Day 325: Atlanta is Falling Apart

I’ve complained before: Atlanta is not good at traffic. Not only have they not quite managed the concept of merging, they also arbitrarily speed up and slow down. Bottom line, it is a nightmare to drive here. So imagine one of our busiest highways catching fire during the afternoon commute. All I can say is that I’m so incredibly glad that I worked from home today and that there were no injuries or fatalities when the i85 in Atlanta caught on fire and eventually collapsed today.  We watched the news coverage (which was our collective first exposure to local news) with a group of friends at game night. It was absolutely wild. Now we’ll just have to see how tomorrow’s commute is!

Since today was my work from day, I stayed in comfy clothes all day! I wore my Red Sox shirt, which was a good homage to the season almost starting again. I will say, the thing I miss most about the northeast is going to a Sox game!

Day 304: Fake Friday

Fun fact today is NOT my Friday – even though the volume of wine drank last night would tell you otherwise. Usually tonight is our game night with our group of friends but L and I were far too exhausted. We ended up spending the night catching up on TV shows and going to bed early. What happened to college-Rachael who could go out every night for a week straight? 

I’m not going to lie. I absolutely hate this outfit. This morning I was exhausted and thought this all looked good together, but looking at it now I completely hate it. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Day 290: Game Night

Thursday is GAME NIGHT! We have a great group of friends who host a game night every Thursday and it’s so much fun. When I first started playing, I wasn’t very good (Catan was my enemy) and I hate not being good at anything. Over time, I’ve gotten much better – you’re actually looking at the second-place winner of Ticket to Ride this week. Although I guess you’re not actually looking at me. And you probably won’t be reading me due to the sheer volume of nerdiness going on right now.

Today our office was FREEZING! Usually I’d be fine with this top and some pants but today I wore my office cardigan (and accidentally brought it home).

Sound off: What’s your favorite board game to play?

Day 212: Red Wine Day Two

Last night was ‘game night’ at one of our friends’ houses. We try to get together every Tuesday for a strategy-based game: last night we played Ticket to Ride and I loved it! I also loved the red wine . Okay, maybe I loved the red wine a little more. So much so that I skipped barre this morning – oops! I guess our love wasn’t reciprocal.

Today I was filled uninspired and boring. On the way to drop off Stormy at puppy day care, I saw two women who layered perfectly with some gorgeous vests. These days when I feel a bit frumpy are the hardest to not shop. I made a vow to play with more layering the rest of this week (which won’t be hard when L and I head up to Boston this weekend!). Otherwise, I do love this shirt that L’s mother gave me for my birthday!
