[almost] the best day of my life.

yesterday was a special day. it's the day my mom and gina and i got to pick niki up from the airport after being in europe for two months, gallivanting away. so i took the day off work to prepare for this momentous occasion. i ran [a rather difficult, for some reason] 4 miles, showered, and ate some einstein's bagels. i heart einstein's. cinnamon sugar bagel with shmear and a second one with honey butter please. thanks.
yummmy to my tummmy.
my madre is so cute.
gina hearts her post-wisdom-teeth-extraction meds.

after we got ready, napped a bit, read a bit, we left for the slc. we went to some mall, which is where all the fun began. gina and i ran off to victoria's secret to take advantage of the 5 for $25 deal, as we do annually. after we were leaving the store with our goodies, the alarm went off. one of the workers went through gina's bag and found a security thing on it. she got it removed and then we went to leave again when the alarm went off again! there were two more security things in gina's bag but she was mainly bugged that the girl had to keep 'rummaging through my intimates'. fer rills.
then we went to california pizza kitchen because we were starving little children who were starting to growl and snap instead of smile and laugh. we walked in to behold that 90% of the male waiters were extremely attractive. like it was so noticeable we decided it had to be part of the criteria of being a waiter there. especially this strapping young man.
yeah. i went there. i dont know if he noticed me staring at him the entire time that i was there but. oh man. his hair
i wanted to touch it. really. bad.

anyway, we ordered and then waited for the food. our conversation:
g "if you're going to document something on your effing blog, it should be scrabble." 
[dont worry, she said effing, not the actual word]
a "what i'm documenting is that quote."
g "what quote?"
a "what you just said."
g "that's not a quote. it's my life."
a ...laughing...
g "dont quote that!"
we shared a lettuce wrap[so good] because gina had never had one and i really wanted it. then gina got some ravioli and i went for something new, the buffalo chicken pizza. pretty good fo sho.
carrots and celery on my pizza. i be healthy.

gina had one ravioli left that she didnt want to eat because she was full but our waiter, cliff, was throwing a hilarious fit because she wouldnt just eat it. so he took her plate and put the single piece of ravioli in a plastic cup container. it was so funny.
cliff thought we were hilarious and crazy. first we didnt want soda, just water. then gina wouldnt finish her food. then we didnt want any dessert. so of course we had to get a [few] picture[s] with him.
middle pic: cliff "this is my girlfriend of the day." not awkward at all.

we then went to nordstrom to meet up with momma where she was finding makeup so we looked at shoes and purses and hats and accessories when we realized... crap! niki's flight lands in 40 minutes! so we ran to the car and booked it [maybe with a detour or two] to the airport. gina and i ran in while mom parked the car. niki thought it was just me coming so we were excited to surprise her with all three of us. we even made signs.
here i am. waiting like a puppy dog for niki to come out. gina and mom were off to the side so niki wouldnt see them.

so we got there in time and waited for her to walk out. and waited. and waited. and waited.
after about 30 minutes or so of waiting, my mom gets a call from niki saying she's still in san francisco where she was supposed to change flights! what?! oh dont worry, she had tried calling me but i left my phone in provo. did i not mention that before? yeah, totally the worst day to leave it there. boo.
so not only did our surprise plan not really work out but i have to wait until after work to see her now! i guess if i go to bed it will go by faster...
but yeah. that was my day. hemp necklace.

Haha! I love that you randomly took a picture of an attractive man. Creeper. In a good way. If there is a good way.

Do you realize that during the month of June 2009, you only posted 4 times. However, June 2010 was 33 times...that's legendary. According to my calculations, that's an 825% increase in blog postings.

you would get pics with a waiter and then creeper pics of a waiter. also, gina rocks. "it's not a quote; it's my life!"
