Furniture, Dancing, and My Brain

Friday was an amazing day.

We went to Ikea, disheartened at the failure of so many of our errands that day. The MRI place only gave me a disc of my films, the American Fork DI wasn't everything we'd hoped it would be, the line at Wendy's was too long, the bed place didn't have as great a deal as we thought. BUT when we left Ikea, we were adults. Adults who buy furniture, because they're classy and sophisticated and grown-up.

This is our coffe table. It's brown/black, even though in the picture it just looks black.
We also bought a dinner table and four chairs. I'm in love with it. It's smallish, so it can fit into our smallish apartment, but it's really nice.
Kyle bought the furniture and loaded it into the car. How masculine is that? That is such a manly job. I was so proud of him :)

Then we went to Rice King with Alan and Amanda! That was a really good time, as usual, but the best part happened right after.

Ok, so something about me is that I Don't Dance. Never in front of anyone. I can dance with Katy, but that's about it. The last time Kyle tried to make me dance, we were at a dance party at Nieman's house, and it was right before we started dating, and it was a disaster. I hated life and myself and everyone who was trying to force me to move my body and it was really awkward! BUT. Last night, we decided to go to the stake activity (ice skating/broom hockey/dancing), which I never do anyways because...I just don't go to stake activities. But our mission was twofold. 1. Steal refreshments. 2. I had to slowdance with Kyle. I'm okay with slowdancing, it just never comes up because I don't go to dances. ANYWAYS, we rocked both missions, and then some. Because I DANCED. I must be really comfortable with Alan and Amanda or that wouldn't have happened. I don't really know what happened--it's like a switch went on in my brain and I was able to be a normal person! It was really fun. We lined my big purse with a plastic bag, and ended up stealing 9 donuts. AND I danced with Kyle. And get this, our first dance was to....JOURNEY!!!! Perfection. It could have been something completely lame, like most slow songs at stake dances, but I got to dance to "Faithfully"! That song was already on our wedding playlist because I love it so much. Awesome. Anyways, we rocked out. It was massively fun and waaaay unprecedented.

THEN Kyle and I watched BLUFFMASTER with Megan and Katy, which is just an awesome movie and the song from it is going through my head still. Kyle put together the coffee table because he just can't wait.

And NOW I'm about to go over to Jessica's, who's going to make me prettier for ENGAGEMENT PICTURES!!!! I'm so excited.
Also...this is me.

Love the picture! I wish I could've made it bigger though. I tried to click on it to enlarge it, but I was denied. tear.

Haha MRI's are so neat. Also, I have that coffee table. We love it. (We also have the matching end table.) Also got out bedroom dresser/bed side tables from IKEA. :)

So, Adam and I have your coffee table's twin...though not from Ikea. We love it.
