Day 245: BAU Monday

A tiny part of my hoped that work would be cancelled today – but all the ice has already melted and there’s nothing white left on Atlanta’s roads. Since I’m sure everyone else is getting sick and tired of hearing me talk about the weather, let’s move on.

Anyways, today was just what we call in my line of work BAU, or business as usual. Actually funny story, when I first started working, everyone kept saying “let’s just run with BAU” and “the BAU is fine.” Eventually through context clues I figured out they weren’t referencing Criminal Minds‘ behavioral analysis unit, but it still took me about four months to find out what BAU means!

These pants I bought over a year ago, but they were about two inches too long for me (even with heels!). A month ago I finally brought them to the tailors and I’m so glad I did. It’s like having a new pair of pants! I matched it with this wishbone necklace my mom got me for Christmas and kept the rest of the outfit super simple.

Day 126: Prepping for Fall Premiers

Since I work in the peripheral of the entertainment industry, I feel it’s my duty to stay up to date on shows. At least, that’s what I tell myself when I waste hours in front of my TV/computer screen. So here’s the list of shows that I can’t wait for!

The Show That’s Been On Forever That Everyone Forgets is Still On: Law & Order: SVU
Anyone who has cable TV has seen this show. Even though it started before I fully understood the birds and the bees, I caught up in college. Now I think of Olivia Benson as my spirit animal – I’ve always wanted to shoot a gun. The saving lives business is an added bonus.

The Trashy Show That I Pretend I Don’t Watch: Teen Mom OG/Teen Mom 2
I am way too invested in these girls’ lives. There’s some I absolutely hate (Janelle, please stop crying and get your life together) and some that I want to be their best friend (Seriously though, how does Maci have SO MANY friends). This is 100% my guilty pleasure.

The Shows I Watch Because Everyone Else Does: Big Bang Theory
L got me hooked on Big Bang Theory to soothe my How I Met Your Mother showhole. I can’t wait to see this upcoming season. Also, you remember L’s friend P (from the Train concert and from the Peachtree Sizzler 10k)? He is Sheldon Cooper in real life…. which I’m pretty sure makes me Penny which I am 100% okay with.

The New Shows I’m Obsessed With: Chicago PD, Younger
The content of both of these shows is 100% different, but I love the awesome female leads in both! Who can’t relate to Detective Lindsay (Sophia Bush) who is incredibly headstrong and definitely far from perfect? The premise of Younger is definitely a little more ditsy, but I absolutely love Kelsey Peters (Hilary Duff). Kelsey is basically who I think grown up Lizzie McGuire would be.

The Train-wreck Show: Criminal Minds
The beautiful Agent Morgan is out of the picture and now Agent Hotchner is gone due to an issue with the actor. Let’s be real – Criminal Minds hasn’t really been good for a while now, but I can’t leave. I think this show is my version of an abusive relationships.

The Shows I Wish I Watched and Need To Start Bingeing: Parks & Recs, West Wing, Scandal, House of Cards, Newsroom, Drop Dead Diva
My list is long. Send me amazing shows so I can make it longer.

Today I built my whole outfit around this necklace! I started with this super soft black shirt and built down from there. When I was deciding my shoes, I realized I needed a pop of color!

Sound off – what shows am I missing? Any you can’t wait to see?
