicy garlic chicken. ‘Twas delicious!

Then we settled in for game time. My brother Tommy brought a game I had never heard of before – Smart Ass.

It’s basically a trivia combined with 20 questions sort of game. It was fun to play all together. I still don’t think it beats Cranium though. Cranium rocks! Perhaps because my sister and I are freakishly on the same wavelength and always win. It’s kind of scary how quickly we can guess each other’s acting/drawing/humming.

Before ending the night, we topped it off with a little nightcap. Another Dairy Queen blizzard! I have been craving these things lately!

It ended the night perfectly before having to say goodbye to my brother until Tuesday night. Then, we get to hang out again. Maybe I’ll request a game of Cranium? 😉

Question of the Day – What’s your favorite board game? And…doing anything for Valentine’s? Not us. Just another day around here.

    I’ve played Smart Ass before, very cool game… a little different than most normal games!

  4. Sounds like a fun night AND you got ice cream! My favorite game is probably Apples to Apples or Catch Phrase. I get a little carried away with the competitiveness sometimes though lol

    I love Clue…it was Colonel Mustard in the Library with the Wrench!!!

    Sounds like a really fun day!
