I spent most of my yesterday afternoon at TedxUNC, which was absolutely invigorating. I have a lot of favorite parts that I'll likely post in the coming weeks, but hands-down the coolest of the favorites was acroyoga. Yup. Awesome. The woman who spoke with us talked about how yoga is a journey with yourself - just you and your mat; but, acroyoga requires allowing a partner into that journey with you, and thus communication and trust become paramount. This is something I'd totally try one day.

#snOMG we're having a snowpocalypse around here - have you heard? Southerners can't handle the snow, and I am Southern through and through. After an epic 4 hour trek home (don't worry, I live 5 miles from my office ... .... and it took 4 hours. cue sympathy violin.) on Wednesday, I've been utterly snowed in for the past 36 hours. Snow days really aren't that fun as a grown up, because I end up frantically working from home and feeling guilty if I enjoy the snow too much, but then going to bed thinking I should have enjoyed the snow more; and so the cycle goes.
Anyway, I'm hitting my RESTLESS TO THE MAX point. Here are a few fun links that have been getting me through:
This is handy.
This is interesting if you're as nosy as I am.
This is fertile, and guaranteed to be unique.
This is a good idea.
This is sweet and lovely.
And this is chuckle-worthy.
Also, a friend and I are really starting a bookclub! Woot woot. I just downloaded The Goldfinch last night and am already totally sucked in.

Well. This looks pretty damn delicious, said the stir-crazy gal suffocating in a bleak, bleak February. An appealing rendering of a sweet cocktail for a non-sweet-cocktail-drinker (yours truly).
PS - I am, indeed, blogging about whiskey before 9am. ... *nervously clearing throat*

I've never been one of those people who watches TV to unwind, but I do own every season of Gilmore Girls. Lately, I've been watching it nonstop, even just as background noise in lieu of music. I light a candle, pour a glass of wine and settle in - I've even been staying up late and foregoing my morning routine. I've also decided that sweet little Hillsborough is our very own Stars Hollow.
I blame the winter doldrums. What are you doing to fight them?
(And also: Can we talk about The WB? Throwback.)

One of my best friends is a really talented painter, and she's just opened a Society 6 shop. I am pumped because I adore her work (this is one of my current favorites), but I can't afford to stock up on it all just yet. So this is such a wonderful compromise! Prints! Pillows! Wall clocks (I'm surprised by how much I like those, actually)!
