I took Trevor to a Brand New / Modest Mouse concert. I had forgotten what non-UT concerts were like. We got free soda, for promising not to drink and had just as much fun people watching as listening to the music. People are weird.
Back to my summer theme, "Mistakes Have Been Made", I went running Saturday morning. I felt really good the first 3.5 miles. Then the 94 degree weather hit me and I was on the verge of heat exhaustion for the rest of it.
The parentals escorted Kevin and myself to Krempy's house so he and Aaron could do the PH ordination (which is still questionable in my books, seeing as his records technically belong to the RI Stake still). We took a dive in the pool and ate some delicious mashed potatoes.
Sunday at the Singles Ward, I met this new girl, America who wants to be friends with me. She kept sitting next to me and complimenting me on stuff, but never laughed at any of my patriotic puns, so it might be a deal breaker.

My friend from work, Samira, brought her kid Tameem and niece Sophia to our house to pick some blubes. They were actually more interested in the tire swing (which they couldn't get on alone) and the tree house (same). But since everyone went to Friendly's that night, they had no one to help them until Lavinia got home from a friend's house.
It was elliptical woman's last day at work on Friday, so everyone brought in breakfast. I profited. It was delicious. I think I was full for the rest of the day.
The blessed mother took Kevin, Lavinia, Isabelle, and I shopping with her. But only after some serious math confusion. When is she taking that class again? Yikes. I got a few things I needed for school, Kevin got a few things for mission, the girls usually get stuff just 'cuz. We ate at Sarku Japan, which seemed like the real world version of subtraction soup to me and Kev.
I made 24-hour flat bread. It took 24 hours. And shopping took longer than expected, so it was left rising too long and reversed the process, leaving it flat. Still tasted pretty good, though.
And I read the Ascension trilogy by Jennifer Nielson on Sunday. I'm not a huge fan of the writing style, but the story is okay, and the kid is sassy as heck. Naturally, I loved it. I was pleasantly surprised several times by his salty retorts. #goals

Then whatever letter it falls off at starts the name of your future spouse?
That's how this started.
