The high of my week was my Galentine’s date with my friend Bri. I wasn’t really upset on Valentine’s Day (I was secretly calling it “Independence Day!” Ha.) But it was still nice to get out of the house and do something fun. And I’m glad we opted for a girl’s night in because I know it was craaaaazy at the restaurants and bars. It was the perfect night, and I am so thankful for my friendship with Bri. She knows how to make a girl feel good!
The low of my week was dealing with some blog domain issues. I think I have it all sorted out (well, fingers crossed!), but I can’t sign into Google Admin to make sure my payment method is set up correctly. Luckily, I was able to bypass Google Admin and find out what I used when renewing my blog domain in the past (good thing I did, because my payment methods were expired!), so I guess I’ll find out if all is well next Tuesday, when my domain is set to renew.
I’m currently reading Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. (I’m stealing Amber’s idea for replacing “favorite post I read” with what I’m reading. I like this option much more!) I’m about 60% of the way through it and it’s good, but very easy to put down. I do like Sedaris’ writing style, though!
A podcast episode I enjoyed was Schrodinger’s Mockingbird by Book Riot. The hosts of the Book Riot podcast devoted an entire episode to talking about the news of Harper Lee (author of one of my favorite novels To Kill a Mockingbird) releasing a new book. I really liked hearing the discussions between the hosts. (Though I don’t think I am as giddy about them about the new book. I look forward to reading it, but I don’t think it will be as major a event as they think, nor will I drop everything I’m doing the day it’s released to read it.)
The best money I spent was $5 for Taco Tuesday! Two gals at work decided to throw a fun “Taco Tuesday” party for everyone at work. All we had to do was contribute $5 for the ingredients, and the husband of one of the gals (who is a chef!) made a delicious spread for us. (Best part was having leftovers on Wednesday! Oh yeah!)
My plans this weekend include going to the zoo, working on a freelancing assignment, and decluttering my screened in patio. It should be a rather low-key weekend, but I am super excited to visit the zoo. I haven’t been since I was a kid and Saturday looks like it will be a gorgeous day (sunny! high of 72! sorry to brag!), so my mom and I will hopefully have a fun time exploring.
What was the highlight of your week? Any fun weekend plans?
