The weekend, so far………

Let's start with thursday. After work there was kickball, we didn't win but our team always has a really good time. After the game a group of us went to a free screening of the new Mark Wahlberg movie Max Payne. This movie was based off of a popular video game. It was fairly entertaining. I wouldn't ever see it again and I shouldn't have had high hopes, even though they weren't really that high to begin with, but the friends that i went with made it all worth wile. 

Friday was nice. I hung out with my Cali soul mate after work. We went shopping, ate a really good dinner, and then relaxed at his house until we went to the Softee show at the Brick. That was a really REALLY good time. There were so many happy friendly faces and Mrs. Greenleaf and I danced in front of the stage to the last two songs. After the late show was an afterparty downtown. Again, a really fabulous time. It was at Mimi's friend's apartment which has a breathtaking view of the city. We all danced on the rooftop until the wee hours of the morning and I didn't actually crawl into bed until 4am. Whew!

Saturday I woke up late. You can imagine why. My friend Mandy drove in from Branson and we went to Bret's house for a Thanksgiving dinner. (It was originally supposed to be at Rachel's but the water main to her house broke, what an awful way to start the weekend, hopefully they've fixed it by now.) Since almost all of my Kansas City friends will be going home for the holiday's Rachel thought it would be a good/fun idea to have Thanksgiving early. It was amazing. There were 14 people there and everyone brought a dish. We had turkey (of course), cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, creamed corn, stuffing, mac'n'cheese, cheesy potatoes, rolls, two kinds of pies, and strawberry shortcake. Plus a variety of hors d'oeuvres. It was a really nice day. We all went around the room and said what we were thankful for. There were moments where you could tell it meant a lot to all of us to have such warm wonderful friends. I couldn't have asked for better friends.
