Hello sweeties!

How was your week? Mine was pretty dang good. Still pluggin’ away at the ol’ freelancing thing AND I managed to make some progress on my fall to-do list, namely re-take my office space and order a new (to me) computer.

I picked up a refurbished laptop on NewEgg which should be arriving shortly. I’ve already named her Ada and cannot wait for her arrival. She ain’t sleek, but she’s pretty powerful for what I paid for her. A full gushing post and office tour will be coming shortly.

Also, have you entered my TeeBlox giveaway yet? What are you waiting for?

This weekend will likely involve quite a bit of work, and hopefully some baking.

What do you have planned?

    It took me a long time to realize that the ‘Cool Girl’ attitude is so not healthy, nor does it promote anything good.

    Also, that boobs article is hysterical. 😀

    Can you please share some of that delicious productivity? I feel like I’ve been frozen in time for the past six months now *sigh*

    Ha, I tried to be the ‘cool girl’ for the longest time, and looking back, I really alienated myself from some fabulous people because of it. I was definitely the biggest loser in that regard.

    Epic wrap-up, as always! <3
