Goodness people, it has been a week. I honestly can’t believe that summer school is over (last Thursday–it was bittersweet) and that now all I’m doing with my life is nannying. I feel like I should relish in the idea of having some free time, but as we all know, I like my life to be filled to the brim. Anyway, Sunday I went to see Shakespeare in the Park with my aunt; last year was our first year going so clearly we were professionals this year. How does one become a professional in watching outdoor theatre, Meagan? I’m just so glad you asked! Basically it meant that we rented those goofy little lawn chairs instead on sitting on the ground and snacked on wine, grapes, cheese, carrots, hummus and crackers; clearly we were high balling. It was a fabulous time, and a tradition that I hope we continue.
Monday-Wednesday I got my baby fix; seriously y’all, she is just too much. We discovered that baby girl hates when you blow in her face, she actually tenses up, sticks her tongue out and stiffens her body into a little ‘T’ shape; it’s hysterical and she giggles and will unfreeze as soon as you stop. Then I had my first full day off on Thursday. It was a super legitimate day off, the ‘I sat in my PJs and watched NCIS and then eventually went to the gym’ kind of day. It was truly lovely…however I hope I don’t have too many more days like that as they get a little redundant.
This gets us to yesterday and today. Seeing as how it was Friday and I didn’t have anything super huge planned, I went on a minor shopping spree bcaaaaaaaaaaaaause–wait for it–I am one full percentage down on body fat and BMI! Clearly this was cause for celebration hence the new skirt, shirt, swim suit and face scrubber (really that was more in support of a friend, but still an excellent purchase). I also went to the gym– of course– BUT I also went out last night. I can sense your disappointment after a bolded, italicized and all caps word, however I’m not finished. Where did I go, you ask. Well, I went out to the local gayborhood! *note, that’s how it was presented to me, it is by no means a slur or meant to be offensive* My goodness, I had the absolute best, best time. There was fantastic people watching to pair with phenomenal company; I really couldn’t have asked for a better Friday night. I also went to my first drag show and one of the ladies (I wish I could remember her name, she was fantastic) complimented my purse, tried to pilfer said purse, and then told me I was super pretty a few times…let’s face it, those ladies know a thing or two about how to dress up and look nice (some more successfully than others) but I’ll take that compliment, proudly. Anyway, I think I’m going to Austin in a weekend or so to see my friend’s show; he’s rapidly becoming one of my favorite people and I am just thrilled beyond belief that we’re hanging out outside of Zumba. Y’all know how I get about people who I feel predestined to be friends with, he was one that I just knew would make an excellent friend and I have not been wrong, yahtzee.
Now it’s time for me to kick it into gear because in less than an hour we are leaving for a girl’s weekend by the lake and hot springs. I’m hoping for an amazing time, but I feel as though interesting might end up being a better descriptor, regardless, I’ll fill you all in when I get back. I’m going to leave you with this thought that I had yesterday: “Try something new everyday. It doesn’t have to be huge or groundbreaking, but life is too short and full of fabulous things that it seems silly not to experience something new daily.” These are words I’m trying hard to live by because I don’t to have those ‘man, I wish I had done that’ moments, so take them or leave them, either way, you’ve already read them ;-)
