1. Valentine’s Day (actually we prefer to call it ValentiMe’s Day). We don’t like to go all crazy about it, but we had fondue…all three courses…the cheese, meatses, and the chocolate. If you have been reading my blog, you may have noticed that we eat fondue for like every special holiday. You have to have a good excuse to stuff yourself with ridiculous amounts of bread and cheese. I’m so full right now, I might die.

2. Let’s talk about Downton Abbey for a sec. Actually, I really just want to talk about Lady Edith. On last week’s episode, we saw that Edith went to London to meet with her editor for the newspaper she is now working for. As soon as she gets there, her much older editor hits on her and you just know she got all warm and fuzzy over it. Seriously? This is now the third, much older, and totally inappropriate man she has gone for. First, there was the married farmer. Then the nice, but really old guy, and now, her boss who is still married to some lady who is in a mental institution. Somebody needs to help a sister out because homegirl just doesn’t get it. Patti Stanger needs to get in there and give her an intervention. Or maybe we can get her on Match.com. Oh, and this might be one of the best things I have ever seen.

3. Oh, and have you noticed on how the show, the married ladies get to eat breakfast in bed? I’d like to get this going in my house (Husband, are you listening?!).

4. You are probably going to notice a pattern in these Nibblies posts. Lots of TV talk. This is because I have no life.

5. Speaking of TV, let’s also talk about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I am finally caught up. Taylor is a little pot stirrer this season. She is also a drunk. I think it’s time for her to go.

6. I’m having a major contact lens issue. I don’t know if it is because my body is trying to adjust to living in a drier climate or what, but I have been back and forth to my eye doctor about 10 times now and have tried about 20 different contacts and I can’t wear any of them. The best so far is a pair that I can wear until about 2pm and then I need to rip them out. The contacts I have been wearing for years are still the best, but they get very dry when I am on the computer for a long time. And well, between my job and blogging, I am on the computer all day long. My doctor says I just might not be able to wear contacts anymore and that I need to get Lasik. I have really wanted to get Lasik for a while, but there’s that whole money thing!

7. As I am getting closer to the big 3-0, I have noticed I am getting horrible dark circles. Part of it is lack of sleep, but what do I do?!! I need product recommendations.

8. I haven’t been loving my Birchboxes lately. I still haven’t gotten my box for February, but if they don’t get it right this time, I might be done. I’ve been thinking about joining Glossybox instead. I know it’s more expensive, but if the products are better, then it is worth it. Do you have it? Tell me your thoughts!

9. OH, and YOU MUST see this video! Seriously, I die.

  1. Great blog post (had to skip the Downton Abby one because we are still on the second season! On the contacts… Have you tried Focus Day and nights? I had a dry eye problem and they are the highest water content ones (according to my eye doctor anyway…). I can wear them for two weeks straight (with some eye drops in the morning when I wake). (I do not work for them… Just really like them). For dark circles… I like Bare Minerals cover up…

    • I don’t think I have tried those. So you never take them out? I will have to ask about those next time I go in.

    • You can sleep in the for up to 30 days (according to the FDA ;-) ) – I usually go a couple weeks then clean them and put them back in for another couple weeks (and do it another time to extend the life of the lenses… Love waking up and being able to see!

  2. Umm I have no life either. I watch SO much TV. It’s cool though, I’d rather live through someone else’s crazy drama than having my own! :P
    Oh and dark circles? Seriously it’s like in our genetics..I have them so bad, always have. I’ve tried so many creams, nothing really works. I cover them up now By using three layers of different highlighters and concealers (just unde my eyes) and it seems to do the job. But how annoying it is to do & how annoying that the dark circles are there in the first place. Right?! Sorry this is happening to you. Suck-y. Let me know if you ever find a better solution!

  3. OMG I AGREE WITH DOWNTON!!! I want breakfast in bed! all the time. and yes. Edith is…so desperate for affections. I just wish she would follow her dream in journalism instead of trying to get with EVERY SINGLE MARRIED MAN. and that farmer? oh poor edith.

    Aww I like Taylor on BH! Brandi is a pot sitrrer! :)

    • Yeah, she has some serious issues with men and then she wonders why she is all alone. It’s like, duh!!

      Brandi definitely likes to get people riled up. I just didn’t like how Taylor kind of started that argument at the tea party. Adrienne is really bugging me this season as well. I know she is headed for divorce and we haven’t seen it happen on the show yet, but gosh, she’s so snotty.

  4. I so need to get on the Downton Abbey bandwagon…. I hope netflix carries all the seasons soon. :) I wish we had thought to do fondue for valentine’s day. We got Asian take out instead. :)

  5. I love that you guys had fondue for all three courses. Such a fun idea! I’m with you on feeling so full I might die… between a work potluck and then food at home with the husband… too much!!! haha And of course for work potlucks people always bring in stuff that is so bad for you… but tastes good so you can’t resist. Or maybe that’s just me : )

  6. I want to come eat fondu and watch Downton Abby with you!!!

  7. I’m still smarting over the Sir Anthony/Edith situation earlier this season, which I really didn’t buy. And the married editor? Harumph. It’s like Julian Fellowes is just jerking Edith around.

  8. Oh my goodness, I am WITH you on the dark circles. I haven’t found any miracle products, but I did learn recently that it has to do with just having very thin skin on that area of the eyes. So, not sure if there is any cure since it’s mostly a hereditary thing. Lucky us, I guess! :/

  9. That cupcake video was so cute!!!

    I just bought this Tarte eye cream from Sephora, but haven’t started using it yet. I’ll let you know if it pans out!!

  10. I am with you with everything you are talking here…. I am not winning in my dark circle situation, I too think its time for Taylor to go, Edith and the married editor…hmmm,m and yes I dream about breakfast in bed everyday…
    Love reading this post

  11. Oh, I like these posts! I think I’m the only person who hasn’t watched Downton Abbey yet… I always try to keep up on RHBH though ;) Did you see Taylor on WWHL? All I could think was what is she on??
