Since deciding to (fully) embrace the single life, I've been
wearing my friends out using my free time to hang out with the ladies...and the fellas. For me, my friendships are one of the most important relationships to me (next to my relationship with God and my family). I'm not going to say not being in a relationship doesn't sometimes get lonely, but I've chosen to dwell on the people who are in my life and nurture those relationships and let the other pieces fall as they may.

For example, one day my sisters and I decided to get together and have a cupcake baking party (if you haven't been following Sprinkles Cupcakes on Twitter, you need to do so...like yesterday! They give away free cupcakes daily and sometimes they throw free cupcake mix in there!). We had a good time baking Sprinkles Chocolate Peppermint cupcakes and red velvet cupcakes! We talked, baked, decorated, and just really enjoyed each other's company. It was one of the best times that I've had just being at home.
But I don't just have fun with my girlfriends; I also have lots of fun with my guyfriends too. Since one of my best friend's is a guy that I went to high school with, a lot of the time when I randomly call to see what he's doing, he's hanging out with some other guys that we went to high school with or his coworkers. I then invite myself to whatever they are doing and I leave having a bunch of fun (because I can do that). You see...they don't sensor themselves just because I'm there and I LOVE IT!!! Just this past weekend I went by Marcus and Rudy's to hang out with them, Jose, Joeseph, Baley, Bryant and (even though I left for about 2 hours) ended up staying till about 2 am. It's just a really good time hanging out, talking, and listening to their point of view. And this isn't limited to just someone's house, I'm often the only girl when I'm hanging out with my Joe and his crew and I'm just as comfortable as if I was hanging out with the girls!
For me, it's very important to have these kinds of relationships. Even though some of them are in relationships and my life can get kind of hectic, we all seem to be able to make time for each other...to talk, to laugh, to live, and just to be around each other.
