New Year’s Eve at the Huntees

Posted on January 14, 2021 by under Events, Games, Life.    

Since large gatherings are kind of frowned upon right now, Brian and I didn’t really have any New Year’s Eve plans. We were prepared to spend the evening at home in our pajamas but got invited to join the Dills and the Huntees which, me being the social animal that I am, I gladly invited on our behalf.

Their son Cody and his wife Molly were there too. Mama Dill and Gronk joined the fun as well. Below is a picture of group playing Pick Your Poison, which is a cross between Cards Against Humanity and Would You Rather?

Untitled

The game was a bit more complex than Cards Against Humanity and you had to keep score using pen and paper because it wasn’t just one point per round. You could score a different number of points based on certain scenarios and each person would get their own score. Anyway, there are nuances of the game that can be a bit much specially after you’ve had a few drinks.

Untitled

Speaking of drinks, I decided to get the December Shaker and Spoon box (Rums of Origin 3) for our friends this year so I brought my drink kit to the Huntees that night and we made some more drinks.

Untitled

This is a picture of the Abukado Colada drink, which would have turned out much better had we read the instructions on how to properly use the can of coconut milk that was provided. It still tasted fine to me but everyone else was weird about it.

Untitled

Each Shaker and Spoon box comes with recipe cards like this one. We should have read the one for Abukado Colada thoroughly before making it. LOL. Kiss of the Oceans is the other drink that we made that night. When you follow the directions and measurements, it doesn’t make very much. That’s probably a good thing because it’s quite strong. Of the three recipes they sent, this one was the strongest.

Untitled

We didn’t stay at the Huntees very late. After a couple of drinks and a round of Pick Your Poison, we pretty much had to go — because, you know, we have that thing that we do at midnight on NYE every year.

Thank you so much to the Dills and Huntees for including us in their NYE festivities, and to the Huntees for being such wonderful hosts. I really enjoyed hanging out (which I’ve really missed doing since this pandemic started). It was tons better than just sitting at home and staring at Brian. LOL.

Until next time. GNG.

My Collection of Dance Games

Posted on January 16, 2018 by under Games, Shopping, Wishlist.    

I asked Brian to take me to Game Stop before we had my last Zumba World Party party because I wanted to beef up my collection of dancing games. We found some games at Game Stop but we didn’t remember what I already had correctly so we ended up getting a duplicate of Just Dance 2016. Brian had to take the game back the next day since I already had it. It worked out great for him though because he ended up getting one of the games he wanted.

In the meantime, we didn’t want something like this to happen again so we decided to take a picture of all my dancing games. Next time we go to the store to pick up a new game for me, we can consult my collection first and then we won’t end up mistakenly buying the same games over again.

Here’s what I have so far..

Untitled

Of course I have Zumba World Party. This is the whole reason that we bought me an XBOX and Kinect to begin with.

I also have several Just Dance games.

Just Dance 2016 is the one we ended up buying again on accident. I didn’t realize I already had it. The ones I’m missing from the series are actually Just Dance, Just Dance 2, Just Dance 3, Just Dance 2017, and Just Dance 2018. I don’t really much care about the first three Just Dance games but I did order Just Dance 2017 since they didn’t have it at Game Stop. I’m waiting for the price of the latest game in the series, Just Dance 2018, to drop in price before I buy it.

As far as Dance Central games go, I have these ones…

I think these are the only ones they ever made in the series, though. Do you guys know of any dancing game that I should definitely add to my collection?

Becca’s Birthday Game Night

Posted on December 13, 2016 by under Events, Games.    

Untitled

We had the opportunity to celebrate Becca’s birthday last month. It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving so the theme was “Leftover Potluck,” which was perfect because we had a ton of leftovers.

Untitled

I was trying to earn some bonus points so I wore my one and only Pats shirt.

Untitled

We played some Cards Against Humanity and the new Mouthguard Challenge game. I didn’t want to put one of those things in my mouth so I volunteered to be the game master and official picture-taker.

It was hilarious! We had a great time celebrating Becca’s birthday. Cheers to another awesome year!

Ping Pong, Anyone?

Posted on August 12, 2016 by under Games.    

Untitled

Came back to work after ZINCON and found this in our “fun” room at work. It’s perfect because it’s too hot to play outside at the pop-up park in the middle of summer. We’ve gotten great use out of the new ping pong table since we got it. Kinda makes me want to get one of our basement.

Pre ZINCON Prep and Pokémon

Posted on August 1, 2016 by under Babies, Food and Drink, Games, Things to Do.    

We took last Tuesday off to get ready for ZINCON since we had to fly out at 5 AM the next day. We took the girls to the pet boarding place and then got manis and pedis and even squeezed in some Pokémon hunting.

Untitled

Molly was super excited she got to drive to the pet resort. She is such a good little driver. She always looks both ways.

Untitled

Before you freak out, I’m only kidding about Molly driving. We were stopped at a light when we took these photos. She looks really cool driving Brian’s car, though. Really gangsta. Just sayin’.

Untitled

Then Brian and I were off to Nails and Beyond for manis and pedis.

Untitled

I had my toes painted glittery purple to match my prom dress for the theme party.

Untitled

After spending a couple of hours at the nail salon, we decided to head over to District Taqueria to support the Dress for Success fundraising event.

Untitled

Don’t ask me what three tacos I got because I can never remember.

Untitled

Brian is not a huge fan of DT. He’s more of a Qdoba kind of guy. I love the taco selection at DT, though. I also like the thick queso with kick. And, they have great desserts that they serve in cute, little mason jars (like the one the containing the queso in the picture above). We were good and skipped dessert this time, though. Plus, they were really busy. We almost left and ate somewhere else because there weren’t any open tables. I’m glad we waited a bit though, because I really wanted to help Dress for Success even though in a very small way.

Untitled

We walked off our lunch by walking along Douglas and hunting for Pokémon. It was over 100 degrees that day so we were a bit nuts but we’re kind of addicted to the game. We got Rita’s Italian Ice to cool us off a bit and I actually managed to talk Brian to checking out Wichita State University campus as well.

The WSU campus was a bit disappointing. They had a lot of stops and there were five gyms but not really any rare Pokémons. Actually, there were hardly any mons that popped up for us. By far, the best place I’ve found for Pokémon hunting is down by the river. The Keeper of the Plains area is always hopping with Magikarp and Psyducks, and has been buzzing with people (fellow Pokémon trainers presumably) since the game was released last month.

Untitled

Here are some pictures of us hunting Pokémon downtown. This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago at the ICT Pop Up Urban Park, one of my most favorite places for hunting Pokémon because it’s got four Poké stops all in the same vicinity. I was actually walking back and forth along the block to hatch some eggs and I ran into Rolo when I sat the the corner of Douglas and Main to take a break.

Untitled

We’re going to be really busy this coming week so we won’t have time to hit the hot spots but we will definitely keep you guys posted next time we’re out Pokémon hunting and perhaps we can all meet up. Until then, have a fantastic week!
