Weekend in Words

About Me

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.

weekend-shoesFriday | Saturday | Sunday

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.

paintingsCan you tell whose is whose?

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!

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!

    I, for one, like life posts 🙂

    UGH I’ve been so bad about convincing myself to get to BKB lately. I was so gung-ho about ladies night and was all, “This is going to be a Thing that I DO,” and I have utterly failed. Well, maybe not utterly, but I’ve only been once, and it was like a month ago? My running schedule keeps getting in the way. And I need to cash in my Gilt City deal there! Hoping to swing by next week. I miss climbing!

    I love life posts! I actually find it more interesting to read the blog when I know more about what’s going on with the writer. =)

    It was great to see you at the clothing swap this past Sunday! I can’t wait to see how you style the Eiffel Tower sweater!

    I need a new swimsuit so I just might need to order one of those grab bags!

    Doctors offices can be so frustrating sometimes! It drives me crazy. I switched over to Matt’s insurance at the beginning of the year and I still haven’t found a new doctor because I don’t want to go through the hassle.
