Just some thoughts.

I feel like it's been forever since I've done a post on a Friday. Probably because it has been forever. Anyway. I don't have a whole lot to say today (famous last words), mainly because I set my alarm for 5:15 to go run (I'm working 8-430 today) annnnnnnd when I woke up it was still dark outside and freezing cold (by freezing I mean around 40 degrees) and there was just no way it was going to happen. I don't know how you fools that live anywhere other than So-Cal live. Honestly. When you're raised in this weather, you can't imagine how easy it is to get the shivers! Seriously, I was shivering uncontrollably waiting for my shower to heat up, and it took half the shower to stop!

This was def. me this morning. Source.

I'm sure none of y'all feel for me, and that's ok :) haha.

You all know how obsessed I am with Carrie Underwood. She's just freaking fabulous. Well, I watched the first half of Sound of Music last night when I got home from work before I had to go to bed, and I must say, Carrie Underwood is not an actor. But who gives a fuck. I'm tired of seeing people bashing her and the whole thing. It was supposed to be a fun family event. The music was amazing adn there's no way anyone can deny that. Basically, I think everyone needs to just STFU and be nice for once.

I'm glad she's proud of what she did. She should be. I don't really pay a whole lot of attention to tabloids and celebrity news, but as far as I know she's painfully shy. And I remember how awkward and timid she was when she was on American Idol, so I would imagine doing a LIVE THREE HOUR LONG PRODUCTION of a LEGENDARY musical was a huge leap outside of her comfort zone. Give her a break, people.

Moving on.

Tonight I'm finally going back to December Nights! It's this Christmassy festival type thing at Balboa Park (basically San Diego's version of Central Park). It's been years since I've in I was in elementary school the last time I went. Parking is always a nightmare, but it's a Kappa Delta Alumnae event and I'm super excited to go. They have (or at least they used to have) a live nativity setup, and Balboa Park also has all these little cottages that represent different countries around the world and they all open up and display their holiday traditions. It's just a really cool thing to go to and it's only 1 weekend a year, so I'm pumped! Here's some pictures I could find (since we all know I'm a terrible blogger when it comes to taking pictures--among other things--and probably will forget to take any tonight):

Do your towns do anything like that for Christmas? We usually have this along with the Holiday of Lights at the Del Mar Racetrack (horse racing), which is always AWESOME. I was so excited to go this year, and I foudn out a few weeks ago they're not doing it because they're widening the track. I'm. So. Bummed!

Anyhoo. Enough rambling. I'll leave you with two of my fav gif's from this week on What Should We Call Me:

Getting in shape--

Hope y'all had a great week, and have an even better weekend! Stay warm, my bloggy friends!

  1. Love the gifs..

    I had no idea that Balboa did all that for Christmas. It looks awesome! We have a lighting of a tree/Christmas party at the outlet malls and holiday lights all over old town Scottsdale but I think that's about it. We aren't very classy.. poor Phoenix lol
