Weekend Update

Howdy!
Our weekend was nice. 
Our weekend sort of started on Thursday when we went out with some of Amy's friends/co-workers to Scholz Garten for happy hour.  They're a nice, entertaining group of folks.  I had a good time.  We stopped at Torchy's on the way home for tacos.  Friday night we didn't do a whole lot.  Amy worked late, and I exercised and took the dog for a walk.  We were both pretty tired (and allergyish), and I think after Amy got home we ate dinner and just sort of did some reading and went to bed. 
On Saturday we got up and Amy made us eggs.  Then I went to the store and did some grocery shopping while Amy worked at the house.  In the afternoon I went on a bike ride over to Ryan and Jamie's house and hung out there for a little while before pedaling home.  Amy went to the gym at some point.  We ate soup for dinner.  We watched an Aziz Ansari comedy special on Netflix.  Not every joke was a gem, but he had some stuff that made me laugh pretty hard. 
Amy said Aziz just reminded her of some funny guy who might sit next to you in school.  This made me think that boys were probably a lot funnier around Amy in high school than than what I experienced.  I'm not sure guys were as motivated to be as entertaining around the smartass 6'6" dude as they were around the really cute blonde girl.
On Sunday we got up and had breakfast at Magnolia Cafe.  The food was good, and it was sort of fun to be out early in the morning on a Sunday.  Afterward we picked up Cassidy and took her for a walk over at Twin Falls.  There's absolutely no water down along that creek right now, but it was still a pretty walk, and nice, cool weather.  Afterward we took care of a few things around the house, and then I went for another bike ride.  I rode down to Amy's office just to try to plot out a convenient, safe route that she can take in case she ever wants to ride in on a weekend or something.
Sunday night Ryan and Jamie came over for dinner.  It was really nice to have them.  Amy made some chicken white chili with cornbread, and chocolate pie for dessert.  Jamie brought a salad.  The food was really good, and it was nice to have a chance to just relax and talk.  At one point the conversation turned to late 80's era professional wrestling.  My brother still has an impressive (alarming?) command of the wrestlers of that era.
And that was pretty much the weekend!  It was a nice one, but it went by a little fast.  Amy's busy, but her work sounds interesting (she has to keep her projects confidential, but some of them have already been in the news).
Hope everyone's week is off to a good start.
