1. I stayed up until 3:30 a.m. watching Arrested Development on Netflix
2. I slept in until 12:30 (lunchtime)
3. It was going to be a lazy day. I thought about not wearing makeup to lunch but then thought better of it. However. I didn’t think better of wearing exercise leggings for pants. DO you know what happens when you do that? You see people you know, that’s what. The last thing you want to be wearing when you see people you know is leggings as pants.
4. We ate barbecue at Dreamland.
5. Aaron wanted to go somewhere else, so we headed to my favorite antique store in Mobile. Everyone else we know was there too.
6. I bought Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk paint in shutter gray.
7. I drove home.
8. I immediately started painting my kitchen hutch.
9. I caught up on How I Met Your Mother and watched the new Revenge.
10. Now I’m blogging.
Look what Aaron and ran into when we went to eat lunch on Saturday. haha. I find this very entertaining, and I really wonder what a Bachelorette contestant has to do with the Senior Bowl…and why he got his picture on the flyer instead of the NFL players and coaches. haha.
But if you’re interested ladies…this was at Picklefish in Mobile.
After work I headed over to Mobile to see my sweetie. We ate at our usual Friday night in Mobile place, La Cocina for some Mexican. We didn’t end up in Biloxi afterwards like the last time we ate there, but we were a little spontaneous. We went and used a giftcard to see a movie. Silver Linings Playbook. It was good, but it was one of those heavy, kind of depressing movies that I can’t really watch more than once. Oh, and it had that “I’m trying really hard to be artsy” shaking camera effect that made me a little nauseous. Here I go being all critical when I really liked it. The dancing parts were my favorite.
Words from an amazing teacher.
I’ve had him on my mind this past week as I’ve been keeping up with his story on caringbridge. He is in the final stages of cancer, and so many of his previous students are sending thoughts and prayers his way.
Mr. Varner was one of my favorite teachers because he was so passionate about teaching and making science interesting to students. He inspired me to seek that kind of passion in my own career. Mr. Varner was also the person that helped me write the speech I had to give at graduation as valedictorian. The overall theme I was going for was being present for all the moments of our lives -big or small. He helped me find the right words. I will always remember him for his signature mustache (which you can see on his signature up there).
Choices. Choices. Choices. I spent Wednesday evening trying to figure out what scents I wanted to order for my Scentsy. Not all of those are for me. Some were my grandma’s and cousin’s. I think I narrowed my choices down to four: Coconut Lemongrass, Lucky in Love, Happy Birthday, and think Camu Camu. I’m not sure. I may have switched to Kahiko Hula at the last minute. It was too hard to decide.
Hopefully I made some good choices and my house will be smelling sweet.
Tuesday. I FINALLY went grocery shopping. With a list and everything! I decided to start tackling one of my new year’s resolutions and buy ingredients to make two of my Pinterest recipes: taco macaroni and cheese and greek chicken salad.
Mi madre apparently didn’t have any faith in me that I would go grocery shopping. She stopped by the store on the way home too, so we ended up with double milk, bread, and eggs.
Mondays. Mondays. Mondays.
You know what makes Mondays better? Saving all my patients with goals like problem-solving, reasoning, and short-term memory (because I constantly have to remind them of the rules) for the end of the day, and then just finishing up my day with a couple of hours of UNO. I have no mercy.
