Saturday was originally going to be my bachelorette party (I finally had Anna tell me what it would’ve been; sounded pretty darn fun), so my sister’s flight into town was already booked. She landed Saturday morning, and my friend/ex-roomie/ex-bridesmaid Shelly came up from Champaign-Urbana. I’ve never really “gone out” for the evening around my hometown, but my mom suggested La Tasca in Arlington Heights, and it was an excellent idea.
Drank some red wine, ate some amazing tapas (I can’t get over how amazing the bacon wrapped dates and caramel flan were), talked talked talked, and later ate cookie dough. Yeah, I guess my appetite is back. Or at least when sweets and tapas and good friends are involved it is.
So, you’re witnessing the debut of my former-wedding-heels. Along with some added bling (of course), these were to be my special shoes. One bright side: I bought all wedding accessories with the idea of wearing it all for years afterward in mind…so all the purchased jewelry/shoes are very wearable. Still a pretty depressing silver lining right now (don’t see those wedding-day-associations ever vanishing), but oh well. I’ve wanted a pair of nude heels for a long time.
I just don’t feel like a single lady at all, but I guess that’s what I am.
