In spite of all the reading and writing and studying, the man and I have still found some time to go out and enjoy ourselves (technically...we FORCEFULLY MADE time). We went to 2 movies: Scott Pilgrim, and Vampires Suck. Let me just say--Scott Pilgrim? "An epic of epic epicness" (scottpilgrimthemovie.com). Please, see the movie! It will better your life. As for Vampires Suck, well, it was funny, but I would put it in the 'wait 'til its in redbox' category. I also got out of making dinner for a couple nights, as we happened upon some free pizza for a work powwow and a class meeting. I love that you can always find free food somewhere around here. Speaking of which, Bread & Soup Nite starts soon! Yum. But anyway. On Sunday, we threw a huge dinner for a bunch of our friend family. I include this in my list of fun things we've done, because I enjoyed it! Part of that was the fact that I didn't have to do many dishes...we went disposable. We had a total of 12 people over, and we fed them ALL. And most recently on the list of things we've done was attending a good friend's birthday party, where we ate German chocolate cake and homemade Danish pastries.
It turned out super fun (it had to be, it was Star-Wars themed)! As a gift, we bought her a purple Betta fish, whom she named Fromage (I hope all you french-speakers understand the hilarity of this). So fitting. It was a great night--we got to see old friends, meet new people (one of whom I actually ended up recognizing from years ago), and we talked late into the night. 11pm is late for us. SHUT UP. Although we were told several times that night what a cool married couple we were! Which is nice to hear, because we both try to stay involved. What can I say? We love sticking ourselves smack-dab in the middle of life!
On a side note...these pillows were a late birthday gift from my mother-in-law! She made the quilted shams ( to match the bedspread which she ALSO made) and the white ruffly one herself! At last....I feel our bed is complete.
