Gaming Sleepover Heaven

21 Jul

My favorite activity growing up was weekend sleepovers with friends. Staying up late, eating tons of junk and playing video games for hours on end was an awesome way to spend a night with your buddies from school. But now, as a married couple and full time students it seems as though those fun filled nights are over. Or are they??

get all those sexual innuendos out of your heads now … dirty minds.

Welcome to the Family, Xbox!

6 Jul

We’ve been holding out for a while on the buying an Xbox front. Trying to justify yet another console has been tough, but eventually my need to collect and Tony’s curiosity won over the logical portions of our brains. We were waiting for a sale in order to get both the Kinect and system for around 240, so when Best Buy had a sale we couldn’t resist!

Tony and I saw so much on our European adventure, and after a week of being home were finally getting back into routine of blogging and trying to catch up on all the cool things we saw while we were away. My absolute favorite stop in Paris was the Louvre, the biggest museum I have ever witnessed. In the 5 hours we spent we only saw about a quarter of what it had to offer. Crazy!

Even though we brought our Playstation, Nintendo DS, and computer stacked with PC games on our trip, Tony and I both still feel like we’ve been falling behind in our geekiness outlet. Disconnecting for a little while has been great, but I still have fallen behind in my daily Twitter and Facebook checking, as well as internet browsing of new reviews, comic book sales, and new movie trailers.

everything is incredible … if only there was wifi!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted, but my life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately, with dance, work, and getting ready for our European vacation (yes, it’s okay to be jealous). We have been in Belgium for a week now, and are finally getting back into the swing of things. One thing that HASN’T changed, however, is the gaming. With all this new found downtime, it has been fantastic catching up on some games!

please don’t judge the pyjamas or the posture. It is vacation, after all.

It’s been a little while since we posted here, and I’m blaming it on (FINALLY) getting some half decent weather around here and the fact that it has been a long weekend. Happy birthday Queen Victoria!

I googled queen and nerd and Felicia Day came up, so she’s going in.
