Just some thoughts for Hump Day

Hi pretties.

Do y’all know how wonderful cookies from the Doubletree Hotel are? 

Brandon and I stayed in a Doubletree Suite when we went to NYC.  They gave us cookies when we checked in (I got both since Brandon doesn’t eat sweets!).  

Seriously, they are the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. 

Well …  the Doubletree of Charleston brought a tin of their cookies to my office today! 

I may or may not have snuck two out of the tin.

I may or may not be eating the second one right now.

At least I went to the gym on my lunch break! 

You can find the recipe for the delicious cookies here.

(They have oats, chocolate chips, walnuts, and even lemon juice in them!)


I am still at a loss of creative ideas to decorate my office.  

Look at these dreamy office-spaces!

It has been SO hot here since Sunday.

Hello, blistering heat! 

Somehow, I’m still freezing in my office & have had the space heater blowing on my feet throughout the day.  


Tonight, I plan on relaxing on the sofa while catching up on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette.  

Did I miss any drama??  I’m honestly not too into this season (since Bentley left, at least) but I still plan on watching every week!  

Until next time!

    I love Doubletree cookies! We always stay at their hotel in Pennsylvania and their cookies are amazing!
    How do you go to the gym on your lunch break? I theoretically could (my gym is only a block away from work) but I don't like the thought of having to shower mid-day. Do you just do less intense exercises? Or do you shower? Or are you just one of those lucky mythical girls who don't sweat? 😉

    This episode was actually pretty boring. Bentley comes back next week even though last weeks promos made it seem like his return would be on this weeks episode. Ashley's super insecure and still totally hung up on him!

    Oh, and I think I'm the only person in the history of Doubletree stayers that doesn't like their cookies. Bryan loves them, so lucky for him he gets 2 – his and mine 🙂

    Love love love the teal and white office… so clean and chic, yet functionable!

    UM YEAH! Doubletree cookies are the bomb.com
    I almost died when I tried them!

    Also love the office pics 🙂 I think I will use one of those as my inspiration for our second bedroom/office!

    much love xoxo

    I am SO over this heat. Does this mean July and August will be unbearable? 🙁 Guess I'll be spending all of my time that I'm not in the office on the beach or IN the ocean. 🙂

    Bachelorette is pretty good…next week will be even better though. Can't wait for Bentley to come back!

    I'm not into this season either. and I am like the biggest Bachelor/ette fan ever… I don't like Ashley and this whole Bentley mess is really not interesting like ABC thinks it is. I don't even like any of the dudes… ready for next season already!

    I am obsessed with that teal office!! trumps mine outta the water haha! Can't wait to see your office once you get pics up!

    i almost always have my spaceheater on in my office during the summer! they over-air condition buildings too much!

    OMG. I want to decorate my desk now. I am having serious desk-envy!!!!

    Totally agree with Seashells and Southern Belles on this season of the Bachelorette. Ashley is insecure and annoying and none of the guys seem truly into her. It's just not interesting. It also annoys me how ABC is obviously trying to just create drama with Bentley.

    OK, double tree cookies are MY FAVE! lol I recently stayed there in South Beach – the cookies never disappoint!

    & I LOVE that purple desk chair 🙂

    Mmm those cookies look amazing! And I totally wish I had a workspace like the ones you posted! Ugh, my desk is so small its so hard to decorate it! As you find cute things to decorate with, keep posting….I liked your monogrammed ideas from before!

    they are delicious! i was at the office today and we noticed that they magically appeared at the front of our building. we never heard anyone come in and drop them off… but we sure ate the heck out of them. plus, they were still warm. yummy!
