i just got a call from my sweet seventy-something year old neighbor next door, asking if i had any plans in the morning. we haven’t seen as much of each other over the winter months since we don’t sit out on our porches in the evenings, but we talk on the phone from time to time to keep in touch. she wanted to know if we’d like to come over for breakfast in the morning + whether or not we like eggs/bacon/sausage/coffee. um, yes — to all the above. so we’ve got a late breakfast date + as she put it, ‘just come on home when you finish working out, and we’ll chit-chat over breakfast!’
.5 another round of ice + sleet came through last night, shutting down schools + knocking over trees/power lines. thousands have been without power/heat since late last night, including rhyan + his dad. [curses, old man winter]
.4 this week has been a long one. between work being a train wreck + family drama swirling, i’m ready for it to be over. warm temperatures return just in time for the weekend + upper 60’s for the next six days will be grand. [hi, spring]
.3 i found a bunch of new bikinis on sale at vs, which is very exciting. i also found a ton of new workout clothes from old navy for dirt cheap. [sales, ftw]
.2 one week from today + i’ll be boarding a plan to nyc, then we’ll hop a plane the following morning and arrive in antigua before noon. [hello, cocktails!]
.1 i’ve already rented a redbox + plan on vegging on the couch with rhyan, pizza, and perhaps a [big] glass of red tonite. [don’t look at me like that]
that’s the problem with drinking, i thought, as i poured myself a drink. if something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.
i’ll be on vacation for a week + i’m on the hunt for the perfect
lounging on the beach [with not a worry in the world] book.
going out on the balcony
to eat egg salad + wheat thins
sounds absurd, but it really is necessary.
recently discovered + fell in love.
i literally put this on [and in] everything.
this cheese is so versatile + delicious.
these are my go-to magical treat.
the perfect alternative to traditional chinese food.
so tell me, what are your top five favorites?!
sometimes you need to burn bridges to stop yourself from crossing them again.
blue jasmine movie on the tv
hot cinnamon + vanilla tea in hand
a long talk with dad after my favorite zumba class
+ everything you can see is covered in a sleet/now mix.
