Three Cs

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Ignore the fact that I look like a fetus in this picture. The pigtails don't do much for my "I'm a big girl now" image that I'm currently working on...

I don't like winter or anything that comes along with it (except fabulous scarves and hot chocky milk, of course). Chills. Goosebumps. Shivers. Nothing is worse than being cold, except being hungry. Being cold and hungry would be hellish.

Usually I can mostly avoid this by hibernating for the season. I stay inside as much as possible and focus on warm things, like cuddling. What I didn't know when we moved into pleasantville 2301 was being inside is worse than being outside. It's a mystery, right? I am currently wearing two pairs of leggings, two pairs of socks, jeans, two long sleeve shirts, and a jacket. My nose has been runnin' like Niagra, I can no longer feel my toes, and my lips resemble Kate Winslet's in Titanic when she whispered, "I'll never let go, Jack" right before she, ya know, let go. We have a gas heater, but neither of us can figure out how to turn it on. I thought problems like this would be avoided by marrying a mechanical engineer, but I was wrong. We just gotta learn to snuggle more.

Coconut Chocolate Cheesecake Ice Cream
That's a mouthful, a tasty mouthful. I saw this at Braum's today and may or may not have hugged a confused 15-yr-old cashier due to my excitement. I mean coconut, chocolate, and cheesecake are all things me and my thunder thighs adore... and ice cream? Ooo la la. I think I'll go fatten up as to avoid future shivering. (I realize that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, since ice cream is cold.)

Hence the plaid and pigtails pictured above. I'm obsessed with award shows. I love seeing people, famous people, get dressed up and perform. It's a comfy concert in my living room! Not to mention, I have an intense love for country music that most people don't really understand. I don't think it's really an option when you're a born-and-raised Oklahoman. I used to dream of being a super famous country singer, but Taylor Swift stole the whole blonde, blue-eyed, can't-really-sing-very-well thing from me. It's okay, we're cool.

This award show was entertaining. It was especially fun watching my husband ogle over Carrie Underwood and her perfect legs. "Babe, I'm not staring, I'm just watching the show.... You look just like her anyway!" Flattery (lies) will get you no where, my sweet.

Most of the female performers were dreadful. Don't get me started on Sara Evans, who ruined "Stronger" for me. And I'm sorry, but Carrie? Screaming is not singing. (I know because my mom had to tell me this a lot growing up when I thought I had an awessssomme voice.) And Faith Hill? Been there, done that. Give it up, grandma, you're last century's news. The real treat was Natasha Bedingfield, who I'm pretty sure pulled up all the carpet from her house and wrapped it around her body in a haphazard fashion. Do yourself a favor and google that one.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to work with Grahm on our vocals so we can be the next country power couple. Move over, Miranda and Blake.

OOO. I hate cold wintery weather! Also, love country music!

K said...

Oh my word, I am jealous of your ice cream. That sounds delicious!

Elizabeth said...

haha You are hilarious. And don't worry our place is freezing too! But it feels perfect when it's snuggle time. Getting up is the issue.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

no heater!! oh no, I would die of cold! I love that you dress up for the awards show... so cute. The red shirt is great on you.

Flutehappy said...

Hahaha, we all were commenting on her dress too, man, was that bad. Some purple sheep wants its wool back.

Snuggling is the best way to beat the cold, anyways. Also hot tea/chocolate. Good luck staying warm! :)

Sleeping bags are where it's at. This is pretty much my clothing of choice when blobbing around on the couch. And the more naked you are the better (scientifically proven, creates a nice pocket of warm air on your skin).

So not only do you get to be snuggly, but you also get to be naked. Which is so much better than anything else in the world.


*goes back and checks all your posts*

Nope. Must just be some gnarly deja vu.

Amy said...

Oh there is nothing worse than being cold! I HATE it!!

And that whole carpet skirt bit - wow! I said almost the exact same thing to Brian about it looking like she just puled up her carpet and made a "skirt" and he said it would bet it was covered in dust! haha - good times.

Jamie said...

Haha, YOU'RE cute! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! =]

I love that you keep referring to looking young as "fetus" hahaha. And yeah, I live in Montana and winter hits us full force. While it's very pretty, it gets freaking old. Icy roads and snow covered cars/frosted windshields are the worst part about it for me!

Following back! =D

wow! You are so funny! I am not a fan of the winter cold either... but I may just be spoiled by california weather compared to lots of other places. Thank goodnesssss for Cali weather... I'm not sure I could ever get used to major coldness anywhere else. Hang in there, bundle up, and enjoy your hot coco!


Laura said...

Googled it, obviously. OH. MY. GOSH.
