It was a pretty great weekend. Busy, but pretty great. I'll give you the rundown:
Friday: I was minding my business, hopping on the treadmill at 5:25 pm, when Ammon texted me. You see, home-slice made the Dean's list last semester, and the awards ceremony was scheduled for 6:00pm, 30 minutes away (in good traffic, that is). After some yelling, inappropriate language, a Kristen-sized meltdown, and a frantic rush for the door, I managed to arrive only 10 minutes late for the ceremony. Thank heavens for maxi dresses. They can instantly make you look a little put together.
After that, I was HUNGRY (those ceremonies are long and boring, folks), I told Ammon he had to take me out to dinner to make up for the frenzy induced meltdown. We went and had delicious Nepali food. Nepali food is closely related to Indian food, but it's usually more spicy, and more delicious. I get too excited about my buffet to take pictures usually, but I did snag one of the perfect rice pudding, complemented by some grapes:
Saturday: I worked, and Ammon played in the shop. He's making some good progress on his 1,856,755 projects. After work, I went to Target to pick up some supplies while he continued playing, and then we both changed and went to the dinner theater.
We'd been a couple of times before, and we really enjoy it, so we decided to become season ticket holders for this season. For $29 per person, you get dinner and a show. Appetizers, desserts, and drinks are extra, but that's still a darn cheap date in my book. And look at how fancy and fun the drinks are...
I will say this: If you have the opportunity to see the musical "In the Heights", go see it. I cried, it was so captivating. Love, love, love.
Sunday: We went to Home Depot to get some wedding supplies. Multiple Sales Associates were pretty dang rude to us. We know from past experience that if you speak up to your cashier about the issues, they'll usually discount your sale, and I felt that was warranted today, since Ammon was considering leaving without buying anything. We took the discount, and while it didn't make things better, it did keep us from walking altogether.
Monday: Yup, I had no work yesterday, while poor Ammon had to go to work on his birthday. I discovered the BBC America show "The Nerdist", which is awesome if you are into nerdy things. You can check out the YouTube channel here. I also made a special dinner of candied butternut squash, mashed cauliflower, and porkchops. We went out for a slice of carrot cake after dinner, because I'm a horrible future-wife who completely forgot about dessert. I also forgot my phone, so you don't get to see proof. Sorry.
So that was our weekend over here! How was your weekend? Also, on our wedding blog today: Our sweet and silly proposal. Check it out!
