Gal Friends, Dude Friends, Old Friends, New Friends

I felt like I was living in my own version of Dr. Seuss’ One Fish, Two Fish this weekend. I was SO social which, for me, was exhilarating but exhausting. My body is physically sore from being so outgoing for so many days in a row (though, maybe that is from the new workouts I started this week).

Baseball Bliss

Thomas and I went to a baseball game for the Kannapolis Intimidators on Friday night. Other than being a little chilly, it was perfect. I got a hot dog and got to spend time with one of my favorite people. It couldn’t have been batter. 😉 (See what I did there?)


Gal Pal Gathering

Saturday was by far the most social I’ve been in forever. My friend Jessica just finished up some renovations on her house and wanted to have some ladies over for a good time. Her house is perfection and the kitchen updates are gorgeous.

The ladies were wonderful too. It’s nice getting together with people of a similar age and just chatting and making new friends. Some days that’s just what you need- a new group of strong, awesome women to laugh with and drink with and pig out on some chips and guac with. I wish I could have stayed longer (and had remembered to take pictures) but I had another destination to get to.

Headed Home

I don’t know about you, but there are some people that I have in my life that just feel like home. Obviously, my family does, as does Thomas and even his family, but I spent three years of my college experience with these really wonderful humans as a part of Charcoal Pony, a comedy improv troupe, and getting to see some of them last night was a little bit like going home.  I got to go back to my alma mater Saturday night and see some of my Charcoal Pony babies perform in their senior show and play some running charades afterward.

For the show, I sat with a couple of other alumni, we were missing a good deal of my favs but Nathan, Ryan, and Randall were there to help celebrate our sweet seniors. (There’s your shout-out, Nathan.) I’m really excited for my babies. Jared, Dan, Teddy, Shannon – you guys are going to go great places and do great things. Now quit horsing around and graduate.


All in all, while a really social weekend for me, it was nice making new friends and seeing old ones. I loved laughing with new ladies and always cherish the big grins and bear hugs from my improv family.

I hope you all remember to stretch yourself a little and take a chance to make some new friends and never forget to love the old ones. Embrace the future and treasure your past.

Now, it’s time for a nap. Too much talking, not enough sleeping.

Until next week,
