About last night: Nick’s 35th birthday

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.

About last night: the Mormon’s 30th birthday party

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.

About last night: impromptu date night

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. ❤️❤️❤️

Get in the picture!

Me and the girl crush. Also named Jen.

We had a fabulous time tonight. I think this is the beginning of a fun friendship. ❤️

D and I had pre drinks at Charleville. We met Jen and Matt at Hamilton. Then we had after dinner drinks at Scottish Arms. She and I kissed and…swoon. Omg!! And then there was a mini make out swap session before we parted ways. It was all so hot and fun and perfect. Can’t wait for next time. Shit is gonna get real.

Between these two and C&J…I feel like we are finally friends with couples we truly mesh with. ❤️
