1. Over the weekend I finally saw Crazy Stupid Love and let’s just say… why do I not live inside that movie?

2. Oddly enough, the day before I watched Dirty Dancing because it’s my favorite movie EVER. Ever ever ever. Patrick Swayze was truly my first crush and when I was 7 years old I used to make my mom “practice” the lifts with me. When she wasn’t around or was busy, I’d use the arm of the couch to hoist myself up.

3. If Ryan Gosling ever tried his big Dirty Dancing move on me I’d probably have a stroke.

4. Even though it’s been on my workout playlist for months, the Kia commercial with the rats or gerbils or hamsters or whatever the heck kind of rodents they are reignited my love for Party Rock Anthem. Those commercials make me stupidly happy.

5. Last week while shopping for after-Christmas sales, we stopped at the Cheesecake Factory and both order items off of their Skinnylicious menu. It was soooo good and didn’t force me into a food coma so I was still able to spend money on things I don’t need. Oh but Mr. How Sweet had to order a plate of chicken fingers after he ate his meal. Wish I was lying.

6. On Saturday morning I had a RED VELVE LATTE. Yes.

7. Am I the only one sort of devastated by the Katy Perry divorce? Prob. I will never learn. I mean, Jessica and Nick were the worst.

8. I’m just in love with this idea of pineapple sugarcane water. I want!

9. I’m currently attempting to reorganize my pins, especially when it comes to food. 644 left to go! Joy. Don’t I use my time wisely? I thought so.

10. Do you think my driveway will shovel itself? I’m willing it to. Like using osmosis or something. Wait, that’s not it. ESP! I’m sending the driveway ESP vibes.

11. I’m a hot mess at the moment. Minus the hot.

12. Oooh but I’m roasting a chicken tonight!

    The Dirty Dancing move would work on me, every time. I should probably re-watch Crazy Stupid Love (with my husband this time!) so that I can point that out to him.

    You have snow?! Seriously, send it my way. PLEASE! It’s January and we’ve had like no snow at all. Just a few flurries that melt before they even land on the ground. Heck, we didn’t even have snow on Christmas day and I live in Michigan…there’s almost always snow by now! So I’m totally jealous and I would totally come over and shovel snow for you. Shoveling snow gets me activity points from Weight Watchers to allow me to eat more food!

    And I love the Crazy Stupid Love monvie too, it was awesome. I felt so many emotions at once.

    just got Crazy, Stupid, Love in my mailbox today from Netflix. So excited! I am also rearranging pins… funny. A year ago, that would mean you either really loved writing or sewing… I just flipped over, out of curiousity to see how many boards/pins I have! OMG! 69 boards… for real? Ya think I obsess much? (700ish pins… must consolidate as to not look like a total freak!)
    Still get excited every time I see Tuesday Things in my inbox!
    Cheers! Happy new year.

    Shoveling the driveway. I havent thought about that dreaded task in over a decade. Ugh. I pity all you people who have to do that. Never.Again. NEVER. I hate snow. God, stay warm and I hope the drive shovels itself for you.

    And have fun with that Pinterest project. The only thing more fun is properly alphabetizing your dessert recipe index page. I’ve been there recently :)

    For years I didn’t believe people when they told me that Patrick Swayze actually sang “She’s Like the Wind”. Once I found it to be true, my love for him only intensified times, oh a billion. Also I use the phrase “This is my dance space, this is your dance space” more than one person should in a lifetime.
