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.
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.
