A Little Late, But...

Here's my weekend recap!

You know how Michael said we were going out of town on Friday? It was a surprise, alright! Poor Michael. He felt sick all day Friday because he knew he shouldn't have built it up like that and he was worried about how I would react. I knew it was a bad sign when we didn't even get on the freeway.

You see, his parents are out of town right now...and he thought it would be fun to spend the night at their house! Oh well. I got over the initial disappointment after a few minutes and now he knows better than to say something like, "I'm taking you and Jexi out of town for an early birthday surprise!" To be fair, he did warn me that it wasn't anything big like Vegas. *facepalm*.

Moving right along...after we unloaded our stuff, he told me he had made plans to have our friends Patrick and Ashley over for dinner (that he was making). They came over and we had delicious steak, corn on the cob (mmm!), orange soda, and some pasta salad that Ashley made. They had to leave after dinner but then Michael and I stayed up watching Star Trek. He bought it specifically for this night. I had to laugh at that. But I actually did like the movie. I had seen it once before in the movies but forgot that I liked it!

On Saturday, we I made do with laying out on the concrete in Michaels parents backyard. Jexi joined me for a little lounging until she couldn't take the heat anymore and Michael took her back inside.

We went to see Inception and even though it was complex, it wasn't so hard to follow if you payed attention. There were a couple of things that Michael cleared up for me afterward and it made for some good conversation! I definitely recommend seeing this movie. Quality films are so rare lately!

Check out this ring that Michael bought me for my birthday! He gave it to me a little early (my birthday is Wednesday) because I think he was trying to make up for us staying at his parents house instead of a resort in San Diego or Santa Barbara... but I love it! Thank you, honey!

The rest of our weekend was basically just doing whatever we could to stay out of the dreadful heat! I can't imagine how awful it must be in other places, because I was melting with just our Orange County weather!

I know this is random, but... I seriously am in love with eating fresh, warm, french bread and assortments of cheese (but mainly cheddar), and grapes. Ever since Sheri's wedding, I have been obsessed with eating it! It's just so refreshing and delicious! I also made guacomole the other night. Yum.

Oh and P.S- We just got Netflix for the first time and I started watching the DVD's of Grey's Anatomy. I had only seen a couple episodes before and now I'm loving it!

Hey, Shelley~
I love the story, and the ring, and even Inception, too. (Still makes me think.) Glad to connect to a fellow "sister" in California. Good luck with your new home. It's beautiful.
