Inside Out

Today was one of those days ...

I heard my alarm go off, I hit snooze. I heard it go off again and I hit snooze. And after hitting snooze not once, not twice, but six (yes six) times and I instantly realized I woke up an hour late. Great.

No, I wasn't late to work ... well not that late but I totally skipped out on my gym time and dog walking time. So in this panic rush, I was running around finding clothes. Of course, everything I planned to dry before work was in the dryer. I had a long debate about if I throw them in now, will they be dry enough to wear in 30 minutes? I'm sure you've had those days where you put on the slightly wet clothes because you have no time for them to get completely dry.

Well, I threw the clothes in the dryer and jumped in the shower. No I didn't slip and fall. :) I threw on my clothes and prepared to run out the door. Unfortunately my dog had a different idea. She bolted! Took off running and here I had to go running in flip flops in 96 degree weather to chase her down. I finally got her, and let's just say I wasn't nice.

I got to work about 10 minutes late. Not too bad since I usually have to stay late anyways. Well being at work for about an hour I went to the bathroom and realized I put my panties on inside out. Yep, I was in such a hurry I didn't even notice. Instead of taking my pants off in the dirty public bathroom I just dealt with it, but never felt the same after that.

What crazy things have you done when you had to rush somewhere?

Gym Etiquette 101

There is something to be said about gym etiquette. I mean I haven't been to the gym in awhile, and upon walking in there today I instantly remembered things I hated. Don't get me wrong ... I love going to work out, but sometimes the people there drive me crazy! In light of this, I have made my own rules for gym etiquette.

  1. Put on deodorant, lots of it if you need to! People do not like the smell of body odor.
  2. Also, if you decide to wear perfume, don't marinate in it.
  3. Please clean the machines when you are done... there is something really gross about having my hands on your sweat!
  4. Just because sports bra's come in all sizes, doesn't mean you shouldn't wear a shirt over it.
  5. Turn the music down. I don't need to know which gangsta rap song you are listening to.
  6. Don't sing out loud.
  7. Don't make your friends do the same workout as you so you can chit-chat. If you can still talk without heavy breathing then you are wasting your time.
  8. Don't stare at people ... it's creepy.
  9. The gym is not a beauty contest. You don't need to come in with perfect hair and perfect make-up. If you leave that way, you wasted your time.
  10. Stop the outrageous grunts. It's not attractive and in fact it's annoying.
  11. Put your weights back. Also, put them back in the correct spot. There is nothing worse than falling flat on your face because you tripped over a weight.
  12. A towel or water bottle is not a reserve sign. Sorry, but you can't go talk to your friend for 15 minutes and expect your machine to still be empty.

Pink vagina couch?

Sometimes you want a lazy boy, sometimes you want a rocking chair, and other times you want a pink upholstered vagina couch.

Yes my friends, you read that right! Craigslist is offering one lucky man person the couch of his their dreams!!

"For Sale - beautiful pink "vagina couch" that I made in art school and no longer have space for. The couch is large: measures 5' 3" long, 3' 3" wide at the middle, and stands 2' 3" tall (and is heavy like a couch). The pics are from my portfolio and are several years old; as a result, the couch has some scuffmarks and stains around the bottom from being moved, but otherwise is in excellent shape. A professional upholsterer helped me build the couch, so it is also functional and durable as a piece of furniture. The couch must be picked up in
Mendocino, a 3-hour drive north of SF. I am asking for $600 and a loving home! Call Willow at [deleted] or reply to posting.

Feel free to share the ad with others!

Weekend Getaway

Sometimes you just need a getaway.

As life continues to lay on the stress and work gets more insane, my boytoy and I decided we needed to take a weekend off and just relax. So we went to a local lake to enjoy some fun in the sun.

Between basking in the sun, swimming in some gorgeous water, and doing some fishing we were able to truly enjoy nature. Sure it was insanely hot and I came home looking like a lobster, but it was well worth it! I had an amazing time.

I am a total lake junkie during the summer. If I could spend every weekend in the sun I would. Unfortunately I still will not get tan, but that is OK. My little sister often tells me I need to "embrace the whiteness." haha. I guess I got the "you're always going to be seriously white with no tan in sight" genes. Oh well, porcelain is beautiful right?

Hope you all took advantage of the summer sun this weekend!

Get your hands on the new Diet Ice!

I decided to start a Wordless Wednesday! I have seen a lot of bloggers do this, and thought I'd give it a try!

It May Break My Back ...

But at least it looks good.

When I was growing up I would look at my grandma and think, man she has a huge purse! Then when she would ask me to bring it to her from across the room a shear streak of panic would run across my mind. I was going to have to pick up this massive bag and drag it all the way across the room. At first I would try to hoist on my shoulder, that didn't work, then I would just drag it across the floor. She'd get a little irritated that I didn't carry it, but we all know grandma's don't stay irritated long.

Once I'd make it across the living room floor (which seemed like it was miles long while dragging this purse) I'd ask her, "Grandma, what's in this thing?" She'd simply reply, "everything." And to this day, I believe it is true. Grandma always had everything you needed, no matter if it was a piece of candy to get you through church, crayons for a road trip, tissue for that runny nose, or even a bandaid if you fell and scraped your knee. It's crazy how much stuff she could get in one purse. It seriously was like a clown car, just when you thought it was empty there was something else.

So what is the point of all this? Well for my birthday I got the biggest handbag I have ever carried in my life and I LOVE it. I know my grandma would be proud if she saw how big this handbag is. Granted it isn't huge, but it is big. Now I find myself putting stuff in my purse that I never carried when my purse was smaller. I'm not sure if it is because I have more room, or if my mentality shifted to "grandma had it all mode."

I mean looking through my purse I have: two pairs of glasses (sun and regular), a wallet, coin purse, calendar, small make-up bag, lotion, Scentsy catalogs, car insurance, wisp toothbrushes, keys, 2 packs of gum, bandaids, sanitizer, kleenex, and probably other things that I never get to at the bottom of my purse. While I may not be as prepared as grandma, I think I am off to a good start.

I've also began to notice that my purse has gotten a lot heavier. Sometimes I wonder what kind of damage it is doing to my already messed up back. On top of all that, my handbag is also my boyfriends storage container. I can't tell you how many times he has asked me to hold his wallet, hold the camera, or carry something else random.

Does having a bigger purse make you carry more?

Life is a roller coaster

More and more I have noticed that life is a roller coaster. Sometimes it goes up, sometimes it goes down, sometimes it throws you through a loop, and other times it just feels like it goes in reverse. I've been kind of missing the last two weeks, yes I know it is terrible since I just started this blog but sometimes life just gets in the way.

July 4th was my birthday so I went out of town and headed to the lake. It was a total blast. I honestly think there isn't much better that relaxing on a boat on a beautiful lake with a beer in my hand. It was a much needed get-a-way.

Unfortunatly, my last day at the lake I realized I was getting sick. Yay! The drive home was not fun, and the following week wasn't either. My allergies got way out of control and were apparently starting a war with my immune system. So I spent the week trying to drag myself out of bed and surviving work. That is about all I did the whole time, and blogging was a top priority unfortunately haha.

Now it is Monday, and even though I still am not 100% back to normal, I am glad to be back in the blogging world! Cheers to a good and healthy week!
