We didn’t do anything Easter-specific today …ya know, like color some hard-boiled eggs and hide them. We didn’t buy any chocolate bunnies or Cadburry eggs. We just woke up today and hung around the house….which I seem to be very interested in doing on the weekends lately. I really like having “us” time and “me” time. Maybe that’s lame, but I guess I’m ok with that. ;) Anybody do anything special for Easter? I assume my family back home is having a big lunch/dinner to celebrate and going to church together. I can see my mom rushing around with all the food and drinks and smiling really big. Wish I could be there with them!
As for last week, it was just a big work week with lots of design meetings that went surprisingly well. :) I get a little stressed when I know design presentations are coming up but my project managers usually take most of the stress off of me…they’re positive and well-spoken….one thing I hope to get better at with more practice.
We went out on Monday for St Patrick’s day (Isn’t that Kelley + Ryan’s 1 year anniversary!? – wow, time flies!) for some green beers with my friends from work – Rene, Jessica, Libby (and her finance Casey), and Bobby miraculously showed up at the end of the night to join us. Ended up at Howl at the Moon and got to see Jess for a bit. Lance was there too which was a nice surprise! I got a big foam hat and a bunch of beads and danced around a bit…ate some awesome chicken + cheese quesadillas. As you can see in the pic to the right – Bobby is also looking stylish in his foam hat, paired with his complimenting green soccer jersey. hahaha. I think it was a good night had by all…I’ll post some pics on myspace here in a minute. :)
I just got Lance Lalanne and his girlfriend Casie’s invite to their wedding March 29th and I’m so bummed we can’t go. We never got a save the date card and it was just too late of notice to get it now. :(
Bobby has to work 2 midnight-8AM shifts that weekend for a major website release at work. If we would’ve had more notice we would’ve tried to talk to Bobby’s manager about scheduling someone else for that weekend but now it’s kind of too late to do that. We were really looking forward to going too…the wedding is near Mandaville, LA which is where Bobby’s family lives…and it’s been TOO long since we’ve been down there to visit, so it would’ve been really nice to go see the family…I guess we’ll have to pick another weekend. This month will be hectic with the London trip.
Yes, I did say London. :)
Bobby’s getting sent to London for work the first week of March so I am going to fly over there the second weekend he’s there and meet up with him. I’ve never been to London so I’m REALLY excited!! We’ve been looking online for a couple weeks trying to figure out what we can do and where we can go in the short amount of time we’re there. I’m sure it’ll be awesome! I still have to book my flight though…
Oh and I never told you guys about my weekend…which really, the only thing to tell is about Sunday night, when I went with Jess Large to the Trump Tower for the Chicago Style Wedding Expo…it was sooo much fun. There was a Vera Wang runway show, lots of champagne and all the brides to be got enormous “swag bags” that were full of goodies from all the wedding vendors. But I’ve never seen one this big. Anyway my project manager Jill and her friend Amanda were there and bumped into us so we hung out with them all night and ended up at Howl at the Moon singing and dancing. haha. I’m sure I made a fool of myself, but I had a great time and it was good to see Jess. We live 5 minutes from each other but don’t see each other enough!
I guess I ought to go to bed it’s 1AM. Night night. Sleep tight.
