Hey DWC gang…I’m trying out a new nickname, did it work? Did it work for all one of you who read this? (Thank you reader!)
So this weekend was an eventful one…literally!! I had several things lined up and managed to make it to most of them.
Friday, I went to dinner with a group of friends and made my way out to Floore’s Country Store to see Max Stalling and Robert Earl Keen….only I missed Max because I was enjoying some yummy chalupas.
There were a TON of people there. Seriously–a TON…some of them may have come close to weighing this much as well. There was some EXCELLENT people watching to be had on Friday night, and since I’ve been doing South Beach and I’m not drinking, I really got to soak it all in.
Saturday, I woke up and decided that I was going to do nothing. And I pretty much accomplished just that. I watched True Blood back to back to back…and I’m still left wondering if I really like it or if it’s just entertaining/shocking. Honestly, I think “Twilight” is more my speed, but there’s something about this vampire theme that’s intriguing to me. And ironically, I really am not a fan of scary movies. Scared is not an enjoyable or “fun” emotion in my mind.
So is this interest disturbing to me? Slightly!!
Regardless, Winston and I sat in the La-Z-Boys and watched all day. I’ll reference this photo should you choose not to believe that she sits in her own chair:
See? I wouldn’t lie to you. I think this was a pretty intense part…you can see it in her eyes.
On Saturday, Winston and I were truly left to doing exactly what we wanted: we got some breakfast, got a diet coke, did a little drivin’, and headed home to retire in our chairs.
She loves the car.
As soon as we finished this difficult task, we got ourselves up, took a shower, and prepared for an engagement party. I know some of you may be saying to yourselves, “Libby, wasn’t that last weekend?”
Yes. Yes you’re right. But if you could only lead the glamorous life of Libby for a few weeks you would soon find that this is the norm.
The party was SO FUN!! It was given by a bunch of couples that are my age and was at the cutest house. The Bride & Groom had a blast and a good time was had by all!
Afterwards, I went to a wine bar to continue the party with a few friends…even though I wasn’t drinking. I’m into punishing myself like that apparently.
Sunday I woke up with the sun…and Winston in my face. I soon delivered her to the kitchen and went back to bed.
When I got up, we did our breakfast & diet coke run together. As you can see…no one is awake before their diet coke.
Soon after, Moo got home and we launched into Project Father’s Day. We got gifts, we went to the store, and we went home and started cookin’. For what felt like 3 days.
However, when the Pops got home, he was so surprised and that was worth it all…especially surprised at the ginormous rib eyes we came home with…which were amazing!! (Curtsy, bow, curtsy…thank you very much!)
We wound the night down around 10 or so and I went straight home and crashed in my bed. Only to look around at my room and realize that I was moving out on Thursday. THIS THURSDAY.
I have some work to do, my friends.
So it must be true what they say–the road DOES go on forever. And I’m pretty sure the parties will never end…
I actually am not. It would be kinda awesome though. Anyway, I’m in a wedding this weekend for one of my high school girlfriends and am really excited about seeing everyone.
It’s the same feeling I got a few days ago when I got my first email regarding my 10 year high school reunion. Only I know I won’t get to see all of the random people I don’t keep up with anymore but DEFINITELY am looking forward to getting a gander of.
I digress! So as I was carefully sitting at my desk thinking of what the heck I am going to wear to the rehearsal dinner, and the bridesmaid luncheon tomorrow I started thinking of my favorite movies with weddings in them and just wanted to share.
1) Not only is this a GREAT movie…and I’m pretty sure exemplifies every dad’s first daughter’s wedding, this is a great part. Look at the tension here as the Banks’ meet Bryan for the first time. EVER. And he’s engaged to their daughter. Amazing.
So…had a BIG weekend! It involved working out, weddings, movies, and another engagement party–I wish I were a wedding crasher but the reality is that I’m invited to said events. That means gifts, if you’re doing the math in your heads right now.
It also involved a HILARIOUS couple of hours where my mom gave my sister home-highlights. Because who needs to go and spend a month’s salary on a full pack, cut & blow dry when you can do it at home for a mere $10?? NO ONE.
Thank you to Revlon’s “Frost & Glow”, the musings of my youngest sister, me, my camera, and our favorite hairdresser Chlo-Reen (mom) we had a amazing Sunday that I will document for you this afternoon when I upload the pics…and video.
That’s right! You heard correct…I’m going to dabble in Vimeo this afternoon. Wish me luck.
