Today has been really weird, and not in a great way. I suppose I should expect that considering Friday and Saturday were purely fabulous. Tomorrow (and the week ahead) will be great! Looking forward to Saturday niiiiiight! :)
I had an aweeeesome day, and I can't tell you how happy I am to say that. Life hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows lately, so I'm so thankful that I'm able to sincerely say that tonight. Cierra & Joe got married today and it was beautiful! I normally don't cry at weddings, but these last two where I've been Maid of Honor have really gotten to me. Back to today though, I love that we were all able to go to Scotty's Brewhouse after the reception to just hang out and chat. (We went to Cooper's Hawk for the rehearsal dinner - wow, always impressive!) I think Bridget and I might have made some new (really quality) friends this weekend! Yay!
Finally, I had a productive day! I think it just took some organization and me getting myself out of the house to get me out of the funk I was sliding into. I had some super tasty Qdoba (since I was super hungry), and ran all of my Greenwood errands, woo hoo! I continued on into the night with a girls' night (+Joe) at Brook's which consisted of burgers, chips, and ice cream, along with pom margaritas and a few rounds of Apples to Apples. Let's hope I can continue the trend into tomorrow before I leave for the wedding rehearsal and sleepover!
Cierra & Joe are getting married in less than 48 hours! YAY!!! :D
What is my deal today?! I feel like such an irritated grump, and I don't like it at all. I went to an AH-MAZING concert with two great ladies last night. I am enjoying the weather. I'm fine. Maybe it's the fact that I'm still on the hunt for a j-o-b. I just got an email from one place saying "no" - and that was the one I was sort of counting on. Dang iiiiiiiiit! Back to monster/career builder/other job websites I go!
Of course we chose one of the hottest days of the year to parade around Broad Ripple! It was time for Cierra's bachelorette party tonight, so it was all worth it! We had a good time at dinner and then bar hopped the rest of the night. Some guy named Joe (and his fellas) met up with us at The Red Room, so that was a fun end to the evening. :)
Today, I'm thankful for rest. So many people are working 2 and 3 jobs just to pay the bills. I'm thankful that I can almost always get a good night's rest.
It's a crazy world out there, and I hate that my little social butterfly personality clams up and hides whenever asked out on a date. This. Is. Ridiculous! Why am I not fearless when it comes to this? What am I so afraid of?! Argh...
Today, I'm thankful for chocolate milk. It's pretty tasty.
I drove all over the southeast side today with a bride, her mom, and little brother. We were scouting out a good place for her post-wedding photos. We visited 2 farms, 2 schools, and saw most of Beech Grove. We found a great place (U of I) and I think it's safe to say we all feel better about Saturday's wedding. Hooray!
Today, I'm thankful for my social skills. Sometimes I realize that not everyone either likes or desires to be a hostess (with the mostess). I love having people over, and I consider it a blessing that I can do it (and that people show up).
Last night's first outdoor movie night was a success. I hope to do it at least a few more times over the course of summer and fall. If you ever want to come over, let me know! Way better than the drive in!
Today, I'm thankful for options. Career options, boyfriend/husband options, house options, food options, things-to-do options. I have freedom, and I'm happy that I don't live in a society that gives me many restrictions (like arranged marriage or "you're a woman so you have to stay home and rear the children"). If I chose to do either of those things, it would be just that ... a choice.
To all of the mommas and the poppas out there, you rock. I have no idea how you raise your child/children and still function like a normal person. I feel like I'd either be worried out of my mind that I was screwing something up or completely exhausted from lack of sleep (and worrying!).
Today, I'm thankful to finally get to see my best friend! She's been home since Saturday at 12:30 AM and today is Wednesday. Ok, I've been gone, but still! Thankful for some overdue hang time with her. :)
You know what never seems to get old? I'll tell you: Steak 'N Shake. Maybe it's because I'm a diner lover. Yeah, that's right, I said it. I'm a lover of diners. Milkshakes, burgers, fries, and stainless steel.
