Tessa and I got to be social for a change this weekend! We started off Saturday having to rush to Rutherford County for Tessa's best friend, Krista's wedding shower because we had to wait on the Charter guy to take a look at our Internet connection. Our connection kept going out on our new TV and DirecTV so, suspecting the wireless router, we plugged Tessa's laptop directly into our modem but it was still being glitchy. As it turns out, it was apparently our wireless router after all (even though the damn thing isn't even six months old) which doesn't explain the glitchiness of being plugged directly into the modem so who knows?
ANYWAYS, the guy got to our house just before noon and the shower was at 2 so that had us scrambling up the road around 1:30 or so. Needless to say, we were a little late but that didn't stop Krista from breaking some fresh tears when she saw Tessa. I got to meet some friends of Tessa's that I had not met before like Dawn and her husband Jerry both of whom are in this pic. The one I look pregnant in. Damn I've gotta lose some weight!
We had to rush back to Mauldin to grab some supplies to entertain some guests that evening and straighten up the house a bit before meeting at Copper River. Tessa and I got to Copper River around 7:30 and put in for a booth (tables were gonna be a much longer wait) and then Blake and Stacy arrived shortly afterwards. Rob and Michele got there closer to 8 because they had to close down the comic book store, Borderlands.
So the six of us squeezed into a booth and had dinner then went back to our house for some drinks and a few rounds of Apples to Apples. Rob and Michele brought the game and it was the first time Blake, Stacy, Tessa or I had ever played so we had a lot of fun experiencing it for the first time! During one of my turns as a 'judge', I had to excuse myself to the bathroom. The key subject was 'hopeless' and when I came back from the bathroom, this is what I saw:
For anyone that has ever played the game, you should get this! If not, I'm sure you get the idea!
Unfortunately, Tessa didn't get a lot of sleep that night since she had to get up early for work the next morning but it was well worth it! While she was at work, Mom came over and we had brunch at Waffle House then watched Sinister since she had been wanting to see it.
After she left, I put on Inglourious Basterds and got to work on laundry and a few other things around the house including actually fixing some dinner for me and Tessa to eat once she got home! And it wasn't bad for a guy lacking in culinary skills!
