{Cocktail Friday}

First off, y'all need to know something about me. I am a girl who loves to sleep. I have a hard time functioning on less that 8 hours, my body just refuses to get up. Well, a surprisingly hectic work week, in combination with this LSAT class has suddenly sucked the hours from the day.
I'm going to be a very busy girl until October 4.
Thursday I woke up at 6:30 (I normally get up at 7:45) was at work by 8. Worked straight through until 6. Came home. Ate dinner while watching 15 minutes of the Kardashians, then did LSAT homework until class started at 7:30. Class finally ended 11:45 or so. This has been 4 days of this now. WTF. I don't know how people do it... though I suppose if I want to go to law school I better figure it out fast.

This story is just telling the tale that I am a). too tired to actually make up a drink for you (Pinterest to the rescue though); and b). in desperate need of several cocktails. Thankfully it's Friday. I plan on stopping by Harris Teeter on my drive home tonight. Picking up a bottle of something alcoholic and bubbly, maybe a redbox movie and probably a frozen pizza. I will then retreat to my couch where I will drink the bubbly beverage (adding in hard liquor of course), eat said pizza and zone out to some crap movie. Then retreat to my bed around 9. Put on the sleeping mask to block all possible light and CRANK UP the noise machine. Seriously. Can't think of a better night after the week I've had. 

Wow... incoherent ranting. I promise I try to avoid these, but I foresee the frequency increasing around these parts in the coming weeks. Bare with me :)

Here are some pretty pictures with links to superior bloggers with wonderful cocktail recipes that you should really try. I'm sure I'll be trying a few myself this weekend.

Have a fabulous and sleep filled weekend y'all!

I am like you. I am not a happy camper nor can I function without my correct amount of sleep. Since the move I have been sleeping about 7 hours a night. Although I am tired at the end of the day I am happy to say I am doing pretty well. I cannot even imagine embarking on something like law school. College stressed me out enough, but damn do I admire you! Enjoy those beverages, movie (see descendants if you haven't already)and pizza!

Jamie said...

OMG. LOVED the descendants! Thanks for the encouragement. I'm really excited about it, but feeling slightly overwhelmed about the amount of work it'll take to get there. But I'm sure it will be worth it one day :)
