I'm laying here, sprawled out on my bed on this abnormally warm LA evening, feeling overwhelmed and too warm. I thought having a little blog ramble would be therapeutic and help me categorize my thoughts. It's like writing in a public diary; maybe not ideal for everyone, but it works for me.
My Blogs: I really am enjoying this little guy and Dreaming in Blush. I missed blogging. There is definitely something different about videos than blogging. I like them both, but they are different.
Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Honey Bath: This stuff is so lush. I am in love. Between this and my Laura Mercier Soufflé Body Crème, which I reviewed here, I am addicted to bubble baths again. Plus, the little "honey dipper" thing that comes with it is adorable! I feel like I'm dipping into a bee hive every time I use this, and the jar is too heavy for Pinecone to knock off the counter and break. #Win.
Hershey's Cookies N Creme chocolate bar: I never particularly liked or disliked these growing up, but I have become addicted to them recently. If I am in a store and want something sweet, or am picking up snacks for movie night, this is what I've been selecting. Sam texted me last night to ask what I wanted for movie night and my response was "Cookies N Creme and Gatorade!" Oh yes. I am in love with yellow gatorade too.
Devious Maids, the TV show. Sometimes when I'm feeling bored I will see what's available for "free download" on iTunes. A lot of times if a show is new, they will offer their pilot episode for free. So I downloaded this one, thinking I had nothing to lose, and put it on the other night while I was cleaning my kitchen. I got totally hooked, guys. It's SO good. It reminds me a bit of Desperate Housewives, oddly enough. If you liked that show (I miss it!!) you should download this pilot and give it a shot.
Big Brother: One of my favorite TV shows, and I look forward to this one every summer. It's only 2 episodes in and I know it's going to be a good season. I'm rooting for Elissa a little bit, because as annoying as the rest of the world found Rachel I actually really liked her. I do wish they had brought Britney from seasons 12 and 14 back though, because she was one of my all time favorite players. I miss her commentary!
Game of Thrones: I know, what is this? 3 TV picks in one post? Geez! But I had someone insist on getting me hooked on this series, and sure enough, it worked. I'm hooked. I want a dire wolf and a sword named needle.
Decorating my condo: Don't get me wrong, I actually really like decorating and organizing, but I feel very overwhelmed with my current condo. It's completely a blank canvas, which sounds way more exciting than it is. I have so many ideas of where I want the decor to go but I'm so freaking indecisive. One day I will be sure that I want one thing, and then the next I'll be feeling completely different. For instance, I saw a picture of a living room with two small tables pushed together to form a coffee table, and I loved it. It felt unique and looked really cool, and I was like, "that's what I'm going to do." Then the next day I see another picture of just one coffee table, and I'm like, "Okay that makes sense. I think one coffee table is more uniform and will be easier to make look neat." The result? I currently have no coffee table at all and am literally using a still-packed "holiday" box as my coffee table. W. T. F. I have issues.
Oh, and don't mind the cat sitting there. That's his "bed". He insists on sitting in it where ever I am, and howls until I bring in into the room I'm in. Taking pictures of the coffee table? *Howls until I set the bin on top* *Jumps in and proceeds to look annoyed in the picture* #Normal
Pinecone making a ton of noise at night: I'm not sure I completely noticed the extent of this until last night, when my friend Sam decided to stay the night. She has stayed over before, but this time she came armed with ear plugs in case "the tyrant is loud again". Seriously?! What?! My guests have to bring over EAR PLUGS because my cat is so obnoxious at night!? And to top it off, she brought a pair for me "in case I wanted to try them". And you know what? I loved them. I slept like a baby. They feel weird as heck, but I'm going to try them again tonight.
P.S. I honestly think some of Pinecone's "behavioral issues" are because he is deaf. Not because being deaf equals behavioral issues, but because he doesn't know the amount of noise he makes. The little guy thinks he is being sleuth-y, crawling around and howling, when in reality everyone and their mother in a mile radius can hear him.
My Diet Coke Detox: It's still going strong, but I am really missing the good ole DC. Sam opened one of my "final 3" this morning and it totally caused a craving to hit. Diet Coke, I miss you. You were one of the loves of my life.
The movie "The Call": Watched this last night, and I had the worst anxiety throughout it. Don't get my wrong, I don't mind scary movies, but there was something about this one in particular that really got to me. I don't like the idea of 911 not being able to help you or find you when you are in trouble. On top of that, there is something about abduction that makes me super uncomfortable (more so than torture or anything else that is terrible but common in scary movies).
The movie "Beautiful Creatures": Also watched this last night, (we had movie and wine night), and goodness gracious, what a weirdo movie. Did anyone understand this? Anyone who didn't read the book? I was so confused, and not in a good way. We didn't even finish it.
My Outs are longer than my Ins, but you know what? That's okay. Sometimes that's life. Until next time, over and out, Captain Crunch.
