Weekend of Sept. 16th

Friday night was fairly uneventful, except for when Shannon picked me up from work. I love it when she does that!! Saturday, Shannon went to work and I picked her up! We then went to dinner at this chinese restraurant near our apartment. Following dinner, we went back to the apartment and watched the final disc of The Office season 3. It was really good and it was even better to finally find out what happened at the end of the season. There were quite a few twists and turns. I'm excited to watch the new season, which I hear will be shown on the NBC website.

Sunday, Harry Reid came to our ward, which was really cool. I had to tell Shannon who he was. We then came home and googled him. It's been a great weekend--very relaxing and just what I needed to re-energize for the coming week.

Central Park Zoo

For Labor day Michael and I decided to invite some new members to come with us to the zoo. WE HAD AN ABSOLUTE BLAST! We loved it! There was this building right when you walked in the gate that was labeled " Animals in Crisis". We walked in expecting to see some sort of endangered species. However, when you got inside it was a big empty room!!! I guess those animals really are in a crisis! After the zoo, we took a nice walk down 5th Avenue. We walked past Gucci, Versece, Prada, Cole Han, brooks Brothers and many other stores that were fun to see...We didn't do any purchasing! We took a train from Rockefeller Center to the West Village! We walked around for a while down there. We noticed how different the Village was from where we live. The village had a much quieter, smaller town feel. It was REALLY fun! To end the evening we went back home and ordered some food from this restaurant named Jackson Hole!

Powdered Sugar by the Spoonfull

Wow! All I can say is wow!

I just saw the most amazing thing from my wife. She eats powdered sugar by the spoonfull. She was so kind to make german pancakes, bacon, and muffins this morning for breakfast. We sit down to eat and toward the end...she eats an entire spoonfull of powdered sugar. I couldn't believe it.

And all she can say is yum! ...that means it must be healthy! Wow!
