short shorts and a random brain

i am feeling much better today – thanks to those concerned 🙂
although i gotta say that the day didn’t get better and my morning started off terribly!
when it rains it pours i guess.

i bought a pair of work out shorts the other day.
since it’s summer and work outs are getting harder because of the heat
i decided i should wear as little clothing as possible.  a pair of work out shorts seemed like a brilliant idea
so i put them on and walked over to the gym (my third day in a row – can you say sore muscles?)
i was rocking the shorts.

i started my work out…and don’t the shorts constantly bunch up?
there is nothing harder than moving like a maniac on an elliptical and trying to pull your shorts down at the same time
these things were riding so high i am sure the people behind me saw the full moon a couple of hours early 🙂
normally…as you know…i care not what other people think
but seriously?  no one needed to see that.  i felt so insecure…wondering how much of my ass was hanging out.
so i am rethinking the shorts.  maybe i will keep them for hanging out at home.
the shorts were a bad idea.  good intentions – bad idea.
i may as well have just gone to the gym in my skivvies.

it was a frustrating workout – but i got through it.

got my iced coffee as my reward for keeping my shorts on and headed home to cook dinner.

dinner was cooked (not so hard as i had quite a bit of leftovers), dishes done…time to chill for a little.
i started to doze off when the phone rang.  it was my beautiful niece.
she had stories to share.
she was talking so fast and was so super hyper i only made out a couple of words.  my mom came on the phone to translate.
turns out that the little brat just decided to leave her house and go to my parents house.  by.herself.
insert heart in my throat emoticon here.

she is 2 and a half years old and she is walking up the street alone.
crazy child…and bad daddy.
she on the other hand was very impressed with her independent jaunt
oh man she is gonna be trouble when she gets older…i can feel it in my bones lol
so much like auntie bee this one is

i intended to wake up this morning earlier than normal
i wanted to stop and order a cake for a very special someone before work

i woke up and felt “off”.  looked at the clock and there was no time displayed
ran out to the main room and noticed all the power was off.
what time is it?????
i slept in by 20 min.  got ready so fast…thank god the hot water had not run out…
but i had no hair dryer or straightener
i am looking like a mad woman today.
a kind coworker told me that crazy hair is in this summer…god bless her soul.

things can only get better
besides i have a very important date this evening…
now there’s something to look forward to!

Compromise – a picture post

life is never going to happen the way you plan.  Not always…

my life is pretty regimented as of late.  i have a plan, and i like to stick to it as close as possible.  I am a creature of habit for sure…but the Sagittarius in me craves the unexpected, the unplanned….i love spontaneity.

So Friday evening, the evening was mine…after working out of course.

Well, i had the opportunity to attend Luminato.  Luminato is Toronto’s Festival of Arts and Creativity.  If you would like to know more about it, click here

It was the opening night, and a girl i know was playing the sax for Sass Jordan.  Who can pass up the opportunity of seeing a sexy, fiery red head playing the sax??  She is totally my pretend girlfriend…she just doesn’t know it 😉

So anyways…there was no way that i could get home, cook dinner, work out and get ready all by 6:00pm.  So…i sacrificed the work out.

All hope was not lost.  Instead of taking the subway to the event…we walked several blocks.  After the event we walked down to one of Elle Bee’s bars…in total we walked well over an hour.  that’s gotta count for something right?  I am sure it did cause i was sore in places i never knew existed.


I still got a bit of a work out in….and still had an amazing evening.  I rewarded myself with a gin and diet, hung out at the bar for a bit…and then headed home.  Awesome night!

the following day was my little man’s first birthday party!  the thought had crossed my mind that there would be a lot of food there that i shouldn’t have.  it wasn’t that much of a big deal this time around.  i knew what i was eating ahead of time…and i knew that there would be cake screaming my name!  But the awesome thing was…i had no desire to go off plan.

Anyways, out came these delicious looking cupcakes…and i am not gonna lie…i was tempted to have one.  I decided against it and let the little birthday man have my share.

Obviously he was enjoying his first taste of sugar 😉  It was worth it to me…to see him enjoy it so much.  So…it all worked out!  I even went home and worked out…


On Friday, on our way to the event….i of course had to stop in a shoe store.  i found these shoes that i had to have.  when i put them on they were so comfortable…and they fit purrfectly.

i loved them and wanted them to be mine.

i was their Cinderella.

But, i am a rational person…they were way outta my budget, and so the answer was no.  not right now.

With great sadness, i put the shoes away…and carried on….cried a bit.  Look at what i left behind!!

Ugh!  but when i got home i was willing to sacrifice a bit of my vacation wardrobe to purchase these…and then realized that i had just received my tax return that would cover  the whole cost of these babies.  the shoes were mine!

So i went shopping….ALLLLLL DAY yesterday. Yup.  looking for those shoes.  i found the shoes but no one had my size.  no one.  I have pretty small feet…and it’s really hard to find shoes that fit me just right .  i wanted to kick my own ass for not picking them up when i saw them the other day…i was so….defeated.

We decided to try one other store…and no…they did not have them.  I was done.  I am not a shopper on a good day….5 hours later i just wanted to pull out my hair or hit someone!

And then i saw these…..

they were equally purrrfect!!!!  AND they had my size.  it was a sign.  they were mine.  No they were not the ones i originally fell in love with…but my god they are perdy.


all about compromise kids 😉

I am off to the mall tonight…a different mall…to see if by chance i can find the other ones…cause now i am just obsessed.  Besides….it’s bikini shopping night.  wish me luck!
