My weekend, starting with the end of my workday today, is PACKED! One of the amazing aspects of moving out to Houston is all of the friends I have here and all of the fun things to do. It is seriously a 180 from my life in Florida (as of when I left) and although it limits my ability to unpack all of the boxes in my apartment in a timely manner (ridiculously minor as the only downside), I am loving my new social life! Here's the plan:
amazing chairs at a nearby antique shop. Keep your fingers crossed that they're as awesome as they look! After that I'm headed to a friend's house for our monthly (nerdy) game night. I had never played most of the games before (like Settlers of Catan, which made a hysterical cameo on Big Bang Theory last night), but I'm having a blast learning them and it's a fun, inexpensive way to spend quality time with friends. B has demanded that after game night I head over to her place to continue our Dexter marathon with season 5.
IKEA run. I already have more furniture than I can handle, so for me it's going to mostly be an accessorizing trip: cabinet pulls, a rug, curtain rods, some decorative vases, etc. After that I head home and get all gussied up for a night out on the town in Galveston with J and B. We're going out for dinner and then seeing a performance of Spamalot! I'm sure afterwards there will likely be drinks involved too...
Lululemon. Anthropologie and BHLDN are across the street so I'll likely be making a side trip there as well, time permitting. Then I'm headed back to L's house for the first monthly craft night! There are 5 of us (although B is bowing out this month due to the NFL playoffs) that are going to trade off houses monthly and have a potluck snack/crafting session that I'm really looking forward to! This week it's shrinky dink accessories and knitting!
Phew, it's going to be a fun, but exhausting, weekend!
