Recap with pictures

A couple weeks ago, my friend Kindra got engaged in this restaurant.

I got to be the wingman a.k.a sneaky. I got into his truck bed (while they were in the restaurant) and put a gift basket in the front seat, a sign on the windshield, and took a gift to the waiter in the back of the restaurant.
Then I waited behind this potted plant to try and get pictures when they walked out.
my view.
the weather.

the car full of elderly people that left to make my view wide open! (no discrimination here, just the facts.)

Wide open spaces from the restaurant to his truck.

And I blew it. I was borrowing a lens and didn't have it ready when they came out... Okay the real thing is that I did have it ready but discovered 30 seconds before they came out that it could go infinitely closer so I didn't have it focused on them. Sad day but next time I get to be sneaky, I'll be ready.

Happy Couple.

Another friend, Katelyn, got engaged the next day but unfortunately I don't have any pictures of that.

Next weekend, I went to Milwaukee because I wanted to.

Adam really likes curling. (excuse the lighting, had it on the wrong setting and didn't feel like editing it.)
There was a chilispiel that weekend. Normally games for curling are called bonspiels but this one was just for fun and was complete with a chili cook-off. What says north more than this?

Best of three. So sometimes I played this game instead of watching every moment.

Had to get the little silver ball on the little tracks numbered 1-100. I got as far as 30 haha It was hard to maneuver it all the way past that. You have to turn it upside down, side ways, diagonal to get it to go where it's supposed to.

What would a chilispiel be without a muffin tin filled with sample cups of each chili?

Ended the weekend with the Superbowl. Go Giants!

All sounds fun. Sorry you drove all that way and didn't get a good pic of Kindra. Ugh!

I think you should do a project off Pinterest and join my Pinterest Party this Friday!
