New 'do. Juju's 2, Bears poo.

Nicole: Hello!  This past weekend was absolutely great.  Everyday was filled with something fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it!  Friday, Justin and I went over to my good friend Ashley's place and had dinner with her and her fiance.  I haven't seen her in so long and the evening was full of stories and laughs and I think that it will definitely have to become a monthly get together.

Saturday was Justin's Niece's 2nd Birthday Party.  It was a Dora Fiesta!  Everyone had a good time and Dora even came to visit!  I also got a haircut in the morning and decided to change it up and got bangs.  It has been about 15 years since I last had bangs so it's definitely taking some time for me to get used to, but I've gotten compliments on them, so they look ok!

Sunday was not only the Bears game......yikes....but it was my good friend Iwona's baby shower.  It was so weird to see her pregnant, but she looked so cute!  It was so good to see her and I can't wait till her baby, Frank, is here so I can visit again!

When the girl is away, the boy will...

sit around and do nothing.  Haha

Justin:  So Nicole is on vacation this week with her family and I am bored out of my mind.  I mean I do have plans to work on my art and made a list of things to do.  But the fact that Nicole is in a whole other state (Florida, for anyone curious) makes me unmotivated. 

It's a unsappy way of saying that I miss her.  It's ok, last year I went on vacation to visit my cousin Jonathan in Maryland she was missing me crazy. (I know. She told me.)

It makes sense right?  She's my best friend and when you spend so much time with someone...not because you have to...but because you want to, its hard to NOT spend time together.

Aside from my best friend who I've known since we were kids, I don't have any other friends out by me.  I'm a South Side filipino and I have family over every other day.  Most of my friends from college live farther from me.  I was the only one of our crew to move back home. 

 When we first started dating, she would come over a lot and she was living with her parents and they lived by Midway Airport.  She would stay over til like 2 in the morning sometimes she'd sleep over and go to work the next day.  It was ok at the time cause she lived so close to the el.  We would text about the night before about he movie we watched or the book we had read together.  At one point her parents expressed concern about the staying over late and our late late nights were usually done by 10 or 11pm.  Boooooo!

However, It was a great "getting to know you, hey let's fall in love" couple of months.  Eventually she switched jobs and addresses and then I became the one that would hang out at her place.  We developed this idea that we are each others' second home until you know, we one day live under the same roof.  When I'm with her, I feel at home, even if we are not at my house or her apartment.  We could be at a Denny's grabbing breakfast or Target shopping for sweatpants, but I'd still feel at home.  I can't very well be home if we're not together and she's in another freakin' state!

So Nicole is it.  Home. Cause that's where my heart is. And to me that's also means I don't have a heart right now so I'm like a the The Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz. 

Soooo come back already so we can go see The Green Hornet!

Ringin' in a Fresh and Fly New Year!

Nicole: I know it's a week late but, Happy New Year! ( put it in some fun color or something)
We've been away from the blog for a bit with the whirlwind that is the holidays, but hopefully we will get this back up and going! 
New Year's was great for me, it was my first more low key evening with not really going out to celebrate and I have to say, I enjoyed it.  I don't know if it's just me getting older or what, but I don't mind not going all crazy for NYE, I just want to have a good time and be with people I like, and that is exactly what I did.
I started off the evening meeting up with some of my oldest and best high school friends.  We went out for tapas and sangria downtown at Cafe Iberico and everything was wonderful!

After that I headed over to Justin's place for some Cas family time.  There was lots more food, music, dancing, and games.  It was a fun and hilarious night and crawling into bed at 5:30am, it was a great start to 2011.  Here's to hoping the fun and hilariousness continues!

Justin:  Happy New Year all!  New Year's Eve was pretty awesome-tastic.   Which is a good thing coming from me because I am not fond of the holidays.  I've been like that for awhile and I'm trying to change my feelings towards them and starting the 2011 with good times and family is a nice way in doing that.

While Nicole was out and aboot with her friends I was at home spending time with my family playing video games, board games, and eating.

We all watched the countdown, hugged and kissed, and stayed up til 5 in the morning.  It was awesome.

Happy New Year from So Fresh and So Fly!
