All kinds of goody-ness

Yet another great weekend! All kinds of goody-ness to share. :)
On Friday night we ate dinner at Pho Hoacali, the local Vietnamese restaurant. We love eating there because it's so good and so cheap! We usually get a large chicken rice noodle soup to share, then an order of 2 fresh spring rolls. That usually rounds out to less than $10!

Saturday morning we got up and got ready to watch the OSU Buckeyes play Kent State. We turned to the appropriate channel on AT&T U-verse at the game time and.... NOTHING. Todd called U-verse customer service and they said the game is blacked-out in California. Todd told them somebody made a mistake, because how could a game between two Ohio teams be blacked out in CA? We couldn't get anywhere with their customer service. By this time the first quarter was over, and we were stark raving mad at AT&T U-verse. So I asked Todd, "Can you just climb into the attic and re-attach the Dish Network wires?" We hadn't canceled our Dish yet. So Todd got a ladder and climbed into the attic. A few minutes later... we got the Buckeye game on! Triple arm-pump to me for suggesting it! The game was great as we beat Kent State 48-3. Then, two things happened. LSU lost to Kentucky in overtime. And Cal lost to Oregon State. We were ranked #3 prior to Saturday's games, with LSU ranked #1 and Cal ranked #2. So guess who is #1 in the BCS standings now??? THE Ohio State Buckeyes! After the game, we went to In-N-Out Burger to celebrate the win.

Saturday night we dressed up in 80's duds and headed on over to our friends Dean & Shona's place. It was a party for Dean's 40th birthday. We haven't seen them in ages, and it was so great to see them. Their backyard was transformed into an 80's extravaganza with old record covers and vinyl discs as decorations. They had catered Mexican dinner and it was yummy. Here are a few pics of the festivities.

After dinner and two kinds of cakes (chocolate ala-mode and carrot cake), Dean started the karaoke machine off by singing "Super Freak". Check out the mullet!

Then, Todd got up and sang Billy Ocean's "When the going gets tough, the tough gets going". Check out the 80's prom dress in the back!
We had so much fun with everyone at the party. Most of all it was just fun to spend time with friends. We left the party around 10:30 PM and was shocked to turn on the radio and find out that the Indians were STILL playing the Red Sox in the ALCS game 2, five hours later! It was the 11th inning and the Indians bats suddenly woke up! They scored 7 runs in the inning and beat the Red Sox 13-6! We got home in time to watch the end of the game, and Todd was super-excited!

On Sunday, our next door neighbors Annie & Fred invited us and their friend Andy over for lunch. Look at all the stuff Annie made!

We were excited to eat 2 types of dessert again! Can you believe it?

We hung out at Annie & Fred's for a while, playing with their cats, discussing coffee, and watch the Eagles Farewell I tour in Australia. Then we came home, and watched the Chargers beat the Raiders 28-14. LaDainian Tomlinson scored all four of the Chargers touchdowns! The Chargers are finally back on track! Then Todd got even more excited when his Cleveland Browns beat the Miami Dolphins 41-31. This was the GREATEST sports weekend ever!

Today I had lots of things to do for work, which I did. Then I went to the mailbox to get the mail... and guess what all I got??? Happy mail!

I got this photo necklace from Tara Whitney, as a gift! I love it and I told her so. It's so adorable!

AND, I got my print order from Shutterfly back! All the photos that Tara took of us are now printed out and ready for framing etc.

Yes, happy mail today!
