Awkward and Awesome

Awkward:

  1.  The non-stop “how are you holding up?” questions from my co-workers now that my boss has left. I appreciate that they care, but I’m not a widow in mourning…my wardrobe is far too brightly colored for that.
  2. Walking out of the subway this morning to witness a guy peeing on the side of a building. No. Words.
  3. Getting into a conversation with my favorite awkward co-worker about bare legs vs. panty hose. When I suggested that bare legs were acceptable, I got a look that suggested I was a heathen.

Awesome:

  1. My new obsession with Nurse Jackie.
  2. Getting a gym membership reimbursement check for $150 from my health insurance provider.
  3. Upcoming three day beach weekend…pretty much what’s gotten me through the week.

Awkward:

  1. Getting told by someone I work with that New Orleans is a sticky mess…not sure which kind of sticky he was referring to.
  2. Trying to transition into new roles in relationships. It is soooo weird to try not to care about certain things, but then care so much about others.
  3. Accidentally being placed in a smoking hotel room, getting into the room which REEKED, and then just layind down and dying laughing that this was my life. It had been a day.

Awesome:

  1. This amazing 6-day road trip I’m on with Colin! New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. Awesome.
  2. My boss offering to pay for one of our meals while on this road trip. I’m so lucky-quite the job and quite the boss.
  3. Summer is finally here at long last. Time for flowy skirts and shorts. So happpppppy.

They may not always live in the same city, but the people you love (and who love you) will always have a reason to come back. Always.

XOXO, Chantelle

It’s been an absolutely crazy week at work and tomorrow my boss is leaving for a new job… But in all of the stressful chaos, these truths bring me comfort: I am good at what I do, and I have people around me that believe me.

And knowing that, I know that everything is going to be absolutely fine.

Colin’s last week in Colorado has been so crazy busy. We’ve tried to fit in as many adventures as possible, including horseback riding in Estes Park!

The one perk of flying into Boston at 5am is that I am awake for the sunrise… and it doesn’t get much better than that.

So…I know I’m completely ruining my coolness factor by saying that I was JUST YESTERDAY introduced to the instant messaging/texting/photo sharing app, SnapChat.  But I don’t even care.  It’s that awesome. So freaking fun and addicting.  So what if I only have one friend on it–this is just the beginning ;-) KATE–get.on.accepting.my.request.  Our communication will never be the same!

XOXO, Chantelle

Saw this journal at one of my favorite places to buy things that I don’t need, Paper Source. But in the case of a journal that encourages people to do good, I’m gonna say I actually need it:)

P.S. Chantelle,
As you know, I tend to be a bit of an old curmudgeon when it comes to new social media, so expect my acceptance to the snap chat invite sometime around 2020.

…Kids these days.

Tuesday Thoughts.

Hello pretties! We may be a day late, but we’re never a dollar short! So without further ado, here are this week’s Tuesday Thoughts:

So…I kinda cheated because my quote is actually just lyrics to Sara Bareilles’ new song “Brave”–which I am currently OBSESSED with. As I come up on the cusp of some pretty big changes in my life, I’m trying to focus on being brave, finding new adventures, and living life to the fullest. I hope I can!

XOXO, Chantelle

There is nothing more exhausting or futile than trying to fight yourself.  And I’m finally realizing that I’m ready to lay down the gloves and embrace who I am. This is my hope for myself ,for you, and for everyone.

Until next time,

Kate
