Pre-New Year's Resolution

Stop spending unnecessary money!  Hubby and I are in the midst of something exciting (no, I'm not preggo) and I want to show him that I can in fact save money.  I took a peek at my credit card bill this past month...there were definitely some items on there that were not absolutely necessary (everyone needs 3 new pairs of lululemon pants right?!)...so I am really going to make an effort to buy only things I need. (at least for now).

I even went to far as to download a "money-saving" app (it was free...hubby already asked) called mint.  Check it out...it's actually really cool and eye-opening, especially because it breaks down your expenditures into categories and allows you to see what area (groceries, taxes, shopping etc.) you spend the largest % of money on.

Anywhoo...I know you all don't care about my finances but you might care to hear what I'm eliminating (again, at least for now)...mani/pedi's.  I've seen all these cool pictures on Pinterest (thank god that's free) of people doing their own nails and I think that I can certainly do that as well...plus I like my nails short with no frills (re: acrylics etc.)

Here are some "inspiration pics" (yes, i'm very into inspiration pics/collages etc. Get over it)
Love a good gray...especially in the winter

Pink is always a staple...what is it that Jackie O used to say... "Your nails should always be red and your toes the color of ballet slippers"...or something to that effect.

a great 'how-to' on nail painting...it really works (i tried)

love this fun glitter for NYE!

Hope you all had very happy Hump Days! Oh, and just so I'm not a liar, here's my "inspiration board"
laugh all you want but guess who got a new diamond anniversary band...

Back to work I go

Today was my first day back at work after Christmas.  There were mixed feelings about it...part of me wanted to stay in la-la land and lay around forever but another (more organized) part of me was ready to get back into a routine that didn't involve drinking wine, presents and sleeping.   I got up, got a ride to work from hubby (still not driving) and set to worky.

I ended up getting a lot of things done...and better yet, there was a very limited number of annoying interruptions!  Hooray!

Another good thing about today was that I ran for the first time in what seemed like FOREVER...and I didn't keel over and die or have a heart attack.  I just sweated profusely instead...I guess it's going to take a little more than one run to get me to this:
I just need to keep my eye on the prize...this picture will definitely be on my inspiration board for 2012.  I've been slowly collecting photos for it and will most likely put it together next week (along with writing down my resolutions).

Do any of you create an inspiration board?  I have mine hanging right above my desk so that I can see it every time I sit at my computer...I'll post a picture of it tomorrow if I get my shit together and don't get too embarrassed by it.

Happy Tuesday to you all...XOX

I'm losing it

Like seriously, I'm losing it.  There were a few times today where I completely forgot what I was supposed to be doing or what I was talking about.  I'm going to blame it on the increase in medication but not sure how much longer that excuse is going to work...

All I can do is laugh about it.  Here's a good one from today...I made cookies last night for 2 hours for a cookie exchange today.  I brought them carefully into work, made sure that no one ate any or even peeked at them...only to forget the f-ing cookies and lock them in my office.  I had to have freaking maintenance come and let me back into the office to get the damn cooks! 

Oh, and before that I was supposed to let the cat into the barn for the day...so I did...only not really because it turns out she was locked in the mudroom for 12 hours today...oops. Sorry Kitty!

The only thing that I seem to do without issue is go on Pinterest...so off I go...but not before I leave you with something I found on there just now:

love that sign...maybe soon I'll actually be able to have wine again.  Oh, and by have wine I mean have more than a 1/2 glass- that's not even really having wine- that's tasting it.  BOO!

Happy Monday Peeps! XOX

Totally not trying to gain sympathy in these posts...just trying to make light of everything so I don't get all freaked out...I mean being able to laugh at things like this are what makes it easier to stand!

Friday Fancies

sparkle and shine

I thought these sparkly/sequin shorts were super cool and love the look of tights under them!  The pink top gives a nice pop of color and goes great under the cropped tuxedo jacket.  Add some more sparkle with gold accessories and top it off with some false lashes and a shiny lip and you're good to go!  Happy Friday everyone XO!

little tid-bit

So I try not to get too personal on here (read: boring!) but I've had a bit of a rough 2 weeks, hence the lack of posts.

I had another random seizure that scared the pants off both myself and my mom, but I had two great doctor's appointments today and have a much more positive outlook on everything.  Sometimes you really do just need to take a step back, a deep breath and realize that things are never as bad as they seem.

Oh, and if anyone else needs a little pick-me-up, here's a little something that made me feel better when I read it...it has just the right amount of class and sass!
Oh, and a cute puppy that looks like Lu never hurts either-
Happy Hump Day People! XO

Mean Lindsay

Mean Lindsay

Mean Lindsay by lteevens featuring brass jewelry

So I've had a ton on my plate this week including millions of work issues, feeling sick and my car breaking down in the road....I had just taken it in 6-weeks earlier for a routine flush-out and maintenance check-up so you can imagine how bummed I was when the people said I needed lots of $$$ work done.  Finally, after many back and forth phone calls to the dealership, I walked in with my "lindsay means business face" (and this outfit) to give them a piece of my mind. 

Not sure why but I definitely felt cool in my leather jacket (that I got a redic deal on this past Saturday)!  Still waiting for a final decision/offer from the car place but just having told them how I feel made me feel better.

Enough about the rough week...I've been stewing about it long enough.  I'm a lucky girl and I just need to remember that when I get down.  

How has everyone else's week been?
