102 degrees is for sissy boys (or, I wrote my 'title' before I wrote my post)
This was one of his weekends off, and it was full to the brim. On Friday Ryan went to the store while I was at work and planned a fancy dinner. We had grilled veggies, and tuna steaks grilled on a cedar plank. Look at the deliciousness:
On Saturday we started the day off with a dog walk, then off to our tax lady's place (I love Uncle Sam!), then to our favorite bagel place, then we sadly went our own ways for a while. I was off to the hospital (my mom is not doing as well as we would like), then I was off to a dreaded bridal shower. Seriously? Why do we have those? I'd much rather just send an extra gift to the bride and call it good. The shower games and the watching the gift opening... I'd rather poke myself in the eye with a hot piece of iron.
I digress. Let's not forget that it was one of my most favorite holidays this weekend: St. Patty's day! I can totally get behind a holiday that'll require me to wear clothes that bring out the green in my eyes and also require me to drink copious amounts of beer! Oh.... beeeeeer.... mmmmm We went out w/ some new friends. Not only did we stay up past our normal weekend 10pm (yeah, I know, we're lame, don't make a big deal out of it), we got home at 1am! WEEEEEE!
And today? We accomplished two things: 1. New flip-flops. 2. I have an ass that is not made for any jeans ever conceived. But my husband? Shoved me into Nordstroms anyway and forced me into $200 jeans anyway. Seriously, I would never consider spending that much on a single piece of clothing, but he was determined.
Ok, so tell me.... Is it just me or are jeans made too small in the thighs and too big in the waist? I feel like my thighs are in a vice and the jeans pouch out in the back so when I sit my crack is showing. Is this just me?
I'll leave you today with Karma looking fierce, and a picture of the orange blossoms that are currently ruining my allergetic life... -A-
Dang, this post totally didn't go the way of the title or the intro paragraph. So... Ok, yeah, its freaking hot here but we make the most of it. Oh, and Ryan has the weekend off so we're filling every minute. And you really don't need the details. So there!
And also? Our weekend involves drinking. So apologies for the bad grammer and bad singing.
