Dude, so sorry! I forgot I had a blog for a while. I’ve been busy with moving and getting things done around my new place. We’re mostly settled in, but still have some boxes left to unpack. I also have a ton of pictures to hang, and I need to get a nice bookcase for my R2D2 collection. But I’m hoping to get one soon. I also had to jump back into wedding-planning mode, since I took a break to get moving sorted out.
This weekend will be a busy one! I have two birthday celebrations. One is for Fiona, and the other is for Andy. There is also Mothers Day this weekend as well, and we’re having a birthday cake for my dad and sister. Oof, I know a lot of Taurus’ (Tauri?). I plan to post my Trunk Club (link has my ref code) review sometime next week.
Went with a SpongeBob theme for my outfit. Jellyfishin'
In honor of not looking outside until spring (if it’s even coming), I’ll post about my weekend. We went to Golden Temple for Ginny’s 31st birthday. It was a fun night filled with dancing, drinks, and a Mickey Rooney lookalike. We all got out of the way, when we saw an older gentleman making his way to the exit. He asked my friend why she was wearing an inflatable crown. She responded is was her birthday, and asked how old she was. When she answered, he told her she was getting really old. Haha, thanks Mickey Rooney!
Golden Temple always reminds me of the Mos Eisley Cantina from Star Wars. It would be awesome if it was, I’d Droid-nap R2D2 and never return him! When the DJ rolled in with his giant CD binder, we made our way to the dance floor. Although DJ AARP uses an outdated medium to play his music, he does keep his Columbia House CD collection fairly up to date.
I had a fun (but short) weekend. Weekends always feel too short, can every weekend be a 3-day weekend? Thankfully, it’s almost Christmas time which means 12 straight days off are quickly approaching. Let me tell you, I cannot freaking wait! One of the things I did this weekend was head to a friends birthday outing at Mead Hall in Cambridge. The place was okay, but I’m not sure if I’d go back. The interior was modern-looking and it wasn’t as crowded as I thought it would be. Also, parking wasn’t bad at all. You can use the hotel garage and they will validate so you only end up paying around $6. The only thing that sucks, is driving through Cambridge. People aren’t that bright like you’d expect from a that city houses Harvard and MIT. We witnessed a guy driving around with no headlights, someone driving a Porsche SUV attempting to make a left-hand turn directly into a sidewalk, getting cut-off by a 1992 Corolla who then decided to stop in the middle of street, and people driving on the wrong side of the road. I’m not sure I’ve ever witnessed so much driving-related stupidity within a 2 mile radius, and I don’t want to ever again!
I named the strange painting “Devil Wears Albert Einstein”, it was weirding me out so not sure why I took a picture of it. I decided to drink Fluffy White Rabbits beer by Pretty Things. It was pretty good, I wish I could have sneaked the goblet home.
They carried the chalk board theme into the restrooms, which I thought was funny. I was in the Grey Lady stall, which is fine with me. I love that beer! I don’t like the strange dancing people Christmas decorations in Cambridge though.
I got back from my parents a little while ago. We celebrated my brothers birthday today and I remembered what he asked for almost a year ago. Thankfully, he still wanted the “Gone Squatchin'” hat and shirt. My youngest niece is so darn cute! She was helping my brother open his gifts. I stuffed my face with my mom’s amazing cooking. This is probably why I hate to cook, it will NEVER compare to what she can do. I’m bummed the weekend is already over, but I’m hoping that getting into the holiday spirit will make the next couple of weeks go by faster. I also decided to wrap gifts tonight. I finished all of them, but still have a few things ordered that haven’t arrived yet. I try to do most of my Christmas shopping online, I can’t stand going to the mall this time of year.
