Two Meatballs: The Surprises Keep on Coming…and a Sexual Ballet!

It is so nice to get out and celebrate other people and be with friends when your personal life feels a little shitty…everyone needs a distraction am I right ladies!?  Time for the meatballs to hit the town!!!  So what better to do than surprise your loved ones on their birthdays!!!  We had two milestone birthdays at the salon this week.  First up…Michael Knight!!!  This guy shockingly turned 50 this week!  No one is younger or more bad ass than this guy! We love you Michael!!! PS…standing with Michael, cigar in hand is one of our bosses, Jack, who also turned 50 this year. You guys are making 50 look amazing. #50isthenew40


Our bosses lured him out to dinner at Gravy…


While we waited excitedly a few doors down at Landmark!!!


Then it was time to take our places and get ready to surprise the birthday boy!


And what a surprise it was…


Nothing like turning a corner and being bombarded with songs and soooo much birthday love!  Time to celebrate!


What a fun night!!!  Happy happy birthday Michael!!!!!  We love you so much.  Then while Jenny was at work Saturday I was invited to the ballet with my sister and her friends Sarah and Ashley whom I adore!  We met at Buku for lunch…


#alwaystimetojackassaround #thatcouchwascallingmyname

The company and conversation was amazing…the food left a lot to be desired!!!  I have been here several times but this time was wah wah for sure!!!  But that didn’t stop the fun. #imlightneningonmyfeet #lifechangingdessert #toomuchcoffee #ablacktoilet!!! #polishthighs  #aruba!?

Then it was on to The Fletcher Center for The Masque of the Red Death and Dracula the ballet!!!  You guyyyyys….Dracula was the most sexual thing I have ever seen on the stage!  The only other ballet I’ve seen is The Nutcracker so I had nooooo idea it could be this steamy…literally it was so hot in there but my goodness…the vampire sirens…the drinking of the blood.  It was super fucking hot so do yourself a sexy favor and go see this for sure.  It was also beautiful.  My sister and I  are big dance fans even though neither one of us ever took a class…we are just experts from So You Think You Can Dance!!! It’s so gorgeous to watch and I love the symphony and watching it all happen.  I also realized that I am not  grown up or sophisticated enough for a ballet crowd and I can’t stop talking or making inappropriate noises when a ballerina bends over and grabs her ankles…hey oh…am I right ladies?!  What a fun afternoon with people I love!!! Can’t wait to do it again! #lovemydid



Then Jenny got off work and we got dolled up to go to our sweet bunny Lauren’s surprise 30th birthday party!!!  Her sweet and adorable boyfriend Cameron surprised her at Tobacco Rd.  We were late because I couldn’t get my shit together! haha so we missed the surprise aspect but not the celebration!  Lauren is such a big supporter of the blog that we had some meatball sightings which always makes us feel like one million dollars!!!  Lauren is someone everyone should have the pleasure of knowing….no more positive, joyful person exists on this earth.  She is the living funnest.


Sooooo fun to see everyone from work outside of work so many times in one weekend!!!!  Happy birthday y’all and can’t wait to do it again!!!!!



Two Meatballs: So You Think Meatballs Can Dance, Dance , Dance…

Sooooooo…we have another big weigh in coming up…it’s 12 days until we hit the scales and Jenny and I both are STUCCCCKKK!  We both understand that this is part of the progress but some times you just need to talk it out…


And who better to talk it through with than your meatball!?  Turns out we were both worried about the SAME thing (shocker)…what if we don’t lose any weight before the 1st!?


We would probably be supes dupes sad…


Then really angry that all of our hard work wasn’t paying off…



So we talked it through and realized that not losing any weight would make for an extremely relatable post…everyone hits a wall on their path to wellness…


We just have to stay positive and know that we have each other!!!  We know that you’ve heard this from us before but we just have to keep reminding ourselves that there are hiccups on this little baby.  So what should we do to get ourselves re-motivated and celebrate the great progress that we have already made?!?!


Date night with out super best buddies…Kelly and Krista!!!


And what shall we do!?  Well since Jenny and I have the most supportive group of people surrounding us we are going to my sister’s house for a paleo app night and watching the greatest show of all time….So You Think You Can Dance or SYTYCD as it goes with the Beard girls. This are our ballet poses…we used them to get pumped up for the night ahead!
