excuses, excuses...

So, yesterday was a DAY, in the best possible way. My new position was officially announced to both the team that I will be managing going forward, as well as the team that I will be leaving behind. Well, not leaving behind, so much, as we all still report up through the same director, but I’ll be based out of a different office for a time, so they will all miss me terribly.



Anyway, after all of that announcing, which took up most of my morning, I actually had work that needed to be done (imagine the nerve of them, giving me a promotion and expecting me to keep working while all of this is going on…), followed by evening plans with my old college roommate, where we relived the good old days by catching our university’s Glee Club on their spring break tour stop in Atlanta.

(You know what’s really depressing? Those boys looked like babies compared to us.

Even more depressing? This actually marked the 10-year anniversary of the Chicago spring break concert we hit up back in the day, the one that was followed by a late night of bar hopping and a really long/really early flight to London, my eventual spring break destination for that year. That just sounds more fun than being in bed by 10:30 and up at work the next day.

Ah well.)

So, basically, this is just a long way of saying that I ran out of time to take outfit pictures yesterday. Try not to miss my bright, shining face too much today.

My substitution?

Things that make me happy at this moment:

1)      Revlon Just Bitten lipstain and balm – Guys, it’s a lipstain, with a balm on the other end! I’ve been hooked on the Cover Girl lipstain for a couple of months now, but I thought I’d give this one a shot, since it’s two-in-one, and I am a marketer’s dream. Wouldn’t you know it, I like this one better. Go figure.

2)      CBS Sports’ free iPhone app that provides live streaming of all NCAA tournament games – This girl right here was born and raised in Indiana, where this weekend was practically a state enforced holiday for all citizens.

3)      Cadbury Caramel Eggs – Hoo buddy…those things are a-MAZING!

4)      Springtime – It’s supposed to be 80 degrees this weekend. I may have just shed a tear of joy.

5)      My husband – Last year for Mother’s Day, he bought me a spa gift certificate. Guess who’s finally cashing that in on Saturday?

What’s making you happy today?
