This weekend...

This weekend I...

- Went to the boy's 10 year high school reunion, which included lots of awkward conversating.  Then, instead of an after party or heading to a bar, we went to a French restaurant for dessert.  I guess that's how you know you're getting old.  Or that you're really into chocolate.
- Booked a venue for our wedding!! Bring it, Summer 2015!
- Tried Costa Rican food for the first time, including an oatmeal cinnamon milkshake - yum!
- Finally started passing out some of the souvenirs we brought back from our trip.  Now our bedroom smells a little less like a Moroccan spice shop.
- Drove all the way up to northern Wisconsin and back in a day for work, which was actually kind of cool since it was like driving into fall.
- Finished up my first real freelancing job for a paying client.  Watch out world!
- Tried quail for the first time, which I hate to say, tasted a  lot like chicken.
- Had a celebration dinner with my parents, Jeff's parents, and my grandma, which included quite a bit of toasting.
- Consumed a fried cheese platter while in Wisconsin, which included not only mozzarella sticks and cheese curds, but also fried queso dip with jalopenos.  More, please!
- Played a game of elimination Apples to Apples, which we decided even with the added element of kicking people out of the game is still not quite as fun as Cards Against Humanity.
- Successfully made it six days without shopping.  I decided I'm on a shopping ban for the month of October (except for Halloween costume supplies, of course) so I'm hoping I can make it another 25.

I hope you had a great weekend!
