Still Undefeated

An other weekend and yet an other win for the LSU Tigers. Which means we're undefeated and number 4 in the country. The game wasn't the prettiest, but we still managed to pull out a win. Next weekend we're playing number 1 Florida. Have I mentioned that next Saturday is also my birthday? I'm really really hoping we manage to pull out a win and my birthday isn't ruined. I told the boy to make sure to pass this message along to any football players he sees on campus, "I'd like a win for my birthday!"

Also this weekend we made a trip to Olive Garden for the never ending pasta bowl. I actually hadn't been to an Olive Garden until I went off to college. And now, well I won't go as far to say its my favorite restaurant (a la the Andrew Firestone season of The Bachelor), but I will say that I need a fix every few months or so.

I started off with spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was their new mushroom marinara sauce which was pretty good. I'd love to show you all pictures but I forgot my camera. I actually forgot my cell phone as well that night. I guess I was thinking to clearly when I left the apartment. My refill was again spaghetti and meatballs, but this time I went with their meat sauce. I didn't really eat my second bowl, instead brought it home for leftovers. I had about half for lunch today, and I'm planning on having the 2nd half for lunch tomorrow. Overall, 3 meals for under $10. Not too shabby.

As for the last few hours of the weekend? Well, the boy is currently watching the Saints game. We're winning and undefeated there as well. But the boy hasn't yet been able to convert me to a Saints fan. Instead I'm really just looking forward to watching Amazing Race, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters tonight!

And yes, have no fear we did still make it to the movies this weekend. I'll post a review tomorrow. Anyone want to guess which of the 3 new releases we saw?

I hope everyone else is having (or had) a great weekend as well.



  1. Happy early birthday! I don't care about LSU football (Sad huh? Considering I spent 4 years of my life there) but I hope they win next weekend 1) because it's your birthday and 2) because I really hate Florida.

    Olive Garden isn't my favorite restaurant but when I end up there, I enjoy it! I really like their salad even though it's nothing special.... Weird how that works.

  2. I never thought about getting the never-ending pasta bowl with the intent of using it for leftovers. Brilliant!!

  3. Whooooh Geaux Tigers!!!!

    I love Olive Garden's soup and salad deal

    Happy Early Bday

  4. Happy early Birthday!

    I used to go to OG all the time - should go back there soon. I love their salads!!

    Happy Birthday week to you! How fun that your bday falls on a weekend. Love when that happens!

  5. I've never been to Olive Garden but I've been DYING to go for a long time!!

  6. Yay for LSU. I didn't watch the game but I was talking to my mom and my dad was watching. I could hear him freaking out. It was funny!

    Every now and then the Olive Garden just hits the spot!

  7. I had always wanted to go to Olive Garden (their commercials make it look so good!) but then I tried it and... well, I think the pasta I make is much better.

  8. Happy Early Birthday! Hope it's a wonderful one!

    Even though I'm far from being an LSU fan, I would still like them to beat Florida! So here's to a win! Now that I think about it LSU and Florida both kicked my Buckeyes butt...too bad there's no ties in college football! :o) JK!
