So I had plans last weekend. A relaxing date night with the BF on Friday, a trip to Ikea on Saturday, and a nice day of furniture assembly and baking on Sunday. But that did not happen.
Not even close.
I did, however, end up stranded on the side of the highway on my way home from work on Friday… in 105 degree heat, for like three hours. Because my tire decided to explode. And even though the BF came to rescue me, when he headed back to his car and I headed back to mine… I turned the key… nothing.
MY CAR WOULDN’T START.
Then, we got home only to see that our ceiling was leaking.
Defeated, I threw a towel on the floor to soak up the still-dripping water and took a shower. I was done with Friday.
Needless to say the weekend was filled with lots of home and car repairs, and there were no relaxing date nights, no trips to Ikea, and no weekend baking.
I think I might actually get the shakes if I don’t bake something soon.
There is still some good in the world, though, like the fact that PUMPKIN IS OFFICIALLY BACK!
If you live near an Einstein’s Brother’s Bagels and you have never had their pumpkin cream cheese, stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and go get yourself a bagel with pumpkin shmear and your life will officially be complete.
It’s only a matter of time before I am drowning myself in pumpkin lattes and stuffing my face with pumpkiny sweets.

In other news…
Someone needs to make this Han Solo refrigerator. I think you could get pretty creative with the ice/water dispensers… just sayin.
Scientists find out that haters are actually going to hate. The jury is still out on whether that makes me feel better or worse.
A 4-year old invented the most awesome breakfast cereal ever while also validating my obsession with owning every cereal flavor in existence.
Also, I guess I can quit my gym membership, because apparently I’ve just been standing all wrong.
Oh, and Japanese people are super mean. I mean, how would you react if you showed up to work and this is what you saw?
That being said, I am pretty sure that if my company did that I would probably work for them forever. Assuming that I didn’t die of a heart attack.
