Weekend highlights pictured include the biggest piece of lasagna in the world c/o Rose Angelis, receiving the first gift from our wedding registry, dinner at the Halloween’ified Hubbard Inn and turning our time at Bub City into a game night with a large side of singing country music at the top of our lungs (and of course, the fried pickles). Not pictured (what can’t be pictured, really) is how darn good it was to have some of our best friends in town for the weekend. It was a blast showing them some things we love about our city and nothing beats having face time with people you love. So whether it was catching up sitting in our living room while devouring pastries from Beatrix, belly laughing over tots and football at our favorite neighborhood bar or walking down the street talking exclusively in hash tags, it was one of my very favorite weekends. I wish they lived closer but I am so grateful for the in-person celebrating we got to do, even if the time went way too fast.
Remember this? The Bloggess’ Christmas Miracle of 2010? The blog post I was reading when Ryan came home to find me sobbing while holding the cat and blubbering on about the Christmas spirit and George Bailey and how the world might actually being a good place after all?
Well, The Bloggess has struck again, this time with a hilarious blog post about what it means to pick your battles.
2 things come up for me here.
1) 15 years into my marriage, I really, really hope I remember that the gift for 15 years is big metal chickens.
2) I am so glad I have friends who also think spending $100 on a big metal chicken would be totally worth it strictly based on how many belly laughs would result.
So, if you had a bad day, a great day or don’t even remember what today was, read this. It will make you laugh and laughing creates endorphins and who doesn’t need more of those?
