About What I Said When I Was Losing....

I feel like my weekends seem to be filled with just an absurd amount of smiling. But that's ok because I like smiling, smiling's my favorite.


Although my actual birthday isn't until December 17th, this weekend we had a joint birthday party for yours truly, and 5 other friends in our group who all have been cursed blessed with December birthdays. 

We had an 8 year old's dream party at the bowling alley. Luckily, when you turn 28 21 for the 7th time, you get to add cocktails! We had a super mega deluxe birthday package that included arcade game play, bowling, laser tag and billiards. I took this as an opportunity to wear my new favorite shirt from here.  









 
After bowling, the guys went and played laser tag. Laser tag is just not my thing, so I decided to throw a few more dollars on my game card and try my hand at this one game that was giving everyone hell all night long. You just hit a button, a ball drops and your goal is to get the ball in the jackpot slot. Sounds easy, but it was dang near impossible to do. Naturally, I decided to keep feeding that game my money because I'm an adult and I can spend my money how I see fit, duh. 

Then the most amazing thing happend. Wouldn't you know it, that ball dropped right in that jackpot slot and I screamed shrieked squealed pierced everyone's eardrums. If you live in the DFW area and you heard an unexplained high pitched yell, that was actually the sound of me screaming that you heard on Friday night around 10:45pm. Sorry about that... but that whole jackpot was 2700 tickets doe....








 
I spent my tickets very wisely....

10 packs of fundip
A new gun for the boyfriend. Gun brand was nerf
Some vintage Chanel fashion sunglasses
An eraser 


And yes, thank you for asking, I DID indeed wear them the remainder of the evening and into the next day. Wouldn't you? 

And when CB whipped all this out the next morning, I knew the fun was over and that was my cue to head home....







 
Duck hunting.... LOL NO. 

My new sunglasses even fit perfectly in my car's sunglass holder. Winning weekend, my friends.

  15. Happy early birthday! You have kinda become my fashion icon with your awesome shirts. Also, aren't arcade prizes so exciting, but also so horrible considering the amount of money you spend to get them? I keep going back...like a moth to a flame.
