{Weekend Recap}

This weekend was almost as casual as it gets and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Friday we ordered a pizza from our favorite place Niki's. You can get an XL pizza with 3 toppings for $10... yeah! We rented "Man on a Ledge" from Redbox, starring Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, and Ed Harris. We gave it a 6/10.

As a police psychologist works to talk down an ex-con who is threatening to jump from a Manhattan hotel rooftop, the biggest diamond heist ever committed is in motion...

Saturday we spent some time in the yard making it look good. Then, we hit the neighborhood pool to cool off! In the mean time, MJ was smoking some baby back ribs on the grill which we had for a late lunch with loaded mashed potatoes and salad.

mmm hmm
I also got my delivery from Amazon with my Kindle and Babyliss hair straightener. I did some searching on Amazon and downloaded the first book in the James Patterson Women's Murder Club Series. Have you heard of or read these books yet? There are 11 books so far and if you like murder-mystery type books you'll like these.

"Four women-four friends-share a determination to stop a killer who has been stalking newlyweds in San Francisco. Each one holds a piece of the puzzle: Lindsay Boxer is a homicide inspector in the San Francisco Police Department, Claire Washburn is a medical examiner, Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A., and Cindy Thomas just started working the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle.

But the usual procedures aren't bringing them any closer to stopping the killings. So these women form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case by sidestepping their bosses and giving one another a hand.

The four women develop intense bonds as they pursue a killer whose crimes have stunned an entire city. Working together, they track down the most terrifying and unexpected killer they have ever encountered-before a shocking conclusion in which everything they knew turns out to be devastatingly wrong."

Sunday we drove up to Maypearl to visit my parents for Father's day! My dad, the chef, was of course making grilled chicken, smoked ribs (yeah ribs twice in one weekend), and a blueberry cheesecake! We all pitched in for an outdoor hammock which I didn't get a picture of, but here are a few pics I did get. We love you daddy! 

Blueberry cheesecake with an almond crust... oh yeah
Pioneer Women cookbook for the chef
Tractor suspenders for when he's on the tractor of course

I hope you had a good weekend too!
