Hey, guess who's alive?! Me! Finally! I kind of feel like I've been sick since the new year, with the worst of it hitting me two weeks ago, when I feel like I fell completely off the face of the earth. Alas, I finally feel human again. And while I'm hesitant to pick my running schedule back up just yet (that seems to have been the trigger [at least in my association] with round two of my sickness), I'm back to most things full force. Except writing. So here I am now, hoping to make up for lost time.
This past weekend was the first weekend in three weeks that we (well, I) actually got out and did stuff (and were pretty productive around the house, too), and it felt SO NICE. Saturday we did a little shopping (Brad's first visit to Sawyer Garden Center) and tried out a restaurant that's been on our radar for three years now (Soe Cafe = yum city!), and Sunday I started working on the beach/family/friend photo wall collage I've been planning for at least a year. But best of all was seeing some good friends when we kicked off the weekend with game night at Hillary and Troy's house.
I picked up Apples to Apples (even for a not-that-into-games person like me, this game is super duper fun) from Target, selected a mix and match six pack of Michigan beers, and off we went. Liz took home the first win, with Hillary taking round two. Most fun with this game is trying to play to each person's sensibilities and guess how they will respond - often unpredictable (unless I'm the judge and then it's a pretty safe bet that I'm going to pick Bates Motel), always fun. And perhaps just as hilarious is each person's winning cards, which, according to Hillary, is a magic 8 ball view into your true self...
While Ceile spent much of the evening with just the "Miserable" card, her true personality took over eventually and she snagged "Glorious" and "Popular," too.
Nothing says Brad like "Graceful" and "Meek."
Hillary was on a roll with "Saucy" and "Spicy" and "Magical," but things took a turn with "Twisted," "Manly," and "Dead." Hmm.
Heck yeah I'm fuzzy!
