Ryan got home on Friday and was so nice to cook me dinner. He had been travelling so I know he was very tired but he knew I'd had a long work week as it was quarter close so he fixed shrimp pad Thai and bought some Thai beer. Both items were delicious.
On Saturday night we had Scott and Sue over for barbeque and games. Ryan and I are not very good at fixing barbeque for only four people so we ended up having a ginormous feast. Then we played the game Apples to Apples. Basically, there is a deck of green cards and each card has a word on it, such as unscrupulous or classic. You turn one green card over per round and every player except one, who is the judge, must place one of their seven red cards down that they think best describes the green card. The judge picks which one they think is the best and that person wins that round and then the next round a new person is the judge. So for example, if the green card showed the word classic then players might throw down cards that said things like meatloaf or convertible and the judge would say they thought meatloaf was the most classic descriptor in the bunch. It doesn't always work that way, however. Once when I was the judge I got this hodge podge of cards thrown at me:
We stayed up wayyy too late so we didn't make it to church on Sunday but Ryan took me that morning to Nordstrom to exchange my Tom's shoes. I, like Julie, am a little behind on jumping on the Tom's bandwagon. I've purchased Ryan and both of my nieces some Tom's shoes and I've purchased my mother-in-law a Tom's sweatshirt but I had never bought a pair for myself. I've always kind of wanted some and I love the idea that for each pair that I buy a pair is donated to a child in need so I finally got online and ordered some but they ended up being too big so I had to go in and try on a new pair and exchange. For anyone looking into Tom's my experience was that I needed to go a half size down from my normal shoe size. And I love them! My second pair of "Dorothy" shoes. Hey, I am from Kansas so if the shoe fits...
Oh, and my friend Julie has nominated me for a Liebster Blogger Award so I will come back to that in my post as I need to put some thought into it.
