el festival del amor

February 17, 2014

This weekend was all sorts of love, love, love which was fitting for the holiday that kicked it off. My brain is one big fuzz bucket right now, but I'm hoping that in attempting to string a bunch of words together for this post I'll be able to hit the ground running on all those projects I have due today (AKA I'm procrastinating). 

Friday was just a wonderful night of working. We had 40+ reservations, and a wait time of 2 hours. It was joyous. It was crazy. Some waitresses stole tables. Some waitresses got fired. And this waitress ended up opening....and closing. So after six hours of craze, these, a big box of chocolate and a tall glass of lemonade were a welcome sight.

Though I'm already starting to get emotional about the fact that in a few days they'll be gone. #valentineshangover

And then after that we had some thrilling ENGAGEMENT NEWS. Little bastard gets her BBQ pizza for the rest of his life, dammit. But I have a standing dinner invite, so it's all good. And they'll still do #livedating with me. 

I remember being this warm once. 

And then there was a BABY! 

And then while I was holding said baby, I ran into one of my other sisters and we said "Hey, no-longer-pregnant sister, thanks for giving us this excuse to conveniently meet and ditch this baby shack in lieu of CHOCOLATY GOODNESS (and three cups of coffee)."

So there you have it. A weekend of love overload. Peluches. Friends. Babies. Sisters. Everything. We got it all covered. And yet I still don't want to go start my homework...

What was the highlight of your weekend?

  1. I'm feeling a Valentine hangover just from reading this. SO MUCH LOVE AND CHOCOLATE.

  2. Yay! I'm engaged!

    I didn't realize that my BBQ chicken pizza had made such an impression! FYI Mike is jealous because I still haven't made it for him... Maybe I can keep that just between us ;)

    Also, will it be inappropriate to play ride the bus after I'm married?? #lifequestions
