I’m not going to lie – this was not on our blog content calendar, however, writing a post that is supposed to look all pretty and has some life-changing content[ie: what to wear to work] doesn’t seem overly appealing this morning. As I sit here in mix-matched pajamas, kleenex hanging out of my nose and hair that is literally everywhere right now, I feel like writing a post that doesn’t match my current disastrous state would be a bit fraud like because let’s face it, sometimes life feels nothing like pretty pictures and cute outfits. This morning I’m just going to walk you through a few different things floating around in my mind [warning: it’s mostly snot thanks to this cold lingering around all week]. Fun! Let’s get started!
I think we can all admit we’ve had better weeks. Waking up on Monday was weird. First, because we didn’t have any power in our house for whatever random reason, but then for a dramatically different reason as soon as we reached for our phones and saw the news alerts all over our phones of what had happened in Las Vegas Sunday evening. Throw getting a cold into the mix, starting my period and the news that Tom Petty passed away and yeah, Monday was not my favorite day of life. I could expand on all of the above, however, I kinda did in my newsletter [sign up at the top of the page if you so desire] this morning and am trying to shift my mindset to a more positive place so we’ll leave it all at that!
Do you ever get into soup slumps? Like where all you eat is soup. I think it’s my body’s way of celebrating that fall is here. Chili, chicken and wild rice, tortilla, it doesn’t matter – just give me alllllll of the soup. Side note: I put approximately 5 packs of crackers in every bowl of soup I eat. So really I’m just eating a bowl of soggy crackers. And it’s amazing.
I am 99.9% confident that I am allergic to all of the candles that I burn in my house, however, I would rather live a life of sickness than to never be able to smell cider doughnut, autumn leaves or cinnamon apple pumpkin spice floating around my house.
We are going to see Garth Brooks this weekend which makes me feel like I am finally a true country music fan and have risen above my adoration for bro country [ie: Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Chase Rice, etc]. Don’t get me wrong, I still love those boys but getting to see somebody a little more rooted in this country music industry should be fun. Call me mature, it’s fine. I’m used to it. #nobodyhasevercalledmethat.
Where does snot come from? This is a real question.
Is before 8:00 am too early to eat a chicken taco? Again, a real question.
Last night I found myself spiraling down the rabbit hole of playing the whole comparison game via social media. WHY DO WE DO THIS TO OURSELVES? We have to stop. Or maybe I just need to stop. I’ll admit, comparing myself to others isn’t a common practice, however, the times when it happens it is the most defeating, exhausting, life-questioning moments ever and it sucks. You are enough. I am enough. Moving on now.
When do you start shopping for Christmas? Please say December 24th. It will make me feel much better about myself. I need it after last night’s comparison game.
What happened with The Today Show? I don’t get this whole Megan show thing and I don’t know if I’m okay with it. Thank God Kathie Lee and Hoda are still around, or else.
A small [large] part of me wants to lay on the couch and watch Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and 10 Things I Hate About You all day long. And maybe eat chicken wings. #goals
None of that is going to happen, however, if I keep writing here. Sorry friends, I’ve got things to do and wings to eat. Make it a good weekend kids and in the words of Ricky Martin – livin’ la vida loca.
ps. I have no clue where that came from.
