Sushi and Sufjan

Curt and I LOVE sushi.  We went to a sushi restaurant for our first "official" date and we pretty much always go out to eat sushi on any special occasion.  While we were registering at Crate & Barrel, we decided to register for some "sushi-making" things (i.e. wooden chopsticks, soy sauce dishes, platter, sushi rolling mats, etc.) because we thought it would be so great to have friends over and make sushi at home (and a lot cheaper too!).  Long story short, we finally did it!  Our friends Chris and Rachel Loose were kind enough to join us in our little experimental dinner.  It was definitely a learning experience, but we had a great time.  Here are some pictures from our night together.

I found my Karate Kid headband and thought it most appropriate for this occasion.  Curt was a good sport.

The set-up.  I want to give a special shout out to Rebecca, Lizzie, the Larsons, and the Bakers for the great gifts!  We are having a blast using them.  Thanks again!

 Rachel was a pro.  She definitely got the award for best roller.

Curt and I also LOVE Sufjan Stevens...and he came to Boston this past Thursday and Friday!  We went to the show on Thursday night and it was so good that I begged Curt to buy us tickets to go again on Friday.  For some reason Curt didn't think it would be a prudent financial decision to go see the same concert twice :(   Anyway, we had a great time in Boston.  We got to catch up with my sweet friend, Kelly, from high school and we got to check out the Orpheum Theatre, where the concert was held.  It was really beautiful.  Here are a few pictures from the show...

Oh, also we had nosebleed seats.  It was still worth it. 



 Balloons!  Please excuse the blur.

Here's a little video from the last song of his set....just in case you weren't sure what you were missing.
