Today's #WeekendSnapshots is brought to you by the delicious Pan de Jamon that Jihane's dad made for our Friendsgiving lunch this weekend! It was the first time I've ver had it and although I'm not quite sure of all of it's ingredients, I can definitely say it was nomtastic!
FRIDAY | I met up with the HLB admin team for an event with LEVO and then we went for some tasty dinner. We lead such busy lives that it's hard for us to be available at the same time so we have to take advantage of the time we have sometimes. Margaritas were a must and the chisme was also present. It's nice to mingle with ladies that have the same culture as you but different backgrounds. I consider myself a great listener so learning more about these ladies has been a priority to me. Mainly because it's not just HLB that keeps us connected but it's our friendship as well. One that I hope we have for a very long time.
I received my Whataburger tumbler (also available in Stainless Steel only) Thursday night so of course, I pimped it for my #fridayshirtsteez along with my Whataburger shirt 😍 It's the most expensive cup I've ever purchased and even though I told Mama Carrizo I was ashamed of how much I spent, I'm so happy and proud to pimp it. Plus, it helps me drink more water since I'm not that big a fan of it.
SATURDAY | Baby showers at my age are part of the norm. Just like weddings. And occasional kid birthdays. Of course, my gifts would include some of the goodies that the mama to be put on her list as well as some #smallbiz goodies from Space Montrose. I've been there so many times and always walk by the baby clothes because there's no one in my life that has kids so why even stop? And I'm not trying to get that baby fever, yanno? I'm not even 100% sure that kids are in my future. I like them and would love to have at least one, but kids are forever and I can barely handle myself 😏
I wish I could say I gave her the pink Texas shirt and little cowgirl booties but I didn't. Instead, I went with a handmade Texas bib, some washable throw-up towels, and a cute believe in yourself shirt. I had a lot of fun and mingled with folks I haven't seen in a while. See, life gets complicated when you get older and you just don't have the same amount of downtime with the homies.
SUNDAY | Friendsgiving Lunch at Jihane's casa was tasty! Mama Carrizo made us some Argentinian empanadas and off I went on my hour drive to Jihane's. Haha! Lots of tasty food with a lot of amazing people. I met some of my friend's kiddos and their hubbies. It sounds strange but typically it's just the gals, yanno, so of course, we don't know the rest of their familia.
We also celebrated Jihane's son Sean's 11th birthday. Y'all know I made a fuss about not having a Chewbacca mask or the blue light up bracelet so Jihane hooked me up. I mean, I'm kind of the size of these kids, so why not take advantage, right? 😁
I'm grateful for these ladies and everyone else who takes the time out of their day to see how I'm doing or ask me for some help. Aside from being a good listener, I love to help those I care about. Whether it be with their social networks, to their phones not working, to asking me if they should wear Black chucks or Red chucks. The only way this shit works is if when I need something, they're there for me as well. Friendships don't work unless you do. Hell, relationships don't work unless you do.
