Happy Friday! Even though it was a short work week thanks to Monday's holiday, I'm still quite ready for the weekend! I've been out of the city the past two weekends so I'm looking forward to spending some time close to home but before we get into that, here are five things I'm loving this week!
Martin Luther King Day
Not only did Monday provide tons of inspiration courtesy of the many Dr. King quotes all over social media, but it also provided a much-needed day off from work, which was quite welcome! My day off was a mix of work, play, and tacking some errands that I've been pushing off for a long time. For example...
...I finally upgraded my phone to the iPhone 6! I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that not only was I still using an old iPhone 4S that had no battery life and couldn't get app updates, but I've been eligible for a phone upgrade for over a year and hadn't taken the plunge yet. After some gentle prodding (and a slight
temper tantrum bit of concern on my part), T and I made our way to the Apple store and I walked out with a beautiful new gold iPhone 6! I had originally thought I might get the 6 Plus but that dream was squashed when I tried to hold it in one hand and text and realized my thumb could physically not reach the A key - haha! I've only had it for a few days but I'm already completely in love and not sure how I lasted without it for so long!
In addition to being a fabulous TSN guest poster, my bestie J is also an outrageously talented songwriter! He was performing some songs off of his new album, so T and I made our way downtown to the concert venue and spent an awesome night rocking out to J's catchy tunes. Of course, we also had to make an appearance at the afterparty, which led to a pretty eventful Monday night out on the town!
My candy obsession
Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote about my obsession with Brach's conversation hearts and my annual hunt for my seasonal sugar crush. This year, the hunt for this elusive treat was over before it started when T surprised me with a jumbo bag of the hearts, plus a small bag of red-only conversation hearts (which I had never seen before!). I've pretty much been inhaling them after dinner every night this week...which reminds me, I should probably make a dental appointment.
Gals Birthday Brunch
One of the reasons I'm super excited for this weekend is that M is coming to town with GG and Little M! We're having a group brunch on Saturday which will also serve as an early birthday celebration for M. I'm super psyched to hang with my bestie and co-blogger, so keep an eye on our Instagram on Saturday to keep up with our adventures!
I hope you all have super fun weekends - what are your plans?
