Before i get to my recap, I'm going to make a confession... In real life i'm a bit shy
It used to be really bad, i mean, before i would make a phone call i would write down what i wanted to say so i wouldn't get flustered
The real turning point for my shydom (new LRT word, i should start a LRT dictionary!) was in College when i attended a small campus of a larger college and i knew all my teachers and fellow students and started to become very confident in who i was growing up to be, i remember giving a speech to be a member of the student council in front of the whole college, a speech, in front of people and i didn't pass out, hello progress! (plus i was totally voted in over several other candidates, yay me)
But lately with BF being in this wedding i've realized that when in social situations with lots of people I don't know very well I revert to shydom and come of as a giant snobby snotty bitch
I avoid eye contact with everyone but my iPhone, my phone is my awkward crutch, technology has seriously set us shy people back many years!
I'm very pleasant when people start conversations with me but i'm nowhere near the happy, bright, funny girl i am in real life
The real me lurks somewhere hidden behind the bored looking eyes and the constant sighs
One on one situations and small groups with people i know, i am chatty, amusing and take most conversations to "the dirty place", i laugh loudly and smile with my eyes
But if we are in a large group and i don't know you well you won't get to see this part of me and i apologize for that
This is something I want to work on and for everyone that reads this blog that actually "knows me" thanks for being patient and discovering the real me, for those who don't and have come across me and maybe thought i was a little rude, i apologize and hopefully reading this blog gives you a little insight into what i'm really like and maybe one day i'll show you the charmer that is lurking under here
Okay, enough self realization confession time! Lets talk weekend recap
Friday: After a long day of having Royal Wedding fun at work, I attempted to dress shop which resulted in nada, then i decided to cheer myself up by attempting a new self tanner since we haven't exactly had much sunshine here in Ontario to get that sunkissed glow i like having at fancy events
The self tanner (which shall remain nameless) came in the form of cloths and left with me a horrible smell and no tan at all, WTF? I did have orange-ish hands though, i called them my oompa loompa mittens
Rest of the night was spent being stinky, eating pizza and taking a late night run to Dairy Delite and inhaling what is the most perfect raspberry sundae ever, mmmmmm - BF always knows to cheer me up with hugs and dessert!
Saturday: I drove BF to Stoneycreek, did some shopping for something to wear and ended up with too many dresses, and then before you knew it, it was wedding time so i hauled my pretty party dressed self back to Stoneycreek and watched our good friends get their Happily Ever After - awwwww :o)
Sunday: Slept as late as possible which was only 8am, sigh! Then it was time to get ready for another party - I baked cupcakes from scratch for my little sisters 30th birthday, woot woot!
