3 exciting things on my mind today

1. In just 3 hours, I will be attending my Stitch Fix training downtown! I believe it's me + 23 other stylists and we were told to bring our laptops and a charger so we can all learn how to use the platform together. My only problem? I don't have a laptop bag. :/ I've always just used my big ol' black backpack when going traveling with my laptop. But I can't be the new girl who brings her laptop in a BACKPACK!!!!! How "un-stylish" of me that would be. I can't have them questioning their decision to hire me! But I also didn't want to go out and buy a new $75 laptop bag to fit my monstrous 17" laptop when chances are I'd mostly be working from home, anyway. SO - I got creative (and when I say "I", I really mean Verner) and found a blue vertical-ish tote purse thing I had in the closet and it fits the laptop pretty perfectly (thanks, Boo). And that will have to do. Wish me luck.

2. Tomorrow my brother, (7 month pregnant)sister-in-law, and niece are coming to San Francisco to see me and Verner for the weekend! I'm super excited because we have this glorious food tour planned, where basically we will just eat our way through the city, getting an entree or two at each place and sharing it all. Now we'll get to try all of these amazing places in one day without breaking the bank!

My stretchy pants and tennis shoes are ready.

I should also note that I am excited to see my little niece again, but I am willing to bet that SHE is more excited to see VERNER than me.

Allow me to elaborate.

This is Melody when she's around Verner:

Case in point.

3. Today, The Dizzle and I deliberately got dressed and deliberately walked to Union Street so that we could deliberately go to a jewelry store we found. We then spent the next hour trying on rings. He even tried on men's wedding bands.

Did you hear that??? We were trying on RINGS! Like REAL. LIVE. RINGS.

I must have been in a state of shock, because I was surprisingly very calm during the experience. But now that I look back and see what just went down, I really want to just scream and dance around like a loony bin.

Deep breath, Michelle. :)

    1. I think you CAN, actually! There's a place for you to put notes to the stylist and if you request me, then the stylist that gets you can "reassign" you to me :)

  8. Holy crap! Did that one in the front say $24,000???? That's like more than the price of everything I own! haha. I'd be too scared to wear that outside. Or inside, for that matter. Exciting!

    1. I KNOW. I couldn't even believe I had that much worth just sitting on my finger in the store. It's kind of ridiculous.

  9. Gah! Wish I lived in San Fran so I could do the Stitch Fix stylist thing! That just looks like the most amazing job ever.

  11. I love EVERYTHING about this post! First off, that job sounds amaaazeballs. If I had any idea how to dress myself, I'd love to attempt to pick clothes for other people, haha. But I am beyond happy for your new adventure with Stitchfix! Have SO much fun with your family this weekend. It sounds like it's going to be a blast considering you will be eating all day! :)

    And lastly, I am beyond jealous that you went ring browsing!!! That is something I want to do, but I don't wanna push the boyfriend at all. So so happy for all your exciting adventures! :)
