Today, Mels, Steph, Kaitlyn, and I went to the Sweet cupcake shop to celebrate it being Friday and just because :). I had a really delicious “Mint Condition” (chocolate mint) cupcake with green frosting for St. Patrick’s Day. It was a special on the menu just for this week, so I treated myself to it- I’ve gotten a lot better about treating myself to little things like this occasionally and it’s really worth it. Sure, you can eat fat free or low fat foods all the time, but honestly, this was so much more satisfying, and I got to enjoy some time with my friends from work :).
We also had a birthday celebration for my project manager, Rhonda, yesterday. She’s turning 40 tomorrow, so we decorated her cubicle in black balloons and “40 is fabulous” signs. Also, they sang Happy Birthday to her in a meeting and one of our programmers played his guitar. It was pretty sweet- Financials team rules!
Yes! I’m not looking forward to losing an hour of sleep and losing an hour of my weekend, but I am looking forward to the sun staying out longer. This way I’ll be able to run after work without having to get off work super early. And really, I just like this time better.
2. Are you getting the new iPad/would you want a iPad?
Getting one? No. Want one? Well yeah, I’d take one. I’d rather just have a new laptop, though, so I’ll probably get a new laptop in the next few months anyway.
3. If money was not a problem, what is the one thing you would splurge on?
Well, money really isn’t a problem, but I’m pretty thrifty with it anyway (Pretty sure the fact that I’ve always been smart with my money is why I’m not in debt and why it’s not a problem…). I definitely splurge on nice vacations (cruises), but would love to splurge on a cruise around Europe.
Here’s a throwback picture from our first cruise in October 2009.
4. How did you and the Mr. (or Mrs.) meet?
This is probably a subject for an entire blog post rather than one question, but in short, we met while in college at Francis Marion University. Our first date was in the summer of 2005, where we went to Cici’s Pizza on a really rainy night after messaging each other on Myspace and AIM for a few weeks that summer.
Clay is still my #1, even though I haven’t used Myspace in probably 3 years…
5. Summer is right around the corner. Bikini or one-piece?
Well, I guess it’s obvious from the picture above, but I’m a bikini girl. I don’t think I’ve had a one-piece swimsuit since high school (I was heavier then). I never liked one piece swimsuits anyway and I’m sure I’ll wear bikinis until I have a child and no longer can- then I’ll switch to tankinis or something. I don’t wear super skimpy bikinis or thongs, though… yuck! I aim for classy, not trashy :).
