New Pot

I bought a new pot for my plant yesterday. This is the second plant that I've grown from my large, mother of a plant.

Yesterday was the conference in Owatonna and I think it lived up to last year's experience. White glasses, "Redrum", Circle of Death, a microphone, the Bible, wounds, and a margarita in bed. What a good time. This picture is during happy hour. We moved all of our tables together - can you tell what Darin thinks they look like?

Cookout #1

Yesterday we had our first cookout of the season! It's been a long, hard winter, but I think it may finally be close to being over. Patrick and I grilled tuna steaks (well, actually Lagle grilled them for us). Patrick and I also went on a really long walk yesterday and played on some swings in a park. It's great to be able to wear sandals again! (I hope I'm not jinxing myself by saying all of this)

Two of My Faves

Last night we had a party at the Second Year House to celebrate more thesis proposals. We played two of my favorite games - cirlce of death and flip cup. This made for an excellent night. The night also ended in Legion karaoke which also added to its excellence.
PS The weather is beautiful today!!!!!!

Happy St. Patrick's!

Yesterday was a happy St. Patrick's Day. Bekah, Karl, and Max are visiting us so we all went to St. Peter for the St. Patrick's Day parade. First, we stopped into Patrick's pub and got a window seat where we could drink green beer and watch the parade. They also had free Irish stew! We all took shifts going outside to watch the parade (which consisted of local business owners throwing candy at you) so that we wouldn't lose our prime location. Around 7, we went back to Mankato and went to the Legion. We drank some more and took a picture with Mike, the bartender, as you can see. Next we Pub500 where we met up with my classmates. We sang and danced and of course, drank some more. We ended the night at Buffalo Wild Wings. Patrick order two dozen wings for some reason and Max had a rough time in the bathroom. Everyone is still asleep even though our night ended pretty early (around 1am). I guess this is indicative of a good St. Patty's Day.

New Rug

I've been feeling sick these past couple of days (thanks, Ryan). Patrick's in New York this weekend so I've been trying to be productive before Bekah, Karl, and Max visit us next week. I finally got around to buying a new bathroom rug. Ryan left us some money to replace all of the bathroom accessories that he destroyed. :)

My Little Brother

Ryan is up visiting for a few days. Last night we went to the Legion for karaoke and to celebrate Mike's (the bartender) birthday. Ryan and I sang "Garden Party" and "Enter Sandman" together. Then he explosively vomited all over my bathroom and carpet.

I like Candy Cigarettes

We went over to Catherine's (my coworker) tonight and played Boxers or Briefs which is like an extra fun version of Apples to Apples. "I wish my mommy would have named me Ralphy."

So like I said, we went to a conference in Chicago. This explains my lack of picture posting over the last few days. In order to make up for this, I have decided to post multiple pictures today.
This first one is of a singer at a Blues Club we went to the first night. He was really good and I wanted to buy his CD, but it was $20.
This is a picture of me "explaining" my poster to Andy at the conference.
We all went and saw the big bean in Millennium Park. I remember doing this almost four years ago with Nick, Joe, and the Zaids. :)
This is a picture from the 95th floor of the Hancock Building. We went just before sunset and had martinis. It was a beautiful view.
