Saturday was the engagement party. My co-worker at my full-time job gave me a head’s up to the food that she was serving; between fried chicken, pulled pork, and sandwiches, I knew I couldn’t eat any of it. On Friday, I reached out to a friend that used to work at my full-time job and asked if she wanted to meet up for dinner at Hip City Veg.
She agreed and also brought another friend that worked at the full-time job. It was so nice seeing Candice and Dani – I haven’t seen them since they left last October and it was so nice catching up. Hip City Veg was also delicious! We laughed a lot during the hour we met.
Candice dropped me off at the trolley to get to Cecelia’s engagement party. I arrived 15 minutes early but had the chance to meet Cecelia’s mother, a sweet Puerto Rican woman. The party started a half-an-hour later than expected, but we all had a great time celebrating Cecelia and her fiance, Nigel. It was a night of singing, dancing, and fun – Cecelia and Nigel were having the times of their lives, which is a great start to their journey toward married life.
I’m going to make Cecelia an album for her birthday. I was going to buy a scrapbook, but I am overwhelmed with Happiness Box stuff; I’m going to use Shutterfly and make her a book about the party.
