Cake Tasting

I really didn’t feel like going to work on Friday. I just wanted the weekend to come so I could spend time with Megan. We were supposed to be meeting up with my parents to celebrate mother’s day, but Susan ended up being sick, so Megan and I went alone to Lucille’s BBQ. After that we went to the campout with the branch, but didn’t find all that much going on there. We sat by the fire and talked for a while as well as ate some cobbler and then decided to high tail it out of there. We didn’t want to get caught being there past ten when they lock the gates. We came back tot he house and made some chocolate covered strawberries to eat while we watched One Tree Hill.

We had cake consultations on Saturday. The first was at Jodee’s Bakery which I’ve worked with before at Grand Tradition. Her cakes were really good, and we both really liked this almond poppy-seed with cream cheese and raspberry frosting. The cake turned out a bit more expensive than we were hoping for, but I think we’re going to get it figured out how to get it from there as we don’t have any other options to pursue at this point. We had a second appointment at Tasteful Cakes in Corona. They had some interesting products, but we weren’t as impressed with them and it seemed that they were not really going to be any cheaper.

We went to Ashley and looked at bedroom sets and then picked up dinner at Costco for the crew that was going to assemble our wedding invitations with us. We worked on those for a few hours and then after everyone left Megan and I went and sat in the spa for a while. It was pretty nice just hanging out with her and talking.

Today I slept in till about 9:30 and then didn’t get out of bed until about 11 to get ready for church. We went to church with her parents and I didn’t see nearly as many people looking for her wedding ring to figure things out with us. It was so lividly hot in there though I had to take my jacket off and wasn’t sure I was going to make it even then. Fortunately Megan’s dad was able to go out and fix the problem so we started getting some air in Sunday School. We had dinner with her family and hung out there for most of the day. We just came back to my house to fetch her car and she should be calling me any minute now so I can go to sleep! Good night to you all.

Quiet Day of Chores

Quiet Day of Chores

Maybe before people decide to advertise on electronic screens they should inquire as to what is powering them. I mean, why pay to advertise how horrible windows is? We already know it crashes constantly – is it really necessary to advertise that at the gas station? Insist that your advertising displays run on a Mac. Maybe people will see what you are paying for.

I spent some time this morning catching up on blog reading and still trying to figure out twitter. I think I’m starting to get the idea behind it, although I still can’t understand what it does for me more than the status in facebook does. I guess it is just another one of those independent services we all have to deal with. I wish everyone could just have their own domain with whatever works best for them running on it sending out RSS feeds. That would I think essentially solve the need for all these different sites we have now. I realize it will never happen, but I think that is one of the reasons why I am so slow to adopt some of these new technologies/sites that others jump on right away.

I spent a good chunk of the day cleaning the house. I also spent time working on this console situation for the show this weekend among other things. I watched some TV, made some phone calls for home teaching and made orange chicken for dinner. It was essentially a pretty quiet day at home. I thought Lauren was going to come up, but she never did. Alison and I were going to try and meet for lunch, but that didn’t happen. I thought about going to dinner with Bouse, but he wanted to go to Outback and I’ve officially given up on that place. It’s hard to believe it, but I’ve actually stuck by it when I said I wasn’t going back. I can’t stand that they can’t figure out how to cook the meat right.

In fact, I would have spent the entire day at home if Maegan and Larilyn didn’t drag me out of the house to have dessert with them at Johnny Carino’s. I decided to try something new – the cannoli i think it was. It was actually pretty good, although Maegan will attest that the cake something or other she got was amazing and much better than anything I could possibly have chosen to get. This is why we had to have two desserts – so she could have the cake and I could try something new. They invited me to the movies as well. I just came home to finish off my boring day at home, home alone. I ended up watching an episode of CSI, which surprisingly, I hadn’t seen before!

And now, I can get to sleep at a reasonable time instead of still being locked in a movie theater for another 40 minutes and not getting home until tomorrow. I’m very anxious to find out what is going on tomorrow with President Mattson being released. From the calls I made today regarding home teaching, I can see that we have a lot of work cut out for us with people leaving. There were also a few who didn’t know they had assignments, which I think means that I must have never gotten the new assignments to them. I guess that is where calling comes in!
