There’s nothing like seeing yourself in a wedding dress to whip those eating habits into shape. Btw, this new eating change isn’t a diet, it’s just called “don’t be a dumbass and remember how form fitting that sucker is. Also remember how much you paid for it, and for photos of you in it.”
Shallow? Maybe. Truthful? YES.

I lent him a lot of myself but I think of him as wholly distinct from me (and also fictional.) I don’t say “I love you” on first dates, I don’t own red cowboy boots, I never got a butterfly tattoo on my lower back, I pronounce encyclopedia the same way everyone does. But I’m not all that demographically dissimilar from him: went to a small liberal arts school, moved to New York in my early 20’s, etc. In some ways Ted was like my annoying younger brother I would sometimes roll my eyes at and in other ways he was kind of a teacher for me. He’s honest and passionate, he’s intensely loyal, and he’s one of the world’s great optimists. All admirable qualities that I hope to embody.
Quote from this interview
With only a handful of episodes left, I am getting pretty sentimental about the end of HIMYM. Starting last night, I’m watching the episodes night of (and hopefully live when it comes time for the finale), and remembering how overall, I really do love this show (despite the recent years of not love/skipping episodes). Don’t worry, this won’t be the last sappy HIMYM post over the next few weeks.

Home sick. I have had a deep headache for the second day in a row that Advil only seems to cure for small amounts of time (I’m not sure if it qualifies as a migraine, though- maybe? I know it’s not a sinus headache). I tossed and turned all night and woke up in a sweat more than once- maybe I had a fever. Or maybe we should adjust the heat, however I was freezing when not fully covered, so who knows. So I’m not only achey, I’m also exhausted. SO I am at home. And i’ll do a little work this afternoon so I’m not totally drowning tomorrow, but for now I’m going to lie in bed, read a little bit, nap a little bit.. maybe watch Southern Charm (no promises).
I should stay home every Monday.

A chat between my dad and Frank
||when I'm at lunch tomorrow with your dad and uncle, maybe you should do some tasks around the house. Like clean up your closet.
||No, she shouldn't do that. She should just read. She loves reading.
|Dad always has my back! Lazy Sunday ahead!

MTV's Total Request Live
MTV’s Total Request Live was a popular music video countdown series hosted by Carson Daly that aired from 1998-2008. We’ve immortalized TRL’s legacy with this playlist of every song that hit #1 throughout the show’s history.
Pretty pleased w/ my Friday afternoon music choice.

I had a bad day at work yesterday. I woke up in a bad mood today- weird dreams, a bad night of sleep, and snow, again. To combat this, I decided to:
- Wear leggings and an oversized button up at work.
- Sit cross-legged in my chair with a blanket on my lap (if only I had a puppy, too)
- Read a lot of Internet (about HIMYM theories, weddings, vacations, things i want to buy next)
- eat chips
- not work nearly as much as I should given I just got a ton of new work to do
- plan for tomorrow to be BETTER by deciding on an early bedtime tonight and a day of no meetings and hopefully no drama.
Is it time to go home yet?

I hate bathing suit shopping a lot, but have good luck at Victoria’s Secret (though that’s the ONLY thing I buy from there). I bought the above set (in black), and didn’t feel 100% terrible when I tried it on- so therefore I like it. The top comes in bra sizes, so that helps for sizing in general, and there’s some support there because there’s underwire- but it doesn’t look too granny or bra-like like many underwire suits do.
P.S. sorry to the 2-3 male readers of my blog.
