[this post turned out a lot longer than i anticipated, oops]
so my last two weekends have been a bit well drunken. and i needed a serious break.
which doesn't mean i sat at home all weekend - it just means i didn't fall off any bar stools or send drunken text messages.
friday night i headed out to westlake to shop a bit at crocker park with my dear friend poo poo who was in from chicago. we perused baby gap prepping for her for the birth of the baby that is now growing in her belly. yes, poo poo is having a baby!
which meant no boozing for us. considering i was still a bit hung from the night before i was more than fine with that. instead we got pizza by robert and hung out with her parents, sister and the beav. we visited - it's nice just to visit.
poo poo also made me do my "predict the sex of the baby" trick that i do. remember how i'm undefeated? i say it's a boy. guess we will just have to wait and see, won't we?
saturday morning i woke up uber early and wrote my blogsecret post to send to nilsa for tuesday's big swap. (can't wait, btw)
hopped in the yuppie mobile and headed to grosse pointe, michigan (right outside of detroit) to visit my old college roommate and very dear friend d-ray, her husband terry and their baby eleanor! i love visiting the bubble and need to make the short trip more often.
upon my arrival i pretty much just starred at and played with the babe. i love her, seriously she is the happiest baby i've ever seen. she's a little spazz though, just like her auntie alexa.
and i don't care how many of my friends are popping out kids these days - it's still a bit surreal to me. it's like one day you're doing jagger bombs and the next day you are a parent and saving for a college education.
we got carry out from this amazing italian place after the baby went to bed and drank a lot of wine, just gossiping and visiting. apparently i'm really into visiting these days. sunday morning we went to breakfast with her parents and visited (again) with her sister and her kids - who are all doing well. i seriously adore that whole family. thanks for having me d-ray! xoxo
after saying goodbye i hopped in the yuppie mobile again to drive back to cleveland. this time it just took a bit longer than expected. it was whiteout snowing and friggin' interstate 75 is closed all throughout downtown detroit. after literally looping around the city 3 times and ended up at some generic gas station where i asked a toothless homeless man for directions. no fear.
instead of going straight home i stopped by the beav's condo and hung out with her and the giff, (who got engaged last weekend, hip hop horray!). we ate pizza, again, and the beav and i went and saw zack and miri make a porno which was surprisingly sweet, funny and porn-tastic. and seth rogan, you can be my boyfriend any day.
this was one of the best weekends i've had in awhile thanks to my besties, and i didn't even step foot into a bar. although i'm probably going to be itching to go out during the week...
monday night browns/bills football watching anyone? : )
