Well, I'm back! We didn't got far but we definitely had some fun this weekend. On the spur of the moment, we decided to stay at a hotel and get away from the house for a night. We had been invited to a local Anime convention by one of Jesse's co-workers. We had been looking for an anime convention for awhile since moving up here and had turned up empty handed. It was a very small con. They had about 300 maybe 400 people show up. They had some vendors and artist selling their wares. They had a HUGE section full of video games and board games. That was pretty fun. I got to plan on the Sega Dreamcast. We hung out with Jesse's co-worker and his wife. They were fun but we're doing the parent thing. Hanging out at the con because their daughter was there. They weren't having fun but at least they are supportive. I didn't buy anything. Jess bought a Gundam (robot) model. He really likes them and they keep him entertained.
I did my hair that day and I was really happy with the way it turned out. At first it reminded me of Marylin Monroe. Then as it settled into place, I thought it kinda looked like River Song's hair looks like.Please excuse my PJs, if I don't take a photo early enough I forget to do it later. What do you guys think?
After we hung out for a few hours we checked into our hotel room and it was pretty awesome. Did I mention it had a two person spa? I LOVE spas. When we were living in Orange County, we would go to this place called Neptune's Lagoon. They would rent rooms with full-sized spas by the hours. At first I was kinda weary of the place because it was in a questionable neighborhood. It turned out to be really fun and relaxing. The place even sold alcohol and snacks. We would take a trip there about twice a month. It was great. I wish there was a place like that around here. Anyways, back to the room. It was really nice it had a GIANT four post bed that we had to use a footstool to get into. Yeah it was a good foot higher than any bed I've ever slept on. It was pretty awesome.
The car seems to be doing better. We bought a new battery and tried to change out the terminal. It didn't go so well so we're going to wait until my father-in-law comes over this weekend to look at it. They are taking us to dinner Saturday to celebrate my birthday. Yup, I'm another year closer to 30. I honestly don't feel as old as I am. Everyone thinks that the hubster is older than I am by a few years so that's a plus for me. I just need to keep up on my face cream rgiments. They're not really regiments just a habit I need to stick too.
Jess got me a sock knitting book I had on my Amazon wish list. It's pretty nice except all the instructions are on charts and I can't read charts. Guess I have another thing to learn.
I've madly been working on Christmas presents for the family. I've got to make my mother-in-law a hat and make a few stockings. I finished making a couple of stockings for Jesse and I. I still need to make Ridley's. Ridley is doing a lot better now. His teeth and gums look much healthier and his stinky breath is back down to normal cat breath.
Here's another thing I've been working on. Every once in a while, I like to do some embroidery to keep up my skills. I've been wanting to make a traditional Mexican tablecloth but I need to brush up on my cross stitching skills. It's been a few years. I'm hoping I can get another one of these made in a couple of weeks.
I'm dying my hair today and hopefully cleaning up the guest room. My in-laws are staying overnight on Saturday so I won't have to cook at all. It's nice when they come over because they usually pay for food. Even if we insist they still treat us like children.
Here's a gratuitous photo of Ridley since he's really good at posing cutely.
I hope everyone is having a great week.
