Chillin' in the Mitten01.13.2011
Hey everyone! IÂm writing this blog from my roommateÂs house in Michigan! Emily and I drove up to the ÂMittenÂ Wednesday afternoon and have been spending time with the lovely Lauren and her family. Wednesday night ate a home-cooked meal at the Berndt household and spent some time catching up. It had been almost a month since we had seen each other! ThatÂs kind of a strange feeling since we live together at school and see each other every day.
Yesterday we exchanged one of LaurenÂs Christmas presents at Target and then headed to pick up LaurenÂs parking permit. Then, we headed back to LaurenÂs house and watched ÂNew in Town,Â which is really funny. ItÂs kind of a joke between us because I have a habit of speaking in a Minnesotan accent, which I started after I saw the movie the first time.
Today weÂre going to get manicures and pedicures and going to dinner at a Japanese steakhouse! Those who know me know IÂm not too keen on feetÂmine or other peopleÂsÂso IÂll probably pass on the pedi and just get my fingernails done.
And then, tomorrow, itÂs back to UD! Finally! It feels like itÂs been forever, and itÂs going to be really great to get back. So, for now IÂm signing off from Âthe MittenÂ and tomorrow IÂll be back in the good old O-H-I-O!
