Saturday Night Blogging

Macbook party!

So ... this is what my mid-20s look like. Was it really only a year or two ago I was pounding back beers at Fred's? (Oh wait, that was last weekend ...)

I'm writing this post as Annie and Wendy are launching their own blogs. Apparently, you can get a lot done at 2 a.m. when you decide to stay in.

Of course, a night with the girls wouldn't be complete without drinks. My home bar is running low on ingredients, but we pulled together enough to make three different cocktails. From left to right is the Killer Kool-Aid (vodka, melon liqueur, amaretto and cranberry juice), Bacardi cocktail (light rum, lime juice, water and grenadine, garnished with a cherry) and the Blue Lagoon (light rum, lime juice, blue curacao and pineapple juice).

But back to the blogs ... Annie is the Future and Wendrs (name pending?) are up and running now. What a crazy night. I feel like that's a phrase I used to use only when I'd end up at Ihop at 2 a.m. after last call—oh, how far I've come.

I'm very excited that the first thing we did tonight before the blogs was book our trip to Chicago in September. It's going to be amazing—we're staying at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel off Michigan Avenue, and I can't wait to show Annie and Wendy around to some of my favorite places. I should be a good tour guide by then, after heading out with Viet in August. I envision lots of pizza in my future.

In the spirit of blogging about my day in reverse chronological order, I got my hair cut this morning (at Eden Salon in HB—he only person I will let touch my hair is Lindsey, and she's seriously the best). I've been having serious hair issues lately, and really wanted to try something new. I haven't had a new style since 2008, so I'm long overdue.

Not sure if I'm loving the bangs yet, but I'm trying to tell myself that if Taylor Swift did it, then I can make it work. It's a totally different look and for better or worse, I'm stuck with it for a while.
