not to harp on it or anything, but work has been kicking my butt lately. i was there until 6:00pm on FRIDAY for gosh sakes! who stays at the office that late on a friday?? but i have an 8:00am meeting monday morning, and for everyone’s sake, i needed to iron out some stuff. and i’d rather stay late than do work on the weekend. amen.
all that to say, i did not have the time or energy to write this post for friday. my priority lies with my husband and family and friends, so that’s what i spent my time on this weekend. but now it’s sunday, which means watching football, and working on the house, and eating giant waffles for brunch.
hope your weekends were full of goodness! what are you guys up to these days? link up below with your wrap-up posts if you want!
these days i’m…
eating avocado toast. because i am a boss. and avocados were ridiculously cheap at the grocery store the other day, i’m talking like 68 cents cheap! so obviously i got as many as they would allow me to (which was only 4, those jerks!), and i’ve been doing work on them this week. i try as best i can to share with the husband, but i’m only human.
planning a way to trick Mister Man into taking me on a weekend trip this fall. preferably up to northern minnesota to watch the fall colors change. he travels so often that spending a weekend away from home doesn’t always sound appealing to him, so we’ll see if this works. any tips for me?
watching season 4 of the league!! i’ve talked before about the reasons why Mister Man and i work so well together. well, our taste in crappy, vulgar comedy shows is one of them. and it’s finally on netflix. what WHAT!?
praying for peace. in syria and everywhere in the world that needs it.
wearing my new stitchfix dress. i would live in this thing if i could! have you guys tried stitchfix yet? they don’t sponsor me, i just love ’em! (although oddly enough, i just found out that the company was started by one of my cousin’s friends from her MBA program…the world is very small people!)
drinking herbal tea. because you guys, i’m trying to cut back on my caffeine intake. it was a terrible time to start this goal, but when is there ever a good time to give up your favorite beverages? coffee is my life force and i enjoy an ice cold diet coke every once in a while. this is going to deserve a post in and of itself i think.
loving this quote from Thursday’s post about why i choose to look at things through a positive lense. i basically have it memorized at this point, and frankly i’m surprised i haven’t taken to whispering it to myself like a crazy person, rocking back and forth at my desk. i’m teetering on the edge people, seriously, look at the side of my cubicle:
not loving that the Mister’s travel season is starting in full force again this week. although, if i look on the bright side, it means more popcorn dinners and netflix nights for me!
