Last Sunday was the Super Bowl and I was never so happy to see it come and go! I was...interesting to live and work in a city with the Super Bowl - I didn't partake in as much stuff, it was freezing, and I read later that some of the expensive parties were a ripoff. But my commute is back to normal, so yay! Now the Winter Olympics are in full swing, and I'm watching all the sports that I only see every 4 years - luge, biathlon, speed skating, curling, etc. 

High of the week: Got some REALLY great news - can't share details just yet but hopefully I will be able to share in next week's post.

Low of the week:  YOU GUYS, I had an ORDEAL this week that proved to me that changing your name is bullshit - I mean, I knew it was bullshit but this week proved it.

I discovered I have an old 401k from a job from 5yrs ago that I never did anything with. I'm a real adult now, so I figured I'd finally do something with it. Except I can't because the account is under my maiden name which is no longer my legal name. So I need to get it changed...which means I have to contact the Benefits center for my old company from 5yrs ago and get them to change it.

In order to do that, I either need to sit on the phone for 30+mins or I can try to recover my login details for the online system. I manage to recover my sign-in ID (yay!), but then I struggle a bit trying to reset my password. Manage to finally get that done and login...and then discover that I can only change address/email/phone online - to change my name I have to call. So I hop BACK on the phone and wait the 30+mins and get a very nice young man, who tells me they have to MAIL me a form to fill out. Luckily I can email it back to them with proof of my name change and then they will change it and then finally it will change with Fidelity.

If I had kept my damn name this wouldn't have been an issue. It was my choice to change my name, and I do like it, but I don't like the extra hassles that changing my name has caused, especially for stuff that I had completely forgotten about.

Anyway, how was everyone's week???

What I read this week:

Current pursuits: All things interior decorating! I'm trying to learn as much as I can, and look at all the pretty things on IG/Pinterest to get ideas and inspiration. If you have sites/tools that you love, please send them my way!
