last weekend...

I know. I know. I've neglected my blog. And my readers. I wish I had a real reason as to why I have not been writing. Honestly, I just feel like my life hasn't been interesting enough. And it probably has been semi-interesting enough to blog about, I just haven't done it.

Boyfriend and I had a great weekend this past weekend. We spend almost every weekend together, so this one was no different.

Thursday night while we were talking on the phone, we decided to have a night in on Friday and watch movies. It's been a while since we've gone on a real date, so we decided to go on a date on Saturday.

Friday night, he and I ordered some pizza, had a few beers, and watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall (he had never seen it), and then chatted for a little bit before heading to bed. He then got up at the butt crack of dawn to head to work, and I headed to my mom's house so I could get some plastic bins to pack my stuff in. [Sidebar, I'm moving on Saturday. Away from Broken Arrow to Tulsa. With my best friend. Super excited!] I only meant to spend like an hour or two in Sperry, and I actually ended up staying there until almost 3. Then I got absolutely nothing packed all day Saturday.

Oh and then once I got home on Saturday, I fell asleep. Boyfriend called and woke me up after he got off work. I got up and quickly packed 2 bins and then started to get ready for our date that we had that night.

He and I decided to head to downtown Tulsa for the annual Rock 'n' Ribs festival, a festival that has quite a few barbecue competitors come to town and cook up food all day, then have a stage for some local rock 'n' roll bands. It was the first time I had gone to it, but boyfriend and I decided to go and check it out and hang out with my friend Emily and her fiance Casey. We all hung out while I ate, had a beer (or in D's case Jack and Coke) together and chitchatted the night away.

Boyfriend and I then headed out around 9 o'clock to go to the country music bar I go to with John to meet up with his friends J and his wife C. We had a good night dancing away. I got to teach boyfriend a line dance or two as well :)

Sunday was a WONDERFUL lazy day. I love lazy Sundays. They're actually some of my favorite days of the week, especially when boyfriend shares them with me. We did absolutely nothing all day, slept in way too late, watched football, and got $1 coneys at Coney I-Lander for dinner. Such a perfect Sunday.

How were your weekends?

The weekend I fell in love with dueling pianos

A couple weeks after boyfriend and I went on our first date, I asked him if he wanted to meet my best friend. I also asked best friend if she wanted to meet boyfriend as well, and she was all about it.

She and I decided that we wanted to go to a restaurant on Cherry Street, as neither of us eat there too often. She and I were talking about all the different places to eat, and I asked her about The Full Moon Cafe. She had never eaten there before. Boyfriend had never eaten there either. I can't remember if Katy's boyfriend had eaten there or not, but she and I decided that it would be a fun place to go to.

We got there, and they were having a a disaster relief fundraiser for the Mannford wildfires. It was loud, and we couldn't hear very well, and the woman that was singing was singing TERRIBLY. I looked at Katy and told her that I was sorry, and that maybe we should have picked somewhere else. We didn't even get our food until like 8:15, so by the time we finished eating, the dueling piano show was starting in about 10 minutes. Katy and I decided that we wanted to buy a bucket of beers and stick around for the first couple of songs to kinda see how it was.

It actually ended up being A TON of fun. They did allow requests so all the favorite bar tunes were played. The four of us ended up buying another couple buckets and singing along almost all the way to the end of the show. We were singing along, very loudly, at the top of our lungs and enjoying each others' company.

There was also a couple of birthdays and a bachelorette party there that night. The most funny part of the night was when this drunken woman got up on the stage and started dancing around with one of the pianists. Se then grabbed some of the dollar bills in his tip jar and tried to put them in her bra, and the pianist was like, you don't jack with my money. It was HILARIOUS how he freaked out on her.

Boyfriend singing along off tune like the rest of us at the top of his lungs made it to where best friend liked him and thought he was great. I actually had a great time listening to the two pianos play back and forth. I had seen dueling piano bars other places like Dallas and OKC, but I had never gone. It was an awesome night with great company. I believe the four of us decided that it needed to be done again. Not all the time, but definitely needed to happen again. Lots and lots of fun.

What do you think about dueling pianos?
