The word of the last couple weeks has seemed to be "party"! Seriously, I know so many people who have birthdays around this time of year, not to mention the fabulous office party we had a week and a half ago that involved pie! (unfortunately, it also involved "pi", so we had to take a test because i work with a bunch of nerds!) Anyway, for "PI" day (3/14, har har), we had a pie contest. Each group had to provide two pies to be judged for the themes of "PI" and "St. Patrick's Day". So the two pies that the Dynamic Documators (my team) came up with were both worked on by me, but the one we were especially proud of was our twist on PI--instead, we thought "P.I." as in "Private Investigator" as in "Magnum, P.I." (yay, tom selleck!) That was pretty flipping sweet (even though that placed second--what a shame), although the st. patty's day one ended up being very cute (and placed first in its category, thank you to me for decorating it at the last minute).
So fun times with pies--I've never baked a pie without my mother's supervision before, so I was a tad nervous about the crust, but hey, it tasted pretty good.
Last week a few of us from work also got to go and work on a house for Habitat for Humanity, which was kind of cool. I got to work power tools, so I felt pretty awesome. The only problem was that I smelled like sawdust for a couple of days (i showered, really!) and only a couple people I know find that particularly attractive. Oh well.
Friday night was Becky's birthday, so there were a TON of us together for that celebration. Man, she knows a lot of people. Nineteen people at Thai Ruby for dinner because she couldn't stop herself from inviting people! Crazy and loud. But pretty fun. We all watched "Enchanted" after having cake and the like at the apartment, so fun times. And, what a shock, I spent the night over there after drinking a bunch of Martinelli's with Becky and Esther (well, Esther didn't drink any, but Becky and I sure did). I love my girls. And Becky had a really good birthday, so fabulous times to be had all around.
Then Sunday was Mom's birthday and Easter! I spent the day at Becky and Esther's, although Esther was the only one there because everyone else went places for Easter dinner. But we still had a good dinner--ham and funeral potatoes. Pretty standard, but always scrumptious. People started trickling back around 8 or so, and I spent the rest of the evening back and forth between 123 and 211, which is very normal for me now. Jeremie says that he definitely sees me at least twice a week now--Wednesdays when I come and teach Kelly piano, and Sundays when I'm at 123 and their place. Glad to know I'm so predictable.
Favorite quote of the week to share: "Now if only I could find a place to rest my head for the night. Oh, I don't know. Maybe a nearby meadow or a hollow tree. Or a houseful of dwarves! I hear they're very hospitable!"-Giselle, Enchanted
