A Few Things Friday


1.  Every New Year someone says “I can’t believe it’s _______!  Remember when it was 1999 and we were all fah-reaking out that the world was going to end?!?!”  And they smile all goofy and wide-eyed, and sometimes I just stare at them and say, “I don’t remember much since the ‘incident’…” and walk away.  Because things like that are fun for me.

2.  I HAVE A NEW SHOW ADDICTION. (Yes, that deserves all caps.) Anyways, I watched the entire first season, and caught up on the second season of Revenge last weekend and, um, wowza.  Just amazingness.  Any show with a kick-ass chick that can do like, kung-fu and manipulate people with her tricky, smoldering, womany ways is always a win in my book, but this show is like a legit soap opera.  Every week someone is getting slapped, divorced or murdered and I LOVE IT.  If you need a good show to fill in some down time, I highly recommend it.  Also, there is some serious sexual man candy and I have a huge girl crush on Emily Thorne/real Amanda Clark.


3.  So about that Target/Neiman Marcus collaboration… would you think less of me if I told you I returned everything I bought a week after I first bought it at full price and then just re-purchased everything at 70% off?  Ok then I didn’t… (I did.) But a Marc Jacobs clutch at $20 is cray.  And now someone please slap me for saying “cray.”

4.  I like to think of myself as a pretty independent little lady, but when it comes to anything car-related I’m hot mess.  For example, I had that little “tire pressure” light come on in my car last week and immediately pulled off the road and called my boss, screaming that I had a flat tire and I’d be super late for work.  Turns out that just means you need more air.  Also the fact that my tire wasn’t flat would have been a great clue for that.

5.  I went to Dunkin Donuts this week and had the guy at the counter predict my drink order like a boss.  I’m talking: Medium latte, skim milk with a flavor.  He couldn’t guess that the flavor was coconut, but HOLY CRAP!  I don’t know what this says about me, if I’m like, some kind of mark for frothy warm drinks or if my man was psychic, but I assure you I’d never been to that DD before and now I’m going to have to go back in nothing less than a full disguise and re-test this phenomenon.

6.  I am a total failure in the kitchen these days.  I like to think it’s because of the holidays, but I feel like I haven’t cooked an actual meal in months.  At least nothing new or remotely exciting.  I made it through my 30-days of Paleo (barely), having tried a few new things, but mostly I’ve been throwing crap in a crockpot or eating scrambled eggs.  I need inspiration, people!!

So let me know if you have any good recipes that I should try in the comments, and you can even leave links, that shit doesn’t bother me.  Enjoy your weekends, loves, catch you on the flip side!

  1. I’ve been looking for something new to watch… I blew through Parenthood while tackling holiday tasks. Tried to watch Burn Notice but the leading lady’s plastic lips are REALLY disconcerting. Your DD is way better than mine because they can’t make a decent cup of coffee to save their lives. It’s REEEEAAAALLLY bad. I made a buffalo chicken skillet pizza and some kinda lightened up pad thai that were both super easy and crazy delicious in the last week. It’s a place to start.

  2. This post absolutely cracked me up! You absolutely need to test this psychic DD man theory. Or just throw him off and order something really manly like a plain, black coffee. haha. I’m right there with you on the car stuff though! There are too many parts, I can’t keep track!

  3. I think that’s why I’m better off without a car. Because I’m SO DUMB when it comes to anything remotely wrong with it. We’re girls, so we can totally get away with it. 🙂

  4. This may sound crazy (“cray”! 😉 ) after all the holiday binging – I mean eating – but we just bought a seriously marked down ($1.50/lb marked down from $3.50/lb) spiral sliced ham, and it was delicious + gave us tons of leftovers! Great and easy when you don’t know what to make.

  5. I’m the EXACT same way when it comes to car stuff, I immediately FREAK OUT and call my dad and hubby to ask them a billion questions about it. lol

    & No you are not crazaayyyy, you’re a frugal genius in my book! 😉

  6. Oh man, when something goes wrong I’m completely screwed. That is exactly why instead of keeping a fully paid off car, I traded that sucker in right away. If I can have a warranty that means I don’t have to do a single thing, it’s completely worth it.

  7. Haha I love this post! Revenge sounds right up my guilty pleasure street 😉

  8. I’ve been abusing Skinny Taste’s blog for recipes lately. So many good crock pot ones.
    I wish I would have gone back for the clearance Neiman Stuff at Target. Poor planning on my part.
    Happy Friday my love!

  9. I feel ya on the lack of kitchen time lately – it has got to turnaround soon otherwise my pants are going to not fit me anymore. TGIF!!

  10. revenge is seriously my obsession. i counted down the hours until the new episode last night. ok im sorta kidding. but maybe not really. love.that.show!!!!
