This weekend was exactly what we needed before more midterms. Friday morning was super snowy but luckily the sun came out around 3:00pm. I had already worked all of my hours, so I took a test and then splashed home in the melting snow (it was perfect rain boot weather!). I took Ruggles to this place called PC Laptops and they told me some guy in Salt Lake would be willing to fix him! It'll cost about $250, but that's way cheaper than buying a new laptop. I'm so glad I finally found someone to help me! Friday night we went to the volleyball game and beat Pepperdine 3-1, then we went to bed because we were really tired.
Saturday we slept in for the first time in forever. It was really nice to just lie in bed without having to worry about class. Daniel went to the lab and I cleaned the house/did laundry, then went to J Dawgs and picked up some lunch for us. I surprised Daniel at the lab and hung out with him a little bit, then went grocery shopping. I spent less than $100, yay! I picked Daniel up and we unloaded the groceries, then we went to Thai Ruby for dinner. Oh. My. Goodness. If I had to pick one Provo restaurant to take with me whenever we leave, it'd probably be Thai Ruby. Or maybe Spicy Corea. But Thai Ruby is definitely up there. Their lemongrass soup is like a fireworks show in your mouth and the curry is amazing. It was the best meal we've had in a long time!
After dinner we went to the mall and browsed some stores. All of the spring clothes are out and it makes me happy! I'm super excited that turquoise is a popular spring color so I can wear my wedding shoes more often! After the mall we went home and made homemade chocolate chip ice cream and watched some stuff on Netflix (Netflix completes my life). The ice cream wasn't all the way solid, so we tossed it in the freezer and it's awesome now!
Today Daniel went to the hospital and I did more laundry. We stayed for the first 2 hours of church, then left for Sandy for dinner at Grandma Larson's. Everyone was there tonight and it was so great to just hang out with all of the family. On Friday the adults are going to Famous Dave's for Mark's birthday, I'm excited for some BBQ!
When we got back to our apartment, we found someone in our parking spot (it really is a coveted spot, we lucked out). We parked on the street and I wrote a note and stuck in on the car's windshield. Daniel says it won't do anything, but I felt better after doing it. The last time someone parked there and I wrote a (somewhat heated) note, our upstairs neighbors brought us cookies and apologized and I am now one of her Visiting Teachers. The note I left tonight was much nicer and hopefully won't be as humbling an experience.
The end of the semester is getting closer and closer and I'm so excited! I'm really looking forward to my spring/summer classes and the warmer weather. The end of the semester also means I'm just a few months away from going home! We're super close to buying our tickets and I can't wait for it to be official. I would start a countdown, but that would just make it worse...
