Cup Size, Coffee & Conversation

How's the for a title?  I'm thinking the term "cup size" may have grabbed your attention.  Well I'm referencing this Saturday when I met my good friend "That's Sassy!" (the bride) with another good friend (AP -bridesmaid) to get fitted for our bridesmaid dresses.  I haven't seen AP in such a long time and it was wonderful to have a little reunion and catch up.  The three of us have been friends since kindergarten and are all from the same small town.  AP is also getting married this spring so we had a lot of talking to do.

We met at David's Bridal to try on our dresses.  That was the first time I've been to a large bridal gown shop like that on a weekend.  Wow.  It was busy and filled with girls running around.  Actually, I heard the lady welcoming people at the front door turning people away because all of the appointments were filled for the day.  I had no idea.  Luckily, our bride is very organized and already had an appointment for AP and I.  This is where the term "cup size" comes into play. 

It's a strapless dress (not the easiest dress to wear when you have a minimal chest) and I was concerned that everyone might get a peep show when I hit the dance floor and get my arms shaking in the air.  Fortunately, I was able to get a dress with a small and tight cup size that felt pretty secure.  So watch out YMCA.  (Actually, the bride informed me that that song will not be playing at her wedding. That's fine with me! But if it does come on, you better believe I've good to go.)

Afterwards we headed down the road to a coffee shop to catch up.  Three hours later we said goodbye!  The time flew by and it was really wonderful to catch up.  There is nothing like a good friend.  And these two girls are both great.  We had so much information to share with one another; I can't wait to have another outing with them.  We decided that we don't want to go that long of a time before getting together again so hopefully we'll do dinner soon!

{Moving backwards to Friday night now.  . .}  I got home from work and was pretty tired but with a little push from the BF (who I'm going to start referring to as T because I think the BF is pretty impersonal) and my friend Jess and her boyfriend, I got changed and we headed to a delicious Irish restaurant/bar.  It was actually really fun and the live music was awesome.

Sunday I attempted to use my crock pot again but I don't think it came out that great.

I added two center cut pork chops, can of cream of mushroom (reduced fat) soup, sweet onion, garlic, and peas.  I put it on low for about 8 hours.  I didn't actually eat any of it but was planning on eating it tonight.  I need to enhance my cooking and stop leaning so heavily on my cream of mushroom soup.  Actually, I read a really great recipe for buffalo chicken sandwiches made in a crock pot today and I would like to try that out this week.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and if you haven't already, don't forget to enter the giveaway.  The drawing happens in two days!
