***Super long post ahead but …. all Asia posts are now updated with pictures!! It took a long while but I can say I did something productive this weekend …***
I cannot believe that we all go back to work tomorrow. This week went by too fast since there was something going on every day. But so thankful to be surrounded by loved ones. My family was all going to go to B’s and SIL’s for Thanksgiving this year since it’s their first holiday as a married couple and I was going to stay by myself. But they decided to come down instead since I had to attend a wedding this weekend.
Wednesday || I had work while the majority took the day off. Luckily I only had to work a few hours but since one of my coworkers needed help on her project, I stayed an extra to help her out. I then went all over buying wedding and birthday presents and cake. It was Mum’s birthday that night so I took her out along with Dad and June to Thai Cottage. We waited for B, SIL, Jenny, and Sammi to arrive to cut the cake. They brought along their little poopies, Krypto, Pluto, and Joey. The gang was soon to be back together.
Oh … and if anyone knows me very well personally knows I’m not a big lover of flowers. I mean, they’re pretty and everything, but they’re not something I would want anyone to waste their money on for me. I rather they donate that money to FTK or something. I might feel differently if it was someone I had strong feelings for and potentially love. But at the moment … not the case.
Thursday || The pup family together again. Uncle Rocky with their nephews, Krypto, Pluto, Bruno, Kato, and Rizzo. With Krypto and Pluto’s cousin, Joey.
I mostly just sat around working on random things (mostly stickers shopping) before prepping everything. We said smaller portions and we did make less dishes. But we someone still ended up with a lot of leftovers. The boys played video games afterward. If they were playing something cooler, I would of joined but instead, I went online to shop for Christmas presents. Check and check!
Friday || We went and ate sushi for a late brunch and everyone headed shopping while I headed to Kim’s to work on the blog to where all the pictures are finally uploaded to the Asia posts. Then later that night we went to dinner with some family members since they haven’t seen B and SIL since their wedding. Jenny and I were snapchatting Travis the whole time. It was nice to see how he’s been doing. Cantu even texted me and we talked about random things to where he asked why I seem to go to weddings every month … funny he mentioned that because …
Saturday || Amanda and Brent’s big day! I got ready and headed to Sugar Land to the church Amanda grew up in. She literally did everything in that church and now she got married there which I think is pretty cool. After the ceremony, we all headed to Brookshire for the reception. Look how perfect they are! I uploaded this on Facebook/Instagram and she loved it so much, it’s her profile picture! .. That makes me happy. Little things. haha
I was getting hit on by the bartender. The second time I went up to the bar his pickup line was “Where have you been? I never knew how much in love with legs I was until I saw you walk away. Those calves …” I wish I had a butch gay best friend to take to these things. This is my … crap, I don’t know anyone and I’m awkwardly all by myself and I’m trying to act like I actually have friends face. I am horrible at keeping in touch so I’m not close to any of Amanda’s friends like I was a few years back.
The bridesmaids I knew were busy with their duties. Luckily Will and Sara came stag so I hung out with them most of the time. Will is dancing with a beer in his back pocket … When Will complimented me on my calves later in the night, I almost threw up because all I saw was the creepy bartender’s face. haha It was a fun wedding with lots of line dancing. Thank goodness for Will’s outgoing personality. If it wasn’t for him or Amanda and Brent’s friend, I wouldn’t have danced the whole night. I had a dance with Will where he spun me left and right and dips and all that jazz. I asked if he’s ever spun so much that he’s thrown up to which he replied yes. haha
As if I wasn’t already happy seeing Amanda and Brent, the sweetest most caring couple I’ve ever met, tie the knot, I came home with packages! One of which is from Hong Kong! I miss them so much.
Sunday || I’ve been super lazy to where I stayed home all day laying around lazily with Rizzo.
Looking back at this weekend, it’s been a pretty sweet one. Two years ago an old friend tried to take her own life and she’s still here today. I even got an invitation to someone’s family event with whom I haven’t spoken to in a while. There is so much to be thankful for. For being alive. And I texted my happiness to the person I still always want to share my ups and downs with. I don’t do it anymore so I’m not too sure what came over me tonight. I know I’m hard to get along with at times, especially when my anxiety hits so, I’m thankful he’s still in my life after everything, along with everyone else.
Until next time,
