1. Our amazing journey with Juan Pablo has come to a bitter
For the record, I hope Nikki kicks him to the curb and soon. Ugh. His attitude last night (and pretty much for the last month of the season) was insufferable. I wanted Clare and/or Nikki (and/or Chris, let's be honest) to slap him last night. Even though there was no slapping, I was still proud of how Clare handled herself both at the final rose ceremony and ATFR. Looks like homegirl got herself some counseling or something after she got home and realized that she deserves a lot better than that. Hopefully Nikki will be next.
Oh, and you know how my friends and I fill out pre-season brackets, guessing who'll make it through each episode and through the end of the season? They have to be entirely filled out before the season starts, so we make them based only on what info is available on ABC's webpage before the first episode airs (and no cheating or reading spoilers). Anyway. Based on their network-provided biographies this year, I'd picked Andi to win the whole season. My choice was primarily based on the fact that she's from Atlanta, she's a district attorney and therefore intelligent and driven, she's freaking gorgeous, and her favorite TV show is Scandal. That was all I needed to know to realize that she was a winner. Anyway. So I would like to argue that I actually called it. Sure, she didn't "win" Juan Pablo, but at this point we can all agree he's not much of a catch anyway. She won the honor of being the next Bachelorette and everyone in America loves her, so...let's just say I won, shall we?? Thank you, thank you...yes, I will be available for consultations with your March Madness brackets. For a small fee, of course.
2. Last night I bought and consumed some sushi (okay, California rolls. Closest I get to sushi.) from Trader Joe's.
|Source (hahaha so I just Googled "Trader Joe's California Rolls" and found this picture, right? So I went to the original webpage so that I could site the source-- proper blogging etiquette. Well it turns out that this photo is from a girl's blog back in January. Right after she talked about the sushi, she talked about the new season of Bachelor and how much she was loving JP!!! Hahahaha it all comes full circle. Now I'm compelled to go check out her more recent posts and see if she came to her senses.)|
And it was sooooo gooooood. And you know I don't endorse food very easily (hahahaha)...this was just delicious. I ate every single one of them and then felt really sad when they were gone. So anyway. If you need a cheap and easy sushi fix, I highly recommend these. Nom.
3. Speaking of things that are tasty...I made a few very minor tweaks to my morning coffee routine and IT CHANGED EVERYTHING.
I always have Starbucks (ground) coffee with almond milk in the morning. Normally I get the breakfast blend, though. And normally we get unsweetened regular almond milk (not vanilla). However, for whatever reason, we got slightly different things recently-- the Colombia blend and (unsweetened) vanilla milk. And PEOPLE. I kid you not. When you combine those two (with a tiny shake of Stevia...like...really tiny. I'll get four coffees out of that one packet) it tastes exactly like a Starbucks vanilla latte!!! Like, the kind you pay $5 for in the store. I don't know what kind of voodoo magic it is, but I'm not questioning it. My coffee went from a tasty (but slightly dull) necessity to freaking delicious, cry when it's gone. Obviously there's no foam or anything on top, but other than that...dead ringer. So...see ya later, breakfast blend! Come to mama, Colombia.
4. The weather is amaaaaaazing this week!! Actually it's probably going to be less amazing starting tomorrow, but for today I shall embrace the high of 78 and my bare legs coming out to blind everyone.
I love these shoes. Even though in this picture they make my feet look like skis...I can't really blame them. My feet are basically skis. Let's just embrace that fact. 94% of the reason I love these shoes is that they are EXTREMELY CLICKY. Like...you can hear me a mile away if I'm walking on a hard floor. It's super awesome. I associate the sound of loud and clicky heels with Very Powerful Women. I'm sure that Olivia Pope's shoes click when she walks. People respect and fear a woman who can confidently walk with very loud shoes...or maybe it's just me? But anyway, these shoes make me sound like the boss when I'm walking around and it's my favorite thing ever. The other 6% of why I like them is that they're relatively comfortable and they have a fun (but low) wedge. I usually wear them with pants, but today I felt like they could handle a dress and naked legs. We shall see.
That's all I've got. Time to go read eight billion other people's thoughts about the finale last night! Have a great (and hopefully warm and sunny (sorry Canadian readers)) day!
