This post is brought to you by germs in my head and even less of a filter than usual. All ramblings, unfortunately, are my own.
Itâ€™s Monday, and Iâ€™m snuggled up on my couch nursing a cold. I saw my parents yesterday, and they both had bronchitis, so Iâ€™m hoping and praying this doesnâ€™t turn into that.
BECAUSE Iâ€™M GOING TO SWITZERLAND NEXT WEEK! (And Italy the week after that.)
I don’t know if we’ll actually go, but these are the kinds of pretty things I can see in a little over a week, so that’s good motivation to park my ass on my couch as much as possible and take care of myself.
I am probably sick because I stayed out until 2:30am on Friday singing karaoke with coworkers…and then went to run club/brunch club in the rain. We ditched the run because it was pouring, but I still ran .5 miles to brunch, sat there in sorta wet clothes, ran a mile back to the subway and sat on the subway in cold, wet clothes. You’d think I’d know better…
Yesterday, I went out to my
storage unit parents’ house in NJ to bring back some fall clothes/log some family time.
We also went up to Woodbury, and I picked up a few fall things including these Vineyard Vines lobster PJ pants. My mom got me a few pairs of VV PJ pants and shorts a few years ago, and they are amazing. I generally prefer sweats/yoga pants over actual PJ pants, but these get so soft and comfy…AND HI, LOBSTERS.
Speaking of lobsters, should Bailey be a lobster or a banana for Halloween? Please vote in the comments.

Semi-tangentially related to lobsters?

I’m already seeing so many easy, healthy meals.
