And I’m Set

So, just as I predicted, I spent yesterday virtually packing on Polyvore.  This is what I’ve come up with so far, except that white sweater with the zippers, I have it in a dark green, not white.

Long Weekend Away
Now, I just need to actually wash said articles of clothing and put them in a suitcase.
Yesterday was abs and shoulders day, and I hate that day because my shoulders are by far the weakest area of my body.  Phase two starts on Monday, get excited everyone!  Once I got home from work the majority of my evening was occupied by shoveling dinner in my face as fast as possible, some wine, and my favorite night of television; Vampire Diaries, Greys, and Private Practice.  I was also trying to decide if I need a new pair of riding boots in my life.  I still haven’t decided if I should pull the trigger and spend way too much money.  We’ll see what happens.
I really have no plans for the weekend, which as of lately isn’t shocking I know, but I don’t want to sit inside doing completely nothing.  Maybe I’ll figure something out, if not it will probably include a lot of Redbox again.  Oh well.  Happy Friday!


Thanks for all the compliments regarding my new blog header and my wedding outfit!  One of the best things about living with two other ladies, is your wardrobe doubles in size.  At any given time you can most likely find me wearing something belonging to either Danielle or Adrienne, and that wedding was no exception.  That dress is Dani’s, so a big thanks to her for letting me borrow it!

My weekend in PA was exhausting to say the least.  I felt like I barely sat down, and was constantly in my car.  After arriving home on Thursday night, after a 4 hour drive, I collapsed on the couch with a glass of wine and some pizza.  My sister and I hung out watching TV, drinking our wine, and relaxing.  Friday I was up relatively early, grabbed some coffee, went to the Hallmark store, and then was off to the hair salon to get my hair done.  I was dressed and ready to leave for my friend Michelle’s wedding by 3:45, and made it out the door and to the church with about 4 minutes to spare.

From church, to hotel, to reception, was pretty go, go, go, so by the time I arrived at cocktail hour at 7 I was more than ready for a drink and some food.  Luckily, Michelle is Italian and knows how to throw a party so I filled a plate up at the pasta station and camped out at a table with that and a glass of wine.  Butlered hors d’oeuvres are pretty nice too, then I only have to worry about going to the bar.

The wedding was awesome, and once dinner was finished I spent all evening on the dance floor.  When I woke up the next morning my feet were still swollen and walking was painful.  I suppose that’s what I get for keeping my 4.5 inch heels on all night in an effort to not look like a drunken mess.  I pulled myself together on Saturday morning, and left the hotel to go meet up with my mom for some shopping.  My sister’s birthday is next month and we were on a mission to buy her some things on her list.

Neither my mom nor I can avoid a good shoe sale, so when we noticed the one going on at Lord and Taylor we couldn’t help but stop.  I ended up with a fabulous pair of riding boots that fit the exact bill of what I was searching for this year, and way under what I was expecting to have to spend.

Aren’t they awesome?  They ended up being like 25% off, and I am itching for it to get cool again so I can wear them.  We also accomplished our main goal and purchased a present for my sister.  It’s currently in my possession so my mom wasn’t tempted to give it to her early.  Now I’m tempted to steal it.

I hustled home from shopping, pulled a quick outfit change, and hopped back in the car to head out to Conshohoken for a dinner date with my college roommate from Senior year and bff Jill.  She moved out of DC about one minute after I moved down last year, and the last time I saw her was her “goodbye” happy hour.  Not cool.  We had a delicious dinner at Pepperoncini before heading back to her new apartment to continue the evening.  Two bottles of wine, and one vodka and tonic later,  I realized I was not driving back to Yardley, and got comfortable for the night.  It was great getting to hang out with Jill and her boyfriend again.  We have plans to get together again when I’m home in December, and I can’t wait!

Sunday I hit the road back to VA around 2:30 and was home settled on my couch with food by 6 pm.  No traffic, just how I like it.  The weekend was exhausting, cost me a shitload in gas, wedding gifts, and dining out, but so worth it even if I did have to charge my groceries and gas yesterday, and even if I was so tired I very nearly filled my car up with diesel.  Thank god they make sure the pumps don’t fit in regular gas tanks, that’s all I have to say about that.

Happy Tuesday everyone, try not to hate it.

It’s Fall Y’all

Weeeeeeeee, it’s Friday and I’m wearing boots and a sweater.  All is right in the world :).

Yesterday went by relatively painlessly.  I made it through a lunch meeting without chowing down on the sandwich tray and plethora of chips provided, and got an appropriate amount of work done.  Of course, just as I was getting ready to shut down and head out to meet Steph for dinner, I got pulled into an “emergency”.  An hour later I was still sitting at my desk re-doing work I’d already done once, because people aren’t smart enough to use the most recent copy of a document when making edits.  Poor Steph was left to fend for herself at Dogfish Head downing beers while she waited for me.  I think she was ok with that though.

Once I finally got there, we quickly made our way to a table, ordered me a beer (Punkin ale draft obviously) and got to chatting.  Four and a half hours later, I decided that it was probably high time I head back to Virginia.  I’m sure we could have kept chatting for hours more, but it was a week night and I needed to be in my bed by 11 pm or I would have died today.

There are a crap ton of errands to run after work today to prepare for our “family day” tomorrow, and then of course food prep.  I’m hoping my family arrives early enough to treat me to dinner, but we’ll see what time they end up leaving PA, how monstrous traffic is, and what time they finally arrive.

Happy Friday! What are you all up to this weekend? Have a great one!
