Spring Break

Soooo . . . it's our spring break this week, and aside from a few day trips, we're hanging right here in good ol' Oxford. IF the weather had cooperated and been, you know, "springish", it would be a really fun week. Oxford is great when the college kids are gone and the town shifts down into low gear. But, the skies here are gray and it's chilly. So much for biking through the empty streets.

It's definitely not all doom and gloom, however. Here's a taste of what we have been doing:

Beignets for dinner (yes, that's bacon you see in the background).

Reading, reading, reading.

Catching up on hulu and youtube. Since I am such a Judy Blume fangirl (check out my post about seeing her in person here), I thought you should all see comedian Will Arnett (best known to me as Gob Bluth) reading from Are You There God? It's Me Margaret.

Now, let's all do a spring dance to summon the warm weather. It's time . . .

Beignets and bacon!!!

OMG, that is the BEST dinner ever!

Soooo envious.

We are eating In-n-out burger because I was too lame to make dinner after driving the girls to their Irish dancer performance.

I'm coming to your house for dinner!

A of all: I was already hungry. Now, i am starving. Looks yummy.

B of all: Will Arnett is hilarious. I love when Jimmy has people read stuff, like Jude Law doing Lady GaGa's "Pokerface" -- hysterical.

And that clip was so funny-not at all the way I pictured it when I read the book-but so funny. Thanks!

Joanna said...

Did anyone else see one of my FIRST tweets when I said that Gob Bluth is possibly one of the best TV characters ever created?? I love, love Will Arnett!!

And Margaret is one of my favorite books of all time.

You. Rock.
