It's Back to Work I Go

Yesterday was my last day of vacation.  I miss it already!  I was on vacation for 11 days and I loved every minute of it.  I got to spend time at home with the parental units.  I saw a movie with my dad, did some shopping with mom, we all went down to the Greenway and walked, and of course the fair!  Mom and I drove back up to Northern VA and got to see my Bestie Lindsay and her fabulous family.  We did some more shopping too.  Then I got some awesome relax time.  I didn't really know what to do with my last day.  I could have sat in my pajamas all day, but I thought I should get out of the house.  So, I did!  I decided to travel to a little area called Clarendon and walk around the shops.

I had been wanting to go to the Container Store and look at some drawer organizers for a little while now.  I love the Container Store.  I could buy everything in there!  I love the Closet section.  Sometimes I find myself shopping the closets.  Take this one for example ~ Some super cute purple clothes.  Too bad the dresses weren't for sale!


Then I wandered over to Crate & Barrel.  I wandered around there too and tested out some of the couches. This couch was super comfortable!  Too bad it was around $1400; a little out of my price range.


I had to go to Barnes & Noble.  I LOVE that store!  I could spend all day in BN, but then I remembered that I have a pretty awesome book at home that I'm reading (Joyland by Stephen King and I think it's finally picking up), so I headed home after that.


When I got home I finished Season 1 of the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black.  I had no idea it is based on a true story!  While I was Googling the OITNB picture I found the book.  I'll have to check it out for sure.  The show is fantastic and I can't wait for Season 2 next year.

Vacation was wonderful and I can't wait for the next one (January with mom...destination TBD).  It's back to work I go.  Boo!  I had to get back to reality at some point, though, right?  Might as well do it today.  At least I'm coming back on a Wednesday, so it's a short work week!
