Hello, everyone! Remember us? Well, you can probably tell from our absence on the blog that school is back in full force. Chris is back in Spanish with a side of American Lit, and I'm taking so many English classes at once that I don't have time for much more than reading around the clock (although admittedly I really enjoy most of the novels). So this may explain why we haven't had much time to do anything blog-worthy lately.
However, Monday night we decided to put down the books and join our friend Chris Grandstaff for a little tennis at the SAP Open. We ended up seeing Pete Sampras play an exhibition match (better action/game pics over at the Grandpease blog). It was a good way to spend a few hours, but I tend to need some competition in order to stay interested. Chris compared the event to the Oasis concert he saw a few months back in that both were things he loved as a teen and here he is 30, watching them past their prime with a bit of sentimentality.
Oh, and our friends Will and Lisa had their adorable baby, Jack, on Sunday. Congrats to them and we can't wait to meet him!
Besides all that, we've just been keeping things low key... having nice dinners at home, fawning over our adorable (and sometimes crazy) kitten, and reading, reading, reading!
Parents, I know sometimes you visit our blog to see some recent pictures. With that in mind, here are some recent (albeit random) ones:
I used to sit in the cube behind you. Then I didn't. And then we fell in love.
