Ramblings and the Week to Come 10NOV13

Real Life:
This was such a good week at work! I really made some good dents in my workload and was super busy Monday-Wednesday. I also wore some cute outfits, which was good for my morale. It's only going to get busier at work and I can't wait. We complete a ton of work in December, January, and February and I'll be able to do even more in my new position than I did last year.

Blogging:
This was a really hard week for me. For the most part, I didn't really love what I was reading and constantly found myself doing anything but reading or blogging. I did clean out my feedly though and am planning to be more on top of commenting in the week to come.

Sports:
A real heartbreaker this week! My softball team came *so* close to victory, eventually losing in the sixth inning 14-15. Worst was how the other team behaved throughout the game with several instances of what I consider unsportsmanlike conduct. We still have one more game this week with a high probability of making the playoffs the week after because the fifth team in the league always forfeits and there are supposed to be four teams for the playoffs.

My Obsession:
Some more pretties! It's a fun website called Baublebar which has all sorts of pretty jewelry options. I personally love their Monogram shop (I adore monograms and am thus coveting the Ella bangle, seen below) and they're celebrating November with 30 Days of Sparkle, discounting a different piece every day. I also like that they have free US shipping, which is always something I check out when doing online shopping. Does any one else like looking at pretty jewelry?

Week to Come:
Isn't She Lovely by Lauren Layne-a NA contemporary Pygmalion retelling
The Next Big Thing by Sadie Hayes-the sequel to the addictive NA The Social Code
The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney-female superhero; need I say more?
Pawn by Aimee Carter
Blogoversary post for Friday to mark FOUR years!
Dare by Becky Blalock-a book for career women, helping me get a jump start on my goal to read more business/leadership/career development books

    1. Yes, such a cliche! I'm super late but I did end up getting a similar bracelet for Christmas with just my first initial and I love looking at it so much :)

  2. I'm glad you had a great work week. I hope things get better with your reading and blogging this coming week and I hope your team makes it to the playoffs!

    I had a crazy week at work so blogging and reading took a backseat. I am looking forward to your thoughts on The Brokenhearted and happy 4th blogoversary!

    1. We did make it to the playoffs because the fifth team couldn't muster enough players. Still struggling to juggle reading and blogging-we'll see how this new year goes!

  7. I've been looking at etsy shops a lot lately. Maybe it's that time of year for just wanting to stare at the pretties?
    I agree that wearing some cute outfits makes a huge difference in morale! I work from home and in my jammies almost always, so when I go out, even to do the simplest things, I like to really dress up. I just don't go out real often...

    1. I love dressing up for work-for the next few weeks, I'm looking more at comfort but once it starts warming up again, I'm breaking out my dresses!
