Day #30 - Day of Rest and Ice Cream Sandwiches

Gonna make this real quick because today is my day off and the last thing I want to do is stare at a computer. No offense, love you guys. Hate the computer.

Goals of the day:
1. Make pulled pork sandwiches, cole slaw, and baked beans. Gonna be a pretty solid food day.
2. Movie hop. Why pay for two when you can get away with only paying for 1? Yes, I know I'm not 13 anymore. But I'm broke and get off on cheap thrills.
3. Eat the bf's ice cream sandwich cake I made him for his birthday. Yup, you heard right....a tower of ice cream sandwiches.

Gotta go, I obviously have an intense day in front of me.
