i am not feeling very nostalgic right now, but i turned 29 last weekend so i’ll tell you about that.
i took some friends roller skating.
that’s what i look like when i’m skating away! i think i need to work on my form.
afterwards i got a drink named after me, “tropical storm amy.” that was pretty neat. considering it was a blizzard outside. i took the opportunity to pretend i was on a beach.
i can’t stop taking photos of this pug. his name is sid.
the next morning, i woke up early and braved the snowy, slick streets to eat some brunch with my gal, kristi. i had pancakes and bacon and they were dee-lish-us! delicious.
then i cleaned cleaned cleaned my house and baked baked baked a cake and mixed mixed mixed up a cheeseball and pinwheels. because i was expecting company, you see. buddies to help me celebrate my birthday.
chris arrived first and, being a girl and all, i wasn’t quite ready for company yet. so i made him frost the cake. he did a very lovely job.
my niece started saying my name this weekend! that was a very nice birthday gift. she’s too cute, i think i’ll keep her around.
i love this photo. ann and hannie look like they’re giggling at the same girly gossip!
then dan brought the most giganticest bottle of bubbly he could find at the liquor store a block away.
and my friends played yahtzee.
all of the fun really tuckered poor ellipses right out, i guess.
my neighbors from across the street, sarah and rich, brought me a couple bottles from their store, vinaigrette. 50th and xerxes in minneapolis! go peruse their wares.
my peace lily bloomed! how nice.
and i have some wines that aren’t three buck chuck because my friends are so generous and nice. (note that bottle of apothic red! somebody has been reading these little updates – hooray!)
