Here's a way to tell that it's actually really cold in Nashville (or a way to tell that I am totally a Californian who has never dressed for actual cold): when I'm wearing my corduroy pants.
When I'm laying in bed after hitting snooze a dozen times, and my weather app reads 3 degrees (true life, wtf Nashville) I know I'll need as many layers as I can muster, a long coat, hat gloves scarf, probably rainboots, and pants of some sort. I don't know that corduroys are any warmer than jeans, but it's a mental thing that keeps me slightly cozier.

Enough about the cold. I'll bet it's cold wherever you're reading this too! Last week was totally weird. These pictures make it look like we got snow in Nashville, but we never got more than an inch. What you're seeing here is ice that never melted, all week long.
I keep telling people this as the silliest anecdote to describe the city "being on lockdown": I had Preds (vs. Sharks, how's that for regionally confused sports fandoms??) hockey tickets for Tuesday night, and the Preds scored 5 goals so we earned a free Frosty with our ticket, but WENDY'S WAS CLOSED. So, legit lockdown.
I lived in this thermal and beanie for three days, and when I finally went back to work I had one of those "omg my hair is so dirty and I didn't even realize because I've been living inside of a beanie I can't wait to go home and shower" moments.
So, yeah. Highlights and lowlights of the week.
So things are pretty much back to normal. Things on my mind:
- Amanda's bachelorette party on Friday/Saturday
- Sundar coming to town Friday night (tbd due to weather)
- Amanda's bridal shower Sunday
- going home NEXT WEEKEND, yippee! Everyone, including Huntee, will be there, and Tarif is starring in another show!
Hope you all are staying warm and not losing your sparkle (Bachelor Season 17, anyone?)
Thanks for reading!
