week in review - january week 5

1.  looked at a lot of shoes online...

Shoe Blues go with this dress:

Adrift on a Cloud Dress

2.  mark joined me for lunch one day...

... and we had panera.. yummers.  i've been ordering the fontina grilled cheese and tomato soup on the regular, but the sandwich needs a touch more flavor.  i usually salt it.  next time i go i'm going to see if the big kid grilled cheese is still on offer.. that one has bacon and a different mix of cheeses.  the soup is delicious and tastes almost like a tomato sauce with a hint of red pepper than your usual creamy soup.

3.  returned some stuff to target...


and re-bought them online during their 2-day 20% off sale.  hooray!

4.  discovered a new favorite on netflix:

he's kind of a genius. mark and i cracked up so many times watching this.  and with his neuroses, attitude, and ways of thinking, could be a long lost relative of either mark or me. or both.  (i don't think we're related, but you never know.)  i'm so glad we have more episodes to watch.

5. watched a cute movie...

...while writing this post.  i didn't expect it to be so cute and entertaining, but it was worth watching.  i'm a little confused about how they got away from the [spoiler], but i'm not gonna think too hard about a kid's movie.

6.  finished one book...

...and started another.

i've read the first maybe 7 or 8 times, but i think i've only read the second once.  which is nice for a change.  (i'm a voracious re-reader.. i like what i like.  and you can't always get to the library at 11 pm, you know?)

7. had my shoe size beliefs challenged..

i'm still not sure how i fit my size 10s into these blowfish size 7s, but it's cool.  they were on clearance for $5 and i almost bought them just on principle, but they really were too uncomfortable to wear for doing.. anything. 

8.  picked up some fun tweezerman harajuku lovers items..

Harajuku Lovers Tweezerman

i have some of the emery boards, but at $2 a pop it's hard not to take advantage and stock up.  (i also have some full-size ones, which i like, and some mini tweezers, which are amazing.  seriously.. tweezerman.. buy them.)

 9. observed wildlife in it's natural habitat...

(i did that vertical filming thing.. i'm sorry.  so shame. much apologies.)

wish i had had my real camera!

the median of a side street i commute home through.. this little guy (my mom studied ornithology and between that and the internet, we decided it's probably an immature cooper's hawk) didn't give two hoots i was filming him from the car 4 feet away.  (hoots.  haha.)  he was too busy picking at his (what i assumed were) varmint vittles.

10.  snow day

ugh.  i should have thought this list out better; i wouldn't have ended with this one.  i used to love snow.  being in so cal i'd only get it when i'd go to albuquerque for the xmas holidays or when we'd go up to big bear to ski.  now that i've had to live with it for a few years, i'm totally over it.  it's pretty when it's falling.  and i'm at home snugged up on the couch.  and that's about it. 

this was pretty much my drive into work.

i kid.. it wasn't too bad except on my street.  i slid a little going into work.  but i was a little annoyed that work didn't delay opening or at least let us wear jeans.  c'est la vie.

they're predicting more for next week.

i say no.

what did everyone else do this week?
