Back to our regularly scheduled program.
Okay so I had a fabulous weekend. Bj came down on Friday we chilled and had dinner and it was so nice and relaxed. Then on Saturday we took a drive into the country and went to some little antique stores. We took the drive so I could take pictures, but it was pouring the whole time (shocker) and the only things that really caught my eye were on private property. I should get more guts, but I decided to stay off. We had dinner with my dad and Brent at a new place in town, Tre. It was pretty good. We were just filling ourselves all up for the Whose Line is it Anyway Night of Improve at the historic Elsinore Theater. I love the Elsinore, it's really cool old building that's been restored and it's cool to watch/preform in there because the audience is right there. I was actually the lead in the Scrapwork Girl of OZ (how I got the lead in a musical I'll never know, singing and dancing together is hard!). Anyway the guys were awesome. It was super funny. They were like, "Ya, we picked a good season to come to Salem, Monsoon season." They had a bunch of jokes that had to do with our area and pronounced everything correctly, it was hilarious. Bj and I then went over to my dad's and watch Troop Beverly Hills!!! I love this movie and Bj surprised me by getting if off of my Amazon Wish List for me. Now if only I could find the theme song online... When we came home it was like 11:30 but we decided to watch Napoleon Dynamite anyway, so we stayed up way to late. I did have the best wake up girl though:
"Auntie Amber are you in there? Are you awake?"
She is sooo soooo cute! My brother Aarron, his wife Corallia, and Brianna had come up to visit because he is getting transferred from Travis Air Force Base (California) to a really important job at the pentagon (doing I'm not exactly sure what). Aarron is like the nicest guy in the history of the world and he got specially selected for the job. I'm really excited for them. It will be awesome for Brianna to get to experience all the culture of DC when she is so young (just turned five).
The other thing I did this weekend was knit. I saw this on Molly Chicken's blog (a blog I came across somehow). And thought she had the right idea, especially after my sock fiasco. So big knits it was. These whipped up so fast. I did this one and one for Tex's birthday that I kinda missed, oops! I really want to get some handwoven chunky stuff to make another. Now I'm over at my dad's watching my little sis. We're just chillin' Well chillin' and singing like fools to the High School Musical Soundtrack, oh ya. There was a brief break in the sun yesterday when I shot this:
Of course now it's freaks-ville outside and the house sounds like it's going to blow over in the 30-40 mph wind gusts, whoo hooo! Check out the photo of the day today. I have been still taking them, just uploading them in bunches instead of one at a time.
