Last week I cleaned a bunch of perfectly good things I no longer wear out of my wardrobe and I did what I pretty much always do with those things, I gave them to Lara. There was a jean jacket in the pile and she gave me this one out of her wardrobe, claiming she could never figure out how to wear it. It’s a moto jacket, so I’m pretty sure I can handle that!
It’s supposed to be in the 90’s today! But my office is like a Frigidaire, so I am still rocking a jacket and boots. I am going to be out pretty much all day so I wanted to make sure I would be comfortable anywhere. I am working (with a break for celebratory Mexican food at lunch!) and then we have what may be our last half price food night at Meridian Room with Nick and Colleen before they move out to San Francisco, and then after that we have to do the grocery shopping we put off on Monday before the situation gets dire and we start eating Klondike bars for dinner.
That can is a Sugar Free Red Thunder, from Aldi. It’s basically a generic version of Sugar Free Red Bull, and a co-worker discovered them for me. It’s a huge budget saver. I was thisclose to having to give up my morning Red Bull because we just can’t afford it anymore. If I buy them in the 12 pack, they are about $1.60 each. The Aldi version is a buck each. So that’s almost half the cost, and they taste pretty much just the same, so I was really stoked to get them!
I’m cheating and wearing a sports bra again. It just seems so much less offensive peeking out than a “regular” bra, it’s so super comfortable and it doesn’t feel binding at all, the way my Strap Perfect sometimes can. I totally hear those of you that mentioned that it’s not super flattering, and I am sure the flat chested 11th grade version of me would be absolutely mortified that I was not taking full advantage of my new and improved* boobs, but I’m not so fussed about it, to be honest.
I know some of you have expressed interest in getting a better look at my tattoos, and someday I’ll oblige, but for now, I have some things I need to do before I’m comfortable with that, some touch ups and cover ups and what not. But someday, I promise!
I need to make an effort to wear these earrings more often, because they are beyond cool, and I love them.
*I didn’t get boobs until I was well into my 20’s. I was an A cup (but I wore a B out of pride!) until then. They came with my weight gain, but they mercifully stuck around after I lost the weight.
