Hoping that your Monday is going well, despite the horrid cold front–that is once again, making it’s way through the east coast. Now that I’ve finally had some time to sit in front of my laptop, I can tell you about my adventurous spring break!
(Except, not quite)
Due to my responsibility of being a mom, I’m limited to certain “adventures” that I can partake in, but nonetheless my week was a good one.
My spring break started off great with going to watch my favorite artist over in DC, Ellie Goulding. She’s a mix of electronic/dance with a softer genre and I do recommend checking her out!
I stood in the same spot for about 4 to 5 hours with my sister but I can truly say it was worth it, Ellie was simply phenomenal, we were even pretty close to the stage making the experience a unforgettable one. The aftermath of the show, for lack of a better word, an extremely frigid one.
Yes, on Sunday the 16th of March we had one of the bigger snowstorms we’ve received from our hormonal Mother Nature this whole winter. Not only that, but due to my parents’ love and worrying tendencies, we were stranded outside of the venue for an approximate hour and twenty minutes. thank you Echostage for your warm hospitality. (Ha! I’m punny and sarcastic!)
It was snowing, hard and we were covered in snow within minutes.
I was grateful for bringing a jacket and glad that I had more common sense than most of the teenage girls who showed up in heels and mini dresses, brrr.
I’m guessing they don’t watch the weather channel as much as I do.
So we stuck around with 30year-oldesque women who were inebriated and very much amusing until our mother arrived to pick us up.
Did I mention both of our phones had lost all battery power?
It also took us about the same time we waited outside for us to get home. Normally we would’ve arrived after a 45 minute ride, but again, Mother Nature has been quite PMSy this winter.
That was quite the adventure.
Now Monday was pretty boring as I did nothing, so we’ll skip the average day and stick to the rest of the week.
On Tuesday, the “bae” as my peers like to call it, an acronym for “before anyone else” or also known as “significant other” came over for a few hours and spent time with Cody and I, later tagging along to get materials at Michael’s craft store. Where we got craft paint for a small stool I wanted to decorate to help Cody reach the bottom story bathroom sink. (whew what a mouthful)
I then painted it on Wednesday, with a “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” theme in which I can boast about because it’s quite adorable.
Here is a four-sided picture of the crate
Later that night, once Cody was put to bed, I went over to A’s house and played video games, ate dinner and watched a movie. Which was later repeated on Thursday and Saturday. Except Saturday, I did some homework and took a nap.
On Friday, I was over at my boyfriend, A’s house again and got a migraine, unfortunately, but he’s wonderful enough to make me food and headed out to meet my best friend for her birthday dinner.
It was fun watching her have her first official drink at a restaurant and also enjoy the company of some new and old friends.
It’s always fun to be surrounded by people your age when your best friend is your 3year old toddler (hehe!)
After the dinner, A and I went to watch the new movie Divergent (which was really good, although a few things were left out from the novel), his mom and dad met us there to watch it with us, which is always interesting!
Finally, Sunday was a well spent day with family relaxing at home, trying out a new Korean restaurant and getting shampoo at the mall.
Overall spring break rating 4/5 stars.
I think I’d much rather spend time with people I care about than wake up hungover with strangers.
But that’s just me!
Enjoy the rest of your afternoon! it’s back to school tonight for me.
