I'm off work today for President's Day. I haven't gotten this holiday off since I was in school, and only do this year because we didn't get New Year's as a holiday (since my job kind of involves the stock market being open, the company couldn't close down for New Year's because it fell on a weekend, and thus, the market didn't close). I went grocery shopping, but have otherwise spent the day watching TV and playing Words with Friends. I'd feel bad about the laziness if I didn't have a ton of work waiting for me tomorrow, and pretty much until the end of March.
This is what I wore to go out for dinner with Fella's family last night. We went to Two Brothers, a brewery and tap-house in suburban Warrenville. If you're in the area, I highly recommend it. The food was fantastic, and of course the beer is tasty.
I hinted in Friday's post that there's some excitement brewing here at TCC Midwest. I'm not one to jinx things, so I've kept it pretty quiet, but now that it's a little more official, I can share. Fella and I have decided to buy a home! We started looking last week, and were pre-approved for a loan on Friday. We're hoping to stay in our neighborhood, but another option within our price range might be in nearby Evanston. It's a big decision and a little scary, but I've been renting for 7 years, am at a financially stable place and am almost 30, so it seems like a decent time to buy property. We're going to look at some more condos and houses on Saturday and hopefully we'll find something that works for us sometime soon.
