Friday Free-For-All – 10/20/17

We’re off to Toronto! Both Ben and I are off from work, and we’re headed to Toronto for a long weekend. This is our first “just us” trip pretty much since we’ve been together, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’re driving there and back, which is a long trip, but with music and snacks, it should be great. We’re no strangers to long car rides together. We’ve got some ideas of what we’d like to do, but no firm itinerary. Mostly, our priority is just to spend time together. Stay tuned for a recap next week!

House hunting has stalled a bit. The combination of our realtor being out of town plus the market starting to slow down has meant that we didn’t see any houses this week. Booooo. It’s disappointing and frustrating, but unfortunately there’s not much we can do about it. Hopefully when Jill is back in town next week we’ll get back into the swing of things.

Halloween is coming and I haven’t a thing to wear. I feel like I’m in this predicament every year. Halloween always sneaks up on me and I end up wearing some really lame, thrown together thing. Of course, we haven’t even been invited to any parties yet, so it doesn’t really matter that much, but it’s the principal of the thing. I love Halloween, and aspire to be one of those people who always has a kickass costume. *sigh* Maybe someday…

I was reminded this week how freaking delicious chai tea is. My coworker gave me a tea bag and I added some honey and a bit of milk and OMG HEAVEN. Honestly, it was the best thing I’ve drank in ages. So you best believe I went out and bought myself some and it will be my afternoon drink of choice from now on.

TARGET IS COMING TO VERMONT. You guys, I don’t have enough words to express how exciting this is. For years, I have been living in a Target desert. Litereally, Vermont is the only state in the US that doesn’t have one. The closest one was an hour and a half plus a ferry ride away in upstate NY. Now there will be one within striking distance of my office. SQUEEEEEEEEEE.

Are you Target-obsessed like me?

    I couldn’t believe that Vermont didn’t have ANY Target stores yet … what are you people, savages!?!? πŸ˜€

    It is definitely tea season – we have a nice box of Chai, and also a bunch we brought back from London with us (I try to use sparingly). I love a cup of tea in the evenings!

    We just canceled on a local Halloween party (at a country club, not anyone we knew) … we thought it was next weekend, didn’t have costumes, and with feedings of kittens every 3 hours we are just too damn exhausted to even try at this point πŸ™‚

    Enjoy the trip – looks like a long drive (used Maps to check if it was through NY or Canada for you) … but it can be loads of fun. You know I love ‘just us’ time with Lisa, so hoping to hear tales of your awesome trip!

      Oh man, I am loving the photos of kittens! Kudos to you and Lisa for taking on such a demanding project. On behalf of myself and kitty-lovers everywhere, THANK YOU!

      Our trip was wonderful, and exhausting. LOTS of driving. Ugh. Back to the real world now, boo!

    YAY TARGET!! Do they have Target in Alaska and Hawaii, I wonder?? Last year I got to take 4 ladies from Denmark to their first ever trip to Target and it was amazing. It was so much fun to see them go crazy over everything!! Halloween usually sneaks up on me too. I never get an outfit unless I need one, but still. Always last minute. Usually always lame. bah!!! I need to do better too lol

    • Rae says:

      Well, if VT was the last state not to have one, we must assume that Hawaii and Alaska already have them. Unless they were talking about the contiguous United States? Who knows. Either way I’m PUMPED!

    Enjoy Toronto! I’ve been there for a day… I wish I had been able to stay longer and see more! And hooray for Target!!! I’ve always loved it, but I have a special appreciation for it these days for its adorable line of baby clothes and as a destination with the Bairn on weekday mornings πŸ™‚
