It was a shoe in the hamper kind of week....

It was a ridiculously crazy, lousy feeling, too busy, too many late nights and early mornings kind of week. (My own version of Alexander and the Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.) Friday night I got home from work already late to our friend date at the park. I went to put on my tennis shoes but only found one. Eric and I searched under the bed, in the corner of the closet- really in every corner of the house. We couldn't find it, so I squeezed into my tennis shoes that are too small. (Why oh why are my feet growing???) My main question was about the fact that only one shoe was missing. As I pointed out to Eric, any person in their right mind (aka me) would have put the shoes away together.

So following my way too early 6th certification test to become a teacher (again), I began sorting laundry and found ... you guessed it - or if you didn't read my title :) - my shoe in the hamper. Apparently, my mind was "left" at some point this week.

Not to worry, though. It's a beautiful Saturday, and I'm off to read for bookclub and recover my brain!

Viva la Mexico!

In the United States, we go to great lengths to celebrate Mexico's Independence Day... you know Cinco de Mayo... err wait, that's just the day the Mexicans won the battle of Puebla against some French people. Anyways, either way, it's an excuse to party!

So to help correct a grave misconception, Eric and I decided to throw a real Mexico Birthday Party for their independence day on the 16th of September... except we had it on Friday. Either way, it was an excuse to party!

We had great food, great music, great friends, and great Mexican train goodness. Below are some pictures from our Fiesta de Dieciseis de Septiembre on September 18th!

Good Evening!

Yes, indeed it was a good one.

* Managed to leave work before 6 pm (ugh, don't even get me started on that...)
* Had a good run with Sus... and solved the healthcare system (yeah right).
* Eric made a delicious dinner... involving pasta, chicken, and mushrooms (yes, I like mushrooms now).
* And he even agreed to watch what I've just re-decided is one of my all time favorite movies...

This movie always cracks me up. I've had a hankering to watch it for a few days ever since I was talking to a friend about Fool's Gold. However, hands down Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey are much better in this. In college, we probably watched this movie- how many times???- I'll guess 7. The soundtrack is awesome; the memories are awesome; and I think Eric may even like (tolerate) it.

All in all, it was a good evening. I'm off to bed!

Slow and Steady...

Gets your body up two 14ers in one day!

Eric and I reached our first 2 14,000 feet summits. And it was good- and tiring!

We are glad we went- and next year plan to do it again!

Peak #1 (Gray's)

Peak #2 (Torrey's)
