Daydreaming with Friends

Cheer up, Bart. Milhouse is still going to need a true friend, someone to tell him he’s great. Someone to rub lotion on him. Someone he can hurl whiskey bottles at when he’s feeling low. -Lisa, The Simpsons

Friday night Match and I got to hang out with Couple Wife and Couple Hubby. They just recently moved into their first home, and it is beyond drool worthy. Their house is a 2 story, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, and it’s gorgeous! CW has the exact same taste I do in furniture and I couldn’t help but be jealous of their beautiful home. Someday…someday that will be us.

We all cozied up on the couch and watched a good but really random movie about a guy who thinks he’s a super hero but he’s completely delusional. It was pretty funny in parts, and I loved that CW and CH talked and made comments throughout it, just like Match and I do. It makes for a more entertaining movie.

After the movie, Couple Hubby and Match went out to the garage to look at CH’s project car. Match and I have talked about building a project car someday-I think it would be a lot of fun. While the boys were out talking men talk, Couple Wife and I looked at her wedding pictures. Their wedding was so beautiful! We talked about the cost, and all the details to remember. Since she just got married in July everything is all fresh in her mind, so I was grilling her for information. 🙂 I know it’s all wishful thinking right now, but it’s so much fun to talk about.

Saturday was the much awaited visit from Personality Twin. We started the afternoon off with just hanging out around the apartment. The first thing she said to me when she saw the changes I’d made since Match moved in was, “Wow, you’re a grown up now!” We spent the afternoon on the couch with our laptops, just casually hanging around the house. That’s what I love about PT-when it comes to being a guest, she’s very low maintenance. I can just relax and not have to worry about entertaining her. She’s very self sufficient!

So Match came home around 5, and I started cooking dinner. Match was being really goofy and cracking jokes to entertain Personality Twin. They seemed to get along right away which was so nice. PT and I had fun getting ready together, putting on our makeup in the guest bathroom, giggling and being girlie. She sat in the sink for some reason: it was random and made for an adorable picture.

We had a good time at karaoke even though Match’s cousin was a no show. So much for my match making skills! It was fun to people watch-there are some wacky people that come to karaoke bars. Plus the place we went to has a stripper pole on the karaoke stage, and of course the most unattractive people in the crowd are the ones that like to get up there and shake their stuff. Ewwww.

Sunday morning Match and I got to sleep in for us. His academy started at 9 instead of 8, so we slept some. Then I spent the morning snuggled up on the couch watching movies and waiting for PT to get up. We walked downtown and got breakfast, then headed to the mall after. I was getting really down about my recent weight gain, and I was joking around going to the health food store and buying the best diet pills they carry. But PT cheered me up and said I looked great. Still, I would like to lose about ten pounds, just gotta get some exercise. We also talked a lot about my potential wedding that’s going to happen someday. PT insisted on being the wedding planner, which I think is awesome. 🙂 She said when I get engaged she’ll come into town and help me figure everything out. I can’t wait for that day!

After the mall PT had to head home 🙁 and Match got the second half of the day off. It was so nice to get to spend the day together! We went to the park and went on a long walk, and worked out on the obstacle course there, doing crunches and push ups. After that we went to Match’s parents house and took pictures for our Christmas card. I’m so excited that we’re sending out a couples Christmas card! We started out trying to prop the camera on a rock and take the pictures ourselves. Of course those didn’t turn out that great, and we were having a hard time. Luckily Match’s mom showed up and took the pictures for us. She was great at taking pictures! I couldn’t believe the shots she got. The hard part is going to be deciding which one to use for our card!
