I ran away this weekend. I suddenly realized on Thurday that the place I needed to be was 2.5 hours away… staying in a guest bedroom I might as well call my own. So… pack a bag and drive. I went friday night to the plaza and ate at an amazing place called the Melting Pot, with a couple girls I used to work with. It was so.much.fun getting caught up, and can I say yummy fondue?
(Kansas City Plaza overlooking the river SOOC. low ISO and high(er) shutter speed. I am loving manual shooting.)
Late friday night I showed up at my friend Joanna’s place… we talked. Houses. Work. Life. I showed her pictures of my new house, she showed me her new pumpkin recipes.
Saturday… brunch with a college friend, shopping with old roomies, lots of girl talk and house talk and OOHH Tiffany has a new crush talk. An utter cure for whatever was stressing me out.
Then came the cookie dough. Is there anything better than a movie and a bowl of cookie dough? Hot cookies are good as well, but cookie dough became an addiction in college for my girls… and it is a staple of life. when one must walk 3 flights of stairs and stand in line for the community oven, one discovers the delight of uncooked food.
(there was supposed to be a picture here, but as of yet I haven’t figured out how to get pictures off of my phone and onto my computer. Maybe by You Capture time I will have it figured out…)
Insert movie review. I have heard about Breakfast at Tiffany’s for years. Figured it was this awesome movie, this classic, all sorts of great things. No. It was a pretty horrid movie. She was a ditzy airhead willing to marry for money, who threw her cat into the rain. He was a man kept by a married woman, and he was a total enabler. Joanna, who is my psych major friend, and I were both diagnosing people the whole time. really? classic? I don’t think so.
I love my girls. I love being with the people who have shared most experiences of the last 5 years, who have heard me cry and scream and laugh and stress and who know how to handle me in all those moods. It was a great way to let the stress melt away from everything that has happened in the last few weeks. Life is good!
