Happy, happy Friday!
First, if you could take this four-question, anonymous survey (answer only the questions you want!), I’d be so grateful: http://svy.mk/2l5EdpM
Second, today, I am heading to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic with five of my coworkers and am so excited! By the time you’ve read this, we’ll probably be through security and enjoying mimosas at the airport bar or 35,000 feet above. We don’t really have any plans other than to soak up all our resort has to offer—it’s all-inclusive and there are flamingos on-site, so we’re pretty stoked. Because I am not working on the blog this weekend and already have a busy week next weekend, things might be slow over here next week. But, if you’re looking for something else to read, I’ve been loving Kelly in the City, The Golden Girl, and Lemon Stripes as of late.
This week was pretty slow at work, but my after-work activities kept me busy. We have a big event at work on President’s Day, so I know in the coming weeks, my social life won’t be as prioritized as it was this week so it was nice to catch up with some Georgetown gals and a cousin this week. Whatever you’re up to this week and next—I hope you have a great time! x
