Girls Night

This pat weekend I got together with an amazing friend that I’ve known since the first day of High School. It was fun to do some shopping and catch up over burgers and fries.

We did some people watching (and there’s A LOT to talk about in this mall), some updating on her upcoming wedding preparations and of course talked about our ex-boyfriends, you know…the usual girl talk 😀

We went to Johnny Rockets for some guilt-free burgers, fries and chocolate milkshake. Doesn’t it seem that when you’re sharing “bad” food with a close friend it feels like it almost doesn’t count as “bad”…that it’s justified? Hehehe, maybe it’s just me 😀

And of course I got to try on her beautiful, HUGE engagement ring…aahhh, so pretty on my short stubby fingers hehehe.

Like the coral color on my nails? It’s Essie of course. Speaking of nail polish, I must share with you what a nail polish freak she is…just look at her bag!!

I think it has to be like 5 lbs heavy! She has every color imaginable, just look at those corals, pink and blues…!!! I swear I think I could paint my nails a different color combination every week for a year and still have options left. I love having her as a friend 😛

Spending time with this old friend reminds me of this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”

I love being able to be silly, crazy and 100% myself with her.

Lesson of the day: Don’t take your friends for granted, nurture your friendships the same way you would a relationship.  Everyone needs special love and attention.

Much love, Elisa.

Even at a very young age I knew how to party…put on a big bow, grab your best friend and a bottle of bubbly!

My friend and I threw a “Dont need a reason to say I love you” pre-valentine party. We made a cake which we then decorated with my hand made flowers. We made heart-shaped empanadas with cream-cheese and guava filling. They were delicious, warm and flakey. 

The cake was regular cake mix but saturated with a condensed milk and Jack Daniel’s reduction. One cake was covered with crushed cookies and the other just had the creamy frosting.
