Counting Down the Days…

Happy Monday loves! My weekend was pretty mellow since I hardly left the house. Let’s just say Netflix was my companion and it certainly delivered. I watched Stranger Things (anyone seen it? it’s so good!), finished Total Divas (can’t wait until Total Bellas debuts in October), this weird movie called The Invitation, (it’s a psychological thriller, so intense my heart was still beating hard after it ended) if you watch it let me know what you thought.

I watched Power and the ending nearly killed me from heartbreak. I hate when couples breakup! I cried with the characters… *insert eyeroll here*. It’s crazy how TV characters take you back to a time when you felt the exact same way. I wanted to throw something at the TV, that’s how mad I was.

On a happier note, I booked my hotel for Galveston and I’m glad this hotel is close to the wedding ceremony and pretty affordable. I can’t believe in 5 days I’ll be well on my way to Galveston, even though I’m driving solo it’s going to come in handy listening to my free satellite radio and throw some new Frank Ocean in the mix. I can’t wait to see my BFF get married and get to meet The Marine.

Since I’m a bit of a control freak, I already hinted to him how he should look. Button down with slacks, or a blazer with no tie and slacks, trimmed beard. I held back from hinting at colors so that we match, gotta hold on to my crazy a little while longer.

As for me, I need to get my nails done as well as get a new dress. Most of my dresses are in storage so I have a valid reason, plus my storage is all the way in Plano (which is a 45 min drive). I’m hoping I’ll find a blush knee high dress, if it’s simple that’s fine but ideally I want it to have lace.

Regardless of how we look, we’re gonna have a grand time. It’s been a long time since I attended a wedding with someone I’m interested in. The past few weddings I’ve gone by myself or with a girlfriend. There’s nothing wrong with that, but this is just different in a good way.

Even though I was a bed potato (watched TV in my bed) all weekend, I was only getting recharged for the last week of training at work and the incredible road trip ahead. Countdown begins.

PS. I blogged this weekend, so if you missed it here’s how The Marine and I are back on. Click on the pic below.
