Asparagus, wine, & laughter

I love when I spend the majority of my weekend laughing.

It started with an epic trip to the grocery store. Normally this is something I loathe, but my trip was transformed in the produce section. I was choosing strawberries, and I overheard a dad tell his son they were going to get some asparagus. The boy literally started chanting, "Asparagus! Asparagus!" This went on for a full minute and I almost fell over laughing.

The laughter continued when that night the mister and I were about to sit down to watch a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory. I heard a loud noise and when I walked into the kitchen Ben was staring at the floor where a previously unopened bottle of wine lay shattered, and he was repeating, "It attacked me, it just jumped out of my hands!" I mean...you have to laugh, right? (I told him I'd clean it up, if he went and got another bottle).
(This is the biggest piece from the broken bottle. Please excuse the trash in the background).

Sunday brought book club, where we laughed, talked, and caught up, while a friend's five-year old son sat with the ladies eating fruit and spelling words for us. (And apparently he was very upset he didn't get a chance to say goodbye and wanted us to come back after we left so he could! Can you say melt my heart?)

Throw in some writing time, catching up with friends, a date with my husband, working on things for More Love Letters and you've got a pretty good weekend indeed.

How are you this fine Monday morning? What made you laugh this weekend?

Sounds like a lovely weekend! Bummer about the wine breaking - good thing it was white and not red! Red is HORRID to clean up. I mean any wine clean up sucks, but red is esp bad!

I had a good weekend, but I can't really say there was much laughter in it... that's not to say I didn't have a good weekend, it just wasn't one of those light hearted one where you laugh about a lot of things.

Aw I'm glad you had such a good weekend! We did a bunch of errand running this weekend which resulted in lots of laughs for us too. For some reason running random errands and window shopping is one of my favourite things to do with Eric!

Hooray for fun weekends filled with laughter. Sorry about the wine bottle though. I can definitely relate. I broke my first piece of fiesta ware a few weeks ago. The same thing happened, it just jumped out of my hand!
