Like a Good Neighbor...

This weekend was so much fun! I learned to cook on Friday night and we went to a wedding on Saturday night in Dahlonega, GA at a winery. I know, going to a wedding isn't always a lot of fun, but this one really was a good time. Laura and Mark, two of our neighbors, had a beautiful and very personal wedding ceremony. Jason, Tina, Danielle, Khan, Trish, Dennis and I all drove to the wedding and spent the entire night laughing, entertaining ourselves, and enjoying the delicious wine (we came home with a case of 'Plentitude'.)

It is very interesting how you make new friends throughout your life and as you go through different phases. There is the high school phase, the college phase, the we-have-a-serious-significant-other phase, the getting married phase, the kid phase, and so many more phases that we have yet to experience. The good friends are the multi-phasers. They are here for the long haul. ANYWAY, the point that I'm trying to make is that we're now in the we-have-great-neighbors phase.

After living in our house almost three years, we have made some amazing friends that live just seconds (literally) away. I know that my co-workers often laugh or roll their eyes when they ask what Dennis and I are doing for the weekend because it almost always goes something like this: "we're doing (insert activity here) with the neighbors..." I don't think that they believe me and may actually think that I'm making it up to avoid doing something with them. (Nahh...I would never do something like that!) They just don't understand that we have a lot of awesome neighbors (including ourselves, of course!) that we really enjoying hanging out with.

(Oh, and BTW, I am going to grow my hair long again so that I don't get any more MLR look-alike comments. Or Webster look-alike comments.)

If you grow your hair long, you'll just look like Michael Jackson circa-1984. But if that's what you're going for, that's cool.

(I'm just bitter because apparently y'all have moved on from the phase when I was your friend. So screw off, suckas.)

Were we ever in that phase? Really?

what about a mullet? maybe that would be a good idea. y'know, "business in the front, and party in the back"?
