Back Home

Joe and I had a nice trip to Seattle this weekend! We got to see his family, Matt and Jenn and a lot of other friends that still live on the west side. I got my new phone the "my touch" from Joe's cousin finally, so I am no longer stuck in the stone age amidst all these people with cool phones. I'm hoping the calendar part will work out well - it sinks up with gmail calendar and the hope is I will stop forgetting things and make it easier to keep track of my crazy work schedule! We went to a couple of our favorite restaurants - Dicks, Taste of India, Tubs Gourmet Subs, and the French Bakery in Eastlake! Yummy! I also had a really fun time hanging out and scrapbooking with Jenn at her condo.
Back on home front, our new "couch" showed up today. Its really more of a futon though. Joe got it all assembled while I was sleeping, so I think we will test it out tonight and watch a movie before I go to work! I got "late-started" tonight, so I don't have to go to work until 2300! Super excited about that!! I'll have to put up some pictures in the next week or so. The house is finally starting to come together and not feel like a big empty box ;)
I'm also really excited for Thanksgiving - only 2 days away! Tomorrow, Rachel and I are going to make some pies and apparently our cousins are coming to help out as well. We're planning on a pecan, apple and 2 pumpkins - scaling down from the 13 or 15 pies we made last year! That was a little much! Then in the evening, we're going out to my Grandma's to marinade the turkey and get the rolls started! ... can't wait!!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!!

Little things

Since I'm stuck working night shift, I'm trying to appreciate the small perks of being up all night.
1. Waffles at 1am - just like the ones you get in Whistler hotels for breakfast!
2. Little extra cash
3. Pretty cool group of nurses
4. I'm sure there's a few more out there...

Yesterday at our house we had a few huge fluffy flakes coming down! Its pretty exciting... but nothing stuck. We still have Thanksgiving this fall but other than that the leaves our down (and raked and in the yard bin) so it would be ok if it snowed all little bit! I like all the white sparkly stuff on the ground plus it makes it not so dark in the evenings and good for snowball fights and such.
I've got today off and then work for 4 more nights starting Saturday! I'm looking forward to my first Friday night off in forever. In the way of other news, we might go to Seattle soon for a visit, we got some new barstools for our kitchen, dining room area and still have lots of unfinished projects around the house :) Have a nice weekend everyone!!
