First off, I've started a Flickr account. I'm over the whole Ringo-closing-down thing and have learned to love this new site already! I am going to be picky about who I let see my photos, but if you want to be my friend, give it a try. I have this irrationally intense fear that someone is going to stalk me online and find me in real life. Therefore, I am weary about giving random folks access to my account. =/
These last few days have been exhausting. I haven't really had a chance to catch up on my sleep since the New Orleans trip. Wednesday night I went with Travis, my dad and Alex down to visit Ariel at the bar where she works. We enjoyed her excellent Mojitos and didn't leave there until 10:30pm. Arg. Alex has been there before, but it was nice that my dad finally got to see her place of employment. This is probably the longest job she's ever held. I really feel like she is maturing.

I love my husband. =)
Last night we went over to Ariel and Robert's new apartment for dinner. I was the only one who had seen it before, so it was new for everyone else. We brought along housewarming gifts since this is Ariel's first real place of her own. They have done a very good job of getting everything unpacked and organized. Plus, they've bought a bunch of new stuff to decorate the bathroom. They are really making it their home. My dad and Alex gave them dishes and Illini shirts. Travis and I got them wine glasses and a bottle of wine. We even got to use the new stuff for dinner. Robert made a fabulous chicken alfredo pasta dish with veggies, garlic bread and salad. For dessert, my dad made flaming carmelized bananas.
Dessert on fire. Step away.
