I decided a while ago that I would come home over President's Day weekend. Come to find out, my parents decided to take the fam on a trip to Island Park! I was excited and hoped that I could go, but, alas, I could not. They left on Friday morning and I just couldn't miss all my Friday classes and my Friday work shifts. Bum deal. I decided to come home anyway, though (cause I figured I'd have more to do here than in Logan, since most people were leaving Logan too). So, I packed a bunch of things to keep me entertained while I was here (like all the seasons of Gilmore Girls and a couple of books. I may have over prepared...) but I ended up not using them hardly at all! It turned into a pretty good, eventful weekend.
On Friday before I left, my cute married friends Arianne and Dean had me over for dinner. It was delish! I love Arianne. She's prego and due with a baby boy in May! So excited for her. Then, I came home. And I cleaned. The whole house. Yeah... I'm a weirdo. But remember how I like cleaning? Then I fell asleep to the sound of the TV, cause this house makes creepy noises at night and my imagination likes to go crazy and tell me that there's a murderer/rapist/robber/creepo sneaking around. And we can't have that.
Saturday morning rolled around, and I slept in, practiced, got ready, and WENT SHOPPING! And I totally bought something awesome -- A COOKIE! A Mrs. Field's milk chocolate chip cookie, to be exact. And that's all I bought. That's what happens when you're extraordinarily poor and none of the clothing or shoes under $10 are appealing.
That night I went to my cousin's house to celebrate Michelle's and Kevin's birthdays. It was a blast and a half. The dinner... MMM. London Broil, twice-baked-potatoes, yams, salad, the works. SO good. Then dear Annie made a Red Velvet cake with a cheesecake layer in the middle, HOLY DELICIOUS! 'Twas awesome. Annie and I got some good girl talk in before she had to head back to Provo.
Then, I got a text from Kjarinda inviting me to dinner with her, Brit, and Jana. I had already eaten (as I mentioned) but I decided to go hang with them anyway and watch them eat their food. :) Love these ladies!
|yes, we were all there together. don't ask me why we didn't get a picture of all of us.|
After that, we headed back to Kjarinda's to play that one dance game on Kinect. Then, we went to my house and Brit, Jana, and I watched a movie. It was so good to see them and catch up!
I was preparing for a good Sunday alone, when I got a text from my roommate inviting me to dinner with her family! (Man, see how well I'm taken care of? People are so nice to me). So after church I headed over there to have a delicious dinner and some amazing chocolate pie (is this post all about food or what?) with her cute family. After some piano playin -- her 4-year-old sister is quite the pianist -- and some movie watchin, I headed home. Sounds pretty neato, right? It was.
But then, well....... then..... I got...... a migraine. And I spent the rest of the night feeling like I was going to die. So that was a party. I still feel kind of blah, honestly. And I haven't done my homework yet! So, naturally, I'm blogging. Anyway... my family will be home in a few hours and I'm excited to see them for a little bit before I have to head back to Logan. Even though I was prepared and kind of excited for a weekend all to myself, I'm glad that it turned out to be pretty social. I love my friends and family! They're the best.
