It was a long, slow weekend, and the kids and I didn't even leave the house till today. Partially because I wanted to be conservative on gas, and mainly because staying home and being nice and cozy are the best parts of this time of year. I watched two movies--Machine Gun Preacher--it came highly recommended by Husband who watched it Friday night while I...I'm not sure what I was doing, so I watched it on Saturday while he was working. It was raw and heart-wrenching, and is a true story that people need to know. Most people have heard of KONY 2012, but not ex-gang biker turned preacher/African child defender, Sam Childers. An excellent flick. To make this weekend truly out of the ordinary, I watched another movie with Husband that very same day called, People Like Us. Two movies in one weekend, is big deal for me, while two movies in one day is a miracle! The relaxation was just what I needed.
Am I the only person who feels like Monday is makeup day for the weekend? Man. My family knows how to turn a house upside down, and it's always during the weekend that the most destruction takes place.
Did you catch the chili recipe I posted? It is my favorite chili recipe by far, and we ate it both Friday and Saturday. Leftovers sure make a girl happy!
I hope to post another favorite soup/stew recipe soon.
Hope your weekend was swell!
