Wednesday night Todd and I went with Ben and his fiance, Katie (not to be confused with our Katie) to a Shane and Shane concert. For those of you who aren’t familiar with contemporary Christian bands you probably have no idea who they are. They’re a pretty awesome accoustic (mostly) band and a lot of fun to see. David Nasser was there as well. This guy is a great speaker and what a story he has to tell! He was born in Iran, saw his father dragged from his house and had a gun held to his own head when he was 9. Somehow his family managed to escape to America after that. He went to church with a high school buddy when this friend told him the five hottest girls at school went to the same church. He eventually became a Christian and is a very funny, gifted speaker with quite a powerful message. There’s a ton more I could say about him, but I won’t. Just suffice it to say that our “Valentine’s date” was great!
Friday night we watched the fourth disk of season one of the Gilmore Girls. I had to keep asking myself, “Gilmore Girls or Prison Break“? You know, my two favorite television shows are LOST and Desparate Housewives. Those are the two shows I don’t like to miss. Every other show on TV I can do without. I’m pretty sure I could draw comparisons there, too, and maybe narrow down my favorites to just one night a week. Nah…
Saturday morning was the quarterly ladies’ brunch at church. What a bunch of fun that is! I’m a little sad I have to wait three more months for the next one. After that Todd and I went walking at the park. I thoroughly enjoyed it except for the fact it was around 30 degrees and a bit windy. It was my first taste of being ready for Spring.
Everybody is off tomorrow and I have no idea what we’re going to do. All the stuff I’d like to do is outdoor stuff and it’s too cold for that. Movies are expensive and the Camden Aquarium (like I’d been thinking about) is going to be mega-crowded. The kids are harder to please now that they’re getting older. Gone are the days of driving to the really cool looking gas station with the Espresso Bar inside and giving them a thrill. Heck, it’s even lost some of its appeal to me.
OH! Katie and I bought about 50 pounds of candy on Friday for our DVDathon and I found a green bag of nothing but green M&Ms. If you don’t know the significance of green M&Ms – and it’s not because St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner – you can read about it here. There’s a hoochie-mama green M&M on the front and it says, “The New Color of Love”. But that’s not the funniest part. In smaller letters under said hoochie-mama it says, “Sweetie… it’s all true.”
When we got home I told Todd I had a surprise for him. After pulling the Milk Duds and Twizzlers and Sour Gummy Lifesavers and Goobers out of the bag (and I can’t figure out why I’m not losing weight) I pulled out the M&Ms and threw him the bag. His first words were, “I don’t need these!” Silly boy. I bought them for me.
