This is my view right now.

I'm curled up on the couch {cat in lap} writing to you as I'm preparing for yet another episode of bipolar Texas weather. It's supposed to be a "wintry mix" this evening through tomorrow morning; it's forecasted to be 70* on Wednesday. Welcome to Texas. 

Friday night, Brandon and I were supposed to eat at Grimaldi's, but sushi sounded really good, so we popped in The Fish in West Village for sushi and wine. 

After supper, we saw The Iron Lady at The Magnolia Theater. One of the many reasons I love The Magnolia because they serve beer and wine, in addition to candy and popcorn. And it's not filled with teenagers getting up every five seconds, moms that refuse to take their screaming babies out of the theater, and/or people that feel the need to bring Wendy's into the theater and eat their stinky triple-meat hamburger and fries. 

{Can you tell I have major movie theater pet peeves?} 

Anyway, I loved the movie. Brandon hated it. He gets to choose the next one. :)

I spent Saturday morning cleaning and running tons of errands: CVS for prescription pick-up, Tom Thumb for groceries, Target for cleaning supplies and PetsMart to sign Oliver up for "pet daycare." 

We're not supposed to have pets and our complex is having inspections this week. So, we'll be paying $12 a day for pet daycare and literally packing Oliver a bag every morning...and packing his many, many pet accessories away each morning. Oops.

Side note: I don't know how you moms do it! I'm hyperventliating thinking about Oliver at "daycare" all day and praying he won't hate me when I pick him up. Brandon tells me I'm insane. 

I practiced painting my nails by myself for the first time in about a year. We're aiming to purchase a house this time next year and I'm trying to cut costs wherever I can. And? I was getting a gel manicure every 2-3 weeks and my nails have been completely ruined by the gel. Loved that the polish lasted so long, but hate that my nails are now weak, thin and peel-y. 

I think I did pretty well on my home manicure, if I do say so myself! 

{This is Essie "Lady Like." I love Essie nail polish!} 

I'll be honest: we skipped church today. Brandon had a major headache and I was just tired and achy. So, we did yoga together and then curled up on the couch with DVR'd shows, heated up leftovers for lunch and spent time with our little Ollie before he goes to daycare this week. Brandon did a little work, I did laundry, and we're going to pick up husband's car from the tire shop {yes, we just had to pay for new brakes, new brake pads and four new tires for his Jeep yesterday...ouch!} before this "wintry mix" hits. 

Happy {cozy} Sunday. Stay warm!

  1. I can't do daycare with my girls and I get anxious taking Trudy to get groomed... So I understand! Glad you said that about the gel manis because I've been seriously thinking about it but didn't want it to ruin my nails. Crisis averted!
