It's Friday - Let Us Collect Our Winnings and Run Away


image via we heart it

Usually I would have a funny or sarcastic story, perhaps a yummy recipe or sassy shoe, but not today friends.  No instead today I have, for the 40948473653th time, a head cold that has rendered me exhausted.  So I simply leave you with a heartfelt thanks for such a great white denim-filled week.   

What's on your agenda this weekend?  My customary Friday evening margaritas have been replaced with cold medicine, more green tea, and movies on the couch - it could be worse, right?  I mean on The Young and the Restless (guilty pleasure) Ronan could have perished during his liver transplant rather than disappearing moments after the organ was placed in his body.  Now I can hang in suspense wondering where he's gone off to in less than optimal soap opera health - just in case I'm still on the ol' couch come Monday - can you say couch sores?  In dim news Dallas Raines, the local weather guy, just sent up a red flag that we have approximately 2 weeks of rain coming our way starting Wednesday.  Isn't that special? Not really.  See?  This is what it's come to.  Delirium has set in and I'm just rambling on about nothing.  House arrest is not the new black.  

Thankfully Valentine's Day is on Monday so there should be a truckload of dark chocolate in my future - hopefully yours, too.  Until then I wish you a relaxing and fun couple of days off.  

Before I run, I mean go lay down yet again, a special congrats to Taylor from Curly in the City - she won the Brooklyn Thread giveaway!! Yay!  Thanks to all of you who took the time to enter.  Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm in awe that it hasn't gone away yet. WTF? Haven't you paid your dues? As much as lying on the couch watching a gross amount of Jersey Shore/Grey's Anatomy/etc. sounds blissful, I'm prettttttty sure I'd be over it after 1.5 days. Wish I could entertain you with spiked cough medicine or super strong hot toddies!

I've loved looking at all the white denim. Found some great new blogs and some super stylin' ladies. Wish I could blog-gaze from couch all day tomorrow instead of going work . . . but while feeling wonderfully healthy. ha!

I hope you feel better and you can enjoy the weekend from a different perspective than the couch.

I am so sorry you are still sick...again! Ok, time to bring out the big guns...you need soup from Nate and Als.

Your comment last night was killing me. You are too funny. No more Miley, you need Jewish penicilin. Head to Nate and Als. Asap!

Ms. Givens said...

Feel better soon. My daughter was sick last week. Breathing treatments helped her out. Now I have a sick Boxer. :(
I plan to go to a convention this weekend so I will have some good outfit post next week.
I was supposed to go see Martin Short tonight but it got postponed due to our 21 inches of snow and record low temps.
See you soon!

daily mix LA said...

Krystal said...

Rissy said...

I really like the brief Young and the Restless synopsis.. cause I am usually watching re-runs of 8 Simple Rules at that time... because at heart I am 15. yup
I really need you to get better soon... my sympathy can't take it anymore... ok that was a pathetic attempt at a joke.

Bonnie said...

I'm sorry that you are sick again. :( Your life sucks right now.

you poor thing! the winter flu has hit you pretty hard... over and over again. i hope you can get over it for good really really soon. and rain? oh no! i've grown rather addicted to the sun this last month. sigh...

Ashleigh said...

I'm so sorry you're feeling lousy, hope the situation improves soon. Totally guilty of catching up on Y&R on sick days - is Victor still around? That is one beautiful man!

Katie said...

Ok, keep on resting and consuming dark chocolate because I believe that its helping and your Bieber Fever is on the mend. (Me? I was in bed at like 10:00 and asleep shortly after midnight which is RIDIC for me. I'm trying to ward off this plague with all I've got!)

Courtney Erin said...

Feel better lady! I'm sick again now too so I see a weekend of lying on the couch and watching Wife Swap (yeah, I'm an idiot) in my immediate future.

listen, this cold needs to get the hell out of here! haven't you suffered enough?! Boo to this cold.

I'm thinking large amounts of crappy tv + chocolate + sleep might be the combo to end this miserable cold!

thisgirlbeck said...

ohhhh get well soon!!! if it makes you feel any better my weekend will consist of lots of couch laying, maybe some beers, and whatever movies they are playing on showtime.
feel better...

Sorry you are still sick. I say go ahead, go margarita crazy ;) Sometimes when I am sick a rum, and coke can make me feel better. Now I sound like a lush.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 weeks of rain?? How did I miss that? UGH! Carrie, I'm not ready for that- I have my mindset geared toward spring right now. And it's supposed to be 80 degrees this weekend! WOOHOO!!! I hope you feel better by tomorrow or sunday so you can frolic outdoors. I'm hoping for lots of Valentine's candy coming my way this weekend. :)

Congrats to Taylor-lucky girl!

My own week has been pretty hellish, so I'm looking forward to curling up for a little bit with something very, very strong. I think there's a bubble bath in my future!

Josie said...

Carrie, you must get better immediately. I'm so worried about you! I hope you've at least turned the corner on this, love. Wishing you a weekend full of chocolate, movies, and lots of sleep!

Marissa said...

Hey, found your blog through Corey Thompson and I just wanted to thank you for your post a few weeks back about those pintucked, wide-legged trouser jeans from the Gap. I bought some and they are perfection! I can't wait to see what other gems you recommend. :)
And I'm sorry to hear you're sick. I hope you feel better soon.
Hugs and kittens, ~Marissa

drollgirl said...

well you are funny even when you are SICK! i hope you feel better soon!

and damn that sweaty dallas raines for ruining the next two weeks with his stupid forecast. i was thinking we would have 75 degree temps for the REST OF THE YEAR, as we should. argh!

this free bird said...

Marissa!! I'm so happy to hear from you. Thx for outing yourself here on the ol' blog - Corey's been my best friend for years and tries to fit in my pants every now and then, too. That's not happening! ahahaha! It's a treasure trove of finds and sarcasm over here. Welcome, friend.

drollgirl - omg i think we may have been separated at birth. re: CATS! and yes dallas raines can go bugger off with his rain commentaries. may the doppler be off yet again!

Mo Pie, Please said...

Oh no! Feel better Carrie, you've been cursed lately with sickness! And congrats on winning Ren's giveaway - totally jealous!

LyddieGal said...

Two weeks of rain? Sounds like a good time for a vacation to me. but you've the appropriate foot wear, so I guess you'll be okay.

white denim week was fun, we'll all have to do it again real soon!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

OMG sweetie I'm so right there with u!!! Totally delirious. Haven't gotten out of bed since Wed. And usually can't even lift my head off my pillow. And I can't eat anything. This is the worst flu I can ever remember have and I even had H1N1 last year. Something bad is going around...And what the hell? You're in CA and I'm in NYC. Weirdness...

Hope you feel better soon! xoxo

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I'm sorry you're sick again! How annoying- I never can tell if it's better to be sick in the work week or the weekend, either way, I hope you're already feeling better today!!!

Golden Girl Olive said...

I was feeling sick a few weeks ago and had to break my vegetarianism for some homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. For some secret reason, something in the chicken broth always makes me feel a lot better.

Feel better!
