the weekend was very nice. i sat down with a delicious cup of coffee after my weight watchers meeting saturday morning. i have a couple bags of very cheap espresso, that isn’t really espresso…
it was too weak for my bialetti espresso maker. but it makes an amazing cup of drip coffee.
saturday was a baby shower for the baby trail blazers in my group of college friends. i hate how graduations/showers/etc seem to suck away a whole day, but they’re all good reasons to celebrate.
i decided to get crafty and make a card, since i have “greeting card” paper that’s going to waste. ;-)
the drive there was slightly miserable.
but the weather cleared up at the end, and we didn’t have to play any baby-themed games, so i’d say it evened out.
i don’t usually say anything about being a vegetarian, because i don’t want a fuss, and i can usually find something to eat.
i had a roll, some caprese salad, and a really delicious romaine salad with red onion, sliced strawberries, and poppyseed dressing. i was leery about the dressing, but it was awesome.
the drive back home was much nicer, and i had EP to meet up with for a very nice sunday.
we went to applebee’s, had drinks, perused the used movie place (which is really a music store called tunes, but i only care about the movies), and saw ted. the movie was funny, i laughed out loud a bunch of times, slightly less raunchy than i thought, but i don’t think i’d watch it again.
i put back reality bites (but am about to buy it online) and notting hill, but this is the stack of dvds i bought.
i was excited to post my “weekend update” monday night, but i got entirely carried away with photographs.
i wait until snapfish has a good sale (because sometimes they’re REALLY good), and then i have 6 months of photo albums to catch up on…
this stack is entirely vacation pictures from mexico in may.
i think i got around 320 total.
:-) and then i spent allllll night trying to get them organized by date, and giving them a home in albums. the dates were a mess – i had to separate my order into thirds for the sale, but even in the thirds, everything was a total jumble. i decided to not get too crazy about perfection, but i had to go month-by-month on my computer, so it took… a few hours.
reward was looking through all the happy memories of the last 6 months. there were some really good ones.
