Things That Make Me Happy #43-#44

#43: A Great Deal

I had my first client meeting at my new job yesterday, so that meant I had to go out and buy a suit. You’d think by now I would have a suit, but I don’t. I bought one from H & M last spring but managed to lose the pants (!) sometime in the last year. I didn’t wear a suit to my interview last fall, instead just opting for a business casual look. In any event, at my new job I’m required to be a little more conservative and professional, so I dragged my boyfriend to JC Penny’s over the weekend to buy something on the cheap. Not only did I find a suit that had pants with pockets (to people who use insulin pumps, pockets on business wear is a GODSEND), I also bought a pair of pants, a cute top and a purple coat that was 80% off!


Edit: I forgot to mention the really cool part! All of that was $150!!!!

#44: A Clean Room

On Sunday, I had some time to myself in the afternoon, so I decided it was time to tackle the disaster area that was my room. I have never been a clean, organized person, but after a few days, there’s only so much I can handle. Not only that, but living in Manhattan means I have a fairly small room, and a messy room means it feels even smaller. Getting the crap out meant that my room feels ten times bigger, I know where everything is, and I am not constantly having receipts and test strips stuck to the bottom of my feet!

    YAY for the great deal! Yesterday I bought my first blazer (I figure it’d be a good thing to try and make me look a bit older when I’m teaching workshops, since most of my students are twice my age and I still look like an 18 yr old) so I’m wearing it this morning – feels a little strange dressing up so much 🙂

    I’m with you the cleaning up front – I’ve really got to tackle my bedroom this weekend, and once it gets warmer, our mud room – it’s a total disaster right now!!

    Oh my God! I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets test strips stuck to her feet whilst walking around! 😛
