Happy beautiful amazing wonderful Friday, friends! I feel like I’m so behind on blog reading and life and hope you’ve all had a great week. I had a somewhat garbage-y week: I’ve worked a ton, not even getting home until 9:00 Wednesday. I slept a total of one hour Wednesday night and had a four hour meeting Thursday afternoon, along with a million other things happening. But! I am off work today and looking forward to a weekend spent watching the SEC Basketball tournament! Who is ready to fill out their bracket on Sunday?! And here’s some other good things:
If you’ve been reading long, you know I’m a die-hard University of Kentucky Wildcats fan. I am so pumped for March Madness, I just hope we really pull together! No one likes to watch games with me: I cuss. I yell. I cry. I hurl the most disgusting, disturbing, terrifying comments at the television. I’m a treat. So I may find myself alone in a bar tonight for the Cat’s first game. Also, you should know: I can dish it out but I can’t take it. Please tell me my team is the greatest and I’m the most beautiful. Come noon, you can find me sipping bourbon in some Louisville bar while wearing this sweet shirt:
St. Patrick’s Day:
It should surprise no one that J and I went on our first date St. Patrick’s weekend 2008, so we always like to celebrate it! The past few years we’ve gone to the parade in Louisville, but we’re expecting flooding rain this year. I don’t do well with the crowds in perfect weather, so I think we’ll sit this one out. We’re celebrating today instead. You can bet at least one festive drink will be consumed this weekend!
I listen to podcasts while I work because it really drowns out the cube noise. I typically listen to serious, adult podcasts like Serial, but this week I discovered Bitch Sesh and I’m in love. It’s about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (my favorite Real Housewives iteration) and hosted by Casey Wilson (from Happy Endings and Marry Me) and Danielle Schneider. It is the most hilarious thing I’ve ever heard. Not for the faint of heart!
The weather has been beautiful this week so I’m behind on all of my shows, but am obsessed with Jane the Virgin and Girls this season! I also finished Fuller House last weekend and we’re four episodes in to House of Cards. And, of course, The People vs OJ Simpson. Give Sarah Paulson an Emmy, please! I bawled at this week’s episode when they just shit all over Marcia Clark. I do somewhat remember everyone making fun of her looks but good Lord, it is awful to replay. Can you imagine what she went through? I finally caught it last night and the long week and lack of sleep I just sat drinking wine and crying at the misogyny she faced.
I also started watching Happy Endings- how did I miss this show when it was on?! My sisters suggested it because they understand my sense of humor and I finally took them up on it. If you haven’t watched, get over to Hulu and do yourself a favor.
I’ve worked my tail off and have lost a little weight, so with spring around the corner, I have been treating myself to a few new pieces of clothing. I finally purchased this trench for a steal at Old Navy along with these fringe sandals. Bring on open-toe weather! I also picked up this embellished top and the UK blue peplum tee from Banana Republic. And really, that doesn’t even scratch the surface.
Thank you for the love this week and for sticking with me through this busy season! What are your St. Patrick’s weekend plans?
