Confessions & Tidbits

  • I accidentally packed my deodorant in a box. As well as my spare that I keep in my gym bag. It's 100+ degrees in Texas today. Yep.
  • I am currently at a loss for words over how expensive rugs are. Just as I'm sure you are at a loss for words at my first bullet point! ;)  I just can't wrap my head around why a 8'x10' section of carpet should cost $400. So annoying. If anyone has suggestions for places to look for modern/affordable rugs, I am all ears.
  • I finally jumped on the Hunger Games bandwagon and couldn't put it down! I downloaded Catching Fire but plan on saving it and Mockingjay for my loooong flights in August. 
  • All my friends have had a blast making fun of me over the last two weeks because I confessed that I thought the rice cereal you feed babies was Rice Krispies. Literally, they have not let me live it down. In my defense, I have never spent any time whatsoever on the infant aisle of the grocery store! So it's a logical assumption, no?
  • I'm thinking about taking a pair of croakies with me on my trip. When I think of croakies, the first thing that comes to mind are the Phi Delts from my college days. Yes, they're fratastic and a bit boyish*, but I need all the help I can get- and if that means tethering various articles of importance to my body, then so be it. Just give me a huge camera and a fanny pack and I'll be all set in all my Obnoxious American Glory!  {*Or maybe I just haven't paid much attention- do girls wear croakies ever??}
  • After months of quiet observation, I'm going to give Latisse a shot. Only I'm trying a generic version called Careprost that is only $11/bottle! I have very squatty short eyelashes compounded by deep set eyes (as a makeup artist once told me). Let me just tell you how entirely unfair this is since my brother has eyelashes so long that he literally used to complain that they would hit the lenses of sunglasses and get tangled up. Grrr.... Anyways, I'll do some before and afters and let y'all know how it goes.
Alrighty, back to work...

If you aren't scared to meet random people - try Craigslist for rugs - you would be amazed at what you can find!

Ooh, I can't wait to hear about generic Latisse! I have the exact same eyelashes that you do - as opposed to my sister's lush lashes, of course! - but I've never made a move toward Latisse. Maybe the cheap stuff will turn the tide!

Good luck on that deoderant search ;-)

HA! Croakies ALWAYS make me think of fraternity guys. The mental picture currently in my head is hysterical! (But they are fairly genius...)

And I totally ditto you on rugs...SO.DANG.$$. It's unreal.
