(after asking Daniel, I remember)
We had tacos and watched Pearl Harbor. I bought a copy of it while overseas, and apparently had the directors cut which includes VERY graphic scenes. This is one of my fave movies, so i knew it pretty well. But when I was closing my eyes from the gore, i knew something was up. A small google search later and i discovered it. Just not sure what to do now....
Saturday was a day of cleaning, some rest, and having friends over for dinner. Daniel also fixed our vacuum. I thought it needed a new bag (after it started smoking so bad the last time i used it and nearly caught on fire). But the belt was actually broken, so Daniel willingly went and bought a new belt and fixed it. This is another moment that i'm glad to have Daniel in my life. Because if it were up to me, i would've thought the vacuum was a complete loss or complained to some poor customer service person who didn't deserve my wrath.
We had friends over for dinner Sat nite and had a great time. Our friends are soon to be married, which is fun for us, because we were in their shoes just a few months ago. So of course we passed on our wisdom and ways we have perfected our own marriage. (HA!)
Note: if you're not someone who is REALLY close to me, i go into panic mode before hosting anyone. I clean like i've never cleaned before (while Daniel helps but is still confused on why the remote control needs to be antibacterialized), and i think that people will obviously notice if there is a crumb on the floor or a book out of place.
weird, i know. but this is who i am.
I will also hyperventilate if the food does not go as planned. When I accidentally mixed up one of the layers on the lasagna on Sat night, our house was declared in a state of emergency. If you think i'm kidding, ask Daniel. Bless him for even choosing to be around me while i am like this. :)
* the lasagna still turned out great, who knew*
Sunday, we had an AMAZING time at church. From Sunday school (i still call it this, even though most churches now have a special name instead) to big church (it will always be big church to me), there was conviction, guilt, peace, redemption, growth, and my favorite, worship.
2 girls at church sang a Barlow Girl song, "You Led me" which i've never heard before but still cannot get out of my head. I LOVE IT!!!! I think it's kind of old, but i've never really listened to Barlow Girl, so all of their songs are new to me.
Sunday was definitely one of those pivotal days for me. not just a good time at church where i felt fuzzy and warm or my favorite songs were played, but one of those times where you know you'll remember that service for many days to come.
Most of Sunday afternoon was spent in preparation for the Super Bowl! But i got so busy baking and cooking, that i missed most of what happened.
First: we had homemade hummus with garlic naan. SO good. I added extra paprika for a little bit of a kick.
THEN, we had pizza! when we make pizza we put about 10 pounds of toppings on it. I mean, can you really eat too much bell pepper? we don't think so either. Daniel won't eat black olives, so i just put them on my side :)
