Happy Monday! How was your weekend?
After work on Saturday, I met up with one of my friends, Katherine, who was in Charlotte to celebrate her birthday. We went to high school together… band nerds for life, yo.
I realized after I uploaded this pic that the lighting makes it look like I’m missing my left eyebrow. I’m not, I promise.
So anyway, we met at Aria in Uptown, walked around the Epicentre for a bit and then hung out in Blackfinn. I realized during our escapades that 1) The Epicentre is a happening place on a Saturday night, 2) There is a place called Bubbles where girls dress up like playboy bunnies and it made me feel awkward, and 3) I’m way too old to be able to tolerate a bunch of drunk people stumbling around and running into me. Nonetheless, I had fun and it was good to see Katherine!
If you’re ever in the area and want to get a taste of the downtown life then I highly recommend trying out Aria. I’ve eaten there a handful of times and everything is always delicious.
I’m not sure what got into me on Sunday morning but I woke up at 6am and couldn’t fall back asleep. I guess my body is just getting into the habit of waking up earlier, which is unfortunate because sleeping in is pretty much my favorite thing ever. I guess it was probably for the best, though, because I was able to go grocery shopping and run a few errands while it was still early.
P.S.- you know your life as an adult is boring when getting a new tooth brush is exciting.
I’ve been trying to do a lot better with meal planning, so I sat down yesterday and made a list of our dinners this week. I tried to alternate days when we have chicken and also include some sides (because I’m always scrambling at the last minute with those).
I don’t have to work today and right now I’m just lounging around. It’s hard to get the day going when you have this to cuddle with:
The main thing on my agenda today is to cancel my gym membership. I’ve heard awful things about this process so I’m trying to mentally prepare myself. I’m cancelling because my current gym doesn’t have a pool, which is why I decided I’m definitely going to switch to the Y.
I hope you have a good start to your week
