Starting off '09 with a Wii.

Annnnnd I'm back. I really was in no form to write a post for Friday so I figured I'd just leave you with my New Year's resolutions for a while. Anyhoo the week/weekend was glorious, glorious I say people. I was such a bum and it was amazing. So without further ado I present you my past couple of days and my start to the New Year, surprisingly without many pictures so I'll keep it short since pictures are always the most fun part....

Wednesday: Well since I didn't have to work I slept in to some ungodly hour then woke up and played the Wii for a while, seriously I love that thing. Other than that I couldn't really tell you what I did the rest of the day, haha. Once Matt got home we had some dinner and finally made some plans for the night. We ended up going up to Matt's brother's girlfriend's parent's house for New Year's festivities. It ended up being pretty fun hanging out, drinking lots of champagne and meeting some new people.

me and Michaela, heart her


All in all it was a lovely night ringing in the new year with Matt and friends.

Thursday: In a nutshell. Woke up early, drove home, almost weren't allowed on our street (damn Rose Parade), passed out til 11, went to my parent's house for football (fight on!) and good food, went to Matt's dad's house for more football, back home for relaxation aka the Wii, friends came over for dinner, same friends brought over Guitar Hero World Tour, partied like rock stars all night long.

everyone rockin out

All in all it was a great night with lots of rocking (and not rocking on my part, seriously I suck at the guitar, haha) and fun times.

Friday: Another day of awesome laziness. Seriously it was just me and my Wii, with a couple of errands tossed in the mix. Not even kidding I am mastering bowling and tennis and still sucking at Mario Kart, haha. Matt and I basically spent our night hanging out, drinking wine, and playing Mario Party on the Wii, such a lax night and definitely awesome.

Saturday: Went and saw Bedtime Stories with the fam, which I actually really liked it's super cute then met up with Matt and some friends at Yard House. I had their new grilled cheese with four cheeses and tomato bisque, so tasty I highly recommend it. Afterwards a couple of us came back to our apartment for more wine and some Wii. Really, I don't know if I'll ever go out again, haha. But no, it was awesome, I had an intense tennis match with my friend Blake it was hilarious and can't wait to play him again.

Sunday: Started the day off early with brunch for Matt's dad's birthday then did a four mile walk with my mom before heading off to my cousin's birthday party and ultimately coming home to hang out, play the Wii and soak up the last seconds of vacation time. Twas loverly.


All in all it was my kind of vacation weekend, loved it all. And I still can't believe we're in 2009 already!!

Anyhoo how was your weekend? 2009 looking good I hope?





happy monday!

The Wii can be really addicting! Granted, I haven't played mine for months but once I get started on it, I can't stop myself!

Awesome start to '09. I really want a Wii, but I'm afraid I'd never leave the house!

WeezerMonkey said...

I am sad to start a full week of work. Boo!

Happy new year!

Vanessa said...

Bedtime Stories is on my list too. Also, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who loves the NYE tiaras. This weekend I was wonderfully lazy and hung out with my pup who had surgery on Friday....so see? I had no choice, really!

Mandy said...

I love the Wii, I dont have one because if I did I doubt I would leave the house. I am finding it hard to believe its 2009 as well. I spent the better part of my vacation being lazy and enjoying every minute of it. Hope you have a great work week!

Happy 2009 Katelin! Here's to our blogs making it to the big leagues this year ;)

I would like to borrow your Wii. By borrow I mean keep.

Happy New Years! I saw the beginning scene of AnchorMan and thought of you yesterday ;)

My 2009 looks good, considering my first day back on campus is cancelled due to a snow day, so I'm doing my new years resolution instead and hitting the gym!

As always...I can count on
you to have a fun-filled
couple of days. Love it.
Sounds super awesome.
Not that I ever expect
anything but.

sarah marie p said...

Sounds like an awesome weekend! Yay for the Wii! Wah, so sad vacation is all over! :( Happy New Year!

Jamie said...

I really need to get MarioKart for Wii. Then we can play each other!

Melissa said...

Yaaay, glad you found your wii!!

Bayjb said...

Wow you and the Wii are pretty serious, I hope Matt doesn't get jealous :)

Phil said...

Fun! I REALLY want to get Guitar Hero World Tour, it looks awesome. And the more I see what they can do, the more I want a Wii. Maybe by the time I can afford one, they'll be easier to come by. :)

Caz said...

We're saving up to buy a Wii. Can you believe they're $200 more in Australia then Canada? That's taking into consideration the dollar too.

Anyway, just wanted to say I have NO idea how you fit as much into your weekend's as you do. You always are at like 4 parties at a time, plus walking, chores, etc. I can barely organize myself to do 1/2 of that!

Susie said...

OK, I'm seriously jealous of your life. Could you have more fun weekends?? Can I move next door to you and tag along with everything you do. Yes? Please?

chasinglibby said...

you and matt are so cute it hurts! my weekend was ALSO good! snowboarded for the first time...OUCH

Wickedly Scarlett said...

That does sound like an awesome weekend! I'm glad you're loving the wii! I'm not quite as enamored, but I've just never been much of a video game girl. Colby is obsessed though, and it does make for some fun nights, I must admit ;) Good luck getting through the rest of the week--I'm already looking forward to Friday!
