Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog

My Weekend

First on Friday I went shopping to pick out some new clothes for work. 🙂 I got some sweaters and pants. I also got the copper bra I wanted. I also went to Tiffany’s and tried on the ring I wanted. MY RING SIZE IS 6, you know, in case any boys reading this want to buy it for me for Christmas. 😉

Friday night I went out with Nadia, Bryan, Jenny, and Adam to Olive Garden. My mushroom ravioli was yummy and of course there were lots and lots of breadsticks. The table next to us was having a birthday party or something and they had these kids who kept dancing and doing cheers. They were super loud and dancing around and really annoying and none of the parents or anyone even tried to get them to settle down. Towards the end of the night two of the girls picked the other one up by the arms and legs and started swinging her. Finally the dad came and stopped them and one of them started having a tantrum right under my feet. I kind of expected the dad to say I’m sorry to us or something, but nope.

Jenny and Adam called it a short night, so me and Nad and Bryan went to Olive or Twist, which is this cute little martini bar. It was a really nice place, but not that big. I had a yumyum peaches and cream martini and sipped some of Nadia’s raspberry and orange/chocolate ones. Mmmm. There was a little jazz ensemble playing who were pretty good, but being such a small place, definitely didn’t need to be microphoned. Nadia and I decided that the bartender should be my Mr. January. 🙂 and Bryan somehow thinks that I am a closet porn fiend. ???

Jenny and I went with Nadia to try on our bridesmaids dresses. They only have one size so we both had to try on a 10, which was quite big. Then the zipper broke 🙁 The dresses are really cute but there are these ribbons in the back that are supposed to be tied in a bow but we will not be doing so. We played around with them though and managed to make some massive Minnie Mouse bows on my ass. hehe

We stopped at David’s Bridal next and looked at shoes and saw what Nadia’s dress looks like (gorgeous) and tried on veils and tiaras. Then we hit California Pizza Kitchen for a late lunch. Mmm, I wasn’t in a pizza mood so I got the orange chicken lettuce wraps and ate them without the lettuce.

Nothing was going up at night so I spent the rest of the night doing homework and watching Totally Awesome on VH1.

Went to Ritz to get some 8x10s made so I can hang them up. They made me upload all of the photos to the computer and such myself now which sucks. I then went to Michaels to visit Jen and get her to make me some mats for some Kurt Halsey prints. Then I spent the rest of the day packing and purging despite the fact that I have nowhere to move to yet. Soon soon soon!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
