@cu97tiger, have so much fun seeing JT! My co-worker is going with her daughter for her birthday, and I was super-jealous.
@Lmhollister, yummmm, cake!
@TwoDimes, glad you survived your Star Wars filled weekend. Probably your BF is thinking, "I got a good woman here to put up with this level of geekiness - better put a ring on it soon!"
@BriSox81, so gorgeous! And SQUEEEEE!
So this was a really good weekend! Of course it started with work on Friday evening, which is meh, but it's nice to be making money.
Saturday I slept in a little and then had a phone date with my best friend who lives in IN. We have actually seen each other in person maybe a handful of times (we met at a creative writing seminar the summer we were 16), and it's just awesome that we have kept up a friendship for eight years based pretty much on monthly phone calls. We started talking about doing a fun trip or something for our ten-year friendiversary, which I think is an AMAZING idea. After I called her, I went to lunch with my brother, and then that evening I baby-sat for my co-worker. I had a great time with the girls, they had a great time with me, and their parents had a great time without any of us, so...success!
Yesterday I felt seriously sick in the morning, but I dragged myself to a study session with a friend. We were at least a little bit productive, so now I don't have too much to review on my own for our exam next week. I came home from that to find my dad, mom, and brothers being all nostalgic over home movies, so I watched those for a while and hung out with them. Then my friend and I went to see Spamalot, which was hilarious! It reminded me how much I miss going to plays, so I'll have to make it a point to do that more often.
This morning I woke up to my mom and some of our co-workers having night shift happy hour, which is what they decide to do on random mornings after work. So there were mimosas, there were quiches, and there was CAH! I had never played before, and I'm pleased to report that it was just as hilarious as y'all make it out to be. I see many CAH games in my future. Now I'm obviously procrastinating, but I'm about to pack up and head to school so I can study without distraction.
@TwoDimes I would have jumped at the chance to see that game! Me and el Senor are big Star Wars nerds. One of our favorite jokes is to randomly call out "It's a Trap!" in Admiral Ackbar's voice.
@brisox81 OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh I totally forgot to mention my ugly engagement ring dream HAHAHA
So Friday night, I woke up after this horrible dream. It was the morning of the c section, I was lying in bed about to get up and shower, and el senor threw like 3 engagement rings at me and said "Here, pick one and I'll send the others back." Apparently he had ordered them all from some online jeweler. They weren't just ugly. They were mother fucking ugly. They were made of pewter for the band, and crystal for the stone. One was a whole set (wedding band and all) and barely fit my pinky finger. The other was HUGE like I could fit two of my ring fingers in it. The third I don't remember. Then my mom walked to our door and asked what was going on and I told her that he'd asked me to marry him but that the rings were awful.
And then I woke up. Weird. This was my first ugly engagement ring dream.
@suzie211, I laughed at your comment about your H being in for sticker shock. BF and I watch too much HGTV, and we always make fun of the people who want to stay in the city AND have a 2-car garage (or big yard, or whatever) for a specific price. Not gonna happen. They can usually only get one or the other, unless they are willing to up their budget.When you guys are ready to buy, do you think you'll stay in the city or move to the burbs? There are SO MANY Chicago suburbs I can't keep them all straight!
