Ok, so that may be a bit harsh, overly dramatic and probably greatly offends my uber-hippie parents. But have you met me (or at least read my blog)! But seriously, I’m so over winter and it ain’t even really winter yet for more than a month! GROSS! I hate the cold, I hate the rain.
There really is nothing that is good about this weather! It hurts my skin, it dries out my contacts, my dog even hates it! It adds to the fact that I’m going to potentially gain back the weight I have lost because I come home and immediately put on fuzzy sweat pants which of course have elastic waist bands – if you’re trying to lose weight – get rid of all elastic waist bands NOW, they help you not, it’s a false sense of hope – no one ever says “yeah, but I can totally still fit into my sweatpants I wore in college on Sundays when I was trying to find the remains of my liver swimming in the Vodka bottle and inhale as much taco bell as possible” – Have you gotten rid of your sweats yet? I’m also pretty sure it contributes to my future in skin cancer. I get so cold and miserable, that at lunch sometimes I go and nap in the tanning bed – best 20 minutes of the day for sure!
I’ll let winter hang out during the Christmas season – it’s nice for about 2 weeks, cozy and what not and then it should be back to Patio Weather! The cooler weather is nice for the occasional tailgate and football game – but home football games are over here in Arkansas so there goes that theory!
But until this happens – winter can kiss my toasty tanning bed ass!
It was a crazy busy weekend!
Saturday morning I woke up and went for a brisk run with Presley. When I got back home I attempted make Hog game watching plans, which at this point in the season is more like beer drinking plans, as the Hogs aren’t going to win… we’ve accepted that, it’s a “rebuilding” year.
Anyway, before the game I was going to head up to Benton county to check out some sales with Michelle. On the way, I got flat tire! BOOOOOO! So there I was, in my cute little game watching outfit, consisting of my new tall brown boots that I actually wore over my jeans and my little hog t-shirt and my tight jeans – NOT at all the proper attire to be standing on the side of the interstate to change a tire! But no one, I repeat NO ONE stopped to help me – I’m pretty sure I do not look like an axe murderer, but I guess I’m wrong. So, by golly, I just got out and changed the tire my damn self! I really did it – I was very proud of my self. I rewarded said victory with a mini shopping spree at the Promenade – YAY me!
I finally made it back to Fayetteville about the beginning of the 2nd quarter of the game – I met up with Allison and Ryan and lots of Ryan’s friends – that neither Allison nor I knew. Allison was decked out in her Auburn Orange and we just sat and chatted about everything while the game went on without us – and by us I mean not only us two ladies, but without the Hogs as well – we suck. We suck so much that the announcer didn’t even realize that Nathan Dick was in the game to replace Casey Dick – yes, don’t even get me started on the fact that we have the brothers’ quarterback. much like the brothers’ Grimm, the Dick boys might be better at writing fairy tales than playing football. There was an almost brawl on the field – that was fun – we got to yell at Steve Spurrier though the magic of tivo over and over again.
After too many Bush Lights – hey now, they were free – with all the tire drama I didn’t make it to the beer store to buy more appropriate beverages. Thanks for the beer Ryan – I owe you! I went home to take a much needed nap.
That evening, KC and Joe (aka Johnny and June from Halloween) had a house warming party for their new home! I LOVE their house, it’s just fabulous. It’s in the historic park area and they are both so talented and have superb taste in decorating! I couldn’t stay long though, Staci and I had a 30th birthday party to attend! That one got a post all to herself… see below! So we headed north to Benton county for my second time in one day!
Staci and I came back to Fayetteville to do our own celebrating on Dickson Street – so we headed out in below freezing weather in our cocktail dresses, too tall shoes and fake eyelashes because at that point in the binge drinking that seemed TOTALLY appropriate! It was a blast – or so I was told. It apparently was so good, that we ended up at Waffle House! I can not even recall the last time I was at WH – it’s been over a year I’m quite sure.
Like I said, it was a super crazy busy weekend, but it was all a lot of fun – however, only fun I can inflict upon myself and my liver maybe once a quarter…
This past weekend, we celebrated Cheryl’s 30th birthday! It was great party and of course Cheryl looked FABULOUS! This is one of the few parties where this group has been together where no one was pregnant, pretty much everyone farmed their children out for the entire night and since the party was at a hotel bar, you can only imagine how that worked out = lots of crazy drunk parents!
I’ve known Cheryl for about 8 years. We met when she moved to Fayetteville from Dallas and worked at Bath and Body Works with me. She and I actually didn’t get along at first… but we both got over that! =) She was part of our super fun group of girls that went out too much and had WAY too much fun. She was one of the few that were supportive of me when I up and moved to Dallas. Now she is a an awesome mother of two perfect little girls and also has a wondeful marriage – one most everyone should try to aspire to have! She has led our girls Bible study group for many years and has really been a solid bond within our group of friends! I am always amazed at her energy and her spirit and her fabulous style!
I must also share with you my shoes I wore just for Cheryl – I knew she would totally appreciate them!!!! You’ll have to imagine them with a black and silver accented flower rather than the all white and black straps. Actually, there were quite a few picture taken just of my shoes, but they have yet to surface.
