it’s been a long week – and it’s only tuesday

Okay, so I really fail at updating my blog over the last week. Things have been crazy. Sorry blog and blog friends 😦

Travis and I had a hunormous fight the other night that very nearly ended in me walking the 600 miles home. It was a bad one. And while I understand his point of view, the argument only happened due to his inability to understand my point of view, despite how many times I have explained myself. And it’s really starting to piss me off. He has a tendency to be extremely inconsiderate and insensitive sometimes over certain issues and it causes a lot of stress for our relationship. There are only two things we ever argue about: sex and money. UGH – Men! But, we’ve worked it out (for the time being, at least), and both agreed to work on our parts of the deal. I think we can fix it… we just have to try a little harder than we have been.

So then, Vince (my cat) went missing for an entire day – I worry entirely too much about my cats. A couple hours I could handle, but he went missing about noon and wasn’t home by midnight when I went to bed. I was skeered, to say the least. Travis went out to check the door at about 4:30 a.m. and found him – in the garage, that we’d torn apart and checked 4 times already. Damn cat.

And then my mom told me she can’t hold up her end of the financial arrangement we made with her this month, which put us in a tight spot for our end of the month obligations. We did get Travis’s 401k check today (thank God), but all of the banks wanted to hold it for at least 5 days, and we have something we must pay on Friday, so we had to pay $80 just to cash the damn thing.

I did get to do a little shopping today though, and I will finally be able to organize my clothes, set up my closet and get my bedroom together. Plus, we’re going to the mall tomorrow – yay!!!

We went to Wal-Mart to obtain some caffeine, and I decided to check the clearance section again, just for kicks and giggles, and I’m so glad I did! I’ve been desperately searching for a denim button up, and I snagged a Miley Cyrus destroyed denim shirt for $7!!! I also picked up an L.E.I. yellow & brown & white plaid button up shirt dress for $7. How sweet is that? 🙂 There was a pair of shorts I strongly considered getting… They were white with a floral pattern. They came in two colors: blue or red, and both had a little yellow mixed throughout them. They were only $5… I’m going to the mall tomorrow, and if I don’t find something I like better, I might go back for them. I’m not sure. We’ll see.

But I am super excited about the denim shirt 😀

I do have some outfit photos to share, so I will be back with those either later tonight or tomorrow sometime. I finally got my sleeping schedule fixed, so I function mostly during the day now. Hopefully I can maintain this trend!

In the meantime though, I have a question. Remember the camo pants I wore in this outfit:
White button up & camo pants

Well, that day was actually the first day I’d worn those pants in, well, years. They’re not skinnies, so they’re kind of a pain in the ass to wear with boots, but they are really cute in this outfit. I’m considering cutting them off into shorts, and I think I would wear them a lot more often that way. Plus, that way I get more wear out of them in the summer while the military/desert trend is still hot. What do you kids think?

I like Quaker Oats

Yup. I love me some Quaker Oats. Dry. Like cereal without milk. Delish.

I’m a freak. I know.

This is the warm-weather friendly version of the last outfit I posted. I wish the camo pants were skinnies, but I actually got them before the skinny jean craze. Can anyone else remember life before skinny jeans??? I always swore I would never buy into the trend, and now I practically live in them. That was pre-fashion addiction, of course.

Hope you dig the outfit, it’s my first real foray into the military trend. Add my dark brown bomber jacket and aviators and it would be perfect for a cool spring day, IMO. How does everyone else feel about the military type trend? I really want an over-sized army jacket.

Having hair issues lately. I desperately need a haircut. All of my layers have grown out, and I’m afraid to do it straight because I don’t want to look bland, but my hair only cooperates with the scrunchy thing for part of the day. ARGH.

The black cat is Lily. Normally she runs from the camera, but for some reason when we were taking these shots, she decided she wanted to be a fashion model too. She wouldn’t move! She’s sitting in my lap now as I type, which is a vast improvement from where she normally tries to sit while I’m typing (on my keyboard). She’s a little attention whore, but only on her own terms. She’s the cattiest cat I’ve ever had… and I’ve had a LOT of cats.

I’ve started watching The City on MTV Tuesday nights. It’s about fashion, so I feel it’s legitimate research! And I love it. Whitney is so sweet, is was good to see her stand up to Olivia, who really pisses me off. I just wish I had the back story! Someone please fill me in… what happened on Season 1 of The City??? Why do they hate each other so much?

Anyway, I’m off to watch The Good Wife. I have LOTS of cute new outfit ideas for this week, so check back tomorrow night for an outfit post, and be sure to vote for this outfit, and my previous one, on Mode Republic & Chictopia!
