Simple Pleasures

The end of another week and all I want to do is...absolutely nothing. Too bad there's this little thing called work

In the hours leading up to the weekend, I'll be thinking about these things...

Coming Home to Dinner

I don't always eat meat. In fact, I mostly prefer not to eat it. I have dabbled with being a vegetarian, but quite frankly I do indulge my carnivorous side on occasion. Tonight will be one of those nights. This morning I shuffled to the kitchen to get a roast in the crock pot. For people who don't know how to cook or just don't care to, making a pot roast in a crock pot is one of the easiest things to do because it's so hard to screw it up. I didn't follow the recipe for the photo above because I don't use gravy when cooking my roast. I prefer to use water since every roast I've made has always come out tender and juicy. This time I deviated away from my usual recipe of meat (coated in salt and pepper), potatoes, carrots, and onions, and this time added a little bit of garlic. Hopefully it won't be too overpowering. Fingers crossed! The best part is, I don't have to do a thing when I get home tonight. I'll just be waiting for that timer to go off at 5.

My Every Day Wallet

I have long since stopped using my yellow snake skin Guess wallet and my silver and black "lace" Betsey Johnson wallet. The reason? I bought this Coach wallet at the Gilroy Outlets and have never looked back. I didn't just buy it because it matched the tote I also bought, but more importantly, I realized I could use it as a clutch if I decided not to bring a purse at all. On a daily basis it makes its home in whatever purse I'm using, but each and every time I pull this puppy out, I smile. Something about it just makes me happy. I realize that this likely isn't a "real" Coach wallet since it's probably part of their factory line, but what do I care? I simply love this wallet.

An Impulse Buy

I have seriously curbed my online shopping habits ever since I started The Total Money Makeover. In fact, I rarely make an online purchase these days. Today was an exception. I received an email from Refinery29 for "32 vintage stunners that will seriously upgrade your wardrobe" and I knew I had to check it out. What I found were very reasonable prices and a silk blouse that I know I can pull off despite it's busy pattern. Unfortunately, I missed out on this little number, but I am more than happy with the paisley blouse (although I don't see a paisley on the thing!). The color scheme will complement my skin tone and it has the feel of a beautiful Indian garment, which I just love. I cannot wait to wear this...hopefully it ships soon!
