90 Minute IPA

I may have mentioned this before, but I work around the corner from a Dogfish Head Alehouse.  After I declared my love for their Punkin Ale in the fall (and shelled out $50 for a case of it, which I’m still clinging to one or two bottles of) I knew I needed to stop in there for a drink.  Even if I had to go by myself.  Luckily for me, the happy hour my work organized last night just happened to be there, so I didn’t have to go alone after all!  I walked in, looked at the chalkboard of draft beers, and immediately decided to go with the 90 Minute IPA.  I’d read enough about it on Marie’s blog to know it was delicious, and worth the extra $1 for the 9% ABV.  It was delicious, and I had two, and then I was drunk and still needed to drive home from Maryland.  Oops.  Luckily I got to sit in traffic for an hour and sober up.

I didn’t end up making it to the second happy hour because the roommates left earlier than I thought they would.  Instead I went home, opened a bottle of wine, and relaxed on the couch with one of them watching the Capitals game.  In other exciting news, we’re currently under a “Winter Weather Advisory” and are supposed to get a few inches of snow today.  Should make the evening commute tons of fun if I don’t get to leave early.

I did not make it to the gym this morning, my beer + wine headache was begging for an extra hour of sleep.  I do however have a bag of gym clothes in my car, so depending on the weather tonight we’ll see if I can make it after work.  Chances are though if it is snowing, I’m going right home.

While out shopping last weekend, Adrienne and I happened to wander into the Nordstrom’s shoe department where I stumbled upon my latest obsession.  I’m completely in love with these Tory Burch leopard flats, and can’t stop thinking about them.

I must have picked them up three times to try on, but every time put them down because they’re a tad out of my price rang.  Here I am though, almost one week later still thinking about them.  Sigh.  Adrienne convinced me to at least wait until after Christmas, so I exercised some will power and walked away.  If they happen to show up in my closet in a few weeks, don’t be surprised though.

After last week seemed to fly by, this one is dragging.  Thankfully it is Thursday, and my sister is coming into town tomorrow to visit for the weekend!  So excited!  Now keep your fingers crossed that I can leave early today and “work from home” all afternoon ;).
