2 minutes in heaven is better than 1 minute in heaven.

You know what I like?  I like shopping.  I loooove shopping.  (I don't like spending money, but we're not talking about that.)

I am not usually the kind of person who can tandem shop, unless it's just for funsies.  I am super picky about my clothes and most things, and I'm really indecisive, and when I'm with other people I usually get all flustered and either buy something I don't really like or buy nothing at all -- and those are the two things you just don't want to do when you go shopping!  So sometimes my idea of fun and relaxing is to hit up the mall all by mahself. 

I like Forever 21, because it's a sign unto me that the Universe is a happy place when there are $2.50 necklaces for me to buy.  It's impossible to say no. 

Today I went with the intent to find something "pretty" and "girly" for my hair, because as it turns out...I don't have hair accessories that are either of those.  Sometimes I think I must have missed the seminar that every other girl went to in their tweens that taught them how to be a proper girl, like how to put your hair in a messy bun and how to do your makeup so you don't always look like you just fell out of bed.  I would get an F on these things.

You know where I would shop if I were a rich person?  Urban Outfitters.  I just, I would. 

And if anyone knows where a girl with ultra wide feet and ultra high arches can get a cute pair of sandals, would you just let me know already?

I'm determined to go swimming this summer.  So a friend and I went swimsuit shopping, and this is what I bought myself:

'Cept I got the yellow boy shorts instead. Lime Ricki has the cutest suits.


I quit my job.  Did you know that I had a job?  I worked in a daycare, in a classroom of 8 toddlers.  But not longer, because ! I have a new job.  As a private nanny.  For one (that's right, one (1)), infant.  In case you don't know kids, this will be a huge change.  I start Monday.  Excited, yes.  Already missing my toddlers?  Ohh man. 

So, sorry for the blog neglect.  Part of it is due to the state of my craft room, in which the computer resides.  Our stuff is still largely boxed up, and I don't know, I guess my mojo has just felt like hibernating.  My attention span has been mostly Tumblr-sized.

I hope all y'all have a happy Memorial Day!

p.s.  Just watch this.  Just do it.  Business Time
