Obsessiveness February 24, 2010

Mm the things I love to love.

1. Kesha. I am not talking about the songs that are on the radio although they're good. I'm talking about three other songs on her album that you'd have to search out. Take It Off, Blind, and my favorite Boots and Boys. They're all just so catchy! In my head the whole day. Don't buy the entire album though because for a 17-year-old girl she's amazingly dirty... 

2. Old Navy basics, the tee's, cardigans, and every day shirts. I recently cleaned out a huge chunk of my closet so it was time to restock the staples and Old Nav was the perfect place to do it. And they were having a sale so I got about 8 shirts, a couple tanks, a vest, and a cardigan for under $100.

3. Steve Madden shoes. Oh um I can't even handle this. I was in Georgetown and there's an entire Steve Madden store and they were having a sale. So I went in and filled a hole in my boot collection with gorgeous black suade slouchy boots with no heels. Yum. Behold the fabulousness.

4. Sledding. Cory I'm sure would disagree but I have been sledding twice in the past two weeks and it has been SO much fun. Sure you get a little banged up and maybe a little cold but you can't help but laugh at yourself and the other people and just relax and have fun going fast and almost hitting trees.

5. Girl Scout Cookies. Every year I forget how awesome they are and every year I somehow end up with a couple boxes and remember that they are just fabulous. Samoas are my fav. 

6. Mixing up my playlists. I tend to get in kind of a music rut so every once in a while I go in and spend probably a little too long just going through and changing things up. It lets you rediscover all the amazing music you have and rotate it back into every day listening. Beautiful.

7. Getting close enough to my birthday that I get to start thinking about what I want. And even better not being the one to bring it up, my mom asked me to start thinking about it so now I get to go guilt free window shopping! (Buy me something nice :)

8. Being a rebel and wearing flip flops in winter. Yes every one will call you crazy but you can be happy in the knowledge that your feet are sublimely comfortable and you get to show off your winter pedi for once. I just felt that my summer shoes missed me so I had to give them a little love :).

9. Being able to sit on my couch with a fantastic blanket, a drink, and just watch super fit people compete in sports I'll never dream of being able to do. Otherwise known as the Olympics. I love them and so enjoy watching them whenever I'm home.

10. Planning all the things I'm going to do when I go home. Yes my list is long, and yes most of the things involve eating, and yes I probably won't be able to do anything. But anticipation is really what makes the time go by and just makes Heidi a happy girl. I can't wait to go home! 

And an Extra - The Soup! Joel McHale oh how I love you. I think about this show and laugh. I watch it by myself and seriously laugh out loud. I wish it was longer than a half an hour each week....

Top 10 Obsessions: 2/22/10

1.My Life as Liz: I laugh as I type just thinking if this show. Oh man I want a Sully, if only so he could say things like “Mantastic” or “Glitter is the herpes of arts & crafts Liz, it never goes away” with a straight face. On the last ep he showed up dressed as a banana and proceeded to do the Peanut Butter Jelly song, really who does not want that? If you raise your hand I feel bad for you dude.
2. The Historian: Totally late to the bandwagon on this book, to be quite honest the size scared me while I was in college. But I am only 60 pages in and really loving it. I would tell you what it is about but it sounds hokey and is completely not. Look it up.
3. Kell on Earth: so I love this show because it is insane to me that people would volunteer to be treated this way but then you see how Kelly Cutrone actually takes care of her people and you semi get it. Throw in a lot of fashion and all the drama that follows that, oh it is in an hour of pure pleasure.
4. Beatles Tropical Tribute CD: I have no idea where I got this CD but it is on my iPod somehow and I really enjoy singing along to my fave Beatles songs to a tropical beat. Or trying to sing along to them in Spanish in a tropical beat. I usually hate tribute CDs but this one I dig.
5. OTH this week (started this a few weeks ago): John Hughes themed Ep was truly fun. It got March Scwann back in my good graces even though Quinn was dressed like a hooker all night (I know as a girl I should not says these things about other girls, but just look at her outfit). Especially all The Sixteen Candles references because that one is my fave.
6. Ben McKenzie: Ryan on The O.C. is all growned up on Southland and well he grew well. Not to mention Southland is pretty awesome show. A gritty cop drama with a lot of talent, included Mr. McKenzie who really delivers in his part.
7. Belly Dance Class: So I don’t think I have written about the fitness class I am taking but I actually get credit for Fitness Belly Dancing. And that whole credit thing totally makes you go. Although it has been very hard to unlearn The Salsa I know, this class kicks my butt every time and leaves muscles hurting that I have never used before. My obliques, scalenes, intercostals all the ones in my hips and I have ran 40 minutes on an elliptical and never had my legs shake as much as after shimmies.
8. Mary McCormack: This is the main chick on In Plain Sight a TV show that is shot in my fair city. So she went on a show and said some not nice things about my city which we are pretty used too. And to be honest this city is one where it is all about what you make of it. But then a local radio show here was calling her out on it and who should call him but Mary and apologize. She even said she has chosen to raise her kids here.
9. Mint Oreos: I love them and their greenness and their minty-ness all of it!
10. Etsy: Warning do not go on this site if you have no money like me. Because there is so much you will want from painting of your dog to handmade Jewelry, art, scarves, etc. I need to learn not
