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.
