What I've been up to. A bullet list.

  • Lots of stuff is going on with me lately but none of it feels significant enough to deserve its own post.
  • We had a Mother's Day dinner at our house - I made chicken parmesan.
My mom & mother in law
  • On Saturday I went to a bridal shower for a good friend. I'm so happy for her, and looking forward to her wedding in June. It was nice to catch up with the bride and other friends.

  • After the bridal shower I met J at a housewarming party for one of his coworkers. It was fun.
  • My sister is graduating from Sacramento State this Friday, and after the ceremony there's a party at my parents' house. We went over on Friday after work and spent a few hours hanging tons of Christmas lights in their backyard. It looks so cool! Hopefully it's warm/dry enough, because they have the perfect outdoor party yard.
  • I'm making magic cookie bars for the party. I've made them once before and they're fabulous.

  • It's rare that I want to go to the movies, but I really want to see Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part II. Rose and I went to see Water for Elephants recently too. I don't think I've been to the theater 3 times in the past 2 years. Seriously.
  • Things are happening on the house front. Good things. I'm just afraid to jinx it so I'm not announcing anything yet ;)

  • I'm over Facebook. They blocked it at work a few months ago and not having access to it has made me not care.
  • My brother is getting married in 12 days! That will be fun and emotional. I get a 4.5 day weekend for it, so that's exciting too.
  • I have a bunch of stuff from our wedding that I really need to sell on Craigslist or elsewhere. These signs, our table overlays, candles... it's just taking up space!
  • I also have lots of clothes and other stuff that I'll likely get rid of when we move, and I'm pondering having a yard sale. I probably don't have enough stuff for one, but it would be nice to make a little bit of money from it. The alternative (and what I usually do) is to donate it.

I can't imagine the day when my brother gets married. I will be in tears the whole time. I was supposed to give a speech at my sisters, but I burst out in tears and my dad had to take over. ha.
