Endless Bliss | Happy Lifestyle Blog: weekend full of love.

weekend full of love.

Whenever Jon comes to visit me, we always try to fit as much as possible into 2 1/2 days, and this weekend was no different. I haven't seen Jon for a few weeks, and he decided to come to Shreveport, because my co-worker was going to be in an opera this weekend.
Tosh walked into our picture then wouldn't sit still when we tried to take one with him.
On Friday, both of us were feeling pretty tired after a long workday, so we decided to take it easy and go see a movie. We agreed on Carrie. Jon and I rarely ever want to go see the same movies. I was starving, so I had to get some popcorn. Luckily, Jon hates popcorn, so I didn't have to share. Yum.
The movie was really awesome. I didn't think it would be because it's a re-remake, but I loved it! And so did Jon. We decided to go get burgers at Twisted Root after the movie. Jon had never been, and I had only gone once and loved it! We were The Fonz during our visit. Jon was embarrassed because I didn't know who he was, but then I looked him up and realized that I did. The embarrassment still ensued.
And this is The Fonz. Just so everyone knows.

Saturday, we slept in then went to the farmer's market around 10:30 am. I bought a ridiculous amount of stuff, more than I've ever bought at the farmer's market before, but I needed a lot of groceries. We walked around and ate a bunch of free samples then we had some pistolettes that weren't that great because they weren't really pistolettes. They weren't stuffed. Everything that it was supposed to be stuffed with was just poured on top. Um...that's not a pistolette at all.

After the farmer's market, Jon helped me find a dress for the opera... 
My newest LBD for just $19. Love the belt too!
...then we nerded out at Barnes and Noble - him in the classics and me at the Harry Potter display.
I don't know what use this will have in my life, but I know it would bring me happiness.
Saturday night, we met two of my co-workers, and my boss's daughter at Ernest's, which is a really awesome restaurant in Shreveport that I had never been to. I asked the bartender to make me something pink, fruity, and sweet, and he did. I asked him what it was, and he declared it The Tiffany, which is great except that I'll never be able to drink it again, because who knows what was actually mixed in it? Not me. 
What a handsome fellow.
After dinner, we went to the opera to see one of my co-workers in Elixir of Love. It was not what I was expecting. It was in Italian, but they had the English translation at the top. 
It was a very funny love story. A man named Nemorino, confesses his love to a beautiful girl named Adina. A sergeant comes into town and proposes to Adina. A "doctor" comes into town and Nemorino asks him for the love potion that was used on Isolde to make her fall in love with Tristan. The doctor gives Nemorino what he believes to be the elixir of love, but it is really just wine. All of the ladies fall for Nemorino when they discover that his uncle has died and left Nemorino a great fortune. Adina sees this and becomes jealous. Eventually she declares her love Nemorino. A lot of other stuff happens too, but that's the gist of it. It was a very funny opera, and Jon enjoyed it too.  
My favorite soldier! So glad I could support him in the opera!
Yesterday, we slept in again and then watched Lie to Me until we got hungry. Then we made some pizza and watched Friday's episode of Grimm and hung out with this guy for a little bit.
Luckily, I won't have to wait too too long till I get to see him again - just two weeks and I'm going to visit him and we're going to see Catching Fire!
Did you do anything exciting this weekend?
