Happy Birthday to Me

If I was one of the cool kids I would have one of those snazzy '28 before 29' lists all set up to post but I'm not. I guess I have some stuff to do in my head but I won't share, because whenever I share I'm not compelled to actually do said things. The time to look out is when I keep quiet. Then you know I'm serious and don't know what to expect. Or something like that.

Anyways, yeah. I'm twenty-eight. I'm borderline depressed about the whole thing. I mean it's so old. Sort of. I'm thisclose to 30 and am nowhere near where I think I should be. Sigh! It's all part of the plan, more or less, right?

Oh, and I'll throw in my birth chart too for shits & giggles.

If you understand this, I love you and lets be total bffs.

remember spring swaps snow for leaves

I was going to do this outfit post but I received the best sunglasses as a birthday present and they completely match so now I have to re-shoot.

So here's a wee little sneak peak until then.
And who knows when then is.

Music Monday

I don't know why it has taken me so long to use last fm. I've been listening to the Mumford & Sons station a lot (natch) and this song popped up last week and I absolutely loved it. I had to download all his stuff and am really enjoying it as of late.

feel good, inc. (2)

Apparently, I've used this title before, but I'm feeling uncreative and I liked it thus the (2).

Last week I got a really horrible case of tonsillitis. I'm on antibiotics now so I'm starting to feel better.
I'm almost feeling on top of the world right now which is a really great feeling considering how I usually feel. I don't know if its the amoxicillin or the new moon solar eclipse in Gemini the other day but I'm loving it. I hope it stays for a long while. I need it.

We had a housewarming slash birthday party this past weekend. It was waaaaaay funner than I expected it to be. I am so blessed to have such wonderful caring people in my life. It makes my heart smile. I will definitely post the pictures later this week.

I was really hoping to start taking a yoga class this week but looking at my to-do list there is no way that will be possible. Bummer bears. Next week most definitely.

I'm trying to get Lo into VPK for the summer so he can hopefully transition to school easier. OMG its so crazy that he goes to school this fall. I can't believe it. I'm going to be so lost without him. I mean, not really, it will be really good for him to be in school but... wow. I'll miss him. We've been inseparable for years now. How fast time flies.

Some quick little outfit shots since its been a while. I took them too early so most of them got too much light.

Sweater: Ross Tank: Bealls Skirt: Thrifted Sandals: Target

There has to be another way to do these to make them smoother. Hmm.

I was watching My Best Friend's Wedding the other day while cleaning and I kept thinking I really really really need a George. That night my friend, Cyndi, was telling me how she just got a gay bff at work. I'm so jealous. I have to steal him. Or she at least needs to share.

I need to get a nice notebook this week because I have a million thoughts running around in my head and it is impossible for me to stay focused and accomplish anything. So frustrating! A 5 subject one seems imperative. I always have extensive shopping lists and to do lists. Why is this? If I can't get it all done now, how will I ever do anything if I had a normal job? HOW DO PEOPLE DO THIS???

Anyways, hope you guys have a good week!

Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe!

I know it's all over the internet today...
She would have been 85.

"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world."

"A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left." 

"If I play a stupid girl and ask a stupid question, I've got to follow it through, what am I supposed to do, look intelligent?" 

"It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone." 

"Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about."

"Ever notice how 'What the hell' is always the right answer?"

"We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets."

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
