Hey friends! Happy
Sunday Monday (I’m writing the beginning of this on Sunday morning #cheater). Let’s take a look back at the weekend, but stay until the end to see some of my ideas for this blog moving forward … I hope you’ll stick with me!
So, let’s head back to Friday. I walked to work, got myself a coffee from Dunkin (I’ve been saving so much money with my Keurig!) and then got into work to start my day. I had a shorter Friday due to a doctor appointment, so I got started with work. Unfortunately there were some issues with the platform (#startupprobs & #techworldprobs, amiright?) so I had to monitor social pretty closely all morning, so I spent some time in a room getting through that.
Also, remember that new client I told y’all about? I already had to end with her so that was over as of Friday. 🙁 I’ll give you the story in another blog (she’s an amazing woman, so nothing to do with our relationship!)
The rest of the day/afternoon was filled with work, listening to a podcast our Director of Education did and getting things all set for me to be out at the end of the day.
I left around 2:30 and walked to my doctor appointment to get my Mirena IUD replaced. Ben met me there because I was really nervous – when I had it put in 5 years ago, I almost passed out from the pain so he wanted to be there to take me home. <3 If anyone would like an in-depth conversation about the pros/cons of the Mirena and why I get it, let me know. Just know I literally screamed during the insertion (again) and had to be monitored for awhile afterwards. Low pain tolerance, y’all.
Ben and I grabbed an Uber home (I was extremely light headed and bleeding #tmi so I didn’t want to walk around like we had originally hoped to do) so we got home and I basically sat on the couch for the rest of the night. Benjamin was so sweet and ordered Thai food from our favorite place Opart Thai and then watched the last Harry Potter movie for the night, which basically means I cried like 900 times.
Saturday morning I got up early at 6:30 with Ben and Cora to hang out for a bit. Ben left for work and dropped me at the CVS on the way to his gym so I could pick up pantyliners (girls, I haven’t worn pads or pantyliners in like 6+ years because I rarely got a period on the Mirena + before that I used tampons) and then I decided it’d be fun to walk ALL the way to Marianos (a local grocery store) about a mile away, then walk home. So I walked 2+ miles. With cramping. #smart
I turned on HGYV and continued to watch that with Cora-boo until Ben got home. I also ordered myself some sushi from the restaurant Jieyi Sushi via UberEats. They had a $10 box deal – a big salad, three baby shrimp egg rolls, a spicy tuna roll and a diet coke. Such a great deal – granted I had to pay the $6 shipping/taxes from UberEats, but whatevs.
We hung out for a bit before I turned on Say Yes to the Dress (ha) and he did football stuff. We literally did NOTHING (well, Ben was working.) We ended up ordering from UberEats again – this time we got Devil Dogs which is AMAZING. I had a Chicago dog and a small Elvis slider (which has peanut butter AND sriracha on it and it’s amazing). Of course, I didn’t feel awesome afterwards, but it was amazing.
The rest of the evening we kept HGTV on, but then started unpacking a few more of my boxes + making a Goodwill pile.
Sunday morning we woke up at 6:45, played with/took Cora for a walk and then got ready to go to Sip Coffee to get some work done.
After a little bit of work, we packed up Cora and took her to the ‘burbs to play in a yard for awhile while Ben and I went shopping.
Ben needed a suit (the one he has is just way too big for him) so we headed to the Fashion Outlets and he bought the first one he tried on. 😂 #boys Of course, he still needed to shop around but we ended up coming back and getting the first one he got.
We were pretty rushed since he had a hockey game, so I wasn’t able to find anything besides two quick candles from Bath & Body Works, plus my body was pretty sore from walking around all day. We headed over to his hockey game (they won!)
After the game, we stopped to eat quickly at Portillos. Of course, I was craving pasta and we went to one of the locations that apparently doesn’t have pasta (boooo) so I got a burger, which was really, really good!
We headed over to Ben’s parents to hang out with his family for a bit + grab Cora, and then we headed back into the city. And that was my weekend!
So, my quick little “announcement” of sorts is that I’m going to be writing a bit more about social media, virtual assistance and all of that. It’ll still be from my perspective, obviously, but those things are such a huge part of my life so I figured I should be writing about it! If you have anything you’d like to hear about, let me know!
