Date Day: Fancy Movie theater

Last week for our date it was my turn to plan. I had been wanting to try out this movie theater called Icon Showplace for a while so that is where we went. And we saw Spider-Man. It was really cool. They have a balcony area that 21+ where you can buy drinks and good food, like bacon popcorn!!! We didn't try the popcorn though sadly instead we got chips and dip which was still really good. And we each got a drink.

Afterwards we went to dinner at Toby Keith's Bar I ♥ This Bar and Grill. Not so good. I liked the atmosphere and would probably go back there for drinks but not for dinner. Our food came out cold and I asked for my steak to be well done, it was medium rare! How on earth could you confuse the 2?! And then it didn't even taste that good. So yea not really worth the money. 

Then when we finished dinner we went to see Brian, Miranda, Greg, and Karissa and went bowling again. Much more fun this time thankfully :) Hope all of you have a lovely weekend! Be back next week.

PS sorry for not posting a lot and lacking on reading your posts but life has just been a bit busy lately. But I haven;t forgotten you!

Day Trip Up North

We have some family friends that live up north about 2 hours away. We hardly ever get to see them. Last week we had some free time (all on the same day) so my family went up to visit them for the day. It was a lot of fun. We only got to see Penny and 2 of her kids Jon (12) and Miriam (9). We spent the day there having a lot of fun and then after dinner we went to her MIL house to go swimming in her pool. And now I will let the picture tell the rest of the story :)

New Friends and Bowling

Alright remember how I mentioned hanging out with Jamal's friends Brian Miranda Greg and Karissa? He know Brian from work and Greg is Brian's BIL who also coincidentally went to junior high with Jamal. Well lately we have been hanging out with them more often. Miranda and Karissa are sisters so they have a close relationship. they are also pretty loud. I love hanging out with them but I always feel a little out of place because they are so close I feel like I am just sitting there in the background awkwardly. I guess with time that will go away but anyways.... time for my story from bowling last week.

We all went to Brunswick to go bowling. Miranda decided that she wanted to have some drinks (She doesn't drink very often). No big deal. She was the only one that was drinking and after about 2 drinks she was definitely starting to feel it. At this point I found out that Greg and Karissa don't really drink. After drink 3 Miranda was gone. This is where things got weird. Grag and Karissa were really annoyed and even kidna mad at Miranda for getting drunk, her husband was also getting mad at her and she was just having fun. I didn't know what to do. She was having fun and everyone else was mad at her. I felt so awkward because I felt like I was being pulled in 2 different directions.

I am just trying to get to know these two couples and then I was in that icky situation. Not very fun :( At least the next day when we saw them again Miranda said she didn't really remember last night.

PS I feel like this is written oddly. I can't really articulate how it was but I hope you guys get the idea :)

The Week of the 4th

First off, I would like to say that I am very sad that I didn't really take any pictures last week :( but I  still had a lot of fun and have a pretty decent memory so here we go.

Wednesday the 4th: As you may remember I was house sitting at this beautiful home. So my family came over and we just hung out all day and swam in the pool. That night we had planned on going to see fireworks...that didn't happen. My mom thought Maple Grove had them So we drove and drove and drove trying to find them. And then we realized that they didn't, it wasn't until next week that they did them along with their city days. So we just drove home without seeing them. Sad night. Fireworks are my fave.

Thursday: I invited my friend Ashley to come over from work. It was the first time we had hung out together and it was pretty fun. We just sat around and talked. And later in the day Jamal's friend Brian came over with his wife and 2 kids. We did a little swimming with them, played a lot of pool, and got to know each other better.

Friday: We didn't have plans during the day so me and Jamal watched a lot of Masterchef and caught up on the season (not in one day though). I got my hair cut finally! I have been saying I would for months and I just now did it. I really needed it. And then that night we hung out with Brian and his wife and her sister Karissa and her hubby. We ate delicious food at Smashburger, went bowling (awkward story coming soon), and then came back to the house for some to play pool.

Saturday: Again we had no plans for the day and just hung out at the house. That night Brian's family came over along with Karissa's and Karissa's other sister. We had a full house. We BBQ'd, took a late night dip in the hot tub, and watched UFC.

That was a pretty long recap! I didn't want to make you read anymore so I left out extra stories and will post about those later. Have a great day! I am going to visit some friends up north now.

Hey Hot Shot on the Bike

Yea you, the guy who was trying to be all cool and show off for me! It worked. Thanks :) It was quite entertaining and you are very talented yet I am fearful for your life. Be careful!

While Jamal and I were driving home the other day we passed a guy on a motorcycle. The guy then sped past and had his legs up on his seat, slowed down then drove past us again only this time he swung his leg over to one side like he was getting off and balanced standing there, and then for his ultimate trick he drove with his head turned the other away so he was looking at the street. And he wished me good bye by doing a little wheeling and speeding away like a mad man.

I felt pretty special that he was doing all those tricks for me :)

10am and a Glass of Wine...or 5

Yesterday Jamal and I went to a wine making class, specifically fruit wine. It was at 10 in the morning and naturally we were running out the door so that we wouldn't be late. Between all of the running around getting ready I neglected to eat some breakfast. Bad idea....or maybe my best idea yet :) The class teacher provided a lot of samples and they were pretty delicious. Strawberry, Strawberry Rhubarb, Cherry, and Plum. Let's just say that by the end of class I was feeling pretty good. Afterwards we figured that we should probably get some food so we went to the Uptown Diner. It was our first time there. It was a fun little place that we will visit again. I got a  caramel apple waffle. It was good but very sweet.
