Good day. I say good day!

Today was a successful day, I feel.

We thought we were going to leave work really early, but then when we were almost done packing up the last order of school planners for the day...someone noticed the school's name was spelled wrong on the cover. FAIL. It said "Thomsom" instead of "Thomson". By the way, these planners go through many steps of different people looking at them and it took THAT long for anyone to seriously think anything of it. Anyway, after working on undoing all that we had done for that school, our boss told us we could leave at noon anyway. Even though I could use the extra money from working those last few hours, I decided to leave and get stuff done.

I got my hair cut. This was extremely overdue. I cannot adequately explain to you how bad it had gotten. I loved the length, but there were some seriously awful split ends happening. (Probably because my last trim was in January...) So yes. I got about 2.5 inches feels short, but sooooo much healthier. :)

Then I went to the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch. Definitely a win.
This picture is bad. BUT. That would be No Doubt - Tragic Kingdom (from 1995), Sugar Ray - 14:59 (from 1999), and The Rembrandts - L.P. (also 1995). 
THEN I found these: 
I had these shoes (only a size smaller) maybe since 9th grade and got rid of them senior year? I don't know for sure. I LOVED them, except they were kind of small and hurt my toes a lot, so after years of hoping it would improve, I finally gave up. These shoes actually crossed my mind recently, randomly enough. And here they were at the thrift store. They're a full size up from my old ones, which is a bit much. I could've done with a half size. But I can make these work, with those weird things you can buy to stick in the know. Whatever. I am so excited to have these shoes back in my life. I just need places to wear them now. :)

BONUS: all 3 CDs and the shoes were less than $5 total. I love that place. Although I was disappointed that they didn't have any cassettes. I want some tunes in my truck. 

Finally, went to the dentist today. I accidentally haven't been for a year and a half...and oooh my goodness do my teeth feel nice. Seriously. I am never waiting that long again.

So, happy day. Happy blog update. Happy almost the weekend! :)


Manicures and Falling trees...?

I'm a fail at keeping up with this. :( I still haven't posted anything about the 3OH!3/Cobra Starship concert, and I've since seen Gin Blossoms (loads to discuss there, mostly regarding the weird people at Rib Fest)
But I always do this when I need to be going to bed. So once again, I'll say that I'll tell you later. Sorry.

But for now, today I did my first legit french with white, not a bright color. I'm kinda proud of it, not gonna lie. It'll probably chip off by tomorrow afternoon though.
This is really blurry because I took it with my phone. for some reason my real camera is refusing to interact with my laptop. So is my iPod. And now only one of my 3 usb plugs works? Definitely making a Geek Squad run soon...

While I'm posting phone pics...we lost another tree on the block this week :( My view is way to open now. I am not a fan. I don't want to lose the ones in front of our house, but I'm sure it's soon. 
During the job(from my closet..haha): 
And after..:( 

That is all for today. 


Home alone.

This evening, I was home alone for a few hours.
I cleaned my room. I organized my stuff. It finally feels like I live in this room.
Then I went to my friends' apartment and specifically avoided drinking.
Then I came home, finished cleaning, and watched youtube.
Ha. I'm awesome.

P.S. I've been up since 4:40 and it's 1:25. I should be sleeping.


Mini Vacation. Candy. Etc.

Today, my family went on a mini vacation. We went to the Buggy Wheel antique place (it's off Highway 10 on the way to Detroit Lakes) which amused me. I saw awesome old bikes and was really tempted to buy an old Samsonite suitcase...but it was a weird brown so I resisted, despite having long been on a quest for old luggage. (I want to store things in it, not actually use it for travelling.) Then we went to Shoreham and ate fried walleye, which was delicious. We drove through DL for fun, and I was super disappointed to see that the long-defunct and creepy looking- but very much a place I remember from childhood- Kiddieland was now an apartment complex. Even though it closed when I was really young, I still was amused by looking at its rusting, falling-apart rides. They were pretty creepy and dingy looking when the place was still open.

On the way home, we went to the General Store in Sabin. (Here is their website if you don't know what I'm talking about I love this place. Got a HUGE waffle cone of cookies and creme ice cream, so-called single scoop that could leave me full for an entire day. Also picked up some Mexican Fresca, Pepsi natural, and a cream soda for later. I love going there because all these unique and classic pops come in glass bottles, and I am basically obsessed with glass bottles. I collect them. They also have weird, retro, and foreign candy. I picked up some Canadian/British candy :

I have had the Smarties before but not the coconut, although I'm assuming it'll be pretty similar to a Mounds. While looking around at all the awesome candy, I finally found a candy I have been searching for ever since I was introduced to it earlier this spring...the TWIN BING!

It is actually a super weird candy but I definitely fell in love with it...whoops :P Seriously, though, I was so excited when I found them.
It is ridiculously hard not to buy every candy they have...

Also. Last thing. Completely irrelevant. But today after I took a shower, I did not wrap my hair up in a towel to dry it, then comb it out. I just let it dry without any combing whatsoever. SHOCKER: it dried all wavy! Seriously, I am so excited. I try really hard to make the waves come out, and the secret all along was DO NOTHING! Mind blown. Hoping that it's not just a one-time occurrence...



I have been thinking about you a lot lately. Damn. I thought maybe I was getting close to getting you out of my head.

That is all.

I have to sleep now.
