I’m pretty sure at the end of every week I tell you that I’ve been so busy and that I’m exhausted or some familiar variation. Well guess what? This week is no different. I’ve just been go go go. You saw my photos of last weekend and my weeknights have been no better. Tuesday I visited a coworker’s wife and baby for a few hours so she could talk to an adult (and not go crazy) and have a bit of respite from childcare (and not go crazy), Wednesday S finally came back from Atlanta (gone a month and a half) so I spent the entire afternoon/evening with him, and last night I had drinks with my friend, Yalda for her birthday. But soon I will get to relax. Soon but not this weekend. This weekend I will be busy getting everything ready for the vacation I’m going on next weekend. Yes, that’s right, VACATION!
So what are you up to this weekend?
Unfortunately preparing for vacation means a long to do list of laundry, cleaning, errands, and even coming into work on the weekend (sigh). But I also have some fun plans sprinkled in there too. Dinner with Yalda tomorrow – let the birthday festivities continue! And brunch with my friend, Sean because we realized if we don’t hang out this week we won’t see each other again for a few months. Now it will just be like one month. -_-

Let’s Get Drinks Shouldn’t be that complicated, right? Wrong! Honestly before I lived in NYC I wouldn’t get this but somehow moving from suburban/rural is a time suck and you are always way more busy.
These Olive Oil Raspberry Sea Salt Brownies sound amazing but the weather is now too hot for me to turn my oven on so maybe in a few months I’ll be up for baking again.
