On a lighter note

I played with our new Wii all weekend. I love me some Super Mario Galaxy. ;)

Last weekend was also the weekend of out-0f-town friends. We went to dinner with Sarah, Shyleen (and Colby), and Malia on Friday night. Then again for lunch (minus Malia, added Jenny & Gavin) for our usual salad, soup and breadsticks at the Olive Garden. Lemme just tell you... the one in Huntington Beach is just north of Warner, on the WEST side of Beach, just after all the car dealerships, hidden by a ton of over-grown trees and facing the opposite way on the street. Shy kept saying that "you can't miss it." We figured it was because she went at night before and the sign was much easier to see when it was all lit up. Oh well... I made it. Our waiter really sucked, but we had fun anyway. Jenny's little Gavin is only 8 months old but he's wearing 12 & 18 month old clothes. His parents are both tall so it's not very surprising (remember that for later).

Saturday night was a blast as well. Tammy & Spencer were in town so we (M&M and T&A... I think I'll start calling us The Chocolate Orgy LOL) along with Cindy and Layne & Stacia. It was a party!! I really miss T&S (they moved to Texas almost 2 years ago now), they were always a lot of fun. Trena and I found out that Tammy blogs now though (see the links list). It'll be easier to keep up with what they're up to now! :D

I also spent some time at Disneyland on Monday with Cindy and Sarah (and her daughter Melodie). Sarah and I got there first so we went directly to Small World (after riding in on the monorail). It's always a lot of fun when you go with tiny kids. (Melodie is so tiny, by the way, that she's 18 months old and just now starting to wear 12 month clothes. See the difference from Gavin? LOL) She danced on Sarah's lap the ENTIRE time. We made friends with these 2 really sweet girls in line. They were on vacation from New Zealand. It turned out that one of the girls grew up on a dairy farm in the town that they used to film the Hobbiton portions of the LOTR movies. They were really funny when we got to the Pacific Islands area, they were VERY annoyed that they got 2 kiwi's and Australia & Hawaii took over the rest of the area in that ride. LOL

So we got off the ride and met up with Cindy. We went on the Jungle Cruise and our guide was really funny. It was the same old corny jokes as always, but the delivery is all that matters. And the piranhas freaked me out again (they always do). Sarah and Cindy instantly decided that I don't abuse my pass enough and started making plans to get me there much more often (since Matthew never seems to want to go). I also replaced my recently lost Italian charm bracelet while I was there (such a steal). I got a new starter bracelet that comes with it's own charm (my last one broke so that was an improvement) and 3 new charms for $20. Yay! I want to fill it up now. I'll have to start another Kaboodle list for charms I want. ;)

We (Matthew and I) ended up at Sarah's that night to watch Star Trek: Nemesis. The new movie comes out for Christmas. Sarah let me borow the other movies since I honestly think I only saw the first 2 of the TNG ones and can't remember much from the 2nd one. We had fun. Matthew isn't a Trek nerd like we were (me, Sarah, Cindy & June) so all he could do was keep blurting out "Westly is gay!" Whatever! It was nice to watch an adventure of the Enterprise again. Data is the best!!
