Happy Friday everyone! I am feeling so “blah” this week and I am so glad that the week is over. The biggest thing that has me down is the weather. The weather was very “spring like” earlier this month and now we are back to winter. Snowing and cold temperatures are depressing.
There are a few things that are new in my life and things that are on my mind lately that I figured I should get out via blog post. Let’s start with…
Earlier last week I decided that it was finally time to get a hair cut. My last trim was 6 months ago. It was LONG overdue. I had been getting sick of the lack of style so I took the plunge and chopped off a bunch of locks! So far, I’m loving the shorter style. It’s fairly easy to take care of because my hair is naturally very straight. I'm sure I’ll be sick of it in another month though…ha ha
I swear, it seems like every blogger and their dog is in an uproar about Google reader going down. And honestly, I could care less. I never used my google reader and read all my blogs though the Dashboard. So, I don’t really get the big deal. I will NOT be getting a bloglovin’ account and I will not join bloglovin’ to read other blogs. I mean, what if a blog I like doesn’t start using bloglovin’, I won’t be able to read it? So I say, screw bloglovin’ and everyone should just use the dashboard! So much easier!
It would have been an awesome drinking game though! Taking a shot for every blogger that said “bloglovin’” yesterday via post or twitter…I would have been HAMMERED!
Four year old…*tear*
I MAY have gotten a little choked up on Tuesday when I went over to visit this little cutie on her big 4th birthday! I was a little proud that she loved her new Easter dress that we got her and insisted on putting it on right away! She is such a girly-girl! There’s just something about the age of 4 that seems special to me. First, it makes me feel super old that 4 years have passed since she was born. Second, 4 just seems so grown up. She’s a kid. A full blown, ankle biting, talking back, attitude giving and yet amazing child. I just love her so much!
Clearing getting ready to bite my ankles here…
My husband (and a bunch of guys) are going to Myrtle Beach for a golf trip early in the spring. Where he is staying just happens to conveniently beside an outlet mall. I may have warned him within an inch of his life that if he brings back a rinky-dinky Myrtle Beach key chain when he is BESIDE an outlet mall he will be in trouble.
So to give him some help, I’ve been texting him pictures of potential souvenir options.
Get shopping hunny! :-)
Truth be told, I actually don’t mind working out. But, I am REALLY getting sick of indoor workouts. I want some fresh air and sunshine! Shockingly, I want to get running outdoors again! I haven’t run all winter long and I want to get out there and get moving again.
I think I need this shirt though for that extra “push”! ;)
That little teaser of spring got me thinking about my current wardrobe! As you may remember, I went through my closet and tossed a bunch of old stuff. Most of that stuff was from my college days. The “fancy” things that I’d wear out to the bars. I have no need for those kind of cloths anymore. Now, I wear a uniform every workday and immediately when I get home, change into yoga pants. On occasion I go for supper out, church and maybe a couple other birthday/shower events as well.
While going through my current wardrobe (and using my pinterest style board) I started trying to make different outfits with the pieces that I have. I am need in some basic things one of them being a striped shirt like this one below! I need a spring shopping trip, STAT!
Being that I live in a VERY small town, we don’t have any where to actually go for coffee like a Starbucks or Tim Hortons. Sometimes, there will be workers coming from the city and will bring coffee (sucking up works!).
Roll Up The Rim To Win contest is famous in Canada and every year us Northerners roll up our rims to try and get some free stuff.
Being that I don’t easily have access to a Tim Hortons, I don’t play that often. But, I am really lucky this year. For the 3 times that I have actually had a Tim’s coffee, I have won every time! Going on 3 for 3! 2 donuts and 1 coffee! At this rate, I’ll win something big soon….hopefully!
Happy Friday everyone!
