Date Night

Micah and I had a date night tonight. Nothing really big--lowkey, but the best, as far as I'm concerned. We went out to eat at Laredo Grill, then Baskin Robins, and then we stopped by our friend's Courtney and Josh's place to see them. They used to live on the other side of Micah's duplex, but since they have both moved to new apartments we don't get to see them very much. It was lots of fun.

Not much is going on this week. I'm on Spring Break and I'm loving it. I slept in very late this morning. I stayed up most of the night because Micah was working nights and I spent the whole evening cutting out burp clothes and blankets for upcoming baby gifts. I am going to sew them when I go up to Big Cedar with my Momma and Sissy.

Tomorrow, Micah and I are going to finish cleaning out his old duplex so he can turn in the key and then we will probably watch a movie. I watched Australia last night. I know it didn't do well at the box office, but I really liked it. Music plays an important part in the story line and I loved that.

Tonight, we also watched the results show of Dancing with the Stars. I love that show. It's good quality television and that's hard to find these days. If you don't watch the show, you should check it out. Right now Micah and I are watching the season finale of Bad Girls Club. We just found this show today and we cannot stop watching it. There was a marathon of this current season because the final was on tonight. If DWTS is quality television, this is the exact opposite. It's crazy, but you can't help but watch it.

Look what I did!

Okay, so I did not inherit my Grandmom's green thumb at all, though in my heart, I would love to be a great gardener like she was. My Daddy is just as awesome in his ability to grow green things--like he doesn't have enough talents already. My Momma inherited the ability to plant flowers, etc. from my Grandmom and my Sissy is the person that I call whenever I have a question about some plant or tree. She soaked up all my Grandmom's knowledge on the subject of gardening.
Well, tonight I took the first step in landscaping. I've lived at my house for about 6 years now and I haven't once thought about or wanted landscaping. It didn't really bother me. However, I started thinking that it would look pretty and tried to think about what I would do. My Grandmom and Pop-Pop had a forsythia bush at their house and I always loved it. It is just so pretty and springy. I was at Lowe's on Wednesday and they had their forsythia bushes on sale. I bought two of them and planted them in my front yard. My friend, Jamie, helped me design a landscaping plan, but I'm going to have to save some money to complete everything. So, for right now, I have planted my bushes and I pray that they will flourish and do well!

Daffodils at Wye Mountain

Bonnie Blue's favorite spot--between Micah and me on the couch.

Some daffodils at Wye Mountain

Today Micah and I went to Wye Mountain to the Daffodil Festival. This was my first time to go and I loved it. I adore daffodils. They are my favorite flower. You drive up to Wye Mountain an just when you think you are lost, there you are with a field of flowers. It is great and so beautiful!
We walked around and I took a lot of pictures. Then, Micah and I went to this pottery place called "Doodles for You". I painted a large platter with my signature phrase "whatever!". I had a lot of fun. Micah sat with me for a while, then he ran some errands, and then he came back to get me.
We fixed spaghetti and then had pudding with ice cream for dessert. It was a great day and it will be a quiet night with some of the people I love.

blog vacation

Without meaning to, I have taken a mini-blogging vacation, a.k.a. I haven't posted in over two weeks. I've been really busy and haven't had that much to discuss. I spent the last weekend with Micah in El Dorado. He is moving to a new apartment, which is always fun to do. He is really excited and I liked it a lot. We went to his brother's house on Saturday and ate lunch with his brother, Reuben, and his dad, James. Just me and the Fullerton men. Reuben and I dominate the conversations. =) We then got out the musical instruments and played some songs. I sang, Reuben played the acoustic guitar, James played the bass guitar, and Micah rocked the drums. This was a talent that I knew he possessed, but I hadn't been allowed to see him play the drums until that day. He did a great job! I loved it. I ended up getting sleepy from our lunch, so I dozed on the couch while the boys continued to play.

The weekend before that Micah came up to Conway and I had testing for my 2nd degree Red belt. I passed my test and I'll test in August for my BROWN BELT AND BLACK GI!!!!! I am so excited about that test. Also, Grandmaster Han will be here for that testing, so he will get to tie my belt on me and I will get to have that honor. It will be so exciting I can't even talk about it. Micah and I went out on a date that Saturday night and saw Gran Turino. I really liked it. It was a deep movie and I was emotional throughout it, but I really thought the direction was great and all of the actors did a good job. We ate dinner at the New China restaurant--the 'Ryan's' of Chinese restaurants.

This weekend I am cleaning out junk and taking it to the flea market AND taking one of my favorite 2nd grader's out for her birthday. Piper is the daughter of my karate instructors and she is just an amazing person. For her birthday we are going out to lunch and then I am making her a reversible skirt. We will see how it all turns out. =)
