easter weekend.

This past Easter weekend I had Friday off from school, so I went up to College Station to spend my (well earned) three-day weekend with Andy.

I've slowly been collecting up easy, but yummy recipes to teach myself how to cook. And since I've started cooking for the two of us I've found I really love it. Before I knew I could bake decently, but it turns out, I can also cook pretty well and it's so much fun. So this week we splurged at the grocery store and picked up some New York Strip steaks, asparagus, and other very yummy things that I cooked up for dinner for the two of us.

On Thursday, I made seasoned NY Strip Steak with roasted asparagus and pomegranate vinegarette spinach salad.

And then on Saturday I made some pizza baked spaghetti and used up the left over spinach to make another salad.

Way too much fun. I'm trying to find some super fun recipes for this weekend, so if you know of any or a site that has great recipes, let me know!

Also this weekend our little guppy died, so we went ahead and got a dwarf puffer fish from Petsmart and brought the little guy home to his new home. He's so tiny and can swim awfully fast when he wants to, so I did my best to get a picture of the little guy.

I had another green spotted puffer who wasn't a dwarf that I had named Robby-Bobby, but my roommate killed him one weekend while I was way. So in honor of Robby-Bobby we named this new little guy Baby Bobby Pops. Silly, yes, but that's us, so it fits.

It was a great weekend and I can't wait for the next one.

spring is here.

I took a break from my busy school schedule and went to visit Andy's (my boyfriend) new puppy in Dallas with him this weekend. I don't have pictures of the adorable yellow lab puppy (deemed Lemonbutt) because Andy's mom stole the memory card I put the pictures I took on, but hopefully I'll have them soon. However, I do have pictures from all the great wild flowers that were in bloom along the way. The pictures aren't that great because I took them from the car as we sped by, but I thought I'd share them anyway.

My favorite are the bluebonnets, the Texas state flower. We don't get them up where I'm from so it's very exciting for me to see them in bloom out in the wild. Very gorgeous. Sometimes we'd drive past these huge fields of them that just took your breath away. When we weren't driving and playing with puppies, me and Andy had a Sonic Spinball marathon on his Wii.
Here's Andy playing with my wiimote (it has sea life on it!) in his glasses from seeing Meet the Robinsons in 3-D, which was totally worth seeing because the 3-D was awesome even if the movie wasn't the greatest. "I have a big head, and little arms. I'm just not sure how well this plan was thought through." But anyway, we found these glasses hilarous because they were like Horn Rimmed Buddy Holly glasses. Just proves that "Heroes" is an influence in designing 3-D glasses.
