Weekends are not meant for allergies.

As you can tell by the title the allergy gods shined the curses upon me and I suffered all weekend long. Gah. But I still made it through....barely...

Friday: Sadly I did not see Ryan Gosling. Even after forfeiting my lunch break to eat and read inside and look outside the lobby window, Ryan decided to not walk his dog...damn. I guess I shouldn't look for him any more and if I'm meant to see him, I will. Nonetheless I was still bummed so I watched some Notebook clips online to feel better (don't judge, haha). After work I headed home to hang with Matt for a bit then before I knew it I was off again for my coworker, Kimmy's birthday at the new Hollywood hotspot Kress. It was a pretty good time. Dinner was sushi for me and lots of tasty Japanese themed stuff for everyone else and plenty of drinks for the birthday girl:
my phenomenal sushi, mmmmmmmm


the birthday girl with her drinks


After dinner we headed downstairs to the club part and danced the night away. It's a good thing wine hides allergies and sneeziness because man I don't know how else I would have survived the night, haha.
All the ladiessssss


caught a little off guard, haha


oh what a good time


All in all a fun night but man was I ready to fall asleep by the time I got home, oh sweet bed I love you.

Saturday: After sleeping in (thank god for allergy meds), Matt and I got up, watched some college football and ate breakfast, twas lovely. After a while we ran some errands a la our parent's houses. Afterwards my allergies officially decided to wage war against me and give me the worst headache ever. So a nap was officially in order and I didn't wake up for four hours, so that was nice. Matt came over to get me and we headed over to his brother's girlfriend's parent's (MBGP) house to watch some football and celebrate a birthday. All in all a great night, minus the watery eyes, itchy eyes, sneeziness and freaking fatigue, oy. It ended up being a pretty tame night and I went to bed fairly early and was just full on lame, but I definitely needed it.

Sunday: After and allergy med induced sleep I woke up feeling much better and did some dilly dallying around the place while Matt went to MBGP's house for some pro football and birthdayness. Basically another lazy day, I did another 6 mile walk with my mom and met up with Matt at MBGP's house for dinner and cake, and finally came home to catch the end of the Emmy's (oh yes my thoughts on those winners and outfits manana).

All in all my kind of lazy weekend and just what I needed after such a busy week and ridiculous allergies that just won't leave me alone. Hopefully this week will be a wee bit better....fingers crossed.

And how was your weekend? Sneeze free I hope :)




happy monday!

I went out friday night, but I spent the rest of the time lounging around and taking naps. At least I feel rested now.

you're pictures from friday are adorable. looks like a good time!

i pray you're allergies decide to settle down soon - i had them for the first time ever this past spring, and it was HORRIBLE.
and being the forgetful girl i am, i never remembered to take allergy medicine before coming to work, which made me the disgusting, sniffly girl on the skytrain. siiick.

aw too bad you missed him! I missed Jessica Simpson when she walked right by me on my birthday (I didn't look up, then when I did, I only saw her from behind from a distance).

So it's not meant to be... but how can it not be meant to see these people!?

Daddy Dan said...

You went on a 6-mile walk and called it a "lazy day"?!? =)

That'd be a major workout for most people.

I'm looking forward to your Emmy update.

kay* said...

theycallmecurlysue said...

I think everyone had the allergy crap this weekend--wth? I've never had the courage to try sushi, I think it's the whole mind over matter thing concerning the uncooked fish. Eeek! Looks like you girls had a great time! Love your shirt too!

Tipp said...

I hope you feel better soon!
