So, just as I predicted, I spent yesterday virtually packing on Polyvore. This is what I’ve come up with so far, except that white sweater with the zippers, I have it in a dark green, not white.
In exactly one week, I’ll be heading out to the Mid-West for a long 4 day weekend with my boo. That means, I should probably start packing this weekend. Or at least do my laundry, so that all my clothes are clean to pack. With the first three days of weather looking like this;
I’ll probably be packing my warmest sweaters, and giant puffy North Face jacket that Darren wants to burn when I’m not paying attention. I’m a visual packer though, so I need to see what my outfits will look like once put together, or I end up bringing 15 pairs of shoes, 7 pairs of pants, and 37 tops, for four days. I need to make sure I won’t hate it when I pull it out of my suitcase. Luckily for me, I discovered I can pull into Polyvore actual clothing items that I own, and make up outfits. I have two put together so far, and I for-see a lot more outfit creations in my future.
For example, here’s what I’ve picked out for our dinner and a movie date to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
That peach blouse may get switched with a newly acquired purple silk blouse, but we’ll see. Ok, I’ll probably pack both, who are we kidding. And, if there happens to be snow in the forecast, this outfit will do nicely for schlepping around outdoors looking at houses.
I suspect this will help me with my over packing problem immensely, and it’s kind of fun! Anyway, moving on. After taking last week off to recover from my muscle injury in my back, I hopped right back into week 4 of Phase 1 this week. You would think my muscles would remember the workouts after only a week off, but no, I am just as sore as I was in the beginning. Especially in the chest area, why do push-ups never get easier? I’m excited to start Phase 2 next week, but my lady friends who just started Phase 3 are kind of scaring the crap out of me. Their workouts sound awful.
Alright, I’m off to go look at houses online, and create more outfits on Polyvore! Happy Thursday!
Weeeeeeeeeee! It’s my last day at work until December 27! Of course, I will be working from my mom’s living room in PA tomorrow, but that doesn’t really count because I can do so in sweatpants. Last I talked to Dar, he was about to enter the great state of PA from Ohio, driving on about 3 hours sleep, and getting cranky. I told him to try to figure out how to fit a nap into his day so he’s still awake when I get home at 10 tonight.
In typical pre-vacation fashion, I went from having 0 work to do all week to having 30 things to do before the end of the day tomorrow. Lovely, at least today will hopefully go by quickly. After work, it’s home to pick up Pumpkin, my 5 bags of clothes (not even kidding) and then up to PA we go. Anyone have any tips to keep my cat calm in the car? Our last few adventures she crapped in her crate within the first 30 minutes and cried the whole time. I’d like to avoid that if possible.
Yesterday I fit in a full body lifting session at lunch, and today I have an appointment for some um bikini wearing maintenance. That should be tons of fun. Alright, well I should probably get started on the mountain of work awaiting me. Happy Thursday y’all!
