Hope you are having an absolutely fabulous start to your weekend!
Things have gone well this week and I’m excited to make it through to next Thursday AKA- start of spring break 2010! A master plan is slowly being hatched with friends near and far. I hope something spectacular unfolds.
The start of every single Friday morning I am greeted by a “Happy Friday!” text from my Dad. I don’t know exactly when this little tradition began, but it sure is cool. This month also marks his 20th year working for the same company (Go Pops go!) A celebratory dinner is in store next time I see that man. He is such a hard worker. Both of my parents are. It makes me wonder how they had such a procrastinating savvy daughter… 😉
Moving on! How about a Friday recap? Around four today (after reading, studying, eating, cleaning, and a little bit of exercise) I decided to take a little nap. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve taken a nap since starting here at school. It just doesn’t happen. Like I said, I fell asleep around four p.m. and didn’t wake up until 8:30. Big whoops on my part. I was supposed to meet a buddy on campus for some crazy spring bash shenanigans taking place. I rubbed my eyes, looked at the time, and quickly called him to apologize. Turns out he was able to able to cope on his on. Bless you alcohol college.
After enjoying some peanut butter (guilty pleasure) I gave into some internet shopping (guilty pleasure squared). Before you judge understand this is not something I frequently do. The last time I shopped for something other than groceries and cleaning supplies was in December. I’ve recently seen some other bloggers posting pictures of really cute lunch duffles from Target. I immediately knew this was something I had to get my Mom for Mother’s Day. This lady doesn’t take a second to breathe, I swear. For weeks she would pack just a can of soup for lunch, pop the lid, and sip while walking down the hall before attending to her patients (medical field work obviously f.y.i). Many days she runs on empty until finally crashing and having a quick meal late at night (this is the way I would operate for several years. It is so easy for the two of us to fall into this pattern, I kid you not).
So, I would like to introduce you to our trendy new lunch totes. I bought two (a steal at $11 a piece) and will be on her case about properly packing lunches for work.

I’m so excited to go home and visit this summer! I can guarantee we’ll be the mother daughter duo strolling the beach with Jenny and our matching lunch totes. Yes, I love mama Jean that much! The green bag she’s carrying is plastic and for her shell collection. How sweet.
I also revisited Urban Outfitter’s website to check on a top I’ve had my eye on since the fall. It is a cute little blue lacy number (orig $42) that I scooped up for $15. Love it!
They have a great sale going on if you want to check it out! Well, I guess that’s all for now. I promise to actually include more food in upcoming posts. Thanks for reading! xoxo
What do you like to splurge on? (obviously I love Target and cute clothing deals)
What is the longest amount of time you’ve ever worked for a company? (Build A Bear Workshop for a good portion of a year. What a crazy time…in the name of fluff.)
