*took little George for a walk even though it was cold and kinda rainy and wanted nothing more than to crawl back into bed all day*

*drank 4 jillion cups of decaf english breakfast tea with tons of honey and organic milk*

*wished i could have caffeine since decaf tea is NOT THE SAME*

*read an article on a blog where someone else read about it on refinery 29 about this trendy new coffee shop in dc (the coffee bar) that i'll prob never go to bc i hate coffee but wrote it down anyways*

*wished I liked coffee, because the pour-over method sounds MAJOR*

*wished i was hipster enough to be a barrista at a hipster sounding coffee shop in hipster shaw dc*

*discovered 30 bajillion new blogs and now I want nothing more than to write a cool lifestyle blog like everyone else that's cool in dc*

*wished i was described as cool and not verbose and sensitive and long-winded*

*(and high-maintenance) WHAT!????

*read apartment therapy for the 2nd time ever and WISHED my apartment was cute enough to be featured and wished i lived in a better area of dc and wished i had more square feet (footage?) and more of an interior decorator's approach to life*

*roasted the 3 large beets i've had in our fridge for a week because i hate waste and craved a beet*

*wrote down the expression "craved a beet" for my novel that won't become anything much because i've stopped writing it*

*ate a beet and it was everything i dreamed and craved*

*rearranged the flowers we got for our friends yesterday on the way to visit them in columbia, md but then the power steering just GAVE OUT on the new used Expedition and I got to see future hubs look like Hephaestus and see the veins in his neck even*

...and cut off the bottom stems and added more warm water because did you know yellow lilies and all flowers in general are NOT supposed to be kept in cold water?? learned that last year when my fresh flowers that cost loads were all perishing and wilting sadly over the vase. do you call it VACE or VAHZZZ. I say "vace" like "mace"

Did you know that it is illegal to carry mace and pepper spray in dc???? I do anyways. cause I live up in da hood yo.

*fell in LOVE with Smitten Kitchen all over again when eating her "best cocoa brownies" I made 3 nights ago. which are SO. MUCH. BETTER. the second, third and 4th day if they even last that long.

*drank more english breakfast tea even though it was 10 pm*


*had a 2 hour phone convo w the mamasan talking wedding deets and downton sadness.

SPOILER ALERT because I HATE IT WHEN PEEPS eff up my shows by telling me the spoilers. then i never watch again but youtube the shizzz outta that ish.

Matthew not only dies, but they SHOW THE BLOOD TRICKLING DOWN HIS FACE as soon as they pan to Mary holding lil baby heir crawley.

*had an awful dream that we were at a picnic and lil george was found under a wheel*

*woke up crying and looking for lil George who I was never so happy to see*

*thought about Facebook approximately 464983749583745 times and kept reminding myself to read the bible cause i gave it up for lent. didn't read the bible. watched keeping up with the kardashians instead. which i'm sadly obsessed by.

*iced my neck and back and took my meds and ate more greens and wished to blessed GOD spirochetes were never discovered but also glad i know so i'm on my way to the CURE, BITCHES*

*had a major moment when i realized i'm turning THIRTY this year.

*started researching plane tickets for honeymoon/30 bday/

*realized passport expired last february and it's too late to get another before the wedding.


*assisted jer in sauteeing onions with bacon and butter and garlic for the chili omggggggg so good.

*spent the night pretending not to listen to Justified so Jer doesn't think i actually like one of his shows. but i'm hanging on every last damn word. such an addicting showwwwwwww.

*went to bed*
