things i learned in 2012.

Here is a random (and totally not comprehensive) list of things i learned in 2012: 
  • Stefon, city correspondent on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update, is the funniest thing i have ever seen. Ever. 
  • A little bit of olive oil goes a long way. 
  • When YSL heels are 40% off, you buy a pair. 
  • Houston is humid, even in march. 
  • Vegas can be an awesome place to relax (non-gaming hotel + breakfast by the pool + spa treatments + cocktails by the pool + dinner out + in bed by 10:00 p.m. = amazing vacation) 
  • Peplum is flattering. 
  • Carbs are the devil. 
  • Your purse can never be too big.
  • It's totally worthwhile to spend a lot on shoes and then buy clothes from Forever 21.
  • Nothing is more rewarding than a job well done. 
  • The Chicago architecture tour never gets old. 
  • Slot machines are actually really confusing. 
  • Old dogs are the best dogs. 
  • There's a chance that someone will hit you with a sock full of poop on the blue line.
  • It's okay to say no when people ask if you like to cook.
  • It's best to stack all your gold jewelry on one arm at one time.
  • Some popularity contests are worth winning. Others are not. 
  • The movie Clueless never gets old.
  • Starbucks has the best doughnuts.
  • Prosecco goes well with everything.
  • I reallyreallyreallyreally hate guns. 
  • Moncler coats are worth it…especially if you live in Chicago!
  • If you're sitting next to a bunch of UVA alums at a wedding, it's best to bite your tongue when you think of a snarky joke about Dave Matthews Band/Bodo's Bagels/Thomas Jefferson.
  • Crossing the US/Mexican border on foot is interesting but also sort of sad.
  • Having more work is better than less work.
  • Sock buns rock. 
  • The more eye makeup, the better. 
  • Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey are the best television shows.
  • Diet Coke is poison. 
  • I want to live in a house that looks like the Ralph Lauren store on Michigan Ave.
  • Best friends are family.
  • Photographs make the best gifts.
  • After 30, red eye flights will actually give you red eyes. 
  • I'd probably do really well living in Denmark 
  • Rdio is better than Spotify
  • My husband and I make one fierce little team.
