bananas and bahama bucks

Just last week, my friend Jana [Banana] came to visit.  I lived with Jana my junior year of college, and I love that girl to death.  One of my favorite things about her is that she can see the good in anyone - a skill I'm still striving [read: working my butt off] to perfect.

Something that shocked me, however, was the revelation that Jana had never been to Bahama Bucks.  We'd known each other for how long and we'd never been there together?  What kind of a friend am I, anyway?

I decided to rectify the situation by taking her there ASAP.  It involved a lot of suffering, but someone had to do it.

She, too, was suffering as you can see.

Who am I kidding?  Tim and I go there every chance we get.

Ah yes.  The extra cream has dramatically improved our quality of life.

[I realize this post is somewhat ironic considering my last post, but I had to be a good host, ok?]

Whilst Jana was here, we spent a little time talking.  And then we, oh you know, talked some more.  And when we got tired of that, we talked a little more.

And ok, ok...we did watch a little Merlin on Netflix here and there.  [A little glimpse into my inner nerd.]

I love how comfortable I am around Jana, and how I can be "me" to the fullest extent and she still loves me in spite of myself.

You can read more about our visit here.

Tim and I also went to the Devey Family Reunion this last weekend, and I will write more about that within the next few days.  But suffice it to say, we had a blast, and I love that family!

And I know, I know...I still need to write the rest of "our story," and I will.  I've just felt a little distracted lately.

Speaking of love stories, remember how I told you I had some news regarding temples and wedding dresses and parties? Well guess what!  Tim's sister, Melissa, is getting married on August 3rd!  Woot woot!  And it's even essentially the same day as we got married last year, since it's the first Friday in August.  We are so happy for them!

At the family reunion!

And an engagement picture, just for fun.

Oh and I start my new job tomorrow!  Eeek!  Wish me luck!

Tangentially, I'm sure this all made perfect sense.  [Or maybe not any at all.  I don't wanna talk about it.]

And I think that's it for now.

I love your inner nerd too! And I appreciate the sacrifice of health food you made in taking me to Bahama Bucks. Might I just say we had some awesome salads while I was there?

That'll definitely have to be a stop I make this weekend. I might shrivel up in the desert otherwise....too used to this mountain air now :)
