MMMM + Putting out fires already

Yeah, it is already one of those Mondays. Everyone’s annoyed or has issues and I have to fix them. But that’s ok; that’s my job. Anywho, you ready for the weekend recap? Are ya? Are ya??

You don’t have a choice. 🙂

SO, Friday, Ash and I took our half day. We had hibachi and beer then saw Equalizer 2. It was ok. I enjoyed it while watching it but it was one of those films where, when you finished and thought about it, turned out to have a lot of holes and issues. But I haven’t seen a really good movie in a long time, so what did I expect? We picked up the kids a bit early then went home to swim. Soon after, Ash and I decided to run up to McGowan’s for just a few hours. We had beer and bacon flights (yes, that’s right. I said Bacon Flight.)


It was definitely good, I can tell you that!

Saturday we did yard work and cleaning in the house, then errands. We also watched Batman Begins with the kids while it stormed. We had a crazy torrential downpour both days this weekend, resulting in a lot of flooding in the yard and downed limbs. So annoying!

It was a very relaxing yet productive weekend so, no complaints!


OK folks, freebie week. The first is a song I’ve been enjoying lately. As you may know, I have XM radio so I have carefully curated my stations to tailor to my likes.

And this one is from 3 Ninjas Kick Back, a cheesy 90s movie. My daughter discovered this series in our movie collection and cannot seem to stop watching them. LOL. Kind of cracks me up.

  1. I don’t think Hollywood is capable of making movies aren’t riddled with plot holes and inconsistencies anymore. They don’t even have good music like “3 Ninjas Fight Back,” either. I liked that song, by the way.

    Bacon flight? Yeah, baby….

  2. Bacon flights? What goes in the glass besides bacon??? My hubby is goin’ to love that one for sure.. hahahaha Sounds like a fun weekend my friend! Thanks for rockin’ the house and the introduction to new songs! hugs

  3. Claire,

    We haven’t seen any good new movies in years, either. They are spotty at best and even the ones I thought would be good often disappoint me. DH mentioned that The Equalizer 2 was getting excellent reviews. The first flick was good which actually surprised us both. Denzel Washington gets paired up with some real stinkers! I totally agree with about today’s movies not even having good mewsic. I like the smell of bacon, I even like the taste of it but I won’t eat it because of high-fat content unless I get turkey bacon. This doesn’t happen often, either. It seems as a society has a real bacon fixation. Just about everything you can think of has bacon added. Bacon Flights I imagine is an alcoholic drink, correct? If so, then I wouldn’t like it. I never got into drinking alcoholic beverages. The taste never suited me and now I’m really glad that it didn’t because that’s one thing less I have to worry about. I get enough high calories from my favorite fixation – ice cream! lol Thanks for sharing the dance floor with me!

  4. Bacon flights?? Now that’s a new one to me! I wish I would’ve thought about that back when I owned my bar. Knowing the crew of regulars that I had in that place, it totally would’ve gone over BIG!! I don’t think I’ve ever paired beer and bacon, just plain bacon. Sure I’ve had burgers and beer with bacon on the burger but just bacon? I guess that would make a good pairing…Austin is a funky town with a ton of bars so surely I can sniff out one that offers beer & bacon flights. 🙂

    Your second song, from the 3 Ninjas Kick Back movie, is actually good. At first I didn’t think I was going to like it but the more I listened, the more it started to grow on me.

    And now I’m on my second time listening to the Scorpions’ “The Zoo” in my headphones and they sound fabulous! I haven’t heard this song in quite a while so this is a real treat…

    Enjoy the rest of your week Claire. And be sure to carve out some more time for bacon flights outings…

    1. yeah I hadn’t heard of serving just pieces of bacon but for 5 bucks, it was a nice little snack to go along with the beer. It’s a good idea! Glad you enjoyed the songs.

  5. I had to google ‘Bacon Flights’ – it’s apparently a new thing with different flavorings/seasonings on the bacon…very interesting concept! Of course now I’m gonna have to make some of my own. 😉

    Thanks for the introduction on the two new (to me) tunes! I quite enjoyed them! 🙂
