I'm Dreaming...

of a day off
Just like the ones I used to know

I mean, it's good to accomplish things, but I have to say it makes me just the slightest bit crabby to think of all the things I've done since Friday.

Mom and I had the most incredible dinner at Copelands - it was awesome. She had the crab stuffed shrimp and I had the shrimp and fish creole. They brought her a birthday sundae and I had a piece of Louisiana style cheesecake. Wow. Then we watched the Twins beat Detroit! It was a fun evening.

Ryan met me downtown after the game. We headed to the Refuge and had a few beers with Hyser and the other Jill. We finished the evening at Rosen's. So much for making it an early night to rest up for Saturday!

Saturday morning, I woke up early and headed out to the Cedar Lake Trail. Got a good run in and went back home to make the pickle wraps. 2 1/2 hours later I finally finished them and started getting ready. I picked up Ryan and headed over to Tom & Vickie's. It turns out that Rich knows Shawn, the host of the pig roast. He was even there the night before helping him bury it! We stayed for a couple of hours and headed over to Shawn's. There were Toga's, a fridge tap, and lots of pig! It was awesome. We were so sad to have to leave - that party was going to be off the hook. We went to Ryan's to change, I met his family and we left for Wilmar. We got there at about 10:30. Tim & Josh were excited to see us and we had a great time. They're just such a great group of people. I feel really lucky to have met them. Also, I might add that we need to find more weddings/dress-up events to go to - I don't think I've ever seen anyone look that good. I must be in heaven.

We listened to the Vikes beat the Lions on the way home. He played softball with us - in the cold rain! Then we headed to volleyball. We were pretty beat afterwards but I don't think either one of us wanted him to go home. So I bought a TV and we watched the rest of the football game before calling it a night.

Bowling Monday... we won 1 game. I was up until 3am doing laundry (bad idea on a school night!). I was falling asleep in my classes yesterday but I still managed to internalize enough to finish my C++ homework in class and we got out of Psych early so that was a bonus. Tonight, Ryan's meeting me at Old Chicago for a work happy hour and then we might go see Underworld. Bentley's is always a possibility.

Have a great night!


What flavor cheesecake did you have? Have you tried Bananas Foster? That stuff is sin. Nothing beats the Copeland's/Cheesecake Factory in New Orleans.

They only had 1 flavor... it was Louisiana style though - had pecans in the crust. I'll have to try that Bananas Foster someday - sounds wonderful!

Hm, might have to have dessert today!
