Polka Dots!

Happy Hump Day!  
My third favorite day besides Friday and Pay Day!!

I went to spin class last night. I'm officially hooked! I can't believe how fast that hour goes by and how much of a work out my whole body is getting. I haven't been to the same class yet, but I really enjoyed last nights instructor. She had good music, turned off the lights and the class really got into it.


I had a mini shopping spree over my lunch break because I think I'm one of few people whose pay checks actually went up in 2013. Tricky, tricky company giving us raises to start at the new year.

I had been going back and forth on what I want to spend my bonus on and I'm just not ready to blow part of it on a watch. Especially since I couldn't really decide which one I wanted. So I hit op Target Boutique and picked up this little diddy for a mere $18.


It doesn't say Michael Kors as I had originally wanted, but it's still pretty (I'm getting a new Michael Kors bag instead)!!

On a mission to find new work shoes, I sprinted meandered over to Marshall's. Their shoe department was completely depleted of any shoe that you could actually wear in a business environment. I can't have studs and 6 inch platform heels. So, to the clothes I went. 

I picked up a new workout top that's bright and fun and actually makes me look somewhat tan in the middle of MN winter. And I got this lovely blouse!


It's more pink/coral than this coral/orange. I've been wanting to 'cute' up my wardrobe and add more color and this piece is putting me in the right direction.

Random topic here. My sister sent me this article about 'The End of Courtship' and how 'dating' is different these days. It made me think about a couple things. I was on Match on and off for a while and my subscription just ended. I didn't really spend much time 'searching' for dates, because I didn't have time, and quite frankly, I didn't want to give up a workout or get all dolled up to go out into the cold and snow to spend an hour or two having drinks with someone who I won't hear from again.

How on earth do people meet outside of the dating sites and at bars? How do you get that second, third and fourth date? Ugh, it's so frustrating! 

I was asked out by two different guys this week and when they asked what my schedule looked like I said I was pretty busy. You'd think I'd have real plans. With real people. Nope. Monday, Bachelor. Tuesday, spin class. Thursday, step class. Maybe I should re-prioritize? I think I've been on enough dates in the past year to expect that it's a one and done deal. I won't hear from them again even when I think it's going good and they seem interested.

I guess in hind-sight, I'm happy where I am in my life. I'm the healthiest I've been in a very long time. I have a job I don't hate going to. My social life is picking up and all in all, life is just good. Do I need a man? No. Would I like one? It would be nice!
