My friend talking about ex’s.
Sorry for the selfie but I just got my eye brows done (waxed and tinted) and I’m stoked. I’m still upping my work out game to feel better about myself but this helps as well.
Last night I helped my friend with a photo booth for a father daughter dance. His normal assistant hurt her back so I stepped in. The girls ages ranged from six to thirteen, it was all very cute.
Plus I got to listen to Frozen’s Let It Go like three times (two remixes) so my Saturday night was pretty much awesome.
I told the boy how I started running again and wanted to tone up.
He clearly thinks it’s a trap.
Like everyone at some point in time, I was not happy with myself- in any aspect really. I dropped out of college. I had a shit retail job and I was going out. A lot. You would think with all the drinking and hungover bar breakfasts I was having this was my fat time but nope, this is not my fat point.
Once my ex and I broke up I started running. The I lost my job at the evil law firm and I started to eat like a starving college student again. Starving college dropout is a thing right?
Maybe it was the frustration or maybe I was getting to old for this shit (at this time I was 25?26?) but I was over my pity party. I was lucky enough to have my friends who were all doing something really rad with themselves and still wanted to be my friend. Jessica, Becca, Molly, Sarah, Katie and Tegan- I’m looking at you.
By pure luck (and a good friend) I got a sweet job. Then I got a dog. Became happy with myself. Met a boy and became fat. I was so used to living alone I forgot what full meals are and portion control. I got used to eating what he eats and the same amount. It doesn’t help that we like to go out to awesome restaurants all of the time and I have a sweet sandwich hookup (I know-I’m such a whiney bitch).
So here I am: Older, Happy but Fat. I’m not meant to be a skinny person, but I would like to tone up the pearness of my pear body. So I’ll go on my lunch runs again but continue to enjoy my friday night happiness pizza.
Today I went for a lunch run and happen to be surrounded by love locks.
Church of craft and beer was a success this weekend. This bear magnet is probably the favorite thing I made.
Lovely Monday: Is it Spring yet?
If you can’t tell yet, I’m ready for the weather to change. I cannot wait to wear adorable shoes, dresses and also light weight jackets! I’ve been eyeing Hasbeens now for awhile, there is something about wearing a clog style shoe that makes me want to quote Clueless and these guys being gold really pulls at my heart strings.
Nicest Things.com posted this adorable planter with sayings like “only the good die young”. Although I have more of a brown thumb when it comes to plants, I really want to try this year with our new planter box for tomatoes and maybe some flowers in the front. Fingers crossed!
I know I mentioned it before but I’m stoked to wear my dresses again. Sure they may be paired up with rain boots but this simple anthro dress would look so cute with Hunters.
