Weekly Recap & Ramble

Happy Friday lovelies! 

I took a a few days off from the blog this week. A lot was going on and I just really had nothing fun to ramble about. I also had a small case of writer's block, which I'm sure a lot of us experience from time to time. In my case, it starts to stress me out and I decided to just take a break and focus on other things this week. 

My week looked something like this:

#1: Moved into a brand new office building on Wednesday which is gorgeous. I'm not super happy that I had to downsize from an office to a cubicle but the space is modern and comfortable so I'll get accustomed to it.

#2: Started brainstorming for my new blog design. Woop woop! 

#3: Snuggled with Lola and watched TV in the evenings...while she snored. 

Here's proof:

#4: Got a mani and painted my nails this pretty pink OPI color (of course I can't remember the name now).

#5: Stuck with our healthy meal plan for dinners this week:
 ~ Chicken & shrimp kabobs
~ Baked salmon with broccoli
~ Skinny turkey fajitas
~ Chicken tossed salad

Felt like this at other times. #pms

#6: Enjoyed some red wine & blogging to top off my Thursday night.

#7: The most exciting of all is that we booked our trip to Vegas for 4th of July weekend!! I'm so stoked about this! I went for the first time last year January for a work convention and have been itching to go back. This time it won't be for work and we can do a whole lot more of the shows and fun stuff.

Any recommendations for shows while I plan our trip to Vegas?

Enjoy the weekend ladies!


  1. Yay for your trip being booked! Having a trip to look forward to is always awesome! Your new work space looks super chic--sucks about the cubicle tho, but I'm sure you'll get used to it!
    Have a great weekend girl! Can't wait to see on Monday where you guys went out to tonight! ;)

  2. Your new office looks super swanky! Congrats on getting your trip booked - where in Vegas are you staying? It's always fantastic to have a future trip on the calendar!

  3. I think the color is Mod about you - love it!! Love your new office and can't wait to see what you decide for your new blog design!!! Vegas is going to be amazing - can't wait for the recap on that one!! Hope you have a great weekend!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  4. Your mani is gorge and that new work space looks pretty cool! Happy weekend! xoxo

  5. I love the new office space, but bummer about a cubicle rather than an office. That mani color is gorgeous! Woohoo Vegas, I'm going in May again and I cannot wait!!!

  6. I love your new office space! Your mani color is so pretty & a HUGE yay for going back to Vegas. Let me know if you need any fun restaurant suggestions. :)

  7. The new office space is beautiful! I'll have to walk over and check it out soon :)

    Yay for Vegas! Is that for E-Squared's 30th?

  8. I hate that I sometimes feel (ok, not skinny but smaller) and other times I don't, just blah! Exciting news about Vegas!! I've never been... but I've obviously heard amazing things. I want to go in the couple of years. Hoping one of my friends has a bachelorette there ;)

  9. Oooh love that OPI color!! Makes you look super tan (even though you live in FL and probably actually ARE that tan haha). That office space, even having to downsize does look great! Happy Friday!

  10. I love your new office! How cool! Lola is the cutest! I love when you include pics of her! Have so much fun in Vegas! Have you seen Love? That was amazing!

  11. I love that pink!

    Our office is mostly open concept and modern too. With orange walls!

    WOO vacation booking. That always makes me really jazzed.

  12. ahhh Vegas! so exciting!! I love Vegas with all the love. And sorry that you had to downsize from an office to a cubicle, but your cubicle is super cute! I have never had an office, womp womp. I kinda dig the modern kitchen. And your meals look amazing!

  13. Your new office space looks so nice-- even the cubicle! All those meals look so good and healthy- especially the kabobs! I've never been to Vegas so I have no help there, but going for the 4th of July sounds like it would be so much fun!

  14. Sometimes you just have to take a break! Cube life blows but you will get used to it. At least it's modern.

  15. My company is about to move to an office and they are doing the same thing, unless you're a VP your office is getting taken away and you're going into a cube. I guess this is a new trend? Enjoy vegas on fourth of July. That'll be crazy!

  16. oh lola - she's so darn cute :) and good work on the meal planning! and #1 - can't wait to see that ;) happy weekend chica! xo


  17. You had me at that first quote -- such a beautiful reminder and so timely in my life right now :) So glad to read it today!!

  18. The new office building is lovely and yum for all that food.

    That quote ... I had to save it because I clearly need to remember that!

  19. I wouldn't be thrilled about the cubicle either, but the office building is cute! And Lola is adorable as always!!!

    Can we start a #bustedcanofbiscuits hashtag?!haha I concur with that meme.
