This weekend I...

My first “This Weekend I” link up with the lovely ladies from Synfully Delicious and Life of Love!

This weekend I had dinner with eM’s family on Friday: the parents, two younger sisters and their boyfriends. His mom made some rockin’ shrimp cocktail and fish tacos! With all the couples there, we played the Newly Wed game. It should really be called the Divorce Game because a number of times your significant other answers the questions that makes you say “What!?!? So tell me how you really feel!!” It really was outrageously fun! eM and I ended with the most points and took home the jackpot of $8 and a $5 Subway gift card woohoo!

This weekend I finally took the leap and opened my new jewelry shop on Etsy (ULIAs Corner). It is a little sparse now but I am slowly putting it all together. I did a lot of research and read a lot of posts from successful Etsians and already know that it is going to be a challenge to get things going, especially when the market is already inundated with jewelry sellers, but nonetheless I am still very excited about this new happening! Please drop by to take a look (also see sidebar for sample of items), and if you are a follower of my blog you will get 10 percent off your entire first purchase!

This weekend eM and I feasted at Soup Plantation after a rear-kicking circuit training workout.

Then we saw Silver Linings Playbook. It was an awesome movie {Psst…don’t tell anyone but I got teary-eyed at the end!}. Have you seen it yet? We also Redboxed Taken 2. For me it was “eh” only because I’m not a big action fan.

Cooking this weekend was easy: tuna salad.

7 cans of tuna (drained)
2 prepackaged bags of salad greens
3 avocados (diced)
1 can of corn
1 can of jalapenos (diced)
¼ of yellow onion (diced)

Mix everything together, add a little bit of the jalapeno juice, and WALA DONE!!!

How was your weekend? Be sure to link up with Syndal and Sarah!

  1. I haven't been able to get into Silver Linings Playbook--I just didn't like it at all. Glad you liked it, though!

    Also, woohoo for winning the Newlywed Game! Giftcards are always fun!

    Thanks for linking up, Andrea!

  2. I will be watching that movie tonight!!! :)
