This title is a little cliche, but let me finish- I spent this weekend doing a few things that weren't my top choice. I really tried to be gracious, I promise! Butttt then I just turned into whiny irritable me. Since joining the work force, I've become pretty particular about my weekends. It will be very interesting one day if and when I become a mother, and have to put other's interests above my own all the time! How do you parents do it, seriously??

Bright side: I re-wore an outfit from last week; and even in my whiny state, Hunter took me out to lunch and snapped some photos for me. I love the way this combo of prints turned out! Also, it is freezing out (and I was freezing taking these pictures) but who says you can't wear bf jeans in the Winter? Not me!
Also, behold my beautiful new purse that I've been using every day because it fits my a) laptop b) planner c) journal d) wedding notebook and an assortment of other
junk goodies. I just like to be prepared, ok!
I will never not feel slightly theatric in this hat. The day I wore this to work, I was unwillingly entered in a "Who Wore It Better" contest with a co-worker in a sombrero (har har.) Then I remembered we were hosting a large event, combined with a staff lunch so, talk about being conspicuous (or, large and in charge.) I had a personal affirmation moment in the bathroom when I was washing my hands, I looked in the mirror, and thought: ehh, I like this hat, it's fun for a day, and I like what I'm wearing, regardless.
After church on Sunday, Huntee & I tried out Flipside in 12 South. It's somewhat of a modern diner with the most abundant and gorgeous natural light, a chicken-filled menu, and: Trivial Pursuit on every table! I can get behind that. Also a big fan of that water jug.
Huntee had breakfast Jambalya, I had the "brunch special" chicken, and we switched to vintage sports trivia after Baby Boomer trivia. Both equally difficult! But fitting for Superbowl Sunday, I suppose.
Alright everyone, have a great start to the week! And if you feel yourself getting whiny, put on some lipstick, and shut your mouth (this is my advice, from myself, to myself ;)
