comings and goings and eatings

i *heart* Cupprimo

The past week has been beyond crazy.  Chris came out to visit and we worked on a program that will help me shave months off of my thesis.  In addition, we ate at some tasty restaurants, made some delicious dinners, and generally hung out all over Austin.  And while normally, a visitor isn't cause for that much chaos, my brother-in-law moved in with us on Wednesday.  Colby got him a job at his company and he started today, so this weekend was filled with rearranging the house, sacrificing our guest bedroom, and trying to fit in some Halloween activities as well.  Colby and I dressed up as Juno MacGuff and Paulie Bleeker, since the only thing I needed to buy to complete my outfit was a bottle of Sunny D.  By the way, Sunny D is disgusting.  Six year old me had some pretty terrible taste in beverages.  Colby got some sweet yellow gym shorts out of the deal, which I've been wearing since Saturday night since they're actually way too short for him. ;)
