Let’s all agree on one thing:
Newscasters are freaking out with their thermometers while standing on a city corner in their puffy North Face jackets. Some have gone above and beyond with photos of things covered in snow. Gone are the yesteryears of patio furniture piled high with the white fluffy stuff. We’ve escalated to measuring snow with toddlers (and it’s pretty funny). Florida got a pass, being the only state to have a different color than purple, lavender or blue. Signing into social media gives you a nervous twitch. Basically, this:
So let’s quit beating a dead horse and move along, shall we?
Sunday was a big day, as there was the two hour season premier of DOWNTON! As I snuggled into the couch with my dog by my side, I heard a collective groan from the males who live in my house. I turned up the volume as they mimicked Maggie Smith. Finally, I sat up and said, “YOU KNOW WHAT? I’VE BEEN WATCHING FOOTBALL FOR MONTHS. MONTHS!! EVERY.SINGLE.DAY! EVERY WEEKEND AFTERNOON! JUST LET ME HAVE THIS ONE SHOW.”
Hey, a girl needs her quiet time with British drama’s, yknow?
Over the weekend MD and I went shopping at the mall before leaving Nashville. Two important things were purchased:
1. My new wallet with Rigby on the front
2. A pair of Mordecai & Rigby slippers
Also, if you think I’m an asshole for being in my thirties and having cartoon related items in my possession then clearly we cannot be friends anymore. This show is the greatest thing to happen to my Monday nights:
I also noticed that the store had buy one get one free on cool earrings. I’m a sucker for earrings! The only catch was they were gauges to stretch your ears. I saw the panic in my husband’s face when he noticed the swirls in my earlobes. A 12g is probably the lowest I’ll go. I’ve just always wanted these swirled earrings and I’ve never taken the time to wear them properly. This morning though, my husband said, “So um… about your earrings…” I kissed him and reminded him that I wouldn’t go any larger nor would I try for saucer size. Pinkie swear!
Yesterday I also made an executive decision in regards to my health and joined a gym. I’ve never done anything like this before and judging by the other people I saw in the waiting room with me, neither had they. However, everyone I encountered was really awesome, extremely friendly and nonjudgmental. Which is probably also part of their job. I’m pretty stoked about the classes offered, the fact that it’s 24 hour and that I am meeting with my personal trainer in a week. When the guy asked me what type of goals I had for myself, my honest, non thought out answer was, “I don’t want everything to jiggle when I laugh.” Which of course, made him laugh.
Look, I love myself and my body. We’ve been through some pretty traumatic shit over the past ten years. I understand that jiggling is part of aging. So are random chin hairs (don’t you even try to play it off like it hasn’t happened to you either). My goal is to just lessen the jiggle. Believe me, if I go out to eat, I’m going to eat. If you bake me a pie, I’m going to eat a piece of it. I’m a firm believer in enjoying life and what it has to offer. I’m also pretty stoked to have a stress reliever at my beck and call. Can’t beat that!
Oh and another thing! Yesterday I was listening to the Black Keys. During Everlasting Light, I happened to see a dancing pizza gif – just follow me on this one. I don’t know why, but seeing it made me laugh. Then I noticed that the pizzas were moving in perfect sync with the song. Don’t you just love when shit like that happens? I DO. Here’s the gif:
Now go be awesome today and don’t forget, it’s COLD outside!
