Welcome To The Good Burger

July 31, 2008

                              FINALLY – a hamburger worth savoring!! We met our friends Michelle and Ben for dinner tonight at a new burger place I’ve been wanting to try: The Counter.

I sat in on two of the four people. What was cool is that they were both so different with their struggles […]

Boy am I tired today! I guess I’m not used to getting up so early anymore. Come August 26th (when classes start up) I’ll have to be up early everyday of the week so I better not get too used to sleeping to 7. The husband and I walked to the grocery store before dinner […]
