I'll just figure everything is cool....

Wednesday! Last night I attended a middle school band/orchestra concert. It's been a long time since I went to one. I sort of forgot how newly-instrumented kids sound. Actually, the orchestra was not bad. A couple of the violin or viola players (who knows the difference between the two) were really quite good. None of the screeching that is typical in 6th grade solos. I was impressed!

Following that, dinner at Applebees. $7.99 hamburgers and a bonus $2 off coupon for next time because of an MDA donation. And a shamrock hanging up with my name on it. I'm almost famous.

Today's Lula is leggings, a Lindsay and an obnoxious electric yellow Lynnae. It is VERY bright yellow. Hopefully between the Lindsay and the necklace I was able to tone down the yellow a bit. the picture does not capture the florescentness of the top.

It's the springtime of my life.....

So yesterday when I woke up, I shut my alarm clock completely off and forgot to turn it back on. That means I woke up a bit late this morning. Even with a couple extra minutes of sleep I'm still tired. Yesterday I left work when it started to snow and I worked from home for the rest of the day. I got a surprising amount of work done. I was rather impressed with myself for being able to stay on task. Maybe I can adult!!

I still have not been able to unlock my dad's cell phone. I finally got his gmail account unlocked, but the phone won't take that email. Even though the Jitterbug people told me that was the email address. This phone is supposed to be easy for seniors, but I'm so beyond frustrated with it. I can't even imagine someone without any tech knowledge trying to work it.

Today's Lula is pretty much my uniform - leggings, Lynnae and Lindsay.

Last nights Lulajammies was leggings and an Irma. I swear they matched when I put them on.

And you can tell everybody this is your song.....

Another Monday.....I had a good weekend. I binged on netflix and finished the latest season of Grace and Frankie and the first season of Everything Sucks. Both are very good. Everything Sucks is set in the 90's and the music is fantastic. So many good songs! The show itself is maybe a little too  young for me, but I can be pretty immature sometimes so maybe it's just right.

That's really all I accomplished this weekend unless lunch at La Casita can be considered an accomplishment??? Oh, and I kicked (accidentally, of course) the bedpost and broke a toenail. It was tragic because now I need to postpone any planned pedi until there is something to put polish on.

It's supposed to snow later this morning. If that happens, I think I'll leave early and work from home and get some of these commission statements processed.

Today's Lula is leggings, a Perfect and a Shirley. Purple and Gold. Because SKOL!

This weekends Lula was leggings and an Irma and leggings and a Lynnae.

Now I'm convinced that I'm goin' under.....

It's Friday!!!! I am so very happy about that! It's been a long week.

I just ordered some orthopedic shoes. I think I may be getting old. Hopefully they will help. I've started using a TENS unit on my foot and calf, in addition to the ice and night splint and stretching exercises. Eventually something has to work, even if it means orthopedic shoes.

Tomorrow morning I am going to go and help my dad figure out yet another "smart" phone. This should be an interesting experience. I'm going to have to google the phone first and figure it out so i can help him get the screen unlocked. That's where he's stuck.

Yesterday I had cake for breakfast and I'm a bit disappointed in myself for not bringing a piece to work for today. I've failed.

Today's Lula is a Lynnae and a Lindsay.

When I drive that slow, you know it's hard to steer.....

I had a great night last night, my cake turned out super yummy and pretty with the candy hearts. And dinner was amazing. I love steak and shrimp.

Ok, if I need to venture into the left lane to pass you, you are driving way too slow. I am quite content going the speed limit. I have never gotten a speeding ticket, and I don't ever intend to. So if I need to pass you, then you most definitely need to speed up!

I wanted to do laundry last night, but the new neighbor was doing hers. Apparently she didn't get the memo that I have first dibs on the machine and she needs to check with me first to make sure I don't need it. She'll catch on.

Today's Lula is a Lindsay and a Lynnae. My favoritest combo:

I never knew that it could happen this way....

It's Valentines Day. Or as I like to call it, another Wednesday. I do have a special dinner planned for tonight, but I also have a hot date with my podiatrist. I hope this time he can do somethign to fix me besides taping my foot together. This is a very expensive out-of-pocket adventure, so I hope I can end up pain free. Or with less pain.

Today's Lula is VD themed: leggings, a Lynnae and a Lindsay:

Don't be afraid to lose what was never meant to be.....

So, the podiatrist guy taping my foot is going to cost me $65. My biggest life regret is going to be not taking a handful of the peppermints off the desk. I don't even like peppermints, but I just paid $65 for 32 cents worth of tape at retail price. I should have gotten free peppermint candies! And that doesn't include the x-rays and office visit. I hate high deductible health care. But I just eased my pain by buying some more Lipsense colors.

Las nights dinner at Sam's was fantastic. He made waffles and bacon and sausage and hash yummy! I love breakfast for dinner. and I got to see people I haven't seen in forever.

Today's Lula is an early Valentines Day celebration: rose/heart leggings, an Irma and a Shirley:

 Last nights LulaJammies was because I was feeling a bit patriotic.

Last night to Sam's I wore a Lynnae and a Sarah. Terrible picture because I'm lazy.

Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.....

Monday! I only managed to get one load of laundry done this weekend. But I did buy a new sofa and love seat, so there's that. And I took lots of naps. I very much love naps. Tonight is dinner at Casa de Sam. I haven't seen CCW since December and I haven't seen Mandy and Jolane in like 27 years, so it will be nice to see them. And Sam's making breakfast for dinner, so yum!

I am totally in love with all of my new LipSense colors. I really like the products and am glad I tried them. But they are spendy! Although I think it's worth it.

I had to order a new comforter from Amazon last night. And a new bottle of OPI Lincoln Park After Midnight. I opened up my leggings/nail polish cabinet and the bottle fell out and hit the dresser and broke and nail polish flew all over the dresser and the bed. I love the color, but not streaked on my blankets. I was very sad, mostly about the polish. I may or may not have ordered the polish before the comforter. Priorities. Also, acetone will remove the polish from the dresser and it will also remove the stain. If you use it on your comforter, it will smear the polish and leave big purple splotches. Also, if you have a paper cut on your hand, the nail polisher remover will sting.

Today's Lula is a Lynnae and leggings. I put the Lynnae on backwards. On purpose. And I like it that way. No cleavage and more work appropriate.

Yesterday to go shopping, I wore a Julia knotted up into a tunic-type top. Totally loved it this way! I'm not entirely sure that my polka dots and flowers matched, but I was comfortable. And I like polka dots and flowers.

And Friday nights LulaJammies - Leggings and an Irma.

She's living the life just like a movie star.....

It's Friday! I have a weekend of laundry ahead of me. Yay! My hair looks greasy because it is greasy. It's Friday and I didn't feel like showering. Also, eyebrows suck. I'd take a picture of mine today, but I don't want to become a meme.

This is how I must sleep at night, with this horrible splint thing on. It's uncomfortable and awful, but I think it's working.

Today's Lula is a Perfect and a Sarah with jeans. Because it's Friday! Also, one of my pictures is sideways and I don't feel like fixing it.

Thursday, February 08, 2018

Got that kind of style everybody try to rip off.....

Tomorrow is Friday! I was sleeping soundly by 8:45 last night so I don't know why I'm so tired. A small part of me wants to care that my hair looks like I haven't brushed it in 2 weeks. But the larger, louder part of me just doesn't care. I know it's clean, I washed it last night. So that's all that matters. Combing it is optional.

Also, I spent way too long internally debating today about whether or not my leggings have black or navy in them. That's probably why I'm so tired, an early morning fight in my brain about which boots will match better. I went with black. I think I won.

Anyhow, a Perfect, leggings and a Lindsay. With black boots. Because the leggings are black. I think.

Wednesday, February 07, 2018

We're fire and ice, a dream won't come true....

Wednesday!! And I see a stop at target in my future. Since it's pretty much the best place ever. I'm also seeing BLT's for dinner. I should be making a grocery list. But it's so much more fun to shop there without a list and without a plan so I can leave with eleventy-million dollars worth of items that I need.

I'm so ready to start packing for Cali! I need a vacation. I really miss the Princess, and I really need to get away for a few days. Plus, California.....

Today's Lula is a Perfect, leggings, and my new Noir Sarah. I am so very glad that I decided to try a medium Sarah. I didn't expect it to fit, but it's perfect. The large is just too long for me. Unfortunately I will be limited to only the super stretchy mediums, but that is probably good for my bank account.

Last nights LulaJammies was leggings and an Irma.

Burning bridges shore to shore....

Tuesday....I may or may not have ordered a couple of additional LipSense lip colors. There were a couple more I wanted to try and there was a sale and......I needed something fun to try to get out of this winter slump I'm in. And lipstick is definitely fun for me!

I need to invent a mobile gas delivery business that will deliver gas for your car and put it in so you don't have to stop at the gas station when it's 80 below zero. I really need to fill my tank. But it's so cold.

Today's Lula is a Classic, a Lindsay and leggings. And my new navy suede boots. I love love love these boots!

Before I know it, Saturday's gone....

Another weekend was okay. I got a lot done. I finished my dad's taxes and got my oil changed. I did a load of laundry and finished cleaning up the mess I made with my closet. After all that, I settled in to watch the Super Bowl. I do have to admit that it was a pretty good game. It's hard when you really want both teams to lose. But I'm okay with the ending. The half time show was not the best I've seen, except for the Prince tribute. I'm very glad that was included, and I must say it made me a tiny bit teary. Prince was an amazing talent.

I got my  new orthotics and they are not terrible. It's weird to have them in my shoes, but they are not super uncomfortable. I think I'll be able to wear them. I also found a sling that I can sleep in. It's less bulky than the first one I got and I know it will help.

I booked my next trip to Cali for March. I'm very excited to both get away and to see the Princess. This time her and B are picking me up from the airport. It was hard to coordinate schedules, but I think, I got worked out. I'll be landing in CA at 11 PM. Their time.

Ok, today's Lula is leggings, an Irma and a Lindsay.

Saturday's oil change, printer shopping, and Red Lobster lunch was leggings and a Lynnae. p.s. I had the best lobster I've ever had.

My Sunday "I'm not leaving the house for anything" Lula was leggings and a Patrick.

Friday, February 02, 2018

So don't wake me if I'm dreamin'......

Friday!! Tomorrow morning I am doing taxes and then an oil change. And then pajamas!! I also am still working on getting my closet organized and I have like 4000 bags of stuff to gift to ZarahZou, donate, or discard. So I need to get those off the bedroom floor.

I found a color semi-similar to Katherine Heigl's in Knocked Up. The color is Bella from LipSense. I like it, but it was pretty spendy. It's supposed to last all day. I guess we will see!

Today's Lula is a polka dot Lynnae. With Jeans. Because it's Friday!

Thursday, February 01, 2018

Do you think time would pass me by?

So the podiatrist yesterday.....I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and bone spurs on the inside and outside of my heels. That is why walking is so painful. I have to continue the ice bottle regime, add in some other stretches and order a specific pair of orthotics. Also, my feet are now taped together in a way that the doctor guy says mimics what the orthotics will do. It just looks plain strange to me. But what do I know?  I need to leave them taped for 3-5 days and then go back in 2 weeks. I ordered the orthotic inserts last night via Amazon Prime, which is pretty much the best invention ever. I've definitely saved my annual fee in shipping costs.

Today's Lula is a new Classic I got in a mystery sale paired with a black Cassie and a Lindsay.
Last nights Lula-Jammies were a new pair of roller skate leggings I got for practically free from a consultant who was going out of business. I paired it with a solid Randy.

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

It's so insane, 'cause when it's goin' good it's goin' great....

Wednesday....I have a half day of PTO today so I can go to the DMV and renew the tabs on both of my cars. Yay! I love spending eleventy-million dollars on something like that! Speaking of cars, of course it snowed because I just got a car wash. And also, a small part of me is concerned because I parked my car totally crooked today. But a larger part just doesn't care. I'm leaving at 11 anyway. And all the parking lines were totally snow-covered and blurred.

Today's Lula is an Irma and Lindsay with jeans. Because I wanted to wear shoes instead of boots because of my podiatrist appointment this afternoon. I hope he can fix me.

Last nights Lula was my favorite pattern mixing - stripes and florals.

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Now throw your hands up in the air.....

Tuesday.....I spent several hours last night trying to reorganize my Lula. I've reached the conclusion that it is a lost cause. I just simply do not have the space for my leggings. I stopped at Target and got several plastic see-through containers, so now I have containers of leggings with no place to store them. My closet is full of my shoes. I have a mess. I am a mess. Tonight I will try to come up with a new plan. But it keeps coming back to the fact that I may just need another closet.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with a podiatrist. You know the pain is bad when I am willing to use my money to pay a doctor instead of buying Lula. I'm pretty sure it's plantar fasciitis since I've dealt with it before. But this time the ice and exercises are not helping the pain. Also, high deductible health plans suck!

Today's Lula is a pair of paisley leggings, a Lynnae and a Lindsay. I'm very colorful!

Monday, January 29, 2018

I'm not the kind-a girl who gives up just like that, oh no......

Monday. I didn't get all I hoped to accomplish this weekend done. I got all my Lula tops and dresses hung up, but I have no place left to put my leggings. For now, they are in stacks all over the place. I need to figure something out. Also, man I have a lot of Lularoe. Like a ridiculous amount. I should be very well dressed for a long time!

I finished Heartland on Netflix. I think there should be another season coming soon. Until then, I need to find something new to watch.

I scored at Target. They had 20% off boots on the cartwheel, and I found 2 pair that were $12.98. So, an additional 20% off $13 is like practically free!!

Today's Lula is a Lynnae, Lindsay and leggings:

This weekends Lula was leggings and Irma's. Super comfy!!

Friday, January 26, 2018

Well look at me, I'm coming back again....

FRIDAY!!  In between a major Lula shopping spree to spend my Lulacash, I've been staring aimlessly at two Words with Friends boards. I am not seeing a single play that will be beneficial to my score. I need to walk away and come back. I can play a letter or 2, but I'd like to score more than 7 points.

After work, Target is calling my name. I need to visit my happy place. And pick up some $125 milk. Nothing on this weekend's agenda except somewhere around 1400 loads of laundry. Being an adult can be so boring!

Today the Princess turns 26. 26! Where did the time go? I miss her so very much, but California is where she should be. She seems happy there. I'm planning a visit for March, I just need to find the time to check out prices. And hotels. I can't spend a week in her little RV. I'm thinking she can stay at the hotel, too. She wants to do a day trip to Santa Cruz. Since I've never been there, that sounds fun.

Today's Lula is a new Lynnae with a navy Linsday over it.

Last nights LulaJammies was a pair of leggings and a solid Randy. Not even sure if I matched, but it was comfortable!

Thursday, January 25, 2018

You know I like my girls a little bit older....

I had always been told that once I hit 40, it was all downhill for my body. I'd wake up with creaks and cricks and aches and pains. Well, the people that told me that were right on the money. I may look 29-ish, but my body feels 80. My back hurts, my knees crack, my shoulder....everything. I can't deny I'm getting older. At least I just had a pedicure so my toes are pretty.

I did make it to the post office yesterday, so the Princess will get her birthday boxes only a day late. I could have spent an extra $219 to send them overnight, but I think she can wait a couple days. I'm glad to have something I can cross off my to-do list. But it's "cross off one thing, add 7 more". Eventually I will make progress. This weekend I absolutely NEED to take an inventory of my LulaRoe. Before I buy even one more thing I need to sort through what I have. I can't find a couple things I was looking for. And there's always the chance I only dreamed I bought them.

Today's Lula is a Julia and a Lindsay. I bought this Lindsay with the intention of pairing it with a couple Cassie's I have. But when I was hanging it in my closet I saw how perfectly it matched this Julia.

Last night's LulaJammies were difficult to get a good picture of. They don't look like a match. But they do go together. Leggings and a Classic. One of the polka dot colors matches the leggings exactly.

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Now that I'm here, wishing I was still young.....

It's Wednesday, my 5th favorite day of the week! The roads are pretty much cleared off, so my commute was SO much easier. I decided I need to take a half day of PTO today so I can get to the post office to mail the Princess her birthday gifts. I may or may not have told her that I mailed them Monday. In my defense, I had really good intentions. But I can't even blame the snow. It's just procrastilaziness. I will most definitely probably get it taken care of today. I also want to make one more attempt at finding my car title. It has to be somewhere. Unfortunately that somewhere may be unfindable. Which apparently isn't a word.

I finished season 8 of Heartland.One more season left on netflix. I don't want it to end. But I'm also ready to move on to something with a little more action and adventure.

Today's Lula is a Carly that I picked up in a mystery sale. I totally scored! I got this Carly and a super cute black and white Classic for the price of the Classic. And both pieces are EXCEPTIONAL!!! I paired the Carly with a pair of leggings and a Lindsay. This Carly seems a bit shorter than some of my other ones, and I super like that!

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

Like a game show contestant with a parting gift.....

So it snowed a little bit yesterday. And by a little bit, I mean over a foot. I really don't mind the snow, but I hate the commute. A drive that should take 30 minutes takes an hour and a half. So much time wasted in my car. I could be using this time to play Bubble Pop Fever. Although I'm not exactly sure how many levels I have left. I'm at almost 1500.

One of the local Lula retailers had a fantastic football day sale and I was able to capitalize on it and I picked up some fantastic items. I can't wait to get them. A brown sweater Lindsay, a purple polka dot Lynnae, several other fun things.

Speaking of which, today's Lula is an Irma, leggings and a Lindsay. Perfect outfit for a snowy day in the office.

Monday, January 22, 2018

Fairy tales don't always have a happy ending, do they?

So, it's Monday. Last night's game didn't go as I hoped. It sort of reminds me of a Lucy Swann quote from The Stand: "He's gone… but I'll have his baby. Maybe… it's not all I wanted, or all I dreamed of having… but it'll have to be enough."  We had a very good season. We just couldn't finish it out. Our defense didn't bother to show up, our offense couldn't put together anything.....I'm disappointed, but a large part of me knew it was a long shot. 

So, today's Lula is kind of like a mullet, I'm mourning on top, but celebrating on the bottom. Solid black Carly and a charcoal gray Lindsay with a pair of super fun leggings. 

Pedicure Lula was a Lynnae, a Lindsay and leggings:
