fantastic week

I'm hoping to have a fantastic weekend.
The week so far has been wonderful. I got out into the sun today with one of my girlfriends and helped her plant some of her garden. It was a blast. But I am sunburned. Oops.

My birthday is in a day. Husband is dying to give me my present. Promises of the Happy Dance have been made. I wonder what it could be... I'm excited to find out!

And not a lot of people know this, but our first anniversary is Saturday. We plan on going camping with our best friends. It's supposed to be gorgeous this weekend. I cannot wait to stuff my face, smoke a cigar, have a beer or two. Enjoy nature. Be able to listen to God and enjoy His creations. I pray that we get to go. We've been having car trouble lately... I'm sure we'll find a way. If we dont, I'll probably cry.

Speaking of cars, I've decided to go get my permit for Husband's anniversary present. I'm nervous about it, but I think I'll do okay. I hope. I hope to get that done on Thursday. Wish me luck!

I'm pretty darned content right now. It's looking to be a fantastic week. :)

I'm sure you've seen this commercial with Burger King and Spongebob already. When I saw it for the first time, I couldnt believe it. Just when I thought that Burger King couldnt get more disgusting than it already is, they put out this "gem" with girls doing some nasty booty dance all over the place and some guy saying "Hey Spongebob I wanna get with ya, cause you're makin me richer." It's not a cute commercial. It may have been funny on SNL, but not aimed at my 10 year old daughter. I dont want her thinking that any part of that commercial is cool. There are a whole lot of things they could have done with that commercial to make it more tasteful.

Way to go, Burger King. You're totally sending out the right messages to your younger audience.

I had a rant related to work... and now it's gone.
Thank you, Jesus for taking the burden of my frustration. <3

date night

Last night, Matt and I were lucky enough to go out on a date. We left Jade over at Matt's parents house. I felt bad about that later, because she already had her hands full with all of the other grandchildren (had I known sooner, I probably wouldnt have asked her to watch Jade) but apparently, Jade was a great help. I am blessed to have such an amazing daughter.

Anyhow, we went to the Red Onion Cafe. I had never been there before. The food was okay. I ordered a tuna steak, which ended up being over-cooked (compared to eating seared/raw tuna at the sushi places, cooked tuna just doesnt cut it anymore) and drowning in some sort of putanesca/italian pico de gallo sort of thing that totally overpowered the entire dish. Matt's pasta was good, though.

Then we went to go see the Watchmen. We both had just finished reading the graphic novel, which was very good (I think the Sandman series is way better, but I guess that's almost a whole different genre than super-heros) so we wanted to go see how the movie compared, especially since it was almost out of theaters. Well, the movie was great. Until the end. They completely botched the ending! That is so terribly disappointing. They did that will Stardust, also. Meh. No wonder when I was talking about the ending with someone at work and they looked at me funny, because the ending I was describing was totally different than what they saw at the movies. Ugh.

All in all, I had a wonderful time. We even got a chance to talk about buying a house, and other goals. Apparently, Matt wont make any more moves until I learn how to drive. I already feel like an idiot for not having my license by now. I just hope he understands that I need encouragement, and not ridicule. I need some sort of plan, or goal, or something... and I need help. I am not motivated enough to do it by myself. And that sounds even more lame than not having a license. *sigh*

And the sooner I get a license, the sooner I get to look at houses, that should be motivation enough.. right? Yes. I guess I'd better go study...
