My dad likes to scan and send old photos

Usually they are pretty cute but sometimes they are just sad. 

Today, it was the latter:

Dream Jobzzz

Can I just hang out with Ryan all day? Can someone pay me to do that? Can I pay me to do that? 

There is a couple who is giving away a restaurant in Santa Barbara and I would totally apply but there are already some NYC hotshots who applied and I don’t know the first thing about a restaurant. Other than that it could be really fun.  And hard, but mostly fun.

Ryan and I need to work together.  Our strengths are totally aligned and we work so insanely well together. This is not a newlywed talking about how she would like to hang out with her husband and cuddle all day and watch Netflix (although if someone would like to pay us to do that, I am okay with that, too) but what I’m really talking about is working—really, hard work—that we can navigate together.

I’m mulling some things around (and have some options) but what say you?

Weekend Recap

Friday: took Mel to the emergency vet at 10:00 pm. You know the rest of the story.$$$$$$ (He is fine for now; we need to retest in two weeks.)

Saturday: picked Mel up from the vet, and according to Herman, brought home a totally asshole foreign cat who he had definitely not been raised with and was definitely not his brother, so it was essential to hiss, growl and smack Mel for the next 48 hours. Ryan and I followed them around the house the entire time to make sure there were no casualties.

Sunday: We saw Draft Day in the super fancy theatre, where you sit in a recliner that goes allllllllll the way back and press buttons to make your peasents bring food and booze.  It was all very good.

Sunday, later: started mindlessly eating a DELICIOUS sweet and wonderful watermelon (which I have a known mild allergy to—actually most fruits and vegetables) until the itching in and around my face area was unbareable and my throat started closing. This, I came to understand, is anaphylaxis and even though I had temporary laryngitis voice that was squaky and hilarious, it is not as funny today when I am still itchy and my chest is bumpy and feel like like I died and came back.

Hawaii!

Last week/yesterday I was NOT excited for this business trip to Hawaii because duh, I’m stressed out of my mind on the reg—without having to support another business line’s event—but now that I’m at the airport (up at 4:00 am, by the way) I’m pretty excited to head on over, have a great event around my favorite content, make some sales, and visit a (very pregnant) friend from college.

Oh, and put my toes in that warm, perfect sand.

I love all these dresses but the one on the far right is a touch too short for the office. Keep it or…?

Left: Fit-and-flare dress (available in Fuschia, WInter Sea (it’s teal…) and black), $89.99

Center: Navy Colorblock Light Wool Sheath Dress, $139.99

Right: Black Lightweight Wool Peplem dress (tempted to take mine back and get a regular instead of a petite size), $89.99

This little valley has seen me at my darkest days, the days where I didn’t think I’d make it out alive. The late nights, the fast cars, night swims, and laughter. But it also where I found a once in a lifetime love, and my best friends, too. 

Yes, living 30 minutes from the action of Hollywood can seem annoying driving back from a concert at midnight, but in the minutes where I climb the Santa Monica mountains and can catch a sunset (the hills keep the smog at bay in LA proper), I am glad we chose to make this our home after college.

We’ll be resigning our lease for another year (Jesus, how have we lived here a year?!). It’s bittersweet, because I had big dreams of quiet flats and parks and bikes but we’re young. We need time to build this foundation to our life. It’s the right thing.

It’s the right place.

Today holds a lot of promise (whispery things) and I’m hoping that wearing my grandma’s delicate necklace and coworker’s gift of this AMAZING Gryffindor scarf from Harry Potter World will bring good luck.  Also, yesterday I left work feeling more energized then when I came in the morning.  That’s how you know you’re in the work sweet spot—not overwhleming, but challenged, and the feeling that progress is being made. It’s good. I haven’t been here for a few months, so it was much needed.
Sorry you have a giant picture of my face on your dashboard.  If someone wants to tell me how to resize my photos so their less annoying, please feel free.

Monday/no work thoughts

When an Ina Garten recipe calls for “chicken stock, preferably homemade”, I just imagine her judging me for the rest of the recipe after I use my can of bouillon from the fridge. You know the judging Ina face (Erich, help me out here…). I feel uneasy, even when the recipe comes out delicious. I’m sorry, Ina, for I have sinned. It has been three months since my last homemade stock. I will pray over your latest cookbook as repentance.

House of Cards, guys. HOUSE OF FUCKING CARDS. If you didn’t use your three day weekend to binge watch the series, I don’t know if I can be friends. Well, we can… if you pull an all-nighter to catch up. Tonight. Ugh CLAIREFRANKREMYTUSKFENG.

I’m not sure if I’m playing Duolingo to learn a language or to meet my daily points goals so the owl I dressed in a smoking suit will tell me I’ve advanced to the next level. Not really sure if I care either way. Est bonne?

I finished “Me Before You” and wasn’t as invested in the characters as you guys. I’m just as surprised as you are, because give me a story set in the fucking idyllic English countryside and I’m usually sold. I mean, I was very sad, mostly, throughout but I think I’m still raw from a one-two punch from “A Constellation of Vital…” and “11.22.63” and can’t really grip on to anything that feels less weighty.

My pot pies were delicious. No one talks about me on GOMI. I haven’t been sleeping well. These aren’t related, but I thought all were important enough to share.

Ya’ll. This is the real deal. I have been using a ultra-hydrating (or so it claimed) Murad moisturizer for about a year and  I ran out on Saturday. I dragged Ryan to Nordstrom because I had to pick up some Bobbi Brown for my mom so I started to inquire about what the cosmetologist’s thoughts were around something new for me.

I had a gift card so I made out with this little beauty solely because it felt so different from the cream I’ve used in the past. Guys. I’ve worn this for only five days and I’m considering marrying it. It’s so moisturizing (without being greasy!) and has totally smoothed out my complexion. Like… noticeable difference. In five days. Also, I’m super stingy with my moisturizer because damned if I don’t get my money worth out of these little pots. I’ve hardly worn even my bare minerals foundation this week which makes me happy because I really don’t like wearing anything but my mascara and blush. 

So to recap, all signs point to you going to buy this moisturizer you need. Now.

Mission: 2013 self evaluation. 
How many bellinis will it take?

(I am over the gin and beer we have. If you’re wondering how I ended up here: I only had Chandon and mandarins. I’m not in a position to be much more creative than that.)
