I had a casual weekend, spending a lot of time at home. I must have really taken my post on embracing time alone to heart. Friday night, I went to Catalan with Lexi--a restaurant in the hip'n'happening Washington area. The food was delicious (the redneck mac'n'cheese was sinful) and it was fun to indulge in a meal a little more decadent than our normal neighborhood eateries.
On Saturday I did some solo shopping--the best kind if you actually want to be productive and focus on the task at hand. I passed up an offer to go to the Rodeo that night (you've gotta be in the mood for that!) and instead went to Julianne's for a brief visit before I came home to cuddle in bed with a movie. I chose New York, I Love You, which I had been hankering to see for awhile. I fell asleep midway through, but only because I was exhausted and completely sleep deprived from the past week. In fact, it was quite good and I can't wait to finish it. The cast is spectacular with three of my absolute favies: Natalie Portman, Blake Lively, and Rachel Bilson. Other honorable mentions include Bradley Cooper, Orlando Bloom, Christiana Ricci, and Shia LaBeouf. But the main character of this film is the city itself. It's an anthology film that tells several love stories all taking place in NYC. A similar film was done set in Paris.
Today was just as busy as Julianne and I trekked over to the Rodeo to see Selena Gomez in action. We may or may not have been the only people there that weren't under the age of 11 or over 36, but we were also the only ones dancing throughout the whole thing. We ate up every bit of it. Speaking of eating, I had my first taste of fried cookie dough and my initial hesitations were proven way wrong. It was dang good and worth every single calorie (perhaps giving that mac'n'cheese a run for its money). Someone spoiled their Mexico diet this weekend!
And after a late night study session with Caro, I'm finally ready for one last week. Cheer tryouts are this week and I am so happy to be on the other end of things this time around. One more thing I don't have to give much thought to is what I wear to school. All the Mexico-bound ladies will be wearing miu-mius all week! Ariba!
