Food, Friends and the Wii

On Saturday night we went to Keri and Evan’s for fun night of eating and playing their Wii.  G and I have never played the Wii (thankfully, G is too old to be into video games), and we were excited to try it out.


The most important part of the evening was the food, of course.


And there was a ton.  Keri and I went a little crazy and I’d eaten so many of my desserts before we got there, I was pretty much full.  Like I’ve said before, I have no self control so I ate more.


That’s homemade hummus with pita chips.  Keri also made salsa and guacamole.


Pizza pull-aparts: pizza dough with pepperoni and cheese inside!


Pretzel bites with ham and cheese on the left and macaroni and cheese bites on the right.

And there was also cheese dip!  OMG, way too much food and that doesn’t even count the desserts!  When we had it all set out, we finally realized we made a little too much.


But here are the desserts I made:


Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Bars


Oreo Truffles


Snickerdoodle Rick Krispie Treats


Peanut Butter Nutella Nutter Butter Pie

And I still can’t figure out why I’m so fat.  Hmm.

So after eating a ton of food, we thought we’d work it off by playing some games on the Wii.  We started with Wii bowling.  Of course, I perfected my form in just a few frames.


G took a little more time (he’s the black guy in the green square above…he got last).  But, as usual, G was giving 100%.  Just look at his form.


We played 3 games and I won 2 of them!


Evan was so disappointed in my score that he refused to open his eyes for my picture.  I don’t blame him.


G finally figured out how to use the Wii and got second place in our last game.  And yes, I really have that much junk in my trunk (actually, in my saddlebags).

After thoroughly enjoying our Wii bowling experience, we decided it was time to dance.


I’ve been wanting to try the dance games forever so I was so happy to find out that Keri and Evan have the game Just Dance.

After seeing the pictures Keri took of me dancing, I’ve decided (1) that I should never eat again and (2) that I should probably never dance in public again.



Apparently, I find it most helpful to dance with my mouth open.


Not surprisingly, I beat G at that game too.

The best part was seeing the boys go against each other.  I promised I wouldn’t take pictures (and I didn’t), but it was hilarious.  Keri and I were dying laughing.  Keri and Evan also played against each other.  And Keri won.

  Instead of winning a prize, G forced her to take a picture with him.  Sorry Keri.


And then I forced G to take one with me.


We had so much fun and ate so much food.  Thanks Keri and Evan, we hope you invite us over for a re-match!

  1. I love Wii Just Dance! I always think I look sooo good when I’m playing too, but it never really works out that way.

    That food looks so good. Especially those pizza puffs!

    I always find that dancing with my mouth open makes me a better dancer too.

    I think my fat role got a fat role just looking at the desserts. Not that anyone asked, but I think I cast my vote for the pie.
