I’m pretty sure I’m preachin’ to the choir with this one, but I wish weekends were longer. I also wish my commute was shorter but that’s a whole other can o’ worms!
This weekend flew by! I left off talking about how I was going to my friend Gera’s bachelorette party with Gina (other bridesmaid) and Andrea (Maid of Honor) on Saturday night. We started off with a taco bar Edelweiss boat tour!
So fun! Andrea, Gera and I (Gina wasn’t able to make it to the cruise) loved it! I got a little queasy when we started rocking back and forth but luckily that only happened a couple of times.
After the cruise, we headed back to the hotel and met up with Gina. We had some quality girl talk and then headed out to comedy sportz – SO GREAT! I’ll definitely go to this again – I didn’t even know it existed. We saw an improv show and had a great time! The bride was too shy to go up on stage, but luckily the M.O.H. Andrea jumped at the opportunity 🙂
I also took a video but she’d kill me if I put that on the internet 🙂
After the comedy show, we headed off to a quiet wine bar for the rest of the night and then back to the hotel. The four of us are pretty low-key ladies but it was still a great night!
Until I decided to drive home.
WHAT WAS I THINKING!??
Mind you, I was NOT drunk (I had a total of two drinks from 5 p.m. – 2 a.m.) but I wasn’t feeling well so I wanted to sleep in my own bed. Well, I got lost (in a not-so-good-to-be-in-at-night neighborhood, too – thanks GPS), had people scare the crap out of me at a stop light AND got stuck behind a drunk driver (who I called in to the police but I’m sure they didn’t catch them). By the time I got home I was so worked up that I couldn’t sleep! It was a late night …
The next morning, I headed downtown with my boyfriend and he dropped me off at Gold’s Gym. I took a tour, fell in love and FINALLY got a gym membership. Had to sign a two year contract (yuck) but it’s fairly priced and a gorgeous place. I’m excited to start working out there!
Alex and I then took off to my friend Mary’s apartment party (who might even read this – HI MARY!!) which was great! She actually lives right across the street from my old apartment and her place was so cute! I also played with their cat for a little bit – not long enough in my opinion ;o)
THEN off to watch the Packer game at the bf’s dad’s house (and they WON!) and I went to a book club with a friend from work. The book club was SO. MUCH. FUN! I loved hanging out with the girls and they all made me feel super welcome (even though I hadn’t read the book yet). I’m excited for the next couple of meetings 🙂
And now, it’s Monday (well, I guess it’s almost over at least). *cue dramatic sigh*. The next couple of weeks/months/who knows how long are going to be crazy at work. This makes me HATE my commute that much more. By the time I get home it’s super late and I’m starving (luckily Alex made dinner tonight – thank God). I really wish we could move. This apartment is gorgeous but I’m already losing my sanity and it’s not even winter yet …
Anyways, enough whining! This week will be busy at work but (so far) I don’t have any plans after work except trying to workout this week. Saturday we head up to DePere for a wedding and stay until Sunday.
Time to go – time for Taco Soup – YAY!
Random question: Is it easier for you to workout in the morning? If so, how do you do it?? I can never pull myself out of bed before 6 a.m. but I’m going to have to start soon I think …
