Love/Hate After a Looonnnnggg Weekend

16 Mar

Love: Planning Darling’s Surprise Party and realizing that when she walked in to the room she really didn’t have a clue about the event.
Hate: That it takes a special event- birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, to gather with your truest and closest friends. Are we all really that busy?

Love: Venturing out with HB to a group gathering, after Darling’s party, to celebrate my friends who were getting married on Saturday.
Hate: The numerous questions that followed as a result of his attendance at said party.

Love: Justin & Meg tied the knot last night; their wedding was incredibly fun and was a semi-high school reunion.
Hate: There were two girls at my table who kept calling me by the wrong name (Layla) rather than my real one. Kind of funny.

Love: Live music at aforementioned wedding.
Hate: The wood floor at this particular venue wasn’t finished so removing our shoes was a no-no… which resulted in a few blisters on the feet this a.m.

Love: Adult sleepovers; myself and two of my best friend couples crashed at the home of the bride and groom since they weren’t using it last night. Doing the post-party wrap-up the same night as the party (and with a tad of alcohol in the system) is lots of fun especially when sub sandwiches from McAllisters deli are in the fridge with potato salad.
Hate: That we don’t have more adult sleepovers.

Love: Allowing myself the day to clean the apartment from head to toe, resulting in a splendid lemon-fresh scent in the apartment. (I know the word choice of “Allowing,” is odd, but cleaning is my stress relief. Yes, I know… weird.)
Hate: Emptying the mop bucket. It’s always so gross.

Love: Talking to HB on my way home from Darling and Dad’s (final birthday celebration for Darling at Cheesecake) about our weekends. We made plans for Friday night.
Hate: Four days until it’s Friday.

Love: That I had such a glorious weekend…two days of parties, friends, cameras, top notch food and wine, music and dancing.
Hate: My writing skills aren’t fantastic enough to express how wonderful everything was.

    My writing skills at expressing my love and my thanks to you for all that you and Snarl and HM put together are sadly lacking because all I can think of is: awesome, special, tiptop fun, happily tearful, special, rich, love…and more love…and more love.

    I heart you all.
