Scottso Does London

We had another visitor 2 weeks ago, Scott.

That’s him at the Crypt of St. Martin.

Anyway, back to our weekend. We did a lot in 4 days.

He showed up with presents for us!!

Velveeta for Jon and paydays for me!!

First we went to Jon’s favorite Chinese restaurant near Baker Street for dinner on Thursday.

Then we went to Jon’s favorite dim sum restaurant in Chinatown for lunch on Friday.

I’m not sure if Scott isn’t enjoying himself, hates the Christmas Crown Jon got him or I just caught him at a bad moment.

After lunch we checked out the fountain at Trafalgar Square.

 

On Saturday the boys went to an Arsenal game while I cooked and baked for the Ugly Christmas Sweater party were were going to Saturday night.

How ugly are our sweaters?!  Scott definitely had the ugliest one there!

On Sunday we walked around London a little more.

Stopping at Westminster Abbey.

And Buckingham Palace.

We got dinner at another one of Jon’s favorite Thai restaurants (do you see a theme happening?!) and then Scott headed back to NY on Monday morning.

Such a great weekend!  I hope you enjoyed it Scott!

How To Make 90 Minutes Fly By

Friday night was date night.  We went to The Gate for dim sum and then headed to the movies to see Due Date.  We got to the movies a little early (90 minutes early…oops) because I think we went to the wrong theater but that’s ok because this theater was in the Westfield Mall so there was plenty to do.

We bought tickets then roamed the mall. There is an ice skating rink in the mall until January so we were going to go ice skating but I wasn’t wearing socks so I quickly said no way to that idea so we watched the others skate around and fall a lot.

Next up…. Snog.

It’s exactly like Pinkberry, Red Mango & Berrywild.

Play around in the Apple store.  This could distract you for hours and hours.

Then we went to the Sony store to check out the new 3D TV.

I don’t think I could sit on my couch and watch TV for more than 15 minutes with these on.  What if you have glasses already?  They don’t fit over them. I also don’t think they are flattering in any way what-so-ever.

Those activities wasted enough time so we headed back to the theater.  The seats were assigned so we still had about 15 minutes so I had a little fun with my photography in the lobby of the theater.

I was a photography major in college and since blogging I’ve been playing around with it again.  I really missed it!  I really want a DSLR so I can have fun with it even more but they are so big and bulky so I’m not in any rush to get it yet.

Plus I’m a student.  BOOOOOO.

As for the movie…It was hilarious.  The Hangover is still the funniest movie out there but this movie kept us laughing.
