Pretty Lights was here last Thursday at the Lyric. in case you are not familiar...
well it was (as last year) phenomenal. It was my treat (because i don't think pat really likes them...) and it was well worth it! pat and i went and ended up finding claire, ward, catherine, and pegs. and of course all his friends-mark, borz, nick, hutch-were all there and so we raged with them as well!! here are a few pics...don't judge...

Also! we've been juicing lately-if you have never heard of this...please, please, please! google it there are so many articles/websites about juicing! we have a juicer...
...that is awesome! but what you do is just drop fruits and veggies in there and they "juice" and only juice comes out into your cup and all the rinds and seeds (so you don't have to peel and pick beforehand) get cut out and are captured in the back. You could mix ANY thing in here and get an amazing concoction!! i'm super serious. i've always like fruits and veggies...but even if you don't i can promise this tastes like a daquiri! no kidding. you'll see the coffee pot next to the juicer...well i'm trying to juice instead of coffee. the health benefits are much more significant (as if coffee has any..) and what it does to your body is something i cannot explain. seriously...look it up. since your body does not have to digest these foods (they are already broken down) then it is like detoxing...but in a super delicious and filling way.
These are the fruits and veggies we are currently using. (bananas are hard to juice because you don't hardly get anything from them-just eat them). we've got lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, blueberries, apples, and carrots. This morning i juiced about 2 1/2 oranges, 2 apples, about 4 strawberries. It was so deliciously amazing! i knew it couldn't be bad with all the fruit...but sometimes orange is bitter. but no i just wanted to chug it. (it made about a full 16 oz glass and i split it in half...left some for pat and i drank about 8 oz)-just so you know how much it is. and that 8 oz. made me so full i felt bloaded. (of course...i wasn't). but! if you are looking for something fun to try...here it is! you can get a juicer online for about $100. it is worth it, though. oh and this afternoon i mixed oranges, strawberries, blueberries, a little lemon, a little lime, and some carrot. and it was AMAZING. i was worried about the lemon/lime being too sour and the carrot adding a weird taste-but i think that the carrot is by far my favorite juiced item thus far. ok...enough babbling. enjoy your night!! love you all!
