the luck of the game night

st. patrick's day this year was bombstatic! actually, it was just like any other day except accompanied by my infamous couple game nights. really, these things are of legend material. when justin and i first got married and moved into the hacienda heights ward, we were SO excited bc there were lots of young couples for us to be friends with. COUPLE FRIENDS! we'd only heard of these mythical creatures but now we could actually SEE them! immediately, one of our new friends & neighbors [and now sworn enemies bc she defriended me on fb and i'm completely heartbroken by it....but would totally love to be her friend again if she's reading this. which she prob isn't bc she's just the coolest. but meanest for defriending me- seriously! how could you!] invited us to a game night and oh buddy, it rocked my world. imagine a world where people already have significant others so you're guaranteed to go home with someone and you only have to dress to impress other girls - and treats! it's MAGIC people! well i decided that's what i wanted justin and i to be like - couple friends people. i've thrown some parties that are quite memorable: the one for justin's birthday, the one with killer bunnies, the one where no one showed up, the one where every couple left on the brink of divorce. catch phrase can do that to a pair, believe me.
game night of years gone past - or justin's 23rd [sorry, its the only pics i've ever taken during one of our shindigs]

so we threw one of our legendary game nights [and people came] - i had so much fun planning the menu. green rice krispies, green oatmeal cookies, lime slush, green mint pie, guacamole, salsa & chips, and hot wings. lots of friends came and we played one of my favorite [but justin & my worst scoring game] - the newlywed game. i just love it- it's fun for people to try to remember things from their past, laugh at silly things, aruge over others, and remind each other what they love about each other. i think justin & i came in dead last [even though we'd been together the longest, but not married the longest. i SWEAR he changes/messes up answer just to get my goat!] but fun was had by all. here's the questions i made up so have fun with that.

I am jealous. I LOVE game nights and it's rare to have one around these parts. I wish we lived close to you guys so we could play fun games and get lots of answers wrong to the not-so-newlywed game. We need more couple friends that like games close by!

I would have totally gone to this party. I'm trying to be a more fun couple friend type person. But the not so newly wed game would have been boss. And if not, at least the food would have been fantastic.
