Fill up my glass
Glass half-full: As my jeans were starting to get really too loose, I tossed them in the dryer last week post-wash (I am not usually given to machine-drying pants) and shrunk the crap out of them so that I would be able to enjoy a comfortable and attractive fit again.
Unfortunately, I don’t think that’s a technique that I can use with my work slacks, so a trip to Kim Huoy Chor is likely in order. It’s awesome to be able to pull my waistband like, a fist’s length away from my body, but it ain’t so professional.
Glass half-fuller: Tonight, I got to go on an adventure to DownTime with Shauncey. It’s like, pretty much the crappiest excuse for a wine bar on the planet, but there’s something about the place where $3 wine and a plate of chicken tenders + fries come together that just makes me LOVE it. No shame. Lest I forget, it’s always kind of inappropriately dark inside that place. And all of the tables wobble. Every.single.one. Mmmmm, classy.
Even though it’s all of 20 degrees outside (I was SO not ready to start wearing a parka?! OR covering my legs), I think I have found my December peace. There are craft brews in my fridge from The Four Firkins
, baked goods in the apartment and blankets abound. What else does a girl need?
p.s. Another week of the Grocery Shopping Challenge
starts on Saturday – it’s never too late to jump on the bandwagon! Set a limit that’s right for you and get ready to roll.
