Good morning everyone! Hope your weekends are just as awesome as mine has been
Friday night was a fun, late night! As soon as we got home we both crashed out for a couple of hours. I guess neither one of us realized we were that tired! When we woke up we decided to celebrate Pizza Friday with a pie from Pizza Hut. KLASSY It was really good though since we were both really hungry after a couple hours of sleep. That night we stayed up and watched 3:10 to Yuma, Julie and Julia, and 3 episodes of Law & Order. Like I said, late night! (And sorry, no pictures…I figure y’all know what greasy pizza looks like at this point )
Yesterday we got up and went to take pictures of one of the cutest babies ever, Blake. He’s the son of some good friends of ours from church, and is just the sweetest little boy! It’s his 1 year birthday in a couple weeks, so we did some “studio” shots with our massive roll of studio paper and lighting. (Speaking of photography, you should check out our photography site. In the spirit of shameless self-promotion, we are totally open to travel, so if you or anyone you know of need a photographer for a wedding/baby/family portrait/event, please let me know!) Anyway, once Blake tired out, we packed up and decided to grab some sushi at a place we hadn’t tried yet. We started off with some cheesy crab wontons (I think that’s the name?):
Plus the presentation was so pretty! Don’t you just love how symmetrical sushi arrangements are? It’s not a TON of food, but they make it look so gorgeous that it promotes eating slowly and enjoying the meal!
I think I had 2 of each and decided to quit. For some reason I wasn’t feeling good at all, and even though I love sushi and could go fat kid on that whole platter, I just couldn’t eat more than 6 pieces. It was still really good though! When we go home we crashed (again) and watched Gladiator, and talked about going to see a movie. I have been wanting to go to the movie theater for a while, but our weekends have been pretty packed until now. We decided to go see Clash of the Titans. Was it good? Let’s just say you should wait til it comes to a Red Box near you. It was completely lacking in a plot, and although I was surprised at how clean it was sexually, it was just a stupid movie. Pretty much ruined Greek mythology for me…
…so we also decided to see Date Night. This was NOT clean, but I felt like it had a good message in the end about dating your spouse and sticking with marriage through the hard times. At the very least it made up for the horrible first movie! When we got home we cleaned up the house a bit and then went to bed. Our dogs think we’re the most boring people in the world…
I am now sipping on a Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Monster and writing this post!
I’m going to steal Caitlin’s idea from the other day and play the lotto game. If you won the lottery today, what would you do with the money? I would:
- Buy new cars
- A condo in the mountains for when we (or any friends or family) want to go skiing, and maybe something near the ocean
- Stop working and backpack through Europe for a couple of months
- Do missions work in Africa
- Help my parents and Nate’s parents pay off their homes/cars
- Donate a LOT to our church and various charities
- Spend the time that we’re not working to help others
Whew! That was harder than it looked! Happy Sunday everyone!
