I’ve been waiting for this particular Friday for a while now. It’s my last Friday in the office before going on maternity leave for the entire summer. I’ve been so checked out all week anyway, but it will be nice to have it “official.”
Being too uncomfortable to do much of anything at this point guarantees it will be a low-key weekend. That is, unless someone decides to make an early appearance… fingers crossed. And with that, happy Friday!
I regret letting The Office get out of my TV-watching rotation the last year or so. I’m not sure how or why it did. But last night’s retrospective was a nice little trip down memory lane. I’m not ashamed to admit maybe getting a little misty-eyed at parts. These memories will not cause that, though.
The first time I flew on a plane was the late 80s, long after the glory days of “stewardesses” and smoking in-flight. It’s come a long way, though, since the 13-stop, 20-hour flight from Oakland to Chicago.
Spring has finally arrived in Chicago, which means summer festival season is right around the corner. I’m really bummed to miss Maifest this year, which is always one of my faves. Brats, beer and oom-pah music? Yes, please.
For me, spring not only signals the nearing of summer festival season, but it’s also my queue to swap Lincoln Park After Dark for something light and pretty, like Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos or OPI’s Don’t Pretzel My Buttons.
It seems like there’s never a shortage of travel gadgets that you supposedly need, but this is a new one — RFID-blocking credit card and passport sleeves? I’d never even heard of these, but, having had our credit cards compromised multiple times (it’s really convenient when it happens in the midst of buying a home, by the way), I wonder if they’re worth it.
One of my friends pinned these adorable Scrabble cookies. The game is a favorite past-time of my husband’s and mine, and the cookies are lemon (one of my husband’s favorites). So adorable. I need to make these… someday…
