monday morning musings

I’m stuck at the VW dealership without my kindle so I guess I should blog to pass the time.

They have donuts here. I just had a blueberry cake donut. Those are my favorite.

One of the techs was showing me fancy shit my car does and he was like, “It’s good for young ladies like you to learn this stuff,” and I was thinking lol how old do you think I am. I’m pretty sure I don’t qualify as a young lady anymore.

It’s this sweet ass skin of mine that confuses people. Thanks, dad! And, of course, it helps that I’m basically a vampire.

So anyway…last night the husband and I went to see Phantom of the Opera, and it was fantastic. I’m not a huge fan of musicals anymore, but I wanted to do this for fifteen year old Jenn, who was obsessed with musicals, and never got to see a live performance of Phantom. I bought super expensive seats because yolo.

Shout out to my husband for being a very good sport about it, considering it was very much not his jam.

We’re actually going to see Book of Mormon in a couple of weeks, and shockingly that was his idea, not mine. We’re going with the bestie and her man. I’m certain it will be a good time. And next time I plan on hitting up the champagne bar ahead of time. Last night, I was served cold cabernet at the venue, and just no, no, no.

In other news, I desperately need to start exercising again. I need it to stop raining though because I hate the treadmill.

But ugh…I feel fatter than ever, and timehop keeps showing me how fit I was just two years ago. *cries*

I look super frumpy today so no ootd pic. Tomorrow I’m hoping to wear a super cute skirt I acquired via Poshmark. Green with white polka dots. 😍 I just need to find a top that will work with it.

I hate wishing my life away, but I’m already yearning for next weekend. There’s just too much adulting between now and then. Meh.

Peace out for now.

11:53 pm

It’s almost Monday. Boo to that.

The good news:

  • Jackson’s last day of school is Thursday! Woo to the hoo! summer vacay!
  • It’s a short work week: we’re leaving for Atlanta on Friday morning.

That’s all I’ve got for now,

I’m having one of those days where I want to blog about the various things going on in my life, but it just doesn’t feel right when I write it out.

I think part of it is that I’ve been concentrating on living in the moment and enjoying the little things lately, so it feels almost like I’m betraying that journey somehow when I write about it.


Bio Ionic One Pass

This is hands down the best flat iron I’ve ever owned. It has silicone on the plates, which helps prevent pulling and heat damage, while creating a smooth finish. I really do only need to do one pass most of the time. It’s pricey. I paid $230 for mine at the salon, but you can get it a bit cheaper online.

I’ve been having a lot of good hair days since I acquired this baby. Just thought I’d share!
