We had another fun filled weekend. It kind of started on Thursday. I got to spend the day with my mom which was nice. We bribed her with lunch so she'd come check out our sewing machine :) And of course she was able to make it work. Then we spent about 3 hours at Chipotle, can you believe she'd never been there before? And what was her observation? "this is a lot of food!" haha welcome to Chipotle, mom. And then we spent a couple of hours in Starbucks where my mother got me hooked on a silly game on my phone. We're playing Phrase Wheel, which is basically Wheel of Fortune. My mom, Aunt, and myself play so when I got home I convinced Adam to play too. It's funny to hear him complain about how good my mom is at this silly game. It's kind of becoming an obsession for us. Friday was like any other day Adam had Tae Kwon Do after work so Pepper and I just chilled out together. It was nice :) I love my puppy!
And that brings us to Saturday. We got up in time for Adam to eat a healthy meal because Saturday was his belt test in Tae Kwon Do. He went into the test as a Green belt, testing for the Purple belt. The tournament I went to a couple of weekends ago was my first look at Tae Kwon Do, so I was wondering what the test would be like. If you had told me it would be almost 2 hours long, I would have thought I would be bored, but I never was. There were four people testing, two women, one young boy, and Adam. Those four worked their patooties off. I was impressed by everything they had to know, from forms, to wrist locks, and self defense. And when they were completely tired their instructor came out to "attack" them and make sure they could get out of all the self defense moves, it was pretty intense. It might be just my opinion but I thought Adam did the best job of any one. His moves were crisp and powerful. I was mighty impressed.
Here are some photos from the big day.
Dan and Adam (wearing the new Purple belt!)
As you can tell everyone is happy, they all earned their new belts. Congratulations!!!!! Everyone worked hard and truly earned their achievements.
Afterward we went home to regroup and we let the dog out for less than 5 minutes and she rolled in poop. So I got to give her, the second bath for this week. Then we met up with Adam's mom and brother and that group for lunch at Red Lobster. Where apparantly their heater wasn't working, so we froze during lunch. Afterward Adam went out to help with construction on someone's house from work. And I decided to enjoy the time to myself. I grabbed some groceries and a little treat for myself.
My favorite candy bar is SKOR by Hershey, but you can't find them everywhere, so if I see one I have to buy it :)
Also I love Hard Cider (it's kind of my drink) and at the grocery store I saw this bad boy and just had to try it.
And just like any pressurized drink that was laying on its side when I opened it it exploded all over my hand. So my first taste was a lick off my hand :) But a SKOR bar and this special seasonal hard cider and of course my favorite show Frasier (especially the episode "high holidays") made for one relaxing afternoon. Not to mention I got to snuggle with my puppy who smelled wonderful!
