Another week is over and what a doozy! Work has been crazy and I have made more moves to talk to real estate groups in the area to make sure I’m marketable once I get my license- I’m really excited to take back charge over my career and the sky is the limit! We leave for NYC tonight to see friends and eat amazing food and partake in the great culture of the city- I just wish it wasn’t going to be so cold and slushy! I dropped off my precious pup with the sitter this morning and she just breaks my heart- she literally whines like a dolphin’s squeak when I start washing out her water and food bowl. I brought down her carrier and she laid in it all morning next to her stuff while I got ready- it was so sad 😦 I already can’t wait to be reunited with her on Monday! Now onto my favorites:
Guys, don’t knock boxed wine. Just because we had exposure to Franzia in college doesn’t mean that all boxed wine tastes like super sweet fruit juice. Bota Box is my personal favorite- there are many different varietals, they taste really good, and it’s only $16-18 a box which is the equivalent of FOUR BOTTLES! It’s less wasteful and you don’t have to pick up a bottle every week. It stays fresher longer as well so you don’t have to feel pressured to finish a bottle once you open it.
Old Navy Workout Leggings
Lululemon is amazing. Truly. But my ass just cannot afford their clothes anymore. So one day I was in Old Navy, and I saw they had a sale on Activewear bottoms. I bought two pairs. And, guys, lemme tell you- they are the BEST. Their prints remind me of Lululemon and they fit tight to your body so you don’t have to worry about sagging or looseness but they also suck everything in to give you a great silhouette. They have crop styles, ones with mesh panels, ones with cut-outs, ones with reflective tape, hi-rise styles, super-pretty patterns and colors- god, I want to go run out and snatch up 5 more just talking about them! And the best part- none are over $30.
A Made Bed
I’m the worst at making beds. I never remember and I’m not very good when I do. But thanks to my OCD BF, I get to see a hotel-worthy bed every day and climb into one every night. How good are his skills??
And a not so favorite-
St. Patrick’s Day.
TBH, I’m a little wary about going out tonight in NYC. St Patty’s Day just brings to mind images of rowdy guys drinking green beer and taking Jagerbombs. No thank you. Like most holidays, the reason for the season has been lost and I’m kind of over it. I’d rather hunker down in a wine bar away from the “March Madness” if you will.
