Something has been missing for the last month or two.
Sure, I’ve been living my life. Doing my thing. Keeping busy. Staying social.
But something has been missing.
Oh yeah… it’s THIS girl:
Oh heeeey, Mon! I found you!
That’s right, it’s been far too long since this girl and I had a night out on the town. We’ve both been busy doing this, that, or the other, and it’s been over a month since we’ve had a proper “hang out”.
So after Mon accepted a new job this week, we decided to put an end to this nonsense and go out for a proper celebration!
For future reference, when I say “proper celebration”, I mean consumption of food and drinks.
We checked out Emmett’s Brewing Company- a brewery and restaurant near my old stomping grounds.
Ironically, we split a bottle of wine versus check out the beer selection. Brewery visit fail.
And when I say “old stomping grounds”, I mean in the vicinity of where I lived for two years and right across the street from one of my favorite bars-
Our favorite cover band. So convenient.
What’s not convenient is how uncomfortable my heels got after 3 hours of dancing. At the end, I questioned which would be worse- continuing to stay in the platform heels or having my feet touch the floor of the bar.
I stayed in those heels. But I wasn’t happy about it.
The dancing easily counted as my physical activity on Friday. The rest from the gym was necessary. And so was the rocking out to their version of my happy song, “500 Miles”.
It made the late night drive thru that much more satisfying.
And the sleeping in that much more great.
Excuse me while I go pour more coffee and properly sprawl out on the couch again for a while.
Just don’t tell my mom you caught me with my feet on the furniture. It IS Mother’s Day, afterall…
