Yes, yes, yes I know what you’re thinking……”You’re not even in school anymore girl….get your shit together!” Okay, I get that, but I had a lot going on this weekend, I’ve worked late every night this week, and there was no way that this was going to get put together on time. Epic things happened that deserved time and dedication!
On a totally random side note, I bought a cute keyboard cover for the MacBook….so I’m typing this out all stealthy and silent. You wouldn’t even know I’m working, it’s amazing!
Okay….so….onto the main event.
LIL B’ CAME TO VISIT AND WE HAD A HOUSE PARTY!
She got here Friday afternoon and it was basically all the food and all the drinks all weekend long. Sometimes you’ve gotta let it all go I guess. Friday night we all had dinner at the BFB and Hubby in Law’s house. Then of course BFB made dipped strawberries….cuz that’s just how we roll…..FANCY!
Post dinner we played board games….cuz we are adults! #sorrynotsorry…..but literally, we played Sorry. Does anyone else remember that game taking hours?! I think we must have been doing it wrong cuz it took forever! Also, everyone discovered that I have problems when Skittles are in my presence…..like black tar heroin level addiction problems if they appear within arms reach of me!
Saturday morning we had “Crepe Bar” at the BFB’s….like I’m really not sure you’re really grasping the level of fancy we roll with when we are together!
We girls went to the mall after breakfast. The mall on a Saturday is always a bad idea, but we did get through Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, and Pink. If you’re wondering why we had to go to both Victoria’s Secret and Pink…..it’s because I’m a diva and insisted on it. Under roos are cheaper at Pink, and this is important to me since the Scout a Roo continues to eat them given even the smallest oppertunity. It’s a bit of a problem, but she’s old now so I doubt it’s going to change anytime soon honestly. Plus side, I guess she is always keeping me in the season’s latest fashions, under roo wise anyway!
After shopping it was time to start cooking. The cooking started with maybe the best question quote that has ever left Lil B’s mouth…..
Is your tomato sauce…..tomatoey?! Like does it taste like tomatoes? Is it like Prego?!”
I had 7 friends over for Pasta, Pino, and Pizza. We opened up Maximus, the 5 liter bottle of wine I received for Christmas, and all went to town. Between us, we drank most of it. Probably about half of a normal sized bottle was all that remained the next morning when I was cleaning up. To go along with Maximus….we made way too much food….which is a thing we tend to do every time.
Alright, the run down!
- Erik’s Homemade Alfredo Sauce with Chicken
- Red Sauce with Hamburger…..homemade by me! (Yes, it’s tomatoey)
- Chicken and Pesto Pizza
- Pepperoni Pizza with Onions and Green Peppers
- 2 Pounds of Dry Pasta
- 1 Large Spaghetti Squash
- A Whole Loaf of Garlic Bread
- Gluten Free Pasta for the BFB
After we all got silent and shoved our faces full of yummy Italian and wine, we basically just bummed around, chatted and caught up with each other, and played a couple rounds of Cards Against Humanity.
Yes, you saw that picture right, Maximus required buddy system pours for probably the first half of the bottle. He was just so heavy, it wasn’t a one man job. Also, uncorking him wasn’t a one man job either. Lil B had to help hold the base of the corkscrew while I leveraged the arm up. Once the cork got started it went alright, but the initial part seemed a little questionable. There was even a brief discussion of whether or not power tools might be necessary. We were all maybe a little concerned about the quality of Maximus, but all things considered he wasn’t half bad at all! The night was another successful dinner and booze party!
Sunday morning I made breakfast and we had our “Girl’s Morning Coffee Sesh”. Sometimes it’s the littlest things you miss when your besties aren’t around all the time, and for us….morning coffee is that thing. We also learned that pancakes made with coconut are delicious, but literally pancake flat! They don’t puff up at all….and yes, before you ask, I did add plenty of baking powder.
After breakfast, we decided to take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and go wander the boutiques downtown. Between breakfast, the bakery, and lunch….we basically ate all morning long….and I’m totally ok with that!
All in all it was an amazeballs weekend, and given the amount of alcohol consumed over the three days….it’s a Christmas miracle that no one woke up with a hangover! I’ll take that as a win and get to planning the next bestie weekend. Actually, the next bestie weekend is gonna be in a couple weeks, except that we will be short the BFB.
