Whoooooo, day off! I spent this day with my sister, doing girl stuff, like getting our nails done. It has been years since I last got a pedicure. The polish on my toenails were chipped like no other, and I've just been too lazy to paint them myself. So there you go. It was nice to be pampered in that way. But it was a little awkward when the lady who was doing my nails told me I was pretty and then started to sing "Who let the dogs out" and proceeded to bark the "who, who, who, who." I... just... I don't know about that. There was kind of a language barrier between us. Maybe that has something to do with it.
I got a handful of compliments on this dress today which made me super happy.
-Not being able to sleep when Ryan was out of town. I'm such a baby.
-Ryan's car is dead. This probably means that we'll reserve the money we have saved up for a trip for a new car instead.
-Washing my undies in the sink because I forgot to do laundry
-We had a "service auction" for church (an auction used with points rather than money) and the thing I offered, a free family photo shoot, got some pretty high bids! I wasn't there, because I totally forgot about it, but it's nice to hear that a lot of people want a photo shoot from me. Perhaps this will be a great business opportunity to get more clients.
-Speaking of family photo shoots, I've got photos of a cute little family to edit :)
-Going to a wedding reception where hats and gloves were encouraged

This dress happens to be one of those dresses that you might be unsure of at first, but then when you try it on, it's magic. Never underestimate an article of clothing you've never tried on.
Tonight is a night that I spend all alone. Ryan is on a camping trip for church with some tween kids. I went thrifting earlier (and what a magical trip it was), but now I sit, blogging, eating Taco Bell, and watching iCarly. Don't judge.

Has anyone else noticed that in iCarly, Freddie wears these honkin' tall shoes to make him seem a little taller? They're like the ugliest shoes too. That's probably how I noticed, because they are not appealing. Has anyone else noticed that? No? Just... me...?
I got my haircut yesterday. I went from hating it, to loving it, to hating it again. But today I like it. My hair just naturally flips out when it's this length. I think that's a good thing? Flippy hair? Anyway, I really like my bangs now. I really had to instruct the hairstylist on how I wanted them cut.
Trivial girl stuff.
