winter is coming

  1. I woke up this morning and was almost instantly annoyed because it’s so fucking cold. I went outside and it was snowing. Just flurries, but still. I hate cold weather so much. There are maybe six weeks out of every year where I’m actually happy with the weather. I should move back to Southern California.
  2. I am mostly moved into my new office. It’s huge, and it feels empty. I think I need to put a couch in there. Something. It’s also really cold in there.  It’s a really ugly green color. I’m not feeling that at all.  That’s going to have to go.  Anyway, I’m in decorating mode. I need it to feel more cozy and Jenn-like.
  3. I have been in a super grumpy mood all day (see #1) and then I checked my mail to find that I had a save the date card from honoluluorbust. I’m so happy and excited for him.  He’s one of my oldest friends, and I’m super pumped about his wedding. His fiance is the coolest, sweetest guy ever.  OMG SO EXCITED.
  4. Leaving the office early to drink beer and eat chocolate covered cherries also helped improve my mood. I still think I could benefit from a nap before my bf gets here. He told me I better not be grumpy when he gets here.  He’s going to get laid either way so does it really matter? We shall see.  Besides, I’m always nice to him. He’s too cute for me to be mean to him.
  5. Wanna see my “nipple”?


friday five

I wrote a long post and then it got deleted. MF.

  1. Motivation…I have none. It’s seriously too cold to do anything.  All I ever feel like doing is getting under a blanket and reading. This means I haven’t been to the gym in I don’t even know how long. Of course, the cold didn’t stop Dave and I from going out last night for dinner & drinks. I never say no to Six Row. Priorities.
  2. Speaking of reading, I recently started book #6 of 2014: Eleanor and Park.  It’s delightful.
  3. Jax and I have a super busy weekend ahead of us: The Lego Movie, his bestie’s birthday party, basketball practice, a trip to Dave & Buster’s, and dinner with a friend. If I can manage a trip to the gym on Saturday morning, and finish my book, I’ll call that a successful weekend.
  4. Things at work are crazy stressful, and I really need a break.  I’m very much looking forward to my upcoming vacation.  Two weeks from today we will be at the indoor water park. 
  5. I’ve started my own book club.  It’s me and four other female attorneys. I didn’t mean to start a lawyers only book club. It just sort of happened. The only rules are: (1) we take turns picking the book each month, and (2) there will always be wine.
