+ Having my neighbor knock on our door to let me know that I left my keys hanging in the lock outside. For someone that is super paranoid about locked doors and security in general, I can't believe I did that!
+ Spending 10+ minutes trying to pick out a new razor at the store for my husband. Why are there so many options? And what do things like "Hybrid Advanced Blades" or "Pivot Plus with Lubricating Strips" even mean?
+ The fact that I've been married for 10 months now and I still can't sign my name properly. My first name looks beautiful and then it all goes downhill with my last name scribbles.
+ Holding up traffic to parallel park. I must say, living in Chicago has made me a professional parallel parker but it's still awkward when you've got cars lined up waiting on you to squeeze your car in the tiniest spot known to man. Talk about pressure.
+ I always keep a travel size bottle of Tylenol in my purse. Sometimes I'll be walking down the street and the pills will be rattling around in the bottle SO loudly. Love it when people give me the side eye trying to figure out what drugs I've got in there.
+ I love the ladies at my nail salon but I feel terrible that I can never understand what they're saying. I always feel like the biggest jerk saying "what?" after everything they say to me.
+ Lease negotiations with your landlord are not that fun. More info about that coming soon!
+ Allergies make me just want to stay holed up in my apartment. My nose is bright red and sniffly, my eyes are bloodshot and I've got a sinus headache pretty much 24/7. Not a pretty look.
+ So I'm still driving my car from high school and for the most part, it's still holding up really well. Living downtown, I rarely drive so there is no point in spending the money on a new car right now. However, for the last year I've had to deal with the little problem of my windows not staying rolled up. Yes, they actually fall down. Every couple of days I have to go and manually pull the windows back up with my hands.

+ Our plans for our Charleston anniversary trip are coming along! It's hard to believe we'll be celebrating our first anniversary in only a couple of months. I'll be sharing more info about our trip soon.
+ Eating this cake for breakfast. It has fruit in it so it's basically healthy. No shame.
+ There are few things better than freshly washed sheets. Clean sheets and rain on the roof made for the best nights sleep ever last night.
+ The fact that there is finally no snow in the 10 day forecast. FINALLY. Bring it on spring.
+ I'm so terrible about reading. I love it but never make the time for it. The last two days, I have made a point to sit down and read and it was so nice. It was fun to get into a book again!
+ Have I been living in a cave? I just discovered Warby Parker and I'll take one of each pair of sunglasses, please.
+ I take a hot shower every night and it might be my favorite part of the day. I'm not a big bath person but I'll stand in the shower for an hour if you let me. Thank goodness we live in a building with unlimited hot water.
+ Instagram. I just love it. I've always liked taking pictures so it's definitely my favorite form of social media. Follow me here :)
+ Cute red shorts from Forever 21 for only $8.80. On their way to me now!
Happy Tuesday! Linking up with Khala and friends for Tuesday Tea.
