The Naughty List

My niece is very concerned she is on the naughty list this year. When I told her not to worry, I'm probably on it too, she said "No way, Nana, because you're the best Aunt ever."

Guess who's getting whatever she wants for Christmas?

Third time's the charm!

I was convinced I needed to grow up and live by a calendar. Again.

This is the third time I've tried being a big girl. I get really overwhelmed with life, then I get really excited about putting it in a calendar. I feel really good about myself for scheduling things to do and proud of myself for taking the initiative to organize. Then I get really annoyed with all the reminders, turn them off and forget about them.

I will allow you to bet on how long it lasts, but just know I'm going to try really hard this time.

Overheard in the office.

My cubemate just called the cleaning lady a myopic twit because she apparently has issues with emptying his trashcan correctly.

What a great phrase I will be commandeering.

One step closer.

What's missing on this main page?
That's right. That dreaded Facebook app. I deleted it. It's a small step but a step forward nonetheless to stop giving a crap what other people are doing and focus on what I'm doing. I realized I was becoming addicted and it was getting in the way of other things. I didn't have the guts to delete my entire account but if this doesn't work, I'm holding y'all to make me.

Women's bathroom?

Seriously confused.

Raising the standards.

I met my version of Justin Long's character in He's just not that into you today. He made a really good point. I'm worth more than a text message. I'm worth a phone call.

We (i) need to stop getting so excited over a text message and not allow guys to cop out like that. Man up and call me or I'm not that interested in you.

New York Marathon

Hipster style, including an awesome band (Heels on Fire- you should check them out. I'm actually planning my wedding to the drummer as we speak). Getting inspiration for the Half in March.
These runners are quite attractive which is making it easy to stand in the cold.

On my way to finding happiness

I stumbled upon the most fabulous pair of skinny jeans. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing they are, but maybe I can. I know everyone has been on that journey for the perfect pair of jeans before so I'm sure I don't have to tell you but it's an amazing feeling. It was a 2 year journey but it seems I finally found mine! YaY!

Do you even know how hard it is to find jeans that are long enough, high enough on the waist to cover a muffin top and tight enough to fit into boots for the winter? On the plus side they make my butt look amazing if I do say so myself. The best part? They are 2 sizes smaller than I've worn in years.

So I did what every sane woman would do. I bought 4 pairs :)

Daytime Television

If I ever get around to being a properly unemployed person (let's hope it won't ever come to that though. Fingers crossed) I would like to watch Ellen more often. She makes me laugh.

Did anyone else watch today?
I learned Justin Beiber has an autobiography. No joke. He's 16. What could that book possibly say?! He's still in diapers for the love of christmas, which is very apparent by the way his pants sag. I'm just sayin.

On the plus side, I learned how to dougie. Thanks, E! I always wondered what that song was talking about.

You know that stupid saying "life is what happens while you're making other plans"? Well what if your other plans are becoming your life?

Another plus for New York.

I'm free from fashion judgment in NYC. If I want to wear my cowboy boots with a party dress or run out in my pajamas, someone else will always trump me. I seem to forget the rest of the country isn't like this.

Really, America?

I'm very saddened by the results of this poll. Granted, it is DC tourists answering but still. I can't even get started on how many issues I have with this.
