The beginning of the week are the most difficult days for me to post outfit photos unless I have free time on the weekend to shoot an outfit or two.
Which is why I’ve been thinking about making Mondays a little bit more about me instead of just an outfit photo or two.
Anyway, this past weekend didn’t start off so great. Unless you go back to Wednesday when Jason and I went to a Bottle and Bottega painting event at Geek Bar. Jason was a Kickstarter supporter of the bar but we’d never been until last week. I convinced Jason to join me because he could paint a Death Star. And a TARDIS.
Thursday evening Jason and I went to Brooklyn Boulders, the indoor climbing gym near our apartment.
Friday afternoon was a work event at Dave & Buster’s so by the time I got home I was pretty wiped (and, admittedly, pretty buzzed from the free open bar). Both Jason and I basically fell asleep super early because Jason had to be up at 4AM in order to be at work at 6AM (and I had had one too many beers). This is why I sometimes can’t get outfit photos on weekends; my photographer works two 12-hour days in a row.
However, instead of outfit photos, I spent my Saturday morning arguing with several doctor’s offices trying to get a prescription filled. Let me tell you, fighting with people to get your anti-anxiety medication refilled is SO much fun. I hate talking on the phone on a good day. On a day when I’ve been out of meds AND have PMS? Yeah.
Sorry, that was probably TMI. Just trying to keep it real.
Anyway, once I FINALLY got someone to agree to refill my medication, I met a friend at Randolph Street Market where I sampled some yummy pesto and smoked sea salt while perusing both the vintage and non-vintage wares. I ended up buying some vintage serving platters for myself and a few fun things for gifts. I’m looking forward to going back this summer when there are even MORE vendors to choose from!
Then it was lunch in Greektown before hopping over to Live Grit to help them celebrate their one year anniversary. I helped start their Tuesday night run club, they’re teaching me how to swim, and they convinced me to do my first triathlon this summer.
Oh, speaking of which, if you need a new training swimsuit and don’t want to pay full price I highly recommend doing the swimsuit grab bag from Swim Outlet. You pick your size, brand and style and they pick the pattern and colors from what they have leftover from previous year’s models. I didn’t care what I got color-wise so this was perfect for me!
Sunday morning I went to the Tri Gear Swap Meet hoping to score a wetsuit. I promptly learned that I will be paying the extra money to Live Grit so that they can help me figure out how to put on the darn thing!
After that it was over to Maggie’s for a clothing swap! I finally got a black collared shirt and the cutest red sweater (among some other things).
Sometimes I get stressed out when I can’t get outfit photos for the blog and I do miss just writing about my life without worrying about if I have pretty pictures (or, heck, any pictures at all!)
So, I hope you don’t mind the occasional “this is my life” post!
