So, yeah...we decided to party on the Sunday because those who fly on Tuesday can't drink (well, not over drink) on the real fourth which is today, Monday. We got a half keg which lasted quite a while, made some dip from scratch (Guac, pico de gallo, salsa <-- all Laura's recipes but I think I got it down), some homemade hamburger patties and had a good time. Dave brought over some cookies that he made from scratch and Will Wang made some awesome apple sauce. People had a good time, but to make this blog short, alcohol, I don't think, makes for a necessarily good party. It does in moderation but things easily do get out of hand. Mostly, emotions get thrown all over the place. I didn't even have one sip and I don't think that I wanted it. I'm kind of over it a little bit. Who knows though, I might just get plastered sometime from now. (I highly doubt it though) This is a picture before it "started" in my backyard party. (left to right: Rusty's Dad, Rusty, Cameron, Dave M., Manoj, and myself) I have to give a shout out to Matt Elliott though. He called me this afternoon (Monday around 12:00ish) and offered to up clean up. I thought that was awesome. But, knowing me, at least my new me and independent from my family who usually cleans, I stayed up till 5:00 cleaning like mad. I mean, it looked as if we didn't have a party except for keg on the kitchen floor and some towels. I did the dishes, took out the trash (with the help of Manoj) and it was a good time. I even got on my knees and wiped the stupid floor from people tracking green moss from the cement deck in the backyard. And yes, I did it in my 7 Jeans and Lacoste shirt. It's just clothes right?!
I miss my Lisa! <3
