Team Colin

For the second year in a row, one of my all-time favorite actors is nominated for the Best Actor Oscar:

Ever since a fateful evening in 2003 when I happened to catch Bridget Jones Diary on cable, I have been obsessed with Colin Firth (fun fact--this photo is from a Bollywood website). Words can't express how happy I am that he is favored to win for my favorite movie of the year:

Here's hoping for lots of British victories tomorrow night!

Guilty Pleasure

So another trend on this blog (kind of like Throwback Thursdays, which I haven't done in 6 months, but whatevs), is going to be Guilty Pleasure Confession Time. Before you get all settled down for a Sex-and-the-City convo (and I mean when it was on HBO, not the edited version on E), I'm talking about guilty pleasures that are so silly, that when you confess them, you think that people will laugh and judge. But here I go.

I love shopping at Kohls.

Seriously. My favorite sweater is from Kohls. My guest bath towel is from Kohls (and it's my favorite towel! And it's only for guests! Bad planning!). My workout shoes are from Kohls. Some of my favorite earrings are from Kohls. I still get compliments on a sundress I bought there three years ago.But it can be the downfall of me I(and my bank account). I'll pop in for a gift for my dad and leave with a blender and heels (neither of which are for my dad, let me be clear).

Why isn't Kohls cooler? This store has EVERYTHING!! You can pretty much do all your Christmas shopping in one stop. So as the seasons change, and it's time to update my wardrobe, I will need to stop by my guilty pleasure and stock up. Care to join?

Musings from a Snow Day

I love snow, I really do. I love not having to go to work, working in comfy clothes, on my couch, with a Teen Mom marathon on in the background. But there are a few things I've realized about working from home on a snow day:

-when you hear that pipes freezing are a serious threat, your first thought is "will I still be able to flush the toilet?"
-you regret adding your number to the "Do Not Call" list, because you miss talking to live people
-while you realize that drinking alone is the first sign of alcoholism, it's also a good way to spice up your typical 10 a.m. coffee break
-The Hangover is always good background noise
-DVR is a lifesaver when a conference call conflicts with a Sex and the City marathon
-You can get lots of laundry done.
-You can clear out your DVR like whoa.
-Your boyfriend will only respond to 1 in 3 texts, b/c he's actually having a productive workday
-Egg Beaters in a mug are an acceptable lunch
-An 8 p.m. bedtime doesn't seem so crazy when you've been in your apartment all day.

Alrighty, I'm sure I'll have more to share since tomorrow is another snowpocalypse. Get excited.
