The Halo Benders, Our Weekend, and Spending Hiatus: Week Three!

I never would have thought that I would ever get to see The Halo Benders, but after rumors of them playing with Built to Spill and The Hive Dwellers, it showed up on the board of the Capitol Theater the day of, and dang! Calvin went over-and-beyond nice, and got Joel and I into the show. We ran into tons of friends (below), and I can't tell you how incredible it was, but I can show you video so that you can see for yourself! Please see below on this, as well! :)

Earlier in the day, our sweet friend, Andrew, invited us over to his house for a small potluck, and Joel rushed to make pico, which we brought, along with some locally-made chips. Mmmm. The rest of the food was ridiculously yum, with pumpkin lasagna, rice pilaf, tiramisu, macaroons, mushroom cookies, quinoa salad, and some sort of bean dip. People in Olympia really know how to cook the good stuff! It was also fun, because we met so many beautiful and kind new friends! I love potlucks!

The rest of the day was spent snuggling with our baby kitties, and hanging out in the snow. AND IT KEEPS SNOWING. We've gotten a couple of inches already! What!

And on the Spending Hiatus front, there's not much to talk about! Look at that! TONS OF FUN AND NO MONEY SPENT! Day 23 of no eating out. Week Three was awesome, and life is feeling gooooooooood.
