Mother's Day

Mother's day is usually around my birthday so the weekend tends to be pretty packed. On top of this we decided to have lunch with his mom on Saturday and brunch with my mom on Sunday (I cooked both), not to mention my mom planned a birthday dinner for me Saturday too. It was a crazy weekend. By Sunday afternoon we were exhausted. Menal note: next year do ONE Mother's day brunch for both! I don't know what I was thinking. I guess I just wanted both to be special. I think it will be special no matter what.

I had a great birthday. Some plans fell through last minute, but my mom came to the rescue. She took us out to a Japanese restaurant. Nathan and Kayla came too. We had a great time and I was so happy that David had the night off. We could really get used to this.

I used all the birthday money I got to help us buy a new computer. We got an iMac. We have been saving up for a while and we decided on a Mac because we didn't want to deal with Windows Vista. We've been looking at computers for a while now because my laptop died a year ago. We now can also play WoW together.

Evening With Friends

David and I had such a great time last night. He had the evening off, so we had a barbecue. Nathan, Kayla, Ken and Stephanie came over and we enjoyed hanging out and eating burgers off the grill. It was a beautiful evening following a gorgeous day. One of the wonderful spring days that I look forward to after a cold winter. It is a treat for us to see each other in the evening so we made a party out of it.

Portland Trip

David and I took a trip up to Portland this last weekend. It was great to get away for a couple of days. We got to see Kelly and Brandon for a bit. Brandon's graduation was this weekend. We didn't get to see them a whole lot because his grandparents were in town for his graduation, but we'll see them this week because they are coming down to visit us. David is taking Tuesday evening and Wednesday off this week.

David and I had a wonderful time shopping with our Old Navy gift cards we got from MyPoints. We had fun spending those plus some birthday money I got. We haven't bought clothes in a while and I've recently shrunk out of a lot of my clothes, so we really enjoyed it. We also had dinner at the Kennedy School McMinamins. We give it 10/10 for atmosphere. The food was great too. We wanted to see a movie there, but their internet schedule was not accurate so we missed the movie we wanted to see. It was so relaxing to have dinner out in the courtyard. The weather was perfect. We sat on cast-iron chairs at a lovely bistro table amidst many overgrown plants that cover what used to be a courtyard playground. There is a tile-covered fireplace in the center and lots of random art pieces throughout the premises. What a lovely place to spend an evening! We are definitely going back.

Sunday we had a great brunch at the John's Street Cafe. The guy who seated us was kind of rude, but the waitress was nice and the food was delicious. We ended up spending the afternoon looking (for the Apple store and looking) at iMacs. We had reserved tickets to see Spiderman 3 at the Imax theater in Tigard, so we left Portland to get there a little early. That was good because we had trouble finding the theater and Dave thought it started at 4:30, but it actually started at 4. The show was sold out and we got in line at just the right time. We got great seats and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The drive home seemed really short and we were both wound-up from the exciting weekend.

It was great to get away for a couple days. We had so much fun together!
