Lou & Mr. D cookin' our Kentucky breakfast while jammin' to Master P.
Mr. D rappin' along to Make 'Em Say Uhhhhh.
He thinks Master P is a poet.
After breakfast Mr. D built us a cozy fire in the fireplace and we all settled in to watch The Town. We loved the movie! If you haven't already seen it I highly recommend watching it. It had a little bit of everything...drama, action, romance, humor. Not to mention Ben Affleck looks reeeeally good in this one (even though I'm usually partial to my Mad Men hottie John Hamm, who is also in this movie, Benny boy definitely deserves the eye candy award for this movie).
Great movie. Definitely one to watch.
Later in the afternoon Shaan, Lou and I decided to take advantage of all the snow and go sledding...or sledging, as Shaan calls it. (Mr. D and I learned lots of English words while Shaan was with us. Apparently in England it's called a "sledge" and you would go "sledging" in the snow...not sledding.) We wanted Mr. D and T to come with us but unfortunately those two were feeling a bit under the weather after all their fun the previous night, so it was just the three of us for sledding.

Lou & Shaan's turn.
Sledging with Shaan & Lou!
Finally after our toes were good and frozen and our stomach's were growlin' it was time to head back to the house and defrost before our last dinner together. After dinner we decided we'd take it easy with another movie and some more chatting before calling it a night. We watched Charlie St. Cloud. It was a completely different type of movie than The Town but it was good...and Zac Efron looked amazing (which made me feel like a creepy old lady because he's so young). Charlie St. Cloud was entertaining and worth adding to your NetFliz queue or renting from Red Box...but not as thrilling as the Town - so if you're only planning on watching one of them definitely go with the Town.
Last Monday morning the vacation was over. Mr. D and I had to go back to work and our friends left. :( I was definitely sad for our reunion to be over but it was great to have a couple days to spend together. Spending time with old friends really puts things into perspective and makes me realize how fortunate I am to have so many wonderful people in my life.
Nine and half years ago fate brought Lou, T and I together while on a different continent...but here we are all these years later...still getting together and as close as ever. I'm so thankful God put these amazing guys in my life and even happier Mr. D and Shaan are now a part of our special friendship.
Thanks Lou, T and Shaan for coming to visit us and let's hurry and start planning our next holiday!
