I don't know why, but this week has felt sooooo long. But it's Friday! Do you have any great plans for the weekend? I do! Once a month or so, we get together with friends and play games. Ah, but not just any ol' games. THE game. The Game of Thrones. It's a board game based on the book series by George R. R. Martin and it. is. amazing. It's kind of like Risk, only so much more complicated. There's lots of battles, scheming and betrayal. There's only 10 rounds in the game, so you'd think it would be a short game, but it's not. It generally takes about 4-6 hours to play through. 6 glorious hours. To top it all off, we got a new expansion for the game that changes it somewhat, so tonight we're heading over to my mother in law's house to try it out. I can't wait!

On Saturday, we're heading to the bowling alley for another birthday party. Nate's little sister, Mikallie, is turning 9 and what better place to have a party? Since we just had Damien's birthday party there, we know how fun it is! The kids get to bowl, eat pizza and cake and play in the arcade and the parents get to relax and let someone else plan the party. Oh wait, did I say relax? Ha! The place is a zoo! When we were there, they had about a dozen other parties going on. It's fun though. Loud, crowded fun.

What about you? What are your weekend plans?


  1. Date night tonight!! Have a great weekend - your game of Thrones game intrigues me - we loooove that show on TV and own all the books. I'll have to check out the game. Love you!

  2. Thanks Nomes! <3

    Yeah, you should definitely check the game out. It's a little pricey ($60 USDA) but it's soooo worth it, especially if you're a fan of the books and like strategy games. You can play with 3-6 players, but it's best with 6. We always try to fill it up :D.
