The Beauty of Saturday

on April 28, 2012

Somehow the last few weeks it has been hard for me to post on the weekends.  Oh I have managed to post one here or there, but it’s pretty difficult.  Especially Friday’s.  I work from 8:15 to 6 and usually have plans, or make spur of the moment plans.

Take yesterday for instance, I was on my way home and Angey (my BF) drove up next to me at a red-light and asked me what I was going to do for the night. Within minutes, like 45, we were in her living room and dancing to Just Dance 3………….again.  🙂   Two hours later, yes two hours, I was walking out the door and headed home.  Drenched in sweat.  We danced for two hours!!  It was so much fun!

It’s funny, I didn’t feel all that great Friday.  I think every few minutes I was yawning.  I felt tired, not sleepy, but tired.  I wanted to go home, get into my pj’s, put a movie in, and crawl into bed.  This is why I love my friends and family.   A lot of times being the “single” one, I have a tendency to seclude myself from others.  No, I am not weird.  I just like to be by myself.  It doesn’t bother me to spend some time alone.  Watching a movie, taking a drive, or even just being outside.  I can do it all by myself.  My family and friends get me out into the world!

Even today, I drove home after work and was going to spend the rest of the day cleaning and washing clothes.  My friend Diahann called me and wanted to know if I would ride with her to go get a few things.  Sure!!  We spent the rest of the day chatting and laughing with her little boy Calvin.  🙂  It was a good day.  We stopped by her in-laws house for a minute and if I could purchase a house and have it already furnished this would be it.




Beautiful isn’t it!



Back to what I was talking about…..  One of the reasons I think that I like to be by myself is because of my struggles with my weight.  Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of the statement, “put your big-girl panties on!” but I also think that scars can be so big that they do leave a mark.  Growing up heavy most of my life, forced me to rely on myself a lot.  Sure, I had my family, but I didn’t have my first relationship until I was 29.  This ended badly too.  This horrible relationship told me that I wasn’t good enough.  If I was by myself, I knew that I wouldn’t get hurt.  I tell you this to say that this is why I love my friends and family.  Why I am so thankful to have a job that frankly, on some days, it forces me to get out of bed.  My niece and nephew, who I absolutely adore and who reminds me what innocence is.  I am thankful for all of it.

I am sure this is coming out as a bunch of jumbled thoughts, but this is something that I have been thinking about for a few days.



Back to this awesome Saturday!

We stopped by the Lemon Tree in Benton today and of course picked up some fro-yo.




This is such a catchy tune!  😛


I have a big day tomorrow at church.  It’s fifth Sunday, and we always have a potluck after our church service.  🙂  I will stay, but I will bring my own food to eat.  🙂



Oh!! I almost forgot!!  My friend Diahann has one of these…..



She brought it to work today and we drank coffee all morning!  Well, I did.  🙂   She even let me borrow it for the weekend to see if I might be interested in spending the money on one.  I am liking it so far!


I even sported this shirt while we were out today..



At work…..



Diahann took my camera from me!!  🙂


I am on episode 5 of Season One of Desperate House Wives.  I might get sucked in. 😉


Have a great nigth!  I am off to get caught up on some of my favorite blogs!
