Happy Monday Bosses and Boss Chics! I never thought I would say this but I have been looking forward to this week and I am actually glad that today is Monday! First of all let me start by reiterating that my 23rd birthday is this Wednesday lol. I have so much to look forward to and every reason to be positive! On top of my birthday being in two days, my best friend and I have decided to take a trip to Charlotte this coming Saturday so we can celebrate my birthday with a little fun. Not to mention that I have "invested" in two pair of shoes in the past week, one of which should be here any day, so new shoes always equal a good mood :)
Normally I spend my birthdays in Richmond for the weekend with all my best friends, not that I don't love that but I'm excited to be doing something different this year. Also I'm going to be treating myself to a full body massage on Wednesday morning just for my big day. My best friend and I also went and got manis and pedis this weekend. We did a little shopping on Saturday in Winston, and went out locally Saturday night. I ended up having a really good time; and after getting my hair straightened for the first time since October, I'm surprised it didn't poof up!
Yesterday for Super Bowl Sunday, my best friend and I went to church then to Olive Garden for lunch. She of course dragged me to the mall (she's the shopaholic not me! lol) and when we got back home she had a brilliant idea of us throwing a Super Bowl party at 5:30 pm lol! Considering that the Super Bowl started at 6:30 this wasn't much of a heads up for us but we got it done! We ended up making nacho dip as well as pigs in a blanket. Of course you can't forget the Coronas with the snacks! We had originally planned to make brownies but after stuffing our faces we couldn't eat any more lol. Mind you this was only a two person party lol, but we had fun nonetheless.
Of course there's a message with every #PositiveMonday post and this one is no different. This weekend made me realize how important it is to have a good friend in your life. My best friend Tia and I have been friends since I can remember, and yes we have a lot in common but we are two distinctly different people. That's what makes the dynamics of our friendship so unbreakable. We rarely ever look at situations the same, but we give each other our opinions, respect them and keep it moving. Nothing we tell each other is ever meant to harm the other, we genuinely look out for the other and vice versa. It's so hard to come by true friends, so when you know you have one you should definitely appreciate them always.
I've been through many friends throughout the years, but this one, as well as the other 3 I have, has stuck with me through thick and thin and I wouldn't trade their crazy selves for the world! Do you have certain friends that have been in the picture through it all, and they're still there?? Hit us up and let us know and check out a few pics from my weekend below!
