today was a very nice saturday! all caught up on GH (why don't they just bring natalie on the show already? grr!), finished Huntress (omh, the most intense story yet! i think this was part of lisa's brilliance, writing them like this. they build from james & poppy's super-sweet story w/ almost no tension (it's there, it's just super quick) to this one where i really wasn't sure if things were going to work out!! sometimes reading intense stories is exhausting... but worth it! lol), watched some White Collar, and got to hang out w/ mom & leyton & play Payday. : ) i won, even!
mom decided she didn't want to get out of the house, so i went to aunt sandy's for aunt vickie's bday dinner on my own. there was a big crowd, and it was lots of fun! aunts nancy, judy, sharon, kim,and sandy & vickie, of course; uncles arnie & rick, cousins amy, brandi, and matthew & his kids, nathan & bentley. hooray! great night of food (spaghetti, which i ate a few noodles & LOTS of sauce cuz it was yummy; delicious spinach salad; twinkie cake for dessert) & fellowship! : ) oh, and aunt judy brought her pics of hawaii. their sea turtles are HUGE there! : )
i stopped at kwik shop on my way home (actually, i was there 3 times today! LOL) & chatted about vampire books w/ the dude who was working. that was pretty cool. *laugh*
and i think that's about it! tomorrow i'll try to upload the pictures from tonight. i'm gonna watch one more ep of white collar, read a bit of the next book, and then hit the hay. so thankful to have THREE more days of the weekend before it's time to head back to work!! : )
