Cozy Night In & Recent Ramblings

The weather has been too cold to do anything lately. We watched the National Championship game on Monday night and invited a couple over to join us, the girl said it was too cold to go out. I don't blame her, I didn't want to leave the house either.

Tuesday night we were determined to have fun even if we weren't snowed in, we were frozen in it felt like.
So we busted out my new backgammon board (Thanks to Dave for getting me this awesome gift for Christmas!), poured some wine, lit some candles and cozied up to the table to play!

After watching 3 YouTube videos on how to play backgammon we were ready!
I think this was around the time I said, "The hunt is over, the race is on." In my creepiest voice.

I beat him 2 out of 3 games. :)
I did have a lot more prior experience though... my Dad and I used to play all the time when I was younger.
We stayed warm and had fun without the TV. I'd say it was a successful night. :)

I also have to share a recent conversation:

Dave: Ugh I have to go to school until 4 tomorrow!!!!

Me: Oh how rough, I got home at 630, I don't want to hear it. Here I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, they will make it all better.
Me: You really ate 7 of those cookies, didn't you?

Dave: Yep, but it's ok I'm going to bench it out later.
Me: OoooooK
Dave: How many did you have?
Me: 2. I know my limits.
Dave: Psh whatever. (Lactaid commercial plays on TV)
Dave: Lactaid, it doesn't make me diarrhea on myself!
Me: ::smirks::

Dave: Sorry I'm on a sugar high. Hey Look! I'm holding Cooper in his pooping position
Me: That's nice babe. I'm going to bed.
Dave: Ahh ok I'll stop. Don't leave.

I think Break Dave is sticking around a little longer... and I'm totally ok with that. He's way more entertaining.

Oh my gosh! My husband got Backgammon for Christmas and after reading the directions 12 times, we were both like "uhh...let's play Spades instead!"

YouTube-ing for how-to videos is a great idea! We'll have to try that. Thanks! :)
