You know when you have one of these really great days? That was my day last Saturday! I hope those great days are not few and far between for you!
My day started with a run with these ladies. This is a small part of our Moms Run This Town group. We’ve got a pretty active group on Facebook, and I love getting together with them. I was going to do a long run of 7 or 8 miles… which then turned into me saying yes to 9 miles to go along with a friend. (I look like a ghost that ate a bug in this group shot. hahahaha!!)
I figured that run deserved a little treat, so I stopped by Starbucks. I feel all cool and sneaky when I ask them to put my Grande into a Venti cup, which also gets extra whipped topping. But seriously, there is always some Frappucino left in the blender which they just throw away, so why shouldn’t they give it to me! (Note – I even have fingernail polish on, big night ahead!)
Then I was cold, so I decided to go for a soak in the tub. Turns out we only had some kids bubble bath, so Bubble Gum scented tub it would be!
After lounging around a bit with the kids, it was time to get ready for a party. It was a party at my “new” job – an “after holiday” party. I bought new shirts for both Alan and I for the occassion. It’s so rare we get dressed up for fun events, our clothes needed a refresher. I might have been the only 49 year old shopping for themselves at Aeropostle that day, but what the heck, I liked the shirt!
Alan’s shirt is from American Eagle. Feeling quite young and trendy 😉 Yeah for big name tags!!
The party was at the “Toledo Club” which is an old building downtown. It used to be a men’s only social club! It’s filled with lots of ambiance, and beautiful vintage decor and intricate wooden designs. My pictures don’t do the building justice. Go check out the link! It would be a beautiful place for a wedding reception. We even had professional shots taken!
Luckily our friend is a member there so he gave us a “members only behind the scenes” tour. Very interesting! 5 floors of beautiful open stair cases, and rooms galore.
This room was just mesmerizing and crazy!
Some of my coworkers dancing the night away!
After a fun night of socializing, I think I stayed all the way up until midnight. Phew, that’s a late night for me!
Q: Do you enjoy soaking in a tub?
We have a very comfortable garden tub with jacuzzi jets. I rarely soak in the tub – I think I need to make that a priority!
Q: Do you find yourself asking if an article of clothing is “age appropriate” when you shop?
Bahaha! Asking for a friend.
Q: Does your employer have a holiday party during the season, or afterwards?
It’s nice to have this party after Christmas. December is just too busy!
