EPIC Weekend

I had a pretty epic weekend.

There was a birthday dinner Friday night where my friend and I enjoyed two bottles of wine. To be fair, dinner consisted of 4 appetizers, 2 salads, 2 pastas, 3 entrees and a vegetable, and 2 desserts.  It took like 4 hours.  And there was dancing.

But I still slept til noon on Saturday. 

A friend and I had breakfast at Waffle House.  And when I say breakfast, I mean 1pm.

I actually eat at Waffle House quite often all things considered.  It's usually pretty uneventful, but this visit was epic.  We didn't talk to each other the entire time we were in there.  It's hard to explain, but there was a moment when I told him I felt like I was sitting in the middle of a reality tv show.

There was the table behind us that kept adding a new person every 5 minutes and needed something new from the waitress every time she came back.

There were 4 cooks and 6 servers, and they all kept snapping and yelling at each other.

Our waitress answered her cell phone.

The servers asked one guy when he came in why he didn't bring them Krisy Kreme donuts. (I assume he is a regular and he has done this before.)

There was a guy talking on the phone to someone and kept telling this person, "well, I love you like a brother man, and I just wanted to hear your voice" and told him a story about visiting his mom in a hospital.

And we saw a lot of food get thrown away because orders were cooked wrong.

It was nuts. 

I got to meet up with Steph and her hubby for a bit since they were in town for a wedding.

I went to a birthday cookout and realized we must be getting old because it was mostly married couples... and there were kids running around.

Sunday I was able to have brunch with Steph and her husband before heading with a friend to the Titans vs. Lions game.  It was the wildest game I have ever seen.  Crazy surprise plays.  A 105 yard touchdown.  A guy jumping over another guy's head to catch a ball that should have been impossible to catch.  Then we were winning 41-27 with less than 2 minutes to go when the Lions scored twice and tied it up.  We finally won in overtime.  And I determined that I know enough about football that I could probably get a job as a replacement ref.

By the time we got home Sunday night, I was all too happy to take a shower, get some Chipotle and watch a movie on the couch.

Seriously... sometimes my life is so much fun I can hardly believe it.  There are so many amazing people around me that I get to spend my time with.  I have moments where my life still isn't exactly where I want it to be, but I'm glad that I am able to remember to enjoy where I'm at as I'm on my way to wherever I'm going.
