photo journaling

april 16: egg puffs, smoothie making, library visit, mud people
My brain grows full of things I want to write about late at night as I am drifting off to sleep. I get excited and energized about whatever it is I am thinking about but never get around to it when I have the time as I either forget what it was or I feel too tired to write.
april 17: green smoothie love, dress making, marimekko, egg gift
So instead of stressing out about the lack of blogging or any sort of writing really, I have been trying to capture four pictures that reflect my day.
april 18: classroom fun, hot weather, new leggings
I do not get around to it everyday, but I try. It's like a mini photo blog...like Instagram but not.  I hope you enjoy!

just like old times?

I forgot to wash my face last night and woke up with my eyes rimmed in mascara all smudgie, like how I woke up back in my clubbing days, only with wrinkles and an extra chin or two. When I tried to wash all the gunk off, I only managed to drag it down near my cheeks and make my eyes all red. I tell ya, no matter how old you get, teen angst can pop up at any time.

I gave up on trying to wash my face and pumped a quart or so of moisturizing spray into my hair in an attempt to get the curl back. It ended up looking like I went to bed with hairspray in my hair  after a night on the strip.

Since I had nowhere to go, I pulled on a pair of new jeans to test 'em out. After wearing them for two hours I found that while I could not readily bend in them, my skivvies could. Sadly, they were a no.

Spent the rest of the day in newish acid wash jeans that are so big on me it's silly. Sillier still is the fact that I even purchased a pair of acid wash jeans.

I miss the days where I could wear tights, combat boots, and a thrifted mini dress without discomfort.
