Potter & Dropkick & Shimmer, Oh my!

Today I went out to pick up a new bottle of Victoria’s Secret – Very Sexy – Shimmer Mist since my bottle runneth-dry. It’s a MUST in my perfume collection at all times. Ordinarily $15.00, I got it on sale for $10.00! Yayy!!

While at the mall, I stopped in at Hot Topic at my sister’s suggestion. They were having 50% off all clearance and a ton of other sales. I figured I could pick up a few awesome graphic t’s for way below average price, so I went in the one store I hate more than any other… not because it doesn’t have awesome shit from time to time… not because it’s always packed with pre-teen wannabe rebel anarchists… and not because of the shitty music they choose to play… but because Hot Topic is the established anti-establishment and that bothers me.

Back to those t-shirts! I got two soccer style t’s… and they’re fantastic! The first is (yet another) Harry Potter shirt!! Hooty-Hooooooo! The other is one of my favorite bands, Dropkick Murphys!! L♥VE those boys (I met them… they signed my “Irish Ass”… literally.)

The back of the Gryffindor T says: POTTER!!!! (bitches!)

A nice, cheap fix for my shopping addiction! (I’m so broke right now, it’s ridiculous!)


Back in the Saddle

I had all four wisdom teeth removed on Tuesday. It was quite the experience.

It took a while for me to feel the nitrous, and I panicked a little when I felt the surgeon messing with my arm. I believe I pleaded “Please, not yet, I’m not ready!” (I’m so afraid of needles!) He told me not to worry and waited a little bit longer, then I felt him messing with my arm again and I began to get panicked again, then I felt the pinch and he said “See? That was it.”…

… then I remember waking up. The dental assistant said “You’re dad is coming back now.”

“Follow the yellow brick wall!” was the next thing I heard from the hallway and I thought “That’s my dad.”

Dr. Karpinski and Liz at The Center for Specialized Dentistry were absolutely amazing!!! I would recommend them to absolutely everyone! Especially anyone who has a lot of anxiety about their dental work.  They made me feel so comfortable by telling me everything that as going to happen, followed up to the T (no surprises!), and both Dr. Karpinski and Liz were funny, warm people who made me feel completely safe and at ease. Their absolutely amazing care was so appreciated. I want to send them a thank you gift, or at the very least a card. It meant a lot.

I didn’t do much of anything after surgery on Tuesday except pick up my drugs and soft foods. BTW, all of a sudden I like Yogurt. First seafood and not yogurt, my tastes have been changing like crazy…

Wednesday I was still pretty puffy and kept myself pretty drugged up. I managed to organize and clean my bedroom, closet, dresser and vanity though.

Thursday I was feeling better but my sleep patterns were all messed up and I was still uncomfortable so I took my manager up on her offer to stay home again and layed around the house. Later in the afternoon, my mom took me and my two sisters shopping for dresses for the rehearsal and I got a whole bunch of lingerie as well. I love lingerie…my first job was a lingerie department sales girl at 15, I lied and said I was 16 (I was turning 16 in 2 months and they took a copy of my real ID, so they should have noticed….). I’ve always just loved pretty undies. But no pics of the beautiful bounty will be posted… that’s a little too porno for me.

So today was my first day back to work. I was still on the meds and so I made the decision to go casual for the day:

Comfy jeans and new Star Wars t-shirt. (I ♥ it!). Oh and check out my super cute, totally adorable owl tote… I’m beginning to feel like one of those old ladies who collects something weird with all my owl sh*t…. but they’re so cute!!!

I spotted these sunglasses on Fat-Aus.com and immediately clicked over to ASOS to buy them…. AND THEY ARE OUT OF STOCK!!!! I nearly cried.

I LOVE APPLES… it’s up their with my Owls obsession… in fact as a side note: I’m pretty much programed to be a fucking elementary school teacher with all my owl and apple shit… anyway, it’s inevitable. I just need to graduate college one day. (I want to be a Doctor of History, God Damn-it!)… excuse my self reflective tangent.

So I fell in love with these and I’ve been searching high and low ever since for a pair of Apple shaped sunglasses. If you have any tips let me know!

I haven’t had any soda since Monday! woo-hoo! Been working the abs. Drinking all water and vitamin waters. I’m pretty proud. I need to go really low calorie from here on out though. The wedding is exactly one week from today and I need to de-bloat a bit. Anyone know of any quick (even if temporary) ways to drops some inches?

Knowing I will need to be exceptionally picky with the cals this week and having lived off of soft foods for the last few days, I was making a hearty, comfort food dinner tonight.

Herb & Garlic Backed Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and green beans! I was delicious… and too filling. I think I’m good to diet. But damn, I waited long enough… I need to slim down just a tab in one week!

TIPS TIPS TIPS!!!  Please?

Casual Day

I wore won of my favorite t-shirts today (I’ve mentioned it on here before). I just love my nerdy little owl. “It’s not how you look but how you see.” -Such a wise little owl.

My blue navy blue sweater has pretty much become my designated work sweater. I bought it went I was working at the clinic because you couldn’t wear a sweater or jacket unless it was navy blue… yeah, I know. Luckily, I look fantastic in any blue, so I didn’t mind. But even now, working at the theatre, I bring it with me just about every day. …I need to switch it up more. -mental note. added to fashion to-do list.-

Thats about it today. Sorry there’s nothing more interesting to say.

Recovery Day

Today I enjoyed one of my last days of freedom before a very busy month at The Lyric starts. Mostly I just hung about the house with Casey.

I got this Bob Marley t-shirt a while back, but it’s pretty flippin’ awesome if you ask me. I loafed around in my comfy jeans and T and paired my outfit with some of my Jade jewelry (I LOVE Jade!) and my humongous Peace ring by Lucky.

I was good today and only had one Starbucks. (bringing my 2011 total up to 6… and we are only two days in.)

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

I definitely have a lot to be thankful for, my friends and family above everything. Today, Casey and I joined my family for dinner along with Shannon’s fiance, and Sarah’s boyfriend; this was the first time all three of us had a significant other at a holiday meal at the same time. It was cute.

After dinner, we hung about for a little and then joined Casey’s family for dessert later that evening. It was great seeing his niece and nephew (who was loving all the fun he was having with Casey) and the rest of his family.

I wore my new Jim Morrison T from H&M with dark skinnies, black suede boots, and to soften it up, my gray cardigan with pearl buttons. I accessorized with bangles and pearls.

And since it’s Thanksgiving, I want to thank anyone who reads this blog, it really means so much to me. My friends put up with listening to me ramble on about it constantly, and I can’t thank them enough. Also, I’m so thankful to some friends who are fellow bloggers, with whom I share a mutual support. Two of which are: Neon Canvas and Confessions of a Rockaholic. Thank you for the support guys!
