drink of choice.

March 14, 2012 § 2 Comments

I hate drinking water.

I always have at least one beverage with me, many times two. In the morning (and again in the afternoon) it’s a can of Xyience.

At night it’s a wine glass of cold Coke Zero or Diet Coke (I only drink pop out of fancy dollar-store wine glasses at home).



Sometimes I’ll brew some coffee and pour in whatever Coffeemate was on sale this week.

Even though I always have a beverage with me, 99% of the time I’m severely dehydrated. Probably because my drink choices are crap (but delicious).

I’ve been trying really hard to drink more water lately, because being dehydrated means stupid headaches, fatigue and stomach aches. Even though water used to literally make me gag, I think I actually like it now – or I guess, I like how it makes me feel.

My sister gave me this cold beverage travel cup for Christmas, and I take it with me everywhere, filled with ice water. For some reason it really helps to drink out of this fancy cup.

I’m not sure I’ll ever give up pop (and definitely won’t give up Xyience), but I REALLY need to drink more water.

Anybody else hate water as much as me?

five things.

March 13, 2012 § 2 Comments

So Monday is over. I know a lot of people hate Monday but I actually like it. It’s usually a pretty easy work day for me. I’m trying to be more positive lately so here are five things I’m looking forward to this week!

1. This weeks forecast (minus the rain):

IT’S SPRING! Right? You better not snow again, Michigan…There is definitely a correlation between my mood and the weather, so warmer temps plus a little sun makes me smile.

2. Running again. Warm weather equals more running. Mainly for the endorphins; I try to get them anywhere I can.

3. The Vampire Diaries returns!!! After a three week hiatus, my favorite guilty shameless pleasure is finally back this Thursday night on the CW. I’ve been consoling myself by rewatching the series on Netlix, but I’m pumped for a fresh episode.

4. My sister is having a baby! I HOPE this week. She’s 7 days overdue already, so she better pop that baby out soon.

5. It’s our 2 year dating anniversary on Sunday! But Alex says we don’t celebrate that because we have a wedding anniversary now. Lame. I’m probably still going to celebrate by buying myself some chocolate and stuffing my face.

I wish this were real life.

In my dream last night I had a baby panda as a pet. Apparently the zookeeper gave it to me? Maybe in my dream pandas were not an endangered species.

I love pandas about as much as Kristen Bell loves sloths, so this dream was fantastic.

All I remember is that the panda was super heavy for being a toddler, and I carried him everywhere. He was a little mischievous, but otherwise well-behaved for a panda. He slept in a cage at night and that would NEVER happen in real life. He would definitely have slept in the bed between me and Alex. Duh.

I know most people don’t like to hear about dreams unless they involve them, so here are some panda memes that everyone can enjoy:

You’re welcome.
