bbq chicken

my coworker
didn't believe me
when i told her that
i typically eat candy
for dinner
because i don't
know how to cook.
"that's okay"
she said,
"just throw some chicken
in a crock pot,
pour some sauce over it
and it will be done 
by the time you get home from work - 
it's simple."
it's simple alright,
simple for everyone but me.
it's a good thing
we have cafe rio
to back us up 
on nights like these.

our latest addition

i spotted
this gem
a few months ago
at an antique store 
it was kind of pricey
so i had to resist.
when we got our 
tax return check
in the mail,
i knew just what i was going to do
with it...
i look at it 
as an investment in our future.
this bad boy came all the way
from india
and i love it.
now i just need to find stuff
to put on it.
anthro lamp shade?
definite possibility.

diet coke taste test

my bosses never believed me
when i said
there is such thing
as a 'good' and a 'bad' diet coke,
and that i could tell where it's from
based on the taste alone. 
so on friday,
we had a diet coke taste test.
i was blind folded
and drank each one through a straw.

i'd lie and say i got them all right,
but that would be a lie.
mcdonalds and the gas station...
i mixed them up.
i blame it on 
a bad brew from mcdonalds.
caitlin agreed.

if you notice...
there's a diet pepsi
in the mix -
i find it slightly insulting
that they thought
i couldn't guess that one.

his birthday
was tuesday,
and he needs to know
that he's my other half.
i love him 
more than diet coke,
chocolate donuts,
and jcrew combined
(and multiplied by infinity).
he's the funniest,
most patient,
and hardest working
person i know.
i love, love, love him.

today i spent an hour
trying to to lift him
above me
with my legs
(aka superman).
i failed,
but it was fun.
it confirmed
why i love him so much
(not that i need any convincing).

hello handsome

i'd like to pretend
that i'm a healthy eater.
i'm not.
let's be honest...
if it comes down to
eating a chobani for breakfast,
or a chocolate chocolate donut,
the donut will win.
every time.

chloee and i ran 3 miles tonight
(in the snow)
so i feel fine about it.
we're the next up and coming race runners,
i believe.
