Dani the girl is singing songs to me beneath the marquee.....

It's Tuesday! I went to sleep last night at 7:45 and slept through the night. It was wonderful! I started watching a show called Aquarius about Charles Manson. But I could not even stay awake to finish the first episode. There's only 2 seasons, so I think I will start it over and watch it all. The whole Manson Family thing fascinates me.

Last night I made fried Spam for dinner. I haven't had that in like a million years. It was pretty okay, especially since I love salt so much.

Today's Lula is a solid cream Perfect and leggings with a sweater from Target. I chose this outfit today mostly because I wanted to wear the shoes, a super comfortable pair of Naturalizer's that don't really match very many outfits.

Burning bridges shore to shore......

What a great weekend! I have a new favorite Viking. I love love love Anthony Barr!! He is my new hero!!! Thank you, Mr. Barr! You have given Vikings a fighting chance this season. I felt a teensy bit bad celebrating Rodgers getting hurt, but then I remembered that he gets paid no matter what. And when I broke my arm, I got Ibuprofen. He is going to get all the best pain meds. He'll have no pain AND a paycheck. And he's still making more money than people who work 50 times as hard. So I think I'm okay with my being happy he's out.

The rest of my weekend was pretty good. I got 95% of the work I brought home done. Today I'm going to focus on sorting through some of the paperwork that got left behind. I'd like to downsize the amount of paper sitting on my desk.

CH said she can go to CA, so I want to book our trip this week. I'm super excited to see the Princess. I hope she's doing okay out there. I miss her!

Today's Lula is a purple (SKOL!) Perfect with leggings.

Friday I went home and put on a Randy and leggings. Randy's are not my most favorite. I need to size up 2 sizes to make them work with leggings. But I love this black, white and pink striped one with a pair of leggings.

And then Saturday I thought I'd stay with the striped Randy theme to go out shopping. Black and grayish-white striped Randy, polka dot leggings and the super-versatile solid black Lindsay with black boots. Perfect Saturday outfit!

We just want to dance here, someone stole the stage....

Friday!! Only a few hours left of this work week!! Although there is still the work to be done on Saturday (and possibly Sunday), but working on the couch in my pajamas is so much more relaxing than being in the office.

This should be a pretty good weekend, although that rests a lot on how the game Sunday goes. Am I a horrible person for wanting Aaron Rodgers to suffer a career-ending sack by one of our guys? He gets paid either way. He makes more than my annual salary each time he throws a pass. He'd be fine. Just not playing football anymore.

Todays Lula is a new Irma I got from a closeout sale. I love the colors so much!!


Thursday, October 12, 2017

And a whole lot of space to breathe in....

It's the day before Friday! I have so much work to get done today so I can spend some time tomorrow prepping the things I'm going to take home and do over the weekend. Sunday is the Vikings/Packers game and I wanted to go to Valley Fair on Saturday, so free time is going to be hard to come by. But the work must be done!

I talked to The Princesses' BFF and she may be able to go to Cali with me in December. That would be a super nice surprise for AlyOhh. Her mom and her bff!! I'm only going to be able to get away for a few days, but hopefully this spring I can go and spend more time there. I'm just way too busy right now to take a lot of time off work.

Super special shout-out to my co-worker JC who suggested the Waze app. It is a super amazing gps app. It's sent me new ways to work that I would have never thought would be faster. And it warns me about stalled vehicles and police guys. I love it so so so much!! Thank you, JC.

Todays Lula is a solid green Perfect Tee and leggings with a pair of boots.

Last nights Lula-jammies were a turquoise way over-sized turquoise Irma and a pair of snakeskin print leggings. Super comfy outfit to wear to bed.

And finally, I've been back to hitting the treadmill. And what could make the treadmill more tolerable than a pair of LulaRoe Americana leggings?

Because tomorrow might be good for something.....

Wednesday! Last night the dentist went pretty fast, I think I was in and out in 25 minutes. I left with a numb mouth and $90 lighter. I really hate giving the dentist money, but I really like having teeth so I guess it's a trade-off I have to take.

I also FINALLY stopped and got my hair trimmed. I've been putting it off for about 2 weeks. And I had enough Fantastic Sams stamps to get it done free. I love free. Although I was obligated to tip $10 because the stylist said I had nice hair. Note- if you tell me I have nice hair, you get a bigger tip. I think I'm going to grow out the bangs. At least for now. I can always trim them later.

I'm hopefully planning a trip to CA for a long weekend in November or December. I miss the Princess and could use a couple days away. The only thing stopping me is money and my workload. But I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Todays Lula is an AMAZING Irma and leggings. It doesn't look super amazing in the pictures, but trust me! It's phenomenal. It looks solid gray, but up super close it's space dyed with light flecks of turquoise and pink. The photo doesn't capture the awesomeness. And these leggings!! I love this outfit so much!


Tuesday, October 10, 2017

And just like that all my walls come down.....

Tuesday....I'm super tired. But it was totally worth staying up for to get the W. We would never have won if it weren't for our defense. I think my next jersey is Harrison Smith!

Dentist appointment tonight. One of my fillings cracked, so I need to get it fixed. One of my favorite things to do is write a check to the dentist for $192 million dollars.

I found a Lula seller on facebook who was going out of business and selling everything for 60% off. I felt semi-obligated to buy a couple things. So I'm going to try my first Azure skirt and Nicole dress. I guess even if I don't like them, they were practically free. But I've loved every piece I've tried so far, so I'm hopeful.

Todays Lula is a pair of black leggings with blue polka dots, a blue Perfect and I threw a solid black Lindsay over top so make the outfit look a little less like pajamas. Even if it does look like pj's, I'm super comfortable!!


Monday, October 09, 2017

And yeah I know, you thought you had bigger, better things....

Another Monday....my weekend was good. Saturday night I went to a drive in. I didn't even know that any still existed. It was a triple feature. For $8.50!! But the first movie was the Lego Ninjago movie. It was kind of cute, but I'd never set out to watch it purposely. Second was Kingsman: The Golden Circle. It wasn't terrible. Finally the movie we sought out to see, It. It was very good. The only real issue is that 3 movies last over 6 hours. So I didn't get to bed until after 3:30. That's a pretty late night for me. But I still got up at 9 and worked for 4 hours.

Friday I left work a bit early and went home and put on my lulajamas and worked on the couch for a few hours. I got so much done! For real!!

Fridays Lula was a pair of mauve polka dot leggings and a shirt I think I got at Macy's.

Todays Lula is the perfect colored Carly for Fall with a mustard colored Lindsay. I had to buy the Carly because the seller was only selling a pair of black leggings with the Carly. And obviously I needed the solid black leggings. I got the Lindsay from eBay for about 1/2 price of buying it new. I've been looking for this color and this is the first one I saw. I knotted the Lindsay and paired the outfit with black suede boots.

I was also able to snag another pair of solid black leggings that I'm going to give to C-C-W. I've purchased 4 pairs in the last 2 months, so they are no longer a rarity. LulaRoe must have made some changes to try and keep people happy. Especially with all the negative changes on the consultant side. Or so I've heard. I'm not a consultant, just a shopper/addict.


Friday, October 06, 2017

And so we're told this is the golden age....

It's Friday, which seems like a good day for a little U2. Of course every day is a good day for U2.  I'm so glad the week is nearly over. Even if I will be working some this weekend. At least it will be on my couch. I have so many commissions to process. Hopefully once we get the new system up and running (Oct 30) commissions will be easier. I hope it all works like it's supposed to!

Nothing on the agenda for the weekend except work. And then some more work. I finished season 7 of The Walking Dead, and I'm so disappointed there's not more yet.

Last nights Lula was a fabulous pair of leggings I got from Cherie. I just love her, she is the absolutel sweetest person ever! I paired them with a long sleeve tee from Old Navy. I love this combo!

Today is Friday, so jeans and a Perfect. It's red and navy and just about every other color. It's kind of fun. And perfect with jeans!


Thursday, October 05, 2017

If you don't feel complete, if I don't take you all of the way, go....

I think today is Thursday, but this whole week has been just a crazy busy blur. Every time I think I may be getting close to caught up, something else happens. Eventually I will get this all figured out and get it all balanced. Until then.....

At least tomorrow is Friday! And that means a weekend is coming up. A weekend of laundry, cleaning and maybe even some extra rest.

Last nights Lula was a pair of navy and gold leggings that I got for free with a purchase and my Jungle Book T-shirt from when I stage managed the show. I would never have chosen this pair, but they are fun and super comfy for pajamas. And they were free.

Todays Lula is a forest green Cassie with a tank top I got from Maurices and a sweater I got from CJ Banks with a pair of tall khaki boots. I'm so happy it's boot season!!


Wednesday, October 04, 2017

And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know.......

It's only Wednesday.....So far it has been the longest week ever. I'm so emotionally drained. I've been going to bed early and sleeping fine, but I'm still so tired. Last night I had another dream that I went back to high school to try to improve my grades. This is like the 10th time I've dreamed that. But I graduated with honors, so not sure my grades needed much improvement. So strange!

I really, really need to get my hair trimmed. The split ends are terrible. I could also use a pedicure. And I broke a nail this morning making coffee. Because I'm ultra talented like that.

Todays Lula is a turquoise Irma banded in the back and a pair of leggings. These are one of the very first pairs of leggings I ever bought.


Tuesday, October 03, 2017

It just seems so useless to have to work so hard....

Yesterday was the most emotionally exhaustive day I've had in a long time. The horrible tragedy in Las Vegas and then Tom Petty....My heart hurts and my brain is tired.

This came up on my facebook as a memory from 2 years ago. Little, tiny baby Layla. She's over 2 years old now. Time is flying.

Todays Lula is a bright gold Irma and black floral leggings:

Nothin' is really wrong, feelin' like I don't belong

Monday......My weekend was okay. I managed to get the grocery shopping done. Then I watched a terrible football game. So terrible that I do not wish to discuss it.

I have a 262 day snapchat streak going with The Princess. It's just one little way we can remain connected despite the distance.

 I started season 7 of The Walking Dead last week. I hope there never really is a Zombie Apocalypse because there are just way too many stupid people in the world. I fear that people will underestimate my abilities and not look to me as a leader. But I have a plan. And we will prevail. So, if I have asked you to be on my team, please trust that I know what I'm doing and I have a plan in place. I know where our home base will be and I've got supplies all figured out.

Okay, enough about zombies. I have a ton of work to get done.

Todays Lula is a rose/polka dot Perfect with a pair of black pants.


Friday, September 29, 2017

And they seem to be more into laid back songs...

It's Friday!!! I tried to stay up last night and watch the Packers/Bears game, but I was so tired. And seeing Green Bay score so much makes my stomach hurt.

Lots of work to get done today - it's month end.

Todays Lula - a black Irma with white and green x's. Super slinky feeling and perfect with jeans.


Thursday, September 28, 2017

There's oceans in between us, But that's not very far....

It's Thursday! The last day before month end, so I have a billion things to get done. I've spent about 72 hours the last 2 days in training, so I need to get all caught up. I'm looking forward to a weekend with NO laptop! Although there are definitely things I should get done. I want to (need to) learn more about accounting. Especially accounting in our new system.

Today's Lula is a red and black rose Irma that I paired with a pair of black ankle pants. I love the roses!

Last night's Lula was a pair of unicorn (literally) leggings and a light green Irma. The unicorns are adorable, I mean unicorns wearing sunglasses are so much fun!


Wednesday, September 27, 2017

I'mma take it slow just as fast as I can....

Wednesday....another day of training on the new system. We go live with it on October 30th. Originally our "go live" date was Oct 2nd, but we had to change it because of some problems with our test sample. But now we should be all set. I have a lot to learn with all the new changes to accounting.

I think it's probably time to switch to my Vikings handbag. That is on the agenda for this weekend! SKOL!

Todays Lula is a solid black Cassie, a black Lindsay and an AMAZING leggings-material Classic Tee. Anything leggings material is awesome, and this is not only super cute, it's also super soft and comfy! I also pulled out the boots. I think it's time to acknowledge that it's getting a bit cooler. And that means boots!!!


Tuesday, September 26, 2017

Just when we're sheltered under paper, the rockets come at us sideways

Tuesday! Today I have training on our new system. This means even more work to be done at home to get all the commissions entered before the end of the month. I could really use a nap. And it's only 7 am. It's going to be a long day!

Last night I watched a bit of a Lula show with Halloween leggings. And I did not buy a single pair! I really don't need them and probably won't even wear them. I overdid it with the Americana Collection and have a bajillion pairs. No more special collections!!

Todays Lula is a gold Perfect and my latest "Leggings of the Month". Every month I get a mystery pair for a lower price, and so far they have all been pretty good ones. I like these a lot. The colors are amazing!

Last night's Lula was a pair of Lula-Logo leggings with the t-shirt I got from the 5k GloRun in August. The leggings are cute, but I wouldn't wear them to work.


Monday, September 25, 2017

I'd be safe and warm, If I was in L.A

Monday....I had a pretty good weekend. Valley Fair on Saturday and Sunday I got up at 5:30 to get some work done before the Vikings game. I got a ton of commissions done, and I even watched the entire Manhunt:Unabomber series. It was really, really good.

Then the Vikings game. I didn't expect we would win, but we did!! It was a great game to watch! Following the game I took a much needed nap.

Todays Lula is a beige Cassie and a navy/beige polka dot Perfect:

Saturday nights Lula was a pair of leggings and a VERY oversized Irma. I got it on sale and it matches so much. But it is at least 5 sizes too big. It makes perfect pajamas.

Friday after work I went home and put on a pair of solid coral Lula Leggings with one of my favorite Irma's. It's purple and pink and coral and is super fun!


Thursday, September 21, 2017

Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty.....

Tomorrow is Friday! It's been such a long week, I've been so busy with work and the bake sale. I feel like I work and work but never get anything done. I'll be in the middle of something and then my phone will ring and I'll get sidetracked, and.....I can't wait until the time when I no longer have to look up accounting procedures.

I just ate a scotcheroo bar for breakfast. Because why not?

I'm looking forward to a boring weekend. Laundry. That's it.

Today's Lula: A navy and cream Classic paired with navy capri pants and a beige light sweater I got from the Wish app for $6. I so love the Wish app, I've gotten a ton of fabulous deals!


Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Yeah, I already know that there ain't no stopping.....

Wednesday! The bake sale was a huge success, we made our goal and I got to eat the most amazing Rice Krispie bar. Of course, I was the one who made that particular bar. LOL I also pretty much swept the raffles. I won all but one of the items I put tickets into. I was having a pretty lucky day! And now I have a bottle of wine for sometime soon.

Today's Lula- a solid mauve colored Cassie and floral Perfect. Cassies are my ultimate favorite LulaRoe piece, and Perfect's are my favorite top. I'm wearing a skirt, but still I'm super comfortable.

Last night to bed I wore a pair of ice cream sundae leggings pulled up to capri length and a top from Target. This is a super fun Lula-print. Who doesn't want to wear ice cream??


Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Think I'll dust 'em off, put 'em back up on the shelf...

Tuesday! And also Bake Sale Day! I spent all night making Rice Krispie Bars and Scotcheroo bars (which turned out phenomenal). Other than that, I've got nothing today. Work to do and brownies to eat!

Todays Lula- A moss green Lindsay, a burnt orange Classic and super-coordinating leggings! This outfit matches superbly. Only problem with it is that I had to size up to wear the Classic with leggings,. and it's too big yet still a bit too short for spandex. But I have the most awesomest, perfectest shoes!!!
