Is It Just Me?

Is it just me or does it not seem like November at all?

On my way home, I drove past those little Christmas tree/stocking/toy soldier decorations hanging off of the light posts and was so confused.  It’s been September for the past 3 months, hasn’t it?

I’m not really sure how to put this feeling into words, but I feel way less into the holiday spirit this year.  And I’m not sure why.  Halloween came and went and as much as I wanted to be into it, I just wasn’t.  Is this what being old feels like?  Because I’m not old enough to feel old!  By this point, I’m usually craving Christmas music, snowy Saturdays (where I can stay indoors all.day.long) and eggnog, but as of right now, I feel no such desire for those things.  What is happening?!

Is it just me or is this time change messing with everyone else’s workout motivation?

The sun is seriously setting as I leave work and by the time I get home it’s pitch black outside and all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch and be lazy for the rest of the night.  Help.

Is it just me or is everything about the Voice a joke?

I don’t watch but it just so happened to be on when I turned the TV on and I’m not impressed by anyone.  Including the horrible Maroon 5 performance.

Is it just me or does everyone else think every restaurant should offer baby beers?

You know, for when you need to save room for actual food.  Or if you’re Joey you get a full sized beer and a big ol’ burger and then go to a Nuggets game and spend almost the entire 4th quarter of the game standing in line for nachos.  Where does he put it?!

This was my favorite part of the game.  But really, I barely watched any of the game because I was glued to election coverage.

Is it just me or does a decked-out waffle make a Tuesday morning feel extra special?

If you don’t know the answer, then you should probably eat a decked-out waffle next Tuesday.

But for now, just go enjoy your weekend!

Do you watch the Voice?

Does it feel like the holiday season yet to you?

What are you wondering “Is it just me?” about?

Things I’m Okay With

Joey being in charge of dinner.

I’ve come to a very serious conclusion that I don’t like cooking as much as I like eating something home-cooked.  Unfortunately, it’s difficult for me to give up control of the kitchen.  Maybe that has something to do with the fact that I find onion pieces on the floor and dirty spoons sitting next to to spoon holder on top of the stove when Joey cooks.

Free grape samples at Whole Foods.

Actual fall weather.

It was cold, gray and rainy all day on Wednesday.  We wore sweaters and ordered Chinese for lunch at work.  It was awesome.

The return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

Catching up with my best friend while drinking said lattes.

 Finally being able to bottle our beer!

Riding in Joey’s dad’s new Mercedes.

It has a voice command feature but no matter how many times I said, “Buckle me” or “Drive us back to the office” it wouldn’t listen.

Emails from Joey inviting me to lunch at Chipotle.

Serious conversations had during lunch:

“Do you think my dad will buy me a Mercedes??”  Answer: No.

“Do you think you’re dad will trade cars with me for the day??”  Answer: Also no.

Eating this for breakfast all week.

Except I made them into giant muffins.  And except that all the muffin tops broke off when I tried to get them out of the pan.  And except that I glued the tops back on with frosting.  Joey still referred to them as the “Best muffins ever!”  I concur.  

Pulling the newest edition of Cooking Light out of the mailbox.

Especially when I saw the section on quick breads.  Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Bread?  I need that.  Because those muffins are going to run out at some point.  Maybe I can make the quick breads into giant muffins that are glued together with frosting, too!  Or maybe I’ve just had too much caffeine today!

Having my last day of work be earlier than expected.

They needed to shift some people around anyways, so they had someone to fill my spot right away and staying till next week seemed kind of pointless.  I’m totally okay with it because it means I get a few extra days off before starting at Joey’s office on Monday.  

Hello, 4-day weekend!
