Saturday evening my friend, Laura (my 1 friend in this town- ha), called me and invited me to a festival/jamboree this town was putting on. It was SO nice to get out of the house! There was a huge car show and tons of junk food. But the best part was the people watching. Don't ask me why I decided to be a bad blogger and not take one picture.... because there was good material at this festival, ha ha. When Eric got off work I met up with him to go walk around the car show (remember- he loves his hot rods!) and again, didn't take one picture! Shame on me. But it turned out to be a good night :)
The rest of our weekend was spent running errands, celebrating my dad's 50th birthday, and a date with new friends! Say whaaaaaaa'? You are totally wondering if you read that right.... and you did! We made new/more friends! YAY!
We tried out a new pizza place and loved it! Apparently a new restaurant is a big deal in this town...
Dessert at Sub Zero. They use liquid nitrogen to freeze the ice cream. Fun to watch and even better to eat :)
He's kind of an ice cream snob and didn't love his... but we really are so happy to have our favorite ice cream spot in town!
Ashely and Austin
In case you didn't get enough of my face with our ice cream... yay! We have new friends!
I totally tested our friendship by pulling out the camera and taking ridiculous pictures for the blog. They couldn't figure out why I'd want a picture of the pizza, and they were dying over my excitement for a group picture (which didn't happen. we all know how Eric would rather not be in pictures...) If they still want to be friends with us then it was meant to be, ha ha!
On a serious note... things are looking up in this town! I am so happy that we are slowly making friends, and it's a relief to have something to look forward to :)
