Hello, it’s me.

I apologize for my absence. Daylight savings time really screwed me. Also, I was recovering from a ridiculous weekend with my BFF.

Cheryl came to Seattle for Halloween. There aren’t enough adjectives to describe her time here. I will sum it up with this: ludicrous. Like, we went to lunch, dinner, and drinks. Then we ordered a Papa John’s. Night ONE.

We can’t be stopped when we get together. Mix that with costumes & it’s absolutely over. We decided on being Black Swan weeks ago. Like, Natalie Portman’s acclaimed role. I would be the black swan & Cheryl the white swan, obviously. Tutus & leotards ordered, the whole nine yards. Halloween comes. We’re all, “let’s get brunch & then we’ll come home & put on costumes.” Do you think we made it into our costumes on Halloween? We made it to tacos & pumpkin cider but we did not make it into our costumes. Priorities, people.
