I saw on another blog a photo a day post and I thought it might be neat to do the same. Of course I totally forgot to take a picture every single day and only made it until Feb 21st before I totally gave up, but you get the gist. So here they are:
Feb 1. Burger at the bar down the road
Feb 2. Reading in bed
Feb 3. Pizza for dinner after a long day at work
Feb 4. Panera coffee and bagel
Feb 5. Parallel parked like a bad ass
Feb 6. Cupcakes at the New Hire Talent Show
Feb 7. Coffee milkshake with lunch from Potbelly
Feb 8. OOTD
Feb 9. New wall decor from Target (we love wine)
Feb. 10. Old shoes make a comeback
Feb 12. Snow storm
Feb 13. Long day at work
Feb 14. New scarf I got for Christmas
Feb 15. Eye ball
Feb 16. ROOMIES!
Feb 17. Sending snapchats to my brother
Feb 18. Chesapeake quesadilla for dinner at work
Feb 19. OOTD
Feb 20. Black coffee (I ran out of coffee creamer)
Feb 21. Chic fil a for dinner at work
I kind of enjoyed documenting something from each day, but I also totally forget to do stuff like that. I haven’t taken any pictures in March so I don’t see this trend continuing, but maybe in April it will make a comeback!
I’m back! Sorry for the week off, I usually take Sunday’s to write out my posts for the week, but last Sunday I was a struggle bus. I am lucky I got out of my bed to go to the bathroom. This marvelous Monday is going to span two weeks!
Marvelous is.. My birthday celebration! At work we get assigned buddies and my buddy is AWESOME! She threw me a birthday party with some work friends so my roommate and I attended that last Saturday night. It was fun to go out with different people. It was quite the interesting crowd and ended up being a really fun time.
Marvelous is… work slowing down. I will probably kick myself for saying this, but this past week at work was a lot slower than usual and we even got Saturday off! It was a nice treat. Which leads me to my next marvelous.
Marvelous is… Irish stroll. Yes St. Patricks day is in 15 days, but here in Baltimore it is an entire month long celebration. My roommate and I officially decided to attend the bar crawl in our neighbor hood Friday night. When I got home from work at 9pm we bought our tickets and started preparing ourselves for the next day. One of her friends from work came to our house and we all went together. There were a lot of people, but it was a good time. Sara’s friend had to leave to go to work and we decided to hit up the bar near our house. We decided we were hungry and made our last stop the Sip and Bite diner. While there some people from work texted and said they were coming to the neighborhood so we met up with them later at the same bar. It felt weird to be going back after we had left, but it had quieted down and was much more relaxed. I reallllly liked being able to walk back home instead of having to get in a cab.
Marvelous is… that buffalo chicken dip that I said I made a few weeks ago. It never got made, we ended up making it yesterday and it was worth the wait. IT IS SO GOOD!
Marvelous is.. Sushi Fridays at work (no meat on Fridays during lent) and then hitting up the bar that serves sushi down the road from our house yesterday for dinner. We have decided that the bar is our new place. SO close and very reasonably priced.
Marvelous is.. a great weekend with good people, props to being social!

You know how you sometimes have “one of those weeks?” Well I have been having one of those weeks for about a month now. Mostly in relation to work, my social life has been soaring (I mean anything more than before is soaring because it was nonexistent).
I know that I am still so new at work and everyday I learn something new and build on what I already know. That is part of the reason I enjoy work so much. But recently I have been working “non-core” at work. We have our core business which is most of the work we do and then the non-core, which a few people get to work on. I am fortunate enough that I get to work on this non-core work because it means I am learning even more. But sometimes I feel like it is all going right over my head. Or it goes in one ear and out the other, not intentionally at all, but I just feel like I can’t pick it up.
Last week I came home from work one day and told Sara that I know I worked on stuff all day, but I felt like I didn’t get anything accomplished. Nothing was going right and I was running into issues with everything I picked up. It just felt so defeating. I know I am not the only one going through this, but it just sucks sometimes.
I just keep waiting for that day when it all just clicks. Hopefully that day is soon!
I’m sticking with the Marvelous Monday trend here again this week except I’m going to throw in some not so marvelous things.
Marvelous is… spending time with friends on Saturday night.
Marvelous is… the snow melting.
Not so marvelous is… people being rude and anonymously harassing / sending things that are completely unnecessary. I’m not sure when people will learn that it always comes back to bite them in the butt. Nothing is anonymous in this world anymore, example one….three hundred views on my blog in one day.
Marvelous is… buffalo chicken dip. I’ve had the ingredients on hand for a while, but decided to finally make it on Sunday.
Marvelous is… I am getting WAY better at parallel parking, I even kind of enjoy it.
Not so marvelous is… finding out I need to get some work done on my transmission, I can’t catch a break.
Marvelous is… the countdown to my birthday (yes I’m vain…I’m over it).
Marvelous is… spending Sunday in bed reading, catching up on shows, and doing some laundry.
Things have been pretty marvelous around here for a while. I tend to feel like I have two really good days and then a day where nothing goes right. I just keep chugging alone hoping one day it won’t be like that.
