I've been absent from the world of blogging for a few weeks, so I thought today we'd play Catch Up. :)
August 31: Date Night = Dinner at Chili's and U of I women's volleyball game. We won!
September 4-7: I had my first yoga class (read more about that here). Ava and Eli had nasty colds. Turns out Eli had pneumonia, poor guy was miserable the rest of the week. Long, long day.
September 8-9: Josh and I spent the morning on a cleaning spree. And as I mentioned here, something very painful happened this weekend. Around 11am, my dad called and said that my brother's best friend was found unresponsive earlier that morning. An hour later, he called again to tell me that he was dead - two weeks past his 18th birthday. Josh and I immediately hopped in the car and drove 2 hours home to be with my brother. That night he asked us to take him to see one of his other friends play in a band, to keep his mind off of things. Needless to say, the weekend was filled with tears...and Chinese food.
September 14: My employers are amazing. I've only been with them for a month and they've already recommended me to another family. I met with my employers' friend about a once a month overnight babysitting job and it went wonderfully. I start this upcoming weekend. Then Josh and I had a mellow movie night at home to wind down after a long week.
September 15: Josh surprised me with tickets to the Illini football game (thanks to a friend of ours in the marching band) and we enjoyed the morning at Memorial Stadium watching Illinois crush Charleston Southern. Afterward, we had lunch at Chili's (that 2 for $20 deal is too good to pass up!). Then Josh got his monthly haircut and we headed to the mall on a whim. We spent two hours at bareMinerals while I got a makeover and a lesson on all things make-up (more on that next week!). After that we headed to American Eagle so Josh could get some much needed clothes for fall/winter.
September 16: We both got done up with our new purchases to watch some football at home. :) Josh grilled up some yummy cheddar brats and we enjoyed watching both of our Fantasy teams whoop some major boo-tay.
Whew! So...that's what's been going on with us lately. Thanks for sticking along for the ride. :) I hope you're all having a great week!
