The Pits & The Peaks


* I tried making chocolate chip cookies last night and I wanted them to be ooey gooey and they turned out just ewwwy. 
* I burned my chicken enchiladas in the crockpot this week. 

* It was consistently around -40C all week. I had to go out and shovel the sidewalk and I think I got frostbite.

* I got stuck in the driveway trying to get to work one morning and I know I got frostbite from digging myself out. 

* I forgot about the load of laundry I had downstairs and it froze in the washing machine. FROZE. How is that even possible?

* Adjusting to being alone in a house that isn't mine has been difficult. I keep hearing noises, seeing things, all around being crazy. I went from a tiny house full of people all the time to this silence and it's driving me bonkers. 

* I realized there's only one more week of American Horror Story Coven left and I feel empty now. 


* My favorite raunchy Canadian, Kathy from Vodka & Soda, became my first sponsor. YAY! I love her blog and was stoked to have her hang out on my sidebar for a month. 

* Hugs from my favorite little munchkins at Brownies made everything better.

* I saw Frozen with my mom & sister on Monday and it was amazeballs. I want an Olaf. SO. BAD. 

* I get to see Inside Llewyn Davis tonight, finally. Shout out to Caitlin for being my new bff.
* The Jets won four games in a row. Four. It was magic, long live Paul Maurice. But then they lost last night but still. It was a huge burst of pride to know our team can do it. 

* I got my retail job back which means I will soon have money to plan a trip with Fallon. All the yesses to this because I will finally get to meet my lil bugaboo!

* I was reminded how great of a friend Andrea is. She stayed on the phone with me while I checked every room in the house for a possible intruder even though I was being completely ridiculous. And then put up with some seriously unstable texts last night. No more Criminal Minds for Melissa...

* My sister and I had an impromptu movie + delivery night and I finally saw Brave and it was perfection.

* But best of all, I went to the Wedding Show with my beautiful friend Jenn. I cannot believe she is getting married this year. Seeing her in a wedding dress almost made me cry! She also had the chance to test out some wedding hairstyles and she looked so pretty!

My week was more eventful than I thought. I'm going to leave you all today with a song from Frozen because IT IS SO GOOD. So everyone Back that Azz Up to Olaf the cutest snowman in the whole wide world.
