Birthday Pics and Weekend Plans

Since moving to San Diego a year and a half ago, I have done a poor job of venturing out. If it wasn't for my GPS system, I would probably not make it to work. None-the-less, there is so much to see and do. As a newly single woman, I am attempting to branch out. I have been 33 for a full week now. What have I done to break out of my shell? San Diego Meet Up. I joined last year and have gone to a few groups here and there, including a Girls Night Out group and a Knitting group. Still, I haven't maximized this opportunity to meet new locals. I can't depend on the friends of my former man forever right??!!!

Well I had a great birthday weekend with food, friends, and drinks...not necessarily in that order! lol. Here's some pics:

Why do I look so happy and radiant? Look at that sushi spread and you tell me!

Back to my ramblings....this Wednesday - after an impromptu hair cut, I went to happy hour with one of the meet-up groups and met a few new friends. Tonight I'm going to Top of the Hyatt for a Black Professionals meet-up, tomorrow evening dinner at Crudo for Sushi meet-up, and Sunday a White Elephant Purse Party for a Girls Only meet-up. Phew - that's more action than I've seen in 6 months! Plus - Gail and I are trying to coordinate a little knitting get together as well.

Here's me with my new do:

Hopefully a more active Susan will continue on in the upcoming New Year...we'll see!

I think Blogger ate my hope you don't get this twice.

Sounds like you are on the right track to getting back into circulation! And gotta love the sushi - especially if it makes you look that happy and pretty!

Have a fun weekend!

Cute hair cut!

Gail said...

you sound like you're having a blast. You look great and ready to take the world on. I'll give you a call about meeting up for knitting. Next Saturday will be better for me. I have sooo much cleaning and cooking to do before people come over. I can't believe matt invited people w/o telling me. Ugh... he owes me.

OOh I so need to follow your lead on being more active!

I hate White Elephant exchanges, BUT the purse element brings a different twist! Fun!

Exciting about starting up your own knit group! Good luck with that!

And I am liking your new look! As I told you on Ravelry you are looking fabulous girl!!

Keep living well!!

Happy Belated Birthday!
