Every time that I disappear from the blogosphere, it's not because I'm dead (obvio), but rather that I can't think of much to write, am living life, and possibly lurking on all the other blogs I read. It's what happens.

Here's what's happening as of late and whenever I get around to uploading pictures from my camera and iPhone, I will give you better posts, but for now, you'll have to deal with this lazy post.

  1. I went to Dallas to see my padre y madre dos and went to the Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. It was awesome. That will get its own post.
  2. I saw the space shuttle Discovery get a piggyback ride from a 747 with an F-18 escort over the White House. (It's restricted air space, so this was a BIG deal. Not that flying a space shuttle on the back of an airplane isn't a big deal, but you get the point.)
  3. I am on the hunt for a pair of gold heels for my friend's wedding in September. You might think that this task would be easy, but I'm like freakin' Goldilocks. Some heels are too tall, some are too short. Some gold is too trashy, some isn't gold enough. Some are formal enough, some are for the beach. I need to find the perfect fit. Literally and figuratively. Wish me luck.
  4. I cannot believe that we picked the one weekend all of the oncologists are going to be in Chicago for a bachelorette party. It was a little hairy to get a hotel room, much less four...which is now two, but let's not go there.
  5. I am really horrible at checking my PO Box. So much so that I have to set a reminder at the office to go check it. Which I inevitably ignore because I'm busy. Or it's cold out. Or too hot out. Or I just don't care enough.
  6. I've become a heated, frothed milk snob for my coffee. And it doesn't help that the office got a Nespresso. It's a sick addiction.
  7. I had a major minor freak out about getting grey hair this weekend. So, much luscious shade of chocolate hair is not my natural color. I'm more of a dirty blonde, I think. (I haven't let me hair get out growth of any measure for the last 15 years.) Well, in the atrocious lighting of my bathroom, it looked like I had a patch of grey hair coming in. Not a hair or two, but a patch. Yeah. Had to make sure that was the light playing tricks on me. And thank little baby Jesus, I just need a root touch-up.
Final thought, in case you're having a case of the Mondays, I direct you here. It's 13 Steps to Making It Through a Rough Day. Here's my favorite:

So What Wednesday

You know it's been busy slash I have writers block slash I'm too lazy when it's been weeks since my last post and I get back into the blogging with a well-timed link up with Shannon at Life After I "Dew" and say so what.

So WHAT if...

  • This is the first post in a while? Whatever. It's quick and to the point.
  • I whined a little this morning when I punctured my thumb with a bobby pin? That thing hurt and bled like a mother trucker. My bathroom looked like a murder scene.
  • I laughed so hard I cried and snorted this morning in the office? This is totally worth it when you're having a bad day. Click it. Trust me. You're welcome.
  • I've had the most random songs stuck in my head? Sanford & Son, Mr. Sandman, Somebody That I Used to Know. And that's just what ran through my head while writing this.
  • I haven't really blogged since nothing more than 140 characters has struck me? I mean, there are some things that I could probably expand upon, but whatever. Refer to my third slash above.
  • I am pissed I didn't get anything from Rue LaLa's Lilly boutique? Like, legit infuriated that I couldn't click fast enough. I mean, did they only have one of each? Seesh.
  • I cannot believe how much yoga affects my sleep patterns? Seriously, y'all. I have some amazing sleep whenever I practice yoga. When I don't, I toss and turn. Who knew?
  • I am now a coffee snob? A co-worker brought in a milk frother and my life is forever changed. Seriously. Just frothing the milk makes the coffee taste SO MUCH BETTER. Try it.
  • I am plotting my summer travels? It's never too early. So far, I have Chicago for a bachelorette, but I'm thinking Vegas needs me there. And maybe the Jersey Shore to witness that shit show first hand.
  • I am beyond excited to get to Dallas next week? The padre y madre dos are settled in and I can wear my cowboy boots all the time.
  • I am BEYOND beyond excited for the NASCAR race next Saturday? The padre y madre dos life a couple of miles from Texas Motor Speedway. Let's go racing!!!!
  • I'm a Denny Hamlin fan? Legit hottie and he does the Dougie. I think that'll be my opener, "Teach me how to Dougie."
  • I'm also a Brad Keselowski? He tweets. During races. A man after my own social media heart.
  • I am now needing to make a packing list for my Texas trip? Otherwise, packing is going to get out of control.
Go link up with Shannon and say your own SO WHAT!
