What's Making Me Happy: Around the Web Edition

[My favorite movie theater, snapped on an unbelievably beautiful day.]

I don't know what it is - the weather, contentedness at work, good times with my husband, or something else, but lately I've been waking up every day with a smile on my face and an appreciation for the beautiful things I encounter in the day-to-day. That extends to some pretty sweet comedy that hit our collective consciousness this week - read on for more.

[This amazing Huffington Post comedy article (that you've probably seen already). It gives a whole new meaning to 'namaste.']

Per the usual, I'm overly excited for the weekend. We have dinners with friends, shopping excursions, walks around the neighborhood, and so much more planned for the upcoming two days. Have a wonderful Friday my friends and I will see you all next week!

Live Well: 1/12/13 Weekend Recap

This weekend I...


Spent Friday night out with coworkers (pictured above), significant others, and friends. It was my first time at Cha Cha Cha and I loved it!


Admired my neighborhood, like I always do on weekends.


Got a sweet new manicure. I was never the kind of girl who got her nails done until I realized 1) it only costs $10 at my nail salon, 2) it greatly reduces my incidence of hangnails, and 3) you can do fun things, like paint one finger a different color. Here I've got on OPI's Modern Girl and Berlin There Done That (a stocking stuffer from my mother-in-law!).


Ate popcorn for dinner on Saturday and continued my Oscar-nominated moviegoing by seeing Silver Linings Playbook. It was sweet, heartwarming, and funny, but I will be very confused if it takes home Best Picture at the Oscars.

Also, the sentence above makes it sound like my moviegoing is what is Oscar-nominated, which is making me laugh, so I'm not changing it and am instead pointing it out so you can laugh too.


Cleaned out and reorganized my closet. Since we only have one closet in this apartment, it's pretty necessary to do at least twice a year.

DSC_0141Worked on some new outfit posts for the blog. More on the above coming very soon to a computer screen near you!

I don't know about you, but I spent allllllllllll day yesterday engaged in the two NFL playoff games, the Golden Globes, and the new Downton Abbey episode. AND I didn't even get around to watching the Season 3 premiere of Shameless! Thank goodness for this blog - if it weren't for my need to take pictures to put on here, I wouldn't have stepped foot outside yesterday. Here's hoping that the impending endings of football season and awards season will bring me back to weekend runs and constructive hobbies like reading. Until then, I will {still} be laughing about Amy Poehler's Golden Globes "Life of Pi" joke. I wish we were friends.

Have a great Monday!
