Bridal Festivities Begin

Phew, talk about a whirlwind of a weekend!  It was exhausting, but well worth it to be able to celebrate at Meghan’s bridal shower with her!  Our journey? Looked like this:

That’s a lot of driving, and a lot of hours spent in my car.  Thank god there was hardly any traffic, or I may have driven us off one of the 4 bridges we crossed each way.  The roommates and I finally made it out of Arlington around 8 pm on Friday and rolled into Long Beach around 1, where we were greeted by an excited friend with bottles of wine.  Thank god for wine and friends.

Unfortunately we were up bright and early the next morning so that all four of us could have enough time to beautify ourselves for the afternoons bridal shower.  Thanks to the two local members of the bridal party, the shower went off without a hitch. Well, unless you take into consideration the spilled glass of wine and centerpiece that tipped over about 5 minutes in.  After that everything went off without a hitch.

Sadly for me, my night pretty much ended as soon as we undecorated for the shower.  The second we got back to our friend Megan’s house I got so sick and threw up everywhere and passed out until the next morning.  I’m blaming it on something I ate at the shower, or just adding nausea to my already long list of ailments.  Which, if you’re keeping track probably also now include a sinus infection.  I am falling apart over here.  Sigh.

We made it home by 4:30 yesterday at which point I plopped myself on the couch until bedtime.  I’m so exhausted today, my face feels like it’s going to explode, and I want to sleep for the next four days.  Sadly, real life must go on, and I need to be a responsible adult.  I *think* Dar and I are putting an offer on another house today, so hopefully this one works out for us!  Happy Monday fools.


Beer is Good

Yesterday as I was sitting on Gmail, I noticed one of my friends updated their status to include a trip to Dogfish Head Alehouse later on.  I of  course immediately gchatted him, and invited myself along :).  Delicious beers and food?  Sign me up!

I had plans to take the 5:30 spin class before meeting up, but of course when I got to the gym there was a sign on the door that the 5:30 class was cancelled.  Typical.  Instead I did 33 minutes on the elliptical, and a quick mile on the treadmill.  8:20, hollerr.  One of these days I want to do an actual mile test and see how quickly I can run one, I know it’s at least 7:57.  Then it was off to meet up with my friends

I’d informed them I was coming straight from the gym, but apparently they didn’t realize that meant literally straight from the gym, sweaty, stank workout clothes and all.  You’re welcome guys.  My first beer was of course the 90 min IPA, followed by its still delicious, but less ass kicking little sister, the 60 min IPA.  I also ate a salad, but that’s not really worth talking about.

I made it home just in time to watch Vampire Diaries (don’t judge me the boys on that show are super fine) while I packed for my weekend home.  Uh, that pretty much involved throwing one dress in a bag and a pair of shoes.  All my spring/summer clothes are at home and hopefully what I’ll be wearing all weekend.

In other news, I have found the perfect spot to search for a rich husband.  In order to avoid traffic the past two days, I’ve been taking an ass backwards way home, and during my drive I encountered some of the largest and most gorgeous houses I’ve ever seen in my life.  I almost drove off the road trying to look at one on Wednesday.  Rumor has it some NFL players live in the area.  I may have to “run out of gas” or “break down” sometime soon.  Don’t tell Darren.

Alright I’m off to my last day of workshop for the week, praise baby Jesus, and I am fully prepared with a giant container of iced coffee.  My drive home tonight starts at 3:30 pm, and here’s to hoping traffic cooperates and it doesn’t take me 5 hours like at Christmas.  Laterrrrr.

Uuuuh, yeah

So it would seem most of you are in agreement upon the sexiness of Brooks Laich, although as my sister pointed out, that picture does not do his baby blues justice.  Google him, it’s worth it.  Happy hour last night was a fun success, and there were about six of us who hung out until around 8:30.  Bar nachos were consumed for dinner, and $2 Blue Moons were drank.  I made it home in time to catch Modern Family and Cougar Town, um completely didn’t realize both were new episodes last night!  Both were hysterical as always.

I’m currently sitting here wondering if I really feel like walking all the way back out to my car to retrieve my water bottle.  I’m thirsty, but I could just use a cup all day.  Sigh, decisions decisions.  Maybe I’ll just wait a few hours until I go out to the post office, then I can accomplish both things at once.  Yes, I really am that lazy.

Tonight I have a date with the gym scheduled, and then possibly taco night with the roommates if they can wait until I get home from the gym to eat that is.  I promise to make it a quick workout and be home by 7!  Either way, I’m defrosting some ground beef so I will be eating tacos for dinner.  Surprisingly this week went by pretty quickly for being the first full week after the holidays.  I’m somewhat shocked that it’s Thursday already.  I’m thinking about asking to work from home tomorrow because it’s supposed to snow overnight/in the morning and I don’t feel like dealing with the commute.  We shall see though.

I’m really trying to think of something even remotely interesting to say today, and while I do have lots of thoughts I’d like to share, I can’t really write about them at the moment.  (How’s that for cryptic and mysterious, did I suck you in?) Instead I will just drive myself crazy with my own thoughts for a while.  Alright, well I give up for today, maybe I’ll be more interesting tomorrow.
