On Friday night we went to the Rangers game. Now, I'm no great sports fan, but I must say it wasn't bad. Had a couple tasty beers and some really fattening food (pizza AND a funnel cake), and there was even a fireworks show after the game! I literally understood not one thing that happened...but I know Arsen had a great time.
Arsen's sister Lena stopped by with her family to see the house on Sunday, and she also brought us a gorgeous set of dishes! A couple of nights later his brother Armen came by with his family...and brought Arsen a grill! Personally I was super excited about the dishes, but Arsen was definitely a little more into the grill.
The three day weekend seemed to make the work week harder than usual, but thankfully, it's the weekend again! Tonight Arsen decided to fire up the grill for the first time. I took on the task of chopping up the veggies and whatnot, and he did basically everything else.
It was pretty nice to spend a good part of the evening in the backyard....it was really the first time we've spent much time out there. I basically sat in a chair and had a drink while Arsen did all the work. And Addie played for approximately two minutes before she exhausted herself. She doesn't really care for the heat.
I must say the finished product was amazing. I honestly think it was the best steak I've ever had. We did learn that baked potatoes take ages to make on a grill, so we'll have to make some adjustments next time. But overall I would say it was a success!!
So I would say we've had a pretty successful summer so far. And Arsen just informed me that it is 9 weeks to the wedding, so the rest of the summer will basically consist of wedding planning. Like always, I've been a huge slacker and left a ton of stuff to the last minute. I don't think I could do it any other way!
