We met Ann & Rob for dinner on the patio at Square One tonight. It was so good to catch up!
On the way home, we decided to stop at Union Station to check out the new ferris wheel.
And then we drove the 35 minutes home with the top down. It was a perfect night for it.
It was a great night. ❤️
We decided to eat under the gazebo because it’s hot af and the sun is a bitch.
And then we walked around the pond.
It was too hot for the frogs, but we saw a heron!
Here it is flying away:
Here’s what he looked like (not my pic obvi):
I loooooove it. I expect to love it even more after I style it myself tomorrow. I’m so glad I went through with it.
The best part of the day: lunch with my besties!!
I saw these gorgeous tulips on my walk this morning.
We went for a walk around the neighborhood. The weather today was incredible.
We also went out for drinks:
And then took this growler to dinner with C&J where we talked about all the things. I love them so much.
The day started off a little messy, but ended well. I am thankful for my husband and our awesome friends. (And also Xanax.) I feel loved, and seen. So thankful. ❤️
Last night, we went to dinner at Trailhead one last time before it officially becomes Schlafly. We spent a lot of time there early in our relationship, and so tribute had to be paid. I do think Schlafly will be a big improvement though. I’m looking forward to checking it out this summer.
That’s us outside the restaurant.
First of all, why are my friends so young? I guess D and I are just young at heart?
Anyway…last night we joined Nick, Nancy, Jen, & AK, for a night out in The Grove.
First up: pizza and beer at Urban Research Brewery; except I didn’t have pizza or beer. I had caesar salad and water. Turns out beer is quite acidic, and need to take a break from acidic shit right now. The caesar was actually quite delicious, which is high praise, because I’m a bit of a caesar connoisseur nowadays. Haha.
Afterwards, we headed a couple blocks down to Recess STL, which is a big warehouse that’s been turned into an adult game bar. We played hockey, and threw footballs at bowling pins, which is way more fun (and frustrating) than it sounds. It was super crowded though, so we eventually bailed, and headed back out to O’Fallon, where we all live. We went to the neighborhood pub for more food and drink. It was a lot of fun, and I think we can now call Jen & AK actual friends, instead of just acquaintances.
I had three gin and tonics, and a few hits of weed off Nick’s vape throughout the night, so I was pretty lit by the time we got home, where I then smoked more weed, because duh. From what I can recall, the sex was amazing. 🤗
There’s a group pic too, but I don’t have it. We were cute though. You’ll just have to take my word for it.
Yep…I not only went to a 30th birthday party, but also a Mormon birthday party. No booze – except for the 40 ounce my husband brought (lol). They did have caffeine, however, which is apparently a big deal.
Look how thrilled we are:
I promise it wasn’t always like that. ^^
I did have some fun. It was just awkward.
There was a piñata filled with like tums and pepto and other “old person stuff.” The birthday girl insisted I go first when it was time to break it. There’s a video, but I don’t feel like fucking with all of that.
Here is the aftermath:
We played Cards Against Humanity, which was apparently very scandalous and offensive to everyone except us. One dude refused to read his card because of the swear words. I felt like I was in the twilight zone.
But she is super sweet, and really likes me for reasons I have yet to figure out. We stayed a few hours, and then came home. I felt good about going. She was very excited, and I do want to expand our friendship. She and her husband really want to play D&D with us, so hopefully we can make that happen soon.
This party made me feel both very old and very cool. Haha.
We didn’t think we’d get to go this year, but then the surgery was canceled, and I woke up feeling better (ish) this morning, so we decided to get tickets.
We had a lot of fun. It was a fucking carb fest though. Oh well…back to it tomorrow.
D is going out of town tomorrow, so I’m especially glad we were able to do this today. ❤️
We went out tonight for dinner at our favorite seafood place, and then out for drinks at the local pub. It seemed like the right thing to do considering next weekend will be a bust (because surgery).
Gimme all the gin please.
J&M are out of town, but flirting quite a bit via text, and we’re quite besotted with them. They say all the right things. I enjoy that our two main couple crushes (J&M and C&J) are legitimately friends first. We’re going to invite both couples over for a party in the next month or so. Tonight J was like: we want to hang again asap, even if it’s just a vanilla get together. ❤️
D is absolutely wasted. Just got him to bed. The kids and pets are all situated. It’s 1:04 am and I’ve downed a Morning Recovery and am ready to pass out.
I love my life. ❤️❤️❤️
