A honeycrisp apple and a banana. Mr.DJW and I have gotten into a good habit of packing our lunches for work. In addition to our traveler’s mug of Starbucks coffee (black), we each try to eat an apple and a banana a day. I was never into eating breakfast before school or work, so it took some adjustment, but now I simply can’t live without my mid-morning FRUIT snacks .
1.) Today is the start of a long 4-day weekend! Mr.DJW works at a bank and gets random holidays like “Columbus Day,” off of work. Since his 30th birthday is coming up, we decided to make it a long staycation weekend. We are going to going to ride bikes with our dogs and eat picnic-style at the local state park, go apple-picking at the best apple orchard in MI (Blake’s), and visit the scary farm a few miles north of us to enjoy all of the Halloween festivities: Hay rides, corn mazes, and haunted houses! To top it off, we are going to the Detroit Lions’ Monday Night Football game at Ford Field. It’s the first time they’ve had a 4-0 record in Mr.DJW’s lifetime and the first time (I think) they’ve played on Monday night in Mr.DJW’s lifetime. [Please don't ask me the insane price I paid for the tickets.]
2.) Today is more than just TGIF for me. I was officially promoted to the global proposal consultant position and my raise/incentives are making me smile like this today: . Best part is that I am still with my team, just reporting directly to our team director and being compensated for my OCD, A-type production/quality work!
3.) We are officially nearing BABY2012. As in, Mr. DJW & I are going to TTC at the start of the year. Apologies in advanced, if I go overboard on talking all things baby, but that’s what will most likely be relevant in my life in the upcoming year.
4.) I AM SO EXCITED FOR HALLOWEEN. Mr.DJW & I bought clearance costumes after Halloween last year. I don’t really like mine and might buy a replacement, but Mr.DJW likes both of his options. (SCORE $5 Halloween costumes!)
5.) Guns N’ Roses are coming to concert in the D on December 1st. Mr.DJW really wants to go. I think it’ll be a fun time. But, it’s on a Thursday night, a “school” night. I think we’re going to go anyway. PARTY ON
