It was me, in the casino, with the water gun.

I love weekends, we need more weekends in our life. And I'd say this weekend was the perfect combination of relaxing and busyness and awesomeness and just yes, fun times all around, so here we go.

Friday: When Matt told me he was going to go see Predators with some friends Friday night I took the opportunity to come home, make myself a delicious dinner, drink some wine and watch Dexter. Yes I have hopped on the Dexter train and I can thank Netflix live streaming for that. I had no idea there were only twelve episodes in a season so I was sold on starting the show earlier in the week so five episodes later Friday night was good to me.

Saturday: Slept in a bit, finished season one of Dexter (and I may or may not be hooked and there may or may not be a post about this show coming soon), did some major apartment cleaning and before I knew it Matt and I were on our way to the party. What party you ask? Only a Vegas themed murder mystery dinner birthday party for our friend Matt. And pretty much it was awesome. Everyone got into character, I was Sundance Sue, a wannabe Vegas cowgirl, my Matt was Bud the bouncer, Matt's brother Brad was a Marilyn Monroe impersonator (amazingness), Matt's other brother Ryan was a magician and I was the daughter of the birthday boy Matt who was the casino owner and yeah, priceless. And it was so cute how organized Kristin (Matt's wife) was and how everything was themed and it was just so fun. In the end I ended up being the killer, which was awesome and I almost got away with it but one guy changed his vote at the end. Anyhoo let's just share some pictures:

Elvis, Abro and Bud hanging out.

Bud and I had a secret romance ya'll.

the bossman with baby Scarface at the table.

Marilyn had to turn down the proposal, haha.

Brad and I trying on some wigs,
I mean why not right?

Ryan, Kristin and Matt having a good time.

we decided to get a bit crazy with our betting, haha.

the Matt's enjoying cigars and showing off
their guns, it's a guy thing.

my blonde twin and Ted laughing it up
at the end of the night.

After we finished playing the game we ended up drinking more and playing poker and blackjack and the guys smoked cigars and it was just a fun night all around. On top of that, it was a long night, I didn't go to bed until 3 and I know Matt and some of the other guys were up til 4:30, basically we partied like we were really in Vegas, haha.

Sunday: Slept in a little bit (I mean I was up until 3) and woke up part of the party crew cleaning up and making breakfast and I got to play with the baby and watch some PBS cartoons which was super cute and fun, seriously bebes, adorable. Eventually Matt and I left and went to Brian and Ted's parents' house to watch the World Cup game. Yeah I don't really care about soccer and there were way too many yellow card and a majority of the players were lame whiners but congrats to Spain I suppose.

After the game we made our way home and relaxed for a bit before I headed on over to Ev'Yan's place for a little Netflix/Nintendo party action. It was a fun and very needed afternoon of watching some stand up, eating some pizza, talking Twilight and just laughing and having a good time all around.

The rest of the night was spent watching TV with Matt, talking wedding stuff and relaxing, ah the good life.

And how was your weekend? Rock any fun wigs or was that just me, haha?

happy monday!

I've never been to a mystery themed party. After reading about the one you attended, I'm pretty sure that I need to change that stat.
