Here it is, the dreaded " I have no prompt for this day so what do I say?" weekend post. But then I realized that I had been blogging withOUT a prompt since I started rambling on this thing, and then I felt silly for stressing over a lack of structure.
Last night was one of those nights that you wake up the next morning from and your heart is still full. So let me tell you about my Friday night :-)
I desperately wish we had taken pictures, but I got to spend last night with 4 other CD grad students, mostly on a whim of "you have no plans, I have no plans, let's have no plans together!" But it ended so wonderfully. We did nothing that would seem significant, but we sat around and laughed until we cried and cried until we laughed. Most of our conversations revolved around the crazy men that are and aren't in our lives, but it delved into so much more. And then resorted back to discussing leaving a sweater in a professor's mailbox and TPing. (NOT TPing the recipient of the sweater. Well, that wasn't discussed long anyway....) After we ate, and ate, and ate (can I mention that I had my first gluten-free brownie and I looooooooved it!!) we sat down to watch The King's Speech. Yes, a room of Speech Pathologists (well, in about 1.5 years anyway) watching a movie about an adult stutterer. We had that man all KINDS of diagnosed.
In short, to describe it to someone who wasn't there, it was "a really good night". But to the 5 of us who were, it was such a breath of fresh air and a soul-refreshing night. And you just can't say "no" to that.
(Discalimer: I love all my speech ladies. I truly do. These 4 just happened to be the ones I spent time with last night. It would have been equally wonderful with any/all of them there)
In other news, I was also crafty yesterday and now my living room end tables are celebrating Christmas! (Most credit goes to Pinterest...let's be honest.)
2-The rest of my apartment is much more Christmas-y than these. These are just the latest addition :-)
