Little Bits: Party Party

10:59 AM


It was supposed to be a somewhat quiet weekend. WAS. I feel like now that summer is winding down, we are trying to pack everything in before the fall semester starts for Kyle. It is a good thing that we are also looking at a packed September, and a full October as well. 

Anyway, Friday my brother Mark and his girlfriend wanted to meet up for a few beers that night. I came home, cleaned, made dinner, walked the pups, and by the time we got a hold of Mark, he was already drinking and watching the cars at the Woodward Dream Cruise a few miles away. Kyle and I didn't want to fight the traffic, so we biked up to Ferndale for a few beers with Kyle's brother Brian, and our friend Dan. After some drunk karaoke, Kyle and I decided to bike home because we both had busy days on Saturday. 

I woke up a little late the next morning, and rushed to Detroit to take our dogs to the Detroit Dog Party. Yes, you read that correctly, DOGS. We now have a new fuzzy family member! His name is Joseph, and I am going to do a proper blog post on him this week. I met up with our friend Mike, and his friend Anna and let the dogs run around to wear off some energy. I then headed back to Oak Park to drop them off before heading to Meijer and Costco for all of our groceries. I also stopped by Kyle's work to say "hello", and also to get free food, because food. I then came home and had to sort out the pantry area in the basement so that I could put all of our food away. 


I had time for a quick nap before we had to get ready for the intern's 21st birthday party. Our friends Dan, and Mariah came along, and although it was pretty far from our house, we ended up having a pretty good time. We didn't get home until 3:30 am! Then on Sunday we decided to head out to the Renfest with our friends Aaron and Jenny B because we LOVE going, and we also don't get to hangout with them as much as we would like. We ended up spending a little too much money over the weekend, but we also got one credit card paid off, so I guess it cancels out, right? ;) 

I managed to remember to take the camera with me this weekend, so as soon as I get some spare time, I will get the photos up here instead of the usual crappy instagram pics. 

But first, coffee. 

1) Group photo at Renfest.
