things over here

Here are some things that made me happy this week:

1. When we found out it was going to snow pretty severely we went to the store to stock up on some necessities. Because I wasn't sure we'd be able to drive out truck in between here and Friday, I stocked up on wine, because on Friday grades come out and, lesbehonest, I'm probably gonna need some wine.

2. We got a new fridge!!! I can't even explain how much we needed a new fridge. The old one had very little room and a "freezer" inside the fridge, which didn't really keep things solidly frozen and was constantly freezing over so Dan would, graciously, turn the fridge off and clean it all out and put everything back it, like twice a month. I mean, I liked the kinda vintage thing it had going but not at the price of functionality! PLUS, we can fit about double the amount of stuff in the freezer, which means extra ice cream on hand, duh.

3. We went to watch the 49er game at a bar in D.C. with some of my law school friends. I've been really lucky to meet the people I have at this school. Most people aren't as crazy as you'd think for law students, and I kinda like them.

4. We went for a walk in the snow on snow day! Dan didn't have work. I didn't have school. It was glorious. We were on cloud nine for a four-day weekend.

5. Also, this photo of Athena. She's yawning but it looks like she's laughing in the face of the blizzard. She's a badass.

Happy Thursday!

    I know it's still snowing over there but I saw this and totally thought of you!!! It's a PDF sewing pattern for a bombshell bathing suit: https://www.etsy.com/listing/153333289/bombshell-swimsuit-bathing-suit-pdf?ref=shop_home_active_1

  2. Ha! Your name is cracking me up. That suit is so cute! I've never thought about sewing a swimsuit but that one is making me think twice :)

  3. I'm glad someone is on the same 60s wavelength with me! :)
