OK, not really. I’m not actually pimping myself out. But I did pick up a new friend this weekend! And a girl!
Aren’t y’all proud???
But more on that in a quick sec, because I totally forgot to tell you that I guest posted for Corey over at Learning Patience on Friday! She is seriously one of the sweetest gals I know–she tells me I inspire her–and always has something positive to say. So scooch on over to her sparkling new blog and give ‘er a little love! She’s a sweetie pie! Plus, her birthday’s coming up, and a little birdie told me she’s having a kick ass giveaway later this week . . . #justsayin
OK, now to the pippin’! ;)
After a wild Friday night (Target run, dog walk, frozen pizza, wine), I needed a day of rest on Saturday, so I decided to mosey on up to my rooftop to sit in the sun and read my book. In case you forgot, here’s the awful view I’m dealing with:
I hate it. Hurts my eyes.
So up to the roof I went, sunblock and favorite summer read in tow. Side note: if you haven’t read this book, you need to. NOW. (<–yes, for all you 50 Shades fans, those are SHOUTY CAPITALS)
Anyway, as soon as I got on the roof, I scoped out a spot for myself and noticed another chick flying solo, also sunning herself and reading. But she was doing it way better than me: she had wine.
Duh. Why didn’t I think of that.
After being stupid and shy for a bit (and reading my book), I figured I might as well say hi. I mean, chick brought wine to the deck. She’s obviously cool. So I told her I liked her style, and we were instantly friends. Such good friends that we went to dinner that very night and then shopped and had another dinner yesterday! YAY for girlfriends!
Although I’m still pretty sure I’m the oldest person in DC (swear to God, I haven’t met anyone over 25!), it’s still fun to have girl time, to talk about boys and clothes and neuroses with someone who just gets it. I was missing that, and I didn’t even know it! Not that I don’t have awesome friends in my work #BFFLs!
