Memorial Day Weekend!

This past weekend could not have gone better! Early friday night, I met up with my good friend Jim and his new girlfriend, Jolene. It was my very first time meeting her, and I am seriously so glad Jim introduced us! She's wonderful. We met up in Providence, of course Muldowney's, and enjoyed the beautiful weather sitting outside. Jims friend also showed up, and we ended up at a birthday party at the News Cafe in Pawtucket. The night was just perfect, and ended well too.

Saturday night, I convinced Lorena to come over and go out for karaoke, so back to the spot we went. We spent the entire night outside, listening to snippets of drunk people singing when the door opened, making friends, laughing. Typical night there. :)


Sunday was by far one of the coolest days. Lorena and I were invited out to go boating with our friends (haha- Muldown bartenders) Johnny, Ron and Kevin. We spent almost the entire night at Oakland Beach in Warwick- fishing, swimming, almost flying off the boat... lol. The fog rolled in very fast and thick, so we headed for land. We walked through a random carnival next to the beach and parked our wet butts in front of the fire pits they had in back of Marley's. Fireworks and the ocean right in front of us- too cool. Afterwards, we ate our body weight in fried clams and chowda over at Iggy's. YUM. The night was still pretty young when we left Warwick so we decided to go check out what was going on in Providence. It turned out to be totally worth it. Once again reclaiming my chair outdoors, I had a front row seat for illegal fireworks in the middle of downtown Providence. EPIC. Lighting them off right in the middle of the street haha it was like a professional display. We ended up leaving about an hour after closing, just hangin' with Tom, headed home with Lorena and went to bed.

Today was a chill day. I had to deal with a popped tire, but I learned how to change it myself, which is a win. Gabe and I went on a motorcycle ride and I picked Ari up from Chucks. She's obsessed with being barefoot outside, so she ran around for a while before it was dinner time and the usual routine. Tonight she told me I was the best mommy; I so almost cried. The time is flying.. Last week was her half birthday, and for the sake of it only coming once a year, I let her choose what she wanted for dinner. Ice cream was her first choice hey, why not? We ended up at Lincoln Creamery with vanilla and coffee ice creams. Ari about ate all of mine, and then sat in the rest, crushing the styrofoam haha. All I could do was laugh. <3



She was being so silly, I kept trying to push her back a little to get a good photo but she kept shaking her head and moving forward haha. Ari really does hate the camera


















I'm not quite sure I know what a "yard sald" is.... haha

I'm excited to have only a 4 day work week ahead of me, however I'm sure it's going to be ridiculously busy. The kittens have opened their eyes, and oh my god. They are just the sweetest things on earth. Photos tomorrow!
