My leadership seminar class partnered with an event on campus called: Thirsty Thursday. We helped in different leadership roles such as advertising, purchase orders, securing door prizes, and creating a raffle. The event went off well and a fun time was had by all. It started at 7:30 and went until almost midnight. There was root-beer floats, root-beer pong, condom poker, and a couple of movies. It went so well we ran out of root-beer and ice-cream before the actual scheduled ending time.
We got a surprise drop of snow on Thursday night so it made travel a little treacherous. I left for the cities a little before noon on Friday and took my time getting there. The roads were a little iffy and I even stopped once when I saw an SUV on its side in the ditch. I ran down like a Baywatch champ but the girl had been wearing her seat belt and was sitting in her car talking on her cell phone to her Dad. So I left and continued on. When I got to Nicks, we immediately turned around and left for Ada. Uhhh my ass was sore from sitting in the car for so long. We met his family at his Grandpa’s house outside of Borup before moving on to Ada. Saturday we celebrated with Nicks’ family. We headed to the Deco to play some ping pong, took a nap, then headed for his Grandpa’s house again. We had some pretty good food, although I am still not sure about this so called “glorified rice” dish. The glory still alludes me. We left that night with the destination being my cousin’s house in Sartell (St. Cloud). The roads were kind of bad so we decided to spend the night in Moorhead. On the way to town, we stopped by the Gilbertson’s to see the new puppies. There are 10 of them and they are really cute, aside from all their pooping and peeing.
We left a little before 9 on clear roads on Sunday morning and got to Sartell when everyone was just getting back to the house after church. My Grandma had made dough nuts so we had a little breakfast before being beat by my little cousins in Disney Scene It, although let it be known that they cheat and they have played so many times they know all the answers. They were pretty impressed that we knew our Disney facts though. We had lunch and then the old people left to go shopping. The kids stayed back and went on a giant egg hunt. We made egg teams, Ashley and I versus Emily and Nick, and took turns hiding all 120 plastic eggs. Emily and Nick do not know how to hide eggs very well and placed some of them in the middle of the floor but they claim that “it was hard to find so many hiding places.” Sounds like a cop-out to me. Ashley and I were so good that they couldn’t find them all. My Uncle owns a bike shop so we went and bought two new bikes at a pretty good deal. We both had been wanting some new, quality bikes for a couple of years and are now looking forward to exploring the Minneapolis bike trails this summer. To the beach! We also found a “Caramel Roll Run” where you ride your bike for the day and at various stops there are caramel rolls. Nick is sold on this idea and would like to go. Sounds like fun so maybe we will. We got home and met Brouse and Marisa for a movie at the apartment.
Today is a lazy day for me. I have some homework to do but I don’t know if I will get around to doing it. I have been cleaning a little after the remodeling that was done to the apartment last week. Adding my dishes and putting away everything that had to be moved. Not sure what we will do tonight but I have to go home tomorrow afternoon.
Also, tomorrow is Nicks 24th birthday!
