My Weekend Was...

Yes, MCW I'm stealing this from you, I hope you don't mind :) 

- Outside "After 5" event with a group of friends Friday night

(L, Daisy, me, The Voice of Reason and Barbie)

- Dinner with friends and then drinks far too late into the night....

- Woke up Saturday morning to find that Louis ate my cell phone.  It was in pieces.  It didn't work...AT ALL.  I don't know how he got it off of the table, but it was a goner :(

- T is the proud owner of a new Blackberry Curve.  I have never wanted a Blackberry.  Never.  But now I have one.  Because change is good.  And I need to just jump right in and figure out the next chapter of my life.  And I'm going to do it with a Blackberry in my hand.  And everything is going to be just fine.

- Brunch with one of my favorite couples on Saturday morning and mimosas on the patio.

- Louis cuddle time on Saturday afternoon.

- Wine and Smores on the patio with some friends Saturday night

(I want one of these fire pits, they are awesome!!)

- Sunday morning church with another group of friends.  I can't wait to visit this church again.  It's completely different than "my church", and I mean that in a good way.  Lots of young people.  Not at all pretentious.  Just a group of people wanting to have a relationship with God, and with each other. 

- I met a bloggy friend at church.  Such a small world!  She came up to me and said "Desperately Seeking Seersucker!" and I said "her blog name", and it was awesome.  She's absolutely lovely, and I look forward to getting to know her in real life :)

- Brunch after church with friends.  It's amazing to me how blessed I am!  I have so many different groups of friends from all different aspects of my life.  I plan to spend the next few months working on growing and nurturing these friendships.  Any relationship needs love and attention and effort, or it will just fade away.  I don't want that to happen with any of these people because they are so important to me.  So special.  Such GOOD people.  AND...they have kept a constant smile on my face ALL WEEKEND LONG.  And that, my friends, is something :)

- A new-ish friend was at brunch on Sunday and he has his pilots license.  He said "hey, let's fly to Vegas".   Babbo Natale shrugged her shoulders and I thought "why not?".  He says he's going to show me how to fly...because I'm terrified of it.  I do it all the time, but I'm terrified.  I don't know if that will ever happen, but it gave me the most wonderful feeling of freedom....and I liked that :)  Besides, how could you not giggle at the thought of Babbo Natalie, me and new-ish friend flying around in a small aircraft on our way to Vegas.  Okay, maybe it isn't such a good idea....

- Sunday evening I started packing for the beach.  I also did a lot of reflecting on what I had learned over the weekend.  Sunday's sermon was amazing.  It was exactly what I needed to hear.  I also heard some other little quotes, if you will, that were exactly what I needed to hear.  I think I just need to be constantly reminded that I'm doing the right thing.  That this is how it is supposed to be.  And if you find yourself in a place where you aren't so sure anymore, just repeat after me:

"Never allow someone to be your priority, while allowing yourself to be their option."

"Missing someone is far different from loving the person still."

Then again, you may have already seen these quotes if you are following me on Twitter.  Yes, I'm tweeting.  I can't promise that it will last, but this new Blackberry is entertaining at the moment.  Follow me at DSSeersucker

I switched from my iPhone back to my Blackberry because I love it so...I just upgraded to the Blackberry Bold and it's a-mazing! You have to learn how to use Blackberry Messenger (BBM) because they have the best faces on there...and it's just much more fun than texting!

It's great to hear that you are doing well and smiling! Change is always a good thing...much easier said than done, I know, as I am going through major life changes, too! But I am excited...and ready. :)

Have fun at the beach!

I like those quotes a lot, they're very good reminders. I'm repeating and writing them down for reference. It sounds like you had a great weekend!

MCW said...

I don't mind at all!
I love my curve...Glad you had a packed weekend :)
And flying to Vegas sounds like a blast. Just take a flask.

Laurnie said...

So happy to hear you had an uplifting weekend! And how funny you ran into a fellow blogger.

Im following you on twitter now - @laurnie21

I love those quotes. They're so fitting and I really think you (or anyone going through tough times) can find strength in those words.

Glad to hear you had such a great weekend!

Sounds to me like you had a pretty great weekend!

You're really going to LOVE the curve.. once I went bberry I couldnt go back. I am sorry Louis thinks they're fun chew toys but hey- change is good!!
I had a blogger friend encounter this weekend too! a great college friend of mine happens to be very good friends with a bloggy friend of mine.. such a small world and I LOVE IT!
Have a great day:)

T - loved the sermon quotes ... all I can say is AMEN!

Have fun at the beach - hope little Louis is OK after chewing up your old phone ... those westies will find a way to get anything they want!

Be well ... be happy,

that first quote is EXACTLY what i needed to hear right now...thanks :)

Trish said...

Hi honey! Just a little note to say HI and I'm thinking of you!

Congratulations on your new phone, even though silly Louis devoured your last one! I think you will love it. I am on BB and my hubby is on iPhone, and I still have a bit of iPhone envy, but for email, etc., BB is the bestest!

OMG you met a blog friend randomly! How cool is that?! I got to meet Bumpkin and Captain John last week - it was the best!

Flying off to LV sounds amazing! Can you imagine the views? You could soar right over the Grand Canyon!

Have fun at the beach, doll! xoxo

Welcome to the Dark Side. :) Bberries aren't all that bad. But trust me, you won't want to go back...

Sounds like you had a great weekend! Hope that the week is too...

TudorCity Girl said...

Wow- I am blown away by these quotes! I need to write them down. How very true.
Glad you have such wonderful and caring friends in your life. It is so important.
Sorry about your cell! I killed mine last week too with some water...These phones are not built to last. Glad Louis is okay from it though!
Have yourself another wonderful deserve it.

I don't think that I trust new-ish friend to fly us all the way to Vega. Maybe home to Lexington but that's about it!
