Yesterday, we had a Superbowl for our youth group. It was actually a really good game, despite the fact that I really don't enjoy much about football. It was a long, exhausting day, though and when we got home at 8:30 we pretty much crashed. We went to bed, but watched about 5 episodes of 30 Rock, putting us asleep around 11. So much for going to bed early.

Today, I get to go shopping! It's been awhile since I've been able to leisurely go shopping with a girl friend. In fact, I can't remember the last time I did this. Please don't pity me, but I really don't have many friends where we live, so any time that I can spend with a friend is greatly enjoyed. I've been spending a lot of time with my friend Heidi lately, her husband used to be the Associate Pastor at our church, but resigned a year ago to pursue his doctorate in counseling. Since he's in school and working as a private counselor, she's lonely, too. So, we've been getting together for coffee about once a week and this week we're going shopping and later this week we're going to make chocolate muffins (she's pregnant and craving them:-)

Kyle and I had a really nice time on our date the other night. We haven't had many opportunities to go out just the 2 of us since Monkey entered our world almost one year ago. We went and got appetizers at a restaurant in town, went and saw Juno and even had enough time to stop and grab a cup of tea at Starbucks for about 30 min. before picking Monkey up at our friend's house. We were able to have a really good talk at Starbucks, so that was awesome.

Like I said, randomness.

We love 30 Rock too! It's better than the Office now, I think. Except the stupid writer's strike. I want new episodes!

i remember heidi at your shower, that is exciting she is pregnant, doesnt she have two girls already?
was juno good? i was wanting to see that movie too.
i am glad you got to go on a date, i know how that goes (=
i am feeling a little lonely myself right now here in tumwater )= but i am sure i will get over that, transition takes a little time.

Sounds like you and Kyle had a really good date. I'm glad :) That is always such a blessing! I'm sure it is even more so now that your life is somewhat consumed by Monkey. I can't believe he is almost a YEAR!

We need to all hang out some time - we miss you guys!
