My new favorite movie! (aka and why my life sucks)

Ok, so I have been trying to watch Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist for awhile, but it just wasn't happening, but I finally got to watch it last night with B.  He slept through most of it, but I watched the whole thing and loved it!  It made me wish I was back in high school when I was young and in love and ready to take on the world!  It was super cute!  Lately, actually for awhile now, I've been depressed about the current state of my life.  Not so much my family or friends, but my job.  This is just not where I'd ever thought my life would be at this point.  Quite frankly, I did not go $40,000 in debt for a college degree so I can do data entry and drag an drop folders, which is, essentially what I do.  It's ridiculous.  The problem is, I'm afraid to take the plunge and quit.  I have a car payment and a mortgage (not to mention those friggin school loans) and we're trying to be adults and think about the future and how can I handle all that with no job?  But, is it really better to stay in a job I hate??  Ugh.

Also, I saw a picture of Drew Barrymore (I think) and she has a tattoo on her wrist that says, "Stay true to yourself" and I thought I should totally get that tattooed on my wrist (one of the few places I'd get a tattoo) to remind me on the regular that I need to do what makes me happy.  Because, believe it or not, when you spend a lot of time doing something you hate, it's really easy to forget that there are other options in life.

I've lost my stride

Before going to Jamaica (way back in the beginning of June) I was really good about going to the gym.  Not anymore.  I've realized I don't do well with the gym unless I have a direct goal in mind (wedding, vacation) and apparently "so I won't be a fat mom" doesn't work when I'm not even pregnant.  I would like to lose weight and gain muscle, but I also really like my couch.  It's a problem.  The goal is to start getting up and doing am cardio, so far this week it hasn't happened, but tomorrow's another day.  So, in the meantime, I'm going to pretend I'm buying myself all new workout clothes!

I'd really love...

to be organized
to have all the rooms in my house done exactly the way I want them
to have the space for a large garden that I remember to water on the regular
to have a closet full of clothes I love and that I look amazing in
to perfect my face on a daily basis
to sleep in fancy lingerie, though I do love the flannel pjs and v-necks, my husband doesn't seem to
to go to the gym on the regular
to have six pack abs and SJP-like biceps
to be able to walk in heels
to eat less mashed and fried potatoes and more whole grains
to be doing something challenging with my life
to not be embarrassed to tell people what I do for a living
to buy Uggs just because I want to
to find the perfect skincare products to get me perfect skin
to spend at least some of my Saturdays with my husband
to own a beach house or maybe a regular house with an in-ground pool and a lounge a chair
to tan perfectly and not burn randomly
to stop biting my nails FOREVER and not just a few weeks
to figure out what to do with myself

I used to think Uggs were a total waste of money.  I mean really, over $100 for a pair of boots, when I could get ones for a lot less that looked the same?  That is, until my husband bought me a pair for Christmas last year.  I'm totally sold now.  If I could wear them everyday, I would!  Since getting my tall grey Uggs, I've recently purchased the Gypsy flip flops.  Got them on clearance at DSW and with a coupon for $26!
Next, I'd like to buy the Ugg mini.  I know they are no longer made, but you can still find them online.

And then maybe after that I'll go for these!

I love my Uggs!

My Saturday morning and afternoon...

I was supposed to drop B off at work this morning (which would have required me to leave my house not too much later than when the sun rises) but my wonderful husband decided to let me sleep and just drove himself to work.  I got up around 9:30 and texted my cousin to see if she wanted to meet me at the farmer's market, turns out she was just pulling into the parking lot, so I met her.  Then she invited me over for breakfast.  It was nice hanging out.  I did, at one point, start to choke on my toast, it was not good.  My coughing lasted quite a long time.  But, I survived.

What I bought: yellow tomatoes, green beans, cucumber, yellow and green zucchini, red potatoes, bread, and kirby cucumbers to make pickles!

After breakfast, I came home and watched some tv and read a new blog and then made myself a yummy sandwich!
Turkey, cheese, mayo, cucumber, tomatoes, orange pepper and pickles.  Of course as I sat down on the couch the pickles slipped off along with the roll top.  But I rescued the roll and replaced the pickles.      

Pasta salad on the side!

Okay, I gotta go to Faith No More with the husband!
