Since I last saw my BFF Sarah a year ago, she bought a real house with a real backyard and got engaged to a really nice man. Now, Iâ€™m staying in her guest room (which is JUST a guest room, not an office/junk/guest room) and loving life.
What can I say? I think weâ€™ve officially grown up.
But we still canâ€™t open wine bottles without assistanceâ€¦
Some things never change.
So, yes â€“ Iâ€™m spending the night in Winchester, Virginia at Sarahâ€™s house, and tomorrow, weâ€™re driving to Pittsburgh for her bachelorette.
Sarah picked me up at the airport, and then we grabbed a fast dinner. I opted for a veggie and cheese sub + BBQ chips:
Pennsylvanians might recognize this brand â€“ Utz! I saw it and nearly died of joy. They make the best potato chips.
We ate our food while watching her fiancÃ© play baseball for their companyâ€™s team. Unfortunately, lightening began to strike and the game got called off.
We ended up going to a pizza place near their house. I had 1 and 1/2 beers (Shock Top, a really great wheat beer!):
And after getting home, we cracked up a bottle of Riesling, sat on the front patio, and watched the thunderstorms roll in. It never actually rained, but the heat lightening was GORGEOUS. I think itâ€™s finally summer up north!
When did you â€˜grow up?â€™ I feel like I grew up when the then-boyfriend, now-Husband and I moved in with each other the week I graduated from college (yes, we â€œlived in sinâ€ for 2.5 years!).
