Too much of a good thing?

Yesterday Joey and I attended a chili cook off at Danica and Richy’s.  We had a lot of fun.  Danica and Richy had custom mugs made for everyone who entered.  There were 8 different pots of chili and all were pretty good.  We spent a little over an hour just going around filling our bowls and then voting on the one we liked best.  Joey and I didn’t win, but we did get some votes.  I personally think that ours was one of the best. We then sat around talking with Elizabeth, Matt and Richy.  It was also great to participate in a “couples” thing with Joey.  It’s nice to have someone to do these things with.  We pooped out pretty early, I think due to eating so much hearty food so quickly.  I’m not sure my stomach is going to be incredibly pleased with me, but I’m sure it was worth it.  I am posting pics of our mugs and click here for our chili recipe.

Also yesterday morning I met up with some friends for breakfast.  Julie was in town for her sister’s wedding, so it was nice getting to talk to her.  We stayed at the restaurant talking for about an hour and a half and then went out to the parking lot where I tried to take a picture of us by setting the timer on my camera and putting it on top of the car.  The pictures of our first five attempts show how well this did not work, but the 6th picture was acceptable to us all.  Plus, it was great just hanging out with the girls like we did in high school.

Oops didn't set the timer correctly

Timer, check...Zooming in so we can see who's in the picture, Nope

Well, got the zoom right, but forgot to center ourselves

Everything is great, except our eyes aren't open.

    Nice pic, finally! 😉 So glad you got to renew your HS friendship, as well as begin a new “coupledom” by doing things with other couples.
    Yes, we will have to get together sometime…possibly over a weekend? As long as there’s room for us to crash someplace, we are game! Oh, and I’ll have to try your chili recipe, although we both know that I’m not too great at following recipes! Can’t wait to try it!
