This past week Travel Girl, Match’s sister, was in town visiting from Peru. We spent the majority of our time at Match’s parents spending time with his sis and the fam, and also their newest addition to the family, an adorable standard poodle puppy.
We had a great time on the 4th of July playing Bocce Ball at Match and TG’s aunt’s house. TG and I had time for a little bit of girl talk which was fun.Â She’s really easy to talk to, and I feel really comfortable around her. She regaled some of her stories of traveling in Peru, and also some of the dating she’s done while there. I can tell she’s finally starting to want a boyfriend and a bit of stability. I just hope that someday she’ll want that state side. Though a visit to Peru would be a lot of fun!
Wednesday proved to be a crazy day for me. Right before I got off work, I was sitting at my desk, minding my business when I heard yelling outside. To make a long story short I was an eye witness to a nasty hit and run between a man driving a van and his wife’s SUV which he decided to back into on purpose and plow two feet into the curb. It was crazy scary, and I spent the afternoon with a coworker comforting the wife and her young son who was in the SUV with her. Thank god they weren’t hurt, and they’re pressing charges on her abusive husband. That really woke me up on a sleepy midday work day!!
Wednesday night we had game night with Couple Friends, Travel Girl, and Nice Guy. Couple Friends brought over Couple Hubby’s tuxedo from his wedding for Match to borrow for the upcoming “Prom Re-Do” that’s happening on the 25th. Match looked so sexy in a tux! Can’t wait for Couple Wife’s birthday Prom bash. Don’t worry, more pics of both him in a tux, and me in my fancy dress to follow that weekend.Couple Baby got to meet my dog Monkey for the first time and they did pretty well together I think.
Friday night Match and I went to dinner with his fam, and then met up downtown with Drama Chick and B. It was a fun time, but both Match and I agreed the bars really aren’t for us anymore, and that game nights and house parties are more our thing.
Saturday we took Travel Chick with us on a day trip to Sausalito. We had big plans of walking around downtown by the pier and enjoying a relaxing afternoon. We didn’t realize that where we parked was really far from the pier, so our relaxing walk was more of a trek. The downtown was nowhere close by, and we were exhausted at that point, but we managed to enjoy a nice picnic lunch by the docks and watch the boats go by. It’s a really pretty spot isn’t it?
Travel Girl headed back to Peru early this morning, and I’m sad that she’s gone. We had a great visit, and I feel like I’m really getting to know her. Plus every family function they had, I was included, and it felt so nice. Hopefully Match and I can make a trip down to Peru to visit TG soon.
