Chinese food, lots of driving, and the domestic trinity…

I finally finished exams so now I’m just waiting to see what my grades are. I at least passed them all so I guess I’ll just go from there. Anyways, last night I went to PF Changs with Caroline, Amanda, Willie, and Ben. It was exciting. Dinner was good and we were having a good time and then this group of people came into the place and set up a random party table right behind us. It was a very eclectic group of people and there were lots of theories about who they were, we still don’t know, but there was man with them who was wearing a cowboy hat and he had a deer antler knife around his neck. He was quite entertaining. Unfortunately we were not able to secure a good picture of him, although it wasn’t for a lack of trying. After dinner Caroline and I headed back to Converse and watched The Matrix and made peppermint Joe-Joe milkshakes – all in all a good night. Oh and I stole chopsticks from PF Changs, which is a big deal because I’ve never stolen anything before. 

I had to wake up early this morning and pack up my car and head back to Fairhope for Christmas break. I went and saw Rachel first and talked to her and then headed towards Atlanta. I was a fairly good trip except that my Garmin, named Charlie, decided to die and my ipod got stuck underneath my seat and the only radio stations I could actually get were in Spanish. Oh well…I did go to Trader Joes though and bought some yummy treats for my family. I bought some Peppermint Joe-Joes’s which are like oreos but better, some sea salt chocolate, and then some pizza dough and lots of nuts. I love Trader-Joes!

Since I’m not working all the time over this break I have decided to learn a new skill – sewing. I bought a book on how to sew aprons and I’m going to get my Granmary to teach me how to sew. It’s part of my plan to achieve the domestic trinity – cooking, cleaning ,and sewing. I already know how to cook and clean so I only need this last skill. Hopefully my apron will turn out as nicely as the one in the cute little book. If I am able to get the skill then everyone is going to start getting aprons for their birthdays. If not then at least the book is still really cute.
