I Still Pick My Friends Over You

And just like that the weekend is over.  I managed to pack a lot in while actually spending most of the weekend doing nothing at all.  I still don't feel entirely rested & am hoping that this week goes quickly & smoothly.  I hope y'all had a great weekend & have a terrific week!  Linking up with Miss Biana!  If you haven't done so already, don't forget to enter the giveaway I have going on on Instagram!  I'm giving away a $10 gift card to Starbucks & another $10 gift card to Target.  The giveaway ends today at 5pm CST.

Friday after work I headed to Target so that I could pick up a couple of gift cards for my Instagram giveaway as well as a Smores Frappuccino because happy hour at Starbucks.  I then just hung out at home for a couple of hours until it was time to go get my friend from the airport.  Then it was off to Dallas for a concert in Deep Ellum at The Door.  Because it was Cinco de Mayo we got tacos at Fuzzy's before the show.  We missed part of the opening band, Trash Boat, but neither of us had heard of them anyway & I was really there for New Found Glory.  I really enjoyed it.  After NFG they were going to have Emo Night Brooklyn which is just a couple of DJs playing old emo music.  In between the set up we went to Uncle Uber's to eat & waited for another friend to show up.  Then it was off to relive my youth & listen to some emo music.  It pretty much turned into karaoke night so we left before it was over but I still had a blast listening to music from my high school days.

Even though I hadn't drank that much at all I swore I was hungover when I woke up.  Turns out I was wrong, my allergies just came back in full force.  I first woke up around 7-8 & forced myself back to sleep.  I was supposed to have a date at 2 & thought about trying to tough it out but around 9:30 I text him to ask if we could reschedule for the next day since I felt like crap.  No response.  Whatever.  I wasn't super stoked about the date anyway because we had compared what our two all time favorite things to do were & we both hated doing the other person's favorite thing.  What I really wanted was a Big Mac but even though they can serve breakfast all freaking day they can't serve a Big Mac until 11.  So I took some meds & forced myself back to sleep.  Around 11 I got up, got a Big Mac, & went back to sleep until 3:30 when I had to get up & start getting ready for prom.  I attended my 6th high school prom Saturday night, my 4th as a chaperone.  It was at the Gaylord Texan which I had never been to by my goodness.  That hotel is insanely nice!!  We were only on duty from 7-9 so we went to go hang out at one of the bars & watch part of the Rangers game until 11 when we agreed to help clean up.  We all hung out until a little before 1 & then called it a night.

I again did nothing.  Around 8 or 9 something I text my friend seeing when he needed to be brought to the airport so I could plan out my day.  I had big plans of grading & going to finally get my stuff out of storage.  Neither of those happened.  I fell back asleep & luckily woke up just in time to get ready & head out the door to go pick him up.  We got lunch, I dropped him off, planned on going to the storage unit, & instead went home & went to bed for awhile.  I got up long enough to go get some frozen yogurt & some allergy medicines & ibuprofen.  I was feeling slightly better but not well enough to go deal with the storage unit & not motivated enough to grade so instead I started watching Girl Boss on Netflix.  I think I have 4 or 5 episodes left... I really like it.  Then it was back to bed for me.  I am loving the warm weather, but I am hating my allergies.
