Yes to the Dress?

Dinner and dress shopping was a lot of fun last night, and I think we gave Meghan a great start to her birthday (it’s today).  Her loving fiancée is taking her out for a romantic dinner tonight, so we gave her a night of fun and laughter.

Megh is an awesome bride, and has pretty much given us free rein when it comes to choosing bm dresses.  Her only requirements are that it be short, from the JLM line, and the silky taffeta material.  See all examples here, her colors are Raspberry and Midnight.  We all immediately got to picking out dresses, and when I had the one I liked in hand, the girl helping us said, “that one is somewhat difficult to wear if you have a large chest because of the way the top is cut.”  Then we all looked at my chest and laughed.  That won’t be a problem.  These were my two favorites of the ones I tried on, keep in mind they’re two sizes too big and need to be hemmed.

Number 1 choice

Number 2 choice

Dani actually really liked the second one and will probably end up ordering that one.  I fell in love with the first one the second I put it on, especially because of the fact that it has pockets.  My first experience with bm dresses wasn’t bad at all, and I could actually see myself wearing that dress again.

On the way home I found myself trying to explain something to the roommates, but they just ended up looking at me like I had 17 heads so I’ll try again here.  I go through weird phases, one where I want to go out a lot and hang out with friends and the other where I’d rather sit at home and not talk to anyone.  After so many weekends of going out, socializing, and boozing my face off, I have like zero desire to see people right now.  I was trying to explain how this weekend I would love to just sit at home not doing anything or having to talk to anyone, and they were shocked.  They couldn’t understand how I could want to “waste the weekend” that way.  I was like, well it wouldn’t be a waste, the weekend would still happen and I’d still get to relax.  They didn’t get it though.  Anyone else feel like this?  Am I just a weirdo?

Anyway, it’s Thursday, and I have a half day tomorrow, but like I said, haha I don’t really feel like doing anything.  However, Steph is in town again and I think there are tentative plans to get together with her and Kacy?  I can probably get over my antisocialness for dinner and drinks.

Extra Crispy

I was once again filled with the typical end of weekend dread last night when I realized it was already 7 pm and Monday morning would be here before I knew it.  Sure enough, here we are and it’s Monday.  Luckily I had a pretty amazing weekend, and it should keep me tired and recovering until oh say about Wednesday.

Friday after getting home from work, I immediately made myself a drink and relaxed on the couch before running a few errands with Adrienne.  Our stops included Dick’s and Target which means I spent about a billion dollars on running shorts and tanks, and really random crap from Target.  Then all three of us were off to Georgetown to see Bridesmaids.  We all agreed it was hilarious, and can’t wait to watch it at home and catch all the jokes we were laughing through.  Seriously, go see it if you haven’t yet.

Saturday started bright and early, so that we could finally take advantage of the gorgeous weather before kickball and descending into a dark basement bar.

We had a double header on Saturday, and since I knew Steph was in town and Kacy had arrived in the area permanently on Friday, I invited them both out to the Mall to hang.  Steph made it for the end of our second game (we won both btw) and Kacy arrived just in time to head to the Bottom Line for $10 Miller Light pitchers and tots.

There were many flip cup games played, pitchers of beer drank, and I totally crushed a basket of tots, they are always nice and extra crispy.  There was also lots of dancing to things like B Spears, NSYNC, and Rihanna.  It was a fantastic Saturday.  Around 8 (I think) the BL started to clear out, and I stumbled my way to the metro station to wait for a train home.  Kacy was still in there waiting for her train, and since mine was arriving first, I told her to hop on with me and I would drop her off.

After I dropped Kacy off, a trip through the McDonald’s drive through was necessary (don’t judge me) and I sat and ate it while watching No Strings Attached.  I passed out soon after, and didn’t wake up until 9 am the next morning when Dani was texting me to come get her.  Oh and in case you’re wondering what four hours of sun exposure for the first time all year will do to you, it’s this.  Extra crispy, just like the tots.

That’s this morning friends, two days later and I’m still a lobster.  It hurts like a bitch, hence the strapless dress, I am dreading putting a sports bra on later.  Yesterday was a bit of a disaster.  After I retrieved Dani, the two of us watched The Hangover, while hugover, and I was a mess, and actually puked up my breakfast and vitamin water, classy I know.  I did manage to throw myself into a cold shower, and pull it together long enough to accompany the roommates to Firework for lunch.  It was delicious, we split a Garlic knots appetizer and I ordered a Margarita pizza for my lunch. Amazing.

The rest of the day was pretty much the same, with some take out Chinese thrown in for dinner.  It was a fantastic weekend which has left me in a daze today, which is probably why I managed to leave my purse at home.  Yeah I don’t know, I made it all the way to work before realizing I didn’t have it.  Thankfully I at least remembered my lunch.  How was your guys weekend?
