Oh man, I am SO glad it’s Saturday, how about you? I am snug as a bug on this cozy, rainy Saturday morning. Took an awesome kickboxing class at the gym followed by a hot shower followed by PJ’s, a cup of coffee, and a warm blanket as I type this out. Now THAT is what I’m talking about (: And since I have no idea where this post is going, I will share a few random things/thoughts with you…

Last night I went on a little bit of a shopping spree. Not sure where my willpower went, but I am sure that I love my new winter clothes from Gap (they’re having a major sale this weekend!) and my brand new coffee maker! In my defense, I was in dire need of a new coffee maker given that the old one was leaking coffee all over my countertops and making my mornings more hectic than usual. Not good. So, of course, I bought a sleek white one and I love the way it looks! It’s no espresso machine (maybe one of these days…), but I love it just the same. And as for the clothes…well, you can never have too many pairs of jeans, right? (;

Additionally, I went on a major cleaning + purging spree with my craft stash around 10 o’clock last night. I’m only halfway done, but the pile is mountainous! I’m already feeling so much better about it already! Can’t believe it took me this long to tackle it…

This cold, rainy (and in some parts, snowy) weather has John and me on cloud nine. There is something so satisfying about a tangible change of seasons…something that Southern California doesn’t really get to experience. Strangely enough, all this crazy weather has me pining for the holidays when I can go back home (to that place with no real weather) and celebrate the season there. It’s not even the big Thanksgiving meal or Christmas morning that has me super excited; it’s the little things. The smell of my parents’ house when the heater is on. Going Christmas shopping at the Topanga mall with my mom. Staying up late with my brother and laughing about everything. Going to Disneyland (best time of year to go!). Spending Christmas Eve with John’s family. Having breakfast with my family. Reuniting with friends over coffee. Wrapping gifts. The list goes on and I can’t wait!

And finally, there are a few things floating around the interwebs that I forgot to share! Over at Janelle’s blog, I wrote a post on thrifting. Over at the AC blog, you can read all about me and my hilarious co-workers. And as always, you can find my pinning like a madwoman over at my Pinterest.

Happy Saturday!
