Weekend Recap

18 Oct
I should really be doing homework instead of writing this, but when I was asked why it was important to write what has been going on in my life as of late, the answer came to me immediately. I want to look back 10 years from now, read this and cherish the memory. Also, I want to see how much progress I will have made as a writer. 🙂 So here goes, this past weekend’s recap or “The Weekend When I Ate My Weight in Cake”.So this weekend was so…eventful. First off, I had to leave work early on Friday and drive to Selma for an hour. Once I got there, it was time to get dressed up for the big event. So I put on my favorite nude pumps and my make up and then we waited and waited and waited. Finally we got the call, and we drove to Smithfield, and then after a little bit of more waiting, this happened:

Yay! My friends are married! It was a sweet and short ceremony. My favorite moment was when my friend A said the word “forever” and the clerk said no one had ever said that word before. Aww.

Then it was cake time, so I ate cake slice #1. And this is my favorite picture of wedding cake eating ever:

We later drove to an Italian restaurant and had a great dinner followed by more wedding cake. That’s when I ate slice #2. Later that night, we went back to the newlyweds’ house and had some beers with more friends. At midnight, we sang happy birthday to J and ended up having drinks and talking until 3:00 AM.

Our hosts made a delicious breakfast for us, and soon afterwards packed up their stuff to go on their honeymoon! We stayed at their house for the rest of the day while I did my homework. I honestly did a half-assed job because I was so eager to drive to Fayetteville for another celebration. It was also D’s birthday.

Finally at 5:30, we left the house and stopped at the mall for a last minute birthday purchase. Then we got to Fayetteville and it was time for more partying! I hung out with my bestie S* and her hubby who had had a little too much to drink but was just as fun to hang out with anyway. Then, the girls and I sneaked out and went to get a surprise birthday cake for the boys. I drove S’s minivan to Harris Teeter, and I felt like a mom. Hehehe. After we sang Happy Birthday,  I ate cake slice #3, followed by chicken soup and a beer.  Sounds weird, but it was a good combination.

After the party, I drove back to Selma at 4 AM. I didn’t crash or fall asleep. Yay! The next day I woke up at 1 PM. I kept remembering the fact that I still had to do more homework, but I was too tired to deal with it. So we just lazed around on the couch for an hour, then showered, then lazed around some more until we finally ate brunch at 3:00 PM. We had Peruvian food. Yum.

Guess what I had for dessert then? That’s right, cake slice # 4.

After that, it was over. I was so sad to say goodbye to J, but he had a long drive ahead of him. Then I went grocery shopping with A and afterwards, I hit the road too.

And now I am home again, with too much homework and not a single bit of desire to do it.

Oh well. At least, I have good memories from the weekend.

* I love you and your jokes in which you compare an herbed goat cheese log to a bar of soap full of pubic hairs. Gross, but funny.

    Contigo uno sí se entera de la vida de todo el mundo!! LOL. Lástima que ahora andes con el cuento de las iniciales que no dejan entender a quien te refieres. Me gusta más cuando dices las cosas completas porque eso de las iniciales hacen la lectura un poco extraña.

      Eso es porque tengo que proteger la identidad de los demas. Aunque si muestro la foto y alguien reconoce a las personas, no es mucha proreccion, cierto? 🙂
