February Photo a Day: Money

Thanks to a fortunate turn of events, I’ve managed to combine yesterday’s topic (something you ate) with today’s topic (money), resulting in one glorious photo.

The ten dollar bill you see here is the money I saved by being the lucky recipient of a free lunch at Chipotle today!

This particular location (Grand & State) is always crazy-busy, and apparently the nice people who work there like to challenge themselves (or maybe they’re just bored). Anyway, they randomly picked me at the end of the line and said that if I made it to the counter in less than 7 minutes, my food would be free. It was like winning the lottery!

Unfortunately, it took 8 minutes for me to get to the counter. But… they gave me a free lunch anyway! Love those guys!

By the way, I know my burrito bowl looks all green and gross in the picture, but I assure you – it was delicious. I just love me some guac.

February Photo a Day: Bathroom edition

Once again, I’m playing catch-up with this photo challenge. Lucky for you (or not), both photos I’m posting today take place in my bathroom!

Yesterday’s photo: Inside your bathroom cabinet

Ok fine, this is not my bathroom cabinet.  I thought I would spare you because my bathroom cabinet is gross. And it’s not the stuff in it that’s gross, it the actual cabinet. I think it’s from around 1972. Let’s just say that with this apartment, we’re paying for the location (which is great!).

Today’s photo: Green

Bathroom towels! Pretty self-explanatory.

February Photo a Day: Where you work

This is a view of the agency where I work from inside my office.

One of the perks of working at an ad agency is that people roll in pretty much whenever they want in the morning. The place was still a ghost town at 10 am.

Check out these other ad agency perks. Jealous? 🙂

P.S. This was actually supposed to be yesterday’s photo. Today’s photo is “my shoes,” but since we’re supposed to get rain/snow today, I wore my Hunter boots, which I’ve already proudly displayed for you here and here. Wouldn’t want you to get sick of them!

February Photo a Day: Time

STOP! Tribune Tower Time.

Sorry, that was super lame.

But I’ll tell you something about time – right before the beginning of a long weekend, it starts moving at a snail’s pace. A snail with a lead shell. On tranquilizers. Stuck in quicksand.

Kill me.

**Correction: That’s the Wrigley Building, not the Tribune Tower. And I call myself a Chicagoan…

February Photo a Day: Something new

My new Hunter boots!

This is what they look like while waiting for the bus in the morning. Fabulous.

If you’re wondering why there was no photo yesterday, it’s because the challenge was “phone.” I take all my photos with my phone, so that in itself presented a problem. And I’m pretty sure you don’t care to see a picture of my work phone. So I skipped it.

February Photo a Day: Heart

Today’s photo challenge is quite appropriate since it is, in fact, Valentine’s Day. Or as Will likes to call it, Tuesday.

But just because my husband hates all days of the year in which he is expected to put forth any extra degree of thoughtfulness and effort (don’t worry, he has many other redeeming qualities – THANK GOD), that doesn’t mean that I have to completely ignore the holiday.

So in honor of VD (Valentine’s Day, that is), I surprised Will with heart-shaped Dunkin’ Donuts and coffee this morning. And I’m wearing my red jeans. Because if you happen to be the owner of bright red pants, how can you not wear them on Valentine’s Day?
