Best part ever?
Cory and I got to stay for cake, which lets be real here, is the only reason anyone goes to weddings anyways. We never get to stay for cake, we always have to leave before cake, for the kiddddddds, but not last night. So, to make up for all that lost cake, I had two! Holla!
Down side? BUG HEAVEN. Oy Vey. And, I looked freaking adorable in all my 9 month pregnant glory, until you got to my feet. But thank YOU, Old Navy, for making flip flops in every color for only a buck.
Oh ya, and the crazy lady that sat next to us for the entire reception.
She was following us around, talking the whole time, about our tats and our colors and how adorable we are. Then we had to fix her chair, she somehow developed a nick name for one of us in all of 3.49 seconds that stuck ALLLLL NIGHT LONG, and....she had crazy eyes.
Oh, you know crazy eyes.
But then- all of a sudden, it comes out. She is a teacher. Teaching the same EXACT subject that I want to be teaching, in the ONLY district that is actually hiring right now, AND she is a consultant and advocate in the district.
So, turns out- crazy lady is my new BFF, and I spent the rest of the night clinging to her every word. Turns out, she freaking LOVES me, and (after two, then three, STRONG drinks) she was pretty rad.
So, me and my new BFF have exchanged ALL of our contact info, and we have a K-I-T date set.
Score one for me crazy cat lady! (I don't know if she actually has cats, but it adds to the illusion)
Today, I am paying the price for all those fish tacos, endless diet cokes, and delicious cake. Quietly, at home, with only the wee one, dreaming of all the cats we all know I will own in a few decades. And all the old newspapers stacked in corners, with expired coupons just waiting to be spent. Lets be real here folks, there was a reason we hit it off right quick, crazy cat lady and I.
