It’s Friday and everyone’s in a meeting but me.

It’s Friday and everyone’s in a meeting but me.

Things that are keeping me up at night:

I wonder if any of the wedding guests will be offended or starve if we have very few (aka: maybe zero) vegetarian options?

No use crying over spilled… wine?

By all accounts, I’m a full-fledged adult…

But when Daniel and I are visiting my parents and Daniel and my 16 year old brother are playing “indoor basketball” and the ball flies directly towards me and my FULL wine glass and then said wine glass gets hit and spills…

Spills all over me, my light-colored shirt, the bed with fresh sheets I was sitting on, the carpet, blankets, etc…

You better believe I’m not above or too old for making a pact with my brother and my future husband, googling “how to remove red wine stains”, and some covert laundry ops.

I don’t watch a lot of March Madness (NBA only plz), but my good friend is earning his doctorate/teaching freshman English at Arizona and taught this guy last semester.

"Let it be known that I was sent to Arizona for one year to pass Aaron Gordon in one of his classes." was said friend’s Facebook status this morning. Haha. (He and his wife are expecting a baby and have decided to move back to Texas to be closer to family.)

From what I remember him saying, Gordon was a great student, sat in front, participated in class… so good on you, Aaron Gordon. Gonna keep an eye out. 

(PS: This kid was born in 1995 and the fact that my friend is his professor makes me feel olddddddd.)

THAT ALGEBRA 2 FLAP THO

Ooh, I can read that big center-page headline while sitting at a complete standstill in traffic because of exactly what that big giant headline is referring to!
Austin’s the best, but the infrastructure just wasn’t built in anticipation of growth like this. 🚙🚗🚕
(I’m 20 minutes late for work. I live 4.5 miles from my office and am clocking a 45 minute-and-counting commute at the moment.)

Honeymoon/Vacation Planning

For the afternoon crowd.

Helloooooo people of Tumblr.

We’re starting to think about potential locations for our post-wedding vacation (okay, honeymoon). Here’s the crux of the matter:

We’re getting married in mid-December and I don’t do cold very well. As in, I generally hate it. :)

So my first thoughts are, of…

Honeymoon/Vacation Planning

Helloooooo good people of Tumblr!

We’re starting to think about potential locations for our post-wedding vacation (okay, honeymoon). Here’s the crux of the matter:

We’re getting married in mid-December and I don’t do cold very well. As in, I generally hate it. :)

So my first thoughts are, of course, Caribbean/West Indies, Mexico, Hawaii… but even within those regions there’s soooo much to consider.
It’ll be right before the holidays, so we have a pretty tight timeframe we’re working with, but beyond that… we know nothing.

Any suggestions?
Some of our preferences:

- The warmer the better! Seriously, as close to the southern hemisphere as we can get.
- Do-able travel. (Sorry Australia, I can’t spend 4 vacation days on a plane. Although I wish I could.)
- As little effort as possible — aka: all-inclusive would be niiiiiice.
- On the water/bay/sea/ocean/would even accept lake or something.
- Don’t want to take a cruise.

We are newbies to this, as we typically have traveled to the Caribbean and Mexico with groups/our families.

Are the Sandals resorts as cheesy and lame as they used to seem?
They cater to honeymooners and what not, so it keeps popping up in Google searches.

Do real-life travel agents still exist? Is it worth using one?

Any advice y’all have would be super helpful.

My mom lost one of her best friends (of 37 years) today to some very heavy, heartbreaking stuff. 

It’s been a long road with this friend, especially in the past couple of years, and everyone tried so so hard to shoulder burdens with her and keep her in the light and I’m just so sad for my mom. This woman leaves behind a husband and three daughters in their twenties, alongside the close-knit group of friends my mom is in.

I don’t even know what to say about it, really, other than that some people have real demons to fight. My mom was by her side for a lot of it, even though they were living in different states… I can’t imagine how much it has hurt to witness. I just can’t imagine losing one of my best friends like this.

Squeeze your friends extra tight, y’all.

A woman approached me in a store and said, “Do you watch Scandal? You seem like you might. I’m trying to find an Olivia Pope wine glass!”
And I was like, “Oh yes. Yes, I do. Yes, I would love to give you my opinion.”
It was my crowning achievement for Tuesday.(The bar for Tuesdays is never very high.)
