Sometimes I think plastic is edible

I have a plastic pellet dollar store gun in my apartment. Sometimes I like to shoot people with it when they come over and last night was one of those days.

Someone (who shall remain nameless for the sake of protecting his ego) came over and sat across from me in the living room. Naturally, I had to pick up my little gun and shoot him.

There were a good 4 or 5 pellets in his lap when he proceeds to pick one up and put it in his mouth. I just stared at him and said, "Are you really trying to eat that? It's plastic."

He actually thought it was candy. His thought process--oh it's small and orange--must be candy--it's going in my mouth. I literally fell off the couch laughing.

Katie and I laughed the rest of the night and anytime he wanted to make fun of us all we had to say was "You eat plastic pellets."

This morning as I was getting ready for work, I remembered Pellet-Eating-Boy and laughed by myself like a fool.

Yep that's all I've got. Crazy mother-in-laws.

I found this really sweet shirt at the Forever 21 in the South Towne Mall yesterday. I wasn't going to buy it but then I showed it to Katie and she convinced me.

Because it's true.....I really do.

New Caledonia

I ordered this little number from Shabby Apple on Thursday night
Needless to say I was more than pleasantly surprised when I looked in my mailbox this afternoon and found it sitting there waiting for me.....yup, only 2 business days later and there it was. Talk about getting things done.

Ordering things online is always a little scary because you don't know if it'll fit or how well it's even constructed but I really like this dress. Of course I tried it on immediately and it's not too shabby. Get it?

Anyway, the only thing is that it shows off your imperfections, mine being that I don't have a completely flat stomach. So I might need to work on that before Andrea's wedding. But realistically I'll probably just go with spanx.

Shabby Apple, I give you 2 thumbs up.

Faux pas

Wearing leggings as pants out in public. Please don't.

You can't pull it off, no matter how hot you are.

So girl at the mall, don't ever do it again.

I clocked in at exactly the same time yesterday and often does that happen? Almost never. I know what you're saying, that's not so odd, people usually go to work at the same time everyday.

Not I. I pretty much come in whenever I want, which is usually around 9 give or take half an hour :)

Yesterday and today I happened to clock in at 8:47 am. Super random time two days in a row, not planned at all.

I didn't set an alarm on those 2 nights so maybe that's just when my body thinks it's acceptable to go into work.

Either way, I'm a little creeped out. Especially since yesterday wasn't the best day at work ever. I'm hoping that doesn't carry over into today.

Ironies of life

I was talking with some people at work yesterday about how I'm lazy and take the elevator whenever possible instead of the stairs because I don't care if I die young, blah blah, whatever else excuse there is for being lazy.....I was half kidding half serious.

We have an elevator at our apartment complex, it was a big selling point since we're on the third was broken over the weekend and finally got "fixed" yesterday. I hopped in it tonight and it was a smooth ride until it passed the second floor, then the jerking began. Yeah I almost got stuck in it. In below freezing weather. That would have been a nice surprise for the repair man.

Karma? I think so.

Will I stop using the elevator? Probably not.

I need motivation

I've been attempting to do this
but am seriously the worst person ever to try to stick with something. I start it and give up about a week into it.....and that's happened twice.

Someone please force me to do it.
