Last night’s anniversaray festivities were fantastic! We got dressed up and went to Bamonte’s (great italian food). I wore 3 inch heels (bad idea) which resulted in mike carring me over his shoulder for a few blocks. We split a bottle of wine and our food was delicious! We drunkenly stumbled home, ate red velvet cupcakes from Crumbs and drank some fancy shmancy champagne that we got as a gift for our wedding!
The night ended with us watching Baby Mama and eating MORE cupcakes. It was wonderful.
Heyyyyyy, Mr. Anxiety! I hear you’re trying to creep back into my head and cripple my waking existence! I’m ready for you this time! I’m not afraid of you or your latent fears of nonbeing! I’m going to stop drinking coffee! I’m going to avoid situations that cause me unnecessary stress! I’m going to take up yoga again! Suck on that, my friend! Exclamations abound!
Exactly why I stopped drinking it. I’ve been coffee-free for 14 months and I feel SO MUCH BETTER. I was a wreck. Take a yoga class and make somebody go with you to be your buddy and push you to go! Also buy some meditation DVDs. You will not regret it.
I LIKE to think that I’m not the only person in her mid 20’s who lives paycheck to paycheck and doesn’t have a savings account. Anybody…?
I move five hundred clams from checking to savings every month. I’m trying to build up a little nest egg to use for a down payment on a house when the market really bottoms out, OR (option B) to pack one suitcase and move to New Zealand without telling anyone. Oops! I’ve said too much. It’s nice to have a little bit put aside so when things come up like “cat has urinary tract infection” or “buying year’s supply of contacts to widen the dating pool,” I’m covered. I don’t think you should worry about it though. I, on the other hand, really like the idea of liking New Zealand.
Maaaaannn… I gotta move out of the moneypit, aka NYC. But I don’t think that’s the real problem. Cutting down spending on makeup, clothes, bubble tea, and Lush MIGHT help. hmmm… MIGHT.
I’ve been on the verge of a gigantic sneeze all morning. But it won’t come out! I am doing my best to keep from getting sick but EVERYONE around me is… so i’ve been drinking a lot of tea, emergen-c, sucking on zinc losenges, and making sure I take my daily vitamin. Oh and eating soup for lunch! It seems to be working… knock on wood.
I can’t help it! When my parents are visiting, they feed me, and we like to eat! (let it be noted that my parents both exercise daily, are trim and healthy, and look about 10 years younger than they really are)
So, since friday night i’ve had:
half a bag of peppermint patties
pomme frites (next to toy tokyo, you know what’s up)
rice to riches (heart attack inducing rice pudding)
Vodka Rigatoni in Little Italy
a LOT of beer
home made peanut butter cookies
awesome homemade bread from a restaurant back home
a huge brunch with eggs and home fries etc.
like an entire bag of raisinettes
cheese and crackers
WHEW! and they aren’t leaving until tomorrow! I wonder what delights we shall consume tonight…
