here’s the usual recap of my most noteworthy sheenanigans as of late…
- for those of you who don’t know (i think that’s all of you) casey’s parents are in africa right now! Nairobi to be exactly. they went with a small group from their church to do a bit of mission work in the slums. before they left we met them for dinner in cullman (halfway between our cities). after dinner, we hit up the DQ for some blizzards! in my usual fashion, i didn’t get one, but helped myself to several bites of casey’s.
- abby & jon took me (and casey) out to dinner for my birthday. we went to taco mama, which is definitely one of my new favorites. i got a salad with lean steak strips, tomatoes, grilled onion, cilantro, grilled jalapenos, and guacamole. i am a total salad snob and this one got an A+!! i think everyone else really enjoyed their food as well. thanks for a fun dinner, abby & jon!!
- avondale brewing co. – the american diabetes foundation hosted a fundraiser at the avondale and asked the super fly band, kids your age, to provide some tunes. since casey was preoccupied with being a rock star, i took ashley as my date. the event was a lot of fun! the venue was really cool, the food was great, the drinks were flowing, and the entertainment was top notch! i bid on two silent auction items and ended up winning them both! i was sort of shocked, as i hadn’t planned on actually winning either of them, but really happy that i did! i ended up walking away with a mani/pedi, two 1 hour massages, and a 1 hour private yoga session. score!
- cahaba brewing co. – so one of our friends, andy, (along with a couple of his friends) opened a brewing company. right now the tap room is only open on friday evenings, so two fridays ago we went to check it out with some friends. it was a real good time! cantina’s food truck was parked in the parking lot and we all took advantage of that. cantina’s garlic fries are out of control. for real. once again, good times with good (and new) friends!!
i also had a birthday last week, but that will get it’s own post because that’s just the way it is. 🙂
