Comfort food

It turned out to be a good thing that I had every intention of staying in this weekend, because my boyfriend and I both came down with something. I'm pretty convinced it has to do with the sudden weather changes (hey, even a high of 88 degrees is a 20 degree drop in temperature from what we've been used to!) and an onset of allergies. I tend to get my worst allergy symptoms in the fall, so they are right on time. I struggled with a nagging sinus headache for three days straight, while Steve was stuck with congestion, sneezing, coughing, and even dizziness at times. Not so good.
However, it was nice just to camp out on the sofa with plenty of snacks for the majority of the time. We had a little Gene Kelly marathon on Friday night with "On the Town" and "Singing in the Rain". I love that Steve enjoys old movies, like I do, and that he's been so receptive to some of my absolute favorites.

 Movie night! Hot dogs, popcorn, and one of our favorite candies, an assortment of Hershey's Nuggets.
We dragged the little guest room mattress out to the living room for maximum vegging. 
(Even some doggie feet got into this photo!)

Sunday, I made a big breakfast - eggs, bacon, french toast, and creme brulee coffee (Folger's Gourmet Selections brand), which we ate while watching the Texans game. Game outcome? Not good. Breakfast outcome? Yummo.

 It didn't last long...

I felt much better by Sunday evening and feel almost 100% back to normal today. I have a cast party to go to tonight (for a series I filmed a few weeks ago), and I can't wait!
How was your weekend??

  1. Yeah, well, I'm about to go stuff my face with 4 spicy crab rolls, shrimp Tempura, and whatever other kind of sushi I decide to order. Mmm.... better than sex.
