By the way, I have signed up for this. Wish me luck! I've been training my rear off! Or at least my belly fat off.
And we got this in the mail earlier this week. We have yet to play it. I know. It's a horrible shame. And it's so fun! I think it's on the agenda for tonight. But I also want to add this and this to our collection.
I'm playing catch up again, mostly because I think it's fun (not really). And because I slack sometimes. But, you know...
Lish had a birthday. And we celebrated hardcore. It was our first weekend in a long, long time that we didn't have anything to do, so that's what we did. The night before his birthday we went on our search for Chinese food again. It was our second attempt to finding something, and our second fail. In the end we just got some Cafe Rio and it was delish! (Of course.) On Lish's birthday we took things really easy. It was raining, so we couldn't go outside to do much. (Although I still ran 6 miles and it was one of the worst runs of my life. Never again will I run in the red dirt when it's raining. I don't know if you knew this, but it turns into slippery clay. Go figure.) And for dinner that night he just wanted to eat in. We watched a couple movies. Snuggled with the little one. And with each other. Like I said, hardcore. Nothing could top his birthday last year. That was the night we found out we were going to have this little guy:
Good times. Really good times.
In other news, Lish has completely completed his dissertation! Yay! I'm so proud of him and all the hard work and long hours he put into that thing. And I'm so glad he's done. He's glad too. Very glad.
This past weekend we went up to SLC for the Jazz v. Lakers game. The game didn't start until 8:30 Friday night and my mom was watching Yale, so Lish and I had a whole night by ourselves. It was so nice but I was amazed at how much Yale was on my mind and how much I missed him. We were only apart for 5 hours. I loved getting to spend that one on one time with Lish though. We were sitting up in the nose bleed section for the first half of the game, but both of us were keeping an eye out for empty seats in the lower bowl. We found almost an entire row of emptiness, so during half time we moseyed our way down there. We weren't the only ones with that idea either. No one ended up claiming the seats and the ushers didn't check our tickets when we went down there. Our little rebellious selves didn't get caught! And we got to watch the second half of the game 10 rows up on the Lakers side, which Lish appreciated. It was awesome!
The rest of our weekend was spent fulfilling our appetites, spiritually and physically. I didn't get to listen to Conferenceas much as I wanted, so I'm excited for the May Ensign to come out so I can read those talks and be uplifted again.
You know I have to post more pictures of our little man.
He went in for his 4 month checkup yesterday, BTW. Can you believe that? FOUR months! He weighs 15 lb 5 1/2 oz (60th percentile) and is 25 1/2 in long (75th percentile). His head size is in the 75th percentile too. So he's gotten longer and skinnier in the past 2 months. But he still has the chunkiest little thighs! I love them!
