Awkward-Awesome Thursday...

 Oh, hey friends.
 It's been so long since we've talked. And I've really missed you! Work, work, work has kept me feeling like some crazed bumble bee you can't swat- buzzing around all over the place. But, now that I have a minute, let's catch up, shall we?


Awkward:

- Attempting to drink a gulp of Mtn. Dew but having it just run out of your mouth. Whilst others watch you.  Yes, a fine example of motor planning, indeed.

- Christian Grey. See also: Awesome.

- Learning that some things are completely beyond my grasp and beyond my control. This week, especially, has been profoundly trying. I feel like I'm on a beach, wearing my coconut bra and hula skirt, watching a tsunami wave grow and grow. Rising up to pelt the daylights out of me...But you know, sometimes, the only way to deal with things is not to run but just go right through them. Weather the storm as best as you can, and then pick up the banged up pieces later. I think I'll tighten my coconut bra straps tighter, now.


Awesome:

-Shhhhhhhhhh... Don't tell. Back around Christmas time, a good work pal and I popped into a local store. On a TOTAL whim, she grabbed a job application.  And then grabbed one for me, too. Apparently, I was to be her "wing man" and fill it out also. Well, we both got the job. Gulp. Was I looking for a 2nd job? No. Had I even considered doing anything else, even part-time? No. What's that you say? Where are we? I'm not sure I can tell you. But I'll let you guess. Here's a hint. It starts with an "A"........and rhymes with "Thropologie".

- Man, I am digging sequins lately. Yes, Tina-Turner-back-up-singer-Proud-Mary-Keep-on-Rolling sequins. I've wanted an all sequin T-shirt or blouse or... something for awhile, now. Just a little over the top bling. So when I found this sequin moto jacket from MJR sales, I knew it was perfect. And for 14.99? Bingo.

- A side note about MJR sales. This lady turned me onto the site. Basically, they take over all of Express' and Victoria's Secret's (and a few more brands) leftovers and re-sell. For a much cheaper price. My new moto jacket will be from Express. Bras, undies, shoes, dresses, men's, you name it. You just gotta dig around, though. You're welcome.

-No really... shhhhhh... shhhhhhh... if you are looking for a new book series: Fifty Shades of Grey. That's all I'll say.

-  From one of my sweet families, beautiful burnt orange tulips and a kind word, on the last day of therapy. It's the little things, I tell ya'.

Whoa! That MJR site is INSANE! Thanks!

So, you're taking a part-time job at an awesome store? That's worth it's weight in the employee discount!

Email me if you need/want!
