I feel like Labor Day Weekend lasted an entire week, that's how busy we were. I drank my weight in Strawberitas and ate to my heart's content. I saw so many people and had such a great time, I wish it could have all lasted another couple of days. But alas, 'tis Tuesday, and it's time to return back to the grind.
Friday night Bradley and I road tripped down to St. Louis for
I was so stoked about meeting some of the bloggers that Holly mentioned were going to be there, I was giddy the entire car ride down. After we'd been there for a while and I'd had a few drinks in me, I asked Holly to introduce me to Mel, Jennifer, and Tim. I obviously needed to bring my A-game to talk to these people that I creep on daily. The only way to do that was through Strawberitas and vodka gummy bears. I also had to coach myself to call them by their real names and not missmel_joy, FatChick2FitChick, and Timbobbbb like their Instagram names. Very serious business.
My only regret is not getting a picture with Jennifer and Tim. But after Bradley took my picture with Holly, Chris, and Mel he looked through them and said "These pictures should have been taken about 6 hours ago." Really? Last time I checked you don't look so pretty after you've been drinking either Bradley. He would pay for that comment with the massive hangover he received after attending a bachelor party Saturday night. Muah-ha-ha-ha-ha.
So, Saturday we drove home early from STL so that Bradley could attend his friend's bachelor party. I spent the afternoon catching up on my DVR, and I'm finally caught up on all the Housewive's except Miami. Hallelujah! Saturday night I had dinner and drinks with some of my friends and waited for the hot mess express to get dropped off by the party bus.
Sunday I had to listen to Bradley whine and complain about his hangover pretty much all day long. Then he finally perked up a little bit in the evening, so I decided repay him for driving me nuts by drinking Strawberitas in front of him and making him watch Mean Girls. With Chordie snuggled up in between us, it was a lovely way to end the evening with my little family.
I finally got to see D,K, & G as well. It had been a week since I had seen them last, which is the longest I've ever gone without seeing them since the day they were born. This new job thing definitely has its drawbacks sometimes. When I pulled up, D & K ran over and were waiting by my door to give me hugs & kisses. G has to be difficult, and won't openly give anyone affection without them working for it. So when I walked up to him to say hi and give him hugs & kisses, he threw a wet rag at me. The new job thing definitely has its perks as well.
Skinny Meg's diet bet, and encouraged me to join. I've never done a diet bet before, but Holly was telling us about it on Friday night. Basically, you go to this website and pay the entry fee, upload your before picture and a picture of your weight on the scale, and in 28 days if you lose 4% of your body weight or more, you get to split the pot. So I convinced Bradley to jump on board as well and now we're both doing Skinny Meg's Diet bet.
I hope everyone had an awesome Labor Day weekend! Has anyone else ever done a diet bet? How did it work out for you?
