Hello, Friends! (I totally just typed out Friday instead of Friends - whoa, I'm ready for the weekend)
I feel like lately I have ZERO content for the blog, besides what I have been doing lately, which isn't really all that exciting! But... I do always have w(h)ines and loves each week, so since I remembered that Thursday is Nora's fantastic Wine and Love feature, I figure I HAVE to participate!
Each week we post about what is making us reach for the wine out of ... annoyance? And what is making us reach for the wine out of happiness! (You know you're reaching for the wine either way, right??)
So this week my loves are...
♥ The book Room. I seriously cannot put this book down. It got to that really good I-just-can't-stop-thinking-about-this-book part last night and all day all I wanted to do was reeeeaaaaaad!
♥ Making new friends! You know when you meet someone new and you just click and automatically know that you're going to be great friends? Seriously, it's probably one of the best feelings in the world. I'm convinced that I was friends with those people in another life. That's just gotta be what it is!
♥ I've logged 6 miles so far this week and I still have three days scheduled to work out this week! I know that's not very much to some of you, but usually that's what I do in one week! I'm pushing myself and it's really beginning to pay off.
♥ How did I squeeze in those 6 miles, you ask? Well, I'm getting paid to work out. Yep. One of the new clients I have been working with wants to go to the YMCA everyday and stay there for about 3 hours. Yes, I'm serious. He plays basketball and I run on the track a floor above him. I can still see him, so it works out well. I don't run for three hours (oh, gawd) but after I'm done working out I will usually go study or read. It's working out awwwwe-some.
♥ This BEAUTIFUL weather we have been having! Seriously, so gorgeous out.
♥ That I get to see Lesli next week for Books 'n Bars (she's driving down from Minneapolis to attend! I'm so pumped!) and then I get to turn around and visit HER the following week for the Jodi Picoult signing. I love having things like these to look forward to! :)
Ok, so I do have some whines, so here goes it...
> The history test I have today. It's one of those blue book essay tests that are graded extremely subjectively because you have to draw your own thesis as to WHY the events happened during ___________ time period, which is fine, but I just get all anxious! I'm ready to get it over with.
> Drama, drama, drama in the internet world. Can't we all just play nice? Aren't we too old for bullying? No? Well... cut it out. It's stupid.
> Snow in the forecast today. Yes, right after I put "beautiful" weather as a love. Ugh. Mother Nature, that's not cool.
I can't think of anymore wines and I think that's a good thing, so I'm going to stop here. Why would I keep trying to think of things that are annoying me?
What are you loving this week? Do you have big plans for the weekend?
