So it was Martin's Birthday and we stuffed everyone from the party into a single photo booth.
hmmm hmmm, like I said, "it WAS Martin's Birthday..." (But Where Is Martin?!) Oh, Here he is...He is but a Chin.
How did this happen?
Lexie took over way too much space, That's how! She was only allotted head-room but somehow managed to make her entire body known. Martin kept saying "Go Down! Go Down!" as he pressed the top of her head down with his solitary Chin, but she claims she didn't know what this "Go Down" nonsense meant.
A secret ploy to etch Martin out of his own Birthday Image? You decide.

I found some great old carafes and filled them with our shampoos, body wash and conditioner and put them in our bathroom window. I really love how it looks and they all filter the light into little rainbows on the opposite wall.
Fillet Maison with lump crab meat and Gruyere & herb roasted potatoes.And.... Bread Pudding!!!!!!
We also had a really delicious bottle of Robert Mondavi wine.
(thanks to Google images for all of these great pics... I didn't take one at the restaurant because it was sooooo dark in there!)

Once I got home from Starkville, a bunch of friends got together to go out to eat!
While we waited for everyone to get to our house, we all sat around and watched Roomba! I love Roomba! He's my favorite vacuuming robot ever! If you don't have one... you should seriously consider getting one! I got him as a graduation gift from my mom (who was like "you want a vacuum for graduation?!" and I was like "heck yes!" so I got one!) I really hate to vacuum, and with Roomba, I'll never have to again! I just press 'clean' and he does (or schedule a cleaning time and I don't even have to press anything)! Once he's done cleaning, he even re-docks himself so he can recharge his batteries!
We all met at our house and decided to walk to the Mexican Restaurant. People honked at us like they'd never seen people walk anywhere. The walk was way more like a nature hike... Let me show you:
Complete lack of sidewalks.Shrubbery-infused walk ways. (which forced us to take a 'one-at-a-time' straight line approach to walking.)Broken and cracked sidewalks.Walking in the street.Overgrown sidewalks.Low-hanging trees...
We did finally make it, however.Bryan accidentally cut his head off... That's his forehead near me.
Here we have Lexie, Parker, Aaron, Meredith, Sully, Christine, Me and Bryan's forehead.This painted wooden parrot, strapped to this bracket near our table was really curious. Some places make the decor a little less obvious, but this place had no shame. PETA should be alerted immediately.
When we got back to our house, Meredith popped a blackberry cobbler into the oven and Christine made a Strawberry Rhubarb pie from scratch! They were both delicious! I've never had Rhubarb pie but it was fantastic! I'll have to get the recipe!
More updates to come. Hopefully our house will be in photographable order soon! Have a great Saturday!

I drove for the first time in three months yesterday. It was scary. I also noticed that I was a much more aggressive driver than when I left. I guess I made it out of NY with a little bit of attitude and in more of a hurry than anyone else around here. I did make it to the store and back in one piece though which is always the goal.
Pictures to come! Of what I don't know, but there will be some soon!
