Home again!

Yesterday I got back from vacation. In case you were wondering, I did not have a summer romance while on vacation. But let's be honest, we all knew that I'm not a summer fling kinda gal (not that there's anything wrong with girls like that).

Anyway, when we got back into town, Katherine and I met up with our old friend Dallan. (Dallan, you're in the blog!) We met up with him, his wife Bethany, and their two adorable kids at a restaurant in Detroit called Sweetwaters. Have you guys been there before? It was way good! We also saw some other friends, Tiffany and Edgar, who were there as well. They are two of the most "chill" people I've ever met. This is part of our conversation:

Edgar/Tiffany: "How are you? What's new?"
Me: "Not much. How about you guys?"
E/T: "Nothing's new."


Edgar: "Well, we are expecting."

I'm absolutely sure they're excited about it, but the way they said it was with the same enthusiasm as saying, "Well, we already ordered, but the waitress is coming back."

After that we met up with some friends and saw The Dark Knight, which was dark! I was scared out of my mind the whole time. But it was still good :). Anyway, I feel like the last couple posts (including this one) have been updates on my day to day life, which isn't really the direction I wanted to go with this blog, so I'm going to try to go back in another direction (Well, the next post, that is.) Thanks for humoring me by reading these ones.

I was scared of clowns before, but NOW...I'm never going to the circus again. And the next time I give you exciting news, I'm going to pretend that nothing's going on.

I have been loathe to admit this, but I couldn't sleep for HOURS after watching the Dark Knight. And I burst into tears leaving the theater, I think coming down from the adrenaline rush. So embarrassing. But it was good and well-done enough to scare the bejeez-us outta me.

Brandi, don't feel bad! You're not the only one! I was in shock as we were leaving the theater. It was a really scary and tense movie!

Glad to see I got a mention in one of your posts - and even a picture to boot! Thanks again for coming down to Detroit for dinner - it was so fun seeing you and Katherine again. We got back to Texas last night and it was 108. Sick.
