I did some major damage shopping this weekend. In my defense I submit two things: 1) I came in WAY under budget on vacation and 2) I’m starting a new job next week and need new fall clothes. That being said…
I got these…
Unfortunately, the second pair was too tight. One size up was WAY too big and they didn’t have a ½ size, but I was so in love with these shoes that I had to buy them and try to stretch them. This morning as I walked around the house in thick socks (which did work a little) I realized that there was pretty much no way I’d be walking through the airport in these bitches.
Because yes, I do believe in wearing skirts and heels in the airport, ok?
I went on the DSW website this morning and found a similar pair that just so happened to be $20 cheaper and there was one pair left in my size. I snatched them up with a quickness.
I also got some great jewelry and some cute clothes. All around I’m happy.
You mean you don’t have a candy buffet in your home for your guests? Hush now. Yes, there are also labeled cellophane bags and hot pink twist ties. What? People like candy. Fortunately I’m not even the slightest bit tempted by any of this.
On Friday I met The Bourgie Baker for lunch in Atlantic Station, where she offered me my first experience with food trucks. Was a tough decision, but in the end I had this:
I’ve never been a big pizza fan, but lately I really want it. This was *good*. And the pop – it was good, too, but I think people hyped the King of Pops up a little too much for me.
Seeing Bourg was very nice.
Only 3 more days at this office before I’m done. I could not be happier.
Today I was chatting with a woman in the office about my new job and she whispered to me “How old are you?” When I said I’ll be 35 this year she just about fell to the ground. “I thought you were around 28!” I love when people say this.
And last, but certainly not least – I’d kinda like to slap all the people who told me I needed to try risotto after I said that I don’t like rice. Umm…am I wrong or is risotto just semi-creamy, flavored rice? I totally expected it to be completely different from rice and it’s not. I wasted some calories on that crap.
