happy mlk weekend to you

cindy came into town this weekend and it was golden. i picked her up from the airport and we headed straight to the institute dance. it was a party, but a little too techno for us. we headed home a little early to sit around the table and gossip with aly and allred.
saturday was full of goodness. we went to lunch at tucanos (at cindy's request). it sounds bad, but if you flirt with those meat men, it makes the trip that much better. here's to andy, who brought around that garlic sirloin often and played those drums like a master congo drummer man.
cindy and i made a visit or two and then got some shopping done. it was nice to not have to make official plans. cindy and i could just wing it and be satisfied just spending time together. we left straight from the mall and headed to the movie theater. lindsey met us there to watch BRIDE WARS. okay, it doesn't take much to please me when it comes to movies. bride wars was better than i could have ever expected. we laughed, we cried, we bonded as girls. yes, we really cried.
cindy might kill me for posting this picture. whoopsies.
after the movie, we stopped off for a little hot chocolate and ran home to put on our jammies. i'm pretty sure the night was full of giggling, girl talk and ugly singing. when i'm not careful, my old laugh comes out around these girls. the old laugh that i told myself i had to change or lose friends.
i taught my lesson today in rs and was grateful for the participation from the class. i love love love my calling. oh yes. i had my first temple prep class today. how lucky am i that i have my own class? the high councilman and his wife teach it, and today they made a cute little flip chart for the lesson. i love it.
i don't have work off tomorrow for the holiday, but my boss is out of town for 10 days, so i'll probably work through lunch and leave a little early. so sue me for wanting to celebrate the holiday.
hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. and if anyone wants to see bride wars, i'll go withyou and hold your hand.
(if you are a girl, we will hold hands at the end to bond as friends and cry together in the good parts. if you are a boy, we can hold hands for the whole thing. truth.)

So Ummm, do you realize it's not President's Day tomorrow? Just checking. You think you would know that because you visited every Lincoln site imaginable. Even the well of his childhood.
Glad you had a good weekend whichever weekend this actually is.

My child told me they watched a movie at school on Friday about Martin King Jr. "What did he do?" I asked him. "I don't know," he said. "But his name is Martin King Jr."
