A Bit of This and That

How do you welcome your husband home after he's been at a convention all weekend?

With a homemade pizza, of course. My favorite variety has a simple crust from scratch, sausage, zucchini, and LOTS of mozzarella. In the past, I've sliced fresh tomatoes and drizzled olive oil, but since Sam inexplicably likes tomato sauce on his pizza, I opted for store bought pizza sauce this time. I've thought about adding mushrooms cause those flavors would be good together. Maybe next time...

On another note, my second class was canceled yesterday, so we got to spend an unplanned Valentine's Day together. We're loving re-watching Boy Meets World together, so we may or may not have spent a few hours curled up on the couch laughing at Cory, Shawn, and Topanga. Thank you Netflix for allowing us to relive our childhoods.

Since we didn't think we would be together on Monday, we celebrated Sunday by eating lunch at Carino's (my mouth is watering) and going to see our friend in The Diary of Anne Frank. The show was well done and has a powerful message. I highly recommend it if you're in the area.

This weekend, we're heading to the Metroplex to visit my family and a friend who just moved to start a new job! More on that later. Have a wonderful week!

When Houston Freezes Over

Husband and I spent his extra day off sleeping late, knitting (me), playing computer games (him), and working out together. In spite of the hazardous three bottom steps, which were frozen solid, our trek to the workout room was uneventful. Overall, we had a wonderful snow(less) day, and I got to enjoy more time with Sam than I had in a while. We finished the day with a dinner of queso and chili and a Netflix movie.
Today, the temperature is back up and the roads are clear, so we're heading to visit our niece and then go to the opera tonight with Sam's parents. This is shaping up to be a very good weekend. My favorite part about the Super Bowl is hanging out with friends and getting to create, then eat appetizers, so tomorrow should be good, too.
I hope your weekend (whatever the weather) is as pleasant as mine, or more if you can manage that. Good luck!
