Birthday Weekend!

October 11, 2009

My weekend was great, but extremely unproductive, considering how much work I have.

T and I had a small birthday party at our apartment Saturday, and spent most of Friday night cleaning and shopping for it.  We probably spent $150 on snacks, alcohol, cake and other supplies, but ended up with 3 more bottles of wine than we started with, and quite a bit of snacks and alcohol left.  And a lot more cake than two people should eat by themselves.  And lots of beer left (I made T buy decent stuff because I figured there would be leftovers).  We definitely won’t be needing any alcohol for a long time!

I knew hosting a party was going to cost about that much.   We didn’t say BYOB, but most people did anyway.  Our neighborhood is pretty quiet, so we wrapped things up around 10:30 and most people joined us for a night out to the bars/clubs nearby.  I think we still annoyed the neighbors a bit, but we warned them, said we’d get everyone out early, and we don’t plan to make it a regular thing.

The other exciting event was a trapeze class on the Santa Monica Pier!  It was my parent’s birthday gift to me and T, and it was really fun.  It was quite expensive for what it is ($60/class!), but something I’d been wanting to do ever since I saw it on Sex in The City and found out there was one in town.  It’s actually a pretty good ab workout, and it was pretty exciting to fly through the air next to the ocean.  Loved it!

I’m going to pay for all the slacking off I did this week.

    Sounds fun! Happy belated birthday! Throwing parties always sounds pretty simple, but it always ends up for more work than you plan! But it’s usually worth it since they’re always fun. 🙂

    Happy Birthday!! The trapeze class sounds pretty amazing! That’s definitely something I’d love to try one day.

    I always wanted to do a trapeze class too. Glad it was as fun as it looked on SATC!
