Sometimes you need to take a breath of fresh air and step away from the computer. But then you come back and see all the wonderful things people have been up to and it motivates you even more to believe in yourself and be yourself.
This Monday was a rush rush of work, emails, and deadlines. My mind wandered to the past weekend and exciting things to come...
#1) - The photo of a lady gazing at the Effiel tower has always been a favorite of mine and maybe just maybe I'll get to see that wonderful view. My best friend Danielle and I have decided that for our 30th birthdays WE ARE GOING TO GO TO PARIS, FRANCE!! We are turning 28 this year so I think that's more than enough time to save up and dream of french macrons and find the perfect beret to wear!!
#2.) - Let's face facts here...For any wedding, Either the Future Bride or the Future Groom will be LATE to the Rehearsal dinner. I have never been to one where both have arrived on time and it's okay. This past Saturday was the Church Rehearsal & dinner for my friend's wedding and the future groom was late. At least he showed up though...for my cousin's wedding...neither him nor his now-wife showed up to the dinner. Yea, it was awkward as hell.
#3.) - The Lucky One - For starters, let's just say after "A Walk to Remember" & "The Notebook" I've pretty much ruled out EVER watching a Nicholas Sparks movie again. I didn't think my emotions could handle it. But then the Librarian saw me have this movie in my hand and she jumped for joy. She was like "Oh I just love LOVED that movie. It was so good. It's not exactly like his other movies. It's so much better." I'm not giving away the ending but it's a great lil love story that does make you cry but in a good way. I promise. =)
#4.) - All the things we do for love...Well, I'm going to see Rancid, the ska punk rock band this June and I'm actually pretty excited about it. I can't wait to see Craig in guyliner and be all punked out for the rock show. I might have to dust off a corset and my combat Hot Topic boots for it too!! The energy of this rock show is going to be insane! I will be bringing ear plugs though!!
#5.) - My friend's wedding is finally here on Friday. This is the wedding I helped plan the Cinderella themed bridal shower for & the other lil dramas that ensued. The bridesmaid dress still fits thank god! I really hope they are happy. There are a few secrets on my friend's side she hasn't told her future husband and it does bug me but it's not my fight. I'm going to try and look at the positives and be there for my friend to ensure she has a great day. *Fingers Crossed*
Here's hoping for a better week! Oh and Happy Earth Day everyone. If you can, try to use one less styrofoam cup for coffee a day, remember to cut the soda can 6-pack plastic rings so an animal may not get caught, plant a flower or a tree in your backyard if you can, don't litter - use a trash can, and remember to go outside and enjoy the beautiful sun on the days that you can! =)
