Best embarrassing moment...EVER!
The dessert made it worth it if the hat didn't!
While Josh has been aging, so have my caterpillars!!! It has been soooo interesting to watch!
First, they grew to be HUGE! They managed to eat to the bottom of their food container.
Then, on Friday morning I woke up to some hanging while the others bumped into them all day long
As they hang, under their skin they grow their chrysalis which bursts their skin apart in about two minutes so they go from looking like the hanging guy on the left to the blob on the right. Josh and I saw it happen...TWICE. (By now, you're thinking that I'm a mega-nerd. I don't know why this is just as cool to me now as it was when I was in kindergarten haha)
By Saturday, all six were hanging and ready to go! When I had this kit as a kid, only two lived to this stage so I'm feeling pretty motherly about it :D
Once they all started looking like Metapod:
we got to move them into the butterfly cage. I was afraid they were going to fall off but they survived it! (wonderful photography by Josh)
Hopefully by next week's post, we will have six happy butterflies in our house :D
While the last of the caterpillars were turning into teenagers, Josh and I went to TRUE AGGIE NIGHT! Yup, I stayed awake (barely) and we got a great spot in line. The people in front of us had been waiting for two and a half hours. We waited about forty-five minutes for our #3 spot.
We were freezing sitting on the ground but less than a half hour after we showed up there was about 200 people behind us in line so we had great timing! I was hoping we would have picture proof of the kiss by the time I finished this post but no such luck...it was way too hectic to get a picture taken on my own camera (I would've never seen it again) so I'll have to wait until USU posts the pictures for my proof.
Saturday was the White-Out homecoming game against UNLV. I hadn't been to a football game since my freshman year (not a huge fan) but the difference in the crowd was unbelievable. In 2008, barely anyone went to the games because we weren't very good. Now that we have a new coach, the stadium gets PACKED!
We had lots of fun and made it through all but the last ten minutes of the game
where we snuck back to the car and got some of this!
We had to finish the weekend with some junk food because Josh and I both have two tests on Monday and had no life today so we could study
(can you sense my procrastination?)
