Not only my overused “new word” but the best way to describe today.  Yuck.  I am in a general bad mood and the Phillies lost last night.  Boo.  So, that means back to squaring off with the husband about TV choices for the evening, no more cheesesteaks (Husband SWORE his loyalty to eating a cheesesteak during each post-season game would guarantee the win) and waiting until next season.  Will miss you boys…

Anyway, I’m in a terrible mood today!  What do you do when you are feeling down?  Please comment and let me know!  I can’t wait until I get to the gym this afternoon and can run some of this off. 

OK, enough of that.  So I told the husband that I hit a new low last night…I bought some clothing at walmart.  YUP.  Nothing wrong with that, but I had a wise lady once tell me that you should not buy your clothing at the same store as your cleaning products (which I was ironically ATTEMPTING to purchase).  Bent that rule a bit.  Got a pair of “jeggings” (jean leggings).  I wanted to try a pair and see how they worked, but didn’t want to spend a bundle…Here’s what I came up with:

(except mine aren’t really as nice)

I also grabbed $5 leggings in grey, black and brown.  Go figure.  Alright, I’m outtie.  Toodles.

I need a U-HAUL…

For my husband’s dry-cleaning.  He had 34 shirts…Yes, you heard that correct 34 SHIRTS to be dry cleaned that I hauled to the Yoon’s yesterday.  Love me some Yoons!  They are sooo nice to me and have been calling me Mrs. Downes for the past 5 years (of which only .5 of those years I HAVE been a misses) so they are on my good side.  And, to put it bluntly, they ALWAYS ask if I lost weight-  The woman totally knows the way to this girls heart!  Anyway, look at this monstrosity!



So, after I got that errand taken care of, I ran over to Old Navy to get some goodies- stuff ‘n save is 30% off now!  How dangerous!


I ended up getting myself the black and siver one along with the red/white one for the holidays, and got bestie Bri the green one

This vest is AWESOME becuase there is a draw string inside that allows your to cinch it at the waist!  Ok, well, it’s off to work I go!  Have a great day!

“Livin’ in a Blogger’s Paradise…”

OK, if you don’t know what song the title of this post should be sung to, then…nevermind.”  Anyway, today is a “blogger’s paradise” becuase I have the day off!  Yay!  of course I miss my lil’ students, but I was able to get a LOT accomplished today (among those things, this all-important post being one of them).  So, let’s get started!  First of all, what is wrong with this picture (other than it being incredibly blurry and me being nasty devilish looking)?



Well, let’s start with the fact that I am holding a GLASS!  Yes, I ran my 4-miler today holding a GLASS! I neeeeed a water bottle!  Saw some really cute ones at Old Navy for only $5- what a steal- so I will stop there on the way to group and grab one (or two a few).  Anyway, back to the run- VERY good run today, although I had one of those really sweaty runs (I know, tmi) but do you ever have one of those REALLY sweaty ones?  I knew the shower was calling at the end of mile 1!  haha  Anyway, I was texting my brother-in-law while on the treadmill and my phone flew outta my hands and got caught in the belt of the treadmill. Boo.  Oh well, I collected it when done. 


So, today I was able to get a few chapters of this great book I began reading….oh, in June.  It’s called the Castaways, by my fav author, Elin Hilderbrand.  I am trying to get my mum to read a few of the books so we can discuss.  They all take place on Nantucket and are a welcome distraction from real life. 

So, while eating my (VERY LATE) brunch, I browsed the headlines and was ANNOYED.  First, “Mariah Falls on Leno”  (click below to see video).  I do NOT understand.  These people have TWO jobs to do :  1.  talk about themselves and 2. don’t look stupid while doing it (falls included).  I mean really, Mariah… funny though.


Another annoyance:  Cole Hamels.  Yes, Go PHILLS!  But, Cole…NO NO NO.  The comment he made has seriously gotten him into some hot water not only with his teammates, but with the Philadelphia PHANS… Bad choice.  Apparently he “can’t wait for it to end.”  Probably not the best word choice?  OH Cole…  WE CAN!

And the final headline that was of irritation (mostly by association)…SEPTA has gone of strike.  BIG whammy for bestie Bri- how will she come to my house teach her classes ?  Boo.  Anyway, today is busy busy busy.  Heading to group in a few, then going to CHOP to visit a student.  Toodles!
