Errand Day

Do you ever just let the little errands pile up until it takes an entire day to get them all done??? Ortho again, laundry, book summer flights, book hair appt, get car serviced, pay rent, pay bills, get new remotes at cox, go to the bank, make dinner, work out. Hopefully I'll nab myself a sub job tomorrow....

The Recession Makes Me Shop More.

Its true. There are such good deals, that I can't help myself. Bought these this week:

Anna Sui Dress: Mine is blue, got it for $30 at the designer shop at Nordie Rack. Retail = $357.

6126 Gold Leggings: Lindsay Lohan's line. Got at T's Accessories for $20, Retail = $100. I hope they don't give me cameltoe like this poor mannequin.

Sir Alistair Rai Scarf: Wanted one for the past two years. Even though they're a little passe, I'm still going to rock it because I want to! Got at T's Accessories for $30, Retail = $115.

Hue Red Tights: Nordie Rack. 97 cents. I win.

Nothing Grosser Than Soggy Lettuce

The food that grosses me out more than anything is lettuce that is even remotely soggy or hot. When there's too much dressing, when the lettuce gets hot after being put on a hot sandwich/burger, cooked spinach/kale/lettuce-like leaves, leftover salad, etc. Any sort of wet edible leaf. I'm gagging thinking about it right now. This is because I just got a sandwich at Subway. My lettuce, despite the sandwich having only a thin line of light mayo and mustard, was soggy. BLEH.

What food completely grosses you out?

Ortho and oral surgeon appointments today. My mouth is so high maintenance.

Prom Shopping!

So my anti-social little brother decided at the last minute that he was going to go to his senior prom because a friend asked him and he was feeling generous. Which means I have to help him find a tux, shoes, and a corsage before Saturday. Yay, who ever thought I'd be prom shopping again! I am allergic to the world (pollen, cats, nuts, dairy, melon, avocado, etc.) and something in my turkey burger/sweet potato hash combo last night at True Food Kitchen made me supremely itchy in the throatal region. So I took a Benedryl and promptly passed out in the car. Benedryl affects me like a roofie. But not before I shared the olive oil cake with my dad :).

1 hr Sub Job = Perfect.

So I got called at 1:00pm to sub for an hour at a middle school from 2:30 to 3:30, which is a beautiful, beautiful thing. Only problem is that I didn't have time to go home and change, so I subbed in leggings and tee. I'm so professional. Going to dinner with my dad tonight at True Food.

Yesterday I had an amazing lunch at Pita Jungle with some friends and then went to the gym. I'm experimenting these next two weeks with just doing cardio 5x/wk, because while I love how toned Crossfit is making me, I feel like my arms are even more large and manly than normal.

Who Needs Money? Not Me.

So of course over the last week and yesterday, I was bombarded with substitute teaching jobs and today, when I'm finally ready to take them, the phone turned silent. Instead, my mother gave me a lonnggggg list of chores to do for her today - research and buy a new stainless steel fridge to be delivered, pick up prescriptions at drugstore, go to the vet and get dog food, get moisturizer and shaving cream, make dinner, etc. Then I'm going to the gym. Because I'm extremely exciting.

One of my FAVORITE things to do with my mom is hit up Neiman Marcus with her (and her store card, duh)! She got a $50 gift card in the mail and its a double rewards point weekend, so we're going today and I'm stoked! Then sushi tonight with my little brother, who was forced to go to calculus camp this weekend (at the end of your senior year, if you are in AP math, they make you spend a weekend away doing calc. doesn't that sound awful? i took AP statistics senior year instead just to avoid this).

I went to do some sprints at a nearby park this morning because my gym at home is closed Sundays (SO annoying), and I am NOT used to the AZ heat anymore. It was only 88 out, and I felt like I was suffocating. I came back in less than half an hour, I'm such a wuss....

I'm debating keeping the Rachel Pally skirt I'm wearing today. I really love it and its fitted, fluttery layers, but I think it makes my hips look massive. I love it because the style name is my middle name, but maybe only stick figures should really be wearing it.....

We've Got More Bounce in California....

Home in Scottsdale! I love being home, but after hitting up the Culinary Festival, I also really hate Scottsdale. It sounds like a nice day of gourmet food right? No. Its Affliction-shirt, tan, roided-out Scottsdale losers drinking in the beer garden for amazingly expensive prices ($10 to get in, $10 or something for the beer garden, $2/3 for each TINY little cup of beer on a string around your neck). And some booths with good food that are impossible to get to through the crowds in the 90 degree weather. And girls wearing T-Bags maxi dresses everywhere (like its 2007 or something).

Afterwards, my mom took me for manis and pedis and I was rejuvenated, so don't worry about me.

I'm just upset that I spent $30 at the picnic and $25 on bad pizza for dinner. That could have been much more wisely spent on clothing.

My hands are ripped up like my gymnast days. Crossfit moved into a new facility, and the chin-up bar isn't taped like the old one. Therefore, my delicate hands get thrashed! I got 4 rips last night, two of them on the same chin-up. Now my palms are covered in band-aids. Its pretty hot.

The blog has been dated a day behind lately because I have been opening a new post the night before. Many apologies if you're confused on my life. But I figure no one gives a shiz. :)

Another longggg day of studying, finals week in grad school is even more fun than undergrad. I could have predicted this though, its my own fault really..... I've been trying to keep myself out of sweats on these study days, as there are real clothes that are just as comfy. My own little personal goal.
