A partially completed to-do list and other weekend shenanigans

I'm sitting at work not working.

I actually got off 45 minutes ago. Then a coworker and I walked for coffee (trying out Starbucks new Chocolate Chai -- so far, thumbs up!).

Next I have somewhere to be in just over an hour so it didn't seem worth it to head home for just a little bit.

Perfect time to blog, right?

This weekend was pretty wonderful. First of all, I had two days off in a row (it had been a while). Secondly, I didn't have anything planned on Saturday. This never happens.

So I made myself a few lists of things to do, errands to run, groceries to buy, and got to work.

I wasn't nearly as productive as I had hoped, but by the end of the day I had crossed off more than half my list. I also successfully saved a decent amount on my groceries (Safeways' Just For U for the win) even if I did spend more than I had planned.

Spoiler alert: that's pretty much every grocery shopping trip I make.

Sunday was for a football (an awesome Seahawks comback on the road) and a college roommate's wedding. Even though I hadn't seen her for a few years, it was great to celebrate with her.

Monday morning was an early one at work (hello, 5:30 a.m.) so I feel like I've been recovering from that all week.

Tonight I have fun plans with my coworkers (drinks! dinner!) and then it'll be Thursday -- my favorite day of the week.

On a completely unrelated note, I appreciate all the cooking for one suggestions. I've started stocking my freezer with leftovers for later. Currently, there's pasta, soup, and enchiladas.

Some week soon I'm not going to cook at all. But I may need to buy some more Tupperware.

Obviously life has been pretty epic, hence the desperate need to blog. What's been going on for you?


  1. I've been putting on my big girl pants: renewing my tabs, and getting my own car insurance.

  2. I really need to get my moving stuff sorted out. The mess is annoying me....

  3. i wish i could blog from work! it would save me so much time! i'm currently glad the week has flown by. just 2 more days until the weekend!

  4. Haha, I'm blogging from work right now (shh!). Starbucks has chocolate Chai?! I gotta check it out! I definitely need to invest in some more tupperware- cooking and freezing meals in advance is sounding like a great idea!

  5. I totally feel you on LOVING 2 days off in a row. That rarely happens for me so when it does it's pretty exciting!

  6. Dang I kind of want your life right now. I would love a weekend at home to just run errands and get organized. I love chai lattes so I might have to try the chocolate one. I've been busy busy busy as usual but I'm hoping things will slow down some now. Hoping for another Hawks road win this weekend!

  8. Cooking for one always turns into me eating cookies / crackers / cheese over the sink - you are a much better woman than I am
