Yesterday André & I celebrated our 7 year anniversary... wow! At times it seems like we've been together forever, and at other times I can't beleive it's already been 7 years. Of course, we've known eachother much longer than that - more like 9 years, since we met in '99.
So anyway, I took the afternoon off of work and we went to a little pub called the Firkin & Friar in Tucson - OMG. The food was so good - I mean, who knew that a grilled cheese & a toffee apple martini could make a girl so happy? lol I'm talking, grilled cheese that had cheese oozing out the sides with a crust of crispy parmesan on the outside. MMMM. The drinks were great too!
After André had me good and liquered up, he talked me into letting him buy me a new car (hahahaha!). We are getting rid of one of our gass guzzlers for much hipper ride... a Scion xB. Sweet!
A funny story: Today we went to gas it up for the first time, after putting over 400 miles on it (yes, in two days!)...22 dollars. OMG. That many miles would have cost us at LEAST 50 bucks before. André actually yelped with pure joy and danced a little jig at the gas pump, lmao!
Here is a picture of the car (taken yesterday...) See, the '08 model is much more curvy than the older ones (thank goodness!)
Well, I knew it would happen sooner or later... I'm officially a grown-up. No longer a 'twenty-something', but a THIRTY year old. Oh my goodness. It sounds so authoritative, lol.
We started out the day with breakfast at a little French café that was recommended by our great friend, Karla. Thanks Karla - we loved Ghini's! (pronounced like Guinea...)
Then we did some shopping (Christmas shopping, not birthday shopping, lol)...woo-hoo!! No pictures of that though, sorry :) Then stopped by the post office to pick up a gift that my mom sent - a beautiful pink tourmailine necklace. Thanks Mom!!
Then some friends came down (the Cauldwell Family) and we capped off the day with a nice dinner (pasta & salad) which Karla - thanks again!! - cooked and brought down. We watched the Biden-Palin debate and played Palin Bingo. That was fun - everytime Silly Sarah mentioned one of her catch-phrases (maveric, air space, geez, ummm...you get the picture) you got to mark a space off on your bingo card. The first person to get 5 in a row wins. André was the winner.
