So you may remember I was supposed to move yesterday… Welp, I did not. Sadly, my move-in date got pushed back to this Friday, as they are doing renovations on my apartment and aren’t finished them yet. Meh meh meh.
I am definitely disappointed; I was REALLY looking forward to moving. But what can ya do? At least I have a few extra days to pack, which is a very good thing. I have been slack-a-lackin’ on the pack-a-lackin’.
Anyway, let’s do some weekend recappage. I have a TON of pictures, so gird your loins.
Saturday night was my good friend Emily’s 29th birthday.
Emilio is one of my oldest friends. We have been friends since Grade 1! We have been through a lot together, and she stood by me during the Captain Hook incident (and kindly pointed out that I had Egg McMuffin on my face).
Emily and her lover Corey hosted a party at their crib on Saturday night, and the Facebook invite said there was going to be pony rides!
I found it really funny that most of the people who commented on the event page were like “OMG, is there actually going to be pony rides?!” and Emily responded to none of them, thus luring people in… Because really, who can resist a party with pony rides?
It was a dirty trick. There were no pony rides (I knew she was joking, but it was funny that people actually thought she was serious).
Pony rides or no pony rides though, I had a great time. Some of my best minxes were in attendance…
And there was a LOT of food.
This may be the best snack room of all time. I love how it was decorated in pure pink, like a child’s birthday party. And I loved the assortment of snacks going on in here. I kept dropping by for a little face-stuffing action.
The chocolate chip cookies on the top left were amazing. I had three of them.
And this table totally reminded me of elementary school lunches. I was so impressed with the selection. Gummies, Tootsie Rolls, and those little cupcakes with the white swirl icing! I can’t remember the last time I’ve had those. I shoved a package in my purse to take home with me in the morning. I’m kicking myself for not taking a package of those brownies with me also…
We had a pretty awesome dinner as well.
So much for eating less/healthier. Ah well. I can’t pass up barbecue fare (can anyone?).
I honestly felt like I was at a carnival. Em has a popcorn machine…
And a cotton friggin’ candy machine.
That thing was amazing. All you have to do is throw in a couple of hard Jolly Rancher candies, swirl your stick around a bit…
And BAM. Cotton Candy.
I think I need to get one of these… It would probably be pretty dangerous for me though, I’d be eating cotton candy all day long.
Also, remember the Princess cutout we brought to the bar for Corey’s 30th birthday party?
It made a reappearance. And it had a pirate friend.
Leanne and I had some fun with those.
Emily has a million hats kicking around for some reason, so we also had an impromptu hat party.
And a sparkler party…
And a bonfire!
I felt like I was camping.
There were definitely some childhood elements to this party, but we managed to grown-upify it with some booze. Like birthday cake shots…
(with birthday cake vodka)
And frozen shot glass shots also.
I reallllly liked those.
So I need to take a second to highlight a few of Emily’s gifts.
For our friend Mark’s birthday a couple months ago, Corey and Emily got him an abnormally large stuffed bear.
(Oh, and I am wearing the same shirt. Good thing I am not a celebrity.)
The bear was a joke gift, obviously, as what are you going to do with that thing besides have photoshoots with it? So Dawn and Mark decided to repay Emily by giving her a picture they randomly acquired.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Corey and Emily liked it.
Obviously it had to go on the wall.
Emily also received the world’s longest beard.
Which was passed around…
I am a beardo. Someone told me to look seductive for the photo, so there you go, and you are welcome. I do think it gives me a wise and stately demeanor at least.
Anyway, fun times. Fun, fun times. Happy Birthday to my lovely Emilio!
29 years from now I hope we are still throwing parties just like this one!
