First Blate & Weekend Things

*Spoiler alert for those who watch the Amazing Race.  Don't read the last sentence if you haven't watched it yet! 

Dear Monday,

How does it feel to be the most hated day?  Today I particularly don’t like you because I just got the “you look tired today” aka “Meg, you look like crap WTF.”  So ya, I love hearing that. 

Meg Who Looks Like Crap Today


Anyways, moving along, I don’t want to think about the fact that it’s Monday anymore because I had a friggin fantastic weekend.  Friday started with the bf coming up to where I work and meet a friend for dinner.  We had dinner and drinks at an Irish bar, I couldn’t not have the Shepard’s Pie and I was not disappointed.  I ate every last bite.


Saturday was the big day!  As in I went on my first BLATE ever.  But not before going on a walk with the bf and pup to grab some coffee.  I had to put that in there because it’s those little moments that I love the most. 

My first blate experience couldn’t have gone better!  I met Melissa outside Patachou and of course hugged liked we have known one another for ever.  Honestly, I wasn’t even nervous for the blate, we had been chatting for a few days and we just instantly clicked.  I was nervous that I no longer had any friend game though.  It’s been a while since I have tried to make a new friend.  I guess I wouldn’t use the word try, because do you actually try to make a friend?  No.  Anyways, I think I still have it so that’s all that matters. 

Spending 7 bucks on one mimosa is just stupid so we came up with the idea of having a car party in the parking lot and bringing our own mimosas.  I brought the OJ and Melissa brought the champagne.  Keeping it classy folks, that’s just how I roll.

After we finished the bottle off we headed inside for brunch and again just had so much to talk about.  We headed to the Fashion Mall afterwards and goofed around and looked at all the expensive clothes and furniture we wish we could have.  We did end up both purchasing scarfs and headbands!  I thought about getting this mug “Hell Yes” because I mean why not?  For some reason it didn’t end up making it to the register.

Because we just weren’t ready to part ways yet we got a drink and an appetizer at The Cheesecake Factory! I seriously had so much fun and couldn’t have had a better first blate experience!  I’ve been envious of everyone who have met friends through blogland and now I’m part of that! So yayyyy!  We’ve already made plans to hang out again and go on a double date with our Philips (our bf/husbands both are named Philip), if that isn’t a match made in blogland than I don’t know what is! :)  And go read her blog recap because it's pretty much how I feel too!  

Since I was down in Indy I thought I would go surprise my niece and nephew.  Best idea ever.  I got to snuggle, be goofy and finally got to see FROZEN!  My nephew even got on my phone and started taking kissy selfies.  That might be the only time that, that face is actually cute.  It was a fun little afternoon and my brother made some really delicious grilled pork chops with fresh peaches for dinner.  

The rest of the night was spent snuggling with my Dragon.  The bf got her a new collar and she of course had to show it off! :)  The color he picked wouldn't have been my first choice but because Dragon is just friggin badass she can pull it off! 


Sunday involved a lot of eating.  We went for breakfast at our usual Sunday spot, Bob Evan's and Phil's Mom met us.  I felt a little bit better because the bf and I did go for a long walk/he biked after a minor misunderstanding between us.  Aka we had a little fight because I think he can read my mind and he cant. SMH. Anyways we made up and all is good!  After a little nap we went over to the bf's parents for dinner, grilled stuffed chicken, homemade pasta salad and GRILLED CORN.  I will be number 2'ing corn for days because I just couldn't stop eating it. TMI. 

No weekend is complete without 60 minutes and the season finale of the Amazing Race!  And I'm a little too happy that Rachel and Brendan came in third!  

The bf on his bike just might be the cutest thing ever.  #mancrushmonday


  1. OH MY GOSH, Nothing made me happier on Sunday than Rachel coming in third! I know that is really mean of me to say, but she's so annoying.

  2. I ALREADY CHATTED THIS TO YOU BUT I'M SERIOUSLY ALL CAPS EXCITED THAT YOU USED THE STEPBROTHERS GIF THAT I USED THIS MORNING TO DESCRIBE OUR BLATE!!!! Thank goodness we both know now for sure that we're actually great together because we already have so many more plans lined up! I think we should add hiking to our list; hookah + hiking! Love love love you!!! xoxo

  3. i just can't get on board with amazing race this season because they brought back that annoying girl from big brother.

  4. How fun that you got to blate it up this weekend!!!! That is seriously the BEST part of blogging!

    Dragon is absolutely beautiful! Love her new collar.

    I still haven't seen frozen.

  5. this is so awesome! i love that both of your significant others are named Philip! sounds like a ton of fun!

  6. So great that you had your first blate. And your dog is gorgeous ... hehe even with a neon collar. She is working it!

  7. The ending of amazing race was perfect! Brendon and Rachel deserved everything they got. I couldn't believe just how crappy they were being even in that final episode! And it saved us from baby least for a little while longer.

  8. I couldn't stand watching Brendon & Rachel - it was miserable. I'm so happy that they came in 3rd place. I felt bad for every cab driver that they had on the race. I loved the winners! Also, super jealous of your blate. I remember the nervous feeling leading into it and then within 5 minutes, everything is TOTALLY normal. Hopefully they are all that easy.

  9. Fuck. Usually I don't put out on the first date but I might have to in order to top this! ;P

  10. Brendon and Rachel are CRAZY- I watched them both times on Big Brother. I LOVE the stepbrothers GIF. It sounds like you all had a really great blate!

  11. Aren't blates the coolest? I remember being so nervous before my first one, but it's amazing how quickly you fall into a comfortable place where you feel like you already know the person! Also, nothing beats Patachou.

  12. I can't wait to go on a blate one day, this looks like so much fun!
