All Partied Out

I know I am getting older when I type these words - All Partied Out- but I am!!! We had a black tie "Oscars" party to attend Saturday which was a benefit for our local hospital. It was a fun time. Back when I was around 22 (which wasn't THAT long ago, but sure feels like it was)I developed this lovely little habit of having sleepless nights if I have more than say 3 drinks. Perfect timing since I was a senior in college!! Well, I am quite dismayed to tell you that this has NEVER gone away. Some nights are worse than others, but this particular Saturday was one of the worst to date.

I had 3 (ok maybe 4) drinks over a 5.5 hour time span and got exactly one hour of sleep that night. Sunday was a complete waste for me (although I am almost done the seven up series). I do realize that the logical solution would be to drink water or limit it to 2 and no more, but common sense is clearly not prevailing.

Black tie events, not my thing. Figuring out what to wear is always especially stressful and I just don't love it. I'd much prefer a casual nice dinner out with friends! I guess I can suck it up for once a year - that's definitely my max!




Hope your weekend was fun and more restful than mine! I'll leave you with this to ponder... Which would you prefer? Your date/husband to be the wallflower type (read: my husband) refusing to dance with his lovely wife (read: me) or a wildly uncoordinated guy who loves to dance the night away (read: some unknown guests spotted). I truly can't decide.....

Well...I am married to the wildly uncoordinated guy who wants to be on the dance floor! LOL! I love to dance and I am not all that coordinated either...we probably make quite the scene for spectators! haha

I honestly think being fun and spontaneous with disregard for other's thoughts on your dancing wins, and wins big. I hate being the dork dancing with the other married couples because mine won't move!

Ok, if you're going to keep rubbing your exciting weekends in my face, I'm going to have to stop reading your blog and take your name off of my list. Spice Girls and John Denver one weekend, laser tag the next, and now black tie! You are one wild and crazy girl. I think I'm jealous!

Oh yeah, can I expect eight ball predictions tomorrow?

Well that was a stupid comment...even a magic eight ball can't make predictions without actually seeing the contestants perform. What I meant was can we expect predictions on Thursday?

I have to tell you hubby and I have both said we cannot drink anymore! Too old and dying the next day because of lack of sleep and hangover. Then we do it again. We're retarded. I say the guy who dances like a goof. I like to dance!
