I was strolling through Indigo (Canada's version of Barnes & Noble) after a Starbucks date with a girlfriend because they always have the cutest accessories. I immediately fell in love with their laptop trays. I think they are so adorable but I'm not sure if Mike would love how girly they are for the living room. I ended up getting this little jewelry dish for my nightstand. To my fellow Canadian ladies, Indigo is killing it right now!
This week started out less than great. Monday morning I spilled my coffee all down my white shirt but somehow managed to clean it up. Then about an hour later, I spilled yogurt in the exact same spot. It was a hot mess. But really it wasn't that bad. Until I tried to make french macaroons on Tuesday. I bought all the ingredients on the weekend and was really excited to make them. I had read that they are the most difficult cookie to make but I was determined. I used this recipe and started as soon as I got home from work. Long story short, I screwed up. I added the eggs when I shouldn't have. SO I went back out to the store to get more ingredients. Restart! Still determined. And then I screwed up again. This time, I misread the amount of sugar needed and added 8 times more than the recipe said. I was supposed to have batter the consistency of molten lava, but instead had this.
Wednesday brought me another disaster moment. I went to drive home after work but my car wouldn't start. It's 12 years old so I honestly thought it was donezo ("my car is DONEZO!" Do you recognize that quote?) Turns out all I needed was a boost because the battery died. The only reason I can think of for this happening is maybe I didn't close the door all the way? The CAA guy came about an hour later and I was soon back in business.
I am hosting an off-site conference at work today and I have to admit I'm nervous. Public speaking does not come easily to me and I am always a nervous wreck. But I practiced a lot so I'm well prepared and really comfortable with the topic at hand. Wish me luck!!
Thank you for all the love on my post yesterday!! I worked really hard to make this video and the positive feedback made my heart happy! I was nervous to put it out in the blogosphere because it's far from perfect but I really hope to get better as I make more vacation videos. Our families loved watching it too which was my main objective.
I hope you have a very fabulous weekend! See you Monday!
