Pillows Chopped, Mimosas Served

It’s FRIDAY!  I’m particularly excited about this weekend for two reasons: my “cleanse” is officially over, and my girlfriends are in town. Which means mimosas, movies and… more mimosas.

This marks the first time I’m having house guests. House guests! The excitement drove me to stay up far too late chopping pillows, rearranging vases and stocking guest rooms with extra toiletries. Was it really necessary to buy an additional 10 toothbrushes for three guests? I’m turning into my mother.

The pantry is now stocked with healthy and unhealthy treats— the healthy for when my friends want to feel better about inevitable vacation weight gain, and the unhealthy for when midnight rolls around and kale chips lose their charm.

I’ve got big plans for us. Eating out. Bar hopping. Yoga. Yoga obviously cancels out the eating part. We’ll probably pretend like we’re in college again. Until reality hits. Let’s be honest— we’ll be exhausted by ten. We’ll be tipsy off a single glass of wine. And we’ll fall asleep crying over watching “A Walk to Remember.” Darn you, Mandy Moore.

Happy weekend friends, see you Monday.
