wow, i have really fallen off the blog wagon. i had a whole weekend to myself and while i planned to spend some time on this here blog, i didn't.
we had plans to go to the cottage but i bailed last minute. kayla and my husband still went and i used the excuse of my friend, who is moving to another province and throwing a last minute farewell party, to stay. not proud of it but i was dreading the weekend and when you dread going some place, you know it won't be a good time so why ruin it for everyone? there's nothing worse than being around someone who is going to be all mopey because she doesn't want to be there. i was simply putting the feelings of others ahead of my own, amirite?
also, my uterus was acting like an asshole and then i got my period so shark week when i'm not in the comfort of my own home? this would have been the weekend:
so what did i do exactly?
hung out with friends, got a facial at one of my favorite clinics, napped a whole lot and fell in love with reading again. just what the doctor ordered after these past few bullshit crazy months at work.
on friday, my husband and i had the day off because fuck work. i also gave him a huge boner by agreeing to go out for a ride with him. you know you're a douchehole bro when you get offended that you're not venturing out of the neighbourhood and you yell at him "bitch, please! why are you taking me for a lame neighbourhood ride? i'm WAY more conditioned than this so take me on a legit ride, brah!". or something to that effect. we did 21.5K (with hills and shit!) in 1hr; not bad for a newbie on a cheapass mountain bike.
later that night, i met up with my favorite ladies for a scrumptious meal and the best part? i actually broke my "one dessert a year" rule and stuffed this into my face:
this is my ultimate favorite dessert called Sago Sago - tapicoa with coconut milk and some kind of mouthgasmic syrup. i had never been so excited to have balls in my mouth. one other thing to note: we all typically share our food but that night i was a selfish bitch because goddammit, i eat this ONCE A YEAR so give a bitch a break. afterwards, they joked about how i didn't even offer it to anyone and i laughed and shrugged because it was 100% true.
during my friend's farewell party on saturday night, this was the only photo that was captured. a large part of why i rarely post weekend pictures/updates, especially when i'm out with friends, is that we all forget to take pictures. we're always so busy eating, talking, laughing and catching up that our phones are forgotten in our purse.
remember how i said i wanted to get back into reading but was having trouble because reading on a tablet that's 1 app away from the internet was too distracting? i was digging through my old pile of books, came across this gem and started re-reading it. haven't been able to stop since. i then drove my ass to the library, got another card and put a shit ton of books on hold. let the reading frenzy begin. now, please give me your all-time fav book recos; as in shit that you've read multiple times because they're so damn good. and none of that harry potter bidness; i tried and just couldn't get into it #sorrynotsorry.
and finally, on to other bloggy things: did you see the two new lovely ladies on my side bar? there's Iva of Yes I'm Crazy. i think of all the blogs i follow, i actually learn shit from her; like legit scientific shit. bitch needs to post more so i can be all smarty pants.
and then there's Mariah of Food Booze and Baggage. she posts the most divine things about food and booze, two of my favorite things and often from other places that i've never visited which is an added bonus.
what have you been up to?
have you fallen off the bloggy wagon too?
don't forget about wednesday's humpday confessions where we can hump this gorgeous man's face as we spill our secrets!
