Build-A-Bear Frankie Poo

The great thing about my boyfriend -- he always humors my childish nature and my want need to indulge in anything and everything that induces childhood euphoria.  Even if that entails poking, tickling, and scaring him every chance I get.  Although, he now flinches/jerks after every slight movement I make, thinking I've got something planned under my sleeve, but what are ya gonna do?  I keep him on his toes ;) 

I am quite notorious for trying to scare people.  If you're a good friend of mine, chances are I've probably tried to scare you at least once during our friendship.  It is also very likely that I've gotten you REAL good (Jalene? Lol) ... HAHAH.  I am seriously going to start taking videos of the moments I try to scare Peter I've gotten him SO good these past weeks.  I am cracking up just thinking about it.  The great part is, no matter how scared he gets, we both get a laugh out of it. Mostly me of course.  One instance:
As Peter prepared some food to cook, I snuck into the kitchen while he grabbed things out of the fridge.  He stood up and was awfully close to seeing me... so as he halfway closed the door, I pounced up and screamed "BOOO!"  Oh man, I laughed so hard.  I'm a ninja.
Now, we originally planned to go to the mountains today so I could bask in the autumn beauty, but he got off of work late and it was pretty windy.  You think the leaves would still be pretty shades of gold & red?  Man, I always miss autumn in the mountains.  Maybe one day.

Instead, we horsed around for a bit.  I played with my prizes from Shakefire.  I am inLOVE with my Tale of the Despereaux lunchbox!  It's tin, like I wanted, and just pretty nifty.  Peter likes it too!  We finally got off our butts once it started getting dark and headed over to Shops at Centerra.  We headed directly towards the Build-A-Bear store!  I can't tell you how excited I get everytime.  We went there with the intention of getting me a Pander bear (panda), but they didn't have the one I wanted.  Peter suggested I get the Polar Bear and after much deliberation, I did!  Hehe.  I think I overstuffed him though, I hope I can go back and getting him.. unstuffed?  Lol.  But I love him none-the-less!  We named my new bear Frankie.  He's a cute one!

I also got the simple Chocolate Cub bear for a future Christmas gift for my mom.  I think she'd like it.  His name is Sammie.  I think I might go back again and get another bear for my bro's girlfriend, Dianne.  Peter & I paid seperately so that we could take advantage of the $5 off $10+ bears.  We got two bears for under $20!  Not too bad.  My Build-A-Bear army is now 4 strong!  Champ, Mo, (Crap I forgot her name), & Frankie.  Yes, I name all my stuffed animals.  Yes, I still remember all my stuffed animals names from when I was 3 years old.  Did I mention I'm a kid?

After that, we had Pho in Loveland for dinner.  Wish they had a Pho place in Greeley.  Perhaps I'll need to just open one here.  Haha.  It was delicious!  I love Bo Vien.  Yum Yum.  Peter has definitely influenced my palette over the years.  Now it's my turn!  I'm going to cook him all these Filipino dishes and probably cause a premature heartattack in the future.

Once we got home, I shredded all the chicken breast that I boiled earlier for chicken sandwiches while we watched Wedding Crashers.  Chicken, mayo, & pineapples!  It was my first time making the mix, once again based on what my mom makes, and it was delicious!  I made myself 2 sandwiches and have a whole tupperwear full for more sandwiches over the next couple of days.  I am on a cooking spree!

So.. time w/ bf, build-a-bear, meatball pho, chicken sandwiches, & wedding crashers.  Life is where it should be.

Did I mention that today I finally set-up a date to install TV?  I can honestly do without TV, but Peter's been dying without it.  LOL.  150+ channels, 9 channels of showtime for 3 months, free install, free ship, free year of service coverage -- $19.99 for 12 months.  Not bad.  I got the runaround with DirectTV afterwards though since the rep that setup my account gave me 'wrong information' .. Last rep I talked to didn't help me too much, but at least we had a nice convo about Colorado, snowboarding, skateboarding, & huskies.  HAH!
