Friday Faves

Can you believe it’s the last Friday in September? Next week it’ll be October and before we know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Packing and living amongst boxes has been a challenge and I’m greatly looking forward to our move next week. We can finally settle back into a normal routine. And hopefully Harvey won’t be so antsy dealing withall the recent clutter. I don’t think he likes change. :)

Without further ado, a few of my recent favorites…

Cookies & Cream Bonk Breaker

IMG_3486Seriously, shut the front door. These are new from Bonk Breaker and crazy good. We received these yesterday at work, and I had to try it right away. Espresso Chip was my long-time fav (mainly because I think it tastes like a coffee brownie), but who doesn’t love cookies & cream? It’s my favorite ice cream, and now quite possibly, my favorite protein bar.

Moving, sucks.

In just over a week Jon and I are moving to a new apartment just north of downtown. It is kind of bittersweet leaving downtown (since we absolutely LOVE the area), but we just need more space. And the downtown prices are spenzy!

I hate moving. Since 2008, I’ve never lived in the same place more than a year, and not for any particular reason other than a move seemed necessary (moving states, need to be closer to work, more space, etc.). Those reasons always outweighed my hate for packing.

Twice as nice

A while back I ran across an ad on my Facebook page for Twice. Twice is an online consignment boutique for women. Shop brand names at low prices. Items are like-new and gently worn. But the best thing about Twice is selling your clothes to them. We all have items in our closet that we don’t wear anymore. What sucks is that some of the things we’ve only worn a couple of times and the thought of just giving it away really stinks. Especially when you might have paid top dollar for it! Whatever the case – Twice wants your clothes and they will pay you for them! Request a free shipping bag (or shipping label), fill it up with your unwanted items, and they take care of the rest.

Since Jon and I are moving apartments soon, it was a good time to go through and purge my closet (and long overdue). I have a hard time getting rid of clothes sometimes, but I went with the philosophy “have I even worn this in the past year?” If the answer was no, into the Twice pile it went. In the end, I had a mountain of clothes to send.

Friday Faves

TGIF! Even though I have to work every weekend, I still really love Fridays. Especially Fridays that I have off – which lucky for me, has been a lot lately. :) Before I buckle down and get some work done, I wanted to share a few of my latest favorite things…

Morning walks with Harvey

photo 2With my job, my new part time gig, Jon’s new job, our biz, and our upcoming move, things have been quite busy in Pritzland. This has just drained me and I haven’t made it to the gym in what feels like forever. In a means to do something I’ve been taking long walks with Harvey in the morning. He loves (literally) chasing squirrels up the trees – although in this picture it looks like he’s trying to take a bite out of the tree!

Jo’s Coffee

Third time is a charm

Overall I have been completely happy with my experience with Stitch Fix. I think the stylist has done a good job at understanding my style and I’ve been happy with her selections. When the box of goodies came on Monday I could hardly get the box open fast enough!

I like to read the note I receive my stylist first so I opened the envelope before checking out the goods. When I read it, I was sad to learn that I was styled by someone else. I thought I had requested to stay with the same stylist, but maybe she’s no longer there or was on vacation – bummer!
