Rainy and Random Monday.

- It's a rainy Monday.  I like rainy days when I can curl up under a blanket or stay in bed.  Not so much when I have to be out in it, walking back and forth between my office and the courthouse.  Boo.

- I didn't get my weekend recap post ready with all the pretty pictures, so it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

- Donny has been unemployed since he moved here except for a few weeks, but he got a job last week and starts tomorrow!  We will now be a TINK family!  (Two incomes, no kids...)

- I'm pretty excited about his work schedule-- he has to be at work two hours before I do.  So I now have someone to help me get out of bed and get my butt in the gym!  I SO MUCH prefer going in the morning than in the evening, but it's so hard to get out of bed...

- I managed to stab myself in the face and rip out a good chuck of my forehead with my fingernail getting ready for church yesterday.  Ouch.  (Wonder why my forehead looks ginormous in this pic...Lol)

- This car is the bane of my existence.  This picture is the scene EVERY. MORNING.  How hard is it to park a Mini Cooper inside a space??  Or maybe he just needs 10 feet to get out of the driver's side?  Either way, I can't get out of my car without hitting it or crowding the car to my right.

- The Golden Globes were actually entertaining last night!  Even Donny watched and enjoyed them.  I love Amy Poehler, and she with Tina Fey were such great hosts!  I could also go for Robert Downey, Jr. hosting-- love him.

- What's with the category "comedy or musical"?  It's a rip-off to comedies.  Of course Les Miserables was going to win with that competition.  A musical should go where the movie would otherwise belong-- either comedy or drama.  It shouldn't be automatically lumped with comedies just because there are songs

- My boss came back today from a two-week vacation to Greece and Turkey. Hearing him talk about it, I now need to go to Turkey. There's so much Biblical history there that I'd absolutely love it.

Happy Monday, y'all!


  1. Congrats to hubby and his new job! And I guess the good news is the forehead chunk looks like a heart?? lol

  2. Ohhhmigosh. That parking garage scene is JUST like our parking lot too!! There is this lady that HUGS the line to the right like she is massive and needs all the room in the world to get out of her car... But she doesn't really. She's just STRANGE. Annoying. I just don't get it!! ;-)

    And yes, weren't the Golden Globes fun??

    Congrats to Donny!

  3. definitely agree on the comedy/musical lump & the robert downey jr host idea!

  4. Seriously w/ the forehead injury!? Be careful!! Ha!

    Congrats to Donny on the new job. I'm SO happy for him. Such great news.

    The Golden Globes were good.

  5. You should definitely plan a trip to Turkey! It's pretty amazing!

  6. I think it's time to leave a little note on Mr. Mini Cooper, letting him/her know what a jackass parker he/she is!

  7. Not to make you jealous or anything, but it's raining here too and I "get" to stay home! Although I probably won't be curling up with a blanket and book. Oh well... :)

    And I think I might purposefully ding that Mini Cooper. Who the heck can't park a tiny car?! As I say for people who drive big trucks...if you can't park it, don't drive it. *sigh*

  8. I agree with Sarah, totally ding that car! Weren't Amy and Tina a hoot last night?! Stopping by from Mingle Monday!

  9. Well done on Donny and his job :-) LOVE the TINK accronym haha!

    I loved the look of Emily Blunt at the Golden Globes.

    As for the mini cooper? Grrr... bad parking is one of my pet peeves!
    Stopping by from Mingle Monday and a new follower :-)


  10. You cut your forehead with your fingernail...there has to be a story behind that. :)

    Yay for Donny getting a job!!

    You should leave a note on that car's windshield. I would.

    I can't wait to see y'all, let me know when you are coming to Texas for a visit. I need a Katie hug!!


  11. Another place besides Turkey would be Israel. I know it's a little dangerous, but a friend of mine went this summer and her pictures are amazing!
    Stopping by from Mingle Monday because I'm also named Katie!

  12. Yay on the new job for hubby and I haven't ever thought of using the term TINK - I like it!

  13. Congrats to Donny for finding a job, that is awesome! And that Mini is just ridiculous- he is going to get keyed someday for that!

  14. Yay for Donny!! That's awesome!!!
    I like how you managed to cute yourself and yet it is like a little heart on your forhead! I thought you actually had drawn in on there for a second trying to be cutsie! If that Mini parks that way all the time, leave them a note. That is the smallest car ever, it should be able to make it between the stinking lines! LOL

  15. Stopping by from Mingle Monday...Ugh I hate those kind of Mondays too! It's sleeting here( in Nashville )today but luckily I got to stay inside! Yikes, I hope your forehead heals up quickly! That sounded painful.

  16. Holy crap that mini-cooper driver simply can't park!! I'd probably get peeved and write him a note! haha!

  17. Stopping in from Mingle Monday. I tend to always injure myself in strange ways--like today with a file folder!

  18. oh man..I have the hardest time getting myself up even earlier to get to the gym, but after work all you wanna do is just get home! ugh. dilemma.

  19. Ouch, I've done that before with my nail! It hurts :( and I agree about the golden globes and the comedy or musical category, makes no sense!! Good luck to Donny starting his new job!!!

  20. Two incomes and no kids sounds like living the dream to me.

    And you may need to wrap that mini cooper in saran wrap if it doesn't start behaving.

  21. Yay for Donny's new job! I need someone to make me get outta bed for the gym too! Ouch, your forehead looks painful! Clip those nails girl, haha! :)
