Is going well so far! I woke up a little before my alarm so I was early! I put on makeup before leaving the house which has happened mmm never since I’ve worked for the Sun Times. I also was so early that there were still spots open on the 4th floor of the parking garage! AND I even had time for coffee. If you don’t know me, this is a big accomplishment. I’m always running late and doing things at the last minute. I usually put makeup on when I get to work and then go to Starbucks after that.

I met Kiersten for drinks after work yesterday. We went to Rivers. We split crab and artichoke dip. It was soo good. It reminded me of the Canadian friends we made at Myrtle Beach last spring break. I also found a new favorite drink. Brady and I actually discovered it when I was in California, but now I know it has a name. Its vodka and grapefruit juice and its called a greyhound. Its really good. After that, we wanted chocolate and weren’t satisfied with the menu options so we went to Crumbs Bakery. I would venture to say we might be mild cupcake snobs seeing as Molly’s is so close to school and we would go there pretty frequently when I was still at DePaul. I thought Crumbs was really good. Their cupcakes were huge and they had a big variety even for it being 7:00 when they close at 8. We asked the girl about almost every cupcake before deciding to split a half and half cupcake. It was marble cake with vanilla frosting on the inside, then half chocolate frosting and half vanilla frosting with cookie dough and brownie pieces on top. It was just the dessert we were looking for!

I finished Vanishing Acts last night. It was a really, really good book. I think I need a break from such heavy topics though. The last 2 books I’ve read by Jodi Picoult have involved child abuse and jail. I’m going to start Once Upon a Time, There Was You.

Dress update: the red one is in Indiana and the black one is in New Jersey. I hope they get here today!
