Awkward-Awesome Thursday

    -Pulling up to a stop light. Car next to me is cutting, smelling, and rolling the fattest cigar I have ever seen. It's 7:00 in the morning. Driver looks away sheepishly. Guess some of us don't need coffee.
  - Explaining to a 5 year old that "No, God really didn't make my legs gray and hole-y like cheese. Yes, yes I promise they are just tights. Um, no, you can't see."
  - Do you ever catch ole Coach Lou Holtz on ESPN? One of the sports commentators?  His lateral lisp is so ferocious, it's like nails on a chalkboard to me.

   - Lays Dill Pickle potato chips. A pleasant alternative to heavenly Salt and Vinegar chips.
  - The Twilight: Breaking Dawn soundtrack that I've been blasting since Tues. Do I have all of them so far? Yes, yes I do. On an ACTUAL CD. Don't judge.
  - coming to the realization that some people just can't see the forest for the trees. You wish, hope, pray, beg for a difference. Silence. You beg, plead, pray more fervently. Nothing. But then one day you wake up and realize all the energy you spend wishing, hoping, praying, is all a waste. Because they can't see the larger picture, and never will. And that is ok.

It's Here! November Birchbox..

Lookie what came in the mail for me!

The November Birchbox, and my first one ever. A few weeks ago I signed up to receive this little nifty monthly present. When I staggered home from school today, Mr. Postman had my surprise ready for me!

Drum roll, please...

So, if you can't read the card, I received:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Mascara
  • Be Fine Night Cream
  • Kerastase Hair Elixir Oil
  • Supersmile Whitening Toothpaste
  • Alex and Isabelle Pony Tail Hair Wraps
Ok, so I am pretty excited, except for that they didn't include the ponytail wraps. No biggie, since I have trillions of them anyway. But the other stuff? Right up my ally!

Slow and Steady Wins the Race..

Hooray for Halfway!!

Remember my latest super adventurous project? Did you guess what I'm working on?
Yes, a quilt.
Yes, I'm under 30.
Yes, this is only like my 5th sewing project EVER.
Move over Maw- Maw.

Alllllllll last month I painstakingly cut, cursed, screamed, sewed, and ironed the 504 pieces for the top. Now that I have all the pieces, I've started to lay everything out.
Here is another sneak peak
('Scuse the upstairs lighting)

And my other lofty goal?
I'm REALLY hoping I can knock it out by the end of the year.
Yeah, the WHOLE quilt.

Less and Less

Mi madre is an accountant by trade. Naturally, she likes numbers, the stock market, advanced trigonometry, inventing new budgets, calculators and such. Snooze. 
A few weeks ago, out of the blue, she shared that she read some Gap stores were really struggling finacially, sales were down, and some stores would be shut.

Do you still shop at Gap? How 'bout on a regular basis? Their kiddo clothes are pretty cute, but what about for adults? I like it in waves. Some seasons I LOVE it. But then some seasons- fuhgettabout it.

Figuring I would go help stimulate the economy, I popped into mine.
 40% off the Sale? Gold mine.

Here is what I nabbed:


Did I pay those online prices? No way, madre, no way. I know better.
After the discount, I paid $8, $10 and $9, respectively.
Sometimes you just gotta huff it to the store.
