Happy Friday friends! I cannot tell you how glad I am to see the weekend because girlfriend has been struggling. I have this new thing where my body refuses to get out of bed in the mornings. Like, it’s a straight up “Hell no.” I snooze, I toss, I turn, but nope. Nada. Zilch. There is no waking up to be had here. The rest of the days I am tired and sluggish, I feel exhausted to my very core.
I swear if somebody says “pregnant” I will punch them in the face. Well that’s a little extreme, I probably won’t really punch them in the face, but I will tell them quite vehemently that they’re wrong.
Moving on. Today I’m playing fashion blogger, and here’s why: Last night I stayed up way past my bedtime pretending to be a model and living it up at Tootsies, this fancy boutique in Dallas. Like I mentioned a couple days ago, the Southwest Blogger Society put out a call for models and – thinking there was no way they’d pick me, as I only joined like half an hour ago – I answered. So there I was, modeling a super cute dress I can’t afford, saying embarrassing things to a room full of strangers that I don’t really remember because #stagefright and having fun with some of my DFW blogger friends.
And then the most wonderful of things happened.
THEO JAMES SHOWED UP AND WE DECIDED TO RUN AWAY TOGETHER. I WON MONEY. Tooties just so happened to be running a $100 store credit giveaway, and I just so happened to win, and with the $50 store credit I received for acting a fool modeling, it just so happened I could afford these $140 Sam Edelman shoes in “bordeaux.” And as we all know, I just so happen to be board with anything even remotely related to wine.
Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go keep admiring my new shoes. Everyone have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!
