How was your week? Mine was very…full. On Saturday, I unchained myself from my computer and Joey and I went out for breakfast and coffee. During the week, we make coffee at home but on the weekends we like to treat ourselves. I love the atmosphere at the Stumptown on Belmont. And, the heart espresso art is always an added bonus!
A friend brought by homemade fudge in a Le Parfait jar. Iâ€™ve had a few late nights of working on client projects this week and itâ€™s been welcome company. 😉
I forgot to post this last week â€” as I was cleaning out my office closet at the beginning of the new year, I found my stash of Urban Outfitters catalogs! Much of these date back to 2008. I always refer back to them for inspiration when Iâ€™m working on lookbooks.
All I have to say about the above photo is, â€œAHHHHH!â€ Iâ€™ve mentioned a few times in the past that there are a few rooms in our house Iâ€™ve never, ever shown. The bathroom on our main floor was one of them. It was absolutely disgusting. So bad in fact that I hadnâ€™t used it a single time since we bought our house five years ago! Finally, with a chunk of time blocked out, Joey demolished the entire thing. This is what we were left with. I should mention that itâ€™s looking slightly better now (no more rubble!) and within a week, weâ€™ll have white subway tile to the ceiling! I know nothing about construction so I spend my days hiding out in my office with the door closed. Haha.
Weâ€™ve been on the hunt for a new breakfast spot but nothing weâ€™ve tried lately has been that great. We finally stopped into Jam and loved it. Do you have any other recommendations for vegan-friendly breakfast places?
On Sunday, I got a text that my family was meeting up at Edgefield, one of my favorite places to go when I want to escape city life. I ended up at the bar that sits at the base of a golf course (I did try golfing there once and made an absolute fool of myself!) and sipping a martini while watching the sun set. Before Iâ€™d left for the night, Iâ€™d looked up plane tickets on my phone and agreed to join my grandparents on an upcoming Reno trip. Good times (and gambling!) are in my immediate future.
Iâ€™ve been working on setting some solid business goals because Branch has been crazy busy with client work and I need to figure out where we want to take things. Getting so much work so quickly has been awesome but I want to make sure weâ€™re taking on the right kinds of projects and focusing on what we want things to look like for the future.
And with that, I need to wrap up some work so I can head to a fancy cocktail gathering at Alexandraâ€™s new place and then, I’m going out to a goth club. Pretty much my idea of a perfect night. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
