Random Wednesday

I'M ALIVE!!! I know I've been MIA since last Friday, but honestly work this week has been kicking my bootay. I was already hard at work by 6:30 am yesterday... But to all of you who have commented, emailed, tweeted or text me just making sure I didn't get date raped over my weekend getaway - thank you! :)
First thing's first - My trip to Harrah's...we had an amazing time! It snowed like crazy on Saturday so it took us quite a bit longer than expected to arrive, but we managed to make a good time out of sitting in traffic for literally hours. The Jamey Johnson concert was so good! I only know like 2 of his songs, but he's really good live. Very mellow kind of country music. This is exactly what he looked like...pretty sure he wore the same outfit and all.
Plus he played Dixieland Delight which is one of my most favorite songs of all time so you know I acted a fool. I lost a little money, then won a little money then broke even so I was happy about that. The only picture I have to show you for now is my player's card from the casino. The other people we were with took all the pictures and I don't have them yet, but I will share them later.
It was a much more "comfortable" experience than I anticipated. I knew we would have fun but I was anxious about how comfortable I would feel. Not even an issue at all. I ate too much, gained back those 3 lbs I lost last week (UGH!), drank enough to tranquilize a small animal, but overall had a fabulous time! Don't get too excited though - me and this little boy toy are just friends! He's definitely a cutie and I enjoy spending time with him, but we'll just have to see how it plays out.
Not going into details with this...but...I had an actual conversation with Skye Sunday too. Nothing too major, but it did my heart a little bit of good - even though I've been over analyzing every single letter of our texts. I'm very thankful that I'm coming from a better place these days. I wouldn't say I'm "happy" yet, but I am content. This is a step in the right direction!
I'm getting back on my grind this week with operation look hot for Luke Bryan! I got off work a little early yesterday so I went for a run outside then went to Zumba later on. But I also had 2 bowls of Cinnamon Toast Crunch for dinner...oops! But serious face I gotta get ready for summer! The lake is just around the corner, which means so are bikinis - and that's a scary thought right now.
Things to look forward to today: Glitter Craft Night tonight with my best gal pal (wine & Chinese food included), Football Signing Day & Coach Jones's first signing class looks promising, Vols BBall playing GA tonight, HUMP DAY!

I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The leftover milk in the bowl is delicous.

I agree with you & the other girls that this week has been ridiculous. Glad to hear you had a good weekend though, and glitter craft night sounds fun.I just may have to participate from afar.

Girls night would not be the same without glitter, wine, and Chinese food!

Cassie said...

Beth Lane said...

I was just sitting here internally yelling at myself that I need to go home, put on my gym clothes and get my hiney to that place I have successfully avoided the past 5 months. I think I'd rather have wine and Chinese food though.

LB @ Table For One said... went with a boy?!?!?! How did I miss this??? Please EMAIL ME with all of the details. Every.Single.One. K. Thanks :) Operation look hot for Luke Bryan, I like that.

You aren't too far from me! I live in Franklin, NC which is only like 40 minutes from Harrahs. We go there all the time :)

Taylor @ Pink Heels Pink Truck said...

Girl, I wish I was going to LB concert with you!! You are going to have a blast!!
And who says anything serious has to come from having a boy toy?? That's what they're for...a toy. ;) lol (especially as long as he knows his status) ha!
Hang in there girlie!! You have a heart of gold and are a really good friend!! You deserve ONLY the best!!
