Well this weekend was a party.
-Those cupcakes I was craving? Yeah, a friend and I made an entire batch - Funfetti style. That savory batch was left at my house, on my counter. Needless to say I ate an embarrassing amount of cupcakes this weekend, and my neighbors ate none. I'll probably only eat rice this week.
-We went to Lagoon (an amusement park) on Saturday. I still maintain that that place is a magnet for people who can be described as freaky, emo, fat, or gay - or in Saturday's case, polygamous. Oh yes, we definitely rode the log flume with a polygamist mother and daughter. You may call me judgmental, but there was really no denying it. Everything about them screamed "I have 85 brothers and sisters and I sew my own jeans." A little weird.
-Rented the first season of 30 Rock from the library. I sort of dig it. The black guy is definitely my favorite so far. Is it worth continuing?
-We went to our new ward on Sunday. We're basically the youngest couple there - and flying under the radar in that ward is definitely not going to be an option. We had an older lady just about in tears because she was so excited we were in the ward. So clearly it is a super nice and welcoming ward - so I'm excited about that. And the bishop's wife has a snarky side - which I think is absolutely grand. So I'm excited - it'll be a lot more permanent than the ward we were at in our apartment.
-Toby has started to lift his leg and pee rather than squat. Look at our little baby, becoming a man. Soon enough he'll be humping just about anything in his path. Ah, the joys of owning a puppy.
-Pretty sure our house is going to give my husband all sorts of ulcers. Something breaks, we fix it - 800 more things break. It's ridiculous. Our toilet pretty much exploded yesterday and instead of doing anything about it, I hauled massive toosh to the backyard to let Shawn know, you know, so he could fix it. (Because I'm about positive I would've just made it worse. And I didn't want to get pee on my hands, even if it was my own. Wife points.) So
-Oh, and have I mentioned that hanging the blinds (brackets and all) back up after the windows got replaced is a royal pain in the ass? Well, it is. Which is why we've only put the ones in the basement back up. I wouldn't be at all surprised if one of our neighbors has seen a boob here, or a butt cheek there, because of the lack of blinds. Hi, we're Shawn & Chelsea. Your classy neighbors.
-I won a Samsung Sound Bar from a company picnic. Heck. Yes. I maybe should have wrapped it and saved it for Christmas. But, that would be near impossible. I can't keep presents for that long. Especially super expensive prizes that I know my husband will love me forever for. Which is why I do my Christmas shopping pretty much last minute. How's that for a legitimate procrastination excuse?
-We now have TV and internet at our house. Yesssss. The Comcast dude was a little... special. But whatever. TV is back just in time for all my showsssss!
-Oh, just in case you're wondering (because really, why wouldn't you?), that new birth control hasn't been giving me any crappy side effects which makes me just beam with satisfaction. Not yet, at least. I'm only like, a week in. But I'm totally digging the whole, I'm not actually going through menopause, thing. Squeeee.
Let's end on that happy (albeit slightly awkward) note.
Chelsea love you long time.
