Hey there, happy Monday! My Monday would be a little happier if my Eagles could have pulled off a win (insert disgruntled noises) yesterday, but hey, what can you do.
On the bright side, I finally had a weekend that was semi-relaxing and wonderfully boring. After another long week of late nights and one actual morning gym session (NEVER AGAIN), it was pretty much a requirement. Not only did it involve naps and lots of sweatpants, but I even managed to squeeze in some DVR time and was in bed every night by 11:30. Yes, it was all very long overdue.
Speaking of overdue, I also started watching Homeland. And, um… OMG. Seriously. Where have I been?! I am actually kind of disappointed in myself that it took this long. Brandon and I fully intended to do an all-day season 1 marathon, but unfortunately, didn’t make it as far as we wanted. But we fully intend to give it our full attention next weekend.
I also had a lovely dinner with some of my favorite lady friends on Saturday night, resulting in lots of talking (which definitely ended up getting really loud- sorry to the other patrons…) and a crap-load of wine. (See previous parenthesis.) Not that I could have a bad time when there’s pad Thai involved, but I definitely needed a relaxing night like that. I hate that when life gets really busy, it gets so hard to make time for your friends, but I really need to be better about it. I always feel lighter after spending time with people who know me and get my slew of little quirks, but still love me despite them. I always just feel a little bit more centered afterwards.
In other random news, I got scissor-happy last week.
It was bound to happen sooner or later. Hopefully I’ll find some time in the next few weeks to let a professional make that situation a little bit less “I just cut my hair over the sink and oh hey now I have bangs”. Or I’ll just rock them like this, either way.
Alright, well I’m going to stop rambling now. I’m pretty excited for dinner tonight- we’re going to check out a restaurant that I’ve been wanting to visit for a while now. And the reason we’re going to dinner on a random Monday night is to celebrate 2 whole years of wedded bliss. It’s hard to believe it’s been 2 years (9 that we’ve actually been together), but there is no one else who I would rather play the “lets see who will empty the dishwasher first” game with or beat at Jeopardy on a regular basis. Seriously though, he’s the best. <3
