Spring is here! I know, the first day of Spring was actually last week on March 20th, but now it is actually beginning to feel like Spring. At least in Southern California. I have officially stored away the winter clothes, and released my warm weather items from hibernation – tank tops, shirts, dresses, slippers (or what you non-Hawaiians oddly refer to as “flip flops”), sunglasses. It’s been a lovely, sun-filled week, and I’ve been finding all sorts of excuses to walk around outside just to take it in.
I’ve also been spending lots of quality time this week with the sewing machine. Partly it’s because I needed to hem and take-in most of my clothes (the one minor downside to losing weight). But mostly it was to make a dress, which I’ll post about later. Yes, I sewed a dress. I am that cool.
In the last 24 hours, I have injured myself three different times. First, I was moving our portable washing machine, and ran it over my foot, creating a huge gash in my toe. Then I sliced my finger while chopping onions for dinner. Then I cut open my other foot when I dropped a table onto it. Sighhh. I think I need to just sit down and watch Top Chef reruns for the rest of the day before I accidentally give myself a concussion or something.
Speaking of Top Chef…holy moly, that is the best show EVER. I just discovered it during my hour at the gym (aka Trashy TV Time). I know everyone else is probably way more into American Idol and Project Runway these days, but competitive cooking…who knew?!
This weekend we’re going to take a trip with Steve’s sister and brother-in-law to Las Vegas. My husband has a gift for finding crazy-awesome vacation deals, and found a way for us to go for uber cheap. I can already smell the cigarettes and complimentary cocktails. Send me some good poker vibes!
