All is Well…

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Thanks for all of your phone calls, gchats, emails, and comments checking in on li’l ol’ us.  Everything’s good—Tyler and I spent a nice night at home eating Trader Joe’s frozen goods (we. are. addicted.), drinking wine, and watching “Up in the Air.”  So. Good!  (I’m a little peeved by the ending though… But all those Nebraska jokes made up for it.  I heart movies that make fun of Nebraska, by the way, because they make me laugh and get Tyler all exasperated (Sorry Nebraska readers—nothing but love for the Corn Husker state.).

ANYWAY, I digress.  Everything’s good here.  Better than good.  Because….

Christie’s coming today!  Man, oh, man.

Christie and I met on a trip to China my junior year of college and I’m pretty sure she’s responsible for 90% of the fun I had senior year.  We haven’t truly hung out since college, save for quick trips for coffee in Atlanta or a few brief meetings when we were both in Colorado this summer (I in Colorado Springs, she in Fort Collins.).

It’s supposed to be rainy all weekend here in DC, but that won’t stop us.  I am

Here’s to a trip down memory lane…

[This is mostly for Christie and Julia’s benefit… I know—it’s way too many pictures and way too many inside jokes to explain….]
