Oh, how quickly the weather has changed since last week’s Weblog Wednesday! We went from Queen Elsa’s blizzard to barely-need-a-sweater weather. As much as I enjoyed the forced solitude of the blizzard, this past week I really enjoyed the fun activities that the nicer weather afforded.
From self-dates to Pinterest projects to pedicures, it was a superb week! On Thursday after work I popped into the salon for a pedicure while I wrapped up the last juicy pages of Mistborn. You can read my final review here.
On Friday morning my apartment complex management treated the residents to a delicious smorgasbord catered by Whole Foods. I grabbed a yummy bran muffin and watched a bit of morning news before heading to work.
Then on Friday night I took myself on a solo date to Barnes & Noble, where I picked up the second and third installments in Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy. I ordered a mocha and finished up this past weekend’s installment of my “Code Red” story.
This weekend was one of happy mediums. On Saturday, I ran 12 miles, napped and read all afternoon, and went out to a trivia MeetUp that evening. Sunday was my “get stuff done” day, and the productivity felt really good. I wrote during the morning, went craft supply shopping for the Toast of Tuesday DIY vase and candle holders, washed my car, bought groceries, did laundry and dishes, and cleaned my apartment.
I think strolling around the craft store was my favorite part of the day. Check out these gorgeous flowers they had!
I also bought a little gift for a daughter of one of my coworkers, who loves this thing called Shopkins.
On Sunday evening I wrapped up my totally imperfect Pinterest project and called it a night.
So far this work week has been pretty hectic, between leading meetings, enduring stuffy business luncheons, and trying to keep my eyes open amid unprecedented insomnia. Oh, not to mention juggling what feels like a zillion things on my moving to-do list. But I’ve been trying to turn my stress on its head and be grateful for the things that give me stress. I’m so fortunate to have such an awesome, challenging, rewarding job where I even get to lead meetings and go to stuffy business luncheons. And I’m especially so fortunate to be moving cross country soon to be with the person I can’t wait to grow old with. So yeah, I’ll take some stress 😉
Tell me, how was everyone else’s week? I hope everyone’s February is off to an awesome start!
