Spring Break!!!!!!!1

Which means beaches, beers and burritos.

Or…not at all. I didn’t even realize this week was spring break until Thursday or Friday of last week, but I lived it up this weekend!

Well, sort of. I lived it up for me.

Friday I got off work a little early, came home and took Daisy on a nice walk until we were chased by a scary dog. He barks and snarls at us when he is on his leash, so I was I was honestly terrified when I heard his owner yelling and saw him coming up the road behind us. I had completely resigned myself to being bit just before he turned around to go home. Probably the last time I walk down that road. Luckily there are a few different ways we can go, so it’s not a huge loss.

After Keith got home, we worked out and had some leftovers for dinner. Then, instead of retreating upstairs for homework, I went downstairs with him to catch up on tv. Parenthood and the Americans. I love Parenthood so much, I wish it was a 3 hour episode every week. Even it has gotten a little weird this season. The Americans is good too but kind of slow so far this season.

Saturday we woke up and got lunch then went to the meat market. We try to get there every few weeks but they are closed on Sunday which has been my usual shopping day, so I never remember. When you go there, they package up the meat, then carry it over to the register and ring it/bag it, so it wasn’t until I got home that I realized I bought at least twice as much chicken as I meant to. I asked for 4 chicken breasts, but didn’t realize theirs aren’t split like the ones in the grocery store, so I was a little shocked when I opened the bag. Also got some ground lamb for some fake Halal Guys food, yum.

Then Keith went home and I went to Target to add some more stuff to our wedding registry, kind of boring, but a necessary evil. And then more grocery shopping which is definitely evil. We were supposed to go to dinner with his parents, but his mom wasn’t feeling well so we went for some sushi instead. And then home to watch Before Midnight. We watched Before Sunrise and Before Sunset the previous two weekends and I really liked them all. Before Midnight was a little bit of a downer, I think Before Sunset was probably my favorite. I really like Julie Delpy.

Sunday we were going to go out for lunch then bowling. We were discussing where to go when I saw Pgh Taco Truck would be in Fox Chapel so we headed out that way. I thought they were at a table tennis match and was impressed that there were so many people there but Keith corrected me that it was platform tennis, whatever that is. Still an impressive number of people considering how cold it was.

#latergram my @pghtacotruck haul from yesterday. wish I had more today.

After some delicious tacos, we went bowling and not to brag, but I kicked Keith’s butt both times! I also probably bowled my best two games ever, so it was really exciting. Keith bowled a third game and beat both of my previous scores, so I was glad it took him that long to warm up!

gettin' our bowl on. so far I am crushing keith.

After that I headed down to drop off wedding photos and head to my grandparent’s house. Got to see the family for the first time in a while so that was nice.

cutest nephew ever.

my other nephew, kevin bacon, is pretty cute too.

It might not be a very exciting Spring Break, but I really freaking needed a weeked of little to no responsibility. I’ll get another one of those in May, already can’t wait.

funny farm

Driving my nephew Brad home yesterday, he got a little whiny in the car, so I started singing. I sang “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” before blanking out on children’s songs. Then it hit me, “Old MacDonald,” I quickly ran through all the farm animals I could think of so our farm was also home to snakes (He kept “sss”-ing, so I had to throw that in), bears, lions, dinosaurs and rabbits (they go hop hop hop, I guess). I snuck a peek back and he was grinning like a fool. (Probably like, this lady’s an idiot!)



Note: Not taken while driving, but a similar look.

But it quieted him down enough until I thought to put Toddler Pandora on for the rest of the ride.

So it should be of no surprise that last night I dreamt I had to call Animal Rescue League because there was a lion in my bathtub and a bear stuck in my toilet. That’s what they do, right? Rescue people from animals?

So just a few little tidbits that I found amusing but cannot stretch into an entire blog post.

Last weekened I babysat my little cousins Adam and Giana. At one point, we were sitting there playing playdough and my phone started rining. My home screen has a picture of Daisy, so as my phone buzzes Daisy pops up on the screen.

Adam: “Is that your dog?”

Me: “Yep.”

Adam: “Your dog is CALLING you?”

Hahaha his parents now have iPhones so he knew how the picture of the person calling pops up and his little mind was blow. Mine too. I wish Daisy could call me.


I got my wedding dress this weekend! It was my first appointment, I tried on 7 dresses, had it down to 2, tried them both on again, made the decision, out the door in under 90 minutes. I am good. When I got there, I told them my name and that I had an appointment. They asked, like everyone does:

“With a C or a K?”

“With a K. You know everyone asks that and I have never met a Catrina with a C.”

The two girls look at each other”…there is actually one here right now.”
You don’t know how badly I wanted to run up to her and shake her/her mother and say “YOU! IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT.”
I restrained myself. Barely.

I also babysat my nephew Bradley this weekend with my mom. It was pretty awesome to get to spend a whole almost 24 hours with him. And her! He is turning into such a little boy and had both my mom and I cracking up the whole day.


My one week of “summer break” is over. I managed to swing a B- in my History class and an A in my Anthropology class! I thought for sure this semester would have been the one to land me a C, but I overcame! I am now taking two summer classes and I think I get 3 weeks off in August. How glorious. I bought myself a fancy cupcake yesterday to treat myself after I completed homework and bit into some eggshells. I was really bummed. Still am a little bummed. I understand that eggshells happen, but when I pay 3$ for your cupcake, you better dig out all those shells!
