Home is Where the TV is...

You'll all be happy to know that my favorite Saturday afternoon tradition seems to translate well to my new locale. I'm pretty sure it can all be summed up with this picture.
A couch + a beer + a TV
My sister, bro-in-law, and I weren't total lazy asses yesterday. We also went to the movies.

If relaxing and watching TV was a professional sport (um..I'd be an Olympic gold medalist), then going to the movies would be the equivalent of a "road game." 

Like the rest of the world who knows what is important, we went to see The Hunger Games. I give it two thumbs up. If I had a third hand then I'd give three thumbs up to Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. Although, I'm not sure the rest of the theater would. Every 10 minutes or so, about 5 people would get up and walk out of the theater. At one point, that number was as high as 10. It was such a noticeable amount of people that I thought maybe they knew something I didn't. Like, there was a bomb threat or it was an obnoxious movie-theater-disruption flash mob or something. Most of them would return sans concessions so the only conclusion I've been able to draw is that we attended a viewing of The Hungers Games along with members of the World's Smallest Bladders Coalition.  

After the lunchtime movie showing, we ventured back to the house to take our spots on the couch where  Melissa and I both promptly took cat naps. (Or should I say, "Kat" naps? Hunger Games word fun, y'all. Watch out - I'm on fire. I'm the GIRL on fire! Oooh, I did it AGAIN!)

The highlight of the afternoon was when, in between episodes of House Hunters, a "design tip" commercial showed my sister's throw pillows. We had to rewind and take a picture of her famous throw pillows. Pete didn't seem quite as thrilled as Melissa and I were about this. 

Melissa also stated that perhaps we shouldn't take naps on the pillows anymore since they're so famous and all. I'm pretty sure we took another nap a few hours later. (It's pretty exhausting up here, you guys.)

Now, before you think we are the laziest people you've ever met, I would like to add that my sister and I started the day checking out the Del Ray Farmers' Market. As you may know, I love a farmers' market. I was excited to learn that there are several within a 5-10 mile radius of Melissa and Pete's house and I was eager to check one out. I came home with some delicious bounty of broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, apples, and micro greens.  You should also know that it was raining so I think we get credit for not spending the whole day on the couch.

When I decided to start a blog, I promised myself that I would do at least one fun DC-area-specific activity per week to write about. I think the farmers' market counts. However, I promise to be more interesting and exciting next week. Which won't be hard to do because I'M MOVING. Perhaps I should have my Dad guest post about the adventures of packing up my apt in Charlotte. 

Oh, have I not mentioned that I have the best parents in the world? Rather than making me fly home and drive right back up here, they are handling loading and driving the truck. I guess I should buy them a pizza or something.
