let the countdown begin

1 more day till my 25th birthday! i love birthdays! i still get all excited about ripping open presents. i’m such a little kid. joe’s letting me open his presents tonight. he knows i can’t wait. 🙂

four months!

today is our four month anniversary. yep, i’m the kind of dork who gets excited about things like that. i love you more than you know baby! today is also the day that i become a baseball widow. joe’s fantasy baseball draft today kicks off baseball season which lasts, what, the rest of the year?! now, i am a baseball fan and i plan to attend as many games as possible, but i have a feeling i won’t be seeing my boyfriend much over the next nine months. maybe that’s because in his new year’s resolution column one of his resolutions was to at least remember my name. hmmm. no really, it’s ok. he can have his fantasy baseball, which i’ll probably never understand, no matter how many times he tries to explain it to me. he can have his televised games and trips to the stadium. as long as i go with him, that is. 🙂

party, party, party

last saturday night, we went to a surprise party for joe’s parents’ friend brian’s 50th birthday. brian’s kids and their significant others, as well as another couple, met us at joe’s parents’ cabin for snacks and then we all caravaned to doris and carl’s cabin. brian was totally surprised. he thought everyone was getting together for a neighborhood cookout.

we all…well, most of us…ok, us younguns put on party hats and got into the celebration. it was great fun. we cooked out (even grillers for moi, the vegetarian) and just hung out and talked and watched brian open his presents, most of which were gag gifts.

the picture joe’s mom took of us sitting on the couch is i think by far the cutest we have of us.
