Shifters and Wheels

I had an action-packed weekend and I think I need a week to recover from it, lol.

We spent Saturday at the coast - along with the rest of the world, and managed to get in a little beach time. The weather was gorgeous and the waves of the ocean were calming.

We had lunch at my dad's and bopped around town. We helped load the entertainment center he was giving us onto his truck and then he followed us to our place. It looks fantastic in our family room. We did pizza for dinner - very late - and I must have crawled into and passed out. I was exhausted.

Sunday my son had a Pokemon tournament, so we drove him there and then sweetie and I went off and did our own thing. We watched Lady in the Water, which I enjoyed. I can see where some people may not have liked it, but it fit my mood yesterday and I thought it was well done, aside from some silly stuff in there.

We also bought a new car! It's a 2006 Chevy Malibu in deep blue and oh baby I'm excited! *BG*

So, today I'm busy with promo, edits, writing, and updates.

Question of the day: If you were stranded on a beach but could have 1 fabulous meal magically appear - what would it be?

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Pop on over to MEA today and chat with me if you get a chance :) Off to report to the muse!

Wow, what a weekend Ann!

Congrats on the new blue car. I remeber how excited I was to get mine.

I would want a buffet of finger foods. Fancy little things that are no more than a bite or two each. Canapes, olives, petit fours, chocolate berries.

Jan Springer said...

Man! You are one busy chickee, Ann!
Looks like you had a fun weekend.
Congrats on the entertainment unit the pizza and the car. :-)


Jodie said...

What a weekend huh? Wow, nice car!

Shelli Stevens said...

Wow, busy bee you are! Hope you had fun on the coast! I'm jealous. Although I made it to the beach sort of too over the weekend!

Yay on the new car!

Karen Erickson said...

What a fun and busy weekend - yea on the new car!

Hmmm, meal while stranded on an island...that's tough. There's this restaurant I never get to go to anymore cos I have crazy kids that have the best steaks and a shrimp appetizer that's out of this world. I'll take that! :)

Stacy Dawn said...

Sounds like a fun weekend AND a new car to boot!

Y said...

Sounds like you had a GREAT weekend! The only bad thing about wonderful weekends is that you usually need time to recover from them. :)

Oh, and cool about the new car too!

See ya.

Ann Cory said...

THanks Jan :) We've been hoping for a new car for a long time, and it finally worked out.

mmmm, chocolate berries - you're making my mouth water!!! :)

Ann Cory said...

Hey Jan :) Yes, pizza and a new car - I don't really want much ;) lol

Thanks hon - so glad you stopped by!!

Ann Cory said...

Waving hi to Jodie :) Yes, crazy weekend - looking forward to a more relaxing one coming up. The zoo and a movie.

It's a pretty car, isn't it? Too bad I have to share, lol

Ann Cory said...

Hi sweet Shelli :) It was gorgeous at the beach, though very crowded. The nice thing was - as soon as I started walking on the sand and listened to the waves crash, I forgot about all those people. Well, until a kite almost tried to kill me, lol


Ann Cory said...

Karen - yummers!!! Steak and shrimp is like THE perfect combo :) I'll make sure you get that err...if you're ever stranded, lol.

Ann Cory said...

Hey miss Stacy - the hostess with the mostess - how many dress changes will you be doing at the awards show? You'll knock 'em dead in all those fancy duds!!


Ann Cory said...

Hey Y!!! Yes, that's exactly it - a week to recover from the weekend, lol. Though I'd prefer that than a weekend to recover from the week - not enough days that way, lol.
