Wine & Love

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?

Six miles is a lot! Good for you!

Wines this week: Feeling overwhelmed and trying to get back on my feet.

Loves this week: That today is Thursday which means tomorrow is Friday!

Good luck w/ your test! I never had to do a blue book exam because my exams were all so computational... so the blue books kind of intimidate me. You will do great!

Wine: I am bummed I will miss you when you are in Minneapolis for the book signing. :(

Love: I have a pretty unplanned weekend, which makes me happy (I need quiet weekends these days). My only plans are to babysit for my boss. His kids are 5 & 8 so it should be easy/fun!

I remember those Blue Book tests! I had a few history classes and had to use them in there. No fun!

Wine: Being in a huge funk. I haven't wanted to do much because of it.

Love: My job anxiety has lessened immensely in the past few weeks so it makes coming to work enjoyable. :)

I LOVED the book "Room"! I was quite skeptical of it at first but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down!

My love for this week is the delicious pasta I'm eating right now. SO good!

I can' say I have any wines though, so I guess that's a good thing!

I'm going to a "Baby Expo" this weekend, where it's all things baby! I'm pretty excited for it :)

Lesli said...

Awww, you are soo sweet! I can't wait to see you next week! xoxo

Donna said...

I am impressed by any running at all!

Kyria @ Travel Spot said...

Good job on the running! I loved the book Room! And this weather is fantastic! It was in the 70s today in my area! Crazy.

My wine is that I decided to trim my hair today and now I have been feeling itchy ALL DAY. Ug. And I am feeling too lazy to take another shower.

Ugh I know! Just when we thought we were in the clear and headed to spring, winter had to rear it's ugly head!

I feel like I've missed something - what drama is going on in the internet world???

Jennifer Delle Fave said...

Go girl on your running!! I bet you're feeling fantastic. :) I just cannot stand some of these bloggers/drama. It's mostly on twitter, but seriously, rude is rude! What happened to, "If you can't say something nice.." Yuck. I hope no one is being mean to you; I'll kick their butt haha. Have a great week! (and I hear ya on the blog content, I feel like I'm somewhat stale, and therefore don't write. Oops.)
