Tools for Blondes
Sooo a few years ago I shared a post about my crazy and incessant need to check and make sure I unplugged my straightener about a million times each morning.
My mom knows me.
She got me the WeMo switch for Christmas.
This puppy can shut off power to the outlet from a phone app just incase I forgot to turn the straighter off.
Complete and total game changer.
I’m not sure who was more grateful, me or Will.
Chaps-tick Hate Turned Chap-stick Love
Remember this NYX chapstick in my December Ipsy I didn’t really like because (even though it tasted delicious) it made me look white and pasty like I had concealer on my lips?
Why didn’t we realize the wonderfulness this stuff could offer!?
It really does wash me out and look like a concealer over my lips BUT it works as a great sort of neutralizing primer to the pink in my lips so the lip color I choose is its true color when I put it on.
If there was any question whether I was old, rest assured-
I’m only 31 and have downloaded the Elevate app to keep my mind fresh and engaged.
You know, because little word games are supposed to do that or something?
I figure it’s not hurting. Plus it’s kind of fun to take a few minutes out to play.
THE BEST ROAD TRIP EVER
Sooo after the Garth Brooks concert we went to a couple weeks ago, Will and I had the brilliant plan to drive up to Ponca City and have a super early breakfast at Perkins (usually about a 3.5 hour trip for us).
If you read my blog way back in the Kuwait days, you may remember Perkins found a special place in our hearts during our trips back to the US.
We would fly to Minneapolis, shop at the Mall of America a couple days, and eat breakfast at Perkins.
We went back to Minneapolis in 2011 for old times sake (as well as a game in Green Bay!) and literally ate Perkins for 2 of our 3 daily meals the entire trip.
Now, if you live near one and don’t understand why we are so crazy for them, I get it.
There’s plenty of regional places people go batty for I just don’t understand, but it’s their “thing” and a special favorite place for them, so that’s what I get.
Annnnyway, long story short, we were so pumped to road trip up there after the concert.
As we were heading up to Tulsa for the concert, Will mentioned he thought we may have to wait an hour or two after getting to Perkins before they opened.
See, they’re open until 10 on weekdays, but 24 hour on weekends.
To us, that meant they’d open at midnight Friday.
“Let’s call and make sure,” Will said.
So I called and…
They don’t open until 6am on Fridays
So yeah, they’re kind of 24 hours on the weekend...if opening at 6 counts.
I was pretty bummed. I really wanted a huge mammoth muffin for midnight breakfast.
That’s all for today. Anything you care to share?
