–Loved the flashback of the Melissa Explains the 90’s video!!! I need to go back and watch Clarrisa Explains it All!

Foods you shouldn’t eat after 30. I can promise you something on this list is in your regular rotation (hello iced coffee). Getting old sucks!

–Feel old as fuck when you read these Friends facts!

–I love Reese trees! You all can thank Jessi for this one!!!

Favorite Funnies:

This is most assuredly a joke, right? The weather here for the next week….


79 mother fucking degrees on Christmas?!?!?!?!? WTF?!?!?!?!?!?! You guys, I literally can’t right now. I just…I cant….

If a minion was the reason I was late for something, I might not even be mad.:

I actually laughed out loud after seeing the gif and wonder if that's how I look like cause that's how I feel.

Sometimes even less ;) #Books #BookLove:

Me on cheat day:

When you open your Christmas present and it wasn’t what you had in mind…

When you get crazy looks for sharing your dreams…

Linking up with Amanda!

I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend!!! We have some Christmas shopping to finish, gifts to wrap, post office needs to attend to and lots of Christmas movies to watch!!!

    LOL that Adele gift is PERFECT!! It’s supposed to be 86 here, boo. The cold front this weekend is dropping it into the 70’s. Blech! Hope you have a great weekend!!

    I’ve had a couple of those needing a beer at lunch type of days this week! Thank goodness the week is almost over! Those chocolate crossaints look amazing! I could them all on Christmas! This weather is literally killing me! I don’t think that I could handle Christmas in shorts!

  • Reply Jessica December 18, 2015 at 8:25 am

    O Little Town of Bethlehem has been stuck in my head since last night!! Great song though, at least it’s not something I hate!

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization Actually December 18, 2015 at 8:36 am

    Alright, you know what? Screw that list. Basically everything I eat is on there and I don’t care. 😛

    I still want to buy some of the plants you mentioned in your purifying plants post! I think aloe was the one I picked, but I have yet to actually go buy it. And I have some doubts about the lighting in our current home being able to keep a plant alive, but where we’re moving to has a TON of windows, so we should be good then!

    Umm, I love that Will Smith quote — I’m totally writing it down as we speak and putting it on my desk to remind myself that one day, Nadine, we’re going to do it. 🙂

    Had so much fun at lunch yesterday — that one hour is what gets me through the week!!

  • Reply Katie @Running with Wine December 18, 2015 at 8:38 am

    Why is it going to be so warm on Christmas?!?! Thats the ONE day of the year that its ok if its freezing cold. I’ve been wearing a lot of shirts similar to what you posted, I also have some thin sweaters I’ve been trying to wear but its been a little too hot for even those.

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine December 18, 2015 at 9:00 am

    I’m depressed and I am eating a cookie because there is NOOOOO way my Christmas loving Nadine can have 79 stinking degrees on Christmas. Oh magic where are you? Swooning over that vanity and Beer and Bestie=Perfection. Despite the weather I know you’ll make the most of it because that’s how you roll..may the weekend be merry and joyous sweet lady!!

  • Reply marie December 18, 2015 at 9:15 am

    It’s gonna be like 60 here for Christmas and I’m so annoyed. Not only won’t it be cold but we won’t have snow. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas when it’s so warm and no snow. No snow at all!! I probably shouldn’t complain, at least, I won’t have to shovel. hahah Have a great weekend.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph December 18, 2015 at 9:31 am

    That vanity is amazing…although I know I’d have dog slobber all over the bottom of it. LOL

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston December 18, 2015 at 9:41 am

    I’m dying over your funnies -the last one especially! I am so totally fine with the weather in Boston for the holidays – I feel like everyone is forgetting we just had 109 inches of snow dumped on us this year!! Sun and warmth I’ll take it!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • Reply Stephanie December 18, 2015 at 9:54 am

    ugh that don’t eat after 30 list. Sorry. Nope. I was going to leave a comment listing all the things I ate from that list, but I can’t even remember now because it’s SO MANY of them.

  • Reply Pamela @ A Little Glitter December 18, 2015 at 10:22 am

    I love Jewel! I just started playing her for my daughter! She is the best!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis December 18, 2015 at 10:24 am

    Oh Sophia! I love her! I need a good Golden Girls binge in my life haha…The Ciderboys beer sounds awesome!! I have to find that one!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer December 18, 2015 at 10:27 am

    I mean… Did you want to depress me today?!?! The things I can’t eat and Friends facts?!?! Ha! Today it’s cold here but it’s going to be 70 on Christmas. No thanks! Happy weekend, lady!

  • Reply Cara December 18, 2015 at 10:29 am

    That beer looks amazing, and I’m not even a drinker! Also, I wish that my house was fancy enough to have a vanity like that. So gorgeous! It’s very unusual that the weather is so warm this year. Definitely doesn’t feel like Christmas time (at least outside).

  • Reply alyssa December 18, 2015 at 10:42 am

    79º?! That is craziness. It’s been unseasonably warm here too but not to that extreme. I think they’re saying 58º here for Christmas… wow. And oooooh my goodness those chocolate croissants look SO good!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista December 18, 2015 at 11:53 am

    That vanity is beyond perfection – simply gorgeous! And that Snape gif is spot on, I can hear him saying it all Snapely.

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

    OK – if Iced coffee is on that list, i’m not even going to go read it then… I can’t live without my iced coffee…

  • Reply Mattie December 18, 2015 at 2:26 pm

    79 on Christmas?! Geez! I love all three of those tops and could really go for one of those croissants right about now…

  • Reply Jackie December 18, 2015 at 2:26 pm

    I mean, eff that list.

  • Reply Dani December 18, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    My alma mater was in Bethlehem and that version was played all the time- such a good one!

    I need those chocolate croissants STAT.

    79???? Wow, and I thought 60 was bad! At least there’s a full moon?! Happy weekend friend!

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky December 18, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    we had unseasonably warm weather the past week and a half but welp, winter is here. boo! hey remember that herb garden i was so happy about earlier this year? EVERYTHING IS DEAD 🙁

  • Reply Kerry December 18, 2015 at 9:50 pm

    I’m having hard cider right now. So good. Those crescents would be perfect on christmas morning.

  • Reply Katy December 19, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    Jewel’s Christmas CD is one of my favs 🙂 I sing Ave Maria at the top of my lungs. Who am I kidding, I sing them all at the top of my lungs lol.
    Now that’s all I’ll be able to think about when I hear that Adele song hahaa….

  • Reply Amanda December 20, 2015 at 9:22 pm
