Hey there, happy Friday! Who’s pumped about the weekend? I feel like this week has taken forever. Maybe because I’ve just had a million things on my plate, but I could really use a nap.
I’m working alllll day today and will probably be there until 9 pm because of an event we’re having. The upside is I get free dinner! After I finish working tomorrow, I plan on getting outside and maybe going for a hike, taking Bella out, and just relaxing the rest of the weekend. Hope you guys have something fun planned!
So I was at work Wednesday morning and in one of my desk drawers, I came across this old gem of me and Riley from almost 9 years ago, which was our third dating anniversary.
I love the fact that Riley wore a shark tooth necklace to a fancy restaurant. I also distinctly remember thinking he was going to propose that night because he reached across the table to grab my hands and gave some mini speech about how amazing the last three years had been……and then he said, “I’m gonna run to the restroom” and that was that. I signed him up for some Zales mailing lists after that so all the diamond catalogs would just show up at the house. He proposed that Christmas.
Speaking of date nights, Riley and I went to Le Yaca for restaurant week on Wednesday. The meal was amazing, but I didn’t feel my best, so I was a little bummed about that. My stomach was hurting Wednesday night and we almost didn’t go out, but I wanted to power through anyway. Our dinner was a three course menu and, unfortunately, I only made it through about half of each course, but it was all delicious.
I started with a salad, then had their flounder, topped with crab meat, on top of lentils and veggies.
Then a trio of chocolate goodness for dessert.
I pretty much collapsed into bed when we got home! I think my stomach ache might have had something to do with my excessive peanut consumption earlier that day. I’d brought a tupperware container to work to get me through the week when I needed a snack.
Well, I ate the whole thing in one day. I’m pretty sure it was like 4x what a normal serving is supposed to be. I am addicted to roasted salted peanuts, you guys. Some people eat dessert after dinner? I eat peanuts.
I bought a few different things online that I wanted to share with you guys! First, I ordered this tea box from Amazon to help organize all my teas.
Me trying to get tea out of my pantry lately has looked more like this:
It’s such a small thing to get excited over, but not having a million boxes of tea to dig through is so nice!
I also received my new leggings from Fabletics. They were 2 for $24 so I couldn’t say no.
So far I’ve only worn one of the pairs, the salar mesh powerhold capris, but I looooove them.
They hold everything in without feeling tight and they go with everything. I also got these:
Both pairs have a pocket for your key, which is a huge plus!
The only other exciting thing from this week is that we booked our place in Barcelona, so now we have somewhere to stay! It’s our first time using an Airbnb, so I’m hopeful everything goes well. It’s super cute and I love that we’ll have a kitchen and balcony.
That’s all I got for today, kids. Have a great weekend and I’ll catch you on Monday!
What’s been a highlight of your week?
Have you ever stayed in an Airbnb?
