Here's Jonny.......

Well, Jonny is back! And as you all know, I've been looking forward to this for two weeks ;)
He was so exhausted from his flight back that we both wanted to just relax and spend some "QT" together. I made his favorite chili and we ate the entire pot! yikes.............

He opened his present and was super super excited to find these:



We desperately needed some new kitchen knives, and they are his favorite, Henckels. Isn't it weird as you get older you want things like a Kitchen Aide Mixer or new dishes. But when you were a kid you wanted video games or Doc Martins and pogs lol. Well I still want video games! (Guitar Hero World Tour, I can't wait.)

Jon and I are avid movie watchers. We absolutely love a relaxing evening at home with a couple of new movies. Last night we watched three!!!



All of these were great; Pineapple Express made us laugh til we hurt. Righteous Kill was action packed and had some major twists. My Best Friend's Girl was lewd, crude, rude and........very funny. (As the front of the dvd case states.)

Today we are going to take another exciting and adventerous trip to Ikea! My mother sent us a package from the states. We had some Christmas money in the box from my grandparents and my mom and some more birthday money for Jon. Off to Ikea we got to buy some much needed household goodies.

One thing we need desperately is curtains. We have white sheer blinds in our bedroom at the moment. The other night while I was doing dishes, I glanced into our bedroom window through our kitchen window. I realized, that with the light on, you can see every bit of our bedroom through those blinds. I then remembered how most of the times I am not fully dressed when I go to bed at night and came to the conclusion that I might actually be giving the entire neighborhood a peep show every night since we've moved in! So today we are going to take care of that problem. I'm not in the business of terrifying small children!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I'll be back in a couple days with a weekend update.

I have the exact same problem! Only, our bedroom and living room are completely in glass. I like that and don't want to ruin it with curtains so I figure, what's another peep show or two?

I do want to see my best friend's girl so I'm glad to see you liked it! And I'm so laughing about the part about how we start wanting practical things as we get older!!! So true!

Welcome home Jon!

We need some things from Ikea too but the closest one is in Dallas. Boo. :(

Too funny! I liked it better when the trees had leaves around here. I have the same problem now.

I know you're glad Jon's back & it sounds like you had a fun, relaxing evening. Oh...I still want that chili recipe.

I'm so paranoid if there's even a crack or space in the blinds. LOL!
I'm very modest and would die if I thought someone could see me half naked. They'd die too. :) :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Love,
Val

thanks for the movie recommendations! I bet I would love all of them. We watched Step-brothers on PPV last night. Hiiarious.

Ikea is awesome.. I wish we had one near us!

You guys made it through 3 movies?! I'm lucky if I can get Ryan to stay awake for one!

Did you change your layout? I really like it! (I hope you did because I'm going to feel like a big jackass if you didn't!)

That is so true how things change when we get older. On New Years Eve we went to some friends house and we found ourselves sitting around taking each other's blood pressure with a cuff that she just happened to have. Mine had been high so I wanted her to get it out. We looked at each other and said, "Man we're old! Checking blood pressure on New Year's Eve!"
I so want to go to Ikea. Never been before. Only have the catalog.
Hope the rest of your weeekend is just as great as the first part!!
