I had a meeting this afternoon. Post-meeting: a planned happy hour.
I hemmed and hawed about this. Because, really, happy hours are not in the budget right now. But…I hadn’t been “out” in a while. Resigned to feeling sorta guilty about the money aspect, I accepted anyway.
Then, on my walk from meeting to bar? I stumbled upon a ten-dollar bill on the sidewalk! I snapped that baby up. There was my happy hour. Pretty much paid for. Hah! Shelby: 1. Budget: 0.
Karma. Sometimes it rewards you for being good. And sometimes it covers your ass when you’re being just a little bit bad.
Today’s EAT: The hubs is home tonight! Hooray!
You might think I’d cook him a nice dinner to welcome him back? Well, you thought wrong. We got takeout.
Y’all might recognize this Banh Mi sandwich and summer rolls from Baoguette from my post a couple of weeks ago. What can I say – I’m a creature of habit? And I can’t get enough of Vietnamese food. Not even when I spent three weeks traveling there last summer!
Sea kayaking in Halong Bay.
And hubs and I waiting out an epic rainstorm at a bar in Hanoi. Vietnam. LOVE. When can I go back?
Anyway. Tonight I split the Banh Mi and summer roll with the hubs and added some “Vietnamese corn,” which was so delicious. Really, how can you go wrong with chargrilled corn, heavily spiced and flavored?
Today’s DRINK: Hubster picked up some wine while I picked up food. He seems to be on a Rose kick lately – this is what we had!
It’s pretty good! Standard pink wine. Not sure if it’s substantially any better than other inexpensive pinks, but it’s enjoyable enough!
Today’s RUN: None – day off! (Sigh of pleasure.)
Today’s QUESTION: Karma – do you believe in it? I don’t, really. But I think it’s funny and ironic when things work out like they did today! 🙂
