One of my favorite posts to date was one of my “early” ones if you will when I guest posted over at Helene’s home. No lie if you are looking for someone to sponsor it is her. I don’t really check google analytics anymore but when I posted on her site I had a minimum of 15 people at every given moment linking to my page. My post was on secret girl behaviors and then when Kenzie wrote one the other day that involved covering her pretty boots in walmart plastic bags so they wouldn’t get ruined I smiled knowing that us blogging girls are crazy. We get each other. I feel like I can let all my inner monologue out to which y’all will reply “totally did that yesterday“……it makes me feel sane again.
So I know it is like very old fashioned that Mark and I aren’t living together yet (I have my opinions about living together while dating but we won’t go there today). The truth is we are both professionals that had our own lives before we met and it just hasn’t happened yet. Until now. Jan 1st to be exact. My “assignment” now every night when I come home from work has been to pack so I will be ready when that moving truck comes at the end of the month. Mark has been at home getting all his after work stuff done so he’s not here to distract me. My parents graciously dropped off boxes and bubble wrap (popping it never gets old).
Sooooooo what have I done every single night instead of packed you may ask? Well let me tell you.
Binge Watched Gilmore Girls. I’m almost done with Season 2.
Eat things out of my freezer that are still half frozen because I don’t have the time or patience to wait for them to thaw. Hence the Costco Carrot Cake Cupcakes reference from the other day. I mean I stuck it in the microwave and half the frosting melted off. It tasted like heaven.
Followed by eating these. Yeah buddy. They were amazing.
Realized in horror there were 6 servings in that bag…..
Did some Facebook stalking. Oh I didn’t know he had two kids with two different girls…..interesting….
Stalked y’alls blogs.
Made a holiday wish list. Then laughed about how it wasn’t going to happen. Mixers and silverware are in your future my dear not this fabulous rose gold cuff. I want full details Lindsay!
Tried to take a gel manicure off by myself. That was a bad idea. Realized that not having two hands for 10 minutes was torture. Realized I was addicted to social media. Tried to palliate myself with gilmore girls. The grandmother is the best part in my opinion.
Finished grading papers and answering angry student emails who like to use ALL CAPS when talking to their professor apparently.
Take pictures and post to instagram. Loved getting my holiday cards from B and Mree!
FaceTime my sister and her kids.
Drank wine and pin.
Then pin some more.
Spend hours finding gifs for my Friday Favorites post. Like this little gem. Honestly what the…..is going on here.
Start watching bpm videos on youtube and design an entire spin class….even though I don’t teach spin anymore. Well while I’m at it might as well write down my barre class for tomorrow.
You want to know what I didn’t do.
You guessed it.
Well I did pack up my wine glasses and moved my little over the toilet standing drawer set that houses 1/3 of my products. So I will call that a success.
Sorry mom I love you and thank you for helping me this upcoming weekend after I totally swindled asked you to come to my dress fitting/alterations and then to help me pack afterwards. I promise I’ll buy some food so I don’t feed you salad with croutons on it again and call it dinner!
So there you have it all the ways I stay “busy” when I am supposed to be doing something else. It is times like this I am so glad Mark doesn’t read my blog ;-) What do you do when you are supposed to be doing something else? Tell me tell me! Isn’t packing the worst???!?! Make sure you link up tomorrow and tell me all your favorites from the week!!! xoxoxo
