I had a good weekend. On Saturday I went on a massive shopping tour all by myself. I went grocery shopping – which I personally think is fun, but I’ve known people *wink* who don’t enjoy that at all!- and then I went to IKEA.
Have I mentioned before that I LOVE IKEA?
I could go there every weekend! Well, this time we did have some urgent purchases to make. We desperately needed a clock for our living room and a window drape for our bathroom, but as always you end up buying more at IKEA than you have to.
I just love strolling through the exhibition rooms and being inspired by some new home accessories :) I bought a very nice picture for our living room and a bed set that matches the one that I brought from Germany – both was marked down, no better opportunity to buy stuff than when it is on sale ;)
We spent a relaxing Saturday night at home watching X-files and eating pasta with meatballs [according to J, the best pasta that you can find anywhere ;)].
Sunday was Superbowl Sunday. The weather couldn’t have been better [at least here in LA ;) in Florida it was
raining pouring the whole game!].
Jon and I were up at 8 am already. I got to talk to my sister and my parents in the morning, then we went for a nice walk. It was about 73Ã‚Â°F [= 24Ã‚Â°C] and we could walk around in shorts and flip flops :)
We got back in time to see the kick off at 3.25 p.m.
J was so nice to explain the basic football rules to me again before the game, because otherwise I would have been totally lost. The complete rules are far too complicated, if you ask me, but as long as I know who to cheer for in certain situations, all is good :) It was a good game and although we kind of cheered for the Chicago Bears, the Indianapolis Colts had earned the victory in the end.
People get crazy for the Superbowl. There were a ton of parties going on on our street and during half time, people were playing catch on the street. I wish we could have BBQed, because of the nice weather and because we could smell the BBQ from some place else, but we enjoyed our pizza just as much ;)
