Bonjour, mes amies! TGIF, n'est ce pas? This week has dragged by for moi...
Last night i had one too many glasses of vin and biere (is this the French word for beer?) and may have spiraled into a mini depression/panicfest about my life. You know, the is this really what i'm doing with my life/i'm wasting my youth/will i ever be happy/i want to be fulfilled kind of crisis that all 20-somethings go through at least once. (i seem to go through it much more often than that...) Woke up this morning feeling pretty low, but my day has quickly improved. Had lunch with a dear colleague (one whom i decidedly could not work here without), caught up on some tweets/blogs, and am basking in the knowledge that today is finally FRIDAY!!
Even more exciting is that i have nothing scheduled for tonight. Absolutely NADA. This week has been filled with evening engagements (fun! but exhausting) and next week is even busier! So tonight i am happy to go home and do whatever the heck i want.
Well... actually i have a lot to do. The cleaning crew is coming over tomorrow to deep clean my apartment (with GREEN products), and i want to go through every cabinet/pantry/box/etc. before then. My fruit/dry fly situation is still under debate (maintenance did something yesterday that seemed to help, but i'm not convinced it's a permanent fix), so i'm also going through the apt in order to eliminate any other possibilities. Still i plan on making tonight as fun as possible - breaking open a bottle of bubbly, dancing to Britney Spears, playing visually stimulating movies like Marie Antoinette, noshing on healthy eats, and of course, spending quality time with my darling Lola.
Saturday night i've plans with a friend to (finally) watch Slumdog Millionaire. It's been sitting on my console for weeks! Our menu for the evening includes: fresh guacamole, tex-mex queso (aka velveeta + rotel, gross i know but it tastes goooood), white wine sangria with oodles of fresh citrus and berries, roasted veggies (b/c we need some sort of healthy item in here), and something tasty for dessert (haven't figured out what. any suggestions??).
Oh - i also hope to crack open Jen Lancaster's latest - Pretty In Plaid.
What're your fabulous plans for le weekend?
