On Friday at 3pm, Josh, Brittany and I piled into our poor Honda Accord that has been on too many roadtrips over the past two years for its liking. Josh and I were gluttons and really wanted to eat dinner at Sonics, so, we took a stupid detour, ate greasy food, felt sick, and took 9 hours to get to So Cal when it usually takes 7.
Anyway, we took Tim and Brit out to breakfast on Saturday morning at Mimi’s (which we miss going to) and it was SCRUMPTIOUS!
Then we drove around Riverside and they showed us some of the houses they’ve been looking at to buy. Tons of houses down there are going through foreclosure and it was amazing to see houses that would have been selling for $400,000 when we were in college 2 years ago to starting at $150,000. Then we played rockband and I “failed” out of drumming and base playing. It was pretty depressing. Everyone else was doing great and having fun except for loser girl in the corner who I guess doesn’t have any musical talent.
The wedding was Saturday evening and it was beautiful (see pictures below). It was so great to be there and celebrate with Brooke and Charlie…a couple that couldn’t be better for each other. Talented at everything they do, smart, outgoing, gifted athletes, lovers of Jesus, beautiful, they even look alike! I was really sad b/c we didn’t get a picture with them but it was a great wedding and tons of fun to see all of our friends.
On Sunday we went to church (Sandals…whoop whoop) and then out to lunch with a group of friends to the beloved Lucille’s Smokehouse. Josh and I ordered and shared the best dish on the menu, southern fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy and a side of macaroni and cheese (I prefer the shoestring fries but Josh got his mac n cheese) We order this every time we go. This meal was also scrumptious and we had a great time chattin it up with our friends.
After lunch, we were able to meet up with Tom and Shannon, which was lots of fun b/c we haven’t seen them in a while. Then we headed home, got back at 11pm, went to bed and woke up at 3:30am (Josh) and 7:00am (Liz) for work. It was a GREAT weekend! (And this was a very detailed blog post)
