Saturday (in Denver!)...Sushi, Saki, and SURPISE

Saturday in Denver was a BLAST! It was so surreal to be there visiting with Melissa in person...just hanging out...too cool. Can you guess what we did on Saturday? Come on. Well, we went to Starbucks, of course. Then what? What do Melissa and I both hold near and dear to our heart...you know besides God, family, and friends? Did you guess?




TWILIGHT! DUH!




If you guessed Twilight, then give yourself a cookie! Melissa, Randy, and I went to see Twilight! It was our THIRD time. Well, except for Randy. ☺ I think he was surprised that it wasn't all girly. It was so fun watching the movie with Melissa (there I go with the whole "fun" thing again...I just can't help myself). Randy thought we were crazy for wanting to take a pic outside the theater...with our tickets in hand. He was a really good sport.

After the movie, we went on a drive in downtown Denver. It was BIG! Lots of enormous buildings and beautiful architecture. I wish I would have taken more pictures, but I got busy just taking in the sites.




In conversation, I had told Melissa that I had never tried sushi. So, after my tour of Denver we stopped by a local sushi place and I experienced sushi for the first time. YUMM-O! I sushi! (Thanks, Melissa!)






We also had saki for the first time too. I ♥ sushi, but saki not so much. It was still fun. ☺

Following sushi and saki, we went to Melissa's mom and dad's house for a SURPRISE birthday party. Michelle and Melissa's mom had planned a Twilight Surprise Party...how perfect is that?
Melissa, Edward, and I☺
Melissa's mom and dad...they are two of the nicest people.

Melissa's totally ROCKIN' Twilight Cake!
Happy Birthday, Melissa!


Hey, Melissa...could you have another birthday soon? That was too much fun to reserve for once a year! ☺
I still have a few more pics I'll post tomorrow.

So fun!! I am wondering where you went for sushi, as I have a favorite place in Denver called the Sushi Den. I have missed having it since I've been pregnant, but I can't wait to go back soon! :) No baby action yet, darn it!
