I’ve been very busy this last week, could you tell? On top of my regular job, I’ve been working lots of hours at my side job and I’ll be heading to Perth tomorrow on a business trip. Yes… I am going on a business trip in Australia for the company in California. Amazing right? It’s weird how things work out in life.
So amidst all the hustle and bustle of my multiple jobs, I have also been making time to hang out with friends. Last weekend I had our girls night out with Natasha and Hayley (where we made pizza and sangria and then headed to The Oaks for some drinks). This weekend I had fun plans every single day! I did miss Andrew though. From Thursday morning to Sunday night we probably saw each other for about six hours TOTAL for all four days. Between his work, my work and our separate plans, we just kept missing each other.
Friday night a bunch of us headed to Chinatown to celebrate Kristin’s birthday at a Chinese dumpling and noodle house. Despite the fact that they crammed about 18 of us into a space meant for 8 and despite the stools the size of dinner plates and despite the fact that they give you plastic cups for your wine, the food was quite good. We got TONS of dumplings and noodles (way too many in fact) and we all had BYO wine and/or beer and it only cost us $15 each! That is pretty damn cheap in this city. Afterwards we headed to the Gazebo Wine Bar for a glass or two. I had a great night, the only thing missing was Andrew (he was working).
Saturday night Veronica and Renee held a little Mexican themed girls cook off at their house. We each brought a Mexican themed dish (of course I brought guacamole) and we all shared some dinner and enjoyable conversation and laughter. They put together clever little games and had welcome drinks upon arrival. Veronica and Renee made my Sangria recipe and I’m happy to report it was just as good the second time around. It wasn’t just a one-time fluke, it really is an awesome sangria recipe! To top off the night the girls even got a pinata! I can’t remember the last time I hit a pinata, it was great! I think we all had a really fun time that night. Muy Bueno ladies!
Sunday I ventured out to the city to meet Natasha, Tracy and Salome to see Sex and The City 2. It was entertaining, but not nearly as funny as the first (in my opinion). I just thought a lot of it dragged on, but there were definitely cute moments. Although the movie was good, I think my favorite part of the day was when I saw a bride on George street. I saw her from behind and was so happy for her. I got that “awww, that will be me soon” thought in my head. As I was approaching her she turned and I’m pretty sure I gasped out loud when I practically saw the nips of her big honkin’ boobs that were spilling out of her way-too-small dress. OK… maybe I didn’t see nips- but it was about thisclose! I was apalled! But still, seeing a bride out on her wedding day- and then laughing at her horrendous choice in attire- was quite amusing. It gave me something to smile about, I just wish I had a camera!
Sunday evening I FINALLY got to hang with Andrew after barely seeing him for more than a few hours since Wednesday night. I was so happy to just sit on the couch with him for a bit before we drove to Mike and Hayley’s for a yummy taco, rice, beans and apple empenada feast! Mexican two nights in a row? Don’t mind if I do!
I had a great weekend. It was nice to get out and do something fun after being stuck inside for the last million days due to never-ending torrential downpoors. I wonder what next weekend will bring!
