1. Why does the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas have to be so short? i mean for serious, where does the time go? it seemed like forever when we were kids, was there like a time warp or something? How are we supposed to fit every holiday festive activity into 4 short weeks? speaking of fitting stuff in (tangent) how do people go to the gym more than 3 days a week? it takes all my scheduling skills just to manage that. and also i can’t believe i have been blogging for 50 weeks, crazy! my one year blogiversary is coming up, yay!
2. Why do people tell me things? it happened numerous times this week, and usually it is not even good friends, just rando acquaintances. which means it is stuff i truly have no business knowing. and i know for a fact that i do not look that friendly.
example: setting- me just sitting somewhere thinking happy thoughts and at peace with the world.
“hey is everything ok?” someone inquires.
“yeah everything is great!” i reply.
“oh, cause you look really pissed off.” they say.
“Nope. thats just my face apparently. but now i’m a little pissed.”
for serious that happens frequently. and yet people still tell me things. secret things, inappropriate things, TMI things. and i am HORRIBLE at keeping a secret. i’m super tempted to type all i learned this weekend here, but too lazy to figure out how to write everything so it seems properly mysterious.
3. I look good holding a baby. granted this is something i did not just learn, but it was reinforced SIX times this weekend at a baptism party. (i can’t help myself, i see a baby i just wanna hold it. Luckily i have friends who see me coming and just pass over their adorable babies) i mean all i was doing was getting a little quality baby cuddling time in and everyone starts giving me the “you look good with a baby, you should get one of your own”. Ok. i’ll get right on that, can i find a good one at Target? for serious, thanks, but how bout you let me find a man first? a devastatingly handsome man i might add cause we would need to make one hell of a cute baby to compete with the ones around now. no pressure tho. seriously, my nephew and his little viking best friend are ridic cute. like i can barely handle it.
4. I’m going to ICELAND! for a bachelorette. like 90% certain. how awesomepants is that? but for serious, i know nothing about Iceland that i haven’t learned from the Mighty Ducks “Greenland is full of ice, Iceland is very nice”. so if anyone has trip suggestions lemme know 🙂
Obsession: STILL the sally hansen salon effects nail stickers. put on Misbehaved, like fishnets over gold, last sunday and it has only chipped a little (at 8 days) and i got like a billion compliments this weekend. i think the trick is to really follow the directions and buff your nails with the file provided, then swipe nail polish remover on before application to ensure there is no oil on ur nails and that makes them really stick.
Movie News: The new Sherlock Holmes. super action packed and entertaining. but i literally have no idea what the plot was besides “Moriarty is doing something nefarious”, and “Robert Downey Jr. is delightful”. oh, and “urban camouflage”. thats it, thats all i got.
Want a picture? here’s my tree in all it’s glory.
