These are some of my favorite posts to read by others and to write myself. I feel like I am generally a silly person who has some ridiculous things happen to me on a daily basis. I also genuinely like getting people to laugh…..so if a quick laugh of my expense can brighten your day…..let’s do it.
I confess that this past week my drivers side door, it will lock but not unlock with my remote key. So I’ve had to resort to either crawling in from my passenger side door or getting in…..reaching across and unlocking it and then walking around and getting in that way. If you know me, you know that I’m an extremely paranoid person and I’m hyper conscious in parking lot situations. I mean someone could be hiding on the other side of the car. I know nobody could get underneath it because it’s so low to the ground but if I had an SUV you know I’d be ducking to look before I got close.
So the other day I’m loaded up for work. I have my work bag, workout bag, lunch traveller, my water bottle and cup of coffee. I hate drinking coffee out of lids and like to live on the dangerous side with open containers of hot liquids. Well my genius self decided to place my coffee in the cup holder (y’all know how much I detest my tiny useless cupholder). Then instead of opening the door and walking around, I decided to
gracefully shimmy up over the center console into the drivers seat. I was trying to save time.
You know where this is going right?
Well in that shimming attempt I kicked my coffee cup (with no lid) and searing hot coffee spilled all down my leg and into my new pair of expensive Tieks (the horror!) Seriously what the hell was I thinking??!?!!? So now I’ve burned my leg, ruined my shoes and I’m now late for work. I blasted back into the house where Mark immediately “what did you forget?!” To which I had a demonic reply of a burned leg and ruined ballet flats. Bless him because he was actually supportive and helped me clean off my shoe and stuff it with newspaper. I then blasted back out of the house with the windows down trying to air out my car. So the moral of the story. Drink your coffee with a lid, don’t try to shimmy across your front seats uncaffeinated and the cupholders in my car once again prove to be the worst invention ever.
The ending part of this story? When I took it in to get fixed and I went to pick it up. The very sweet guy in the office walked me out and let me know that inside of my remote is a key that pops out that can be used to manually unlock the drivers side door. I always thought it was for the glovebox only. Yes that is a true statement. Do you see how used to technology we are? I mean my car prior to this one had an actual key. I can’t believe I didn’t put two and two together. I snapped this whole rundown (on Instagram stories) the other day and did get quite a few funny stories from others and their car key woes….so it made me feel a little bit better. Public service announcement, even though you have a remote key, you still have an actual key that will unlock the door. Just in case you ever need to know that…..
How do I move on from that one right? I confess I sent all my Nordstrom purchases up to my sisters house in New Jersey because hello no tax. That is why you haven’t seen me wearing or styling them yet. My parents were up there visiting (and drove!) so I made sure to send all my big purchases up to her. You know I’m all about saving money and hello 7% off what I ordered is a big deal. I have to make a trip down to them and pick it up this weekend!
I confess I want to so badly call out FL bloggers who are posting instagram pictures with their latest Nordstrom purchases. I’m all….it’s 95 degrees in FL how the heck are you wearing knee high suede boots with a blanket scarf??!?!?! I’m sweating just looking at you. Heck I was sweating in the dressing room even trying things on! You can’t make suede boots happen with shorts right now in FL, that is not a transition piece of clothing. You just want to push your affiliate links. Let’s be honest now.
I confess this was one of the pictures I sent in for my newest campaign with FIJI Water. It’s all about being fit and how their newly designed bottle fits into your life (and my cupholder in my car). Besides being out of focus and fuzzy…..I wonder why they didn’t use this one. I am pretty impressed that my 32 year old self can still bend this way. Thank you Pure Barre and my previous 18 years of figure skating.
I confess that Mark does all the cooking in our household because he has very strong opinions about food, so I just let him cook. When you work in healthcare and are used to eating standing up in between patients, you tend not to be very picky when it comes to food. I really don’t care as long as I have something to eat when I get back from barre. When he left to go out of town the other day, he premade meals for me to eat. I swear I know how to cook but I’m not like a cat with no claws due to him always meal planning. When he came back everything was pretty much there and he was like what did you eat?!!? Ummmmm cereal, wine, chips and salsa I recall?
I confess I am so excited for school to start for the kids here in Fl. Why you ask? So they go back to school and my clinics start getting lighter again. This Summer has been so crazy at work because all the kiddos try to get their appointments in while they are out of school, mix that with tons of my Docs being on vacation equals very very busy days. I’m like, I love yah kids but time for you to go back to school so we can have some sanity again. Plus, I really love all the first day of school pictures that blow up my Facebook over the next few weeks.
I confess this Summer has been such a whirlwind that I cannot believe we are almost halfway into August. Can we just hit the pause button? I need another mini vacation before the hustle of Fall starts. Is everyone back from their Summer vacations yet? If not tell me where your next trip is planned! I hope everyone is having a great week and tell me a confession. Or if you knew that your remote for your car has a key inside of it…..for your actual drivers side door ;-)
