So Cold.

Get prepared to hear me complain about being cold until at LEAST March, okay? Once it gets like this I can’t shake the feeling of being cold for months. It puts me in such a bad mood. My skin breaks out every winter from being so dry, I gain weight and become a miserable, depressed bear. Don’t you want to be around me?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The only thing keeping me sane this week besides turkey chili and my warm bed (that I don’t get to spend nearly enough time in) is that I had actual things to do with great people. Monday night after work I went out to dinner with John and some family friends to Grey Dog Cafe. Where else, right? They had never been before and they LOVED it, which means I did my job right. We indulged in a little dessert after because this place has some of the best desserts you’ll ever taste. John and I split a huge piece of pecan pie and they had the apple toffee cobbler.

We went out to dinner because afterwards I was having a little sleepover with my cute friend Sam! She is my mom’s best friends daughter and so cool. Like, I always wish I was 17 again whenever I am around her. She spent the night at my apartment so early Tuesday morning I could accompany her to the One Direction concert in Central Park where she needed an adult chaperone since her mom would be working. I was so excited! We had to get up at 4:30 am to get down to the park before 6:00 am and by the time we got there there were already THOUSANDS of people already in line. The sun hadn’t even come up yet by the time we actually got to the part of the park they played in!

It was so cold and we were out there for almost 4 hours! But it was so great to see so many girls so happy and excited that these hotties were playing their favorite music ๐Ÿ˜‰

Me and Sam!
Me and Sam!

I didn’t stop being cold all day! Or exhausted. Can’t keep up with 17 year olds!

Last night I decided to cook dinner for John. It may be weird to you that this isn’t something that I ever do (save for like 4 times over 8 years) but we don’t eat or like the same foods so it’s pretty hard. Not to mention I get home from work later than him and depending on what I ate throughout the day I often just eat some avocado toast and pass out directly after. Let’s also just call this a semi-homemade dinner. I bought aย rotisserieย chicken and made some roasted potatoes. A for effort? What counts is that it was delicious, something we both eat and he loved it. Win!

I couldn’t keep my eyes open a minute after dinner so I went to bed, with another horrible night of sleep. Not sure what’s going on but I can’t seem to stay asleep for more than 2 hours at a time before waking up, and usually with anxiety. Needless to say I am a miserable, exhausted mess for the 3rd day in a row.

Things I’m looking forward to tonight: going to Big Gay Ice Cream with John after work to get pumpkin and eggnog soft serve! It’s only being served this week and I don’t want to miss it. Then coming home to get some of tomorrow’s food prepped! Pretty stoked to host my first Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your Thanksgiving plans?

Do you cook for your significant other if you live with them?ย Some aspects of me and John’s relationship isn’t traditional and that’s why I love us. ๐Ÿ™‚
