Let Loose


HELLO lovelies!!!! I’ve MISSED you! I’m so sorry I’ve been absent for a while! It’s been a lil busy here with parties, practices and date night! I hope everyone has had an incredible Valentine’s Day. Actually, let’s forget that, I just hope you’re loving your weekends  no matter the holiday.

Friday night was a definite blast. We celebrated Jacq’s 21st birthday OU-style by creating a concoction of these dangerous ingredients:

Oh yeah, be scared
Oh yeah, be scared

The goal was to make a dark purple punch to reflect the Friday the 13th vibe, thus the Joose (which is actually being taken off the market). Muffin mixed together the nasty potent punch:

Happy party girl

 Muffin was hard at work all night trying to balance two men. It was beyond amusing. It was also very complicated, so I’ll save you from the details. While we were prepping for the party, I munched on:

homemade granola with walnuts, almonds, oats and dried cherries

The party was a blast. Although, for the first half hour or so I just sat on the couch, deleting old photos of food from my camera, haha. Eventually, I got my groove on. It’s a rarity for me not to dance in these settings:
Glorious. Bliss.

Glorious. Bliss.

It wasn’t long after that dance session when the birthday girl’s closest friends brought out their cupcakes for Jacq. They were chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing, crumbled Oreos and half Milano cookies stuck in to resemble tombstones (Friday 13th theme again). Creative, no?
Happy Birthday Jacqueline

they somehow spell out: Happy Birthday Jacqueline

Do you think I could resist a delicacy like that? Helll naws.
Mmm nostril shot

Shortly after the cupcake, I decided I’d had enough hipster music and rambunctious partyers. I was almost as tired as my feet were from wearing leopard print four-inch-heels. MisterMan and I stopped by a bar for a half an hour after we left the party for some quality time and giving each other googly eyes. He then took me home where I promptly changed into my sweats. He stuck around for a bit and after he left I SnackFaced on some unpictured Kashi Go Lean. I really can’t end the night without cereal.
Today was another long one, as for the play we had set construction and tv watching practice to accomplish. Before I headed out for the day (at 10:45, which is TOO early to leave the house on a Saturday), I read blogs and ate oats.

Confession time: before this bowl, I’d been using quick oats. I’d never thought that there was a difference between old fashioned and quick, so I figured faster was better. Wrong-O. The old fashioned are much chewier! I love this texture and will not be going back to quick oats.

Tonight MisterMan and I went to dinner, which I’ll review the restaurant in an upcoming post! After that we saw He’s Just Not That Into You. Frickin adorable. I highly enjoyed this and recommend it. The way all the story lines come together is remniscent of Love Actually.
Sorry I don’t have more food pictures–everything’s been very on-the-go bizarro meals. I have been fortunate enough to eat a few of these though:
Roomie's mom made them! yummm

Is it obvious I can’t refuse a baked good? I love to try all different types of cookies, but without fail, classic chocolate chip prevails.
I haven’t done ANY school work yet, so tomorrow is going to be funfunfun. Between 9am and 6pm I hope to finish a lot of it, but really, I can’t read a 300-page novel in a day.
Again, I’m so sorry I’ve been absent! THANK YOU all for reading and stickin’ with me through my odd week! It was definitely full of ups and downs, but I’m finally feeling recharged and ready to tackle the monster week I have ahead of me.
I hope everyone had a great Friday and Saturday, and continue to enjoy your Sunday! Much love!
Ciao for now,
P.S. 1: I hope I don’t look like a lush. I’m not, I swear. 2:I’m sorry you’re probably sick of seeing my face so many times in this post! Haha later loves!
