Exhausted

I am so tired. I wake up in the morning and feel like I haven’t slept at all. I’m pretty sure my brain just won’t turn off. I woke up this morning with bags under my eyes for the very first time. I know that it’s common for people to get bags under their eyes, but somehow I have gone 33 years without ever having them. Ugh. Praying I can shut off my thoughts this weekend.

I have a real problem. I see kids on the street all the time riding their bikes or skateboarding and NOT WEARING THEIR HELMETS! I know it’s against the law, but it’s also super dangerous. And the most annoying part is that I see so many of them with their helmet hanging on their handlebars or they are wearing it unbuckled. I seriously want to yell at them to protect their noggins or get their mom’s number, so I can give her a call and let her know how the helmet is not being utilized effectively. Bah!

Feel the Beat

I was on the dance team in high school for two years, Varsity cheer the next two years and then did numerous dance classes through college. Because of these countless years of learning dance routines, I ALWAYS can hear a 5-6-7-8 with every song I listen to. I will be driving along listening to the radio and am subconsciously counting off a 1 to 8 beat in my head. Does this happen to anyone else? I seriously would have thought that would have stopped by now. I also choreograph dances to do in the car, but that’s a story for another day. ;)

Friday Inspiration

I certainly had fun with the “Blouse Over Dress Challenge” and I hope you did too.

Here are some great examples for some Friday inspiration:

1-April killed it with her sweater/dress combo. Check out her fantastic blog here.

One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard and one that I pass on to my students is:

“If you have to make small talk with someone and you have no idea what to say, ask them what television shows they watch.”

Because almost everybody watches TV and it is a great conversation starter.

So…what shows have you been watching? I can’t get enough TV. It’s bad. I’m loving the new show “Manhattan Love Story”. It’s super cute…kinda like watching a RomCom movie but spread out over episodes. I’ve also been watching my old shows like “Revenge”, “Once Upon A Time”, “Castle”, “Nashville” (I guess ABC has got me hook, line and sinker), “Reign”, “New Girl” and of course “Brooklyn 99″.

Sooooooooooooooooooo…I don’t have much to say today (fancy that), but here’s an outfit for you made completely out of thrifted and hand-me-down clothes. Who says you have to spend tons of money on your clothes to look cute?! FALSE! BTW, I am totally free to go thrifting with anyone anytime. Just let me know. Peace out for today.

That One Thing

 I have a friend that travels a lot. And I find myself being really jealous of her. I mentioned how envious I was of her and she commented that its all in where you decide to spend your money. That traveling is her ONE thing. And I started thinking…
“What is my one thing that I don’t mind spending money on?”

I live to thrift shop/garage sale, so spending even $15 on a shirt sometimes seems excessive, but I hardly ever blink an eye when it comes to my hair. I LOVE to get my hair done every other month and am beyond lucky to have an amazingly talented stylist (who I also am blessed to call a friend). Whether it is hair products, bobby pins or hair tools (curling irons, crimpers, wavers, etc…I have them all), I want the best money can buy. Those things are not the items that I will end up buying at a thrift store.

So what is your one thing?
