Week in Review

~On Sunday we went to Sarah's church with her and her boyfriend. It was kind of fun experiencing a new church and a new type of worship! Afterwards we went out to lunch at Quaker Steak, where Sarah and I had never eaten before. We found that they have fun straws...

And delicious desserts!! (Luke and I shared this one...caramel apple nachos with vanilla ice cream)

~On Monday I got a sub job with 6th grade. When I was in college, I never would have thought that I'd like teaching 6th graders sooooo much more than kindergartners, but I do! It was a fun day :-)

~On Tuesday it was hot and I was thristy...and Starbucks was calling my name. Java chip frappuccinos may be my new favorite thing in the world. Although I do not plan on ordering them often!

~Wednesday I took a trip shopping with Luke and JC. You see, I cracked the screen of my iPhone in the middle of the summer, but I've been using it fine since then. But recently, there seem to be a lot of internal problems going on with the phone. So we thought maybe the Apple people would be nice and help me out since we weren't sure what was causing the problems. However, the man at the Apple store said the problems were probably due to the fact that I had dropped it, and couldn't really help me unless I wanted to spend $150. No, thank you. I'll use my broken phone until I can upgrade. Anyway, that was a long story. But the night wasn't a total bust, because we did enjoy a late dinner at Five Guys.

We sat down to eat, Luke handed me my burger, and I exclaimed, "This is a little burger?!" Then Luke sat his down beside mine. Ha! It's all relative, folks :-)

P.S. I'm a little embarrassed that all my pictures have been of food so far.

~Luke washed the dishes on Thursday night without being asked or even hinted at. This was the highlight of my week.

~On Friday I had to take the dreaded GRE (a 4-hour test to hopefully help me get into grad school). And while my nervous, upset stomach had me almost unable to leave the house, and subsequently I was almost late getting to the testing center, and then I was so frazzled I forgot to pee before the test and had to wait until my 10 minute break two hours into the test to use the restroom, and then I got stuck in a traffic jam on the way home on the freeway, and then I got lost.........I think I did pretty well on the test, so it was all worth it :-) and I somehow did make it home in one piece!

~Saturday morning was a bridal shower for one of my best friends from high school, so it was fun seeing her!

~Saturday night I went with Luke and my mom to see my old high school's performance of Sweeney Todd. Luke's cousin Leah played Johanna, and she did so great! It was a pretty dark musical for a high school to do, but I thought they did really well, and it was pretty fun for Halloween weekend!

~ Remember this post about my purple tights? Well I've decided they're finally making their debut tomorrow at church (I'm writing this Saturday night). I'm a little self conscious, but I thought I'd try them out once just so I could say I did it. The color is horrible in this picture, but here they are anyway!

Have a blessed Sunday!


  1. Yum, I love Quaker Steak and 5 Guys. You can see what's on my mind.

    I love your purple tights!! I know they will look so cute!!!

  2. Those food look delicious!
    I've never had tights before. But I might get some leggings, because I have several long sweaters that kind of look like sweater dresses, or something like that.

  3. Don't be ashamed that your pics were of food! Mine always are too! :) Love that color of's really in this season! And 5 Guys is SO good!!! I was a ditz and forgot to order a little burger so I ended up with a HUGE burger. Goodness gracious lol. Happy Sunday!

  4. I have never been to a 5 Guys, but I've heard it's delicious! Happy Sunday!

  5. Go yo for trying the purple tights! I think they look fabulous - I like the dress you decided to pair them with. :-)
