Lunch dates, coffee, and lazy days.

To start off I feel I must say that "It's Sunday already?" Oh my! This week has gone by so fast. Here is a little recap of the latter end of my week, and the weekend.

Wednesday was a bit of a hectic day at school and all I can remember is that I had coffee before I left for school (around 9 a.m.) and felt the absolute need to get more after my first class got out (10:55 a.m.).

Scott and I also had a boba study date that evening.

Green tea boba & chocolate, almond, & coconut aka Almond Joy boba tea!

Thursday my first class (Intro to PR) was cancelled so I went to school a little later than usual, and Scott came down and we had lunch together at the Phoenix Public Market across the street from my school.

We also looked around my schools library before I had to go class. I found out that they have an amazing Plath collection that I must borrow from asap.

Friday I had to get up early (no school on Fridays!) and go down to a courthouse in Phoenix so that I could write about a court case hearing for one of my classes. It was my first time doing this kind of article, but since I called ahead and said I wanted to sit in on the hearing the bailiff was really nice to me and gave me coffee, and showed me the jury room, and introduced me to the judge. After the hearing was over I was also aloud to ask the judge, and the plaintiff and his lawyer anything I needed for my article (the defendant wasn't present as it was a weird pre-liminary hearing).

Later that afternoon I had to spent time working on my article and other homework.

Friday evening Scott and I went back down tow Phoenix to attend a coffee tasting at Cartel Coffee Lab. Since there was a Suns gaming going on down the street we had to park in my parking garage a few blocks away and were a little late because of it. However, I did receive an amazing free non-fat latte when I got there! Scott and I actually ended up missing the tasting because we went and put quarters in the meter of the guy Brian who was holding the tasting (Brian is a super nice guy and we were happy to help a friend). Next week Scott and I are actually going to do a private tasting with Brian, and talk to him about a story that I'm working on for the paper.

Walking around downtown Phoenix (searching for Brian's car haha).

After the tasting we went to Green for dinner. Green is an amazing vegan restaurant that serves the best crispy tofu!

Sweet and sour bowl with brown rice (and apples!).

Soynamis! Scott got one called "Raisin Arizona" and mine was mint w/organic chocolate!

(bright flash!)

Saturday and Sunday (today!) were both pretty lazy days. Since Scott works both days (at 5 and 6 a.m.) he was pretty tired (as was I from staying up to late watching silly tv), so we decided to just take it easy. We did look around for a new needle for our record player (ended up having to order one off of Amazon), and made a stop at Target. After Scott got off of work today we worked on homework, then had a romantic candle light dinner at Hillside Spot Cafe.

Tomorrow holds another busy day however, and will only prove even more that school is certainly in full swing and has no plans to slow down anytime soon.

Tuesday we have plans to go see Copeland and Ace Enders, and I'm really excited because I get to see my friend Nikki. She has a super nice husband, and a really adorable baby girl (you can read about their life at her blog here!).

Ok, time to get back to homework.
