Hey all. 🙂

I just put some cookies in the oven. I had saved three from the batch I baked last weekend because they didn’t fit on the cookie sheet last time. I hope they’re still okay to eat.

I got my order from Rainbow today!! I was beyond excited! I opened the package to make sure everything was in it (everything was!!) but I haven’t opened up any of the individual packages yet.

I do think the bikini top I purchased is waaaay too big for my itty bitty titties!!! I hope the pads are changeable somehow. 😛

I am über proud of myself because throughout the past few days I have completed all of our laundry (minus a load or two because we keep wearing more clothes everyday). I hung up everything that needed to be hung up in the closet, organized all of the drawers, folded all of the bottoms and other un-hangables. I sorted out a good amount of items to throw away, I have an even bigger pile of items to donate yet… I still ran out of hangers, closet space, and drawer space.

I ordered a donation bag from thredUP (which I heard of from Jamie) but, I haven’t received it yet. The ETA was the 26th? It is now the 28th. I wonder if it’s still coming.

I wanna (and will) do some type of try-on/haul post with all of my new clothes from Rainbow… prob sometime next month. It’s gonna be so much fun, just gotta figure out how. 😀 😀 I am tightly crossing my fingers that there’s nothing that’s too small, too big, too ugly, or damaged at closer inspection!!

Yesterday, boyfriend had the day off but, it was time for me to get back to work. I honestly can’t even remember what we did during the day before I went. We ate dinner and watched Big Brother. I’m pretty sure that was it?

OH! As usual we went to Starbucks but after, we also went to this Mexican supermarket called La Bonita because I had a hankerin’ for some of those tamarind candy sticks.

I had no idea there was hot food and such in there ^! We def have to go back and try some; it all smelled wonderful! We also picked up some mango lollipops, chips, and salsa.

Before I headed into work, boyfriend and I stopped for some alcoholic beverages. I had two (pineapple juice and Don Julio) and I think he had three (Coke and Seagram’s 7). I made it into work around midnight, had another cocktail when I was there but started feeling real tired around 2:30a. I decided to call it a night when I prob should’ve stayed much later.

I took a super quick selfie in the bathroom mirror where boyfriend and I went for drinks because I wanted to show Rossy my Gingham patterned dress that matches hers!! ;D

I got my dress from Hollister Co., maybe two years ago. My white, lace bralette underneath is from francesca’s (probably my favorite store, ever).

I noticed the Gingham pattern is super popular this summer. Are you guys loving it, too?? Or is it not your style? I had no idea it was even called “Gingham” until a few months ago, to be honest. I called it the “picnic blanket checkered look” hahaha.

When I got home, boyfriend and I had a pointless, drunken bicker with each other before bed, blah lol… we woke up and didn’t even talk about it (there really was no need), I just wished him a good day as he left for work. Next thing I knew, I awakened from my deep slumber and he was walking back in the door? I guess his manager had called him when he was just turning in to not come because it was too slow. She said she had to call him and someone else off for the night, too. He asked if he could come in for a couple hours but she said it was way too dead for him to come in at all.

I am SO SO ready for the summer to end!!! Hopefully August flies by as fast as June and July did.

We smoked a blunt in bed when he came home. I read on my phone a little bit and then, I took a shower while he started cooking dinner. It needed to simmer for a little while.

I watched an episode of Recovery Road while I waited. Boyfriend went to the store to get the cats’ fave cat food and some bread to make garlic bread.

I started another episode of Recovery Road, the dinner was done in the middle of it and right when I was done eating, the episode ended! I was like, “wow! Nice timing!!”

After a little fooling around we went to get our espressos. I wanted to try a different Starbucks today because I feel as if the one we regularly go to is jipping us out of our full shots of espresso.

(I TOTALLY SOUND LIKE A CRACKHEAD, DON’T I?!)

We went to the one inside the Boulder Station Casino this time and had to pay around $2 more than usual. (*eye roll*)

I think we’ll just go to the regular one from now on. Boyfriend thinks I’m delusional. Maybe I am… but I don’t know. I really do think they don’t give us all of our espresso every single time.

ANYWAYS, after the coffee run, we came home and I started typing this. I just had a cookie. I burnt the bottoms of them a little but, you can’t tell by the taste. They’re still delish, okay?!

I should go get ready for work now. Hope you all are having a fun and/or relaxing weekend. ❤

  1. Yesss, I love receiving packages in the mail! I prefer online shopping over visiting stores but I always worry an item won’t look good or fit the way it should be… and then, I’d have to go back into the store to return it which more or less defeats the purpose of shopping from home LOL.

    1. It’s so fun opening everything up, isn’t it?! 😀 I rather shop at the store but, online has SO many more options! I get what you mean about having to return things too! Such a hassle. 😛

  2. Girl I LOVE how real you are! I love packages and I can not wait to see all your fab purchases from Rainbow! I LOVE Thredup! It is the lazy way to make money off of clothes. (Though I wouldn’t give some of your better brands to them, as you won’t get as much money for them as eBay or poshmark) La Bonita looks like my kind of place! I could eat mexican food every single day all day! And I LOVE that outfit! you re so stylish! I hope you have an amazing week ahead beauty! ❤

    1. Hehe thanks, Kate! ♡ Packages are the best, aren’t they? So excited to show you my Rainbow purchases! I don’t really care for the money, I just am happy they will take it & donate what they don’t want so it is all out of my room finally!!

      I can’t wait to go back & try their food one day. I love Mexican food, too! & aw, you’re so sweet but I’m not even half as stylish as you are!! Hope you have an amazing week ahead, too, love! Thank you!

    1. Oh stop it, Jennie!!! You are really too sweet. ♡♡♡ I had fun looking for the dresses that looked like mine, I was wondering if mine was still out there but, it’s not lol.

  4. I sent in a donation to Thred Up a couple weeks ago! It takes them a loooong time to process it, so I’m still waiting to see how I like the whole process – I definitely want to hear your experience with them! I buy most of my clothes there now 🙂

    1. How long did it take your “kit” to show up in the mail?! I still haven’t got it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the whole process, too! I’ll definitely let you know what I think!

  5. I love that cut out dress! It is so cute and I think those styles are the best, where they take like a classic look and modernize it with cut outs! I don’t really care for gingham on ME, but I love it on others! Super cute on you. 🙂

      1. LOL YES, I saw some with a sticker on them that said “made to be seen” & I had to show my boyfriend because he always talked crap about how they’re BRAS and shouldn’t show ahaha. Well, he still does but at least I got to prove my point. 😀

      2. Hahaha so true, sometimes I still feel that way because I grew up being told you’re not supposed to show your bra–ever! Old habits die hard. 😉 But times are a’changing! 😉

  6. Definitely want to see a try on style post from you. I wanna see what. It’s clothes you got. I haven’t shopped for clothes in what seems to be a very long time. I’m gonna wait until I get slimmer because I noticed that some of my jeans are already pretty loose. I don’t want to buy anything until I’m done with my exercises lol.
    Anyway,I’m still cleaning out my closet and re-organizing everything. I’ve taken so many clothes out because they don’t fit and a lot of it I gave to my sister lol.
    Isn’t Mexican candy the BEST???! Ugh I’m so sad I’m cutting out sugar right now (two days in) because I could definitely go for some tamarind lol.
    Omg that dress is CUUUUUUTTTTTTEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! I still haven’t walked into Francesca’s, is it expensive? Or relatively affordable like H&M? I feel like Forever21 is just a tad more expensive but i could be wrong lol.
    Anyway, I’m so glad to be catching up with your posts lol. Maybe once I’m all caught up with everyone’s I’ll go back to read some of your older posts.

    1. I hadn’t really shopped for clothing besides picking up a piece or two here & there in awhile! I’m so excited to do the try-on post but I have to figure out a way? lol. 😛 & that’s a good idea! You could motivate yourself by going on a shopping spree when you’re happy with your weight loss! I think you’re fine just the way you are, honestly though. ❤
      YES YES YES I LOVE Mexican candy SO much. ❤ Do you remember when the tamarind sticks had big black seeds in them?! I was looking for those & the spicy kind but I didn't find them. 😦
      THANK YOU!! I remember telling you that I would take a picture in it the next time I wore it because it's so similar to the one you have!! ;D Francesca's is a bit more spendy but not extreeemely & they have such good deals all of the time. Like BOGO half off anything in the store goes on a lot, I usually don't shope there unless a sale is going on! Their clothes are SO high quality though, everything I've bought from there has lasted forever, even though I was things that say hand-wash or dry clean only LOL. OH & they color coordinate all of their clothes in the store, it's just heavenly lol.
      Really? I always felt like H&M was more expensive than Forever21 by a little? They're both pretty similar!!
      Thank you again, Rossy!!! You're so awesome. ❤ It really means a lot to me that you take the time to read my blog!! ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. Well I’ll be waiting for it!! 😀 I’m sure whatever you come up with will be great 🙂
        Aw thanks! I’ve struggled with my weight forever, that sounds a little cliche because everyone says that but it’s true. I’ve gained weight, I’ve lost it, I’ve gained it all again, I just want to be more toned LOL
        YESSS! I remember thosee!!! Omg I’ll have to see if I can find them over here! If I do I’ll send you a few 🙂
        LMAO that store sounds extra but well worth it 🙂 I’ll check it out sometimes, hopefully when I go to the mall again they have a sale 🙂

      2. Can’t wait to show you!! 😄 & just keep working hard, I see you already eat really healthily! You’ll be toned in no time, babe. ♡

        And I went to a small Mexican store for sweet bread but didn't see them, maybe I'll have to go to the Mexican supermarket across town and see if they have them there. Which they might, you never know lol. If I find them I'll let you know immediately lol

      4. I’ve only seen the straws without seeds online on Amazon, but don’t buy them online lol. That’s shady and some people weren’t happy with what they received. I will do my BEST to find them lol.

      5. I saw those on Amazon, too & almost bought them LOL. But, luckily I decided to check out La Bonita first!! Maybe the ones with seeds aren’t made anymore?!

  7. Can I just tell you… one of my favorite things in my free time is just have a chance to read your blog recaps?!

    Girl, I feel your pain with the bikini top! I can never order one size sets either because my bottom is much larger than up top. The struggle is real!!

    Danng you go girl! Isn’t cleaning out the closet the best feeling?!

    Can’t wait to see the Rainbow post.

    YUMM. I’m allll about the hot food. The hotter the better. I want like 10% flavor, 90% my tongue falling off. Haha.

    Such a cute dress!!! Ahhh a Francesca’s just opened in the mall near us and I almost peed my pants from excitement. LOVE that store!

    Bahaha – you crack me up with your Starbucks journey!

    Still excited to catch up on more posts. xo

    1. Really, Mack?!?! That makes me so happy especially coming from you!! ♡♡♡

      The swimsuit actually wasn’t a OS, I was able to choose a small for both the top & bottom! The padding is just really big for some reason & I know an XS would’ve been too tight at the band, you know?!

      Yesss cleaning feels so good after but not during lol. I am the worst about keeping things neat & tidy. 😫

      I can’t wait to show you the clothes I got from Rainbow! & yesss spicy sisters ♡♡ it’s so crazy to me that some folks can’t even tolerate a hot cheeto. 😂

      Thank you! Francesca’s gives me all the heart-eyes, it’s such a lovely store, isn’t it?!

      You’re the best for taking the time to read & comment on my blog!! ♡♡♡ I can’t wait to read your blog, hopefully tomorrow!!!

      1. Aw, I mean it ! ❤

        haha- I feel you. I always clean hard at the end of the day, but during the day anything goes. My roommate in college would always say Tornado Mackenzie went through. LOL.

        Girl- yaaas. At Thai or Indian restaurants I always ask for the spiciest possible, and still have to ask for extra spice after. never enough! haha.
