Ladies, do you have a man in your life who likes to golf?
Mine is a golf-fanatic. When he's not playing golf, he's watching it, working two golf-related jobs, getting twitter notifications and following every bit of news in the industry.
If he had it his way, he would play 54 holes every weekend - exactly what he's done the past few days if we include his Monday night round. I haven't taken up a passion for the sport myself, so since we've been together I've suffered the pains of watching Dan spend his weekends
with another woman on the golf course with his best buddies.
Doesn't he know how dangerous this could be? Leaving a 25 year old girl home alone on the weekend when there's Say Yes to the Dress marathons?!
Let's talk about what other trouble us ladies can get into when our guys are teeing it up.
We Watch 'Say Yes to The Dress" Marathons
Absolutely no shame, I spent more hours than I can count this weekend watching 'Say Yes to The Dress: Atlanta'. Now I have no idea what kind of dress I'd want, maybe one with pockets?
You can see how this could be dangerous for many reasons... I'm looking at dresses, thinking about my own future wedding (he hasn't even proposed), setting my own future wedding dress budget, thinking about colors, venue, setting, honeymoon, ring, future house, children's names, parenting style, how many children, saving for college.... see where I'm going. If he wasn't gone all day my mind would never go these places because quite frankly it all gives me a ton on anxiety to think about. Also, why are girls getting married at 17?? No.
Oh yes, all by myself I had that last swig of Buffalo Trace. There's no better feeling than sipping whiskey in the afternoon (while blogging) and not having a care in the world. If man-friend was here there would be sharing - which is not allowed when it comes to the last few sips of Buffalo Trace. He's going to come home, feel left out from the party and there's nothing left for him to enjoy.
We Work Out
Other than day drinking and lounging, boy being gone means the perfect excuse to get a long run in.
Definitely a good thing, but he pays for it double-time when I beg for a massage at night because I don't have the courage to bring out the
torture tube foam roll to do it myself.
This is really your own doing,
We Shop, DIY, Browse Pinterest and Pamper Ourselves
What do we do when our guys are out of the house? We turn to what we know - shopping, blogs, pinterest and mani-pedi's.
Actually not mani-pedi's because Dan likes those more than I do, but definitely internet shopping.
Now that I have a brand new shiny Amazon Prime account I spent way too much time this weekend browsing for everything from Paleo Cookbooks to fall booties.
Basically we internet creep while being fabulous.
We also get nails done, hair did, DIY Glitter projects half-way done and future tattoo's planned out.
We Nap All Day
You wake me up early for your tee time, you bet that I'm going to nap all day. Then after I nap all day, I'm not going to be ready to go to bed at 9pm like you are, and you will face the wrath of me in bed on my iPhone, sharing funny instagram videos, pictures of #instacute puppies, kittens and definitely some Jenna Marbles videos.
Okay, so you may not feel the same way I do and you actually go golfing with the boys like Brooke, but I just don't get it.
Linking up with fun ladies who had better weekends than I did!
