Nothing gold can stay, like love or lemonade

Today after an incredibly long week, our software upgrade at work was not hiccup free and lead to several late nights.  And three dinner-less ones.  J and I went to Poughkeepsie to the Galleria, for a bit of shopping.

This week broke me, by the end of my shift Friday I clocked over 60 hours.  Yes, I am well aware that there are many people who work that if not more, but I am a 40 hour a week gal, and going to bed super late is not fun for me.  There was a lot of stress, frustration, sweat and tears that went into this past week.  And I know that my mini vaca is just what the proverbial Doctor ordered.

So J surprised my with a drive to Poughkeepsie, for some light shopping.  I was very good and only purchased two new pairs of pants from Express (Tartan and Oxblood {they are calling Berry, but in person they look more Oxblood to me}).  I checked out Aldo, Macy’s, Loft, and Banana Republic all with no dice.  I feel like the best A/W collection is still J. Crew, although I’m glad I found the trousers because my A/W selection could use a bit more variety.  I was so very proud of my self that I did not go to Sephora and bought all of the things.  I already placed my order that replaced and stocked up on some things that I needed (more on this soon).

We then finished our excursion with lunch at Salsa.  It is a hole in the wall Mexican reataurant, and damn is it good!  I have never had a bad meal there.  My favourite thing on the menu, Chicken Fajita salad and a Cuervo Margarita is always good!  J had a Beef Burrito and a Cuervo Margarita.  It was the perfect end to our little adventure!  And on that note, it’s time to end.

All for now,
