Sometimes you have a weird day at work and you feel sad and you just want to come home and watch The Hills and pretend it’s your life for a little while.

Life in Soda City

So I had a little date with my flat iron on Monday. I tucked it away nicely back at the beginning of summer because a) who really has time to flat iron their hair in 95 degree weather and b) I wanted to give it a break from heat tools. I air dried all summer and it made my life way easy. But I decided to go cut a fresh cut and wake the flat iron up from hibernation and I must say, my hair appreciated the break! I mean granted I did just get it cut too which makes it feel pretty good but it’s really healthy and I recommended doing some lengthy air drying. It’s also kind of fun to see what your hair WANTS to do instead of you force it to do. Just let it do it’s thing.

That’s enough about that. In other news, my car has been doing lots of breaking this month and putting me out a stupid amount of money and making my bank account v sad. And me v sad. This girl needs new work clothes BAD and it’s just not in the cards. I broke down and bought myself one new ($11) blouse but that won’t really cut it.

We helped our buddies move last night into an adorable house in our “hood” and I am excited for them. I sometimes don’t appreciate how awesome it is that most of my closest friends live within 5-10 minutes of my house. And I don’t take advantage of it enough and one day, and I know at some the day will come, it will require planning to see one another and I am going to kick myself for taking it all for granted. 

The Burn is Real

We celebrated Alicia’s birthday yesterday with a four hour river adventure and my calves are BURNT. Like, hurts to walk, ankles are swollen, burnt. Which has never happened before. That’s not true, it probably has, but OUCH.

I also lost my flip flops trying to crawl out of the river at the end so that was fun. Luckily they were 2 dollar Old Navy flip flops so really, who cares.

I took a pretty glorious nap afterwards and then we all met back up for a BBQ at Alicia and Nate’s place. I did a lot of Taylor Swift singing and dancing. And I drank a lot of soda without realizing and was so disgusted with myself when I did realize that I quit drinking all together.

On a completely different note, my bangs are in this really awful stage in length right now that I don’t know how to style. I have a hair appointment Tuesday but I think I may want to start growing them out but someone needs to fix them ASAP. They are gross.

Today’s struggle though: Do I go to Bed Bath & Beyond for new sheets or do I keep putting it off and continue to have only one set. Important things.

Sorry I keep disappearing for weeks at a time. I am here, just lurking in the background.
We got our Save The Dates out - so that is one less thing. But now I am heavily stressed out by flowers. I feel like I had no trouble getting in touch with vendors when this planning process started. Now, it’s as if every time I try to contact a florist or makeup artist I am ignored. I am giving everyone the benefit of the doubt because it is summer aka wedding season so I am sure they are busy but come on. This girl needs flowers and a hairdo!
On Sunday we painted our guest room in preparation for my parents coming to town today. I got about 1/2 way through before we realized the previous homeowners had actually put wallpaper on this walls and it was bubbling off and looking terrible in some spots. We got really annoyed, stopped painting and ate some lunch and ultimately decided to just keep going. Only the one wall looked bad and it was behind the door so we figured we could get away with it for a few months and when we had time, rip down the wallpaper and do that wall over. When we finished, we let the paint try and watched some tv and had some dinner. When I went back in to check on the paint, it was as if the wallpaper had never happened. It was very bizarre, but it had dried flat. Talk about relieved! Though we do need to touch it up some but boy was I happy.
 Anyway, so my parents are headed to our house this afternoon to spend the night. They haven’t seen the place since we came with the realtor the day we put in an offer and I like to think we have improved it for the better since then. They are bringing us my bed from their house among about a million other things since they moved and downsized so it will sort of be like Christmas! Except with a bunch of old stuff from my parents house. We moved our current bed frame into the guest room last night so we can put the new one in our room, so we slept on the mattress on our bedroom floor last night. Which made me feel like a college aged boy and caused me to get no sleep but oh well. 
Happy Tuesday!
