I had a really fun evening last night and took a night off from my usual routine (which is usually- eat dinner, watch Modern Family, read, go to bed by 9:30…lame). My friend Danielle came over to catch up and spend the night. We are both super busy and both travel for work, so it had been way too long since we saw each other. It was also Riley’s “Friday” since he has the next two days off, so he hung out with us too.
Instead of having a full meal for dinner, we had a nice little assortment of meats, cheese, bread, and other stuff to go with our wine. Way too much food for three people, but I can’t wait to make some yummy stuff with all the leftovers.
Coco tried to get in on the photo session….I had to delete about 10 pictures that she’d photo-bombed, that little rascal.
After completely stuffing our faces we relaxed, caught up, drank some wine, and introduced Danielle to Cards Against Humanity, which she quickly started loving. If you haven’t played it, it’s the funniest game ever. We even figured out a way to play it with three people so we wouldn’t have to wait for a big group.
It was nice to have a break from the normal weekday routine and have some fun catching up with a friend. No, I didn’t wake up at 4:30 this morning to work out, but I know I’ll get it in at some point. Maybe over lunch, maybe not until tomorrow. Working out is great for your sanity, but sometimes spending a whole evening laughing your butt off with a friend is even better.
I stayed up past my bedtime, so no time to cook breakfast this morning. This is a perfect excuse for me to make a stop at Starbucks for a latte and a breakfast sandwich! Today starts my last trip of spring travel for work. I’m heading up to northern VA for a college fair tonight, then coming back tomorrow, so it’ll be a quick one. Guess that means I’d better get going!
What’s your normal weekday evening routine? Tell me I’m not alone in being totally lame most nights!
