So That Happened

So this weekend was freaking amazing. Packed to the brim I was hardly home. Ordinarily, that's not my thing, but this was a nice break from Netflix and PJs.

Saturday I ran a few errands and then met up with Jenn, Alyssa, and Dani for some arts and crafts followed by dinner. We went to Doin' Dishes where you select a piece of pottery and decorate to your hearts content. They then fire it in the kiln and a week later you pick up your piece. 

As soon as I looked at the wall of options the pineapple jumped out at me. I immediately started second guessing myself how does one paint a pineapple? but after some more thought, and some nudging from Alyssa realized that "everyone needs a pineapple in their life". 

After we walked over to Casa Piquin for some delicious Mexican food. I'm absolutely in love with this restaurant. For starters, it's underground and has an outside patio look and that's always a plus for me. Secondly, they have Elotes which is also known as Mexican Street Corn. It's fucking delicious. Third, and the trifecta maker in my opinion, they have fried ice cream!!! I haven't had fried ice cream in like... 13 years. 13 sad, lonely years. If you've never had it, find your nearest authentic Mexican restaurant and go order it. 

Perfectly delicious perfection
On Sunday, I had an even busier day. I was up and out of the house by 7:45 to head into the city for the Business Magic Live conference. Powerhouse women gathered together to discuss branding, blogging, and badassery. It was a seriously magical day.

I was able to meet and talk to Amanda Frances, which was awesome because I'm taking her Money Mentality Makeover course right now. I connected with Kimra Luna, Cara from The Champagne Diet, and Lisa Steadman, whose energy is absolutely infectious. And I was able to listen to and meet Gala Darling, which was a mini fangirl moment. I even had her sign my book.

I left feeling so inspired, uplifted, and encouraged. Over the last year, I've been struggling with what my purpose is. I work the typical Monday through Friday 9-5 office gig, and although the stability is nice and the benefits are good, it's not what I want to be doing. It doesn't light me up or excite me at all. More often than that I feel as though I'm simply watching the dates fall off the calendar. Speeding by in a blaze without me having any positive feelings about how my days are being spent.

To me, the day was one giant challenge. A challenge to find what I want to do, what I'm meant to create the life I want to live...and start doing/living/being what I want.

I accept.
