- I went to Raging Waters and went down a couple of the water slides (normally, I wouldn’t attempt this sort of thing—too dangerous, plus the risk of getting my hair wet).
- Dustin and I tried a new restaurant and a new type of food—Thai. We usually go to the same places where I know I can get a yummy salad, so it panics me to go somewhere new, but I was able to order my favorite thing—vegetables—so it was ok J
- I finally got to play a Wii!! I love it so much, and I’m kind of glad we don’t have one because I would seriously be addicted! We went over to my sister’s house to play and I totally kicked ass at the boxing game. It was a really good workout—my arms were sore the next day!
- I made a tuna noodle casserole on Sunday. I know probably everyone in America has eaten this before, but I think the idea of it grossed my mom out, so we never had it growing up. I made kind of a gourmet version out of Better Homes and Gardens with whole wheat pasta, lemon and dill. Very good!
Cheers and applause for not being a stick-in-the-mud. (Clap, clap)

Since I did this without the rules in front of me, I missed a couple things, but here you go anyway:
The Kitchen Sink: As you can see, there are only two dishes--ice cream dishes. We have dessert pretty much every single night after we clean up from dinner. Yum.
The toilet: This is MY bathroom. I didn't take any pictures of Dustin's--no one wants to see that.
The closet: Again this is MY closet, and only half of it because the whole thing wouldn't fit in the frame. Dustin gets his own closet (which is usually half full of my stuff, too--and camping gear :)
The laundry room: This one is funny. We don't actually have a washer and dryer, but we just have the hookups in a little closet thing so I made it into a pantry that we use for food storage. And also a place for Dustin's mountain bike, which isn't in the picture. If you need a can of tomatoes or cream of mushroom soup, you know where to come!
I forgot about the favorite shoes and favorite room, but we can just go ahead and say that the fridge is my favorite room. I spend a lot of time in there! As far as shoes go, my favorites are probably my gym shoes since I use them almost every day, but they are kind of ratty so you can probably forego a picture. There you have it--my life on a Monday night! I'm "tagging" anyone else who reads my blog (all two of you!), so Steph, I better at least see this on yours!

We also got to go shoot some guns and be all cowboy. I know it’s probably funny to see me holding a gun, but I’m really not that bad! I can actually aim a little bit and I WILL shoot your ass if you’re breaking into my house, so don’t mess. :)

Guess what this is?
It’s a pickled turnip! Dustin, my sister and my sister’s friend Jess, went to an absolutely amazing Mediterranean restaurant called Café Med a little while ago, and this little guy arrived on top of my salad. I’ve been accused of being a picky eater, but I’m actually pretty adventurous, as long as the food isn’t fatty, fried, covered in cheese or otherwise fat-panic inducing. Plus I love pickles, and who eats turnips these days? It actually tasted a lot like horseradish—not too bad.
Also--Jess, you are very delightful and permanently always invited!
