Overwhelmed!

Back to work today, and boy was it crazy! Lots of missed emails and voicemails to return. Plus, it was a teammate’s birthday, so I organized a carryout lunch order and the birthday luncheon today. Luckily, the birthday girl enjoyed herself, and I ended up getting some work done. These days off are a blessing and a curse. #firstworldproblems

I was overwhelmed at work today, so much that I had to take several breaks to just walk away, grab some water, and pull myself together. Do you guys ever have moments like that? I’d like to think that it is an everyone occurrence, not just a Katie thing! I’m ready for my next two full days of work (1/2 day Friday, full day Monday, and 1/2 day Tuesday) to fly by. Then it is 5.5 days of relaxation time! Please. Come. Soon!

Snow Scarf

Luckily, I am not actually wearing a scarf of snow, can you imagine how miserable that would be? Indianapolis got a bit of a snowfall last night (weather report says about 3 inches of snow), and The Fiancé and I luckily both were already taking a day off work to spend a “day date” together. I thought I would incorporate this bright scarf to a.) keep in line with my Five for Friday scarf theme this week, b.) to provide a bit of bright colors to the dreary scenery, and c.) to help me stay warm as we’ll be walking around downtown.

We’ve had our bagels from Einstein Bagels for breakfast and dropped my car off to get its oil change (being an adult is so glamorous), and now, we are headed downtown to take in the holiday decorations, visit the Eiteljorg Museum, and try the legendary (and very fiery) shrimp cocktail from St. Elmo’s Steakhouse. Hopefully, I’ll be able to snag some photos and can post the details of the trip on this blog!

Stay warm out there, folks!

Casual Weekend

This is one of the few weekends in November and January that the Fiance and I are traveling, so I am excited for a chill and easy weekend, especially since I seem to have caught a cold and might need some couch time to recover. I made the Fiance take me out for pancakes this morning at The Original Pancake House, and we shared some pancakes (his: banana and hers: bacon) and downed some coffee. He’s off to a nerd card tournament, and I am going thrift shopping with my best friend, B.

This outfit works well for both pancakes and shopping, and it will keep me warm, as the temperatures are dropping here in Indiana.

Cheers to a great weekend!
