So What Wednesday

I haven't linked up in a couple of weeks, but I'm here! Shannon's weekly link-up at Life After I "Dew" makes my life a little easier to blog in bullet point.

So WHAT if...

  • Feel like hammered dog shit today? I've had a tad of a cold with sinus pressure and a post-nasal drip caused sore throat that culminated in me waking up at 5:30am today with a raging headache.
  • I managed to not look like hammered dog shit? Thankfully I laid out my clothes last night and popped in the shower this morning hoping the steam and heat would make me look a little better.
  • I am done decorating for Christmas? Not by choice, but my only decorations I got from Colorado pertained to my tree. Whatever. It's done.
  • I have to stop working at 5:00pm tonight? They are doing maintenance on some IT stuff, so that means I have an excuse to duck out.
  • I need a nap at 9:30am? See the first bullet point.
Go link up with Shannon and say your SO WHATs!

Sometimes I Don't Get My Mom...

...but my mom always gets me.

Case in point:

While I'm back in Colorado for Thanksgiving, I decided that a night on the town was in order. I didn't go out while I was in town in September, so a Rio margarita must be consumed on this trip. In addition, BFFL (best friend fo liiiiifeee) Daisy celebrated her final year in her 20s since I last saw her. Clearly, there should be a celebration.

That led to this email string:

From: Ana
To: Daisy
Subject: Hitting Up Both of Your Emails…
...since I don't know what one you'll check most often whilst working.

Anyway, I'm going to be in town the 18th - 23rd. I have two goals that week: 1) to celebrate your birth with a meal and possible cocktail, and 2) to see people that I want to (which includes you, the mister, and others).

With that in mind, I propose a dinner with at least you and, if you would like, a handful of other people. THEN, invite more people out for drinks, hangout-ness after. One-stop-shop, if you will.

What do you think? What night is best for you? Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday? I know the bars are hoppin' on Wednesday night... 

From: Daisy
To: Ana
Subject: Hitting Up Both of Your Emails…
Yes, liking it…as always.

Let’s do Wednesday night, actually. Night before a holiday may actually produce a somewhat rowdy crowd.  Who doesn’t want to be hung over on Thanksgiving day?

How about you pick who you would like for dinner so you can have one-on-one time. The rest we’ll invite for drinks afterwards. 

From: Ana
To: Daisy
Subject: Hitting Up Both of Your Emails…
For Wednesday dinner, I was thinking you, me, Jess. Yes, that limited. Then we can meet up with people for margaritas to start at Rio. Hell, we could do dinner at the Rio. I want chips and guac. We can even do post-work to get more of a crowd. Call it Boozegiving. 

Screw it. 

We're doing Boozegiving. Everyone's invited, only your attendance is compulsory. I'll be there. And maybe with my mom as DD for me. No joke.

It's happening. Look out for the facebook invite.

That's how I roll.

From: Daisy
To: Ana
Subject: RE: Hitting Up Both of Your Emails…
At first I was only thinking of suggesting Jess as the other invitee for dinner, but your plan for Boozegiving sounds good too – how you roll is how I roll. 

BTW, if I sent my mom an email like the one you did Momma Jane wouldn’t even know how to respond…especially since she doesn’t have an email address!!!! Hahahaha!

Love all your plans – Rio in a week!!!

Now, you're fine and dandy with Boozegiving, right? Well did any one read this line, "...We're doing Boozegiving. Everyone's invited, only your attendance is compulsory. I'll be there. And maybe with my mom as DD for me. No joke..."


That happened.

As evidenced by this email string:

From: Your Daughter
To: Mama Sandy
Subject: So, I know I’m almost 30, but…
...a taxi from Denver is $40...

Feel like being my DD on Wednesday? I'm going to meet up for drinks with people and wanted to make sure that I get home, obvio. If you're working that day, I can take you to work and switch out when you're ready to go home.

In fact, join us for a round. Who can say no to tequila? Or at least chips & guac?

From: Mama Sandy
To: Favorite Daughter
Subject: RE: So, I know I’m almost 30, but…
I’m taking the whole week off with an occasional conference call thrown in. DD is fine and dandy and will carry Tupperware in case you feel the need to vomit!


Is why she always gets me.

The Tupperware is because there have been a couple of days that succeeded drinking nights with family events. It's a little rough. Tequila shots es no bueno.

Also, I somehow have found that if I travel for Thanksgiving, the night before I leave is some sort of celebration. See Friendsgiving, Sherer's Wedding. Sunday? Is gonna be rough. But that's a whole other blog post.

So What Wednesday

Linking up with Shannon at Life After I "Dew"  and saying SO WHAT!

So WHAT if...

  • I am UHB. Sessed. with Made in Chelsea? It's a British import that is basically The Hills, but with accents. So, naturally, I'm in love.
  • I am mentally packing for my trip to Colorado? Packing takes some thought to coordinate space allotments for carry-ons.
  • In mentally packing for Colorado, I immediately have NOTHING to wear? I don't want to have to do laundry before I leave.
  • I got a pair of orange, suede, shearling "loafers"? I use loafers loosely since they rang up as slippers.
  • I am not ashamed to wear my slipfers? They have a sole and when they are on, you can't tell that they are comfortable, shearling heaven shoes.
  • I took to the Twitter for shopping advice? It's the fastest way to find the best deal for whatever I'm looking for...HELLO $23 jewel-tone leggings.
  • I'm uber nervous about cooking the turkey for Friendsgiving? The turkey has been in the fridge defrosting for three days and this sucker is rock solid still.
  • I decided I needed a Boozegiving in Colorado? I'm missing the Colorado Edition of Friendgiving, so I'm getting together on the other traditional holidays for a random Wednesday night adult beverage night out.
  • I'm obsessed with a makeup blog I found on Pinterest? Do yourself a favor and go to MaskCara and watch all of her tutorials, read her tips, and work your own magic.
  • I'm perfecting HACing? Her blog is evidence enough, but once you try it on your own, you're hooked.
