laughter. peanut butter. questions. and more laughter.

one of my ryan's best friends is named ryan.
(told you there are many ryans in my life.)
this ryan doesn't like furniture.
he likes to lay on the carpet.
this is the view he prefers.

see? its ryan looking up at ryan.

last night we had a double-date with ryan and his girlfriend, josie. it was the first time for all of us to hang out together. ryan and josie and my ryan know each other from graduate school. i knew the other ryan since he is besties with my ryan - and we've also been on the same team on missions trips to the Philippines. (sorry about all the ryans! i'm learning every day that it has got to be one of the most popular male names out there!).

so needless to say as you scroll down the pictures we below, we had a blast of a time! my ryan and i expected to have fun, but it was really, really fun. josie and her ryan are such good people - and we all love to we did a lot of that last night.

we made our favorite dessert.
(recipe found here.)
yup. peanut butter reeses' cup in a peanut butter cookie.
kill me now. i could probabaly eat the whole tray if no one stopped me.

and we laughed a lot. whether we were talking about life or playing the 'question' game we laughed. and you know how much i love to laugh.

the besties. ryan and ryan.
they don't know how to take normal photos.

this was our first double-date with this incredible, fun couple.
i told ryan that i wish we had done more with them.
its the sad reality of moving, but i'm just glad we even did it at all.

and btw folks, it's FRIDAY!
are you as happy as i am about it?

hope everyone has fun plans or at least recharge time.
i plan on both.
might even do some wedding planning in the midst of my packing.

oh and don't forget over at sulu, we are announcing the winner of the big giveaway this afternoon!
