2017. Can you believe it? We are already two week in! Are you keeping up with your resolutions? I didn’t really plan any except to not complain as much, and to respond to emails right away instead of browsing over it and marking unread. And I the only one that does that? #procrastinator
The holidays can be hard for a lot of people. You are reminded of people you have lost or of not so fond memories of years past. I sometimes get the feeling that holidays come with expectations.
I had an amazing weekend last weekend! I went to a Bucks game, epic seats by the way. With the new arena coming to Milwaukee, I have to start being a fan now 😉 I had a baptism on Sunday, visited a potential home purchase and had dinner with a good friend on Saturday night, including way too much wine. But I have another highlight, I was on TV. Yes, I know, I didn’t tell anyone!
You have to appreciate the honesty of your spouse on your fashion choices. I feel like most men are kind of like children; they tell you the brutal truth and do not hold back. My husband has always been one for honesty and is always looking out for what looks good on my body type. If he does not like a trend, he will not lie to me. He will let me wear what I want, but will always tell me if it looks bad or great. We have been together for almost 7 years and I’ve often had to justify why I am wearing a certain outfit or paired something a specific way, which usually ends with a roll eye and an ‘okay babe’.
Phew, Monday. Mondays are rough in general, but even worse when you just get back from an almost week long vacation to Mexico. We spend last week in Cancun with perfect weather and amazing company. My husband and I became friends with our neighbors a few years ago and swore we would all go on a trip together. Jamie works for a travel agency and shared an all inclusive resort deal that couldn’t be turned down.
This weekend I went shopping and my mind sparked while seeing a Dad and Daughter having coffee together. When I was little, my dad and I would go to Barnes & Noble (book store if you aren’t familiar) once a week. We could call it being ‘café people’ we would go to the café portion of the store and sit there for hours. My dad read or worked on his computer and I would look at fashion magazines. I would have a stack of about 15 magazines and flip through the pages, rarely read… I feel like things haven’t changed 🙂
One of the problems of working a ‘corporate’ job is heading out on the town after and not being able to transition your outfit. I mean who wants to go to happy hour wearing frumpy dress pants, a button up shirt and tote bag filled with business files? I am lucky enough that I work for an amazing family owned business who is totally into art and I can usually push the limits with what I wear to work, while still keeping it business causal and professional.
