double dating

last night jeff and i went to a u of m alumni event in santa monica with erin and her michigan man, ryan.  they had imported some of ann arbor's finest -- cottage inn pizza, zingerman's brownies, stucchi's ice cream and something called chapati sauce (i still haven't figured out what that is, but somehow knew to steer clear of it).

after a couple of slices of pizza and some beer, we had covered a range of topics from books we are reading to movies we loved this year, which then led to several rounds of imitating curtis from wipe swap, and then onto one of my all-time favorite questions: what would you rather be killed by a shark or a bear? i love asking this question, because it always elicits such interesting answers.

every time we hang out with these two i laugh - and i genuinely love that.  it made me start thinking of how hard it is to find couple friends.  you may be great friends with someone, but if their significant other is kind of a bore it just doesn't work.  we've all been there before, right?

i feel like jeff and i are lucky to have so many great people in our lives, but i often feel that we don't get to see them enough.  now that there are two of us, it's far more difficult to coordinate with two more people.  nights like these make me realize that we have built a community here and i'm so grateful to have such wonderful friends.  so here's to more double dates in 2012!
