Yay weekend! It’s going to be a fun one! My sister is coming down tomorrow and we’re doing a double sisters weekend with our friends from home. Brunch, shopping, and a night out in Boystown. Hope you guys have a fun one too!

As I mentioned in my last post, we had a bit of a surprise when we came home last Friday. We discovered we have mice.

I’ll spare you the details, but this week can best be described as follows…

My initial reaction:

The exterminator (finally) came yesterday, so hopefully this will all be over soon.

Well, so much for my “be a better blogger” resolution. However, I have a somewhat legit reason for not posting Friday links yesterday. My plan was to post them once I got home from work, but Tyler and I went to see Lincoln (so good) and when we got home, discovered something that had me screaming like the girl that I am, standing on our dining room table and taking an 11pm trip to Walgreens. More on that later…

This weekend is the first since we’ve moved to Chicago that we have nothing planned, and I am so looking forward to it. I have a book to finish, sleeping in to do, and most importantly – cold weather to avoid! Have a great weekend.

2013 | better

3 Jan


2012 was a great year.

One MBA, a cross-country road trip, 2 months living with my parents, and 3 new jobs later…we’ve made it to 2013.

My resolutions for the year can basically be summed up in one word: better.

I resolve to be:

  • a better blogger. I’m going to blog 2-3 times a week. No more month-long silences!
  • a better friend. I will send birthday cards/gifts. On time.
  • a better fiancee/wife. More listening. More hugs. I want make the most of our soon-to-be-newlywed status.
  • a better Whitney. Work out regularly. Sit up straight. Watch my language.

Cheers you guys!
