Happy Birthday Andrew!

Today is Andrew’s 30th birthday! To celebrate I made him a watermelon cake.

Happy Birthday Andrew!

And by “made him a watermelon cake”, I mean I stuck a candle in a watermelon.

It’s a step up from last year though because this year we had a candle.

52 Weeks – Week 25

On Friday, Andrew and I went to see the Book of Mormon at the Kennedy Center.

Week 25

He looks skeptical, but the show was great.

Week 25

Andrew also must have lost his mind because he suggested we go to the mall on Saturday afternoon to look for rugs. This combines three things he hates: the mall, going to shopping centers on Saturdays, and shopping. We were successful in buying a rug (which I didn’t take a picture of) and then got ice cream. Because ice cream makes nearly everything better. Unless you are lactose intolerant, then it makes things worse.

Week 25

It was a very theater-filled weekend, because on Sunday we went to see Newsies.

Week 25

Our seats were in the 7th row which was awesome. Makes me want to sit up close for every show now. It was a great, big, spectacular Broadway production with huge musical numbers and lots of dudes dancing. I loved it.

Week 25

I don’t remember taking this picture. We look perturbed.

Week 25

I was bored so I made Andrew a nylon-lined dopp kit out of leather.

Week 25

We got a crazy rainstorm and the entire sky was this eerie shade of pink after the storm.

Week 25

Raindrops.

Week 25

Liz and I hung out and we got our nails painted. We’re very patriotic.

Week 25

Then we made popsicles. Raspberry lemonade!
Week 25

For dinner we made Asian turkey burgers.

Week 25

I went and got my haircut for the first time in like three months. I need one.

Week 25

Also, I dyed my hair. This was a crazy process and I had no idea what was happening most of the time.

Week 25

Now I have red streaks in my hair. They’re pretty subtle, but once you find them, they’re good and red. They didn’t even have to bleach my hair to do it.

52 Weeks – Week 24

I get really hot when I play derby. Sometimes you have to take extreme measures to cool down.

Week 24

Jen and Evan came over for dinner and Jen brought me a belated birthday gift. She is really top notch when it comes to wrapping gifts. I can never be bothered to make them look this nice.

Week 24

Look at what was inside! When we were in Nashville we had some amazing popsicles. I’m SO EXCITED!

Week 24

I came home late from derby one night and Andrew had this all set up for me. I like that guy.

Week 24

I made orange chicken for dinner one night. It was not very orange. Tasty though.

Week 24

We tried to be trendy for dinner one night and grilled leeks. They were not very good.

Week 24

We also pan fried shishito peppers because that’s the fad these days.

Week 24

For the main course Andrew made ribs in the oven. I bought ribs because they were on sale. Win-win.

Week 24
