Trip to Spokane

Due to the passing of his aunt, Ryan went home to Spokane for the weekend. Although the trip was on account of a sad occasion, it was a great opportunity for Ryan to spend time with his family. Since the trip was so last minute, Ryan went alone while I stayed behind and worked (lucky me, right?).

Ryan had a fun time just getting to spend time with his family. He was especially excited that his nephew and niece were there. Between family, friends, and sports, I'm pretty sure Ryan didn't even have time to miss me. ;-) Oh well...hopefully I can go next time!

Chick Flick

This weekend both Ryan and my dad were out of town so my Mom and I decided it would be the perfect time to see "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2." We saw the movie on Friday night and spent the rest of the weekend eating, shopping, and just hanging out. The movie was a complete "chick flick" and TOTALLY cheesy and I loved it! If you saw the first one and thought it was cheesy, be prepared for some major cheese in the second one! Overall, it was fun just getting to hang out with my Mom! Thanks for the great weekend Mom!

Yesterday was a special "Intel Family Day" at the Arizona Science Center so Ryan got 4 free admissions to the museum. Since Ryan had never been and I haven't been in years, we decided we would be crazy not to take advantage of the free trip. So we recruited a couple of our friends and made a day of it. We started the afternoon off going to a little Mexican restaurant in the ghetto of downtown Phoenix. The people were interesting, the restaurant was totally unsanitary, and the food was great (thanks for suggesting it James)!

After leaving the restaurant, we headed over to the science center for an afternoon of science. When we got to the center our friend Tiffany worked her magic and got us free admittance to the new "Grossology" exhibit. The exhibit was all about burping, pooping, and all of the other gross things the human body does. You can imagine what a fun time we had with that! One of the booths focused solely on the different smells of the human body. It consisted of four different pumps that squirted out different smells. Our job was to guess which smell went with which body part. In case you can't tell from the picture below, the four body parts were: mouth, armpits, feet, and anus. Yeah, that's right, we were the lucky ones who got to smell the anus! Let's just say that the exhibit definitely lived up to it's name and was extremely GROSS!! All in all, the afternoon was a total blast and you better believe we'll be hitting it up again in the near future!

Mexican Fiesta

Last night our friends threw a Mexican Fiesta at their house. As part of the party, they decided to hold a contest to see who had the best Mexican outfit. While everyone didn't dress up for the party, here is a picture of some of us who did.

Living in Mesa, Ryan and I had plenty of resources to do some in-depth research as to what the modern-day hispanic really wears. People were pretty shocked at how "authentic" I really looked. The pictures really don't do my whole "look" justice, but I guess it pays to look multiracial!

Me & Celeste

On our way to the party we had to stop by El Pollo Loco" to get some beans. It was so embarrassing having to walk in the restaurant dressed like we were. The sad thing is that I don't think anyone realized that we were "dressed up." (That is, until I started talking and didn't have any accent.)

The night was full of Pinata's, great Mexican food, and people trying all kinds of weird treats they thought would be a good addition to the party!

Once again, thanks for the great time Devyn and Celeste! You know how to throw a rockin' fiesta! Just let us know when you're throwing the asian-themed party and I'll be sure to look "authentic."
