Journal Entry #262

Nothing is more peaceful than eating a Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup with a hot cup of black coffee while blogging. It seems to be like a routine thing for me nowadays and I just love the combination.

I’m feeling so good about being back in the blogging game. I’m not all the way caught up on reading your posts YET but, I am hammering away and getting one out everyday again over here. Soon I’ll be back to weekly Recipe Reviews and CONSISTENT Journal Entries, every other day.

Tuesday night, after I published my last entry, I did my hair and makeup for work. I had one and a half mixed drinks (Pineapple juice & Patron) before boyfriend dropped me off and another one later on, with a client and my co-worker. I, fortunately, had a very successful night that allowed me to take yesterday and today off to get refreshed for the weekend. I was there from 11 PM-3ish AM.

Yesterday, I dug into a new book called, Eliza and Her Monsters. It’s my second book by Francesca Zappia and I am already 50% through. It’s such an easy read and I am definitely enjoying it so far!

When I finally got my nose out of the book, I went into the shower and realized I STILL HAD MY CONTACTS IN. I can usually never see anything so, when I could read every soap bottle in my shower, I was like… “what the fuck!” I guess I was tipsier than I thought I was and went to sleep with them in. I even showered before bed so yeah, don’t know how I didn’t even realize it then…

Oh and the night before that, get this: I opened my contact case and the right side was filled with solution but NO lens. I must have missed when trying to put them in or something, I have no idea. I think I’m getting too comfortable with my contact removal procedure… I must pay more attention from now on LOL.

I took them out right after my shower. They were dry and almost stuck to my eyeballs. I don’t get how some people often sleep and shower with theirs in. It gets so uncomfortable, I could NEVER do that on purpose.

I watched the new episodes of Love Island (US) and Harlots. I was NOT happy with that ending… I am now scared to see what happens in the next one. Is anyone else watching??

We had BBQ meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and baked beans for dinner. When I ran out of shows that I wanted to watch, I finished writing up my Ipsy Glam Bag post. After publishing it, I checked my notifications, and spent the entire night reading blogs on my Reader.

There was one intermission when we went to Albertsons because we needed more mayonnaise and bread. While there, we ended up getting those jarred hot peppers and bacon, as well. πŸ™‚

Boyfriend made us yummy sandwiches with roast beef, turkey, lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumbers, hot peppers, bacon, and mayo for a midnight snack. Mine was on Pumpernickel Rye bread and it was sooo good!!

I continued reading blogs until it was time for bed. I tried to fit in a chapter of Eliza and Her Monsters but my heavy eyelids wouldn’t let me.

Today, when we woke up, I read a big chunk of the book before getting showered for the day. I watched Love Island (US) and Big Brother, ate a delicious dinner of salmon, scallops, and green beans, and then, hopped onto WordPress to type this. πŸ™‚

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week so far!! We’ve almost made it to the weekend!! ❀

  1. Mmm, coffee and a chocolate pb cup sounds divine!

    Crazy about your contacts! I don’t know if I’m brave enough to wear them. So far my eyesight is good, but I’d be freaked out by putting them in and taking them out!

    All of your eats sound so good. Especially BBQ meatloaf and that sandwich your boyfriend made!

    1. Yesss… coffee & chocolate are so good together, aren’t they?! ❀

      You are lucky to have good eyesight!! I was nervous about putting them in & taking them out when I first got them, too, but it was easier than I thought & OBVIOUSLY I don't even think about it anymore LOL.

      Thank you!! The sammies boyfriend makes are better than any deli!! ❀

  2. I am not a fan of dark chocolate, but I do love the milk chocolate Justins!

    Mmm coffee.

    I was in the process of getting caught up on blogs until my internet was down a couple days off an on. Ugh!!!!

    Laughing at your shock at being able to read everything in the shower! My BFF used to fall asleep with her contacts in until one time she woke up with an abrasion on her eye and had to go to the eye specialists at Loma Linda Hospital or whatever its called. Had to be treated regularly and wear an eyepatch. Not fun. Take those things out!!!!!

    No, sorry, I do not watch either Love Island (US) or Harlots.

    Sandwich looks and sounds delicious! Pumpernickel is my favorite!!!

    1. Have you tried the dark chocolate Justin’s PB cup though?? I had to double check the package when I took a bite last night because I was worried it was milk chocolate by accident, it’s so sweet & rich. ❀ so perfect with coffee!!

      I hope your internet has stopped acting up now!

      LOL I was like, 'okay what is going on? I can see!?' but that is my biggest fear, what happened to your BFF. I USUALLY don't even shower with mine in. I hope I am not stupid enough to fall asleep with them in ever again!

      Ahhh, I don't think you'd like Love Island but, I do wonder if you might like Harlots? Hmm… maybe not though. πŸ˜›

      Pumpernickel is so delicious. Boyfriend was scared to try it!

      1. Yes I have tried the dark chocolate Justins PB cup. No thank you! Milk chocolate only for me. However, I do love a Mounds, which is dark chocolate and coconut. LOL Always exceptions to the rules.

        Laughing about boyfriend scared to try pumpernickel.

  3. Your morning routine sounds amazing πŸ˜‚ I’ve been so in a rush most mornings that I feel I haven’t been able to enjoy too many lately.

    The most I’ve ever done is nap in my contacts before. And my eyes were so dry afterwards I never did it again. No idea how people go days without taking them out, or sleep with them in all the time! I hear about it so much, I could never do it. My eyes dry out too fast πŸ˜‚ and if I smoke it makes it worse – I don’t even like wearing contacts when I do because of that.

    1. My “morning” routine is def very relaxed compared to other people’s lol but if I worked earlier, I’d be in a rush, too!! & probably always oversleeping. πŸ˜›

      Yeah!! I hate napping in my contacts– it’s the worst & smoking dries mine out, too!! I have NO idea how people go days without taking theirs out, my sister is like that.

      1. Haha my days off are similar, but I don’t get many of those these days πŸ˜‚ I’m always in a rush, but I don’t oversleep. I just wish I could wake up early and not leave to go to work πŸ˜‚

        And it is! That’s crazy she’s like that. I couldn’t do it

  4. Oh man I really want contacts I’m sick of my glasses especially when I film or have pretty makeup lol
    I’ve been eating sandwiches all week and I’m looooving it! Such a simple and easy meal. May have to meal plan for the week haha
    I have two books with me right now so I’m hoping I can finish reading them both before the month is over but they’re pretty long so who knows!

    1. You should get contacts!! I love glasses but contacts are super convenient to have, too, & yess, when you have pretty makeup on– you don’t wanna hide it!!

      Sandwiches are so good lol you can change them up in different ways, they taste different every time & they make a full meal on their own!!

      Ooo, I’m curious, which books are you reading? Did you ever create a Goodreads account? πŸ˜€

      1. I’ll look into them I’m not sure if my insurance covers contacts. I’m due for another eye exam that I ended up skipping last month lol.
        Sandwiches are one of my favorite things to eat during the summer no joke lol
        I’m currently reading The Great Gatsby because I couldn’t find other books in my library and/or there’s a waitlist. I also got a book called “Everything is Fucked” by Mark Manson. I’m hoping I can finish the Gatsby book this week to start on the other one. And yes, I do have a goodreads account.

        1. Hmm… I think some insurances do cover contacts! I hope yours does so you can try them out. πŸ™‚

          I AGREE! Sandwiches are the best in the summer!

          I HATE the Great Gatsby LOL. It made no freakin’ sense to me & I read the whole thing, I swear. I hope you enjoy it & your other book, too!

          I tried to find you on Goodreads but, couldn’t find you. 😦

          1. Awwwh haha I actually havent read all week and I had hoped to finish it by Thursday oh well. Lol.
            And have you seen the movie then? I enjoyed the movie but maybe because DiCaprio was in it haha
            Oh let me find my username or something if i remember correctly, Courtney couldn’t find me either and idk why? Lol. You could also send me your username in case you can’t find me maybe I’ll find you

    1. That’s why I always workout after I shower. Someone once commented that they thought it was weird/I was the only one who did that (?) but I can’t workout with glasses & I don’t like showering with contacts in! Mine get so dry & uncomfortable, too!

  5. I’m glad I don’t have to wear contacts. The thought of putting them in/taking them out freaks me out. lol I thought of buying some of those cosmetic ones though but I’m scared of putting them in. They make some really cool SFX ones though, like cat eyes, demonic eyes, etc. lol It would be funny wearing them to stores and stuff and seeing the looks I get. πŸ˜›

    Mmm that sandwich looks yummy. Your bf did a good job. Pumpernickel always makes sandwiches look more fancy and delicious. πŸ˜›

    1. I so wish I didn’t have to wear contacts OR glasses. They’re both such hassles!! I totally get why taking them out/putting them in would freak you out, I was scared of doing it at first, too.

      I’ve seen those SFX ones!! So cool & crazy!!

      I agree about Pumpernickel looking fancy & yes, it’s so yummy!!

  6. Oh my goodness, blogging with coffee and a peanut butter cup sounds wonderful! Such a relaxing combo! I always have my coffee when I blog but it’s also always at around 8am so no chocolate for me yet lol. πŸ˜‰
    That sounds so scary with your contacts!! Did it hurt when they are all dry and stuck? There is a reason why I only wear glasses, lol! Contacts scare me too much, I hate touching my eyes or the idea of putting something in my eyes. O.O

    1. LOL YES, today I am gonna do chocolate cake & coffee with blogging. πŸ˜€ Do you eat while blogging in the morning?

      YES!! The contacts were like a sticker on my eyeballs, it was a stinging feeling but not SUPER painful, y’know? I hated it!! But yeah, I thought the same about contacts before I got them. You get used to it though & you never actually touch your eyes, ever when you put them in & take them out! I still prefer glasses, I just don’t like them for dancing/work.

      1. That sounds so delicious! I haven’t had chocolate cake in forever! Oh yes, I always have a granola bar with my coffee. πŸ™‚

        Oh my gosh, that sounds so awful!! And that’s why I get freaked out about contacts lol. I’ve heard all the horror stories and it’s enough to make me happy to stick with glasses haha. But I get why they wouldn’t work well with your job! They’d probably fall off with dancing.

        1. Mm, mm I just found this vegan chocolate cake & can’t get enough!! I haven’t had a granola bar in awhile though, there are like no dairy-free ones that taste good!!

          It was seriously awful & yeah, if I had a different job, I would probably never wear contacts! I noticed that glasses do give me a headache more often though.

          1. Oh I never thought about granola bars having dairy. That’s disappointing, I’m sure! I like a certain brand from Aldi because it has 10g of protein, no artificial flavor, corn syrup, or dyes, and they only have like 5g of sugar. πŸ™‚

            Ahh yes each time I get a new pair of glasses, it takes awhile for me to adjust to them and I always have bad headaches for awhile. That’s the worst part of getting new glasses. I can imagine if you don’t wear them constantly, they would still give headaches when you do wear them! :/

            1. I’m still so sad we don’t have an Aldi around here. Their ingredients/nutritional facts are always so good!

              I totally think that’s it because I never really let myself adjust to the new glasses!
