Christmas Eve Eve

It's negative two degrees outside right now.

NEGATIVE TWO degrees! And that doesn't even factor in the windchill, folks! 

It's times like this that I miss living in Louisiana. This time last year, we were eating frozen yogurt on the patio. This nostalgia only lasts about 40 seconds until I remember all the things I hated about Louisiana, of course, but this cold still makes me miss it just a little.

The only time I left the house today was to drive my cousin and her boyfriend to the airport, and that didn't even require a bra (thank God). When it's cold like this, there's nothing I enjoy more than lounging around in a hoodie and sweatpants. When I absolutely have to leave the house, I've taken to putting my boots on over my slipper socks to keep warm.

Even my dogs are hibernating from the cold. My lab pooped all over the stairs not 20 minutes after I took him out... Just as we were about to eat dinner. Apparently, it was too cold to poop outside? There's nothing like picking up dog poop to spoil your appetite. (Okay, let's be real... I still ate dinner. Nothing has the power to turn me completely off from food, although I'd love to find something that could!)

Luckily, my bear-like state (you know... cuz I'm hibernating... and because I can't remember when I last shaved my legs) has given me time to discover the greatness that is Orange is the New Black on Netflix last night. Have you jumped on this bandwagon yet?!

After being glued to my laptop screen for ten episodes in a row, I think it's safe to say that I'm officially hooked. I'm fascinated by prison life and find myself wondering if I would be as clueless as Piper if I ever found myself behind bars. I watch all the characters and ask myself who I would be... and then I remember that I don't want to be any of them because between you and me, I don't think I could hack it in prison. I'll just enjoy the show instead. 

I LOVE winter break!!


  1. Negative Two? Heck no! I think I finished Orange is the New Black in one day. I'm like that with Netflix though. I get sucked in and can't pull myself out. I just started White Collar. It's's not Gossip Girl or One Tree Hill, but it will have to do for now. I'm all out of the teeny bopper shows. :(
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  2. Negative two? Yikes! It's 30 here in NY, and I was complaining about that.
    Orange is the New Black is on my long list called, "'Shows I Would Love to Watch, but am Afraid to Get Hooked On."
    Merry Christmas!
