Every week goes by so fast it’s insane. I know this, yet I find myself wishing time away every week counting down to the weekend. I’m trying to focus on slowing down and enjoying the little things that make me happy each week. What better way to celebrate hump day than to discuss some of the things that made me happy this week?? Some of them make me way happier than they should, but hey I’ll take it! Here we go:
- An empty grocery store (picture from my insta story.) Grocery stores in the city can be so packed on weekends you can barely get from point a to point b without running into someone. A trip to an empty grocery store with a hot coffee in hand can be so relaxing. On this particular day, there was a team meeting going on at Mariano’s and I heard them talking about their charitable efforts and then chanting a team pump up chant and I found myself wishing that I, too worked at Mariano’s. Anyone else ever wish they worked at the grocery store? Just me?
- Picking up treats on the way home from work. I love city living so much. I can decide on a whim to walk into gourmet and delicious bakeries to bring a treat home on a bad day, or a date night, or the day before a holiday, or a Tuesday… this one here is from The Godess and the Baker which just opened right by my bus stop! Hello oatmeal cowboy cookie <3
Here’s to stumbling upon this winter guide and spending almost $400 dollars before 7am sitting at O’Hare waiting for my flight to Buffalo. But yay can’t wait for my packages to arrive when I get home!
- Free work snacks. And others who are willing to share.
- This new Christmas album
