Hip Hip Hooray for My Friday!

Here I go again with a Friday that's not a Friday! Yes, it is Wednesday, but it is also My Friday! I have the next two days off, all to myself. Now, don't get jealous. I do have to work Saturday and Sunday night. I had a pretty good week; let's recap...

~ Thursday I went to Alexandria's Fashion Night Out with Lindsay. We found some great new stores!! Lou Lou is a fantastic accessories store with so much to choose from. They have everything from earrings to purses to scarves! I will definitely be checking it out again. The best part is they have stores all over the city!

~ On Friday I got to reconnect with a friend I haven't seen in quite a while, Ms. Stephanie. She is probably one of the funniest people I know and I love her! Following that, Lindsay hosted her 31 Gifts party. It's a great line that makes purses, tote bags, accessories, wallets, etc. You can get everything personalized too! Lindsay gave me a great tote bag for my birthday last year that I carry with me to work all the time!
I pulled this picture from their website (I'm obviously not Cassie), but this is the one I have. Mine is in a black and white polk-a-dot print! Love it!!!

~ Saturday I worked, but afterwards I headed to a friend's for some college football! After the game we walked up to Clarendon and had a great dinner at EvenTide.
They have three levels! The 1st floor is called "Odd Bar," 2nd floor is the main dining area called Eventide, and the 3rd floor is their rooftop terrace. We had dinner in Odd Bar and the food was fantastic. I seem to be eating red meat more often now. I just can't get enough!

~ Sunday evening I reunited with my roomies, Jacq and Frisco. If you remember, Jacq was my most recent roommate, along with her cat Frisco. I went over to her new one bedroom and we had wine and pizza! Frisco left me with some love scratches! Jacq is doing great and her boyfriend just got a new job in DC. He'll be moving up from Florida soon. Yay!

Here is Frisco, entranced by the blinking light of Jacq's internet modem!

~ On Monday I started wearing my new suit this week! Mom bought it for me at Express and I absolutely love it!!!
It is a zip-back stretch tweed skirt and I also have the jacket that goes with it. Color block is HUGE for fall, so I'm very "in" right now.

I'm very much looking foward to my days off. Tomorrow I fight the good fight against fraud at Wells Fargo and then off to Shooter McGee's for Pub Trivia! Friday will be a pamper day. Thinking about going to a movie, possible seeing "The Possession."

Have a great "weekend" and until next time ~ *erica*
