My typical “Over Cocktails” post usually posted on Friday’s has been pushed to Saturday. I tried writing this with 15 minutes to spare on Thursday night, but didn’t get the opportunity and couldn’t write at lunch yesterday because work was CRAZY BUSY – I didn’t even leave until 6:30 – who does that on a Friday? Not me typically, so I guess I can’t complain too much!
- My family was in town last weekend and we surprised our parents with an anniversary celebration at a new spot overlooking the river, River & Post. We even had the aunts/uncles in on the surprise who were waiting for us on the rooftop to have a drink before dinner/ Unfortunately it was REALLY cold, so we weren’t able to enjoy it as much as we would’ve liked, but it was a great time listening to my moms siblings reminisce over the actual wedding day 46 years prior. ❤️
2. Saturday night was a onesie bar crawl, because you know, I’m 36 and still doing bar crawls, but I find that everyone becomes best friends when you look like fools and I think it is so much fun! I dressed as a white tiger (even though it looks like a zebra) and had such a great time hitting up most of Jacksonville beaches finest watering holes!
3. Every morning as I’m getting dressed I watch the Today show. Well, Monday morning they were discussing ways to stop checking your phone as much throughout the day. Full disclaimer: I don’t necessarily think I check my phone THAT much, but I am inclined to grab it while sitting at a stop light or other times of impatience. So, at that moment, I decided to try out on of their techniques which was to put my phone on a grayscale. Everything was black and white – like the movie Pleasantville (and other earlier movies prior to the 50’s) and I gotta admit, I was less inclined to get on Instagram with the boring black/white colors. I did do it all week long, why – who knows why I really do anything stupid like this, but I like to try these ideas out. I even posted something to IG without knowing how it looked with the filter I choose and I”m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’m not going to lie though, I had a major blonde moment, when I decided to do this little “test” I screen-shot my phone, only to realize it would still show in color. 🤦🏼♀️
4. My brother-in-law and sister found me this hat and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! There’s reason I”m so excited – I signed just a lease to live up there for a few months! More to come on this in a later post, but I am SUPER EXCITED!!!
