Upcoming Trip and Cute Days

So normally when I pack for a trip I don't put a whole lot of thought into my outfits. However, since launch of Have A Cute a Day I have put a little bit more thought into my outfits (love ya Anna and Kjrsten!). While I can't claim that have all been successes, there have been some good ones. And I was even featured on there site today! So last night I asked my roomie if she was checking a bag or just packing a carry on for our 4 day trip to New Orleans. She said if I checked my bag, she would check hers. I was ecstatic about this because it means I can take lots of clothes and told her I was going to look cute this whole weekend and plan out outfits, because well you never know. I could meet my future rock star husband this weekend ;) So hopefully I will have more success and have a little fun putting some outfits together too.

Oh so that "Sieze the Day" shirt in a size L I bought from J Crew? It fits! I am not even sure why I doubted it would fit or why I seem surprised that it fits, but it does! I plan to rock that this weekend too.

Eating has been great and I went to the gym last night. I am going to the gym again tonight too :)

Have a CUTE day!!!

A Whole Lot of Nothing

My life hasn't been incredibly exciting over the past few days. I did buy a lot of clothes this weekend! And I am starting to eat solid foods again! Yeah!

One exciting thing that happened is I went on a date last night. A third date to be exact. So you know, a third date is kind of a big deal. Especially since up until this point the previous two dates ended with a hug. So yesterday afternoon I was explaining the situation to my BFF in LA. Basically it's the third date and there should be some sort of lip action. Right? Throw in the fact that I just had dental surgery and it gets a little tricky. Also throw in the fact that I really wanted a good make out session and it is really tricky. She said something about needing to make eyes at him. Umm, do women consciously do this? The dinner location was decided on (my bar!) and we had a lovely 2.5 hour dinner of pizza and a beer (or 4). Let me tell you, diet friendly! There was left over pizza, which I made him take. And then I realized he was holding a box of pizza. It was going to be one of us and it was him. If there was going to be any sort of lip action this could get awkward. So we started walking towards my car and we stopped on the sidewalk and were saying goodbyes. He pulled out his phone and was looking at his schedule and said something about going out again when I got back from New Orleans. I am not really sure what else was said, but I could totally tell he was going in for the kiss while holding the pizza box and his phone. Oh yeah and we were on a pretty public street corner and there was a taxi driver within view. SO no makeout session for me, but a nice kiss good night.

Tonight I have a date with the gym.

Little Victories

Not much exciting to report. Mouth is still feeling weird, so no really solid foods for me. I had a dinner of ice cream on Friday (regular size better batter, no mix in). Last night dinner was french onion soup and cauliflower mashed potatoes. I am going to Red Robin for lunch today and I think I will get some fries, but there is no way I can get a burger...

The Matt Nathanson show last night was awesome and it made me realize (again) how much I like him.

Little Victories- Matt Nathanson

This time, I'll be sailing
No more bailing boats for me
I'll be out there on the sea
Just my confidence and me

And I'll be awful sometimes
Weakened to my knees
But I'll learn to get by
On little victories

This time, I'll have no fear
I'll be standing strong and tall
Turn my back towards them all

And I'll be awful sometimes
Weakened to my knees
And I'll learn to get by
On the little victories
And if the world decides to catch up with me
Still little victories

So what are your little victories???
