Awkward & Awesome Thursday

It’s Thursday, and you know what that means! Awkward & Awesome time! I bet you thought I forgot! Nothing earth-shattering this week, but here are the highlights:

  • I didn’t buy anything on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. I don’t know why! I’m counting on the residual sales to do my gift shopping.
  • My boyfriend decided to be sweet and cute and take me to the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony this Monday! I was so excited and pleasantly surprised because we appeared to be some of the first people there. When 20 minutes passed and there was still a lack of hustle and bustle, we started to worry. After consulting our dear friend Google, we discovered that the ceremony was scheduled for Wednesday. Oopsies.
  • I’m having a love affair with Pinterest. I can’t stop pinning things! I even created my Christmas list on Pinterest. I got crazy pin-happy and had to go back and unpin a bunch of unnecessary items.
  • Yesterday the boyfriend sent me a text that read, “the toilet is broken, I’ll fix it tomorrow.” Ok, no big deal, these things happen. I came home after a night out with the girls to find a seatless toilet in my bathroom. I don’t even want to know what happened.

  • Oh goodness, this is my third boyfriend-related bullet of this post. His name is Jamie, we can call him that sometimes. We celebrated our 3 year anniversary last week with a lovely dinner at Marrekesh in Philly, and he bought me the most beautiful earrings ever from Diana Warner. He’s so awesome, I don’t deserve it!
  • Last night was girls night. Woohoo! I went to 508 with some lovely ladies. Highlights include incredible hybrid wine and truffle mac & cheese. If you think that sounds incredible, you’re thinking right. Oh. My. God. Delicious! 
  • Kate Spade hijacked Gilt Groupe today. The sale runs one more day so get to shopping
  • I’m going to kick off my holiday shopping this weekend at the SheMakes Holiday Festival – a gathering of handmade goodies from female entrepreneurs in NYC.
