What we did this (long) weekend

Wow, I really am posting twice today...

Thursday was Ryan's birthday.  He says he had a good day. I conveniently had the afternoon off for a doctor appointment (the clinic suggested the date, not me...), so we had some extra time during the day.  We finally went to Black Dog.  I can't quite believe I have lived in C-U for almost 10 years and never made it there until now.  (Black Dog is widely considered one of the top 5 best BBQ restaurants in America.)  Mmmmm..... The below picture doesn't do the food justice.  That was an appetizer, Burnt Ends, and it was mostly gone by the time I took the picture.  Apparently, it was a miracle that Burnt Ends were even still available that time of day.   Apparently, they are usually sold out long before 4:00.  Mmmm.....

On Friday, we escaped to a cabin in Indiana for a couple nights...because I often sit around these days and think about all the times in the near future that we will NOT be able to do things like escape to a cabin in Indiana. 

This place was perfect for us.  They leave all the food you need stocked in the fridge, so you have no contact with anyone the whole time you are there, and there is absolutely no cell phone or internet service.  It was really, really nice.


Overall, it has been a really great weekend, and we are taking this last day off (MLK Day) to catch up on some things before Ryan's last semester of college starts.  Very thankful for the chance to relax before all craziness breaks loose this spring!
