bits of the weekend

well friday night we did nothing. eric took a 3 hour nap after dinner and didn't wake up till after 11 pm. by that time i was ready to go to sleep so we just called it a night. oh and i also somehow got pink eye and my eye hurt all day.

we woke up early on saturday and rode our bikes to fairmount park. i went running and eric continued riding his bike.

i've been sort of training for a half marathon, only to find out it's already sold out. bummer.

we were both kind of tired the rest of the day and just hung out.

our plans for the evening were to watch the texas tech v. ut game, so we decided to have pizza for dinner.

the game was a little boring, especially compared to last year!

eric baked some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
side note, we found this giant tub of earth balance and it's the best thing ever.

sunday morning was laazy. the cats and i hung out together in bed for a while.
can i spend my life like this?

and then we finally got to work on some house stuff we had been meaning to do. we took apart the old broken dresser, hung curtains, slightly rearranged our bedroom and completely rearranged our living room, only to put it back to almost how it used to be.

after a trip to the grocery we got to prepping dinner and food for the week.
eric made pasta.



and i made cornbread.


and not to toot my own horn, but i think this is some of the best cornbread i have ever had.

oh and can i just say how frustrating HR departments are. i applied for a job a few weeks ago that i really was interested it. last week i decided to be pro-active about it and actually call them and ask for an interview (this took about 2 hours of mental preparation on my part). well i call, actually get ahold of someone, and they told me they haven't even started looking at resumes! why post a job if you aren't going to do anything about it for weeks!
(or they were just lying and that was a nice way of saying you suck and we don't want you, but i doubt it)

hah well i think first off, we don't have a baby to take care of!
and also, it's really what we love to do, both of us. so it makes for a lot of homemade food, all the time.

Oh my gosh, the picture of you and Kitta. I LOVE. Send me your cornbread recipe, holmes. Or put it on your blog for all of us to experience its awesomeness. :)
