Thank goodness for this link-up that just lets me tell you what's been going on lately.
I spent January working to declutter with Stephanie. I got rid of 235 items, which isn't too bad. A lot of that was or will be donated, a big bag is being saved for my niece, and a few things were or will be sold. Not too shabby. I learned that getting rid of a gift doesn't mean I don't like the giver, I need to not accept things just because they're free, and that if something has outlived its use, it's okay to let go. It really was a challenge for me and hopefully now, I'll be more mindful of the stuff I bring in my house.
Speaking of bringing stuff into my house... I can't get enough of thrifting these days. A friend introduced me to a thrift outlet which has clothes for $2 or less. I have found some awesome deals (Ann Taylor! Boden!) and just started selling things on Poshmark. Since the thrift outlet doesn't have dressing rooms, it will be a great way to get rid of all of my cheap finds that don't fit correctly once I get them home and it will justify my newest addiction. Also, Poshmark is weirdly addictive and kind of fun... if you want a code for a $10 credit, let me know.
Oh yeah, and we need to talk about Gilmore Girls. It's finally, officially coming back (!!!) and if it debuts on a weekday, then I will probably just have to take that day off and have a marathon. I'm more excited than anything, but also a little nervous that it will never live up to what the fans think it could and should be. I just read that Finn will be back so that has to mean that Logan will be too, right? He's still my favorite.
As far as food is concerned, I've enjoyed many good meals but instagrammed none. I feel way too much instagram pressure and I know I shouldn't care, but I do. Nonetheless, the biscuits and gravy at Kitchen 713 have my egg hating self changing my tune just a little and make me dream of going there again ASAP.
And TV.. I have given up on New Girl, officially. I think it peaked in season two and has been straight downhill ever since. Except for Winston's cat. Give him a show. I'm loving Younger and need to get Showtime again to catch up on Shameless. I also started Billions during a free weekend and it was good... I mean, who doesn't love Brody from Homeland?
This weekend will be a super quick (less than 48 hour!) trip to Atlanta for my sister in law's engagement party and rushing home in time for the Super Bowl. Tell me - what's new with you?
