What better thing to do then talk about your weekend after a long working Monday? That's what I thought.

If you've ever wondered what goes on inside the LDS temples this just might be the best video to watch. I'm so grateful to have temples on this earth and am so grateful for the comfort and power I feel when I attend the temple. It is so worth everything.

^picture via dad, and then he posted it to fb. what a turd (:
And so yesterday was one of my first last days of school. Technically tomorrow is my last first day of school because that's when my actual classes start, but yesterday pretty much started it all off. It was one of those days where the staff says "let's come up with the meanest thing to do to these seniors." and then they decided to lecture ALL DAY LONG. I can't really complain though because I got 8 internship hours for sitting in a class and listening to people talk. Not-too-shabby... I guess.
We had a few breaks here and there and I went with a group of classmates to a corner bakery and ordered my typical mac&cheese. If I've never been to a place before I always look for the "safe" foods and mac&cheese is my main squeeze. So I paid 7$ for that mac&cheese, 7$! I was surprised when I found out how much it was and was thinking the cheese was made of diamonds or something. One thing I have to say is that if you sell your mac&cheese for 7$ it had better be the best I've ever had. It was good, but it wasn't the best. And then I started thinking about how I would love to have like 5 different mac&cheeses in front of me so I could really accurately judge who makes it the best.
After class got out I took a stroll downtown and walked to my dad's work. I felt kind of touristy because of all the pictures I was taking, but let's get real, I don't have many downtown pictures in my picture collection. I walked and walked in 108 degree heat, thankfully some of the buildings shaded me, I saw charming charlie's and was tempted to walk inside, but realized I had my backpack on and they would probably mistake me for a robber. Maybe next time. I don't know what it is about a city with tall buildings, but it makes me feel adventurous. I have to say, it's definitely no new york!
(could you spot the group of freshmen? why would you wear an asu shirt the first day of school?)

This weekend flew by, of course it's like most weekends and it was actually pretty eventful.
So Friday night we remembered we had a giftcard to texas roadhouse --never been there before-- and so of course that's where we headed. We've heard a lot of talk about it and have always wondered why everyone likes it so much. So there we are, eating -like you do at any restaurant, when I see (at a few tables behind Brand) two ladies waving a fan in another ladies face and hear someone on the phone with 911. Long story short a lady was taken out on a gurney all the while we are eating... awkwardly eating might I add. For some reason it just doesn't feel right to be eating while someone is being rushed out on a gurney, but we just kept eating and everyone else stood up in their chairs to be nosy and look at all the commotion.
I guess the whole thing was just awkward and it made me start thinking about how nosy people generally are. And it ended up with me coming to the conclusion that people are general nosy, although I don't feel that I myself am, because the social worker in me says "well how would I feel if people were staring at me?" so I don't like to stare. Also, didn't our mothers tell us it's not polite?! Come on people!
After dinner, we realized that texas roadhouse isn't all it's cracked up to be and agreed that we would probably never go again unless we got a gift card and didn't have to wait more than 15 minutes to get a seat. I guess we aren't really country folk.
First I'll answer your question. Yes, that is a car seat in the back of our car, I'm a nanny until Wednesday.
Afterwards I had a $10 kohls cash that was burning a hole in my pocket -don't they always, and so we had to use it. I once again found nothing that I had to have, but Brand found this cute collared shirt. So the trip wasn't all for not, thank goodness.
Also, have I ever told you about Arizona's sunsets? Friday night's was to die for, it turned the sky purple right as it was ending and it was one of those that looks better in person than in a picture. Arizona is notorious for beautiful sunsets and my most favorite thing to do in spring is to hike the mountain just before sunset and sit and watch. Mmmm beautiful.
Somewhere in between Friday and Saturday night we had a starbucks run, we don't go there too often because it's pretty expensive, but when we do it's heavenly. I think I finished my frap in about 5 minutes.
One more thing, we discussed that our future children are going to be lovers of The Temptations just like us. Oh and Billy Joel. End of story.

So just let me start by telling you how much I love finding new places to eat. I love it a lot. So much that when I eat their for the first time I know that it wont be my last and it gets me all excited. This weekend we found a restaurant that hit the jackpot. White Eyes Fresh Fry Bread, is what they call it. It's one of those places that you can see your self coming back to not only for the dinner but for the dessert too.
It's like Mexican food on steroids, and we all know how much I love Mexican food.
I could see this place it being extremely successful in New York, with all the hustle and bustle of the city, hungry workers of corporate America on their lunch break just looking for the place that will hit the spot. Or maybe it's because I feel like this is the kind of food they eat in New York, made quick to be eaten on the go. And then sometimes I think I just hold New York to a high standard of intrigue and zeal. I mean, all the movies make it look like such a cool city. I know I'd live there in a heart beat. I don't think my heart has been the same since 07 when I took my first visit.
Baaaack to my weekend foodie visit. Speaking of foodie, I'm pretty sure the people thought I was a foodie with the amount of pictures I was taking. It kind of felt awkward! I even had Brand take a few for me because I felt like a total dweeb! Has this ever happened to you?!
So the dinner was great and the dessert was delicious, and we will be heading back there again I'm absolutely positive.
And of course, our night would not be complete without a trip to world market. Let's just take a minute and look at all that yummy chocolate. I couldn't get myself to buy any of it, but I was just fine standing back and talking a long stare at it. I can only imagine what those kids felt when the got to go to willy wonka's chocolate factory. Turds.
We spent a good half hour there and I strolled along every isle picturing each item in my apartment, until I ran out of space in my apartment. Then I started decorating a new apartment. I could decorate my life in world market, such ornate beautiful things they have.
