Happy Hour

{Beacon Falls in Upstate NY}

I have to tell you guys the funniest story. Well, at least I think it's funny, but maybe I'm just crazy. Last Friday, I'm sitting at my desk, dealing with a ridiculous wine pizza hangover (#strugglecity) from NYCWFF. I'm typing out an email, when I start hearing a clicking noise, a click that is definitely not coming from my keyboard. Thinking I'm imagining things based on a lack of sleep, I continue typing. The noise gets louder, so I turn to check it out, and as I do, a furry little face peeks up at me from the foot of my desk. Keep in mind, we have no pets. Within the span of 0.5 seconds I realize it's a squirrel, scream like someone just got murdered in front of me, frantically start dialing my husband, and jump on the couch. What can I say? It was a productive half second. After I calm down/remember how to breath/don't pass out, I inspect our screen door to find that the squirrel had some how weaseled his way underneath the screen. He had run back out of the apartment when I screamed, but needless to say I've now been extra careful when I leave the door open as the neighborhood squirrel is not exactly my ideal assistant. In addition to wild animal intruders, this week has been a bit of a busy one, so I'm looking forward to heading to the Caribbean this weekend for one of my best friend's weddings.

Do you guys have any fun plans coming up? And I have to ask, any funny encounters with wild animals in your home? Please tell me I am not the only one!

{Ever since Mr. RC and I discovered this Instagram account, we've become obsessed with abandoned things, usually simultaneously shouting "It's abandoned!" when we see something that looks abandoned (obviously). You know we said that about this house, which you know means we had to take a picture of it.}
