Refrigerators must hate me!

Seriously, something is going on with me and refrigerators. Last week the one in my old place dies on me. Then I move into my new place this weekend and the one there is leaking! To top it off, the towels I used to mop up the water took 3 cycles and over 3 hours to dry in the dryer. So I'm thinking the dryer isn't working either. I'm about to give up on all appliances!

Other than that, I'm happy to be settled in my new digs and done with packing :)

Rainbow Colored Freezer

This week has been tough. I'm moving on Saturday so I've been busy everyday packing and moving stuff into the new place. On top of that, I live on the third floor and am moving onto the 3rd floor. Definitely no need to go to the gym this week...I'm huffing and puffing going up and down all the stairs :)

So this afternoon I took a break from the boxes and packing tape to get some lunch and when I went into my freezer it looked like a rainbow had died inside of it!

Turns out that sometime during the day the refrigerator stopped working and my grape, strawberry, and orange flavored popsicles had melted all over everything in it!

Guess this means I don't have to defrost the frig before moving out, huh? lol.

Friday the 13th

Just another day or a jinx?

I always think, eh it's just another day and go about my business. So today, without even giving it a second thought, I signed the lease on my new apartment and got a hair cut.

Well I hate the haircut and I lost my keys at the new apartment and was locked out of my car. UGH!

I eventually found the car keys in the apartment in the midst of all the clothes I had attempted to stack nicely in my new closet. And I know my hair will eventually grow back. But still, next Friday the 13th I'm staying away from hair salons and keeping a close eye on where I set my keys down.

THE WORST SITCOMS EVER?

So TV.PopCrunch.com says the shows below are the 25 worst sitcoms ever and I say NO WAY!!!

Maybe I'm just nostalgic about shows that I grew up watching but Mr. Belvedere and Family Matters- they're classics! Urkel had the whole world saying "Did I do that?" Come to think of it, maybe I wish Family Matters hadn't given us that saying lol.

And Perfect Strangers?! I loved Balky and that silly handshake/dance they did when one would jump into the other ones arms. I was also hooked on My Two Dads and Small Wonder. I may have been the only one hooked on those though, I'll admit it. My love of bad tv started at a young age :)

Wedding Overwhelm

Well the wedding planning is starting to really kick off but I keep finding myself going in a million different directions. I try to focus on one thing but somehow get sidetracked with thoughts of "what about favors" "when should I start dress shopping" "HOW much is that going to cost?!" It's not even 'til next June and I'm already going a little nuts!

When we met with a caterer today I thought it would just be a preliminary meeting. Find out their different options and then how much those options would rob us of our money. You know, the usual. But they wanted to know our exact menu, then what kind of cake we wanted, what type of flowers we were thinking of and the colors. AAAH I don't know any of this yet! I'm trying to take it one thing at a time but I can't seem to get rid of the desire to do everything at once. It's wedding overwhelm already and I'm bringing it on myself. Help!

A Cookie Heaven

Ok so I've been trying to eat a little better. Cut back on sweets, maybe have a hershey kiss instead of a hershey bar. Fruit instead of chips. It's a mixture of wanting to feel better and have more energy...and thinking about putting on a wedding dress in a year. But tonight the temptation is way too high. I walked into the kitchen at work to find this!



And that's only half of it! There are 4 other containers filled to the brim with homemade chocolate chip, peanut butter, sugar and snickerdoodle cookies. AND brownies! AND rice krispy treats! It's either cookie heaven in here or dieter's hell. I'm going with cookie heaven and forgetting that stupid diet...for at least tonight :)
