Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Put the F in Fun!

My last shift was crazy. Not as bad as some, but still high on the crazy scale. So as part of my unwinding last night Adam, September and I went to Specs for Wine Wednesday. It was crazy crowded. They said that it was a new record. There were some drunk jerks who kept trying to cut everyone. It seems that not everyone picked up on the etiquette of waiting in line for a group to go and then circling around with another group. Jerks or no jerks, it was a ton of fun. I tasted a lot of wines and found some ones that I really liked. The people working there were really helpful and nice.There were also lots of foods to try. Afterwards we went to eat at Carraba's. It was a really fun night and a good way to spend a Wednesday. Everyone should come next time if they can!

I heart this shoe

I keep stalking the aisles of DSW, Shoe Pavilion and other such shoe stores hoping to find a black low-top shoe that I can run in. Actually one that I can chase kids in. There are a few Sketcher options that I like, but I need to figure out if they would look ok with shorts and capri's. Next, I keep running into this pair of New Balance running shoes. I looove them, but they are like $70 and I have no idea if I loooove them that much. But either way, I heart them. They are pretty and sleek, yet functional. There are a few color options and I lean towards black because I have brown shoes for work. There is a shade of raspberry though that is also super pretty. And in other notes, I have the Justice song DANCE stuck in my head.

Sometimes I rhyme slow

Sorry for the delay in any update. I don't have anything important to say, but I wanted you all to know that I'm still alive. There isn't much going on with me except work and more work and then trying to pay off stupid student loans. OK, maybe they aren't stupid, but I made more money before I had a Masters so you do the math. I'm hoping to see Beauty and the Beast in the park this weekend and go swimming. It would be nicer if it were with friends, but I guess I at least get to do that sort of stuff at my job. It gets to me that everyone has such weird work schedules and it is so difficult to plan things. If anyone wants to go tubing next Thursday let me know - I'd love to get some more in this summer. Next Wednesday I will also be at Blues on the Green if anyone wants to join up. That's all I have for now. Now I need to go to the post office and mail a student loan that is late. sigh....
