This week went by fast! In fact, most of my weeks now happen fast seeing as my “weekends” occur mid-week. The life of a bartender I suppose….
I’m just going to jump right into a little brain dump from the past few days so please enjoy!
OIAJ….wow, it’s been so long. I have been hoarding this near-empty jar of sunflower seed butter all week in order for this to happen. My heart was fulfilled once again.
Do you know what is possibly the best invention ever….dry ice! I spent way too much time unproductively playing with a small piece from a shipment I received. Who would have thought that a little chunk of ice could provide hours of mindless pleasure. This was just the mental break I needed after hours of writing and a painful Monday.
I know Chicago is known for many things, but I can not get over how good the sushi is here! I think I’ve had it at least twice a week since arriving. It also doesn’t help that there are endless sushi joints within a 3 mile radius from me.
Speaking of Chicago food, I don’t think I have been disappointed yet with a meal I’ve ordered. Even something simple like the chicken salad I had from a local coffee shop the other day was some of the best I’ve ever had. The midwest knows food…that’s all I’m saying!
I treated myself to a pedicure for Valentine’s Day this year. I think it’s been almost a year since I had a pedicure and my goodness did I enjoy it. Forget chocolate, paying someone to rub my feet after spending 12 hours on them the day before was the most wonderful gift I could have ever given myself.
Well, that’s all I have from this week. Hope everyone is looking forward to a fantastic (hopefully long) weekend!
Bye for now!
