Greetings, friends! I hope you’re having a good weekend. I’m happy to report that I survived axe throwing… and I learned how to spell it. Ha!
Survival was really my only goal, and that was about the extent of my success. I was by far the worst in our group, but the guy who runs the place was great. He tried his best to help me, bless his heart.
I only stuck it two or three times the whole night, and I threw it a lot, but I did make the bullseye once, so there’s that! Here I am after my score, looking a tad manic.
My bigger issue was what to wear. As you can see, I went very casual with a thermal tee, high rise grey jeans, and my P448 sneakers. I threw my faux leather puffer on top because it was a cold night. We also went out for drinks afterwards, so it made my outfit a little more leveled up for that.
I considered wearing the shacket outfit from the featured image at the top of this post, but it seemed a little too literal. Plus, the henley that I would have worn under the shirt jacket has an exaggerated curved hemline, and the sides are quite short, so I decided I wouldn’t be comfortable in that.
I actually tried on a few different tops and stood in front of my mirror and lifted my arms up as if to throw an axe, to make sure I wouldn’t be exposing my entire midsection… thank goodness for high rise jeans!
Men really have it easy. They never have to consider such things. Paul walked through the room while I was engaged in this experiment, glanced over at me for a second, shook his head, and kept walking. Smart man.
So yeah, a fun time was had by all, and I would definitely recommend trying axe throwing if you’re looking for a fun activity to do with friends.
I spent much of the rest of the day at the mall with R. We had a blast spending her birthday gift cards and Christmas shopping. Once we tired of that, we stopped into the Nordstrom Cafe for lunch. She’s a great shopping companion. It reminds me of the days when I used to go shopping with my mom. We haven’t done that in a long time.
Today is D’s birthday, so I’ll be making him a cake this afternoon. I always use this Hershey’s recipe. I usually cook one of his favorite meals, but he hasn’t made any requests this year, so I may do a stir-fry. I’ve been making this stir-fry recipe for 20 years, and it’s always a hit. The original recipe had walnuts in it, but D’s allergic, so now I use water chestnuts for a bit of crunch.
His other favorite is Tilapia Parmesan. Wow, those are horrible pictures. You can see why I chose the fashion angle when I decided to niche down and drop the other topics from my blog. Although, my fashion pictures at the time weren’t much better. We’ve come a long way, baby!
One more random thing I want to mention: I’ve heard from a few people who are no longer getting my emails. I did change email newsletter providers, so if you’re signed up and aren’t receiving them, first check your junk or spam folder. If you find it in there, mark it “not spam” and move it to your inbox. You can also add my email ([email protected]) to your contacts. Both of these actions signal to your email provider that you want to get my emails.
If you can’t find my latest emails anywhere, they are probably bouncing. Try unsubscribing and subscribing again using this link. If you still don’t get tomorrow’s email, let me know and I’ll see what I can do on my end.
On that note, I better wrap this up because it’s time for me to get ready for church. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
