Weekend Thoughts (& Gilmore Girls)

Good Morning friends!

It's the middle of May and the temperatures are in the 40s. Yesterday was the first day it didn't rain in DC in 18 days and it's supposed to start up again tomorrow. It's so depressing! The temperature hasn't broken 80 degrees yet and I'm seriously contemplating moving to Florida.

Despite all of this, I'm finally starting to feel better about everything. I've been in such a weird funk for the last month, partially due to weather, partially due to being so busy at work, there was just a lot that was keeping me from really feeling like myself, but things are good now!

I'm planning a "Day in the Life" post soon so you can see just what's keeping me so crazy! In the meantime, I'll fill you all in over a morning cup of coffee on this cold, DC morning.

I started training for the Sea Wheeze Half-Marathon. The race is in August, 13 weeks away, and this will definitely be the longest I've ever trained for a half, but I've finally come to terms with where I am with running. Chicago was a disaster and then I spent the next few months half-assing my way through training plan after training plan, only to stop training, or never even sign up in the first place.

I'm starting to make some pretty amazing summer plans. Even though it feels like it might never be summer, I started finalizing a lot of summer plans this weekend including a girls' weekend in New York with Holly and a trip to Paris with my mom and aunt! I'm hoping to take a trip to Boston too, and possibly LA...then, of course, I have a few more baseball stadiums to cross off my list!

I've been binge watching Gilmore Girls at an alarming rate. I've gone through 5 seasons in 3 weeks. I'm obsessed. I had never watched the show before (I KNOW!) and now I can't stop. I'm in the middle of season 5 and here are some thoughts overall:

  • I hate Richard and Emily. I know you're supposed to, but their behavior is always the same and after 5 seasons, it's getting old. Maybe it wouldn't bother me as much if I wasn't watching eight episodes a day, but I can't stand them. 
  • I'm neither Team Dean or Team Jess. 
  • I love Luke and Lorelai but I was always Team Christopher until last night (Episode 100 when Richard and Emily renew their vows), and now I don't ever want to see him again. 
  • I've never liked Melissa McCarthy, but I love her as Sookie.
  • Did you know that Max Greenfield (Schmidt from New Girl) makes a cameo the night of Dean's bachelorette party?
  • I really hate that Rory went to Yale. Especally after that nonsense Richard pulled when he brought her to visit. 

That's enough Gilmore Girls talk for now. 

I found a new book series to fall in love with. I've only read the first in the series so far, Mr. Churchill's Secretary, but I highly recommend this series for any historical fiction fans! It's spy novel meets historical fiction meets World War II!

Speaking of books, if you've joined mine and Carolann's Book Club, our next book is Why We Came to the City by Kristopher Jansma, and we're linking up to discuss it next Friday, May 27th! 

I had a pretty uneventful weekend, but it was great. It was super productive, which is something I really needed! I could definitely use a vacation, but I'll get one soon! More importantly, I could use some sunshine!
Have a great week!
