I am simultaneously exhausted and ecstatic.

Firstly, let me just announce, I GOT A ROLE IN THE SCHOOL PLAY! I still can’t really believe it. I’ll be playing a bitchy/smart-ass waitress in one of the 5 ten-minute shorts Concordia is performing this semester. This may or may not have to do with the fact thatΒ  I auditioned as a bitchy/smart-ass McDonald’s employee. This particular play involves a chick who has been sucked into an alternate reality where she can’t get anything she asks for. The entire play is in a restaurant setting. Needless to say, I have a bunch of fun/humorous lines and I probably would have picked this role if I could have myself. I’m excited beyond belief but also preparing to make some sacrifices. The first being that I can’t spend Valentines Day with my hubby due to rehearsals and that a lot of other free time will now be sucked away (Shit starts getting really real the week of my birthday.) But right now, I’m kind of on a natural high and have decided it will all be more than worth it. At the same time, I’m pretty tempted to fall asleep on my keyboard right now. Trying to take on the world is kind of tiring sometimes. But a good kind of tiring.

Secondly, husband’s birthday is today. He’s 29! My friends and I threw a little surprise party for him on Saturday. And when I say my friends and I, I mostly mean my friends. I spent the day with Robby’s family (Who spoiled us with cupcakes and stuff) and babysat that night, so I was short on time. Katie was more than happy to let me use her place, and Tessa bought cake and balloons (which she wouldn’t let me pay her back for.) Both of these dear girl friends prepared festivities and made everything look party-ready and perfect. They even wrote some of Robby’s token sayings all over the balloons. (IE; “F***ing A!”) Husband, being consistently late to everything (One of the reasons I may kill him before he’s 30…),showed up an hour late.Β  My group of friends and I sat in the dark for 60 minutes, talking and giggling and once, accidentally surprising the wrong peeps. We had a blast waiting for my tardy dude to show up.

Last night, my friend Priscilla surprised me with a carton of ice-cream and we had a girl’s night of wine, dramatic tv shows and chocolate chip cookie dough ice-cream.

Today at my nanny job, I accidentally fed the two year old artichoke dip. No chips included. I thought it was pasta. Afterward,I brought hubby home some presents, studied and did my 4 days a week ab-workout routine. The boy and I just got home from Mexican-food (His favorite) date night.

Life is really good. I need a nap. But naps can wait. Life cannot! Now excuse me, while I watch a movie with the birthday boy and hopefully do not drool on him whilst snoring.

  1. Gotta love when you POWER THROUGH to have a good time. Naps are better when you’re feeling really happy and fulfilled, and you fall into them (naps) while reminiscing on the good times you had. πŸ™‚
    Congrats on the part in the play! You da bomb!

  2. Well done – that’s so exciting! And happy birthday to the hubby πŸ™‚ hope he had a great time! And hope that that two year old enjoyed his artichoke dip, the lucky thing!

    • hi emily- what a site loading with ognraized info. very helpful. I’m having trouble figuring out my color. I live in Bar Harbor Maine which is on Mount Desert Island.

  3. Umm..I think I love you..too soon?! CONGRATS on the play..and happy brithday to the boo cakes. I need those cupcakes, and I can’t wait to start stalking your blog.

  4. Congrats on your play! That’s so awesome. The part sounds like a lot of fun! I used to do theater and I was always cast in the slutty roles. I wonder why!? πŸ˜‰

    So… when is the week of your birthday?

    Have you seen Drunken Udder ice cream? It’s got booze in it!!

    I might have eaten about 6 mini-cupcakes, which looked like the ones in your pics, since Sat. Let’s say it was for your hubby’s bday.

    I just woke up from a nap. Man, that felt good! Hope yours does too.

  6. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh yes and haps to the B hubby! and I am so excited about your hot waitress role πŸ˜‰

  7. Oh congratulations!! I’m so happy for you and it really does sound like a fantastic role! I’m sure it’ll be worth the time sacrificed, even though I remember rehearsals sometimes felt like a downer, the actual performance always eclipsed that πŸ™‚ But I definitely get what you mean about taking on the world being tiring!

    Happy belated birthday to your husband! It sounds like you all had a fabulous time, I love that he was an hour late to his own surprise party, it’s definitely better than being early in those circumstances (which my boyfriend probably would be!) πŸ˜›
