Good morning blog loves! I missed you guys yesterday…it’s been a while since I missed a day of blogging. But I woke up yesterday feeling a bit under the weather (hung over, ahem) so I took the day off. But rest assured, I am back (because I know you were worried )
So, Friday night around here was a busy one. Why?
I was celebrating my birthday! (I turned 23 last Wednesday). It was one of those nights where you’re pretty sure you had a fabulous time.
The best friend and three of my other London friends drove up in the afternoon to spend some time with me beforehand, and we headed over to the mall so I could pick up something new to wear that night, as well as some pretty new school clothes. I had a new accessory taken care of, thanks to an incredibly thoughtful gift from Laura:
A Coach clutch!
I’ve never owned anything even remotely designer label in my life, so this made me extremely happy. And I love anything silver (it’s my second favourite colour, next to purple) so I know I can match it to most of my outfits.
So pretty! (less pretty is my now-haphazard manicure. I should get on that).
After shopping, we picked up some Subway (no picture, but I had my usual) and then we headed back to my place to watch a scary movie – the weekend before Halloween it’s a must, right?
We put on a movie called Grave Encounters – I hadn’t heard of it, but apparently the sequel just came out?
Oh goodness. If you’re a horror fan, you will love this movie. It’s like Paranormal Activity, but it takes place in an abandoned mental institution. Terrifying.
(Fun fact: when I was about 16 I actually explored an abandoned asylum with some friends in a town nearby. It was one of the scariest experiences in my life, but how many people can say they actually did this? And yes, I did not believe for a second we were alone in there).
After the movie, it was party time!
Wearing my new shirt!
And I have no idea why I’m not smiling. I assure you, I’m enjoying myself.
I’m not going to lie, I have no idea why there’s so much pointing going on.
The further we got into the night, the sillier things seemed to get.
Anyone remember Party Boy? ‘Cause Laura got Party Boy’d.
I kind of think I need to start wearing one of those hats – It looked surprisingly cute!
Best facial expression? You decide.
I actually have nothing to say for that one.
Super maturity right here. :-p
Around 9, we headed over to the Brantford Casino for a while. I went in with $50 and came out with about $70. Better than nothing, right? I don’t have pictures from the casino (apparently, you can’t take pictures in casinos) but I can assure you it was a great time. I met a few of my friends from school down there so we had a nicely sized group. Only a few people had good luck, but that’s a casino for you!
We headed to another bar for a while before heading home, meeting up with my brother and his girlfriend back at my place.
Awesome night! It must have been, considering that I didn’t make it to bed until about 4:30 in the morning. I couldn’t have gone earlier! We ended up with 8 people sleeping in my tiny-ass apartment (thank god for air mattresses) so I couldn’t really go to bed until everyone else was ready. It made for a long (but fun!) night.
So in bed at 4:30, awake at 9:30? Yea, I was not feeling my best yesterday morning.
Nothing a good hole-in-the-wall greasy diner breakfast can’t fix.
We walked down to Lonnie’s, which is an open 24/7, breakfast all day diner downtown that serves everything from burritos to salads to ice cream sundaes. And breakfast – definitely much needed!
I ordered the peameal and eggs – 2 poach eggs, peameal bacon, brown toast and hash browns. I left about half the hash browns and cleared the rest of my plate – I was starving! And my stomach definitely felt settled afterwards.
The rest of the day involved a lot of resting, schoolwork and marking – I’m going to be insanely busy the next couple weeks! I’ve got papers to mark, a 10 page paper to write and a 90 minute presentation to prepare for. Intense.
And I finished the night off with a cupcake – deliciousness.
Plans for today involve grocery shopping, hitting the gym and more schoolwork (of course).
Have a great Sunday!
