(Shirt & Skirt-thrifted  Bracelet & Shoes-HandMeDown)

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?

Pounds of Hair

I’m losing weight, which is awesome, although I’m starting to suspect that all of those pounds lost are just from my hair falling out. But seriously, at what point do I get concerned that this amount of hair loss is not normal?! I would have thought that after four months of having a baby my hair would stop falling out. It’s getting scary seeing handfuls of my hair EVERYWHERE. Has this happened to anyone else? I’m worried I’m losing too much hair.

Yoga Me Ridiculous

I went to a yoga class with a friend the other day. It was my very first yoga class and here are my impressions:

-People wear yoga pants so that they don’t have to look at their cellulite dimples while they hold the downward dog position. I made the mistake of wearing shorts.

-The music they play is crazy hypnotizing.

-While we were laying on the floor in corpse pose and focusing our breathing and completely relaxing our muscles, my nose itched like crazy, so I just had to fight the urge to scratch it. Equal parts hilarious and ridiculous.

-I am all for any exercise that purposefully lays on the ground for five minutes at the end of the workout.

Decisions, Decisions

I started school last week and so far I have been able to be dressed every single day (Hurray for no nakedness!). My oldest started kindergarten on Monday. He’s been in preschool for the past two years, so I didn’t think it’d be that hard, but I’m not gonna lie, I shed a few tears after I dropped him off. We also have been making decisions about AM or PM kindergarten and preschool placement for my middle son and as a naturally decisive person, I am totally waffling! Is this normal?! Why are these decisions so hard to make?! I think I am placing too much emphasis on the gigantic future impact it will make on their lives, but as a first-time elementary parent, I am struggling. (Experienced parents, you can laugh at me now.)

Last Meal

I am OBSESSED with cookie butter. I will eat it by the spoonful: original, crunchy or mixed with chocolate. If you haven’t discovered the beauty that is cookie butter, I suggest you track down your nearest Trader Joe’s and drive (even if it is two hours away) and buy it immediately! If I was in some sort of situation that I had to choose my last meal, I would 100% for sure include cookie butter in one way or another. What would you request for your last meal? Don’t think about the possible execution part that would gruesomely follow, just the delicious food that you could consume beforehand.

I know that normally I have some clever “verbal vomit” to put out with each post, but things have been so nuts lately, so I figured I’d just catch you up on my life happenings:

-I entered a black and white portrait of my husband into the fair photography contest. I’m really hoping I get in, but most of all I can’t WAIT for the fair to start!

-We celebrated two birthdays this weekend (my niece and my dad), so my belly is contently full of celebratory sugary desserts.

-We are making a hallway to nowhere in our house (long story…I’ll explain later), so we spent a good part of the weekend texturing, priming and painting. I’m beat.

-I am pretty sure I am giving birth to a baby ninja or an octopus. Either way, he NEVER stops moving. And I can’t wait to meet him. 🙂
