:: reminiscing over jude's wedding photos. (this is one of my favorites. isn't she dreamy? it was so fun getting to be a woodland nymph for a day. and i can't wait to re-wear that crazy dress this summer.)
:: making poached eggs in the microwave. i suck at making them on the stove, and they turn out just as good this way! (recipe: 1/3 cup water in an 8 oz, small, round tupperware container. crack the egg into the water and microwave for 45 seconds. carefully pour into a slotted spoon to drain the water from the egg. place on a toasted english muffin! i drizzle honey mustard and hot sauce over mine.)
:: repeating this verse over and over through major stress: "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." - Deuteronomy 31:8.
:: getting back to my friend's spin class after a brief hiatus. love that type of cardio... she plays the best music!
:: late monday nights watching The Bachelor when Laura gets home from her grad class. it's a thing.
:: packing up my office cube (didn't i just move into it three months ago?!) to move to a building across the parking lot. so long, quiet space.
:: these "snow days" are a joke. sure, kids have off school, but the roads are clear and i have to go to work. sigh. envying my teacher friends right now.
:: my friend Brooke and i watched the Grumpy Cat christmas movie the other day. it was equal parts awesome and awful.
:: my other roommate is stuck in New York with the blizzard. she might make it home in the next month or so.
:: melatonin is my best friend at bedtime as of late.
:: wearing an oversize, cable-knit men's sweater from j. crew from like five years ago. and i still love it. (never giving it up.)
:: feeling thankful for friends who are there for me and pray during tough times. and a roommate who brings me surprise buffalo wings to cheer me up. (i cried at the sight of those buffalo wings, no joke.)
