This weekend was a nice low-key one for us. We didn't have a lot of plans or obligations. It was a nice change of pace from our other weekends which usually tend to be on the busy side. Sometimes I really look forward to just relaxing. I think our lack of plans was mostly a result of Mike wanting to watch March Madness. But I am happy to report that I have a very happy husband because UNC -- and his bracket -- are doing well!
On Friday we had his parents over for dinner and some basketball watching. We made a new recipe that we found on Buzzfeed Tasty and it actually turned out really well! I was really nervous because making something for the first time ever and for company could go really wrong. It was called a meatball sub bake.
We also tried Tasty's Chicken Bombs on Sunday for dinner and this was also really delicious but we struggled a little more at getting it right. Once we ironed out the kinks, we were really happy with it!
Saturday we drove across the border to pick up a couple online orders at our mailbox. It was a beautiful day and there were lots of people out and about. The borders were a little busy but not too bad. Well, except that we had our car searched! We only had about $75 to declare and I guess that was abnormally low so they wanted to take a look to make sure we weren't hiding anything. And of course, they found nothing! While in the States, we lunched at Qdoba, our new favourite quick meal spot. I can't believe how long we have been missing out! But they just recently opened a location in Niagara Falls, NY so it wasn't really accessible before.
On Saturday night I was catching up on blogging and I came across Sara's post (from Running From Law) on her first Geocaching experience. I had heard about Geocaching before but never really knew the ins and outs. Basically, it's a world-wide scavenger hunt where items are placed for others to find. Her post really inspired me to give it a try and Mike and I went searching on Sunday! According to the website, there were several caches within walking distance of our house and we found two! I had so much fun and definitely plan on doing this again!
It turns out this seriously is a worldwide phenomenon because there's a bunch hidden around my grandparents' house in Poland! I immediately called them on Skype to tell them all about it and we are planning on going hunting when Mike and I visit in Poland! So fun. Thanks Sara!!
This past Sunday was also my cat Lenny's 16th birthday! For his birthday, he asked for an extra long fur brushing, a new box to play in, and no guests. We were happy to make all his wishes come true! He's such a sweet little guy. I love you, Lenny Benny!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
