Well, it’s been a hot minute since I talked to you ladies about my (offline) life lately, and what better time is there than the present?
MY DAY JOB / The President of my company is big on breaking everyday habits. For instance, driving to work a new way once a week or going to a new workout class instead of falling into your tried-and-true routine. He finds that he has some of his best ideas when he takes a new approach on life, so I took a page out of his book and completely reoriented the way I sit at my desk. I have a corner desk, and my monitor and chair used to face in the corner. This week, I change it so I face forward and it makes my desk seem so much larger than it was before! Added bonus—there’s room for a mini gallery wall. I framed this print and this print and am loving how much color they bring to my desk.
GRAD SCHOOL / I’ve had over a month off from Georgetown, and start back up this Wednesday. It was so nice having a long break. I’m actually kind of nervous about jumping back into things since I’ve had so much more me time than I do when I’m in school. Only four classes left—I finish in December—and I could not be more ready!
HART OF DIXIE / Y’all, I have been crushing some Hart of Dixie on Netflix. I watched seasons one and two in college, and recently picked up where I left off because I noticed they added season four! I actually finished the series on Friday night, and while I think the ending was perfect, I am bummed it’s over. If you know of any good One Tree Hill/The OC/Gilmore Girls–esq shows I should watch next, please let me know! Low brow CW teen dramas are probably my favorite genre.
THE WORKWEEK HUSTLE / Last time we talked, I was suffering a little Fitbit fatigue. Fear not, y’all, as I am now a bonafide stepper. My office bought everyone a health tracker of their choice so we could have inter-office competitions. Most of my close friends at work also opted for a Fitbit, which means we can compete weekly—and much to my dismay, on the weekends—to see who can accumulate the most steps. The competition is fierce, and I love how motivating it is. I’ve been going to the gym a lot more than I had been in recent months, and it’s definitely improved my mental and physical health.
CAKE DECORATING / Later this month, Charlotte and I are taking a Wilton Cake Decorating class at our local Michael’s store. I’m so glad to finally be enrolled in one, considering it’s been on my list of fun to-dos for a few years now. Here’s to hoping it comes in handy on all those Valentine’s day treats!
NEW YEAR, NEW SMILE / Growing up, I had braces for seven years. In hindsight, I think we’ve all realized my orthodontist was kind of a kook, and after talking with my dentist and meeting with an orthodontist, I’ve opted to start Invisalign treatments to fix my back bite and make room for a few veneers to perfect my smile. A few of my teeth are smaller than they should be and it’s always bothered me, so I’m excited to start treatment. I definitely have a girl crush on my orthodontist as well—we bonded over how gross we thought it was the dentist cleaned Ben’s teeth on The Bachelor. I mean, talk about unsanitary!
So now, enough about me. What’s new with your life lately?
