Jason and I had several fun date nights this month. Can I just say we have some of the best friends in the world? I have to admit, most weekends Jason and I tend to hang out at home watching Netflix or Red Box (after dinner out, of course)...we enjoy just being lazy. But we definitely also love spending the weekend evenings with friends.
Rich and Kamilla (recently married) had a "house-warming party" of sorts. They invited us, Nate & Sarah, Trevor & Krista, and Parker & Ali over to see their new basement pad and to eat dinner. They made some delicious meat and cheese quesadillas and homemade chocolate chip cookies. They are living in the basement of a very well-to-do couple with a huge yard. The men definitely took advantage of yard space, playing football and soccer. The kids loved playing on the play ground. And the girls enjoyed hours of great conversation...and great advice for this mother-to-be.
We had another "house-warming party" date this month, but this time hosted by Jason and I. We invited Kerstin & Jed and Alisha & Nate over for dinner and to see our new apartment. We served Brandalee's Chicken and Rice, Cheesy Herb Biscuits, and Apple Poppyseed Salad. I was thrilled that everything turned out well and delicious. For dessert, we had Root Beer Floats (thanks to Kerstin and Jed). After dinner, we played Ticket To Ride...and Jason and I dominated the board...however, not really fair since we were technically teaching the others how to play. Bad friends? We can't help it that we like to win!
Lastly, thanks to my new part-time schedule, I had a day off last week. Jason and I took that opportunity to visit the new City Creek Center. The weather was great and the mall was beautiful. We were quite impressed. We are stoked that there is another Cheesecake Factory and H&M in Utah. I was very excited to see a small maternity section in H&M...I was desperately in need!
With Jason's flexible work schedule, I have loved having lots of time with him lately. I know I won't be taking this time for granted come baby time!
