Happy Fri-yay! It has been a crazy week and I definitely learned to not be hard on myself about my typical routine. Work was back to normal hours yesterday which was good but I’m ready for the weekend! Fingers crossed the work day flies by for us all. Have a wonderful day 🙂
Dinner With Coworkers
As I have previously mentioned, my boss and the other packaging engineer on the team were in New Jersey this week. On Wednesday night after some loooong work days, the three of us went out to dinner with someone else we work with. Even though I wish I wasn’t having such a bad week at work, having all of us there to blow off some steam was great. Plus getting to see my boss outside of work since I don’t see him much was a bonus. We went to Triumph Brewing Company in Princeton and spent at least 3 hours all talking and hanging out. Going out with coworkers and a beer or two is a great way to get to know each other better which I thought was exactly what the four of us needed.
I don’t drink pop really. Yes I call soft drinks pop, it’s a Midwest thing. Very randomly I’ll drink it but I just don’t really like it anymore! Usually I just drink plain old water. That gets boring after a while so I’ll switch it up to seltzer. It’s safe to say Alex and I are both obsessed with Vintage! No seriously obsessed, we bought 48 bottles one day. It’s the best seltzer that we have tried (and we’ve tried a lot!). There’s no syrupy flavor to it which is the best part. Lately I’ve been sipping on raspberry lime but I love mandarin orange, pomegranate and lemon lime as well.
Help Without Asking
With the long work hours (sorry to continuously bring it up…) I did next to nothing throughout the week in terms of chores. Wednesday night, Alex managed to check our mail (we’re horrible at doing that), vacuum the apartment, make lunches, prep coffee and tea for the morning, and emptied all the garbage cans without me asking. He also tidied up all the tax documents that I’ve been getting in the mail so I can easily send them to my Dad. He is the best my friends ❤
If I had to pick one makeup item to only use I would either pick concealer or mascara but I think I would pick this product! This concealer from Maybelline is amazing. It covers up so much with just the tiny amount. The tube lasts forever too and it’s super portable if you like keeping something with you for touch ups although I find that it lasts all day on my skin. The formula is really lightweight as well so I don’t even feel it on my skin. Plus it’s drugstore so you can’t beat the price.
Technically this isn’t something I ate this week but I’m obsessed with buffalo chicken and who doesn’t love a good dip? Since the Super Bowl is this weekend, I wanted to share a dish I think you would all love. If you know me then you know I love hot sauce and buffalo chicken. About two months ago I made this buffalo chicken dip and I might make it again for the game Sunday. I thought I’d share it in case you are stuck on what to make for your viewing.
Question of the day: What’s one thing you’ve been obsessing over this week?
