i don't even know where to begin... so many things are in the works right now, and it's all happening so soon!
next weekend i'm
heading out to nyc where i will be spending a week and a half with the boyf and
getting to have some actual face-time with amber and mary
catherine, as well as the friends i haven't seen in almost a year.
then, there is the incredibly incredible awesomeness that i don't believe i've talked much about (if at all?!) here. and that awesomeness is called road trip!!!
amber's logo for visual aid. you can also click on it to get more info:
(there's also another lil' bit o' info here.)
the response that we've gotten so far has been phenomenal. we've had so many incredible offers of couches to crash on, back yards to pitch a tent in, thrifting hot-spots to hit up, as well as home-grown and home-cooked meals, secret swimming holes, favorite tea houses, etc. etc... it's been really tough to narrow down our route.
we're limited in time (we're trying to keep it to three weeks. ish.)
so this is the tentative plan:
(sorry amber. i'm kinda like totally ripping of the layout of your entire post. this wasn't my original intention...)
this might be the most exciting thing i've done in years.
(also, i know i've been emailing a couple of you about this already - hi kim and m.! - but if anyone else has any "you must do this while you're on the road!!" tips, please do share!)
and as if that isn't enough excitement for one night, i have something almost as equally thrilling to share with you now:
another installment of Relax Game!!
i mean, it's pretty obvious that mini-grill-with-pine-cone would win hands-down last week, but i lost the most recent round:
(i know none of the ladies are
disappointed with this week's winner.
i'm starting to think a good portion of you are just sticking around in the hopes that i'll post more pictures of asher. that's ok. i don't mind. whatevs.)
i would like to point out, however, that asher, (what am i saying?!?! The Other Citizen. sorry.) is not as heart-breakingly manly as these pictures might indicate. in fact, this particular round of Relax Game was cut short when, rather than wait patiently for me to find him in position – as the rules state – he screamed from his bedroom, “for the love of god, i’m relaxing! can you please come find me?! my skull is caving in under the the weight of the sofa!”
so the Other Citizen wins this week. that's cool.
but if this is how he wants to play, then fine. i know how to relax, and it is ON.
