Thoughts from a Tuesday

Life Ramblings

-I can’t believe how much the temps dropped overnight. And I can’t believe I lived in Boston and could endure this type of weather for months! I keep thinking just get through these two weeks and it will be February. Then I feel guilty for wishing time away. You know those House Hunters episodes where they just uproot, move to a Caribbean island, and volunteer at the locals schools? That sounds really appealing right now:)


-Warmth reminds me of beach and beach reminds me of crab! Trader Joes makes a decent crab chowder [my dinner], and without sounding like a family advertisement, its best with a Great Harvest cheddar jalapeno scuffin!

-I just watched the 3rd episode of Downton Abby, and I’m officially hooked…I wasn’t expecting that.


-I think this might be the last piece of Christmas chocolate in the house:( As soon as spring arrives, I promise to eat fruit for dessert, but for now I’m enjoying a tid bit of chocolate each night.

-I’m already seeing spring colors pop up in stores and I’m having a hard time resisting. I keep telling myself it’s only January, but I’m dying to look for wedding weekend outfits and honeymoon dresses. I can buy a few extra things this year, right?

-My shower is white for the first time in ages…more on that later. 6am spinning comes early. Goodnight!

    I kept staring at the chocolate thinking it was wine and was so confused, haha.

    I too cannot wait for warmer weather. Only a few more months!

    I hear you on the weather…it was -4 this morning here in Maine! Yikes! The Caribbean is sounding really good right now!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Downton Abbey! What a great show!

      Its an “About Me” widget on the sidebar that includes an image – it was already set up that way and I just added it…

      Downton is a bit slow at first, but stick with it!

    Um, hello…loving this blog already. Just found you through the KERF post and I think you and I are totally on the same page in life…just finished up my masters, moved in with my air force hunnie 6 months ago, working 40+ hours a week, losing all my free time to taking care of dogs and a boyfriend…AND just started Downton as well…we just watched episode 2. Talk about blogging fate. Super excited to read through your old posts on the quarter-life transitioning process.
