Our Little Weekend

Weekends here at the Gringeris are hardly days to lounge and relax.
This weekend I feel like we were particularly busy.

Friday my weekend started when I finished a huge kanji quiz.
(let me just say, Japanese is taking over my life this semester).

I think I got an hour at home to eat and unwind before we met Lauren and Ryan at The Quarry for a few hours of climbing.
Ryan was pretty good for his first time; he climbed a V2!
Although word on the street is they’re still sore šŸ™‚

I needed a little study time when we got back followed by homemade mac n cheese and a candle lit date night šŸ™‚ Ben’s the greatest šŸ™‚

Saturday I as gone from 10 to 5, busy but great.
We started the day at a stake relief society event where we could pick between so many different classes.
Things I learned:
1. I will NEVER have enough time to be good at couponing.
2. You have to strain the batter to make a perfect crepe.
3. Date nights are super important, even when you’re married.
4. Nutella is my favorite (that wasn’t new).

Following a lovely morning with Brooke and Carly I headed to campus for a last minute review before my first Japanese Midterm (yes, I had a quiz and a midterm back to back).

After the midterm I met up with two of the cutest bloggers, Hayley and Brooke, to get started on this BYU Blogger Meet-up. Let me tell you guys, its going to be great! We are having so much fun and I am really looking forward to meeting all of you  šŸ™‚ Watch for an announcement this week about a few of the details we’ve decided!

Saturday evening we headed up to Salt Lake to climbing, coldstone, and fabulous company before collapsing into bed sometime far too late for me šŸ™‚

Sunday Highlights:
I opened a package from a giveaway I won … stay tuned for more info on that!
We also got to go to our friend Ryan’s mission farewell (yes, the boy we took climbing :). He will be serving the Lord and the people of Argentina for the next two years! After church we headed back to his house for lots of delicious food and dessert. Oreo frosting? Yupp, I’m obsessed. I’m going to have to start experimenting with a recipe.

We’ll miss you Ryan!

Is the suspense killing you?
He’s a dork. 

And then there was lots of letter writing, nap taking, friends, and crepes…and an alarm that went off much to soon this Monday morning.

I hope you guys all had a wonderful weekend!

  5. I love that you're taking Japanese! I took it for several years in high school and used to be pretty fluent, but I think it has nearly all evaporated from my brain now. šŸ™
    Definitely travel to Japan if you get the chance, it's an amazing country.
