I closed my eyes for a bit and woke up way too early. With that familiar adrenaline running through my veins.
I crept downstairs, turned the television to what else, but a horrible movie on LMN. And by horrible, I mean totally awesome!
Muffin is snoozin' right above me and I must say, I'm quite envious of her.
Because I actually would like to try and count some more sheep in a few, I will try and keep this quick.
Friday, I awoke well rested and ready to enjoy the day with this lovely lady.
We beat the crowd and met for an early lunch. Italian food, an over-sized booth (more appropriate for a romantic rendezvous) and pasta dishes that were *buy one, pick one free to take home with you*...
were the perfect start to our day.
After, we headed across the street to the mall to see what else we could get into. Because, Kelly and I can always find something to get into.
We tried on some lovely head gear.
We took a trip to the food court. But, not for more food. Rather, a few BIG laughs.
And then, Kelly came up with a brilliant idea...
*We should get our eyebrows waxed!*
I never ever had before.
I know, crazy right!?
I VERY desperately needed to, as I knew they could afford to lose a pound or two...
and were two totally different shapes.
So, in we walk to the salon. Kelly goes first. The pro that she is.
Then, it was my turn.
(and the bright blue gum adds a touch of class.)
With a few hundred snips, 203 waxy rips, and a million and 6 plucks, I had me some new brows.
I was in awe.
The end of a very happy Friday with Kelly!
And, thanks to the awesome girl who transformed my brows.
As soon as we walked into the salon, we knew we recognized one another. Turns out, she sold me my wedding dress. How neat is that! I have an appointment with her later next week for a hair cut. I haven't had my hair professionally cut in over 2 years! EEEkkks! I'm excited.
Friday night, Jessica and I hung out at her place. Our men had already planned a little shindig together, so we had the perfect excuse to catch up.
We got take-out and gabbed for hours. Still, leaving about 43 conversations unfinished. We do that so often. Begin one topic, which leads to another topic, to another...and another.
And, before we know it, we're talking about American Cheese for 28 minutes.
We were getting sleepy at this point.
But, not too sleepy for some fun photos. Jessica's boyfriend, Ed, is my funny-face twin. He loves to take pictures with me. And not just any pictures. Crazy, goofy, unflattering, sometimes immature (okay, very immature) photos.
Hey, it's good for the soul.
You gotta laugh at yourself.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
The next couple photos are from Friday night.
And no, I wasn't drinking.
See what I mean!? pure awesome-ness.
Steve needs this photo for his desk at work.
(okay, looks like this is not such a *quick* post after all.)
And with that, I will say good night to Friday.
And, Hello to Saturday.
Saturday was a day for catching up on lost sleep from the week past. Time for Steve and I to get stuff done around the house, and relax and be lazy at the same time. I cleaned a few offices. Came home, and got ready for a Girl's night...
It started with Girl's night in...talking and reminiscing over drinks, spinach n' artichoke dip and brownies.
a few wardrobe changes.
and a Muffin, who wanted in on the action.
Later, Jessica and I headed into town.
I probably should have said NO to that 2nd espresso martini.
On second thought, I'm glad I didn't.
It was great to let loose and have fun.
And we certainly did.
With the extra hour gained from Daylight Savings, we decided next on the list, was a little dancing/people watching. And after a night of many good times, we headed home.
Jessica slept over. The next morning, we had some pretty good laughs, recalling our night, over coffee and bagels (and Excedrin).
We were cracking up that I insisted Jessica take a bath before going to bed. I went on and on about how I take one every night and how amazing they were for the soul...
as I took out my favorite bath salts and towels and started the water for her.
Then, as I said goodnight, I told her I'd be taking a bath too, in our bedroom bathroom. Funny, because we only have a shower in there. Hmmm.
Steve laughed with us, as he had heard the whole "bath time" conversation from down the hallway.
Sunday, there was cleaning.
There was a much needed cat nap.
The sweetest cat nap, with company from the twinions.

Steve and I spent a quite night at home. Watched a movie. Caught up on some shows.
And, last night, called for the same kinda evening. This time of year, when the dark comes before night is truly here...
It just makes me want to hibernate once in a while. Stay in and be cozy. Put on pajamas before dinner.
And lounge with the Mr. and the fluffies.
If I don't stop myself, I will keep typing and typing away. I need to head upstairs and try and get back to bed for a few hours.
I'm wishing everyone a wonderful Tuesday!!
*I was all ready to write a post last Thursday night...
Let some more out...
But, I surprisingly was genuinely tired at a decent hour and needed to take advantage of it.
So, I'll see ya this Thursday!
Much love and a...
Good Night and Good Morning <3,
