ONE SHORT DAY

This was the MOST FUN I have had blogging in a long time! This post is a reflection of a day in the life of me. I was originally worried that my day wouldn't have anything worth reporting. I mean, I work a normal, computery, 9-5 job... that isn't always the most exciting.
 
However, what I found by doing this exercise was that beauty is all around me - it's in every moment of my life. Even at the auto body shop!
 
"What does an average Wednesday look like for Maureen?" you wonder.
 
Well wonder no more...
 

Woke up at 7am to a GORGEOUS view out of my bedroom window.

Took my car to the shop at 8am because Advanced Towing put a giant scratch in it and is refusing to pay. Rude!
 
Settled myself at my desk around 9, finished my coffee, and dug into the day.

I can only take so many pictures of my desk... but this was my life from 9am-6pm.
 
Lunch. At my desk. Mostly gross looking but kind of ok tasting. This is what happens when you grab a frozen meal because you don't have time to grocery shop (read: you have time but you are too lazy).

Still at work. But I have this beautiful passage on my desk to remind me that I'm in the right place.
 
This was absolutely as good as it looks! My boss made a batch of cookies which was the best part of my afternoon!

I love living in D.C.
 
Heading out after a day of work. I swear, every day leaving the office and stepping into the sunshine feels like the Shawshank Redemption.
 
Read a bit of my current book club book while waiting for Stephanie at a 6:15 dinner.
 
BLOGGER MEET-UP! I was delighted to finally meet Stephanie in person. She is such a doll and I can't wait to follow her adventures to St. Louis and then force her to take me dancing with her friends when she comes back to D.C.

We had dinner at BTS in Foggy Bottom. Holy moly was this burger amazing! I ate the entire thing. And then proceeded to moan that I was too full for the rest of the night.
 
Also, Burger Tap Shake makes it's own onion rings. Seriously. Go there. Now.
Picking up my car. :)
 
Finally home around 8pm and these babies are making my apartment smell like heaven.

I love when the days are long and I get to enjoy the sun in the morning and in the evening!

Wine and nails and the TV. Yep. I was a happy girl.

Red for hot summer nights. I'm ready!
 
I schmeeped over to Josh's around 9:30, made him hug me a lot, talked to him while he finished up in the kitchen, helped him with his monologue for tomorrow, and then promptly fell asleep on top of his comforter while he worked at his computer for several more hours. You know, just the usual. :)
