Party Animals!

Standard

This weekend was full of mischief and fun.  In leu of Thanksgiving, my friends had a get-together.  It ended up being a great feast.  We all got our best dishes together, drinks of choice, and all while wearing our “business casual”.  It was amazing.  This time the men were in the kitchen while the girls were sitting down relaxing.  It was great.

I was really proud of the boys for all they did to put this celebration on….it was quite the deal!  We all arrived between 4 and the time to which we were scheduled to eat (7pm).  From there, everything escalated!

Dinner was great.  Who am I kidding?  Dinner was great!  After dinner we all played games and danced and drank the night away.  I just wanted to say, for the record, that I behaved myself…but, my lovely friends well….can’t say they did the same.  There were games where I got to wear a Referee jersey and break up the fights.  I also got to sit and laugh at their stupidity.  I even had one friend tell me that if he thought eventually we–meaning he and I–would get together.  Ha I just laughed!  They are regular party animals.

I do love to laugh and my boys always know how to make me laugh until the tears roll….  The night continued to go on as the boys begun to blare the music (Journey mind you!) and proceeded to dance on tables.  What dorks?!  They looked like drunk sailors stumbling on the coffee tables…It was something out of a bad 80’s movie! They danced, sang and drank until about 3am in the morning.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kq5HBSlgI00 The party was still going on loud and proud until I left.

One thing about these boys is that I can only handle them in little doses.  They are fabulous in little spurts.  They can be sweet but then, after a whole night of harassment….it is enough for another 10 years.  They can cook, they can drink and boy they can be weirdos but when it comes down to it they have good hearts and good intentions (most of the time).  The mean well.

Let me ask you all something…what is the most ridiculous thing your friends have done?   It seems like my dears are always doing something crazy but, that is what keeps me laughing and life moving on!  🙂

Keep your head up and keep on pressing forward whether you’re a party animal or not! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmrOB_q3tjo&feature=branded

A little bit of ME time…

Standard

I began my weekend with a movie with a dear friend.  We saw Hereafter, which was amazing.  Then after I met out with some friends at a place called The Rusty Spur.  Last night, I danced like crazy!  I took on the persona of a sexy cow girl drinking my Beam and Coke.  I was complimented on my smile by a complete stranger (how simply amazing is that?), told that I looked cute and confident, told by a friend from HS that my Facebook statuses were something that she could really look forward to and over all it was just enough to keep my spirits up on cloud nine.  🙂  I was simply amazed at what a great impact on my spirit.

I must say today was one of the most rewarding days for me in succession with last night.  Today, I finally felt satisfied.  This never happens.  My little cheerleaders took 1st place at their state competition.  They did so well and I was so glad to see the stress and hard work pay off.  I have provided their link:  

.  This has been the biggest stress as of lately.  Between the girls attitudes, having to discipline, condition, and shout thru things–it became exhausting.  All of my emotions, all of my energy, and time placed into helping develop these girls and finally it has been rewarded in their eyes, their parent’s eyes, and my eyes.  🙂

We had the best ride home in the world.  I am pretty sure that we all were the talk of many dinner conversations due to our craziness.  We were listening to music or all kinds, getting truckers to honk at us, and over all singing our little lungs out.  I have no voice now because of it.  We were laughing, and over all just enjoying each other’s company.  When we got in, I went and got my nails done with my best girl friend.   It was so nice seeing her.  So pleasant  🙂

Currently, I am watching Love Actually.  What a beautiful movie!  It gives me such great hope.  I cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings  🙂

And so tonight, I sit and ponder what little changes those bits of encouragement have made in my life and wonder how might I return the favor to help my friends feel the same way!  What a precious gift!

Peace and love  🙂
