…expired in our backyard.
I on the other hand found inspiration to ignore today’s writing goals and do my best to capture the perfect image of deflated hopes and dreams…
Unlike sane people, Chris and I have a crazy love for little burros. We believe the world’s problems are being solved behind those blank stares and if there were only a way for us to tap into their thoughts humanity would finally find the keys to peace and brotherly love. I’m serious, we LOVE donkeys, we take photos of donkeys, we purchase artwork with donkeys in it, we even have dreams for a little burro on our own little farm! YEA DONKEYS!!!!
Two weeks ago I read an advertisement for “Haulin’ Ass”…
This commercial has been playing for a couple of months and I have to say that I still love it as much as I did when I saw it the first time. A, she’s beautiful and perhaps the only woman I’ve ever seen who can pull off frosted green eyeshadow. B, I love the message, “goofy is sexy” (for obvious reasons). And C, the song makes me clinch my fists and roll my shoulders to the beat a la Big Willie Style…that’s Will Smith for those of you who didn’t spend the 90’s gettin’ jiggy with it.
Thought I’d share a few snipits from this past week along with my quest to find a Valentine for Chris. Yes I know it’s a week after the fact, but Chris has been out of town since before Valentine’s Day so I’m good on time.
Feb 13, 2012 – An honest attempt at buying a Valentine before the actual day
Lindsey and Alyssa, The Catering By Design ladies treated us, The Calluna Ladies, to lunch and then pedis at Ten20, the absolute best nail salon in Colorado!!! Our date lasted from noon until 5…I’m sure (like me) you’re wondering “How does she fit it all in?”
Tu-Ha is my absolute favorite at Ten20 and I always request her but unfortunately she wasn’t avail and because this was a gift from the Catering By Design girls for all of our wedding collaborations I ended up with Angry Anita… who was especially angry after I took this photo. Usually I can find something “bathy” for Chris at Ten20 but no luck, all of their gifts were pretty girly this time around.
After mindlessly grazing through Monday, Tuesday AND Wednesday I decided to pull up the old resolutions to re-energize my 2012 commitment to health and fitness and to once again remind myself that women without work or kids should probably have slammin’ bodies. Oh how the delight meter soared (insert snark) when this little empowerment exercise reminded me of the four Colorado triathlons I’ve sworn to complete by the end of this summer…
Three thoughts came to mind:
1. Who forgets a resolution like that?
2. What was I thinking, and why the number four?
3. Where’s all the spunk and energy I had when writing these resolutions? “Under the 18″ of snow you were bragging about on Monday” says the bag of chips sitting in my lap. “Thanks for the reminder bag of chips” says Spice… as you can see, the snow really does a number on my enthusiasm for exercise.
