Mike Mike Mike Mike! Guess what day it is. That’s right! It’s time for the Awesome linkup with Anne from Love the Here and Now, and this month she’s co-hosting with Lindsay from Bourbon, Lipstick & Stilettos. I’ve posted in this linkup before, and it’s always fun. So let’s just dive right in to the 10 awesome things that have happened or are happening in my life!
— I had a great Fourth of July weekend. For the most part, it was really laid back and relaxing, and it was great to spend time with friends. I also had to work really hard getting ready for inventory at Ulta, but besides that, it was a pretty relaxing weekend, and I’m really grateful for that.
— I have a pretty new planner. While I liked the planner I had before (because it had dinosaurs on it. I mean, come on!), I wanted one that had a ring binder so the pages would stay open easier. I ended up ordering The Happy Planner, and I absolutely love it! I ordered it a few weeks ago but July was the first month, so I can finally use it. Yay!
— I have a new car! Yes, my purple Neon is out and my silver Impala is in! I still just can’t get over how much nicer this car is than my last one, which was basic in just about every sense of the word. I’m really enjoying having a reliable vehicle, plus it has a CD player so I can listen to Michael Buble whenever I want. Chicka chicka yeah yeah!
— Diet Coke. That is all.
— Chocolate. See above.
— Alert the media: I cleaned my makeup brushes this weekend. I’m a pretty exciting person, I know, I know. There aren’t many things more exciting than using clean, fluffy makeup brushes. I know I need to clean my brushes more than I do, and sometimes you don’t think about how dirty your brushes are until they’re clean, but then when you pick one up and use it you hear “Ahhhhh” angels singing. And no, I’m not being dramatic (okay yeah maybe just a little bit).
— Orphan Black season two is amazing. I finished season two on Monday, and I’m still just in shock over how amazing and crazy it was. Do any of you guys watch Orphan Black?! If not, then you NEED to! Gah. It’s just…it’s amazing and intense and dramatic and funny and moving and…everything. Just go watch it. Right now. Seasons one and two are on DVD, and season three comes out on DVD next month (although I haven’t seen season three yet so no spoilers!). GO.
— I saw Magic Mike XXL. Just…whew. I mean…that scene in the gas station was probably my fave. If you’ve seen it, you’ll know why I was laughing hysterically the entire time. I’m going to see this again with different friends tomorrow night, and I just can’t wait. #noshame
— I just keep swimming. It seems like there have been a lot of obstacles or negativity popping up in my life lately, and I’m doing my best to not let any of that get to me. I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful boyfriend who listens to me rant and rave and panic and squeal on and on about various things without judging me (or at least not too much). See GIF above for one of my other recent stress relievers.
— It’s actually been sunny the past few days! Of course today it’s supposed to be cloudy and rainy…but for the past few days before this, it was sunny and only mildly windy and not swelteringly hot. So, almost normal summertime weather. Yay!
