My Take on Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

I know I’m a little late in posting this since it’s been two weeks since the show was released, but I wanted to wait until I was sure most people had finished watching all four episodes and I wanted to have some time to stew it all over. WARNING: Spoilers below!

 

PARIS

I can truly never get enough of Paris and I was just as much of  a fan of her in the new episodes. She was like a neurotic version of Clair Underwood and I loved every second that she was on screen. That bathroom scene? Perfection!

My DIY Gilmore Girls Shirts

My DIY Gilmore Girls Shirts

 

Today I am heading up to my sister’s house for the week and wanted to surprise her with a Gilmore Girls themed shirt since we are both really excited to watch the new episodes. I’d looked for shirts to buy online but some of the nicer ones were expensive, and I figured I could try to make the shirts myself instead. I’d seen a tutorial on how to screen print at home using a vinyl cutter and had been wanting to give it a try.

I’m Losing My Hair

I'm Losing My Hair

 

A few days ago, I frantically came to the realization that I had been denying for months – I’m losing my hair.

 

Over the past 4 months, I’ve noticed that I’ve been shedding more than normal. After I wash my hair, the drain is covered and my hairbrush has to be cleaned weekly, when before I could go months before it was full of hair. I’d been telling myself I was imagining it, but it’s gotten to the point where it’s looking back at me in the mirror. Any hopeful doubt I had disappeared when I got my hair cut this weekend, and my hair stylist agreed I was shedding more than normal.

Getting Into the Spirit of Halloween

As far as I’m concerned, Halloween is the best holiday there is. Every year I look forward to decorating the house, picking out candy, and when I have the time, coming up with a fun costume. Here are some of the ways I’m getting into the spirit of Halloween this year:

 

1| The first thing I did at the start of October was add some Halloween flair to the entryway table. I smile every time I walk in the front door and see it.

Our Trip to Louisville

A few weeks ago David and I made  a road trip to Louisville. David collects bourbon and for his birthday in June I promised him we could go do the Bourbon Trail this fall. I’m not a fan of bourbon, but I was happy to be the designated driver while he got to do tastings and hunt for rare bottles.

 

Our first stop was Bardstown. We’d left Atlanta on Thursday afternoon and got to Bardstown around 2am. I slept in on Friday while David got up at 6am to go wait in line for a special release of some rare bourbons at Heaven Hill Distillery and Willett Distillery. After snagging a few bottles, he picked me up and we headed into town to grab some breakfast. After breakfast, we headed back to Willett so he could show it to me and to see if he could get some more bottles. The rick houses where they store the bourbon were creepy as hell. I thought they looked like an old prison or mental hospital.

My Favorite Fall Traditions

Over the years, David and I have started some fall traditions that I now look forward to every year.

 

1| Pumpkin Patch – Visiting a pumpkin patch may be my favorite of our fall traditions. We go out, find the perfect pumpkin, and cut it off the vine. We usually spend a good amount of time disagreeing on which is the perfect pumpkin, but it’s such a fun experience. Plus most of the pumpkin patches around here have farm animals which means I get to play with goats.

When Adopting a Rescue Dog Doesn’t Go As Planned

When Adopting a Rescue Dog Doesn't Go As Planned
In January we adopted Bernie. To say the last 8 months have been challenging and not what we expected would be an understatement.

 

We got Bernie from a very well known and reputable rescue shelter in the area. We were told he was around 2 years old, had no aggression issues, and that he was great with cats. When we went to meet him he seemed indifferent towards David and I, but he and Sophie, our 2 year old Peekapoo, instantly clicked. We even tested him with the shelter’s cats since we had 3 at home. He had no real reaction to them. Once we brought him home, and he started to get comfortable, it became clear we were going to have a few issues.

The Most WTF Lines from Last Night’s Debate

These would be hilarious if he wasn’t running for president. And yes, they are all from Trump. All quotes were taken from this NPR transcript.

 

1. On Hillary’s plan to fight ISIS:

DONALD TRUMP: “… No wonder you’ve been fighting ISIS your entire adult life.”

Um, ISIS hasn’t been around that long.

 

2. On the allegation that he hasn’t paid his taxes:

HILLARY CLINTON: “… Or maybe he does not want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he has paid nothing in federal taxes because the only years that anybody has ever seen for a couple of years where he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license. And they showed he did not pay any federal income tax.”

DONALD TRUMP: “That makes me smart.”

No, if that’s true, it makes you a criminal.
