It has been a long time since I have posted a catch-up blog. So here it goes...
Friday: In the midst of a huge storm, Nik and I came right from work to Bonzai for a dinner with Lou and Ten, Ten's brother and sister-in-law, and their financial advisor, who is a really cool guy. After dinner we went to Dairy Queen.
Saturday: We woke up semi-early and made a sad attempt to clean our house. But the house was really bad and even a sad attempt made me feel better. Now it just looks like it needs to be cleaned. After cleaning we went to Lou's and carpooled to Charlie's play, Babes in Toyland. I have never seen this play before, so it was a real treat.
After the play we treated ourselves at a new cupcake/coffee shop called Diva's on 33rd So. BTW: Christi, I have been meaning to ask you if you have ever been here, cause it totally reminds me of a "you" kind of place. It was really tasty. I will not dream about the sticky buns.
We raced off to IKEA to do some last minute Christmas shopping (which was only half productive since Nik was with me and he is my primary worry right now). Later was the Christmas Shindig of the year at Sami's house! It was great to see people I love, and some that I have not seen in a long time. It was a great party Sami!!!
Sunday: Nik had a ton of Scout stuff to get done, so I did not see much of him at church, but I sang in the choir during Sacrament meeting. Which is a big deal for me, I don't sing. It was fun though. I never realized how big our congregation is! We were completely full!
I did some soldering stuff and took a nap, then we headed to my parents for a Surf and Turf dinner. Nik was beside himself with excitement. I'm not a big fan of the 'Surf' part, but the 'Turf' was very good. I did more soldering while the rest of the family watched It's a Wonderful Life. I like that movie, but I had a ton of stuff to do. We left mom's before the movie was over cause we had Jake and Crew coming over for some Rock Band. A good time was had by all. I had to kick everyone out at 11:30 cause I am old and tired. It was passed my bed time.
Well, it was a busy weekend, to be followed by a busy week. I am very much looking forward to our trip to St. George, it promises to be both relaxing and fun-filled.
Ok, I am off work and heading shopping and then to see little Kristin in The Nutcracker Ballet at Capitol Theater!
