The Good, The Bad, & What's Coming

The Good

This week was one of those busy but not too stressful weeks, which can be kind of annoying because you still feel like you have no time to slow down and relax.  I did manage to get in some much needed shopping - holla VIB sale - which made things a little bit better.  I also may or may not have also taken full advantage of a sale at Loft and picked up a few new sweaters.  I have a weakness for pretty knit patterns.  I know I've been saying that you shouldn't use retail therapy as a crutch, but this week it was just a little necessary.  I'm pretty much swearing off shopping for myself through the end of the year though, with the holidays coming.

I also got some major sister time in this week.  She was so kind enough to help me get some things ready for a craft fair I'm doing this weekend.  And by that I mean she helped me cut out burlap flags for my banners, which will forever be the death of me.  We had Mexican food for dinner for three of these days which is a total win-win-win.  This delicious drink was consumed as well.  If you didn't know, Thursday was National Nacho Day.  I hope you celebrated!

The Bad

The rain.  And wind.  And cold.  And darkness.  I'm all for the extra hour we get when the time changes, but I soon regret it the next day when it's dark at 5:30.  Thank goodness I have an office with windows or I'd basically never see the sun during the day.  The forecast is looking up for the next few days though, so hopefully that will help turn things around for me.  I did manage to fight off the beginnings of a cold I felt coming on, so that's a small victory at least.

What's Coming

As I mentioned earlier, I'm doing a craft fair on Saturday!  I'm pretty excited for it, as it will be a first for me.  I've almost been selling on Etsy for a year now, which I can't even believe, so it will be fun to sell some of my little crafts at a fair like this.  My aunt who makes floral arrangements and other decorations is participating also so it should make for a very fun day!

Saturday also just so happens to be my birthday!  I've been told to be at a particular restaurant at 6:30 for dinner with some friends, so I am really looking forward to that.  You can't beat good food with great friends, birthday or not.  On Sunday, Chelcey and I have a special photo shoot idea we want to execute that I cannot wait to share.  And I'll be wrapping up the weekend with family time - our tradition of going to dinner and then having cake and presents at home.  I asked my mom to make a pound cake with cinnamon icing just like my grandmother used to make for my birthday when I was little.  My mouth is watering now just thinking about it.

I hope you had a great weekend, and a great weekend to come!
