Yesterday at work flew by because I was in meetings again for half the day. I did make it to the gym in the morning and was aggressive when I decided I was going to climb Taipei 101 on the Stairmaster. I was feeling a little weird and I think my playlist reflects that! I mean I watched all the good parts of Sister Act pretty much!
I think I needed to see my girls. I know I saw them on Saturday and Sunday but I was still so stressed out that I wasn’t really “there” when we hung out. Last night though it was a girls night in as we sat around eating sushi and planning my friends bachelorette party.
|So good! I couldn’t finish it all though|
Like everything else so far she has been so easy going and up to suggestions that it made this a breeze. When we went to pick out her dresses I was excited because it was the first time we were going to look and I couldn’t wait to see the styles that she was going to try on, yet in the back of my mind I was also dreading the million other times we would go out and do this. The first place we went to was very small and the lady helping her I didn’t like at all. She tried on a few dresses and they were all pretty but nothing that really screamed the one. The second place we went to there were tons of selections and on the third dress she found it. We then also tried on about five or six bridesmaids dresses and found ours too. In less than three hours we were done with the dress shopping. I couldn’t believe it.
Planning her bachelorette party was pretty much the same experience. Four of us were sitting around thinking of ideas and we settled on Newport, RI in less than an hour. The rest of the time was sitting around discussing things to do when we are down there. Though we only hung out for around two hours, it was something I just needed, and by the time I made it back to the boyfriend’s apartment I was finally calmed down internally. Not jumping at every siren I heard or flying up if a remote dropped on the floor. It was like I finally exhaled after holding my breath for a long time.
Like I’ve said a million times, I love my family and I love my friends (and now even the boyfriend) but there is nothing like time with my girlfriends and there never will be.
As promised, playlists from this weekend:
|Sunday’s Good Pace Run|
Where do/did you want your bachelor/ette party to be? Did you get that if you had one?
Funny, I plan a lot of my life in my head, but this is something I’ve never given a thought to.
