Summer Happenin' Updates

Greetings again. Just so anyone who is reading this knows that we aren't slakers (or for the sake of our future posterity's faith in the past generation, whichever), I thought I would take a sec and fill in our successes on accomplishing a few of our bucket list intentions.

  • Kneaders has been frequented and their all-you-can-eat french toast sampled. Sadly, there was no image documentation of this, but rest assured, sweetness was consumed. The people-watching wasn't half bad either.

  • Corrine was successful in acquiring a slurpee on that fabulous day that is 7/11.

    Facebook snag!
  • We scouted out the park intended to play the destination of a stellar picnic/birthday party two-in-one and were quite pleased with what we found: Neilson's Grove. This park is epic! However, due to inclement weather, we were forced into plan B: games at the Corner House. We still had tons of fun, so the day was counted a success. And don't worry; this park will be used to its full potential...someday.

  • Lastly, we took an incredibly impromptu trip to Cold Stone thanks in part to the bishoprich. They showed up at the door with $20 - nice, right? They "found it on our property" and wanted to make sure no one was missing it. We assured him that it wasn't any of ours. So he told us to take it and go get ice cream as roommates. Yes, sir; anything you say, Bishop! :)

So after finals were over we decided to pull out a puzzle. Well really I pulled out the puzzle for a Sunday activity (with no intention of finishing it that day) but BreAnna got to work and she had plans to finish it as soon as possible so we spent the Sunday after finals putting together a puzzle. Luckily we had all the pieces (Scroll to the bottom of the link...) and we got the puzzle done before eight! I was impressed with BreAnna's puzzle skills, I'm not so impressive where puzzles are concerned. But we got it done.

The Mess of the Puzzle all over the table.                                      Mary and Samantha helped as well...

Finals on the Corner

Hello blogosphere! I have not posted here before, but I thought I would take my turn and chronicle the experiences of my fabulous fellow ladies here at 213 in regards to finals. We began with the hurdles list.

Eva finished first, wiping out both her tests in one Tuesday swoop. Samantha, Hannah, and Corrine tied for second (aka I can't remember exactly how it came down). I finally finished this evening followed closely by Mary. Now we can PARTAY! Key the junk food, Reese Witherspoon, Bones, Shawn Spencer, yarn, music, confetti, fireworks...ok, maybe not that crazy. But metaphorically, yes. Now, normally I can't stand cluttery mess, but post finals I love the chaos. It balances my hyper-rational normally controlled nature.

Well, that's about it. Thanks for stopping by!

Yarn Rainbows

Things we learned today:
1) Protect Wildlife Crush Cup Before Disposal!

2) Crush= Lying
For Example: "I have a crush" "LIAR!"
3) It takes three movies to untangle and wind (X2) a skein of Samantha's yarn...
If you plan to attempt this at home the three movies we used were: Bewitched, While You Were Sleeping, and Uptown Girls.

3.5) It (Samantha's Yarn) fights back with fuzzies
4) Yarn can double as:

5) Yarn can also give your arms a good workout... tai chi style
6) According to Mary our apartment should have a comedy show... We didn't believe her. 'Til now, 'tis late.
7) Even if you can't remember learning anything else you need a seventh point to have the number of perfection!
