Expect The Unexpected

I hope that everyone had a great weekend.  Happy belated Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there.  My weekend was nothing at all like I had imagined it would be but it still turned out to be a really good weekend.

Today is my second to last Monday of the school year!  Can I get a whoop whoop?!

Linking up with Biana.

Original plan for Friday: A date in Fort Worth with a guy at 8 at Reservoir for drinks.

What actually happened on Friday: I was on my way to Fort Worth when 30 min before our date he asked if we could push it back to 8:30 because he was still at dinner with his mom.  I was slightly annoyed since I was already on my way but I said that was fine.  I still got to the bar at 8, ordered a drink, & watched some hockey.  At 8:10 he text me and said he still hadn't left because his mom was guilt tripping him because it was mother's day weekend.  I told him I was already there watching hockey in the back & to let me know when he was on his way & then ordered another drink.  At 8:30 he hadn't responded so I left.  As I was walking to my car I told him that I appreciated that he was spending time with his mom, especially on mother's day weekend, but that my time was valuable and so I was going home.  He conveniently text me a couple minutes later telling me he just got home & would love to be able to make it up to me.  I told him no.  

Things I don't need in a relationship: someone with an overbearing mother, a big time mama's boy, someone who doesn't respect my time, and/or a liar.

About the time I got home my friend Lauren messaged me & I told her I had just been stood up so we agreed to meet at Lucy's Lot for some drinks because her boyfriend & just ditched out on her last minute.  We wound up making friends at the bar & staying out until midnight.

Original plan for Saturday: Yelp! Elite brunch at Unleavened in Southlake, get an oil change, hang out with Nash, meet up with Raeann & Trey that night for Deep Ellum Social.

What actually happened on Saturday: 
I did in fact go to my very first Yelp! Elite event.  It was a brunch at Unleavened in Southlake.  The food was really good, I got the Dagwood as a hash along with a mimosa.  It was slightly awkward in that I have 0 problem doing things by myself but I felt like I was supposed to be socializing & did not because everyone was there with people they already knew sitting at little tables together.  Which turned out to be a good thing because if I had been busy socializing I wouldn't have been talking to Caleb & in turn finding out that brunch with them was the same day...

I have multiple calendars.  On all of my calendars I had written down that brunch for Caleb's grad school graduation was on Sunday.  Luckily I had sent a snapchat about being basic & brunching to Caleb while I was at Unleavened because he then asked if I was double brunching.  I then went back through my text messages to see what Helen had said about brunch & she had in fact said Saturday... luckily I was done with my food & not talking to anyone anyway because I hightailed it out of there so fast.  I then drove from Southlake to Ten Bells Tavern in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas where I drove around for 10 minutes trying to find parking.

I had just eaten so I didn't get more food but I did have a couple of mimosas as well as a "Cocktail for Buddy."  We even got to see Buddy at brunch!  The bar was trying to raise money for Buddy's cancer treatments so there was no way in hell I wasn't going to get a cocktail.  I got the Car Ride.  After brunch we walked to Wild Detectives for some coffee & to just hang out for a bit before they all went to Cidercade & I went home to take care of Nash & go out that night.

Nash & I mostly just lounged around for a couple of hours enjoying Dog Mom Day, which he gave 0 shits about, before I had to get ready & head back to Dallas.

Trey being Trey did not meet up with us until about an hour after we said we were going to meet.  So Raeann & I went to Cane Rosso for some pizza & drinks because neither of us had ever been & it was on my "places to eat in DFW" list.  It wasn't bad.  I mean it was good pizza, it's just not my favorite style.  And as far as Neapolitan pizza goes I like Dough better.  But the pizza was still good & so was the Cran-Apple Mule I got.

After pizza we walked down to Reno's to find set list times for Deep Ellum Social & get our wristbands.  We then headed to Will Call for some drinks with Helen, Steve, & Trey.  Eventually Trey had a date show up & we saw them intermittently throughout the night.  Raeann, Helen, Steve, & I went to the Green Room to eat before going back to Reno's to see Light The Fire.  Helen & Steve left during that show and Trey & his date disappeared somewhere after it so Raeann & I went down to Curtain Club to see Psychostick.  Trey & his date reappeared at some point during that show & then left again.  Just before the end of the show Raeann & I called an Uber to take us back to our cars at Fuel City so we too could go home.

Original plan for Sunday: Meet up at Ten Bells Tavern for Caleb's grad school graduation brunch in the morning & a date with a guy that night.

What actually happened on Sunday: Since the brunch had actually been Saturday I took Nash to the dog park, where another dog wound up scaring him so we left early because he stopped playing & wouldn't leave my side.  We went to Starbucks because I hadn't made coffee yet that morning & Nash got a puppy whip because #SpoiledAF.  I also went to El Paisa to get some breakfast tacos.  We then spent the entire day lounging around watching Hart of Dixie & napping.  I hadn't talked from the guy I was supposed to go on a date with since Friday, when I asked him what he'd like to do Sunday & he hadn't responded.  So at 6:30 that night when he asked me if I was still free I may have lied & told him I had made other plans because I just wasn't having it.  I told him since I hadn't heard from him & we had never made a plan, I made other plans.  Okay not a complete lie.  I had made other plans.  I made plans to run errands, hang out at home with Nash, & not put up with guys who can't communicate.

I was supposed to have a date tonight as well but I have already deleted that guy because he also just stopped talking.  I do however have a date with a guy this coming Friday, who has consistently talked to me every single day since we started talking, & potentially a date tonight or tomorrow with a different guy.  However, we shall see.  Of the 7-8 guys I was talking to, & the 6 who actually set up dates, one has really made an effort.
