raining pink

1. It was raining pink today in NYC! Bad for the allergies, but easy on the eyes.

2. Also, it was 600,000 degrees. I’m not necessarily complaining, but…..SPRING WHERE ART THOU.

3. The.Boy and I are totally behind on Mad Men, through no fault of our own. We miss it pretty much every weekend and then try to watch it on our cable provider’s on demand station…and I swear they put it up during daytime hours and remove it during prime time. So when I’m at home laying on the couch watching tv trash, I see that it’s there and have to wait for the.boy to watch it…but then by the time he gets home, it’s gone.

4. I’m not hallucinating, I swear.

5. Also, for those inquiring minds, my latest tv trash obsession is Married At First Sight. Yes, it is as bad as it sounds. Yes, I am addicted.

6. Our whole building has smelled like something died in it for the past two days. Thankfully it hasn’t permeated our apartment, but as soon as you step into the hallways it is DEADLY.

7. OR someone just cooked fish. A lot of really really really bad, Salmonella-ridden fish.

8. On Sunday, I bought this turmeric juice from Whole Foods thinking that it would cure my achy breaky sore 12 mile run legs…and it was the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted in my life. Has anyone else ever tried this? If not, DON’T. If so…I’m sorry.

9. I got the Original Elixir, and I really should have read the ingredients list first, but I’m still not sure why anyone thought it was a good idea to combine spearmint, cayenne, cardamom, cinnamon, turmeric, honey, lemon, and ginger all in one beverage.

10. Also, it cost an arm and both my legs. So just…really, don’t do it.

  1. Ha! I can’t believe it was so hot there! Down here in Florida we are experiencing weirdly pleasant weather for this time of year. Typically it is ridiculously hot already. Even though my environmental scientist PhD cousin says there is an ice age coming. I’m trying to enjoy the warm weather now.

  2. Oh I have watched a few Married at First Sight episode. Crazy-town! And highly addicting. And I’m all caught up on Mad Men and I can sense a Man Men hangover coming on, similar to the Grey’s hangover that I’m still suffering from. Why do our favorite shows all have to end so badly!! Makes me hurt on the inside. Also, it’s a billion degrees here too and I’m going to complain, even though I complained all winter about how flipping cold it was. I have problems. Ha. XOXO! We made it to Wednesday!

  3. That juice kind of does sound super super disgusting. Refund???

  4. It cooled down here AGAIN so you can send that warm-ish air on over to Wisconsin, please and thank ya. 🙂 And the sound of that juice does make me cringe a little. It sounds like a use-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink kinda drink. LOL.

  5. I LOVE MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT!!! Im a hopeless romantic about it and get all *swoon-y*

  6. haha. . oh my gawd, I was thinking you were going to say Temple Turmeric was awesome. . but I guess not! 🙂 and I love fish but yeah, the smell lingers. . for days. . ugh!!!

  7. Married At First Sight. Why am I still surprised when I find more evidence that shows we’re the same person?

    I think you are best to keep your legs for your runs rather than giving them away to drink such odd sounding juice 🙂

  9. Rachel says:

    I know – why is New York incapable of having spring? Why must it go from 45 degrees to 80 and humid the next day? I’m allergy-suffering this week as well!

  10. Those pink petals are too pretty. We have tons of flowering trees in our neighborhood and it looks like it’s snowing. But it’s the best snow ever!

  11. Omg turmeric juice just sounds vile! Sorry about that haha. I am a turmeric-in-curry-only kinda girl 🙂

  12. Oh dear – that drink! It sounds horrible! Good idea gone wrong, for sure.

  13. Kate says:

    I feel like if you created a Moroccan inspired recipe with those ingredients it would still taste amazing.

  14. Christine says:

    Oh those ingredients sound gross! Hope you returned it and got your $ back. Turmeric may be good for one, but only when hidden in a nice warm curry. Hope you get some spring soon!

  15. “Turmeric juice” – no, I’ve never tried anything like it – not sure I want to now after reading your “review”!

  16. oh you poor thing..elixir sounds wonderful but guess very tricky 🙁

  17. Tumeric juice sounds NASTY! LOL! But I have added it in small amounts to a smoothie, not so bad!

  18. Sarah says:

    Hahaha ok those juices sound so foul. My strategy? Never exercise… (which is likely a horrible life plan for myself so I commend your discipline and endurance). Hopefully it cools down a bit for you guys soon!

  19. Reeni says:

    It’s air conditioner weather already upstate too and I’m still wearing winter clothes. Boo on me. That juice sounds revolting! Maybe booze could make it better. . . Maybe not.

  20. Jessica says:

    Um…girl get ON that Mad Men bizness. That is no joke! Also, I HATE that your apartment building smells like that. o_O. Sorry.

  21. Hotly Spiced says:

    That juice sounds deadly. I really can’t stand the smell of fish and there is a fish shop in the shopping centre where I go to the supermarket. I have to hold my breath as I walk past otherwise I feel nauseated. I do hope whoever is causing that smell, leaves. xx

  22. Kelly says:

    Feel free to send some warmer weather our way – yesterday and today were kind of chilly. Wow, turmeric juice? I’ll totally take your word for it.

  23. Izzy says:

    The pink flowers look so pretty!! Almost worth the allergies they cause 🙂 It hasn’t quite been 600,000 degrees here yet but I just know that it is coming so soon and I’m scared! I’ve never heard of that show, Married At First Sight, but I am always on the lookout for more trashy shows to fill my life with so I will have to keep an eye out for it!

  24. I have been sooooo far behind on Mad Men, it’s embarrassing. That’s such a lovely photo of the petals, but i hear ya on allergy town!

  25. I hope the bad smell is gone from your apartment building.
