A Night Out With Stephanie

In the evening, Stephanie came over around 6:30pm. She curled my hair and we drank a couple White Claws. We were going to call for an Uber around 9:30pm. She had never been to a night club before. We were going to go all out. Once we got into the Uber, he drove us down to the Northshore to Tequila Cowboy.

Thankfully, there was no cover. It was still a little early, so I showed her around the night club. When we first walked in, we walked into the Country room. There was a live band playing.  I showed her to the karaoke bar where Todd the bartender still bartends. He used to bartend at Saddle Ridge. He used to comp me with drinks back when I went to the club non stop when I was 21 and 22. I introduced him to Stephanie. We ordered our drinks and I kept my tab open. I wasn’t expecting to get comped, because the 30s are for paying for your drinks.

I showed Stephanie the 90s/hiphop room. It wasn’t too packed yet. I told her this place will be crowded later on. She wanted to go back to the country room, so we went back to the country room and danced on the outskirts of the dance floor. Eventually, we danced in the middle of the dance floor.

At one point, we were dancing and a man made eye contact with me as he walked by and I said, “Oh my God, Mike!” He smiled and said, “Danielle, what’s up!?” We hugged. I introduced him to Stephanie. I said, “Stephanie, this is Mike I have known him since I as a senior in high school. He was a club promotor back when I was 21. He is the reason I was Mardi Gras Queen back in 2013.” Mike and I laughed. He said, “We go way back.” When he walked away, I thought wow time really flies. The scene has changed since I was 21. The 21 year olds look like 12 year olds, and I am only 31. It was 10 years ago that I went out every weekend.

Around 1:00am, we cashed out and our bar bill was only 23.50 for each of us. I was shocked actually. We got comped. 🙂

At around 1:30am we got an Uber back to my house. Drew was on his way back from hanging out with Stephanie’s husband, Mike. We did a spousal exchange. 🙂

Great Gatsby Nails

I got my nails filled in Oakland on my lunch break. They were in such bad shape. I had an appt for Friday, but I already had so much planned, and homework that I didn’t want to wait. Drew was off on Friday, as well.

On my lunch break, I went to S & T nails in Oakland. I went for an Art Deco design on my ring finger, since we are going to The Great Gatsby ballet on Saturday. They look pretty good! I have been to that salon before.IMG_0953.jpg

After my nail appointment, I was 15 mins late coming back from lunch, but I made it up that day. I was stuck on the phone in my office until 5pm. I was so ready for Friday to get here!

After work, Drew texted me and asked if I could meet him in Hogwarts (the 1st floor of the Cathedral). He said, he had something to give me. 🙂 I love it when he surprises me.

When I arrived to the Cathedral, he handed me a Pitt University store shopping bag. I looked at him and said, “what is it?!” I took the bag from him and opened it. It was a great Gatsby tote!

I was so surprised. He knows The Great Gatsby is my favorite book! My absolute favorite book! He said, “I saw this and I thought of you. They only had one left. They also had a wristlet too, but I figured you would want the tote more.” I was so touched by it. It is the little things.

Also, today, is my parents 37 year marriage anniversary!
