Some of the best weekends are the ones that are spent doing simply nothing. If I’m poolside with a good book, you know I won’t be complaining. Well, unless it’s 100+ degrees outside and the pool water is lukewarm, but that’s beside the point.
Melissa, one of my best friends whom I’ve known since before I was born, came over for a visit yesterday afternoon. We hadn’t had a chance to catch up in a while, so it was nice to have her company to discuss a random assortment of topics. Luckily, I wasn’t puking this time. Among our usual gossip sessions, we also discussed how we couldn’t believe that the years have truly flown by.
As cliché as it is, it seems like just yesterday we were playing nukem at the pool and eating chocolate-covered banana popsicles that cost a mere $.25. Somewhere along the way, we attended our senior prom and graduated high school together.
Now it seems like our freshman year of college at the same university was such a long time ago. Unfortunately, we had to end our reminiscing early as Melissa had to work, but it was still a nice Sunday afternoon!
Among the many topics that we covered, we also talked about our love for watches. She and I both are watchaholics, Though I tend to swoon over classic timepieces, I do have an appreciation for funky and unique ones as well. On Friday, I met the owner of 5 Wacky Women, an adorable boutique in the Cockeysville area. Whenever I need a one-of-a-kind gift, 5 Wacky Women is my first choice. I love that the majority of their products are functional, yet cute and girly.
After chatting for a bit, we discovered that her daughter was a former classmate of mine. Baltimore is a one-horse town! Aimee graciously gave me a crystal slap watch which I thought would make a great giveaway. Besides the obvious fact that it’s beyond fun to slap it around your wrist, the slap watch makes it easy to go from one outfit to the next.
One winner will receive a black, crystalized slap watch, courtesy of 5 Wacky Women.
