-I'm thinking about only writing here a few times a week versus everyday. Well, granted--I know I don't always "write" everyday (ie: posting pics), but I at least post something 5 days a week, and often times, 6 or more. I'm not posting because I *have* to--I just want to, and feel this looming need to do it. But I don't really want it to be like that.
-I unfollow people on Instagram when they have posted approximately 394830948 pictures in one day of themselves, in the mirror, and every single one looks identical. Look, I like a good mirror picture. I take them sometimes, too. But don't go and overkill it.
-On that same note, while I appreciate some OOTD ("Outfit of the day") pictures or blog posts....I mean, every single day? That's a bit much. I'm glad you like your outfit that much to show us every day. I mean, that's great. Fabulous, really. Also, why does everyone (and sometimes I catch myself doing it) stand pigeon-toed in the mirror while taking self-portraits? Did you notice that, too? Now you'll notice. Trust me. Also, on the outfit blog-posts, some peeps kind of look like they're about to tip over with those fancy-schmancy poses. You'll now notice this too. Promise.
-Emeline has now officially entered the picky-eater stage. I remember so naively writing one of her monthly posts back-when saying what a great eater she was....how she wasn't picky at all....and how I hope it stayed that way. WRONG. My hoping didn't help, apparently. She pretty much hates everything that I'd like to feed her.
At least she looks cute when she's refusing her lunch. Yea?
|Yepppp. Those are tears in her eyes.|
-My good friend, Jess wrote a post today about Toddlerhood and it's pretty fabulous. Go check it out.
-Whenever I have a ton of things to do, I sit and do nothing instead. My closet is packed to the brim with clean clothes, all folded, but ALL OVER THE FLOOR. They need to be put away, in a major way. My bedroom is a mess, I can't remember the last time I cleaned my kitchen floor, and I let the dishwasher sit unemptied yesterday for an entire day (I never do that). I am putting all bets on the fact that my Erin Condren planner is on the way to me this week and that maybe, just maybe it'll bring a little sanity to my life.
-I didn't buy trip insurance for our vacation to the Florida Keys. Oops. In light of all this hurricane talk, not to mention the new ones out there at sea swirling around, you'd THINK I would have done that. The problem is this, every time I look into it? It confuses me. A lot. There, I admit it. It almost looks like they cover NOTHING in the end and the fact of jumping through hoops to only recoup a little bit of money sounds incredibly annoying. I am banking on prayers & the fact that God knows we needs this sooooo badly that hurricanes will stay away. Call it naive. Call it hope. Call it what you will. That's what we get for planning a trip during hurricane season.
-I'm planning my next tattoo, and it's going to be a large one. I don't particularly care about anyone's views on tattoo's, I love them. Like, love-love-love them. I need more of them in my life.
-I haven't put my camera down since it came. I'm amazed by it, and I'm trying to recoup the time I lost while waiting for it to get here. I may, however, develop carpel-tunnel because it's SO heavy. But I know I'll get used to that.
-I have developed a major love for dyeing my own hair. I went even darker again last night. I used to do it all the time, then I stopped for a while, and now I'm back on that kick since I'm sporting The Dark Hair Look. I absolutely love my hair dark and it makes me feel 1,000x prettier than light hair ever did. I'm secretly jealous of all of you naturally-exotic, dark & gorgeous types.
Go ahead. Confess. It feels great ;)
