on some things that I couldn't exactly dedicate an entire blog post to, but feel the need to mention anyway...

1. I've started running again. Except that I apparently felt invincible last week and felt the need to do my 2.5 mile run four days in a row, which has rendered my calves completely useless. I tried going out for a run this morning, thinking that the three day break would have healed my ravaged body, but was horribly wrong. I arrived home today (after running/walking/staggering for about forty minutes) looking like the blond equivalent to Amy Winehouse after a long night of binge drinking. Plainly put, I was a hot mess. (But I like to think my hair was slightly more attractive. Just saying.)

2. For the last couple weeks, whenever "There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays" by Perry Como starts playing on my iPod, I haven't been able to turn it off. That song feels like a hug. I don't care that it's only June; I love me some Perry.

3. The TV show Dexter owns my life. (The fact that it is probably feeding my paranoia of being murdered then chopped to bits is aside the point.)

4. I wonder if my husband will ever stop acting surprised when he finds half-empty bottles of wine in the fridge. Because, seriously. I have no shame, and he should know that by now.

5. Speaking of my husband, he told me that he was at the film festival meeting yesterday, and someone mentioned my blog. To which I responded, "WHAT. That is freaking awesome. I kind of like these film festival people a little more now. Also, I love that yet another stranger reads my blog more than my own husband." So, this is my little shout-out to the peeps over at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Next time I see any of you, I'm totally going to wig out, because I'll wonder if you've been reading my blog, and I'll be all, "GET OUT OF MY HEAD!" (But in a good way.) Also, thank you for not making me deal with another Australian Peach incident this year at the festival. Much obliged.

6. And to continue speaking of my husband, I love days where my husband is the sexiest thing in the entire world to me, and I get those same giddy feelings I used to get back when I only dreamed of being able to hold his hand. Those days? Well, let's just say that they are the best. And they remind me of why we got married in the first place, and how I have no doubt I'll be with him until I'm old and gray and probably a little crazy.

  2. My sister may have possibly been the one to mention your blog at the meeting (I'm not sure cause I wasn't there) only because she and I talk about it a lot because we both love it and think you are kind of awesome.

    Sorry if that is kind of weird. We usually just say "So did you read wishcake today?" or actually my sister said this on the phone to me today "Wishcake? her twitter about the toothpaste and 'I shake my fist at you!' didn't you find that hilarious?"

    I did find that hilarious mostly because my fiance says "shake your fist at them" only like every other day. It's kinda his thing so your twitter had us both laughing.

    Anyway... we are not creepy stalkers we just think you are a rockstar. :)

  3. At least you possess enough class to leave half-empty bottles, as opposed to mine which are just, well, totally empty.

  4. Haha, I'd lose my damn mind if my boyfriend was in the room with some hottie and got to see her boobs. Good for the cute actress for being good at girl code.

    Also, at least Jay finds half-empty wine bottles, as opposed to totally empty ones, because...that's basically my house.

  5. Wow. You are living the dream. :)

    Booyah.

  6. You have to be one of my favorites! (I'm so cheesy) but I love your blog!

  7. Okay, I feel better about my white wine habits now!

    I love those married moments too, best ever!

  8. This is going to sound incredibly weird, but I'd find it amusing if someone told me this about myself so...

    I went to sleep last night shortly after reading some blogs, including yours. And then I had a dream that I ran into you at my neighborhood coffee shop. After about 10 minutes, we were basically best friends, and we talked about all the blogs that we read.

    So yeah, that was my creepy blog comment of the day. To counteract the weirdness of that, I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog! And great job starting running again!

  10. #6 is so cute. It's only been 8 months for my relationship and I still get that feeling but it's great to know that it can last :).

  11. Please. I love Christmas music. I'm not afraid to admit that on more than one occasion I've listened to Christmas music at an inappropriate time (read: any month not covered in snow)! And I'll do it again, too!

  12. I never run two days in a row. It's a total ticket to burn out pour moi.

    Every other day at MOST for me - it's worked for the past 8 years (uh, off and on, of course).

    I also read somewhere that you should always walk for a few minutes at the end of your run so that you don't only associate running with sweat, hard, ugh!

    Okay, enough running talk. :)

  13. Point 6 just made me melt.

  14. That's so cute that they talked about your blog in their meeting. You're famous! If someone said that to me, I'd be sooo embarrassed. Hm. Maybe that says something about me/my blog?

    Also, I have a half empty bottle of $5 Trader Joe's wine (3 Pinos, if you must know) in my fridge right now. Among other alcoholic things.

    #6 makes me happy to hear!

  15. I get on a running high sometimes to and always regret it.

  16. You're not alone on the holiday music - just yesterday I was working out to "All I want for Christmas".

  17. seriously, the way you talk about your husband just makes me smile. you are just so full of happiness and i love it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. could you BE any cuter? :) I miss you, lovely and reading this just made me smile! That's kind of awesome you have strangers talking about your blog - I hope to be at that caliber one day! And I'm with HP... there are few half-bottles in my fridge because I typically manage to take them down :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow, I totally admire your dedication to running! And being a hot mess? Ha haha - that's awesome. I'm sure you had much attractive hair :)

  20. I can't remember whose site I was on, when I found the link to yours but - I'm HOOKED. I love your writing, you're too cute!! :)

  21. DEXTER = love. I think it's making me paranoid too. But he's such a nice serial killer!

    Also how weird is it that the actor who plays Dex and the one who plays Deb are dating in real life?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Okay, fine, I'll start running again. Jeez.

    Right after I finish this bottle of wine..

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is so cute about your husband! Love it! :)

  24. Half empty bottles of wine? Yes, please.
    Running & looking like a hot mess? That's what I look like as of late.
    The warm fuzzy feelings you get when you see the man of your dreams? The best.
    Me? I liked this post a lot!

  25. I think you're too cute. I need to start watching Dexter since everyone's raving about it so much. I saw the first two episodes so maybe this weekend I'll start watching again.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Just another post that proves we could honestly be sisters from another mister. We are too much alike, only, well you are way more awesome, and pretty, and funny, and okay now I'm starting to feel like crap. HAH, you're the best.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You are so cute about your husband, number 6 just made my heart melt.

    Oh and the half-empty bottles of wine, that is SO me too... but sometimes I will make it through a whole one which then you will find sitting on the ground next to my bed - woops!

  28. Congrats on getting your run-on, lady! Dang, I really need to get my butt to the gym! Hope your calves have recovered! Ouchie!

    Aw, I always used to listen to Christmas music year round! Love it.

    Dang girl, you're famous! That's so fun! Haha, I loved the Australian peach incident of last year. Yikes, so awkward! Can't believe it's been a year since then! Crazy!

    Your no. 6 is so cute! You guys are adorable!

  29. Running! I need to start doing that, but I have absolutely NO motivation. What got you going again?

    I love the last point. So much. Those early days and the happiness to simply hold someone's hand is the absolute BEST. So cute.

  30. am currently pretending I did not get reminded of Dexter and am trying to resist putting it on the TV. Sometimes I just like to see his face okay? Is that bad?

    and running........ umm you rock and I need to get on it again.
