Wedding Weekend

Ross and I spent yesterday and today driving back and forth from Thibodaux to Plaquemine, Louisiana to be a part of our friends’ wedding. The drive is about an hour and a half one-way which had us on the road for about 6 hours for the past two days.


The drive was well worth it in the end. We got to spend time with friends, including the bride and groom, who we don’t get the chance to see very often. We also got to dress up together, which we don’t often get the chance to do. We clean up rather nice, if I do say so myself.


Once we got there, we were able to spend time with many people we care about, which made the long drives worth-while. Even the drives themselves weren’t that bad because we were able to use that one-on-one time to catch each other up on our weeks over some music.

Then and Now

I remember going on my first date with my boyfriend well over a year ago. I gave him props for knowing exactly where I would want to go without even having to ask… a sushi restaurant. Since then, we have spent many lunch and dinner dates at our favorite local sushi place, Geaux Fish. We decided to call this long week a wrap by stopping there today for some sushi rolls. To our surprise, our hostess seated us at the very table we sat at for our first date. After laughing over the irony, we got to reminisce on how much has changed since our first date. We also realized that there are some things that may never change, like how we ALWAYS seem to end up at the same sushi restaurant (but hey, who’s complaining). 

After a very satisfying meal, we headed back to Ross’ apartment to play some Mario Kart because, you know, what else are a couple of 20-something-year-olds going to do on a Friday night, right?
