Holy shit. I’m in the teens now!
This week has been a drastic improvement over last week. Work didn’t make my brain want to explode, I finally feel like I’m financially ready for the trip, I did a ton of shopping (always a plus for me), and I finally found a dress for my sister’s wedding!
Honestly, that was the thing that was stressing me out the most. I had been looking everywhere for a dress that would flatter me, and didn’t cost a billion dollars. Best thing about this dress? It’s BCBG, regularly $300. I got it on sale for $166. And my shoes were regularly priced at $99, and I got them on sale for $79. And as a bonus, the shoes and the dress will definitely be packed in my backpack as my birthday/party/going out dress. I’d say that I hit the jackpot.
I also hit up H&M for some sweaters, a new black blazer, scarves and socks. I still need to get one more pair of jeans, but I haven’t been able to find the right kind (Levi Bold Curve). My wardrobe currently consists of black, more black, and grey. Neutral colors for the win!
At Sephora, I bought my new all natural deodorant by Lavanilla. Seriously, it’s amazing. I’ve been using regular deodorant/antiperspirant all of my life, and I was noticing that there’s been a slight discoloration underneath my arms. That, and I have no idea what the hell putting all that aluminum on my skin has been doing to my body. So, I decided to switch to the natural side…and I have not been disappointed! I also bought new tinted moisturizer (really the only thing I use, maybe a little bronzer) by Laura Mercier and I finally broke down and bought the Naked eye shadow palette from Urban Decay. I’ve had my eye on it for months now, but it was ALWAYS sold out. It’s the perfect mix of neutral eye shadows, great for day and night. It’s small and thin, and I won’t have to worry about taking all of my little MAC eye shadows separately.
Jack had his visit to the vet and is perfectly healthy and clear to fly to Miami to stay with Johnny’s mom while we’re away. I’m going to miss him terribly. He always sleeps in the bed with me, cuddled right in the crook of my legs. It’ll be so weird not having him around, hearing his little tags clink against his collar, his little yelps while he’s dreaming. I don’t think it’s completely sunk in yet that he’s going to be gone. My little baby will have a great home though.
AND! I finally finished my first TEFL essays and received a 96! Whew. It’s tough taking an online course because you’re not entirely sure what the tutor is looking for. I just sort of had to wing it and hope for the best, but it turned out great. Now, on to the next module.
Slowly, but surely, I’m ticking things off the list. It’s all coming together. I just need a backpack (going today), some boots, another pair of pants, and a pair of chucks (or something similar). Oh..and get rid of my bed. But I don’t think I will have any problems with that.
So..this has been sort of a rambling post. But damnit! I am excited. And nervous. And MORE excited.
