this weekend was all about the ladies - i kicked the weekend off with a galentine's day celebration (such an important holiday) and ended it with a long dinner with some of my favorite bloggers (and a couple of other friends, too).
but let's talk about galentine's day.
on friday there was a donora show, so i invited out the same lady friends who went with me to the last one as a way to celebrate galentine's day, which formally falls on the 13th. (and if you're not an avid parks and rec fan like myself, here is a galentine's day description). we decided to go to beauty and essex, which, if you're ever looking to have a very fun night with your lady friends or perhaps are participating in a bachelorette party, i strongly recommend. the food is great and very shareable, and there is a champagne bar in the ladies' room. like - someone just stands there and serves everyone champagne. almost as if someone took my dreams and made them a reality. and, as it so happens, when it's galentine's day and you're with some of your best pals and there's a champagne bar in the ladies' room and the food is delicious and whatnot, you start to talk and laugh and talk some more and laugh some more and before you know it you've covered every subject possible.
and then it's 10:30 and you've basically missed the whole donora show except for one song.
oh galentine's day. i should have known better.
so my advice from here on out is that you're having a fun night with your girlfriends and need to be somewhere by 10 PM, i recommend a dinner reservation at 5 PM. just to be safe.
