Sex and Hockey

Thanks so much for all the words about my latest 5k!  I am still really happy with how I did and am hoping it’ll keep me motivated for the next race I have (next race to be decided- a list of a few I want to do needs to be narrowed down!).

Last night some of us girls (Mon, Annie and I) finally had our girls night out (early evening out?) to go see Sex and the City 2.  It’s been rough to not read everything about it and ruin it for myself, so I’m glad we finally were able to see it.  And…

I really liked it!  The movie was definitely much “lighter” than the first. I’m not a crier, but the first one had me in tears on and off throughout the entire thing.  This one, in my opinion, was more like the actual tv show.  It was light-hearted, while still touching on some heavy subjects that were the undertone of the entire movie.  It was a little long, but I would have a hard time trying to figure out what exactly would have been cut out.  Either way, all three of us left happy with it.  :)

Annie made an exit after the movie to get home (she also had a busy weekend), whereas Mon and I trekked over to Buffalo Wild Wings in hopes of catching the second half of the Blackhawks game and getting some serious food in our stomachs (I was wanting a little reward for the 6 miles I ended up doing yesterday- and yes, I did thrown in another three on the trail after my last post like I said I would).  After being told it was probably going to be a 45-minute wait, Mon and I decided the best move would be to get carryout and catch the game at home.  We also just had a beer at my house- so we saved some $$$ while we were at it.  ;)

So here we are waiting for our food.  Don’t let the smiles fool you- we’re smiling out of deliriousness.  We were HUNGRY after the 2 1/2 hours spent in the movie theater!Mon got some Buffalitos with chips and salsa.And I went for a buffalo chicken wrap and fries.  This girl has had some serious cravings for buffalo chicken as of late!Obviously, I was just as excited about the Goose Island beer…

Gotta love Sunday Fundays…

My bags are packed up again for some running right after work- 3.5 miles today.  I want to get it done first thing because I have some serious grocery shopping and cleaning to get done the next couple of days.  I say “next couple of days” because I’m one of those people who says, “ok, I’m just vacuuming today” or “I’m just dusting in my living room”.  So it takes a few days.  But that’s what works for me- I hate to clean, and I find it’s easier to sneak it in during commercial breaks or something this way.  In my head it makes perfect sense…

Welcome back to the work week.  I only hope there’s plenty of caffeine to go around…

  1. Oooh I love Buffalo Wild Wings. There was one right across the street from the quad at my college. I lived there. Sooo yummy.

  2. The nice thing about moving to a new city without a job is no worry from sunday-monday morning! However also no income…
    I liked Sex & the City 2 as well but there was something missing I felt…idk what though!

    Congrats on your race girl!!

  3. I still haven’t seen Sex and the City 2. I need to get on that!

  4. I love the title of your post, my brother would be all over this!

    I hate to clean too but I love having my house spotless. I have to get it all done at once otherwise I won’t get it done at all!

  5. I HATE cleaning…I am so bad about it! I mean really bad! haha! But today I HAVE to mop my kitchen floor…ugh! I am still really PISSED at my homebuilder…seriously stark white tile in the kitchen is not the best idea. Note to all homebuilders out there…not cool.

  6. Gah. I’m probably going to be the last person in the world to see SATC2, but I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed it :) And I think it’s so cute that you cried during the first one!

  7. I love BWW! Yumm. I saw the movie this weekend too but I had mixed feelings about it. I can’t decide if I am happy about it or not lol.

    OMG I adore your hair. Please tell me thats not just how it dries naturally or I will crawl in a hole and die!

  8. All this talk about buffalo chicken has left me with some serious cravings! I’m already plotting tonights dinner!

  9. I really liked the movie too! I don’t know what was with all the haters!

  10. That all makes perfect sense to me too. I like the idea of cleaning during commercial breaks especially. ;)

    Buffalo anything is always a fave of mine. Your wrap sounds great.

  11. I’m so with you on cleaning. Little things each day really add up! :).

    And Buffalo Wild Wings–love that place but I havent been in FOREVER.

  12. I totally agree with SATC II. It was light and fun and I loved it. I too bawled throughout the whole first movie. The cosmos I had at the alcohol-allowed theater did not help with my emotions either, haha.

    I love buffalo chicken, and haven’t been to BWW in forever. Sounds delish!

  13. I went to BW3’s this weekend, too! YUM! So many people say they liked SATC…it was okay, but it wasn’t the 1st one!

  14. i absolutely hate cleaning too. but i tend to let things get so bad that i can’t *not* do it in one fell swoop because i’m also such a neat freak!

  15. Sunday Fundays are a great idea. I usually get all emo on Sundays because of the upcoming Monday.

    Great idea and love the blog!

  16. I love getting buffalo chicken wraps and fries :) good choice! And the beer sounds just as good!

    I can’t wait to see SATC!!!

  17. I hate cleaning so much. I do it in increments or it just doesn’t get done. I’m not so great in the housewife area. ;)

    So jealous you saw SATC2! There was NOT enough caffeine for me this morning!

  18. Wow – congrats on your 5k – that is awesome!! Super speedy. :-)

    I am the SAME way with cleaning. I actually put things on my to-do list, knowing full well I won’t end up getting to them that day. I want a MAID!

  19. I’m the same as you, I prefer cleaning a bit here and there rather than a full day. But my husband is the opposite and loves big cleaning days – so we end up doing it that way most of the time. I figure, if he’s willing to help, we can do it his way. :-)

  20. Omg I love their buffalo chips I haven’t had those in ages though so we need to change that….and of course wash down with beer!

    I’m not even a huge hockey person but was glued to the tube watching it last night. I can’t wait for football season to be here!

  21. I cannot wait to see SATC. I really loved the show and liked the first movie! I am happy to hear you liked it!

  22. That wrap sounds gooood!!! I’ve been meaning to make this buffalo chicken pizza but I haven’t gotten around to it.
