Winter Remix - Day 30

This is me 'exiting' the Winter 30 for 30 Challenge! This final outfit was the only one I didn't plan. I kind of woke up and decided to try and throw on as many items as possible. I think it worked... but thank goodness the challenge is OVER! I am done done done. Whew!

Overall I am really happy with the results of this season's remix. I incorporated a lot more color than during the fall challenge that's for sure. I don't know what the future holds for triple gemini style blog but I'm sure I'll be game for the spring version of this style challenge.

I've been neglecting my baking blog www.sugarbutterbaby.com for the past couple of months so I'll be taking a break from here to catch up on those posts of sweet treats. Check it out!


Winter Remix - Day 29

Steve Urkel-ness

After my doctor's appointment last night, it seems like I was on the right track with my Sunday night cold and sinus cocktail. He ended up prescribing me three medications on top of a prescription nasal spray I already have to treat my sinusitis - which always sounds like a made-up disease name to me.

After my umpteenth trip to Duane Reade since I've started feeling sick, I picked up my new prescriptions and realized that I've spent about $100 on this cold. Makes me wonder... you’d have to be making as much as Charlie Sheen to support a drug habit… as it is, I’m having a hard time affording my head cold.
But then again, would he have had that drug problem without all that money?

I was told that the rest of my blog posts should be Charlie Sheen quotes, so here's the suggested quote of the day:
"It's perfect. It's awesome. Every day is just filled with just wins. All we do is put wins in the record books. We win so radically in our underwear before our first cup of coffee, it's scary."
I woke up late this morning so I can hardly put a win in the record book but at least I feel half human again.


Winter Remix - Day 28

I don't remember where this necklace is from but it's pretty cool
Last night I attended a DivaStrip dance class to learn a sassy Britney Spears routine to "I'm a Slave 4 U." It was really intense, my lower back hurts from all the body rolls and booty pops. Our male instructor was more 'diva' than the 30 girls in the class!

Like a moron, I decided it would be best to stand in the front of class... bad idea. The "head-diva" was directly off to my right and I had to keep contorting my body to see what he was doing. I looked like the little girl at the dance recital that's looking at what the girl next to her is doing instead of looking at the audience.

We got through half the song, using neckties as props, in a whirlwind hour long class. I'm glad we have 3 more hours to perfect it because I'm pretty much [definitely] lost. I got home and tried practicing it in the mirror and I was a mess, I could remember bits and pieces but not in the right order and there's a lot of gaps in my movements where I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing. Ugh, I thought dancing was supposed to be fun but every time he asked whether to go over the moves again or to move on to the next part the girl next to me kept screaming to learn more.

I left class feeling a bit stressed, a bit defeated and definitely having more respect for Brit.
Tonight I have an appointment with the doctor to finally [hopefully] get this persistent stuffy nose in order.


Winter Remix - Day 27

You know how people who work in offices are said to catch up on gossip around the water cooler? Well, at my office we gossip about the water cooler.

Is there any water in the cooler today?
Is the water cooler plugged in?
Does the water from the cooler taste like dirt?

Our office kitchen was 'remodeled' and the new cabinet design left no where for the water cooler to be plugged in. Everyone has been buzzing about the status of the cooler since last week. We've had to go to another floor to fill up our bottles or out in the hall to use the vending machine. Today, I am happy to report that the water cooler has been successfully plugged in and is fully functioning! Rejoice!

Let's hydrate!
