Tis' the Season
Tis' the Season....For NINTENDO Wii!! Yes, we too gave into the new Christmas Fad of the Nintendo Wii. However, in a very different way. We were sent to Target at 8am this morning to buy a Wii for a relative, (I can't say who....you never know who will read this!) and we decided to buy one for ourselves as well! But, we are going to hold onto it for a while, until people get desperate to buy a Wii for their kids....and hopefully make a little money when we sell it! Nintendo has already said that they are not going to be able to keep up with the demand this season, so we figure that we might make quite a profit! If any of you are desperate, you know who to come to! (For a pretty penny!) It is our first investment as a couple, and it will probably be a pretty good one...we'll let you know! If you haven't heard of it or played it, it is quite entertaining! The controllers are wireless, and it is completely interactive. You can bowl, golf, play tennis, all while having to actually swing the controller how you want the ball to go! This game console has been used lately to help senior citizen's stay healthy-supposively it is better on their joints than regular exersize! Crazy huh!?
We have had a fun weekend. On Friday we did quite a bit actually. Our first activity was the exchage of cash. What?!!? It was honest cash, no worries! It was funny though....we had about $1500 in CASH at our house, and Amanda and Kevin were at a restaraunt in Orem and had our payment for the month of laundry duty with them. So, I loaded the cashola in my purse(which was a little obvious!) and we headed up to meet them. We passed the cash to them, they passed a check to us...but to anyone observing, it probably looked a LITTLE suspicios! After the exchange, we went to California Pizza Kitchen for some Tortilla soup. Yum Yum! It is in the University Mall, so of course, we went shopping afterwords! Cody is/was/will be forever on a mission to get me to wear color. Ever since hair school, I have been a black and white woman! Anyway, he really would love it if I would expand my horizons a little, so I told him that if he picks out clothes for me to buy, I would wear them! By the end of the night I had an ADORABLE outfit from PACSUN. I don't normally shop there, but it is really cute...and it has color, so it made us both happy!
Following shopping, we went to our new favorite dessert place....Pudding on the Rice! There are tons of different flavors of sugary, yummy rice pudding from marshmallow(cod'y fave) to pumpkin pie, to amaretto(my fave). It is such a fun treat that we have learned to love!
Saturday was Yule's (cody's grandpa) birthday! 80 year old and going strong! We went to his birthday party at Riverside country club and had a great time. A few of his siblings were there, and it was fun to hear stories of when he was younger. They told about how he would play hide and seek with his younger sister, but he would hide her in places that she couldn't get out of and then never go and Seek her! Sad! They also told about how he loved to get his back scratched. He would say, "I will tell you a story if you scratch my back while I am doing it". Then he would tell a story that never ended! He is really funny, a ton of personality in that amazing man. We ate some absolutely delisious halibut, but best of all was the CAKE! Straight from Magelby's! Mmmmm! MMMM! I could die eating that cake, if you have never tried it, I highly suggest to do so...soon!
