Gotta Get Down on Friday

TGIF. I feel like I've been working non-stop, and then trying to get everything purchased and prepped for Thankgiving has been a little bit like a nightmare. I'm travelling to Richmond this weekend for work, so lets all cross our fingers that Dave can keep the apartment clean while I'm gone.

These are probably the most random-ass things ever. Really. I keep a list in my phone of things that I want to talk about on Fridays.

Someone asked me the other day if I'm in the holiday spirit yet, and my answer is NO. BECAUSE MY 25th BIRTHDAY IS IN TWO WEEKS GUYS. WHERE DID THAT SNEAK UP ON US FROM? I'm not even sure what we're doing. If it were up to me (and it is) we would just go on a date to the movies (a Cinnebistro) and order dinner and dessert. And I'm pretty sure Dave is getting me a robe for my birthday.

Can anyone say 25 going on 86?

And my basic rule for holiday spirit is that it can start after my birthday (Dec. 4)

I've mentioned a couple of times that I've been working what feels like non-stop. I can't go into details (sorry to be vague--I always hate that!), but I have been using quotes like this to keep me motivated through what is becoming a tougher and tougher time for me at work.

*There were at least 3-4 paragraphs written and deleted here. Maybe this should be its own post? It is kind of sensitive, and I never want to write about work. So I need to think on it. 

This is kind of gross, but in cleaning our apartment, I found that we really need to wash our pillows. Does anyone have any tips for things like that? (FYI we don't have a washer/dryer so we have to do all laundry at a laundromat unless I can sneak it in to the work costume shop.

Has anyone ever checked out the website Budget Bytes? We have been finding tons of new, healthy recipes to try on there, including some Indian food, that I'm going to share with you next week! What I love about it is that the woman who creates the recipes doesn't just make them cheap, she makes them cheap and delicious. 

There are all different types of global cuisine, dietary preferences, and then you can browse by meal. This has been an amazing resource. 


I sent out some special packages in the mail on Tuesday, and the special ladies should be getting them today!!! I can't wait to talk about what is in them on WEDNESDAY!
