Well, sort of. When I left off yesterday, I had three goals for myself:
1. Wait patiently for Ryne to get back from the golf course. This is probably the first time that I wasn’t all “OMG you’ve been gone for TEN YEARS!” Maddux slept for three hours straight while he was gone and woke up right when he walked in the door. Three hours of peace and quiet is pretty magical.
2. Go do something fun with Maddux. We played with a freaking pig! I mean, granted, this was probably more fun for me than it was for him but I’m totally calling it a win. Our neighbors have a pig. It’s the same house that set off the fireworks really late the other night. I wholeheartedly forgive them. Anyone that owns a pig is my new favorite person. And, just as I suspected, they were out of town when their son raved in the street all night. We’re definitely besties now.
3. Grill something for dinner. This was a half-win. Ryne grilled ribs for himself but forgot to put my veggies on. I’m still a little sour over it. I had a salad with every single topping we own + a Costco-sized portion of shrimp cocktail. I’m pretty much a baller, eating party platters for dinner.
Today, it kept getting better and better.
I got to attend my favorite Saturday morning workout: barre! Side note: this is my face in response to seeing a lady light up a cigarette mere moments after stepping out of class. If you see me make this face, I’m judging you or someone in our general vicinity.
After class, I called Ryne and asked he if wanted me to bring anything home. I always secretly cross my fingers that he’ll say yes to that question. It’s a crap shoot, really. Today, though, the stars aligned and he wanted something, too. PS: If your significant other says they want something first, then it isn’t your fault y’all are spending money. It’s like, a scientific fact. You’re just doing them a favor, really. Oh, and I got the same bagel I got the last time I went to Einsteins but without fart-sented mushrooms.
The rest of the day was spent finishing up some baby-proofing. While I was out, I kind of grabbed a little something for myself. Remember when I tossed around the idea of quitting my coffee habit? Well, as you can see, I made a final decision. Plus, this one makes tea and hot chocolate, so it’s innocent enough.
Funny story. I bought this V500 first, which is the cheaper Vue. The guy told me that the little reusable cup would work in it. I got home and read the package. It said it was to be used in the V600 or V700 only. Well, I had to test that theory, ya know? So I opened it up and plopped it into the machine. I definitely broke it within seconds of having it in the house. Bless the sweet people at Bed, Bath, and Beyond (or BB&B if you’re hip). It was technically their fault, but I’m glad they just let me bring it back without bugging me about it. I ended up bringing some coupons back with me, too, so I got the upgraded V700 for only 19 more dollars than I paid for the V500. Basically, my stupidity actually helped me for once. Yippee!
Oh, I’ve already used it. I’m super jacked up on caffeine right now and it’s almost 9pm. This is going to end well, right? Tomorrow I’m going to make fancy-pants lattes with it. Can you handle the excitement? I know. ME EITHER.
Right now one of friends is headed over for wine and gossip. 😉 Let’s just say the last thing I need is a glass of wine, but I doubt that’s going to stop me. Is this one of those go big or go home moments people are always talking about? Wine or bust!
I know this post is getting really awkward at this point, so I’ll cut it short. I hope y’all are having a great weekend!
Question: Anyone own a Kuerig Vue? What are the BEST cup flavors to use with it? I’ll be primarily using bulk coffee with my reusable cup (hello, budget!), but I’ll splurge every once in a while.
Question 2: Anyone own a pig? May I have it?
