When I was younger, Friday and Saturday nights were synonymous with clubbing. I loved the thrill of getting ready and picking my outfit, a thrill which reached a crescendo when I met up with my friends, heard the beat of the music pounding, and had a drink in hand to sip on. Nowadays, though, there are oodles of reasons why I don't do the bar star routine on weekends anymore: I'm simply too tired after a week of work; I'd rather hang out with the boy and have dinner and watch a movie; a late night out makes me sleep in and leaves me feeling trashed the next day when I should really tackle some of the things on my to-do list; and so on.
Last weekend I made a special exception for a very special friend who was back in town after a long, long time. Self-consciousness and a desire to stay warm prompted me to layer the new top I'd bought in Portland on top of my AA dress. It was a fun out-of-the-ordinary weekend activity, but by the time next weekend rolls around, all I'll be fit for is dinner and a movie, guaranteed.
Are you a laid-back weekender or do you like to party it up when Friday night rolls around?
