No engagement party is complete without some shuffleboard – at the Brave Horse Tavern.

So happy for you, Eric and Rusty!

For the record since Jeff and I got married half of our wedding party has gotten married or engaged this year!

Bri and I celebrated that we babysat Kat and Matt’s two adorable children and everyone survived unscathed:

This is the beach in Seattle. It’s sunny for about two hours a year.

I also moved decidedly into my late twenties:

And I also celebrated the end of the winter quarter and our elective Wednesday night class with Jim, Glenn and Bri by eating large amounts of Mongolian barbecue:聽famdin

Looking forward to Spring and our upcoming trips to Pittsburgh and Nashville!

In which I finally post some pictures from dental prom

(This post is for you, Bri!)

A month ago a bunch of residents went to what the rest of the UW dental school called something more formal like “Winter Gala”, but colloquially to us was called “dental prom”. I was super excited because it was going to be held at the Seattle Aquarium (octopi! otters!). Clearly based on the photos you can surmise there was an open bar and lots of fun.

We started off the night with dinner at Anthony’s on Pier 66 (the Aquarium is on Pier 59, so just a quick walk down).

Not only did we enjoy delicious seafood with great views of Elliot Bay at night, but were treated to the wonderful news that our dear friends Bri and Ian are engaged!!! So happy for them 馃榾

It was so much fun to have the aquarium to ourselves and we spent a good majority of the night waving at the otters and playing in the tide pools.

Jeff and I spent the days leading up to prom singing excerpts聽from this song and getting excited – the night did not disappoint! We even won a $50 gift card to our favorite 聽TnT Taqueria in the silent auction. Can’t wait for next year 馃檪

In which we celebrate

A big congratulations to our friends Symon and Ashley on their engagement! To celebrate Jeff and I took them out to Luc in Madison for some delicious French American food. We’re so, so happy for y’all!!

And our second bit of celebrating was for the re-opening of Paseo after over a month’s hiatus. Only in Seattle can you provide virtually no seating, accept only cash, frequently run out of food by 7pm, close FOR OVER A MONTH and still have people lined up out the door for your delicious, delicious Cuban sandwiches. I guess that’s what happens when you’re one of Esquire’s top 25 sandwiches in America. Welcome back messy goodness!
