Thanks for all the compliments regarding my new blog header and my wedding outfit!  One of the best things about living with two other ladies, is your wardrobe doubles in size.  At any given time you can most likely find me wearing something belonging to either Danielle or Adrienne, and that wedding was no exception.  That dress is Dani’s, so a big thanks to her for letting me borrow it!

My weekend in PA was exhausting to say the least.  I felt like I barely sat down, and was constantly in my car.  After arriving home on Thursday night, after a 4 hour drive, I collapsed on the couch with a glass of wine and some pizza.  My sister and I hung out watching TV, drinking our wine, and relaxing.  Friday I was up relatively early, grabbed some coffee, went to the Hallmark store, and then was off to the hair salon to get my hair done.  I was dressed and ready to leave for my friend Michelle’s wedding by 3:45, and made it out the door and to the church with about 4 minutes to spare.

From church, to hotel, to reception, was pretty go, go, go, so by the time I arrived at cocktail hour at 7 I was more than ready for a drink and some food.  Luckily, Michelle is Italian and knows how to throw a party so I filled a plate up at the pasta station and camped out at a table with that and a glass of wine.  Butlered hors d’oeuvres are pretty nice too, then I only have to worry about going to the bar.

The wedding was awesome, and once dinner was finished I spent all evening on the dance floor.  When I woke up the next morning my feet were still swollen and walking was painful.  I suppose that’s what I get for keeping my 4.5 inch heels on all night in an effort to not look like a drunken mess.  I pulled myself together on Saturday morning, and left the hotel to go meet up with my mom for some shopping.  My sister’s birthday is next month and we were on a mission to buy her some things on her list.

Neither my mom nor I can avoid a good shoe sale, so when we noticed the one going on at Lord and Taylor we couldn’t help but stop.  I ended up with a fabulous pair of riding boots that fit the exact bill of what I was searching for this year, and way under what I was expecting to have to spend.

Aren’t they awesome?  They ended up being like 25% off, and I am itching for it to get cool again so I can wear them.  We also accomplished our main goal and purchased a present for my sister.  It’s currently in my possession so my mom wasn’t tempted to give it to her early.  Now I’m tempted to steal it.

I hustled home from shopping, pulled a quick outfit change, and hopped back in the car to head out to Conshohoken for a dinner date with my college roommate from Senior year and bff Jill.  She moved out of DC about one minute after I moved down last year, and the last time I saw her was her “goodbye” happy hour.  Not cool.  We had a delicious dinner at Pepperoncini before heading back to her new apartment to continue the evening.  Two bottles of wine, and one vodka and tonic later,  I realized I was not driving back to Yardley, and got comfortable for the night.  It was great getting to hang out with Jill and her boyfriend again.  We have plans to get together again when I’m home in December, and I can’t wait!

Sunday I hit the road back to VA around 2:30 and was home settled on my couch with food by 6 pm.  No traffic, just how I like it.  The weekend was exhausting, cost me a shitload in gas, wedding gifts, and dining out, but so worth it even if I did have to charge my groceries and gas yesterday, and even if I was so tired I very nearly filled my car up with diesel.  Thank god they make sure the pumps don’t fit in regular gas tanks, that’s all I have to say about that.

Happy Tuesday everyone, try not to hate it.

I’ll Be Quick

Just checking in real quick so you know I’m not dead!  I had some computer issues at work this morning, meaning IT was holding my computer hostage.  They still have it, so I’m on a loaner and trying to catch up on shit from being out Friday and unable to work for the majority of the morning.  So just a few things to entertain you.

One, if you haven’t seen it yet, pop on out of your Google Readers and check out my new blog header!  My friend Karyn took my spastic and vague ideas and made sense of them.  I love it!

Two, the wedding was awesome. My hair and dress both looked amazing, I ended up catching the bouquet and now vow to never be part of that wedding tradition ever again.  Mortifying I tell you.  Ever have a complete stranger slide a garter up your thigh in front of 100 people you don’t know? Exactly.

Three, the best friends are ones who you don’t see for an entire year, but it’s like no time has passed.  You will still have wine induced dance parties and snuggle on the couch together when you end up getting too drunk to drive home.

See, I wasn’t kidding when I said I’d be quick.  Perhaps I’ll be more verbose in my post tomorrow.  If you have today off from work, I hate you.

Bar Food

Mine and Kacy’s friendship can basically be summed up like this:

We met at Union Jack’s in the Ballston Mall at 6 pm and enjoyed our fair share of $1 beers and split some appetizers.  Ya know, because a long with lots of booze we also enjoy copious amounts of food.

My roommate, Dani, was amazed at the progress we’d made when she showed up to join us around 6:30.  Hey, a girl’s gotta eat, especially when her lunch consisted of spinach and tuna.  I was starving.  Happy hour continued until about 8 pm, at which point we said our goodbyes to make it home in time to watch some much-anticipated TV shows.  Yup, same life values right there.

The rest of my night was much less boring.  I watched Grey’s in bed, I randomly got back into that show last season, and passed out by 11 pm.  It’s disgusting out today, which is always a fun start to the weekend, and I have to get up early tomorrow so I think tonight may involve using the rest of an open can of pumpkin in the form of cookies.  We’ll see though.  I haven’t looked at it since Saturday, so it could be bad.  The weather for tomorrow isn’t looking so hot, but I’m hoping we won’t have another football game cancelled.

Anywho, happy Friday. Anyone got anything good going on?
