The Important Things in Life

A few wonderful things happened this weekend. 
Let's start with the most important one:

Gilmore Girls is on Netflix.  Don't panic.  Just go to the nearest smart TV, computer, laptop, tablet, etc...and watch until you feel like you can't take any more quick-witted humor and Emily Gilmore.

Okay so maybe that isn't the most important thing ever, however, my life is about to get very hermit-like because of that fact, so it's at least a little important. 

Also this weekend Trav and I went out to First Friday.  It's on Fremont street.  Basically they hold this thing on the first Friday of each month. We honestly weren't all that impressed. It was basically normal Fremont Street except you had to be 21 to enjoy.  You also had to wait in line to get in. They do have bands and such playing on the street, but they do that every weekend...so we didn't really get it.  
Instead of spending a lot of time out there at "First Friday" we decided to go grab some food and listen to an awesome little one man band.  I even brought my real camera. There is a noticeable difference in the pictures we took...

You don't even know how hard it is for us to make normal faces, but somehow, we pulled it off.  Honestly, Container Park might be my favorite part of downtown.  It might be totally new, but it's such a great addition to the area. We at the barbecue place and listened to the music while little kids (and adults) played with giant Legos and ran all over the play area.

The next morning a few of us from ROTC did some volunteering at Shade Tree.  It's a homeless/domestic violence shelter for Women.  Some of us helped organize their supply room with their clothing and toiletries, other served lunch, some did laundry...It was an overall, very rewarding day that I'm really glad I got to be a part of. But I think we need to talk to the guy on the end about looking like he's having a good time...

Well, I've got to get over to Travis's to go make some pumpkin cookies.  I've been craving them for a week, and although I'm not much of a baker, I think I can pull this off.

I love Fremont Street! Lame that First Friday wasn't anything special but it still sounds like fun. And bring me some of those pumpkin cookies...

PS. I nominated you for the Liebster Award on my blog today :)

Oh Katie you look just beautiful! I Trav must suit you. :-) You're lucky to live in a place where it's hard to tell a street fest from a regular weekend!!!! My dad says that life is more than just a parade, but a parade/street fest never hurts, right?
