This weekend I got to celebrate the birthday of my good friend, Brady. He spoiled all of us by catering the party with food from Red Rock. I want to try to express to you how good the food was, but I'm afraid you'll just be like, "yeah yeah yeah, food is good, moving on..." But I need you to know that this food was good like whoa. You should go check it out for yourself. If you don't want to go by yourself, give me a call.
|Haaaaappy biiiiirthday to yooouuuuu!|
My grandma has been really concerned about how busy I've been lately. In fact, she has determined that if I don't rest more, I'm going to die young. I'm not exaggerating. She said, "I know you like doing stuff and staying busy, and I know I'm not your mom, but if you want to get married, you have to slow down. If you get married then and get sick, that won't be any fun for your husband." May I add or me. (Side note: I'm healthy and fine.)
For years I have been wanting a Kitchenaide mixer. My mom told me she'd get me one when I get married. But as my grandma is fond of saying, "I can't wait forever." So I saved up and this weekend I finally bought one. It was such a happy day. I am in love! Let the seasonal baking begin!
My uncle told me tonight that I was mentioned in an article about local legends! Unfortunately, I'm not the local legend. But my blog post in which I talked about local legends is referenced. Here is a link to it if you want to check it out. The best part of the shout out? They called me a "writer!" I want to find out who wrote the article and give them a good hardy pat on the back for that compliment.
I didn't get a chance to dress up this year, which was super disappointing. But it made me much more interested in looking at pictures of friends who dressed up! You people are so clever! But one of the best costumes I saw was that of my friend, Doug. He gave me permission to post this since he is no longer in the Witness Relocation Program. Is this the best Johnny Depp or what!?
He said that even people he is really close with didn't recognize him at the party. Seriously, I am so impressed.
I know how hardcore you guys think crafts are so I thought I'd show you a little craft I did this weekend. A week or so ago, I collected some pretty fall leaves. I didn't have time to do anything with them at the time, so I pressed them in a book until I was ready. Over the weekend I mod podged them to a piece of cardboard and framed it! It was easy and it turned out pretty good!
How about you? What are your weekend highlights?
