Couples Weekend

Phoebe: So, how was the honeymoon?
Monica: Oh, so much fun. But the best part is we met this incredible couple on the flight back.
Phoebe: That was the best part? [To Chandler] Good honeymooning, Tiger. –Friends

Last weekend I finally started to feel like myself. My stupid rash was almost gone, and Match and I had the whole weekend off together which we spent with some of the different couple friends we have. Saturday we drove to the East Bay with Couple Wife and Baby to cheer Couple img_5720Hubby on as he competed in Autocross Nationals. For those of you who don’t know, Autocross is car racing around a track set up by cones in a giant parking lot. It’s actually much more fun to watch than Nascar where they just drive in circles. The track has lots of corners and sometimes the cars spin out. Match was in little boy heaven watching all the nice cars and getting to stand with the guys between runs.Meanwhile, I was in Auntie heaven playing with Couple Baby who is cute as a button. Oh, and Couple Hubby won! Yay!  Also, Couple Wife was back to her old self, and I think Match was right when he said she was just having an “off day”. Continue reading Couples Weekend

SPT- Bringing the Indoors Outdoors For Summer

Samantha: [At a BBQ] Who wants a weiner?
Transexual: Girl, I’m trying to get rid of one! –Sex and the City

Match and I have done a good job of this living vicariously through his parents. We’ve managed to have weekend meals up there almost every weekend these past few weeks, and we always sit outside. img_5022

(when I posted this pic on Facebook, Drama Chick pointed out that the weenies were very large, haha. I hadn’t even realized!)

Just wait till they get their new lounge chairs. They will have to pry me out and drag me to the car kicking and screaming. 😉 I can’t wait till we get our own house and we can start picking out our very own patio furniture. Till then, I’m happy to steal theirs.

So Much For Boredom

Meredith: Derek’s camping. Taking time. Getting space.
Cristina: Prestons do not go into the woods. A guy named Preston is gonna get his ass kicked by a squirrel.
Izzie: It’s basically a slumber party, they do it outside, we do it inside. It’s really the only difference.                      –Grey’s Anatomy

It’s funny-it seems like just a few weeks ago I was moping around the house whining to Match that we never seem to have plans with friends. We were both bored, and wishing we had more to do. Now it seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day, and we just collapse at the end of the day exhausted. Our social and work calendars are overflowing, and all I can think is it must be summer. I love it though, every minute of the chaos. We are enjoying a lot more time with friends, and our side business is booming with summer move outs. We’re also super busy with house hunting after work, submitting offers, and crossing our fingers that we get the place we want. Continue reading So Much For Boredom
