Around HereMonday, May 21, 2012
What a lovely weekend. The weather was in the 80s and I was able to enjoy a little time outside. Wearing dresses and flip flops was an everyday thing in LA so when I always feel like myself when it's warm enough to break out my dresses.
Saturday: Lunch at Bistrot Margot and drinks at Benchmark with Shari. I went to a little get together with my friend Brandon that night and then met up with a few friends afterward. Sunday: lunch at Prasino (so. good.) with my friend Kirby (one of the first friends I made in Chicago). I did work both days but managed to have some fun, too. Look at me developing a little work life balance! I'm getting there.
A few other things I'm loving:
I had a rough morning Friday but managed to turn my entire day around after a talk with my friend Jess. I have made such good friends in this city and hope that I am as good a friend to them as they are to me.
This finance feature on The Everygirl. I am turning 30 and need to start investing. I plan on taking Brittney's advice and investing $50 per month.
And finally -- I am excited that my mom will be coming to Chicago in a few weeks to help with a very big project. I will share the news later this week.
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday.
