Weekend Favorites

Saturday, February 13, 2016

It's seven degrees today. Or -4 with windchill. Whatever you prefer.

I will not be leaving the house, no thank you. Instead I'm going to blog, work, pack t-shirts, you know just live that dream life that I'm living!

I'm trying to be responsible and catch up on all work before I leave for Steamboat next week.  Winter ski trips are great. We're leaving the cold for .... more cold. But seriously, I just love cabin drinking. I don't know what it is, there's just something so enjoyable about drinking in the mountains.

But I'm a terrible skier. I usually just tell Chris and his family I'll meet them in the bar. I like to sit at Slope Slide and drink a Bloody while I watch all of the skiers come down the mountain.

The first time I skied with his family I fell off the chair lift at the end and had to army crawl away before the next chair lift hit me in the head. I cried. Several times.

The main point of the Colorado trip is to do wedding stuff. Food tasting. Cake tasting. Ext. So that should be interesting. Chris and I don't really care about cake, so I'm still rooting for a giant chocolate chip cookie cake. I guess we'll see what happens.

I also ordered this game to bring because I am a child and I think it will be a blast. I tried to get it over Christmas but it was sold out everywhere. My mom and I went on a Beanie Baby like hunt in December trying to find it but no such luck.

And now for other random facts I probably don't need to share but am choosing to do so because it's Saturday and that feels like a free day to me.

Watched: Spotlight. 
The story of corruption in the Catholic church. So many feelings about this movie. So many pissed off feelings. Have you seen it? It's just very upsetting to think about how many kids suffered from this.

Let's change the subject before I get snippy.

Eating: Puppy chow. Damn it, mom. Why did you send this to me? I've already eaten three bowls today.

pretty pretty polish. 

Wearing: Pretty rings.
I talk about Rocksbox all of the time because it's truly one of my favorite things. I have no idea what to buy when it comes to jewelry, luckily Rocksbox knows me by now and sends me all my favorite dainty little pieces. Use code:  thedailytayxoxo to get a free month.

Planning for: Scottsdale in a couple of weeks with some of my besties to celebrate my pal, Kate's bachelorette! I haven't been on a bachelorette in ages and I'm so excited to be with my pals! It's hard to go from seeing your friends every day to only once per year.

I  got this new swim suit at Target a few weeks ago to inspire me to eat healthy. So far it hasn't worked.

Also, I'm very tempted to get a random one piece that says Island Vibes or Let's Party or something equally stupid. But I'm not sure I'm cool enough to pull it off.

How does this swimsuit fit people who don't look like models, I wonder? Can't they make it with a little more material?

And finally.

I'm browsing this store for cute baby items for the baby showers I have coming up this spring. NOT FOR ME. For my friends. This is one of my favorite sellers on nebrowse and I definitely suggest you check out all of her very cute stuff.

Back into my writing cave I go. Have a great Saturday! Stay warm, Chicago.
