TGIF


Happy Weekend kittens.Hope everyone has a fun filled one ahead. Nothing on the agenda besides watching one of my college girlfriends coach a lacrosse game at USC..it will be interesting to see her on the sideline not the field!!

I also started cleaning out my closet and listing on poshmark..has anyone used it? I'm undecided still, but it has been a day. We'l see. You can shop through the widget on my page!

Sassy Water

With Stagecoach right around the corner (64 days..but I'm not counting) I am doing everything I can to be healthier and in great shape for three days of bathing suits and bikinis. 

I found this recipe for Sassy Water, which isn't too much different from the regular pitchers of water I drink daily. You're *supposed* to drink a gallon a day, and gives you a flat belly.

The jury is still out, but it is quite refreshing!

The Most Perfect Dress Ever Created


Ok guys, for real, if I got this Red Valentino dress, I'd never ask for anything ever again. I promise. It is just the most perfect dress for spring, and I need it to be mine. Unfortunately I think it is a little short for me to try to convince my mom that she needs it so I can borrow it, but I am thinking this may be my treat to myself courtesy of my refund from Uncle Sam.

Stay

I hate how much I am obsessed with Rihanna's new song, Stay, but it has been on repeat since I heard it at the Grammy Awards last week. It is just hauntingly beautiful, though a little part of me dies each time I think that it is probably about Chris Brown.




 
Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can't live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay, stay.

Happy *LONG* Weekend

Happy Weekend loves! Anyone have any fun plans for the long weekend?? After going to the LA Kings game tonight, I am planning on escaping with Georgie to the beach for the weekend.  Maybe bring a book or two or three.  Anyone have any recommendations?? I heard good things about Girls in White Dresses and have been wanting to read The Happiness Project.

Sweet Talk

He doesn't have much to do with this post. other than just how adorable and sweet he is.


 We're going to try another installment of Sweet Talk over here. Just a note-I'm not writing these for sympathy, or to be a martyr. I wanted to write them for two reasons, to be more honest here, and for me, to write out my flaws and to own them, it forces me to try to change my behavior. That being said, today's topic: Over thinking.


It is amazing my ability to over think ANY situation. An accepted invitation, a work promotion, or an unanswered text-they all have hidden agendas. "They must not have better plans" "They feel sorry for me, they don't actually think I am doing a good job." " He hates me--or is dead in a car accident."

I can over think an outfit, a song choice, dinner reservations, silence, and Friday night plans.  I over think what is ahead, what is behind, and probably sideways.

I waste a lot of time in my head stressing about things and situations that are most likely not true.  That also doesn't really allow me to enjoy the great moments that are happening...I'm always finding some hidden agenda that causes a lot of anxiety. Why do I do it? I'm not exactly sure..I know it's ridiculous.  Maybe it's so if the worst case actually happens, I won't be a surprised, or to protect my feelings. Maybe it's because I've been hurt when I least expect it, so I just want to expect it. There's nothing worse than being blindsided in a situation. I've  spent more time over thinking how this post will go over than using to express my feelings on it. If you couldn't tell, my disclaimer at the beginning of this post was due to my thoughts on how my readers respond to these posts. It is really just a vicious cycle-I've probably over thought myself out of happiness a hundred times, but never into it.

So, since today is Ash Wednesday and it is odd for me to not give up anything, I am going to try a different approach.  For the next 40 days, I am going to try as hard as I can to give up over thinking, and perhaps all that goes along with it. If someone says something or acts a certain way, I am going to take it for face value...good or bad. I am going to remind myself
