Thoughts on married life thus far


I'm all over the place with things I've been wanting to post in this space. I'm adjusting to a new job, which means I'm adjusting to a new schedule and a new commute, which means I'm working on ways to find time to sit down and get all my thoughts out on this screen. Hopefully that'll happen soon. I have a whole list of drafts that are just waiting to be typed up. 

In the meantime, I thought I'd take today to share my thoughts on married life thus far. Sounds fun, right? It is... for the most part.

Poor Calvin's.

I've been meaning to post about Poor Calvin's for a while now, but the pictures I took were snapped quickly (honestly, they don't do the food justice), in hopes of not ruining my date night with Meredith a while back. She randomly asked if I wanted to go to dinner one night (yes, she's that awesome of a friend), and since it's me, of course I said 'yes!' I'm looking for a way to return that favor soon, because I owe her big. BIG. This dinner was amaaaazing. Together we ordered and shared the Fried Chicken, Lobster Mac n' Cheese, Grilled Asparagus and Pad Thai Tiger Shrimp. Oh, and there was a massive slice of cake for dessert (not pictured). It's not on the menu, and I can't remember the name, so I almost feel like there's no point in mentioning it, but it was too good to skip over. So there ya' have it.

A bookworm's fantasy.

Last Saturday was made up of errand-running, house-cleaning, grocery shopping and all that jazz. Last Sunday, on the other hand, was plucked straight from a bookworm's fantasy: book club. Our monthly bookclub meeting usually takes place in someone's home, but this month, we took advantage of clear skies and the fact that Piedmont Park didn't have some sort of event going on - a rarity on summer weekends.
So, we gathered. On blankets. In the shade. On a breezy July afternoon. We talked lit a couple candles, talked about the book, ate snacks, sipped our drinks, laughed and let the conversation flow in every which direction. It was nice. As for Paper Towns, it won't go on my list of recommendations; the storyline fell flat halfway through, and I literally rolled my eyes at the ending. From what I've heard, the movie adaptation followed suit, so hopefully we'll jump into something better for our next read.
