Arkadaslarim, Teksas'a sonbahar geldi!

Woooohoooo, my friends, autumn has finally come to Texas! Oh, today is a glorious day with the crisp wind blowing, oh it is simply marvelous. A wonderful day all around really. It began with me hitting the snooze at least three times, which not that I wanted to get up even then at 6:40 a.m., but it was only because I had a great time catching up with two girlfriends last night till after midnight which was so good. So, it kind of made it worth it that I was so tired this morning. Then, thankfully I figured out something to wear that didn't need to be ironed and didn't require a lot of thinking. One of those blessed days when the very first outfit you try works perfectly. Somedays you try three different options and it's still not perfect, other days after several tries you finally reach perfection, and 90% of the days you don't really feel cute, but you've got to get to work anyways and really, who else cares? But, alas today was an easy one. Feeling cute definitely helps the day start out right. Oh, and since it's FALL, I'm wearing my boots which also makes me happy. This is especially so since we have dubbed Thursdays as Western Thursdays. I really think I should get a prize today for wearing my boots.

Let's see what else, so it's been an enjoyable day in the office with not too much craziness going on. One of those days where it's such a joy to work with so many friends! For lunch several of us went to Olive Garden where I had soup, salad, and breadsticks and we talked about boys. That's always a good time (honestly, it's not always a good time, but today it was.) And now I'm back in the office and avoiding work by updating my blog. And...tonight I have no plans, no where to be, no agenda and that makes me very very happy. Sometimes I just love to be home w/my pooch and get to bed early. Boring, I know, but sometimes I'm just a homebody.
Oh, and while this is not on the topic of today, I must tell you about last weekend. To show my sister how thankful I am that she was born, I planned a surprise Tea Party just for us and then tickets to an amazing dance performance downtown. (Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is AMAZING!) Wow, we had so much fun. Everything was perfect. Especially the scones and clotted cream, and let's not forget the tea sandwiches in leaf shapes. Oh, and cheese crisps and spinach artichoke bruschetta and pumpkin cake and did I forget to mention the tea?
