Happy Monday folks. I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was pretty exciting the first part and then leveled off. But I was looking forward to a lazy weekend all by my lonesome to relax and watch whatever I wanted on the TV. So I spent the majority of the weekend on the couch with Birdie watching Platinum Weddings and Say Yes to the Dress.
Friday night was a lot of fun! Dory Ford (one of my sister's friend who has become my friend through the years) was in Little Rock for the night and Clark was in Tunica for his brother's bachelor party so Dory and I decided to have a girl's night. Dory is a really fun person with an overflowing heart and she has had some hard times lately- she lost her daddy (and she was a daddy's girl) and her husband of 2 years and her just decided to separate. I thought a night of drinking with Mary would do just the trick to make her forget her worries and let loose! We went to Sticky Fingerz and caught up and talked. Then after we had a pretty good buzz we decided the piano bar would be a lot more fun than Sticky's. We got a table right up to the piano's (which is hard to do on a Friday night). We sang along with the music until about 1 or so (we think- we kinda lost track of time). Then we headed home and drank a full bottle of wine that we really didn't need. She stayed the night and I took her home the next morning. Poor Dory had to be at a wedding in Eureka Springs and she had to cut cake. I hope she had fun!
Saturday was much more low key. Platinum Weddings was the theme of the day. I layed around/recovered from Friday most of the day. Nikki, Anne, and I went to Lilly's Dim Sum Then Some for dinner. It's a kind of tapas restaurant for Asian fusion food. It was very different, but good. I then came home and was in bed by 10. Pretty lame for a Saturday night.
The Little Rock marathon kicked off at 8 AM on Sunday. I started to hear the commotion around 7, so I was up early. Birdie and I went downstairs to see all of the runners go by. It was crazy! Birdie was not a fan of marathons. I think all the pitter patter really scared her. I admired all of the runners who had just begun their 26.2 mile journey through the city. It's one of my crazy idea's to run a marathon. It just sounds so accomplished- "I ran a marathon." And Oprah did it- and I love Oprah! Maybe I'll try the half marathon next year. Or maybe just run the Race for the Cure. Or maybe just try a long run on the treadmill. Start small.
Clark came home Sunday around 2 and he joined me on the couch. We watched tv and he took several naps. He was still feeling rough from the weekend.
We have bingo tonight at Foxwood. And I get to spend time with Hayden! Fun!
Hope everyone else had a good weekend. Only 5 more days and then it's the weekend again!
