Weekend Update - Grad Party

Every time I write "weekend update" I think about Saturday Night Live. And Jimmy Fallon -he's hilarious by the way. So is Tina Fey and Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler. Just saying.

Yet again my weekend started on Thursday. And it was a damn good one at that. It started out calm, went to Wal Mart to pick up the last few things for Melissa's wedding shower. Then watched my brothers and their buddies work out (they do this every Thursday at my house.. it's an intense tire flipping, rope swinging, parachute running work out.) After that I went to the little bar by my house with the guys, and my friends Erin and Diana. From there we went and got some refreshing ice cream from a local join called King Kone. Then played some sand volleyball. yessss. in case you haven't realized I love playing volleyball, I love coaching volleyball, I love watching volleyball, I love volleyball. So that really topped off the night. When volleyball ended I went back to the little bar and hung with the guys some more. It was a great night overall.

The only thing I really did was go to my 7 week post-op appointment. Which took FOREVER. I seriously hate the Cleveland Clinic. For being one of the top ranked hospitals in the word/nation they suck. Always rescheduling my appointments, and taking forever when they actually keep them. agh. Don't get me wrong my surgeon did an amazing job and I'm grateful for that. But driving all the way downtown to just sit in the waiting room forever, and talk to the Doc for 15 minutes really pisses me off. But, he did give me the go ahead to eat soft foods again -shhh! don't tell him I diagnosed myself to be capable of that about 2 weeks ago. Anyways, once I finally got home I just watched some TV -yes, of course I watched Ghost Adventures. It's Friday. And you would not even believe what they did on this episode.. they had some guy build a pod thing that could create enough energy for a spirit to become a full body apparition and communicate with them. Needless to say they never caught anything in the pod. But it created a good laugh for me. Sorry, I just don't believe in that kinda stuff.. sure I think a few of my deceased family members watch over me and protect me, but demons and actual ghosts? Don't believe it for a second.

Went to Brian's friends graduation party. I've known his friend, and the family for years, they're family friends of ours. It was a BLAST. I brought my friend Erin and my new friend Diana. We just hung out with Brian and all his buddies  -Zach, Kyle, and Jimmy.. the usual gang. We stayed up pretty late playing beer pong and corn hole, and of course, I was drinking wine. Well at Brian's grad party last summer we burned our old couch at about 7am -yea, we're late partiers- so because we burned a couch, Brian's friend had to burn one too. There's not a whole lot that's better than sitting by a bonfire. Then in the morning we all went to breakfast at Waffle House -that place is kinda really gross. Well here's the photos::

Consisted of Melissa's Bridal Shower!! (I'll do a separate post all about that later) But I thought it went very successfully, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and I think Melissa had a great time too! Afterwards, it was more corn hole and basketball with Zach, Kyle, my Dad and my neighbor.

Overall, it was a GREAT weekend :)
