Yay for Friday! Did anyone else think this week seemed extra long? In all actuality it was, because for a lot of us, it was the first full week back at work since the holidays! Things are gearing up for me at work, so I am happy to have the long weekend to look forward to.
This Wednesday, I went to a lunch event at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. It was so neat! I absolutely love old buildings, and this one is gorgeous. The lobby was amazing - marble everywhere, and the most gorgeous ceilings and chandeliers. The lunch was basically a networking event, with a presentation from one of the Fed's economists. It was nice meeting other people in my profession, as well as a few others outside of what I do. The presentation was very interesting - an economists look at the global and U.S. economy, with a bit of local color sprinkled within. It didn't hurt that the food was delicious, too. Definitely the highlight of my week!
My Lilly items came in the mail this week and everything fits! I was a bit nervous, just because there is a no return policy with the sale, but they are perfect. Now we just need spring to come so I can start wearing them!
I made Andrea's Pulled Pork yesterday, and it really never disappoints. If you are a pulled pork fan, you need to make this recipe. It's ridiculously easy, and is the perfect thing to come home to after a long day at work. One of my favorite ways to serve it is over rice with some shredded monterey jack cheese on top...yum!
With it being the first of the year, so many people are posting about their goals and resolutions. I have come to realize that these are some of my favorite types of posts. I find it really interesting to see what everyone is working on for the year. It helps motivate me to stick with my resolutions, as well as provides some food for thought on new things I can work on.
An ice storm is heading our way this morning / afternoon and will be sticking around through Saturday. I decided to prepare myself for the possibility of being stuck inside for 2 days and headed to the grocery store earlier this week to stock up on my groceries, and made trip to the library to get some good reading material. I am ready to go if it really does hit us like they are saying, not to mention, my weekend meal planning and grocery shopping is already done and out of the way. More time to read and relax.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Linking up with Andrea, April, and Katie.
