Weekend Recap

06/13/2011 at 11:45 am 52 comments

Hi there!! Hope you all had a great weekend. I know I did, although I would have been happier had the Miami Heat actually won last night https://i0.wp.com/i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn245/marie01_08/Smileys%20and%20Stuff/AnimatedSadSmiley-1.gif Oh well can’t win them all…

Friday night I went out with my girlfriends to watch

https://i2.wp.com/www.flicksandbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/the-hangover-part-2-banner-image1.jpgOverall is was funny but definitely not as good as part 1. I thought they were trying too hard to make it like the original.

After the movie, me and the girls went to our usual hangout spot (Denny’s!!!) to have some late night munching. There’s a pretty good chance on any given Friday or Saturday night that you’ll find me at Denny’s after midnight. Usually polishing off one of these…

When I say I can finish off an entire Oreo sundae, I mean it people Winking smile

Saturday morning I was up early at 8am to hit up Zumba and get my dance on. I love when exercising doesn’t feel like working out. It was a lot of fun but I was ready for breakfast when I got home.

I had some cereal Surprised smile Don’t get me wrong, I love my oats but it’s just way too hot!! And to be honest I’ve gotten lazy in making them lol

Cinnamon Burst Cheerios with sliced strawberries, yogurt, cottage cheese, 1/2 nanner somewhere in there and topped with milk New obsession? You betcha!

Saturday night I went bowling with my friends and my skills were lacking to say the least. A lot of gutter balls and failed attempts. Still fun to get out of the house and do something different.

Well there you have it peeps! My weekend recap Smile

Have you seen The Hangover 2? Love it/hate it? Sequels are hardly ever better than the original

    Not yet, but it’s on my list. I appreciate a good laugh.

    Even on the hottest days of summer, I still like my hot oats.

  • 2. Claire @ Live & Love to Eat  |  06/13/2011 at 11:53 am

    I thought it was only about 1/4 as funny as the first!

  • 3. kat  |  06/13/2011 at 12:00 pm

    My hubby loves the first hangover, and he wants to see the second but I have heard that the second is not as funny, so I think he is going to wait till it comes out on dvd to rent. Movies are so expensive now, so we try to pick and choose!! Sorry to hear about your heat!!

  • 4. EmilyInProgress  |  06/13/2011 at 12:10 pm

    I haven’t seen any movies lately! I need to get to the movie theater!

    And apparently the bowling alley! Sounds like a really fun weekend!

  • 5. cinnamonalicious  |  06/13/2011 at 12:16 pm

    Looks like a fun weekend 🙂 I polished off a huge sundae too, proud of it! 😀
    I haven’t seen it yet but really want to…although I always think that sequels never live up to the original, I think I’ll still get some belly laughs!

  • 6. Peanut Butter Bandit  |  06/13/2011 at 12:21 pm

    I’m definitely gonna try that cereal combo… I’ll do anything to make cereal more filling! 🙂 Lately I’ve been adding nut butter to cereal, and it helps a bit.

    Glad you had a fun weekend!

  • 7. Andrea @ Vegvacious  |  06/13/2011 at 12:23 pm

    I could definitely demolish one of those sundaes all on my own — haha – I can totally relate to your love of oreos my friend 🙂

  • 8. movesnmunchies  |  06/13/2011 at 12:28 pm

    i havent!! i actually havent even seen 1! i only saw a part of it then fell asleep… oops!

  • 9. Cait @ Beyond Bananas  |  06/13/2011 at 12:34 pm

    I saw Hangover 2 and had the same thoughts as you. It wasn’t as good as the first.. but I found myself laughing a lot. For a sequal.. it was pretty good though.

  • 10. TheNoviceNosher  |  06/13/2011 at 12:47 pm

    I think I’m going to wait till the Hangover 2 comes out on DVD. I’ve heard so many reviews saying it wasn’t that great. I loved the first one though so I may find the 2nd one good!

    I totally feel you on the bowling thing. I’m horrible at any sport that involves kicking, throwing, or rolling a ball!

  • 11. Tiff  |  06/13/2011 at 12:53 pm

    I haven’t seen it yet. I also have never visited a Denny’s, but that was before I knew they had Oreo sundaes!

  • 12. Kristen @ The Red Velvet Life  |  06/13/2011 at 1:01 pm

    I didn’t think Hangover II was great either — honestly it was too raunchy for me, but maybe I’m just an old lady now. 🙂 I saw it in Vegas last weekend, so that was the fun part! Glad you had a fun weekend!

  • 13. Kelsey @ Unmitigated Grub  |  06/13/2011 at 1:01 pm

    my bf saw the hangover 2 and said the same thing! I think I’ll rent it if I see it at all.

    that cereal looks delish 🙂

  • 14. Amanda @ Running with Spoons  |  06/13/2011 at 1:08 pm

    I haven’t seen the sequel and I’ll probably just wait until it comes out on DVD. With a few exceptions, I definitely agree that the originals are usually the best. And that sundae… GAH! girl, stop making me drool ’cause now I gotta bust out the Kleenex.

  • 15. char on a mission  |  06/13/2011 at 1:10 pm

    I’ve heard that the Hangover part II wasn’t that good, but for some reason, I do still want to see it. Maybe just on cheap night or something! HAHA Please don’t even talk to me about ice-cream – I dominate it ALL the time! lol

  • 16. seegirlsmile  |  06/13/2011 at 1:18 pm

    Haven’t seen it. But I loved the first one…it helps lift my spirits on a down kind of day!

  • 17. Tara  |  06/13/2011 at 1:18 pm

    I still haven’t seen either Hangover. My friends always talk about how I need to see it! I’m just not a movie person!! Maybe if they told me I could get that Sunday afterward I would go though 🙂

  • 18. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!  |  06/13/2011 at 1:30 pm

    I wanna see Hangover 2!!!! People are saying it isnt as good but I still want to see it…..I just like the actors! LOL!

  • 19. Sweet Cheeks  |  06/13/2011 at 2:01 pm

    I haven’t seen that movie yet…thanks for the review; I think I’ll wait for it to come out on DVD!

    Zumba is so much fun. I don’t know why I haven’t done it in so long. That will have to change soon!

    Have a great day!

  • 20. Erin @ The Grass Skirt  |  06/13/2011 at 2:04 pm

    I saw The Hangover Part II over the weekend too! I thought it was OK, but like you said, trying too hard. I actually thought the original tried too hard to be funny too and went a bit over the top…but then I have to remind myself that it is a silly comedy after all. 🙂

  • 21. Daniella @ Runner at Heart  |  06/13/2011 at 2:08 pm

    I saw the Hangover 2 and I loved it and thought it was just as funny as the first.

  • 22. runningtothekitchen  |  06/13/2011 at 2:13 pm

    I’ve heard so many people say the hangover 2 was just like the 1st except with a monkey that I have no desire to spend $20 on the 2 of us seeing it. It’s a netflix one for sure 🙂

  • 23. cottercrunch  |  06/13/2011 at 2:25 pm

    i gotta see that movie soon! it looks hilarious! fun weekend friend.

  • 24. cottercrunch  |  06/13/2011 at 2:26 pm

    sorry about miami, but I am not sorry about MAVS!! woo hoo. I know, good game though, right?
    Looks like a great weekend!

  • 25. Mary @ Bites and Bliss  |  06/13/2011 at 2:42 pm

    I really want to see that!! I loved the first one and this one looks just as funny.

  • 26. Lindsay Cotter  |  06/13/2011 at 3:06 pm

    for some reason my comments are not showing up. Sorry if this is a mutiple, and sorry for miami. EEK! but love my MAVS!

  • 27. Ellie@fitforthesoul  |  06/13/2011 at 4:30 pm

    I haven’t seen it but everyone seems to like the Hangover! Hmm…
    I love playing sports of all kinds but I always get sore about bowling!! I think it’s because it’s my worst skill lacking sport for me! 😛 I have to get over this hahaha.

  • 28. pumpedforpumpkin  |  06/13/2011 at 5:24 pm

    I haven’t seen the new one yet! I don’t really plan on it until it comes out on dvd. I’m not a movie person. I get so bored! That sundae look(ed) amazing! haha I haven’t had one in ages

  • 29. Caroline  |  06/13/2011 at 5:40 pm

    I’ve actually yet to see the Hangover II, but have heard mixed things about the movie. Most everyone has said that it’s not as good as the first, but that’s a pretty tough movie to compete with! Looks like that was a delicious Oreo sundae. 🙂

  • 30. Jenna-Marie  |  06/13/2011 at 5:44 pm

    That cereal looks tremendous. I’m thinkin of mixing some Banana Nut Cherrios,Cinnamon Burst Cherrios and Chocolate Cherrios together and having a legit party for breakfast.

    And it is not humanly possible to not finish an Oreo sundae…thats a crime. 🙂

  • 31. Maria  |  06/13/2011 at 5:55 pm

    Loving the cereal… I’m finding it a bit too hot for oats sometimes here in the UK (but only sometimes, its been raining solidly for the last week haha). And oreo sundae? ermm… yum. Nuff said 🙂

  • 32. Vanillandspice  |  06/13/2011 at 6:04 pm

    I definitely thought they were trying too hard to make it better than the first. Some parts in the movie seemed so strained to be funny that I just didn’t find them funny anymore lol. It was ok, but nowhere near the first one!

  • 33. Laury@thefitnessdish  |  06/13/2011 at 7:40 pm

    I want to see The Hangover II..heard for a sequel it’s pretty good! I doubt it will be better than the first like you said. There are no good movies out right now so it’s slim pickings!

  • 34. Rasha @ PBAddiction  |  06/13/2011 at 8:03 pm

    Haven’t seen Hangover 2 yet but even though I’ve heard from many places it’s not as good as the first, I still want to see it! Maybe when it’s out on DVD though.

  • 35. Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food  |  06/13/2011 at 8:56 pm

    So glad you had such a good weekend Jenny! 🙂

    I haven’t seen hangover 1 or 2 and I really want to! I love ridiculous movies like that and Bradley Cooper is pretty easy on the eyes 🙂

    You should do overnight oats or your yummy cookie dough cold oats, not to much prep at all! 🙂

    Hope you have a great week! 🙂

  • 36. BrittFit  |  06/13/2011 at 10:17 pm

    omg that looks soo gooooooood! I must try those cheerios and cereal with cottage cheese? thats new!

  • 37. allieatfood  |  06/13/2011 at 11:10 pm

    I saw the Hangover II as well and felt the same…just eh. Some really funny parts but not as good as the first. When I first saw your cereal I was thinking that looks so weird! But then I realized you weren’t eating it with milk!! There aren’t really any Denny’s around here but now I have a hankering for a sundae!

  • 38. Gina  |  06/14/2011 at 12:32 am

    I could totally polish off one of those sundaes too! I love sweets way too much 🙂
    Your cereal concoction looks great, simple and delicious!

  • 39. Lauren  |  06/14/2011 at 1:16 am

    The general consensus seems to be that Hangover 2 is not as good, darn! I agree that it is WAY too hot for oats. I’ve been on an overnight oat kick for months now and every time I make hot oats I’m annoyed by how long they take compared to the cold version. Oh and fact: my boyfriend is a bowler. Like bowls in a league and has bowled a perfect game before. It makes me NEVER want to bowl with him because he tries to coach me!

  • 40. Jackie @ Baking Charms  |  06/14/2011 at 9:26 am

    Lots of nakedness in the second one lol I thought it was funny but like you said – trying a bit too hard!

  • 41. paoang  |  06/14/2011 at 10:57 am

    Sounds like a fun weekend Jenny! I did see the Hangover, but I agree- sequels are hardly ever better! Haha, and I can definitely relate to the bowling thing…I kind of suck XD

  • 42. Sara @ Nourish and Flourish  |  06/14/2011 at 11:11 am

    When I’m home, my friends and I always hit up Denny’s or Perkins for a late-night nosh. It’s a tradition from high school…and so much fun!

  • 43. Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes  |  06/14/2011 at 11:56 am

    I haven’t even seen the first one yet. I have heard great things about both movies though.

  • 44. leashieloo  |  06/14/2011 at 12:03 pm

    I totally agree with you about Hangover 2 trying wayyy to hard to be the first movie, which was classic. I fear what they’re going to do with the third installation!

  • 45. Alexa @ Simple Eats  |  06/14/2011 at 2:03 pm

    Oh I’m with ya girl, I can totally devour an Oreo ice cream sundae. I think you and I are Oreo queens!

  • 46. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries  |  06/14/2011 at 4:13 pm

    I love you for eating that sundae! 🙂 And I really liked the Hangover 2, but I agree with you – it was the same as the first, just with a different location and a different missing person 😉

  • 47. simplynutritiouskate  |  06/14/2011 at 4:58 pm

    I need to try zumba again its been years but im a terrible dancer.. I love working out when I dont feel like it, I love the feeling afterwards!

  • 48. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)  |  06/14/2011 at 5:10 pm

    I didn’t like the first Hangover movie, so I think I’ll pass on the second one. However, I do love cinnamon Cheerios and Oreo sundaes 🙂

  • 49. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  06/14/2011 at 7:23 pm

    I’m seeing the Hangover 2 tonight! Even if it isn’t as good as the first, at least there’s still Bradley Cooper for some eye candy. 😉

  • 50. Parita  |  06/14/2011 at 7:26 pm

    I’ve heard Hangover 2 is very predictable if you’ve seen the first one. Boo! Glad you had a fun weekend!

  • 51. fashionfitnessfoodie  |  06/14/2011 at 9:23 pm

    I have been obsessed with those cheerios lately too! They are taking over my life.

  • 52. tricia  |  06/14/2011 at 9:55 pm

    thanks for the review, I think I’ll wait until it goes to dvd.

    yum! I’ve been switching my normal oats out for cereal too
