Oh the joys of having very fine hair. When I straighten it, it curls. When I curl it, it comes undone. Alas, I give up. I do however, really like this outfit! Nice, light layers for unpredictable Michigan weather. I actually bought this dress last summer, but never styled it up for the blog. It is kind of on the short side, so I really only like wearing it with tights, and now we are finally in tights weather, woot woot! This is pretty much my ideal outfit: dress + cardigan + "leather" jacket + flats, yes.
I have also become a lipstick-wearing person as of late, go figure it takes until I am almost 29 years old to figure out lipstick, but still. I think the trick is to put it on a little while before leaving the house, so that you get used to wearing it, and are not thinking about it as much once you are out-and-about. That, and constantly asking your husband/friends if it is still on, or if you have managed to get it on your teeth. Do this about every 3 minutes. It won't get annoying, I promise.
I mentioned last week that Wednesday is movie night at our house, well I have a "thing" planned for most weeknights. Mondays, I prep blog posts for the week (I look them over on my morning 15 minute break at work, and then post them. And then go back 5 days later to correct typos). Tuesdays are exciting, because I read on Tuesdays. I usually have to babysit on either Tuesday, or Thursday, or both, so I tend to catch Liam up on Doctor Who, feed us dinner, do some chores, wash up, then after my dad picks him up, I read. It sounds super lame to designate one night per week specifically to reading, but I will end up doing something else if I don't force myself to sit down and do it.
Right now, I am working my way through the Harry Potter series again, but I have also borrowed books from friends, so making time to read is necessary. I don't want to be a dick and borrow things without ever giving them back, because it's rude, and I am rude enough on my own (I am kind of a dick, just ask Kyle).
