Question of the day: Where does a single 29-year old woman spend her money?
Answer: I don’t know but I can tell you where I spend mine in order of most monies spent:
3.) Cute Dresses
With that said, I just bought Marianne and I tickets to see Grouplove in November. SO EXCITED. This will be the 3rd time I have seen them in the last 4 months. I kinda like them 🙂 I can’t help what I like and I certainly won’t stop myself from having a good time.
If you haven’t seen them live and you like their music then what are you waiting for?! Here is a link to their performance on David Letterman. I love their energy and I totally have a weird girl boner for the lead singer.
Yesterday I was at the mall for my yearly eyeball exam and as I was walking around I noticed that every single person either:
A.) had a child/children with them
B.) Was dragging their boyfriend along for a shopping adventure that I am sure the only person enjoying was the woman
I have never felt so “Single White Female” in my entire life. Actually, there is nothing about me that is like the movie “Single White Female” other than the Census telling me I am single due to a void of a married/domesticated partner status and that I am indeed, Caucasian.
Anyway: As I was standing in JCPenney Optical department I was thinking to myself “Why the hell are the prices of these cheap frames so expensive?!?!!?” Did they seriously mark up the prices by $50-$100 just because I am standing in the optical department
Yes, they did.
Well JcPenney I will have you know, you can rip off those old people over there but not me. Oh nooooo you won’t.
So this is what I did. I brought in a pair of my knock off Rayban Wayfarer’s and told them to replace the lens and put in my prescription lens into the frames I already owned which I probably bought for $5 at some shack on the beach.
What are Rabyan Wayfarer’s, Deanna? I’m out of the loop.
The Wayfarer’s they were selling at JCPenney were $250!!! WHATTTTT?!?!?!? Those sunglasses are usually $125 if you don’t get fancy with it and skip out on the Polarized lens.
So instead of spending upwards to $150-$200 on a pair of shit house frames with my prescription lens put in them I spent $25 total.
Yup. $25 for my yearly eye exam and them putting in my special eyeball lens into my pair of glasses I already owned. If there is a “brand” downfall it’s that my glasses don’t say “Rayban” on them but so help me God if anyone comments on that I will be forced to emotionally abuse them with words.
After my personal “win” at the JCPenney I decided to go look for dresses for my friend’s upcoming wedding in November. This is what I found. I am happy with my purchase. It’s long sleeves (MY FAVORITE) and I am loving the new color blocking trend. It was also $40 even with no coupons/sale or anything. $40 for a dress?!?! I will take 100. Kiddingggggg.
So that was another win at JCPenney and then I decided to fail miserably by eating Tommies. I used to LOVE Tommies back when I was a teenager which makes perfect sense because it is food that tastes delicious and is horrible for you. Before yesterday I hadn’t eaten Tommies in about 10 years. I ordered a small chili and small fries. I sat there eating it thinking to myself
“OH DEAR GOD, THIS IS DELICIOUS….oh Dear God, WHAT AM I EATING?!?! This is chili? It doesn’t look like chili, it doesn’t even taste like “real” chili but it’s somehow good. Ew wait, no it’s not. Stop Deanna”
I texted Tommy (the guy I’m dating, not the owner of Tommies…..that would be weird if I was though) and this is our conversation re: what I was eating and how I ended this eating disaster:
His response might seem insensitive, back-handed or a weird way of telling me to stop eating but the texts that you don’t see was him saying that a bunch of people were having a grand ol’ time in the community pool/jacuzzi and that he was thinking if I was in Texas right now we would be joining them and having a good time too.
OR maybe he WAS being mean (he wasn’t) and because I don’t care either way I made a joke response by texting the rage face. No matter how anyone reads those texts it doesn’t really matter, I guess. As long as I found it funny is all that matters and he actually saved me from myself because I thought
“What you are eating is not even that good and you aren’t going to feel awesome after eating it, not to mention you WILL gain weight from this and it will make you mad considering how hard you worked to lose the weight you have already lost.”
Boom. In the trash it went. Thanks Tommy.
And now I will take a break to present you with a funny picture that I saw on Reddit a few days back:
The caption of this picture was something to the effect of the person saying that this dog got disqualified from a Doggy Halloween costume contest and that they felt he shouldn’t have been.
I agree completely.
Here’s another random thought.
I took this picture of a street a few blocks away from where I live. As I was taking the picture I thought to myself “How weird would it be to live on this street and have a less than superior house?” That’s a lot of pressure.
Alright, that’s it for now. I really do need to start writing more about food and losing/gaining weight etc. so I am going to try. I will probably fail because writing about this other stuff is much more entertaining for me. Also, the people reading my blog keep coming back so obviously none of you care whether or not I’m talking about losing weight or some random fun fact of the day. I don’t know. I need to though because I like losing weight due to the fact that I feel better about EVERYTHING when I feel better about my body.
Feel free to comment on my blog by the way about anything. Suggestions, thoughts, questions, comments about your own weight loss journey/struggles…anything! It’s nice to see comments from people who are reading because it gives it a more personal feel. I want to get to know everyone out there so don’t be shy!
Thanks for reading!
