Still Around, Not Traveling

I think I posted more last week when I was traveling in and out of town than I have since I got back. I've been a little busy and spending a little less time on the computer. I'll make up for that now.

Actually not a whole lot to report on these days. The long weekend was nice. We went for dinner Saturday night for Chris' birthday. I took him to a restaurant downtown with a very eclectic menu and great ambiance. It was recommended by a co-worker (her son works there too), plus it was one of those places I've always wanted to try. Also on the pricey side, so special occasions only. It was really good. Chris got lamb shank and I got chicken breast wrapped in phyllo (a pastry thing) and stuffed with brie and peaches. All was very good, and very filling!

Sunday we spent most of the day in Bardstown with Chris' family. It was nice to spend a little time with them and catch up. Plus I got to see his sister's engagement ring, which is beautiful!!

Monday morning I had adoration at 6am, then Chris and I met at the Arboretum for a walk just after 7am. We walked for about an hour and then went back to his house for breakfast. He came to my house later that evening for dinner. I made my Aunt Janet's Russian Chicken, which is a family favorite.

That's been about it for us. We have a class this coming Saturday, our last marriage requirement with the diocese. It's called "God's Plan for a Faith Filled Marriage." I have been told that it is based on John Paul II's Theology of the Body speeches. I'll post more on that after the class.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful fun filled weekend. I hope Chris had a wonderful birthday.

  2. I think he did. I also gave him two DVDs for his birthday present: A Man for all Seasons (which he had once told me was one of his favorite movies) and A Lion in Winter, which I have been told is an excellent movie. (I saw it on stage years ago and it was pretty bad, but I'm willing to watch it again with Katherine Hepburn.)
