This was the MOST FUN I have had blogging in a long time! This post is a reflection of a day in the life of me. I was originally worried that my day wouldn’t have anything worth reporting. I mean, I work a normal, computery, 9-5 job… that isn’t always the most exciting.
However, what I found by doing this exercise was that beauty is all around me – it’s in every moment of my life. Even at the auto body shop!
“What does an average Wednesday look like for Maureen?” you wonder.
Well wonder no more…
|Woke up at 7am to a GORGEOUS view out of my bedroom window.|
|Took my car to the shop at 8am because Advanced Towing put a giant scratch in it and is refusing to pay. Rude!|
|Settled myself at my desk around 9, finished my coffee, and dug into the day.|
|I can only take so many pictures of my desk… but this was my life from 9am-6pm.|
|Lunch. At my desk. Mostly gross looking but kind of ok tasting. This is what happens when you grab a frozen meal because you don’t have time to grocery shop (read: you have time but you are too lazy).|
|Still at work. But I have this beautiful passage on my desk to remind me that I’m in the right place.|
|This was absolutely as good as it looks! My boss made a batch of cookies which was the best part of my afternoon!|
|I love living in D.C.|
|Heading out after a day of work. I swear, every day leaving the office and stepping into the sunshine feels like the Shawshank Redemption.|
|Read a bit of my current book club book while waiting for Stephanie at a 6:15 dinner.|
|BLOGGER MEET-UP! I was delighted to finally meet Stephanie in person. She is such a doll and I can’t wait to follow her adventures to St. Louis and then force her to take me dancing with her friends when she comes back to D.C.|
|We had dinner at BTS in Foggy Bottom. Holy moly was this burger amazing! I ate the entire thing. And then proceeded to moan that I was too full for the rest of the night.|
|Also, Burger Tap Shake makes it’s own onion rings. Seriously. Go there. Now.|
|Picking up my car. 🙂|
|Finally home around 8pm and these babies are making my apartment smell like heaven.|
|I love when the days are long and I get to enjoy the sun in the morning and in the evening!|
|Wine and nails and the TV. Yep. I was a happy girl.|
|Red for hot summer nights. I’m ready!|
