This weekend the Super Koala and I had the house to ourselves because our parentals are in Cancun. They are super butt faces because the high temperatures here are about 60, and they are laying out on a beach right now, but at least we had an entire weekend of doing exactly what we wanted with no nagging.
Our super sister weekend started on Friday with Super Koala arriving in town very early because neither of us had school that day. We had decided to take a spontaneous trip to The Melting Pot other than our usual Christmas time visit, but our reservations weren’t until 9, so we went to the movies first.
Normally when we go to the movies we get kiddy combos as our snack of choice. This time they had extra special Peanuts Movie buckets for only 50 cents more. Of course we had to get them, and it was a really great idea because it was double the popcorn for only 50 cents!
Our movie of choice was Crimson Peak because Tom Hiddleston. He is so wonderful even if I hate scary/suspenseful movies. I did enjoy the movie, especially after the wonderful turn of events that was revealed in the last 30 seconds that made everything better.
When it was finally time for dinner, we gladly stuffed ourselves to the point of no return.
Whenever we go to the Melting Pot, we get the four course meal and it is always so delicious. For the cheese, we got the spinach artichoke dip which came with apples, bread, chips, and assorted vegetables to dip with.
This was the first time we had tried this cheese, and it was so good. Especially with the bread and chips. The next course was salad. We both got the caeser salad which contains the most delicious parmesan encrusted pine nuts ever, but we forgot to take a picture of this portion. For the main entree, I got the steak lovers platter, which contained three types of steak, and Super Koala got the vegetarian platter. Hers had so many types of vegetables, that she was not able to finish it all.
Finally came the dessert fondu. They had a special 40th anniversary dessert that consisted of white chocolate fondu with a molten lava cake on top. It. Was. Amazing.
After almost three hours and not being able to move much anymore, we headed home for bedtime because our Saturday adventures took place at my band competition.
This was a local competition at Seckman High School. Our band was one of the biggest there, which is uncommon, and we took first in our division in prelims, and then took first overall in finals.
During the day it warmed up okay, even enough for Super Koala and I to share a sno-cone,
but once the sun started to go down, the temperature plumeted and we were very cold for the rest of the night. We came home, but not before a trip to QT for hot chocolate and taquitos, and cuddled in bed while watching Scrubs on Netflix.
Today we made a trip to Barnes and Noble to pick out a new sister project to do. After looking around for about an hour, we decided on, Rip it! Write it! Draw it! It is a book very similar to Keri Smith’s Wreck This Journal, but it is something new with different activities in it.
We will now get back into regular weekly posting with my posts on Fridays and Super Koala’s on Mondays. Every week we will be completing two pages of the book, and this time we are going to do them in order.
That is all we have for now, thanks for reading!
