I sprung out of bed right when my alarm went off and took Harlow for a quick jog, came home and did some yoga in my living room, and then drank two cups of coffee all before 8:00 a.m.
I swear to God that's what I thought I did this morning. Turns out I didn't do any of that.
Does anyone else ever have those dreams where you go through your entire morning routine and it feels 100% real? But then you wake up and realize oh shit, I'm still sleeping. Yea, that happened to me today.
But rather than focusing on the negative, I'm going to focus on the positive and talk about five things I'm loving right now. Like for starters the weather in Chicago. I don't know where the usual midwest humidity has been, but it hasn't been around Chicago. And thus I've been spending my afternoons working at Starbucks. For whatever reason a Starbucks patio is my happy place.
And then there's dog bars. Chicago is full of them. Why drink at home with your dog when you can take him to a bar? Har's favorite spot is Raven's. Although tonight he's asked to go to Fish Bar. Last time he went there he drank way too much and really embarrassed himself, so we'll see if they let him in again.
I feel like such a cliche blogger for this next one but I can't help it. I am really digging my new camera strap. It makes me want to wear tights under my jean shorts and head to Wicker Park to photograph inspirational graffiti while I sip PBR. I mean look how cute it is, if a Native American blanket inspired camera strap doesn't make me stylish, well then I don't know what does.
iMo has a great selection of hand made straps, check them out here.
And then we've got my first official Bulu Box. Has anyone else tried this yet? It's a vitamin, supplement and general health subscription sample box mailed to you each month. And best yet, the company is located in Nebraska! After eating nothing but hot dogs, chips, and beer during the 4th of July this was exactly what I needed. My favorites from this box was the protein bar and the anti- hangover pills...
Check out Bulu Box here and use the code "DAILYTAY" to get 50% off when you order.
Last but not least, I'm happy today is finally Friday. We could all use more Fridays in the summer I think. Make the most of it.
