This weekend was so much fun. Absolutely 100% what the doctor ordered. Friday morning, I made a smoothie with half an avocado per a bunch of people’s recommendations. With one sip, I was gagging and then crawling to my bathroom to throw up. I mean, I actually threw up. From one sip of a smoothie. Something between the texture and the color just didn’t sit well with me, quite literally. Blech.
While Skyping with Maxie (she’s the best!), I broke out into hives. Every time I get even remotely worked up (excitement, nerves, emotional, the good, the bad, etc.). But it was a tiny amount, so nothing really to freak out about. The rest of the day was fine until I started watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. I was, again, nauseous… because it was the plane crash episode. Terrible, terrible idea. I was once again, sick to my stomach. I paused the episode and did about thirty minutes of biofeedback so I wouldn’t throw up again. Rawr.
Basically, by 6pm… I was ready for a relaxing low key weekend!
Amy and I gchatted/snapchatted/texted a couple of plans. She ended up coming over at 9pm (via a cab from the West Village in monogrammed pajamas, of course). We snacked on Swedish Fish, Sour Patch Kids, Oreos, gummy bears, and about two pounds of popcorn. Clearly, I was feeling better 😉 We talked for hours. Who knew how much there would be to catch up on?! We also made grand plans for Saturday afternoon coffeeshop hopping and playing in the West Village.
The first stop we made was Amy’s apartment for extra iPhone charges and then we popped over to a puppy store. Where I found the cutest puppy in the world and Amy found Heidi Klum. Standard. I was so focused on the puppy that I totally wouldn’t have noticed. A lot of walking a little bit of location scouting and then we grabbed a quick dinner.
Because we hadn’t quite had enough of each other yet… we met up for brunch. It was not good. But fun because we were sitting outside while it drizzled and ogled over the adorable dogs that walked right on by. The whole afternoon was spent taking photos and editing videos and listening to music (The Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning” will forever be stuck in my head).
Anyway… Sometimes you just need some good old fashioned girl time.
What is your favorite thing to do with girlfriends?
