As If I Needed A Reason . . . Confessions *

So it’s my favorite Blogging day of the week! Why? Because I don’t have to get all creative. I just get to throw it all up and hope you people consider  my word vomit worthy of the internet. If not, I’m sorry. Not really, but I’ll say it anyhow. Regardless, it’s time to confess:

So our power went out this morning due to a crazy storm. I would love to tell you that this is the reason I’m not posting until 4pm, but it’s not. I confess: I’m just lazy. After a morning spent living like a pilgrim, I decided to finally use a lighter to get my gas stove top going and make myself some hot water the old-fashioned way. Tea was a necessity. I then took it upon myself to completely remodel my daughter’s bedroom. (Because what else are you supposed to do with no internet, tv, bullet blender, and lights?) It wasn’t until about an hour and a half into this ordeal that I realized the power was back on. By mistake. I moved a lamp across the room and turned it on by habit, -TADA-it actually turned on. My dumb ass would have probably spent the better half of another 5 hours before I realized I wasn’t in the cretaceous period  if not for that lamp. Thank God I’m stupid.

I literally watched a full 25 hours of Pretty Little Liars Season 4 in only 5 days. That’s pathetic. Like seriously, that’s the equivalent of me staying up nonstop for an entire night AND day and not leaving the couch for anything. Or just basically doing nothing for like 5 days (5 hours a day) I don’t even care. I was all caught up for the second episode of Season 2 last night. It was like running my first marathon. #ForLazyPeople. I was so proud, until I realized I had to put up with commercials. Aint Nobody Got Time For That. Not to mention, I have to actually WAIT  7 days for the next episode? This must be what coming off drugs feels like. . . . #FirstWorldProblems.

I had to pay $64.00 for the dry cleaning  that I picked up this morning. WHAT THE F. I don’t even have a career that involves getting suits and pants pressed. I’ve not been this annoyed with spending  money on stupid shit for at least 3 months. I left feeling pretty much like this:

Tomorrow is Day 100 on my 100 Happy Days Challenge. I have NO clue what I should photograph to go out with a “Bang”. I could seriously use some inspiration so feel free to leave a comment or two on what you think would make a great finale!

I wore a dress and heels this weekend that would have looked great on a 21-year-old. On me? Not so much. I mean I can pull off leopard heels from time to time, but platform? No thanks, not EVER again. I also rode a party bus and danced at a club that featured half-naked women in platform cages and extremely loud music that I wasn’t familiar with. It became incredibly clear in a short amount of time that I’m officially not a 20 something, even if I’m entitled to another 1.5 years of 2_. It was an awesome night but for the first time in a long time, a bed, any bed, had never felt so fantastic. But seriously, I’m sticking with skinny jeans from here on out. . . .

I can’t stop making Frozen Hot Chocolates (And NOT From Tim Horton’s This Time!! – (See previous post that explains my past addiction). I came up with a homemade alternative (because I’m a frugal bitch) that is so stupid simple it’s just silly not to make 2-3 a day. Or 4. I am addicted already and I only decided to play around with a few recipes last week. So obsessed actually that I’m using my DIY Thursday post tomorrow to feature a recipe you can make with stuff you probably all have lying around your house already. Check it out if you want in on the affordable goodness that is to come.

On that note I’m getting the hell out of here before the power goes again . . . another storm rolling in! But before I run, let me remind you to head on over to Humpday Confessions with Kathy over at Vodka & Soda – the perfect place to air your dirty laundry.

If that’s not really your style (but seriously, who don’t love a good reason to get it all out), get on over to The Hump Day Blog Hop with Liz at Fitness Blondie, another great way to meet new Bloggers and share your simple selfs!

Cheers,

Silver White Winters That Melt Into Springs. . . *

. . .These are a few of my favorite things! #FridayFavorites. #YesIJustQuotedTheSoundOfMusic. #GetUsedToIt.

So anyhow: Hell YES. It’s 53 degrees out in Detroit and I couldn’t be happier it’s Friday. I would like to get this Friday Favorites kicked off with a few of the things that are just making my life today. . . . and basically this week in general!

Friday Favorites

First off: Sweet Tunes. I have been having one of those weeks where everything that’s roughly 10 years old is just rocking my world. I’m reliving my youth and I probably definitely made a new Spotify playlist that’s 581 songs of pure Indie Rock and distant memories. I couldn’t be happier about this. Lets review some of the bands that made this “My Youth & Yours” (Feel Free To Follow Me On Spotify: Chelsea Elizabeth Scally) playlist shall we?

Throw Back Tunes

Yes, I made this. No, I am not ashamed. #JustBored. Pretty much the best music you can find for a day like today.

Second Up: Fresh Air & Sunshine. Yes, this is for real. 50 Degrees. #SpringIsInTheAir! FYI, It will be in the 20’s again by Sunday. #Michigan. #CherishItWhileYouCan. I did, however, make the most of cruising to pick up our office lunch by opening up the Jeeper’s Sky Roof for the first time this year . . . . and of course jamming out to above mentioned tunes. Hey, I might even get a car wash today. . . . if you know me, that’s saying A LOT.

Third Runner Up: My Job, GroupGolfer.com. Deals are “Clubbin’ It Up” today. Golf is definitely in the air and warm weather is just around the corner. I always LOVE the first spring Friday when I come into the office and we are running a course in every market. . . .and they are all crushing it. It’s a happy happy day for golfers all around and it makes my day. #TeeItUp. Also, a big shout out to “Special Fridays” – another awkward term for Free Lunch Friday- and the selection of El Charro. Best Mexican on the East Side. #GreatWorkTeam. #ThatsANachoNotASalad. Oh and does anyone know where I can get a good pie at around these parts? #HappyPiDay! #LovePie. #FatKid.

Fourth and Final Favorite Of The Day: The #100HappyDays Challenge. It’s pretty much the coolest and most humbling thing I’ve participated with in a while. It’s basically a challenge to have 100 Happy Days in a row. You can check out more here. I’m only on Day 5 and already feel more grateful. It’s beyond simple. . .idiot proof even, all you need to do is snap a photo of one thing each day, moment, memory etc. and label it #100HappyDays. DONE. Don’t skip a damn day people! If you complete this challenge 100HappyDays.com sends you a photo album of all your Happy Days- (Don’t Forget To Register At The Link Provided Or Click On The Photo Below). Apparently 71% of people fail this challenge and the number one reason is claimed to be “Not Enough Time”. #Sad. I however, have every intention of completing this challenge and am loving every second of it. Seriously, check it out. It’s fantastic!
