Today I’m linking up with Fadra at All.Things.Fadra for Stream of Consciousness Sunday. Basically, it’s a 5 minutes free writing exercise (or brain dump) and anyone is invited to join in. The rules?
- Set a timer and write for 5 minutes only.
- Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
- Publish it somewhere. Anywhere.
So here we go…
Talked to mama yesterday who scolded me about my “sloppy” writing (my word not hers) on this blog. she said i need to proof read my posts a third time. third time? i laughed. i don’t even proof read it once. well maybe i do but it’s a skim if that. type. skim. publish. anyway my apologies, i’ll try to get better about proofing my posts.
have been getting into fashion lately. i used to pride myself on not caring what i look like. i’d wear what’s comfortable and if it happened to be cute then that was a bonus. now i’m addicted. fashion blogs? yes please. rachel zoe? omg…i die. and jeans jeans i love jeans and pants but lately i’ve been diggin’ skirts…and contemplating dresses. what? who is this person! anyway, until i win the lottery i’m afraid i’ll have to attempt to be fashion forward via thrift stores, ebay, and birthday gifts.
i really want lox. bagels cream cheese and lox. thank god we’re going grocery shopping soon.
and last week, mr.c made me grin. we’d bought $1 personal size bags of trail mix at walmart and i sent one to work in his lunch. unpacking his lunch box that night i find nuts, a few pretzels, and a ripped trail mix bag inside. i asked, “did you want to keep this for later or did you just eat all the good stuff out of it? the mr., absorbed in t.v. mode (ladies.. you know what i’m talkin’ about!), replied, “ate the good stuff”. lol it’s times like these when i get a flash forward preview of what our kids will be like.
There you have it. Stream of consciousness Sunday! Feel free to join in – post on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, or in the comment section here.
Now onto a recap of our weekend:
Chilled with N & B, plus B’s roomie M. Played some cards, watched How I Met Your Mother, at dinner (thanks B!), and then headed off to the movies. B & M went to Immortals (which is epic! Mr.C & I saw it last weekend) while Mr.C, N, and I went to Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1. Big mistake. The soundtrack is good but that’s about it. Acting was a little better this time around but much less action. The book was definitely wayyy better. We followed the movie with a few arcade games and late night TBell. Yum.
Slept in. Started a new book while Mr.C played video games. Hit up Goodwill before grocery shopping. Found a cute top and skinny belt but sadly no shoes for winter or jeans (in desperate need of pants… my last pair is threatening to rip..nooooo). Dinner of garlic bread and ravioli – delicious! From here? Laundry and Law & Order SVU while we wait for the newest Walking Dead episode to show up online tonight. ….Zommmmmbies…..
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
P.S. Only a few more days ’til Thanksgiving!
