Holy Smokes, It's Friday

Did this week just fly by for anyone else?  Holy smokes.  I'm super happy it's Friday so I can dial back the requirements of my brain for two days.  It feels like mush today - I felt like a warning was necessary.  Here are five things I'm extremely excited about today.

1.  Coffee is a weird thing for me.  I love it.  It's one of my favorite parts of the morning.  I started drinking it to see what all the fuss was about in college.  I only have 1 cup a day (2 on Saturdays while I read).  Since we moved in, there has been a spot across the street that has been under construction and they are putting in a Dunkin Donuts.  I have a feeling that it will be open any day and I'm getting ridiculously excited.  My bathroom scale & my wallet are not, but who made them boss?

2.  We officially booked our first weekend adventure since moving here.  We have been enjoying NYC and the areas right around it, but in a few weeks, we are heading north to Smuggler's Notch in Vermont for a ski/snowboard weekend with one of my best friends.  I'm so excited to see her and spend some time in a brand new place.  Now I just need to cross my fingers that my body still remembers how to ski.

3.  The dogs are getting pampered tomorrow and getting their hair done, nails clipped and a good scrubbing.  I know that seems like a silly thing to many of you, but we are missing our favorite dog people back home and searching for someone out here with good reviews that we can use to board the dogs and groom the dogs has been stressful.  This place has great ratings and it's close for us, so we are super excited to check it out and see if the pups like it.  Have you read what happened to my friend, Sarah, yet?  It will make you think twice about where you're sending your pups.

4.  This weekend is a cleaning weekend.  Remember my 4 words of 2014?  I'm going to be decluttering my not too cluttered apartment because it's better to be ahead of the problem.  I'm also going to clean up my internet life this weekend.  I'll include some tips on this once I've finished my project, but I'm super excited.

5.  I scheduled my first stitch fix.  I've seen it posted a million times on different blogs and heard so many good things, but didn't think it was for me.  And then, I was standing in my closet yesterday trying to find something to wear and I realized that everything I own for cold weather is the SAME.  Same colors, same styles.  It's time to branch out.  Now I have to wait a month, but it will be worth it, right?

And for my Friday jam, the first song that came to mind was this one... probably because they are one of my favorites and the lead singer was featured in my airplane magazine last week.


  1. I'm working on cleaning up my online stuff. It's a lot to slog through!

    Our dogs get bathed at home, nail clipping at the vet if we can't do it at home. MFD always wants to do it at home, I always want the vet to do it! I hope the place you go to this weekend is great!

    HURRAH for Dunkin Donuts. Yes yes yes yes.

  2. so don't laugh at me but.. what's a stitch fix? I got all super excited for you that you scheduled one and then realized that I didn't know what it was.

    anywho, have a fun weekend!

  3. It is SO hard to find someone good to take care of your pets. I lucked out MAJORLY with my groomer AND my boarder. Groomer was by word of mouth and the boarder was a combo of that and MAJOR research!

  4. I looked into stitch fix but I didn't know if it was for me. It seems like a neat idea but I can just imagine me forgetting to return things I don't and getting chrged buttloads of money

  5. I don't know what stitch fix is...help a gal out please.

    Your getaway sounds wonderful. I hope the furbabies enjoy their spa day.

    Have a super weekend!

  6. I am such a coffee slut! I need a lot more than one cup a day! Dunkin Donuts across the street would be dangerous!

  7. I REALLY need to do something about cleaning up my "online life." I'm wading through 100 e-mails of just pure junk right now. Why am I signed up for all this stuff?!

  8. I like getting my puppy pampered too. No shame man! This weekend has been a cleaning weekend here too.

  9. I feel the same about coffee. I try to limit myself to one cup in the morning and one in the afternoon for a pick me up, but if there were a DD that close to me, I would likely be broke!!
