Lupin Update

It's officially been a month since I adopted Lupin and let me tell you, it has been the most stressful but fantastic month of my life. The first few days I had him he had the most heart breaking separation anxiety when he couldn't see me. He would howl and cry until he wore himself out. Once he got settled in and the howling stopped he was terrified to be outside. For 5 days he would run outside for the bathroom and then run back in. He was miserable being cooped up but was terrified to be outside. Nothing I did worked until finally I put him on anti-anxiety medication. It's been an uphill struggle but it's finally evened out. He's become the buddy I wanted when I adopted him and I love spending as much time with him as I can. 

Also, as fate would have it, Lupin's sister Stella lives on the same street as us. They had their first puppy play-date this weekend. They chased each other around and quickly decided they would be best friends.

Lupin has officially taken over my instagram so if you'd like to see his daily adventures, check him out:

When The Moon Hits Your Eye . . .

For the last five years, my mom and I have had a girls weekend for her birthday. Shopping, movies and lots and lots of eating. It's the best. 
Around Christmas this year, my boss took us all to Quartino for lunch and I fell in love with it. The food is incredible and the restaurant feels like one straight off the side streets of Italy. 

Being happily filled (you know, content but not to the point where you feel like you'll explode) we spent hours on hours shopping. When the sun went down and our arms couldn't carry any more bags, we headed over to Eatly for Italian meal part two. 

A wonderful day, full of wonderful food with my very favorite Partner in Crime.

Coq d'Or

Finally the dreaded day came when Allie had to leave. With big hugs we held back the tears as we said goodbye in favor of promises of adventure and plans to see each other in a few months (she has to come home in a few months for her visa - a hassle for her but really exciting for me!). 
I ran off to a fancy work event until late at night then headed over to Union Station to start a new adventure with my favorite partner in crime.
She spent the next day wandering while I had an extremely stressful day at work. After skulking out of the office in a foul mood, there was only one real place to go - a bar with good, strong drinks. 

This was my first time in the Drake Hotel and I wish I could say I didn't wander around with my chin on my chest but in my always elegant fashion, I did. 

Coq d'Or  opened in the '30s after the repeal of prohibition and makes you feel like you've been transported back in time. The drinks are good and it's a great place to people watch. 

There's nothing some girl talk and a strong whiskey can't fix.
