This is way more exciting than it sounds!!!! I <3 weightlifting. That is all. I am also enjoying this gif: My brain decided to wake me up at 5 this morning. My brain can be a jerk. BUT I have coffee and it’s cool enough to have open windows, so I can hear nature waking up. Guess who has two thumbs and got MARRIED today? That’s right. This girl. We went to the Justice of the Peace this morning and in t minus 10 hours we’ll be headed to Tulum where we’ll have a more spiritual ceremony (and I’ll get to wear my lovely white dress). Eeeek! I’m so excited this is finally happening! Aaaaah how great and terrifying amazingly awesome! Congrats in every imaginable way. Oh wow, that’s lovely news! Well done to you both!! Congratulations! Oh no! I’m breaking out in a case of the happies!! Ack! How will I be able to grouch now?? Congrats!! Can I just share a video I watched today? My day was pretty uninteresting all around. Apparently, the video didn’t post, so here’s the link instead: http://youtu.be/Veg63B8ofnQ I just posted my last assignment to my torts class! I’m getting my paralegal cert so I can get out of my stupid, toxic, awful job and it has been utter madness trying to finish all the work from my last two classes–we moved house and got married while I was trying to get that work done and I ended up needing an extension, which has never happened to me before. Now it’s just time to finish criminal law up tomorrow and then I’m current! Also, we had a huge, dramatic, MAJOR work event this week and because of my employer’s confidentiality agreement, I’m not allowed to talk about it and it is a huge bummer, because it’d be a great thing to casually drop into conversation. I’m drinking what I call a “coping mechanism,” which is a mixture of whatever tasty alcohols I have in the fridge at the moment. Tonight, it’s 100 proof vodka, amaretto, hazelnut liquor, and triple sec. Nice and toasty and warm and easy to drink. I’m usually a train supporter, but three hours for an one hour track ..it’s called communication, people. You don’t say “Yes, take that train” to only have your colleague in said train say “No, nooo.” I had a dinner date! Anyway, cacao sounds amazing. We haven’t got our heating on yet. This shall be changing tomorrow. As of this moment, however, Juniper Puss is feeling the cold to the extent that I put a spare duvet in an Amazon box along with a blanket and he is snuggled up inside it all. I would be going for some hot chocolate but I’m about to creep up to bed and cosy up with Eats, Shopts & Leaves. Hot chocolate for breakfast, perhaps… Oh my. I have scones, too … that it settled, hot chocolate and scones for breakfast! You guys, I’m going to a gala tonight for work. I’m nervous about what I’m wearing and how I’ll look. Let’s hope it turns out well! Good luck! I hope it goes well for you :) Lady, I’ll bet you OWN that outfit. And even if you’re not sure, acting like a confident, comfortable badass is the very best accessory. And after you convince a few other people of your awesomeness, you’ll start to feel more comfortable in your outfit, too. Hope you had a great time! Oh, and did you wear a tiara? There aren’t nearly enough tiara events in real life. I wish I could have worn a tiara! There really aren’t enough tiara events in real life. It was an okay event, but I did feel pretty awesome in my outfit after I got there. Thanks! Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
