So, Saturday was the BEST! DAY! EVER! I quit being so whiny about not knowing anyone and I met a bunch of random strangers I had never met and went kayaking. Let me repeat, I met a bunch of STRANGERS that I had never met before. EVER! And it was a total blast.
Some dude that runs this particular kayaking group loaned me a kayak to use, another guy loaned me a life jacket (that was too big, but beggars can't be choosers) and a lady let me borrow her paddle because it was a lighter version of the one the first dude let me borrow.
A group of about 12 of us teetered about on a lake that I realized was only 15 minutes from my house. Who knew I had (almost) water front property. Maybe that explains why my taxes are ass high.
I had so much fun watching the wildlife and floating and rocking back and forth and getting a slight tan. I busted out the kids SPF 50 and rocked it the whole time because even though I am part Italian AND Indian (which I just discovered recently) I burn to a crisp even when the sun is on the other side of the world.
Total blast. I am so proud that I got off my hiney and ventured into the real world with real people. Go me!
Oh, and also, Sunday was pretty kick ass, too. I, along with my momma, threw a baby shower for my Sister-In-Law (Hi SIL!). Was lots of fun and who doesn't love looking at tiny pink (I'm getting a niece!!!) pants and cute little onesies with butterflies? I know I do.
After the shower and some last minute BlogHer shopping (Hello new jacket...see it? Over there on the right?) the fam, including my grandma who's in town, loaded up in the cars and drove to the Bass Performance Hall to see Avenue Q. FUCKING HILARIOUS. Have you seen it? You have? It was awesome, yes? Oh wait, you over there haven't seen it? You simply MUST. It's so great that I am reduced to using caps lock because I want you to go see it. NOW.
And lastly, I'm pissed at my throat. It hurts and I don't know why. If I get sick I will be so so so angry. Internet, please share with me your best home remedies for getting rid of a scratchy throat.
*I'm not really going to change my blog name. I just really wanted to use the word Thistletwat in my blog title. It's a character from Avenue Q. And I'm not kidding, go see it, you will not be sorry. Unless you are a little bit racist.
