wait wait...

We love NPR. So much so that my students have asked if all I do is listen to the radio because of how often I reference stories I hear. Last week, Sam planned one of the most memorable dates we have ever been on. It involved our favorite food and one of our favorite pastimes. 
dinner. chuy's
activity. the first ever live simulcast of wait wait...don't tell me!
Chuy's is an Austin original, so I grew up with this as a consistent staple of my adolescent diet. You can imagine my extreme elation when I heard that they were opening a new location in Tulsa! We frequent the Tulsa Chuy's, and always leave with (overly) full stomachs and even more full hearts.

NPR has lots of serious content. The war in Syria, politics, scientific advances, economics, etc. Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me is NPR's brilliant departure from the norm, as Peter Sagal and company make light of each week's news in a celebrity panel-listener call in quiz show. When I heard they were broadcasting live to local theaters I knew we had to catch it.  
We just had so much fun. The show was so funny that I would still laugh out loud a few days later when I remembered a joke that they said

Life lately has been crazy. We haven't had a chance to post anything about the last two dates, so here they are. Both of them. In one post.
activity. watching 42
I kept dropping hints about going on a date all weekend. We were busy every single night starting on Wednesday of last week and I knew it probably wouldn't happen. During church I realized that we had all of Sunday afternoon free! I mentioned this to Sam, to which he suggested that I plan a date. So I planned this one in about ten minutes.This place is so nondescript that I bet most of you have never been here. Despite it's faded awning and broken door, Bamboo Thai is quickly becoming one of our favorite Asian places. It's much fancier on the inside and the food is incredible.
A few weeks ago I was feeling a little under the weather. I had seen Jenna eat this soup called pho when she had a cold so I thought I would give it a try too. Oh my goodness, y'all. It's amazing. In the last three weeks I think I have convinced myself that I don't feel well just so I have an excuse to order this delicious meal again. It's almost like Mexican inspired Asian soup. Which now sounds weird. But try it. You'll understand. We don't usually do a movie for a date. The exception is when there is a movie we really want to see. My favorite thing is baseball. Jordan's favorite thing is history. These two affinities collided as we caught the Sunday matinee showing of 42. This is the (mostly) true story of Jackie Robinson's historic entrance into major league baseball. On top of the baseball, history, and civil rights goodness, Harrison Ford plays a feisty old Methodist general manager and civil rights activist. There were no wookies, however, which was mildly disappointing. Jordan planned a good date.

This next weekend is our first wedding anniversary. We hope to write a couple of posts celebrating this exciting day!
