Super Fun...And Not So Super Fun

It's been a busy few weeks - I'll start with the good. Danny decided we need to something a little Christmasy with Rani. We would've liked to go see Santa but since they charge you way more than it is worth or than what we can afford we decided to make a ginger bread house instead. The only problem is, ginger bread houses really start to add up too! We used cheap graham crackers, made the frosting and got some nasty candy from the dollar store - all of which make one ugly, ghetto ginger bread house! We improvised and used a taco chip for a Christmas tree(my idea!) and used some marshmallows and pretzels for Rudolph. Rani loved it and had so much fun. By the end of the night we were cracking up at ourselves and the things we could make. Danny was particularly proud of his "Christmas dino".

Then I had a pre-birthday party at the Cheese Cake Factory. It was awesome. I have such awesome friends that will drive all the way up to King of Prussia for me to go to my happy place for dinner!

Then the bad...Danny and I wake up Saturday morning feeling pretty good about life in general. We're looking forward to a fun filled day of grocery shopping at walmart, running some errands and then if we are feelin crazy we might head to the mall or Target, until we go to get in the car. Someone has totally bashed in our window and stolen our gps. As you can imagine it was a pretty sad moment for us. We only have one car so there goes our weekend! Nobody can fix it until Monday. The worst part is driving to the closest gas station to vacuum out all the mess of glass that this lovely person has left for us. Danny pulling out his mad engineering skills riged a blanket over and through the window. It actually wasn't too bad, just a little noisy. Some days we're just done with poor grad student, nasty apartment living, one car driving, east coast living life. Saturday was one of those days. I'm going to tell myself that this person (most likely a drunk college kid) really needed to get this gps to buy a wheelchair for his disabled little sister for Christmas. It will make me feel better. What are ya gonna do?!

Nothing Like Acting Like You're 16 again!

Wow, it's been a while since I posted. I'd like to say it's because our computer bit the dust (which it kind of did), but it's mostly because I've been pretty busy...and lazy! I'm working on a borrowed lap top and decided to steal the collage I made off my friends blog so I can post SOMETHING.

Here's me and the girls at the midnight showing of Twilight. It was so much fun. We stayed chatting until there wasn't one single person left in the theatre! I was thinking we were such big dorks for going to the midnight showing of movie about vampires...until we saw half of the ward there too. (Most of whom are much older than me) It was awesome being a little irresponsible, staying up that late and giggling at "Edward" with all the other 15 and 16 year olds! Sometimes you just need to act like a teenager again. I'm so glad I have big dorks for friends who want to do these silly things with me! (As for the movie. I'd give it a 6/7. It wasn't bad, but not fabulous either. Didn't like Bella, Edward grew on me once they layed off the pink lipstick, and Jacobs wig was ridiculous!!! Didn't do the books justice, but who am I kiddin? I would totally see it again!)
