So many things floating around in my head right now. That's the problem with hosting an open mic on a Monday and coming home at midnight. How am I supposed to be ready for bed after listening to comics for the past three hours? I'm just not.
So let's recap life as of life.
Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
Liked it, didn't love it. However I would suggest giving it a read. It also made me want to hike the PCT. Have your read it? What did you think? My favorite part might have been the very last line of the book. Just let it be.
Pride. I absolutely loved this movie. If you're in the mood for a feel good story and enjoy tales of two unlikely groups of people coming together (which I happen to LOVE) you'll really like this one. I clapped at the end. I never clap at the end of movies.
Mad Men. Sunday's episode had me cringing for Joan. I would not have done well in the 70s with chauvinistic men. I don't do well in the 2015s with chauvinistic men.
Rocksbox. You pick out jewelry, they send it to you, then you keep what you want and send back what you don't.
And check out these "bold" little diamond studs. I'm a studs girl, always have been, always will be. Dangly earrings just aren't my cup of tea. But these little guys are for me. I am for sure keeping these. Use the code thedailytayxoxo and you can get a month free to play with jewelry as well.
Braids. OMG braids. I went into Goldplaited last week and had this done. What do we think? Yay? Nay? Say what you want, I had a fun time. I want to go back and have them try more braids on me...
Speaking of hair-
The half top knot is what middle school dreams are made of. I rocked this style from 1993-2002 and made no apologies for it. And I'm doing it again. I don't care if it doesn't fit my face, it fits my soul.
I was the kind of kid who found a hairstyle that looked good (I thought) and then demanded my mom create it for me every morning. My favorite was the "half up braid." Just combine the two above photos and that's basically what a "half up braid" was.
I was also the kind of kid who would then wear my hair "wavy" for one too many days after wearing it in a braid. I remember one time a classmate called me out and was like, "hey dirtball, you had your hair in braids three days ago and you're still riding the after effect. Take a shower." Kids are great.
What kind of kid were you? Tell me about it in the linkup I'm going to host this Thursday, April 9th. Then post your funny TBT photos on Instagram and use #thekindofkidwho so I can see all your weirdo baby pics and like them.
I'm mostly just proud that I figured out how to make this button and grab box. Now I just have to figure out how to create the linkup widget thing and we're good. So play along, it'll be fun.
I was the kind of kid who immediately ate my candy necklace but then left the dirty spit covered string on my neck all day... What can I say, I was raised by Wolfes.
