Back to life

I am feeling soooo much better after one fun-filled weekend. Here's a re-cap...
Friday night not only involved sushi and beer, but we also managed to watch an unexpectedly hilarious movie - The Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller. Laughed so hard I almost peed my pants.

So on Saturday we headed over the border for our annual Curling tournament. Here's my team, The Hoser's. (if you're not familiar with the term "hoser", you can click here to educate yourself)

Here I am "throwing" the rock. Like a pro.

In between games, you get to go into the club house and watch everyone else make a fool out of themselves.
Speaking of making a fool of yourself - whoops!

Here's Marc and Brian calculating a strategy. And apparently it was a strategy that worked because "The Hoser's" came in first place!

And the "Ice Pirates" won the team spirit award.

But the competition doesn't end on the ice, there were still plenty of games of Jenga and Catch Phrase to be had! Here's Marc, Jeff and Mark in the middle of a very tense game...
And as if that wasn't enough fun for one weekend, I still got to go to my favorite restaurant to celebrate 2 of my friend's birthdays! Great food, drinks and company, how could you go wrong? Needless to say we had a great time!

And as I'm typing this post, I just got a phone call from my brother to tell me that Courtney is in labor again, but this time it's good news!!! I think it was more than 10 weeks ago that she went into labor the first time and she's been on bed-rest ever since. But now the baby should be big and healthy, so instead of this being a scary time, it's a very exciting time. I wonder if he'll be born tonight! I'll keep you posted!

So needless to say, I feel like I've been brought back to life and I think this is going to be a much better week...

I went curling once in my life...what a disaster! Looks like you had a much more successful night than I! Too fun!

I loved the heartbreak kid - a little uncomfortable at some parts but overall HYSTERICAL!!!!!!! And I must say The Ice Pirates are one good looking team, especially that handsome gent in the pirate hat!!!!!

This looks like a blast!!
Isn't "Hoser" from the movie Strange Brew? Eh?? I will definitely have to see the heartbreak kid--LOVE Ben Stiller!
