1} . father’s day .
after our tumultuous traveling the past month, bryan wanted nothing more than a quiet day at home with me and zu, for his first father’s day.
i made him breakfast in bed. zu and i gave him his card. we went walking, watched some School Rumble, had church at home. when zu went to bed, we sat on our front porch and watched the fireflies.
i’m still working on getting bryan’s father’s day gift. he knows what it is, and i think we should be able to…capture it…in the next day or so. more on this, to come….
2} . mom style .
as much as i’d love to look like this
in real life i look better in (and gravitate toward) looks like this
which is essentially the same way my mom dresses. except more plain.
i don’t know how this happened. my sisters each have defined styles–when we’re out shopping, i can always point out things that look “so karen” or “so lauren.” even bryan has more style than me–plaid button ups, superhero t-shirts, converse and black rimmed glasses.”indie-ish nerd” is i think how he would define it. plus, guys aren’t truly indie until they wear skinny jeans.
i don’t like scarves. i don’t wear jewelry, except for earrings every once in a while, my wedding ring and posey ring, and the same plain silver pendants bryan gave me for various occasions. i don’t look good in stripes. i used to wear stripey pants in college, but despite the recent fad for weird-pants, i think that style is best for those under 20yrs old or over 60.
next time i come into some money, i think i’m going to go shopping (or most likely, thrifting) for
1) button-up shirts
2) plain but well fitting tops
3) cotton pants that i could wear to work or at home
4) cute flats (i also have never been one of those girls that loves loves loves shoes but maybe that would keep my outfits from being so incredibly plain?)
i really have my eyes set on these:
next time i buy anything, i’m getting these cuties.
3} . jillian michaels, again .
i tried doing the jillian michael’s 30 day shred at the end of april/beginning of may but then we started our traveling and i stopped doing it. so starting tonight i’m going to try to do it again! the videos get really boring but i liked how i felt so much stronger after just two weeks. lets hope i can stick with it this time!
