1) Jess's bachelorette party was about 10 days ago, and it was fantastic. Excellent choice with the 80s cover band- that was the way to go :) I have lots of pictures, I got to see lots of fantastic ladies that I don't get to see very often, we got to buy Jess some cute things so she'll be prepared for her life as a married lady... not that I'd know what that would be, but I gather cute underwear/nightgowns are involved.
A couple of pictures:
this would be early on in the night, before many drinks were had by anyone. Jess and her deltas :) super cute. and we know how to pose. no alcohol is even showing!! we were all trained well.
and this one is the best one of the night of the bride-to-be. i love it :)
2) this past weekend on the 3rd we went up to Chris's parents' lake house again (because who wouldn't?) lots of people came, one minor injury was suffered, Amanda got in the lake and DIDN'T EVEN HOLD ON TO THE DOCK, it was epic. and I forgot my camera for all of it. As Scotty that I babysit would say, "Major Fail."
But I do have this other pretty picture of the lake from the last time we went before that:
3) The fantastic D that I do research with was here for a couple of days last week, which was awesome. We went and saw where the alleged Boston Strangler victims were murdered because we are weird like that, and we watched some World Cup and wandered around Boston in the gorgeous weather on Friday. We also watched a lot of True Blood :)
other than that, my life has basically consisted of babysitting, reading, Netflix (Battlestar Galactica, I don't know if I like it... though the entire series of The X-Files is streaming and I'm rewatching the whole thing, no question), organizing our apartment finally even though we moved in last August, you know, same old. Chris's friends Matt and Josh are coming up this weekend, next weekend my mom AND Val are coming and we are going to visit AJ and Taygan, and after that it's finally to Florida and back for Jess and Rob's wedding!! It's going to get busy quick. I have some goals for the summer...maybe I should write those in here and get on it before summer is over and I start my VERY LAST YEAR AS A GRADUATE STUDENT. finally.
