Tuesday Ramblings

Do I have the cutest nephew or what? If you follow me on snapchat you probably saw all the videos Friday of him pointing at candy and snacks at Home Goods saying "can-ee, can-ee" and "num num num num num." Plus the kid loves to dance! I can't take it, he's too stinking adorable!

Did you watch the Bachelor finale last night? What did you think? I mean obviously boring but beautiful Lauren B. was going to win, but did Ben have to let JoJo keep talking on and on about how much she loves him right before he dumped her? Ugh it seemed so heartless! So happy JoJo is the Bachelorette though, if it had been Caila I would have been bored to tears.

Brian's parents came to visit this weekend and brought us this beautiful piece of furniture that Brian's dad built for us. Sorry this picture I took isn't great, the weather has been so cloudy for days so I don't have any good light to take a nice picture. It is so pretty though and perfect for storing all of our wine and liquor, as well as wine glasses, etc. I've added more stuff to it since I took this picture actually. The glass in the doors up top is over 100 years old which is really neat, and the middle part has a granite inlay. We love it!

I am sick of lunch! I hate making it, eating it, everything about it. I am not a big sandwich person, and having a salad everyday upsets my stomach. Got any fresh lunch ideas?

I don't know if I've mentioned it but I am walking! I'm still in the big boot but I no longer need crutches or the scooter! Fingers crossed that at my appointment next Friday the doctor tells me when I can drive again, I feel like I'm in middle school the way I keep having to ask for rides everywhere.

Have a good Tuesday! It's PLL season finale night! Who do you think has the "twin?" I think Ali's mom, but who knows?!

So What If

So what if.. I don't really like going out to eat (or to the mall, or the movies) on the weekends anymore, mainly because of all the crowds! I am not a people person, can you tell? haha

So what if.. I forgot how to drive in the past three months that I've been off my feet. No seriously, can you forget how to drive? I'm excited to have some freedom again (whenever that is.. hopefully in the next few weeks) but I'm definitely a little nervous.

So what if.. I don't watch any zombie tv shows. I feel like the only person who doesn't, are they really that good? I need to know if I am missing out.

So what if.. I don't look forward to spring and summer. I had extensive sinus surgery last winter, and my ENT said yesterday that my sinuses are still all inflamed from allergies, and I just got off antibiotics from yet another sinus infection. That's with the twice daily nasal saline rinsing, the 2 daily allergy/asthma pills, the nasal steroids, and the sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops). I'm allergic to like a million things, and spring definitely isn't a great time for allergies. Plus booo I hate heat, give me 50 degrees or below everyday and I'd be happy.

So what if.. I go into crazy cleaning mode whenever I know someone is about to come over. Those vases are crooked! Those bills on the counter? They need to go! It's a good opportunity to declutter, at least that's how I see it.

So what if.. I don't think it's okay to bash people's political opinions all over social media. I mean, it's a free country and you can do/say whatever you want, but that doesn't mean I have to like it or read it or follow you. Can't we all just get along and respect each other's opinions without resorting to name-calling or belittling? *stepping off the soap box*

5, 4, 3, 2, 1

So I did a somewhat similar post to this a few years back that I got from someone else (their post has since been deleted or else I'd link to it) so I thought since I'm inspiration-less, I'd give it another whirl.

Five things I did over the weekend:
1. Burned the crap out of my mouth on my breakfast. Ouch!  
2. Physical therapy exercises. Fun.. and also ouch.
3. Watched Grey's Anatomy. Of course. 
4. Went to lunch at our wedding venue. It's the first time we've been back since the wedding. I miss our wedding, wah! 
5. Celebrated my Dad's and Brian's birthdays. We surprised Brian with the new Xbox, he was excited!

Four items I recently purchased:
1. Some shirts on sale from American Eagle. I needed some new short sleeve shirts for spring and summer and they had a super deal so I couldn't resist. 
2. A Real Techniques makeup sponge. Finally.  
3. White eyeliner. I heard it's the new thing to brighten up your eyes.
4. Some soaps and a candle from Bath and Body Works. I can't resist.  

Three shows I'm glad just came back/are coming back this week:
1. Once Upon a Time.
2. Quantico
3. The Family. Technically this is just coming on, not coming back, since it's new, but I like it so far! 

Two reasons I'm excited for spring:
1. The decorations. We just put up our spring decor this weekend and I love the pretty colors! 
2. Earth Day. My dad organizes a festival every year for the last 15 or so years and it's super fun; we all volunteer every year and Brian and I run the prize table. 

One thing that's annoying me:
1. Reagan on New Girl. She is not funny. Thank goodness Jess is supposed to be back this week.

Google History

So I've done this kind of post a few times before (here we even hosted a link up a few years back!), but I think it's fun sometimes to recap what I've Googled recently because I'm kinda weird. So here are the things I've Googled in the past week.

Glacier Freeze Gatorade Flavor. I hate how Gatorade names their flavors so ambiguously. I wanted to know what this one tastes like because I like it and couldn't figure it out. The consensus seems to be some kind of berry or blue raspberry. Do you know?

Why did Isaiah Washington leave Grey's Anatomy? Well that's not a fun story, but I figured it was something bad for him to have been written off so quickly.

Nelson from Full House. Bahaha my sister and her boyfriend did that faceswap thing on Snapchat and I screenshotted it because her with her boyfriend's face looks so much like the grown up Nelson. I cracked up for like an hour when I sent her this. Tell me that isn't hilarious.

Tai Chi. We watched the Intern this weekend and I saw they were doing Tai Chi and it looks so relaxing and a little more interesting than yoga. I looked classes up but of course there are like none here in the Middle of Nowhere, Pennsylvania, so I may end up ordering a DVD from Amazon or something for when I get back on both feet. Have you ever done it? Did you like it?

Girl Scout Cookies. I seriously have to find some in my area because I NEED them.

Damn Daniel. I was seeing this all over the internet and apparently Ellen even had this Daniel guy and his friend on her show! I still don't get it though, why did it go viral? Ugh

I will not be ignored Dan movie quote. I've heard this on Gilmore Girls many times and I always say it, so I figured it was time to learn where it was originally from. Apparently it's from Fatal Attraction, which I've never seen. Have you seen it? Should I? I'm pretty sure it's on Netflix.
