Oh Audrey...

Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?
Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
Paul Varjak: Sure.
Holly Golightly: Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that'd make me feel like Tiffany's, then - then I'd buy some furniture and give the cat a name!

A quote from one of my favorite movies...

Yesterday I think I had the Mean Purples, I was a mix of the blues and the reds. I was sad but frustrated with a little bit of hunger all thrown into one. Thank goodness my mood finally changed in the late afternoon. (Maybe it was because I got a huge box of MaryKay makeup to play with on my luch break :)) I am not sure what it was but I'm just glad I am out of my weird funk.

Yesterday ended up being a great day. The weather was incredible and work is amazing as usual. I got to teach Body Attack and go for a short run with Tricia. I didnt feel like cooking after that so I ran to food lion and grabbed a Digornio pizza and "Country Strong". Nick came over to grab a bite to eat before taking off to poker night.

*warning* cheesy moment - I am a sucker for rom coms and everything romantic and can I just say that before Nick left to go to poker night he just grabbed me and gave me the best hug I have had in a long time, like the one where you kind of get tingly legs and you decide that you are just never letting go... ahhh it was great

Anyways... back to my night. So Nick takes off around 9 and then the fun began. I am clean freak so I cant rest until the house is in order. So I got to work just tidying up and vaccuming and dusting. At this point I am (according to Brad Paisly) a hot southern mess since we haven't put our air conditioners back in yet. So I just hopped in the shower and then it was movie time.

I prepared myself for cheesy with a slab of ridiculous coutry twang but I loved that movie. I cried 3 times and decided that I was going to buy the album haha.

So it turned out to be a great day and I still have pizza to look forward to for lunch :)

So yesterday I decided to take off a little early from work and go down to Roanoke to get my second laser hair removal. As I am driving I see a huge accident on the other side of the road, and I need to go back that way to get home/go to the mall before I head home.

I get to my laser hair appointment and I get the girl in training. (back story my first round of laser did not hurt I seriously barely felt a thing) So she gets started and Holy Hannah it felt like how I picture a tatoo would feel. After about 5 minutes I start smelling burnt hair, which is "normal and a good thing", yeah ok honey you are not the one getting your arm pit melted off.

So after a half an hour my appointment is done and I ask the doctor is different way to get to the mall and the highway. So she tells me the directions. I get into my old beat up car that has no air conditioning on an 85 degree day and head down the road to find myself in bumper to bumper traffic.

But I have my mind set on using my coupon for a free perfume from Victorias Secret. So after an HOUR!!!!!! drive that would have only taken about 10 minutes, I get to Victorias Secret and come to find out my coupon for a free "perfume" is the size of a tester. Yes I drove an hour to get a tester size amount of perfume. I honestly could have killed someone.

I am fuming the whole way home because I have wasted a ton of my evening and I will get home around 8. But I decided that I was going to go for a run when I got home otherwise poor nick would have come over to a nightmare of a girlfriend.

So I just plan on running for like 20 minutes I figure I can get about 2 miles in. NOPEEEEEEE I look down at my ipod to see that I ran 3 miles in 24 minutes. Yes people that is an 8 minute mile. It honestly made my day, I have been telling everyone who will listen.

I got back home at 8:30 Nick and I took forever to decide what to eat, and I was just not in the mood so I threw some whole wheat pasta and some turkey meatballs on the stove and bam dinner was made by 9pm... I know it is not healthy to be eating that late but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.

Thankful Thursday

My Loot

So as expressed in my last post, one of my favorite things was this past weekend... the J Crew factory sale. Nick and I arrived at 12 to see a line wrapped around the building for this puppy. Mind you it is slightly drizzling and its like 50 degrees but there was a smile on my face. We get inside and are handed our garbage bag and the price list and dun dun duuunnnn we are joined with 248 other people in picking through uhundreds of boxes of J Crew clothes. Holy Hannah people it was insane I could barely reach my hands in to boxes it was so crowded.

So after about an hour and a half of "shopping" I found Nick and we plop down in the middle of the factory surrounded my a ton of girls and we all start sorting through our stash. So hear is your mental picture. (outside in line everyone and their mom are in leggings and tanks with little northfaces over the top, hello people it is 50 degrees, well I judged too soon cause they were able to try on every single kind of clothing item! I did see a little too much of some peoples mothers but hey I will never see them again so i dont judge them for doing it, I almost wish I had thought of it)

So we are surrounded by stripping people and clothes. Nick was soooooo hoooo sweet and watched me try on shirt after shirt and help divide up my bag into things I "needed" and "maybes" and "less than maybes" hahaha but let me back up. So while I am selfishly looking for only clothes for me my man candy finds me a purse I picked out in the store ($400) and an adorable double brested rain coat anddddddddddddd wait for it..... A PINK PEA COAT!!!!!!!!!!!! oh my gosh I was floored... I got the purse for 30, the rain coat for 25 and the pea coat for 50! Gosh I had been searching for rain coats online forever, wheneever nick and I go out and its raining I am always that girl who is waiting at the door for a car to come drive up and pick her up, and then I have to put my jacket over my hair cause heaven knows I chose the one day out of the week it rains to straighten my hair. but its all changed now I have the cutest rain coat on the planet that includes a hood and it just so happened that it was raining when we got out of the sale. GLORIOUS!
I also bought 9 shirts, a belt, and bathing suit bottoms.

We get out of there around 5:30 and we head over to meet our friends Mckay and kalee for dinner. We went to Hibachi.... can we say delish. I want to kiss the person who makes the white sauce. After dinner we headed back over to their place to watch youtube videos and just hang out since we only see them about once a month.

Yesterday Nick and I went to church, came home and ate some grub, went over to his house for him to change and then headed out to Lexington to walk around and soak up the gorgeous weather. We both wore some of our new clothes and looked pretty dang adorable. We just laid on the grass and talked about what we didnt feel like cooking for dinner. We headed home and i fell asleep for an hour and half to wake up at like 8pm! We made plans to go over Nicks cousins house at 945 so we booked it over to my house so we could eat a little something and then went over to the Hiatts to play Wii.

Great weekend with the Man!

I will post pictures when I can. I dont have internet at my house so I am limited on my blogging resources.
