Like Old Times

in All Posts

Good evening, everyone! I thought I’d slip in a quickie post before Future Husband, Lisette, Danny, and I go out.  We’re going to Coconut Grove (the trendy bar and club part of Miami, besides South Beach) for some brew-hahahas.  Obviously, I’ve pretty much been drinking non-stop since Thursday evening.


In fact, I’ve had more alcohol in three days than I probably have had in the last two months. It’s not that I feel guilty or anything for drinking, it’s just—not typical behavior for me anymore!  I used to drink so much (and so frequently) in college, which was the key factor in the 10 extra pounds I used to carry around! 


It’s fun to indulge with friends every now and then…. but I am looking forward to getting back to normal eating habits! 🙂


So, this afternoon Lisette and I played some Wii (soooo fun), drank a little wine, and consumed some Italian bread with EVOO dipping sauce.


And…. then we TOOK A NAP! When Lisette and I were in high school and college, we used to take naps together all the time… so it was kind of like old times!  Is that strange? I love snoozing with my friends–it kind of feels like a sleepover.    Napping together is better than napping alone! 🙂


After laying in bed for two hours, watching chick flicks, and sleeping off our hangovers, the husbands came home.  The football game went well (GO CANES!).


I had a small toasted sammie with turkey + cheese for dinner.  To squeeze some fruit in, I had a small banana, too.  I wasn’t too hungry after all the beer and snacks.


Side note: doesn’t Lisette have the most beautiful countertops? I’m super jealous!


OK — off to the bars!  I’ll post the shenanigans tomorrow, I’m sure! :)  Have a fun and safe evening.

    Have fun tonight!!
    I love your stories with your girlfriend. It so reminds me of times with one of my bff’s. We pretty much drink and eat our way around the city when we get together. So fun!

    I miss the Grove! I’m not sure how much fun Sandbar would be post college but I have fond memories!
