Random non-weekend, pre-trip thoughts

By: Jessica B.

I love to travel but I get so wound up before I leave that I work myself into a total tizzy, much like I’m doing right now. URGH I hate when I do that!

Anyhow, to help clear my cluttered mind of random stuff I’m thinking about, I put together a lovely bulleted list of things on my mind, some more random than others.

  • How long will it take once I arrive in Mexico to be on the beach with drink in hand? My guess? One hour (at the most)
  • Is it possible to wear leggings as pants all the time and not look silly? I’m willing to try
  • I’m totally obsessed with Boo the dog on Facebook. Seriously, I would steal that dog. I want one just like him (kidding?) The video of his “typical day” makes me scream with cuteness
  • This week’s episode of Glee was so amazing. I’m letting myself download three (or four) songs…or maybe just all of them :)
  • Daylight savings time is bringing me down. I love getting another hour of sleep, but dark at 5 p.m.? Really?
  • Arielle asked me this weekend if everyone in the Midwest is obsessed with football. After seeing the crowds at the bar Sunday, I think she’s right
  • Why is picking paint colors so difficult? I’m so indecisive with what colors to select for my living room/bedroom. I’m thinking off white and light gray but I cannot commit. Blerg
  • I’m pretty much also stalking photos from the Breaking Dawn set in Brazil. I’ve got Twilight fever yet again!
  • I need to get back in for a mani/pedi stat. I did my own last night and it was…well embarrassing
  • I’m dying to try Temptu’s Under Eye Concealer. I have serious under eye circles

Also, THANK YOU everyone for the feedback on the dresses to wear to the wedding. Holy cow, I was truly blown away by the response it got!

The dresses I packed tonight are the Banana Republic purple/black dress, floral dress and pink NY & Co. one. The final pick will be a gametime decision, but I feel good about all of them thanks to you guys! I even laid out jewelry, purses and shoes. I will be glammed up in any of those dresses!

What’s on your mind lately?

    Mexico and drinks? Oh wow I need a vacation badly, I think I just drooled :p

  2. Allison says:

    you better not be wearing leggings on the beach!

  3. I thought Boo was a stuffed toy when I looked first. Ha!

  4. steph anne says:

    I’m so used to it getting dark early here anyways since we don’t do DST in Arizona. Oooh, do share the stalking photos of Breaking Dawn!!

  5. E.P. says:

    I’m hating the fact that it gets dark at 5 now, as well. I feel like it puts a cramp on my entire day because when I get home from work, I just want to go to sleep.

    I hope you are having an AMAZING time in Mexico!

  6. Stephany says:

    The biggest thing I hate about DST is how early it gets dark! That is, until a few weeks in when it becomes the norm again. And then I have to go through it all again when DST ends and it stays light for so much later! ;)

  7. Julianne says:

    I am in the same boat with paint colors for my bathroom. I change my mind everyday. Have fun on your trip!

  8. mandy says:

    Have a fantastic time in Mexico!! I say why wait even an hour before you have a drink in hand? You’re on vacation, start as soon as the plane lands.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Leggings are perfectly okay all the time, especially with an adorable shirt dress.

    Have a great trip!! I’m glad you feel confident about all the dresses–you really can’t go wrong.

  10. Heidi Renée says:

    I haven’t watched Glee yet. And this week is MSU’s bye week so no football for me, boo.

  11. katelin says:

    seriously have sooooo much fun!! woo mexico!

  12. Kate says:

    Please tell Arielle with absolute certainty that not everyone in the Midwest is obsessed with football. My husband and I pretty much hate it! AND it jacks up the TV schedule. Boo.

  13. Bing says:

    Leggings are amazing, enough said. =)

    I’ve never seen Boo until just now. He’s so cute, and I want one!

    Where are these Breaking Dawn photos? I feel like doing some stalking too!

    Mexico is awesome. I hope you have an amazing trip!

  14. have a fun trip : )
    glee was fabulous last night! and i got a mani/pedi yesterday and it was glorious!

  15. Aah I’m behind on Glee!!!

    If Temptu’s concealer doesn’t work for you… try Benefit’s Erase Paste.

  16. Lil' Woman says:

    My mind is on this work week being over…I’m ready for the weekend already.

  17. nic says:

    Boo the Dog! Just the sort of thing I’d love and obsess over! Thank you!

    Also, Arielle: if it’s true, I am the exception to the rule. I couldn’t care less.

    And as for picking pain colors, my theory is to ask yourself what kind of mood you’d like to have in a room. Something light and cheerful? Something calming? Something energizing? And test the color before you buy the whole can. I painted my living room walls a milk chocolately brown to contrast my pale blue-grey couch. I wish I’d have tested it on my walls first because I’d definitely have gone much lighter. Hope that helps!

    Finally, have a GREAT trip! :)
