yoooooooooooooooooo

so the weekend was good, spent all of it at home in canton with my family and friends.

friday night was dinner at primo's in downtown canton with my mom, sister, yiayia (grandma) and thea (aunt) eros. i haven't gushed about a restaurant on this blog in awhile but seriously this traditional italian restaurant is the best i have ever been to and i am NOT exaggerating. i can't wait to go back again.

once i get all the garlic out of my system.

after dinner my sissy and i met up with my friends at legend's in north canton so we could sip up some stoli. i don't think i took any pictures from the evening. hold on, let me look...

yeah, no pictures. fail.

saturday we saw seven pounds and really enjoyed it, balled my eyes out but really enjoyed it. i finished up all of my christmas shopping as well on saturday. finished up meaning started AND finished within a five hour period.

but everything i did on saturday was just biding time till a midnight showing of the greatest christmas movie of all time
home alone.

seeing home alone on the big screen with twelve members of my family was such a treat. gosh i love that movie! love.

ok, so i know this post well, blows - don't lie to yourself, or me. but unfortunately it's almost 7:30 on sunday night and i have a crap load of stuff to prep for work tomorrow.

it's going to be a busy two and a half days of work before the christmas break, but the end is in sight.

by the way, this blog was written in eight minutes. it think that's a record for me.

have a good week everyone, thankfully it's a short one.

  6. I can't believe they showed Home Alone on the big screen, how fabulous was that? I'm envious. Have a great short week!

  7. Great Italian restaurant - I'm assuming it was the Olive Garden. Whenever my relatives fly in from Sicily, it's the first place they want to go.

    Okay, I don't have any relatives from Sicily, but those ads were so real, they feel like family members.

  10. Garlic is good for you. It lowers cholestrol. Savor it.

  11. Best Christmas movie ever is usually one I haven't ever seen before. I'm such a movie slacker that I take the down time around the holidays to see movies I haven't yet seen. I'm good like that.

    Stay warm, girl!

  12. At first I thought Primo's Deli in Akron. That place has the best sandwiches! And Peirogis! Love!

    I wanna see 7lbs I think I have it figured out, I think he gives his body parts away, namely his brain. I think this, becaue of the jerry mcguire kid, and "the human head weighs 8 lbs" and maybe his weighs 7 cus he's a man.

  17. HOME ALONE ON THE BIG SCREEN?

    that shit must have been amazing.

    i'm so jealous.

    (also, the commercials for seven pounds confuse me to the point where i don't even get what the movie is about. but i'm pretty sure it looks good. and you really enjoyed it. so maybe i shall venture to see it myself. will smith is kind of a movie god..)

  21. I used to love Home Alone too. Great movie. I'll keep seven pounds in mind, I have to admit, I don't know what it's about so I'm skeptical

  22. Home alone? That's amazing!

    Seven pounds looks amazing, with your recommendation maybe it's worth checking out... Thanks!

  23. Dude. I've watched Home Alone twice this year and I'm needing to see it again. Big Screen Home Alone? The thought alone just about BLOWS MY MIND. I'm insanely jealous.

    Also? I want to see Seven Pounds. I plan on bringing kleenex after your comments!

  25. My husband and I were watching Home Alone this past week and I forgot how damn funny it is. We were laughing our asses off. I dont know why but when Kevin pulls out the picture of Buzz's girlfriend out of the chest...and he makes a funny face....I cant stop laughing.

  26. ummm i am so with you that home alone is the best christmas movie of all. every time that version of "rockin around the christmas tree" comes on, my sister and i reenact the scene where he fakes out the robbers by making the cardboard cutouts dance.
