It’s Friday again! Thank goodness, right? I feel like I need this weekend in order to catch up on life and my to-do list. My bedroom has been a mess for weeks, I still have approximately a million Christmas cards to write, and I told two friends I would attempt to make them save the dates by next week. So if I could knock all of that off the list tomorrow, that would be great.
My one up this week was definitely getting together with Marie & Jai for our annual Christmas celebration. I think it started 5 years ago. One year we went to afternoon tea, the next we went to afternoon tea again. The year after that we went to a shooting range (these things are very similar), then the next year we went to Moshulu for brunch (& Claire joined us!). This year we stayed in and cooked inner. Jai made ricotta & spinach filled stuffed shells, we made chocolate-covered strawberries, we ate expensive cheese from DiBruno Brothers, they drank mojitos, I drank white wine, and it was delicious. Then we painted our nails, tried on clothes, and talked about boys. It was pretty much the best. This year’ Claire’s in the UK, but hopefully we’ll be seeing her or skyping her in soon!
So it’s not really a down, just kind of a bummer. There’s a package that I’ve been waiting for that was supposed to arrive in Philadelphia on Friday. I have no idea what’s inside the package, but I’m super curious, and you know what? UPS lost it. LOST it. I didn’t even realize that was an option, but apparently it is. My curiosity is driving me slightly bonkers, but that’s okay, because the people who sent it are resending it – and staying on UPS’s case like a hawk, so that’s cool too. Yay for nice awesome on-top-of-everything people.
I’ve been telling a lot of people this in real life, but it’s about time I shared it with the internet. I’m thinking about writing an e-book about how to stay in touch with people. It would give tips and tricks that I’ve learned along the way along with a calendar of how to stay in touch all year without looking like you’re trying too hard. Let me know what you think. I just need to find some free time.
How was your week this week? Any big weekend plans coming up?
