It's not diet related, but more of a "social concern"
I’m looking for some feedback here. I have an acquaintance at work who has passed out “save the date” notices to certain females in our age range. I just found out that she had checked with a couple of them ahead of time to see what their availability is (and chatting about the idea) and decided on a date from there. Since her and her husband decided to celebrate the actual March birthday in Hawaii, she’s having a “tea party” in April. It’s a two hour afternoon thing at the local Fairmont hotel.
I know I don’t have to decide right now, but I’m stressing out about it. I see far more reasons not to go: It’s a very expensive afternoon ($50 min plus Gift); I have no interest in tea parties (I'm so far from being a "girly" person), that day is my own husbands birthday, I’m only work-friends with the person. Matter of fact, I'm much more comfortable in jeans/sweats than "business casual" attire.
My reasons for going are that she is a nice person, there will be a common friend there and it's the polite thing to do.
I'd love to hear some input/perspective from others.... please....
