I Have Issues

Well my low tire pressure light came on this morning.  Not sure if that’s because of the rapidly changing hot-cold-humid temperatures or because I had a nail in it almost exactly a year ago and the tire patched.  I also clipped the curb outside my house yesterday… oops. Let’s hope I don’t have a flat tire when I go out to the parking garage this afternoon.  Either way, an appointment has been made at the dealership for Saturday morning (yes I know the dealership charges more, but I trust them and they provide free rental cars if you need it).

I finally jumped back on the workout wagon yesterday afternoon and did 50 minutes of cardio split between the treadmill and ARC trainer. Titanic was on TV again.  Are they just going to play that movie once a week on E! from now on?  I pretty much picked up watching it where I left off last week, so that was cool.  I followed the cardio up with some abs on an exercise ball, push-ups, and stretching.  Done and done.

I was home, showered, and finishing dinner just in time for the return of some of my favorite shows.  Glee (yup feel free to judge and mock me), and Raising Hope.  I also watched the New Girl, which I liked an alright amount I suppose.  I can see it getting on my nerves though.  I rounded out my night of TV with SOA in bed, because that’s really the best way to watch it.

In other news, because I am a freak about many things, I’ve already started thinking about what I want to wear for my Christmas “outfit”.  Yes, Christmas gets an outfit.  Last year it was this Anthropology dress, I told you I’m a freak.  The new J. Crew catalog appeared in my mailbox the other day, and I’m sort of imagining myself in something like this.

J. Crew Toothpick Cords in Champagne

A sweater LIKE this Cashmere Cable J Crew version. One preferable not $228

These shoes, or black booties that I do not yet own

Those cords must be tried on in person though, because with a word like “toothpick” in the name, I have some doubts about my legs fitting in there.  Uh, good thing there’s like 3 months until Christmas.  Alright I’m off to go distract myself on the internet until it’s time for lunch. Later!

  1. A) My low pressure signal comes on with the change to fall temperature every year. Although bumped curbs do more damage than you’d think.

    B) I swear E! picks one movie a month and beats it to death. Case in point – I just flipped on E! and guess what’s on?

    C) Oh Thanksgiving and Christmas both get outfits. As does Christmas Eve. Thanksgiving gets fall tones, Christmas gets either red or green. And it’s never too early to start thinking about it! It’s only 3 months away!!!

    I want those shoes.

  2. I love that you plan your Christmas outfit in advance. I usually just put on whatevers already sitting in my closet. 🙂

  3. I’m still trying to up my wardrobe for fall… the idea of already planning holiday outfits is giving me hives…

    I really liked The New Girl. I like to think Zoe and I would be good friends if we hung out.

  4. I love Glee, too. No shame in the game. I also watched “The New Girl” and kind of loved it. But I have a massive girl crush on Zooey D and can do no wrong in my eyes, even if everyone else thinks she’s “hipster”.
    And planning outfits for December? Totally not weird. I may have my New Years outfit hanging in my closet all neat and pristine as we speak…

  5. Our low pressure light came on at the same time we had a bunch of grinding noises and vibration in the front of the car — $1600 later, we had shiny new brakes and a realignment! Car ownership is extremely unfulfilling.

    I love the outfit but what do you wear a Christmas outfit *for*? A party? We just wear pajamas all day. Maybe sweats later for dinner.

  6. My low tire pressure light came on the Friday before the hurricane. I thought I had to put air in my tire but no, it was a huge nail! Luckily they could just plug it. I hope in your case it’s just that you need air!

    I don’t see anything wrong with picking out a Christmas outfit now. Love those shoes! 🙂

  7. I hate tire issues! And I always take my car to the dealership. Granted it was only $60 to do so in OKC and it’s like… three times that in VA but whatever.
    I forgot to record New Girl. I plan to watch it. So excited that TV is back!
    Solid Christmas outfit choice. I’m contemplating skipping Christmas this year, so I won’t need an outfit – but I need a good Thanksgiving and New Years one so let us know about the toothpick pants.

  8. I really wanted to see New Girl last night, but totally forgot to DVR it! I really hope it turns out to be a good show. I also have holiday outfits planned out, but mostly so that I can ensure that I won’t have a waistband for big meals. Momma gotta eat. 🙂

  9. Skype yo boyfriend of something. That Sons of Anarchy comment was inappropriate for a daytime blog.

  10. I *love* when I get a new J.Crew catalog!!! I like to get way out of control with it and put post-its and notes by my favorites. Weird, I know. But too love to plan my holiday outfits (and pretty much every other outfit I wear) in advance. Nothing wrong with a little thinking ahead… 🙂
