I cat sit for a couple that hs 2 cats...they have a black and white cat and the white cat is VERY skittish to the point that it doesn't like being in the same room as people. Anyway, when I was sick, I was sleeping on the couch there and then watched some "How It's Made" on the Discovery channel. The cat was up on a chair next to the TV and went bananas swatting at the globe in the corner. It was super cute!
Then he jumped down off the chair and was watching the show.
Oh, and my actual Real Estate license from the State finally came:
And here's my hair after Ashley at Salon Joseph had her way with it:
I didn't get a picture of just my hair and make-up before I had my dress on, but here's "the picture" of Jason and I:
AWWW!!! YAY!!! :) Jason was texting me all day saying how excited he was to see me and stuff - it was so much fun!! And he kept telling me over and over how beautiful I looked and stuff - I felt so special! :)
Just for some cues as to who we were with, we went with Jason's best friend Clint and his wife Jenn:
Jason, Clint and Dan basically grew up all together and are super close. It's fun hanging out with them all cause it's such a differnent group, but it's fun. I was a little nervous cause I hadn't been out to eat with Dan and Emily since Dan's operation (he's now permanently blind) but it went really well!
Here's the whole group:
So...for those that haven't been to the Melting Pot...SO much fun. It's quite an event - it has taken about 3 hours for the whole meal each time I've been. They sat us at a weird table - 3 people on each side, so one of the couples had to split up and then they only had 2 burners on the table. Weird. A round table would have been better but it was still good! :)
Emily, Dan, and Clint
And Jenn and I didn't realize this was going on during our picture (obviously):
So we had them take another one:
When we got to the table there was a GORGEOUS bouquet of flowers on the table and I noticed a card inside it. I pulled it out and saw everyone but Jason and my last name on it but wondered who sent them. I flipped it over and saw the note said:
AWW! He sent flowers to the restaurant for me!! :) I felt like a Princess! :) They're so pretty I brought them to work with me today:
Jason and I don't eat seafood, and I didn't get pics of the enormous lobster tails everyone else had, but you get the idea.
We got the Original (milk chocolate with peanut butter mixed in) and the S'mores (milk chocolate with flambe'ed marshmellow) and it was SO good!! I ate a lot before I remembered to take pictures:The pot o' S'mores:
All in all, it was SUCH a fun time. If you go, go with someone who works at Microsoft cause their Perks card gets 20% off the total bill. Nice.
Jason and I went to his house and were taking more pictures of ourselves (he was humoring me) and it was fun. We were just hanging out and talking about everything and nothing all together (anything from work, to us, to farting. I'm not kidding). :) It was really good. I was kinda having a moment of really wanting some reassurance/affection from him when he leaned over and kissed my forehead and just held me for a minute. It was so sweet and exactly what I needed right then.
He pulled away and looked and me and told me he had something he needed to tell me but wanted me to promise that I wouldn't cry and that it wouldn't change the mood we were in. I told him I would try not to cry, and that I couldn't promise anything about the mood. He laughed and said okay, and then:
"I love you"
