A Few Things Friday


Top of the morning to you, friends. It’s Friday, and since I suck at blogging lately and have resorted to sporadic posting once or twice a week, and can barely conceptualize complete thoughts anymore, you know what it’s time for!

That’s right: a few things Friday.

Let’s start with a success story:

Yes, that my friends is what we call a “good month.” They should be sending us a medal and a round of applause instead of a stern email notification.

Secondly, let’s talk about something that has me more than a little excited…

Yeah, this is happening this weekend. Sorry mom. At least I didn’t tell you when I was reading 50 Shades of Grey. Oh… crap.

Moving along…

I have been on a major shopping kick these last few months (mostly Target and TJ Maxx), and now I think it’s time to edit what’s currently hanging in my closet. I am setting a goal this Saturday to rummage through everything with the “1 year rule” in full-effect. AKA: If I haven’t worn something in an entire year, it goes. I’ll probably donate most of it, maybe consign some of it, but either way it got-sta go. I have way too many things that my hoarder-like intuitions are clinging to and that have no place in a 29-year-old woman’s closet. Do I like the blue striped American Eagle tube top I bought in 11th grade? Sure. But let’s get serious here. I might as well label it as the “Cougar Collection.” Wait, am I old enough to be a cougar yet? Maybe I’m just a panther… What were we saying about Magic Mike? Does anyone have any Ritalin?

And lastly, I have been on a warpath to clean up my diet, and get back into more of a challenging workout schedule. I’m checking out a new gym next week that’s much closer to my work and therefor much more likely that I’ll actually go. I’m excited for all the classes they offer, but… I’m actually kind of nervous. I liked the little community I got to know at my old gym, and I kind of feel like I’m starting at a new school. I’ll have to make sure I wear my cutest workout clothes and hide in the back of the class so no one hates me and calls me names behind my back. Also, I’ve been off the sauce during the week again, but thankfully it hasn’t been as difficult this time. I find that drinking something other than water out of a wine glass helps, as does not having an all-access pass to chilled Sauvignon Blanc.

If anything, it makes me feel kind of fancy to drink my kombucha out of a wine glass. As does wearing a tiara around the house, but it’s not like I ever do that…

Oh wait! One more thing- yesterday was my beautiful momma’s birthday, so I just wanted to say Happy Birthday, Mom, I love you! (Please don’t judge my smutty choices in bad literature and movies.)

Have a great weekend kittens xo

  1. Funny!
    Probably time to let the high school clothes go…
    My b-f still has a few things in his closet from h.s. and I’m the one who willingly and easily gets rid of things that are no longer in the rotation.
    It actually makes getting dressed easier because you have less to choose from.
    Enjoy the movie πŸ™‚

  2. Awww… happy birthday, mom! πŸ™‚

    I think I”m going to wait for Magic Mike to hit red box. I love me some Channing eye candy, but not so much Matthew M. He totally creeps me out and I don’t think I can handle him on the big screen…

  3. I kind of need to see magic mike….

    When I started at my gym I felt the same way! Definite first day of school jitters. Will they have the machines I need? Will I be able to find them? Will everyone know I’m new? Ha. Now I’m in my routine and feel established. I’m like an upper classmen..sophomore/junior. Not senior. I’m still way too scared of the tough-guy free weight area.

  4. I still have clothes from 6th grade- I’m 25 now. I’ve put some of it into boxes but I can’t get myself to take those boxes out of my room because WHAT IF they come back in style!?

  5. My closet has an embarrassing number of items circa 2001 that really need to go… but I just can’t seem to do it!

  6. Ohhhh girl. Magic Mike is happenin’ TODAY. I can’t hardly handle it lol. I’m with ya on the whole closet thing too – when I move this month I’m scrappin’ so much stuff that I keep holding onto for some insane reason but never wear (re: AmEagle sweater from 11th grade, guilty as charged haha) Have a great Fridayyyy!

  7. I can’t wait to see Magic Mike, truth. Is it not ok to still wear tube tops and stuff from high school? Crap.

  8. Drinking non-water really does help. Sometimes I think that’s why I drink, for the taste of something different. It’s not at all about the delicious buzz.

  9. I turned down an invite to see Magic Mike this weekend, but only because I wasn’t free. You better believe it’s happening! Happy birthday to your mom!

  10. I do the exact same thing with Kombucha. And it’s not nearly as good as wine (or beer!) but it’s a lot better than plain water.

  11. Hahaha 27 dollars over is better than I did this month!!! Haha I love mint.com but I’m always over budget!!!

    I need to do a closet purge as well!!!

  12. And this is why I had to cancel my Mint account. It made me too aware of my spending foibles. I’d rather be happily in denial.

  13. I like to go in and adjust my budgets when I’m getting to close to the blowing them.Totally counter productive, but it makes me feel better. πŸ˜‰ I am DYING to see Magic Mike. I haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey, but will take some half naked men on the big screen any day of the week.

  14. I have such a love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with Mint. I like to go in and adjust my budgets when I’m getting to close to the blowing them.Totally counter productive, but it makes me feel better. πŸ˜‰ I am DYING to see Magic Mike. I haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey, but will take some half naked men on the big screen any day of the week.

  15. Ha! I’m just glad to see I’m not the only one with an “alcohol/entertainment” category in my budget πŸ˜‰

  16. Happy Birthday to your mom!! (Belated)

    I definitely need to get on the wagon with my eating too…it’s been one carb after another while on vacation. πŸ™

    Happy 4th!!

  17. All the cool kids are blogging less…..like me. Ok, thats the only other one I know since *ahem* I havent been blogging or reading blogs as of late.

    But enough blogging talk, how was Magic Mike??
