Post-vacation aftermath & nights out with friends

The first week post-vacation is always a little hectic. I wasn’t as productive as I would’ve liked and I couldn’t get into a routine all week.ย However, fun nights with friends were much needed distractions!

This week I’m focusing on getting caught up with things around the apartment that fell by the wayside during our vacation and also decluttering and reorganizing. I’m also starting a new workout program (#PiYo) this week which I am so excited about. I’m on the hunt for a new planner (though Mike keeps telling me I don’t need one, which he’s probably right but I just love planners LOL) – I need one huge planner for all areas of my life (I currently have 3 – ridiculous). I want one that has a separate page for each day (aka a daily planner). Of course, the Whitney English Day Designer isย sold out so I don’t know what else is out there.

Anyways, back to this past week/weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ Thursday night was girls night with 2 of my best friends (Dawn and Katie), we went downtown to East 4th and stopped by Lola for wine and Chocolate Bar for snacks and martinis. We had a lot of fun catching up, and Dawn & I loved Katie’s outfit – she’s always so stylish. I’m so glad Katie lives in Northeast Ohio now and hopefully nights like this will happen much more often.

Saturday night was another night out at East 4th downtown. Mike & I met up with Dawn and a few of our sorority sisters/Kent friends and her boyfriend & his Kappa Sigma fraternity brothers. The night also served as Dawn’s unofficial housewarming party for her (not-so) new apartment above Flannery’s in East 4th.
