Eyes Forward, Keep Moving and Don't Stop

Bet you thought I'd flown the coop.  I mean it's been a couple days and no Bachelor recap?! Truth: I haven't even taken a full look at this week's episode.  Blasphemy.  I overheard bits and pieces from the kitchen where I was *ahem* slaving away over a birthday cake turned massive bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough for the Chef. It was his birthday, so the Bachelor is waiting on DVR.  I know that fool Ben decided to keep Courtney and I know Kacie B laid down on the floor in the hallway of a hotel in Switzerland. I'm certain there's much more where that came from, but don't tell me! I need to see that mess for myself and will report back when done.

In the meantime I've been having some pretty productive, but long work days that basically render me incoherent at the end of the day.  Due to this work-related mayhem all I've been able to do is sneak instagrams now and then.  Here are some recent faves from the past week or so.  I am a firm believer in incremental rewards to make the days go by faster.  Examine the evidence:
I'd need a forest (or at least an alphabet) for the bracelet collection. 
New fave t-shirt states the obvious.
Break time with the obvious.
FP delivery containing the best denim vest since 1991. 
NDC Boots snagged on Gilt about a month ago. 
Envisioning some sort of flare-legged pant specially formulated to not need hemming.
Flea market here I come! Seeking fringe bottom pants...

Until then I'll settle for a nap.

If I wore that tee I would look like a crazy cat lady. You wear it and look normal. How is that?!?!

Tiana said...

I was like, "Where is my update???!!!! Where is my need to fly myself off a building due to the unthreading morals of society?!!!"

Haha- Oh, I kid.


Hope you are well. Free people has some awesome packaging.

ruthy ann said...

wanted to pop in and say hi! love reading your bachelor recaps...although I don't watch, your writing makes me laugh out loud!!

Amber said...

The weekend is so close! Hang in there!

Stop by & enter my Vedette giveaway!

You pretty much nailed what happened on the Bachelor, besides "sexy time". Gatos and boots and cookie dough sound like a far more productive way to spend your days.

Claire Kiefer said...

Goodness, Free People has the best packaging in the world. I have to force myself to stay away from their site cause it's my biggest weakness. As for the Bachelor, I am becoming more and more apathetic toward Ben's demise.

"The best denim vest since 1991." Reason 3805604566496 I adore you. The last good one was in fact worn by Donna Martin in high school, I think. And reason 3805604566497, by the way, is those boots.

Lori said...

Loving that tee and initial stand! I too have been absent this week ~ busy at work then lacking the words ~ have been so down this week that people really did not need to hear about it! Hope you have a great week-end ~ I am about to put on some disco and start cleaning my house ~ nothing like loud music to help you do a dreaded chore. xo

Kristin W said...

These pictures make me so happy. The shirt, the cat, the boots, the initial tree. If nothing else, you perked up my day.

I think there's something in the air...work has been a madhouse for the past few weeks. Hope you're relaxing this weekend!
