ahhhh, palm springs. although i was there for a culligan convention, i still enjoyed every bit of 95 degree weather.

wednesday, april 29

out at brocach with reina, bree and jason. i was pretty bummed about missing chris koza but knew that staying out late and attempting to function in palm springs the next day for work would not have been good. smart jen - 1, fun jen - 0.

tuesday, april 28

ok, this wasn't at 7:30 but i forgot to take a pic then. jesi and i were twins at work, so i deem that blog worthy. we were both wearing mary janes even!

sunday, april 26

i am addicted to being erica. it's a great show, both heartwarming and funny. somehow the message gets right to me every time. it's refreshing to watch a show that i can relate to and actually learn something from.

saturday, april 25

mexican for dinner!

thursday, april 23

piling all my stuff on jason's counter.

wednesday, april 22

it's nice to go out to dinner after work sometimes, so jason and i went to sushi murimato. the food was great, as usual, including the green tea creme brulee.

monday, april 19

jason hearts his new iphone.

sunday, april 19

stomp at the overture center with jason. it was an amazing performance and a great way to spend a sunday evening. here's a view of the capital.

saturday, april 18

after test driving cars in oconomowoc, jason and i visited this little bakery/sandwich shop. his burger was amazing; my egg salad delicious. i would drive back just to eat there!

friday, april 17

i love you man. hilarious! jason and i kept trying to quote it right after we left but were totally screwing up the lines. guess we'll have to rent it! (yay)

thursday, april 16

just figuring out what to eat for dinner. hmm....condiments or beverages?

wednesday, april 15

riding the escalator to our seats. just like last season but sans doritos! shannon, becky, adrian and i had the best time at the game. margaritas and beer flowed like wine. ok, shannon and i had one margarita each, but they were strong.

sunday, april 12

relaxing at home on the computer. martin & osa gave out free instyles when pam and i were shopping there. :)

saturday, april 11

visiting my parents in oshkosh. they're still watching quincy for my brother, so we got some good laughs off his crazy antics. i'm pretty sure poor willie is counting down the days until quincy leaves.

thursday, april 9

jason was over at my place, and we were making dinner. i'd just been to the grocery store and purchased the best berries, which i added to our plates. blackberries are one of the best parts of summer.

tuesday, april 7

i don't even know how this exactly happened; i blame the wine. :) becky and shannon came over for girls night. it was my first attempt at mussels, and they turned out delicious!

Thursday, April 16

sunday, april 5

so, this wasn't 7:30 but i forgot to take a pic then. here's pam and i grabbing coffee at intelligentsia before i departed for madtown. didn't do much after i got home. just relaxed and recovered.

saturday, april 4

lunch with leila, sara and pam at feast. after dinner we went to wells on wells and met up with lee, pam's friends and sara's friends. none of us had seen lee since high school! i wish i was moving to chicago so we could all spend more time together....

friday, april 3

off to visit pam, leila, sara and lee in chicago. i caught a ride down with ann and her friends.

thursday, april 2

well, this night didn't turn out as planned. i was supposed to met mel at the old fashioned for happy hour, but i accidentally left my wallet at work. i didn't feel comfortable leaving it there overnight, so jason and i headed to my office. those two windows to the left of the doors are my and erin's office.

tuesday, march 31

met up with ericka at pedros to enjoy some mugaritas. i hadn't seen her in so long, and it was great to catch up!

monday, march 30

relaxing and reading at home. a good way to spend an evening.

sunday, march 29

our office had a shoe & paper explosion. usually i keep up with the papers, but it had been a while. i finally organized it this evening, and it felt really great.

Tuesday, March 31

friday, march 27

fish fry! i couldn't believe how much jason and shane ate. they just kept going and going and going. i don't blame them though. the food is so very good.

thursday, march 26

relaxing on the couch and watching tv with jason.

tuesday, march 24 & wednesday, march 25

forgot to take pics, but i remember what i was doing. jason's brother was in town for a conference, so we helped get him addicted to the tv show bones. i love the way the characters interact with each other. the show's funny, heartwarming, frightening and suspenseful all in one.

monday, march 23

jason and i heart bananagrams! i'd heart it more if i actually won once in a while....or just once.

sunday, march 22

saturday, march 21

this photo nicely sums up jason's bday celebration in milwaukee. adding more won't even do it justice.

friday, march 20

i went over to autumns after work to hang out, eat some pizza and watch some bball. almost every photo of penny is blurry b/c she moves way to fast. the best was when she ran at the couch full speed and tried to leap up onto it, only to slam into the front of the couch. and she did that over and over and over. lol.

thursday, march 19

jason's bday! we celebrated his 29th at magnus. yum. :)

wednesday, march 18

robyn and i chilled on the couch this evening. a book for me, work for her. i think she got the raw end of that deal. she laughed at this photo because it looks like she doesn't have a neck. oops.

tuesday, march 17

what do you do on st. patty's day? you drink guiness! robyn and i headed to brocach and had a few. she's not irish, but she faked it well!

monday, march 16

ok, this wasn't exactly 7:30, but it encompasses my day. i got to have lunch with pam! my dad hadn't seen her since college, and he kept telling me she needed to meet a nice guy. awww....

sunday, march 15

jason's bball team had their end of year banquet. here the senior girls said a little bit about all the coaches. they got a kick out of jason driving a minivan in the winter and were wondering where his sports car went!

saturday, march 14

my family are all big fans of the food network, especially diners, drive-ins & dives. while visiting paul, we decided to hit up the town talk diner. (it was on the show.) delicious! i kept stealing jason's mac & cheese. it was soooooo good!

Saturday, March 21

friday, march 13

quincy. so adorable, yet so slobbery. i love watching him chase after his ball because it bounces everywhere and he's constantly hitting it with his nose and causing it to fly across the room.

Friday, March 20

thursday, march 12

off to minneapolis for the weekend to visit the brother. my dad came down from oshkosh that afternoon and picked jason and me up. we stopped at buffalo phils in the dells to eat before venturing across the great mississippi.

tuesday, march 10

in the kitchen....baking of course. i made black and white cookies for my coworker jesi's bday. my first time making them, but they were delicious!

sunday, march 8

all basketball season, i patiently waited for the uw/iu home game. and of course it was the last home game of the season; a season which iu had been playing horribly. i still cheered on my hoosiers and at one point got really excited that i heard other people clapping. i looked around quickly to see my fellow hoosier fans, only to realize that the people clapping were the players on the iu bench. i guess that tells you how many iu fans were in the kohl center that night.... above is a pic of autumn in her courtside seat.

saturday, march 7

there's this great laotian restaurant right by the barrymore theatre. we tried it for the first time and loved the food. the coloring in the place was neat and the picture behind jason had vivid colored of parasoles. after dinner, jason and i saw slumdog millionaire. great flick but gut wrenching in parts.

thursday, march 5

my favorite girl scout cookies. :) enjoyed some while watching tv and vegging out.

wednesday, march 4

jason and i spent a lot of time watching movies this week. we started off the week with how to lose friends and alienate people - great movie. on this particular day we watched quarantine - not so great a movie. at least the part i watched while peering through my fingers was slightly entertaining.

monday, march 2

relaxing at home with a glass of wine. so far this year, i've broken one of robyn's glasses and she's broken one of mine. we high-fived and called it even.

sunday, march 1

the snuggie is dominating conversations at work and apparently at home. jason decided to make his own snuggie out of his hoodie. fancy. we need to stop watching infomercials.

saturday, february 28

bree's family was in town so her sister, meg, and i spent the day watching movies. and not just any movies, all three high school musicals. meg's knowledge of every song lyric and dance routine was quite impressive. i'm not going to lie. that day i became a zach efron fan. p.s. happy bday jon!

friday, february 27

craig at his finest. :) jas and i went to the friday night fish fry with the volleyball gang. the food was really tasty, and they had german chocolate cake for dessert. here's craig shoveling in some more food. at least the guys didn't have a fish eating contest and get us shunned from the friday night fish fry.

thursday, february 26

spent the night putzing around on my computer. stupid addicting ebay....

wednesday, february 25

my old coworker john and i caught up for a beer after work at the old fashioned. (i love that bar) here's me arriving home afterward. i can't wait until it's light outside past 7:30!
