I feel like every weekend is really nuts for me at this point, what with us being like a month out from our wedding. Last week, this fear that no one would show up to our wedding overcame me, which one of my bridesmaids informed me was a normal fear. But now, all these last minute things are starting to come up and I’m just hoping that we can get it together. Whew.
So over the weekend, one of my bridesmaids, Ashley, came to spend some time with me. I think it was good, I needed some friend time, and she needed a break from her insane commute in Northern Virginia, so it all worked out amazingly.
So Ashley came in on Friday evening, and was able to stop by my job to see my new office, which I was really really excited to show her. One really cool thing about the weekend is that Ashley is going vegan, so instead of doing our usual where we eat everything in sight when she comes, we spent a lot of time snacking at the Whole Foods.
So anyhoo, that first night, we met up with Matthew, my former boss, and noshed on some salads and drinks. That night, we ended up at the Borough, and met new friends. I also saw a nose job nose in real life, and it was really scary.
Saturday, I ended up going to work for a little while, and teaching a Zumba® Fitness class where, because of the coffee I’d had earlier that morning, I sweated more than I think I’ve sweated teaching a class all summer. After a nap, I took Ashley the new vegan to the Remedy Diner, a diner downtown that incorporates a ton of vegan and vegetarian stuff in their menu. I can’t even tell you what I ate, but I know it was dang good – I’m trying to make it a point to try everything on the menu before we leave Raleigh at some point.
After delicious vegan things, we met up with friends for drinks, and proceeded to run around downtown like we were 22 again – we danced, I saw a bride leaving her wedding reception and I wished her well, and I didn’t go to bed until 3am.
I think sometimes when you’re grownup, you forget to stop and act like a crazy college student and actually have FUN on the weekends, so this weekend was a nice reminder to do that once in a while.
What did you do this weekend?
