This weekend was supposed to be so chill, but then all of a sudden everything happened. I guess it was still pretty laid back, but a lot of visiting happened. I love visiting.
Friday it was my cousin Gabe's 11th birthday. We met them at the Cheesecake Factory
, which was different and better than I had planned. Gabe's pot pie was not small
. After dinner, Nick and Nicole came over to hang out. Plus Ben happened to be in town so he hung out also. I wish I was going to the Psychopathic All-stars show this week. The combination of work with living in Iowa kills my roxtar aspirations.
Saturday after marriage counseling I started building a new box to grind on (hehehehehehehe). Then Zach showed up to help me finish. It is such a nice box. Angle iron
on one side and 2" coping
on the other. Versatility, yeah. After skating
for a while we ate sushi
, went to Drink
, the cAb
, and Stix
. Drink and Stix both wouldn't let me bring my camera in - it was funny. I made a big deal about it. Chutes and Ladders in Ankeny is just nothing like Mt Vernon... no matter how hard we try.
Sunday we went out to Indianola to try to check out this band for our wedding. They were playing at the Summerset winery... somehow we got lost and ended up at the end of this gravel road at an outdoor shooting range, haha. It was funny. I want to shoot guns again. Later we found the winery and also found immense cheesiness. Then we grilled
. I love grilling.
Zach's interview was today - I hope it went well... I'm sure it did. He's applying for a job similar to mine, he's so qualified for it, it's insane.
