Catching Up, 5 Things I Have to Tell You!

We’ve made it to the middle of the week! I’m proud of us! *slow clap*

1. Yesterday I worked for twelve hours. 

It’s a good thing my office is cosy because I sure seem to be spending a lot of extra time there lately. I left my house yesterday at 6am, got to the office at 7am, left the office at 7pm and got home at 8pm. #NotMyFavoriteDay

It probably goes without saying that I didn’t go running yesterday. I was mentally exhausted and starving since I had my lunch at noon.

2. When life hands you lemons… get Chipotle. 

Since I didn’t get back to Fort Lauderdale until after 8pm and Adam was at his MMA class I stopped at Chipotle for some fuel. Is it okay to call it fuel if I didn’t go running after? Well, whatever you want to call it, my chicken bowl was delicious!

I like to get my bowl with: no rice, black beans, chicken, lots of mild salsa, corn and some sour cream or guac. Mmmmm, perfection!

3. SURPRISE, you’ve got mail! 

When I finally got home it’s like God was looking down on me. Not only did I have a Chipotle bag in one hand, but a few of the packages I’ve been waiting for finally arrived!

In one package is this pet playpen that I bought Cecil. Now that we’re adding furniture to our outdoor patio area and plan to spend more time out there, we really want Cecil to be able to be out there too.

Cecil is not an indoor/outdoor cat and he never will be. I won’t allow any bugs to ever jump on my perfect little boy. When I adopted Cecil he was infested with bugs (fleas, ticks and ear mites). After the vet cleaned him up I vowed to never let another bug touch him. This playpen will allow us to bring Cecil out on the patio without me worrying about bugs easily getting to him:).

I also ordered myself this pretty little gold twisted ring from Mejuri a couple of weeks back and it finally arrived!

I love the way packages from Mejuri come — beautiful and personalized!

If you want to try something from Mejuri you can shop using this link and take $20 off your first purchase! My gold ring cost $69 so you would be able to get it for just $49. It’s so dainty and perfect for wearing alone or stacking. As soon as I paint my nails I will show you what it looks like on!

4. I can’t see you anymore…

Just a little joke to brighten up your day!

5. My coworker showed me this and said, “tell me this isn’t you and Adam!” 

Good to know that our anti-social vibes are coming through loud and clear! haha

What’s your favorite Chipotle order?
Do you keep any running memorabilia at your office?

    Long days like that are so exhausting! Your office looks nice though. I have a cubicle in a basement. So whenever Rob complains about being at his office i remind him that he has a window with sunlight! No one on our floor, even directors, have windows.

      Thank you! Wow that’s so crazy that you don’t get any natural light at all. I do think sunlight makes a huge difference. I’ve worked in an office before with no natural sunlight and it can feel so sterile!

    Number 5 is totally me and my fiance! We had four friends over on Saturday and on Sunday we barely mustered up the energy to grocery shop. I dont know how other people live their jam-packed lives.

    Is there an end in sight to your long days???

      I don’t know how either! I like seeing friends but my favorite moments are just being home with Adam and Cecil 😀

      There is an end in sight to my long days, but unfortunately that end is still about 7 weeks away. I am planning a vacation for next month which will hopefully help me refresh before the final push!

    That discount made me so happy, you have no idea!

    My favorite Chipotle order has: Lettuce, pinto beans, chicken, pico de gallo, cheese and juts a touch of sour creme. I also add Guac from time to time. It depends on how hungry I am.

      I’m glad you’re excited about the discount, Mejuri has fast become one of my favorite brands for jewelry. All of their stuff is so dainty and pretty!

      You are ruining your Chipotle order by adding lettuce! hahaha 😀

    I had a long day yesterday too…totally exhausting and now I’m already tired today at noon! I love Chipotle! My favorite is a veggie burrito bowl with brown rice, black beans, fajita veggies, mild salsa, lettuce, and guac. So yummy. Also that picture of Cecil is adorable. 🙂

    Love the outside pen for Cecil! What fun!! My cats do not go outside either, but when we lived in an apartment our cat loved to go out on the balcony and hang out. Now they just get to sniff the outdoors through the sliding screen door 🙂
    Dang, that’s a loooooong workday. Chipotle was well deserved!

      Oh yes! The apartment we lived at when we first got Cecil had a screened in balcony and he looooooved being out there. It was always so hard to get him to come in. We would have to give him treats because he would bite us if we tried to pick him up and bring him in! 😀

    Baby Cecil is so cute! I hope he has fun in the playpen. Honestly, my cats would claw their way through that! I have one of my marathon bibs on my “about me” bulletin/collage board behind my desk. 🙂 Tuesdays and Thursdays are my hell day. 🙁 Work and the 5 piano lessons or 6 piano lessons after. On Thursday night, halfway through my last lesson I lost my voice and got a pounding headache. It’s just really hard to pass up the money!

      Oh no 🙁 I’m sorry you had such a crappy day on Thursday. I hope you’re having a better week!

    I actually have a poster that I got from my first Miami half marathon hanging up on my office wall 🙂

    LMAO, that post at the end…that is exactly how Matt and I communicate about socializing. “Oh hey, we feel so popular! …But we’re not going, right?” 😉
