A Quaint Easter Sunday Potluck Dinner

This past Sunday, our house and the neighbors came together to have a potluck dinner. We weren’t sure it was really going to happen, but by the early afternoon, the neighbors had a giant ham cooking so the rest of us began to work frantically on our own dishes.

Around 7:00 that evening we began to set up. We needed three tables, multiple chairs, a coffee table as a bench, and the couch to¬†accommodate everyone. We used sheets for tablecloths and even found a few candles to use as centerpieces. As people started to bring in their contributions, it was beginning to look more and more like a feast. We had the ham, red and white wine, beer, two types of bread (Hawaiian rolls and a fresh loaf from Whole Foods), potatoes, broccoli, carne asada, sausage, spinach quiche, chicken, beef, and vegetable kabobs, chips and guacamole, an oreo cake, a key lime pie, and a bunch of mini banana cream pies. It was absolutely delicious. Most of us couldn’t remember the last time we’d had so much to eat at once. It was also the first Easter dinner I’ve had since I’ve been away at college, home was always too far to travel for a short weekend.

Hopefully the great success of this dinner will encourage more to come, because that was just too much fun not to do somewhat often.

Aaaand I’m done. With finals, that is!

With the conclusion of winter quarter today, I completed one item on my bucket-list: I ate at the crepe place. Delicious!

A few others are finished with finals as well, but not quite everyone yet. There are a lot of different plans in the house for spring break, so the majority of the house will be gone throughout the week. I’m headed to San Francisco this weekend, and a group of us are going to Vegas next week. It’s going to be legen……..dary.

A couple more pictures from this last weekend:


This will be the last of the blurry cell phone pictures, I just got a camera for an early birthday present!

Steep Competition…

So last night I received word that another blog about this house was created — written by Ethan, Wesley, and Travis.

Wesley and Ethan came down to the garage to announce that I had some competition. Ethan tried to persuade me that their blog would have a more honest (perhaps more shit-talking) perspective.

Thanks to Ethan for the video of Travis and the neighbor, Dane, dancing like nobody’s watching on the mansquare.

And just in case you couldn’t quite picture Travis playing snappa in a speedo, as discussed a couple of posts ago, here’s a visual for you. Thanks to Travis for posting it!

Bring it on! (The competition that is…)
