Musings: Woe is 332:27 PM
Or Me!Life at 33...is about the same as life at 32 ;) I'd love to sit here and tell you how amazing and exciting my birthday weekend was, but it really wasn't.
Please don't mistake this for me being upset or sad about my birthday, AT ALL! I must preface with, I've celebrated my birthday in larger fashion for most of the last two decades. This is honestly the first year I didn't do anything on what I'd deem a larger scale - no wine tasting trip, no trip to AZ, not even a night out at a club with dinner.
Birthday eve was a nice little girls night out for dinner with the Guidette and her (my new) friend Lauren who just got into town. The Guidette was sweet to take me out to dinner for my birthday, since she'd be in Napa on the real day. I picked a new local restaurant, Table Vine, and we drank wine and ate good food. I had a fun time laughing and drinking with these ladies! We ate so much, from a cheeseboard as an app, to our main course, to a lovely cheesecake slice for dessert. We won't count our glasses of wine, that's not classy or fun! It was a great way to start the weekend, minus the shitty (re: pouring rain) weather!
Just an average Saturday night of binge watching House of Cards. I take House of Cards as Netflix's early birthday present to me. With Fuller House already binged, I needed something else and it came at the perfect time! I think we are about halfway through it and it is getting soo good!
Sunday wasn't much more exciting. I did get to try a new breakfast spot, where waffles are the hero in every dish, at the Waffle Experience. It was good and I'd go back another time to try something else, but that's about it. Finally, around 6PM we met up with a couple friends at a local bar that I hadn't been too (but most people have already), Coin-Op Game Room, where they have a bunch of old school video arcade games. It was an interesting vibe there, since the Beer fest had probably just ended. It was a little nostalgia mixed with adult beverages, what isn't there too like?!?
Again, our night concluded with more House of Cards binging! It wasn't bad at all, it just wasn't what I'm used too. Maybe it is my new normalnow and I just need to acclimate. As I sit here today, I can't help but feel a little deflated. I would have loved to have been in Arizona, cheering on my SF Giants. I would have loved to have been crammed in a bus and drinking wine too. But I did love the fact that I was surrounded by everyone, adults and kids alike for this birthday. Everyone was included, which makes my heart full. But I can't sit here and still feel like something was kinda missing from my day...Maybe it's just the realization that things are meant to start changing...or maybe not...
