Tips and Tricks Thursday


I use these tips and tricks to turn my frown upside down:

* get a new haircut

* go shopping

* have a girl’s outing

* workout

* read a book

* scrapbook



As I said yesterday, I have been moody lately. I had an amazing weekend in LA but started slamming doors and feeling depressed as soon as I walked in the apartment. So I have been trying to come up with stuff to get me out of this funk.



I got a new haircut a few weeks ago and I am not loving it. My bangs are not what I wanted. They are too long and I think they look exactly like they used to. The layers are too short and don’t look good when I use the hot rollers. Maybe I should force myself to shower earlier in the evening so I can blow dry and straighten the next day.



My wonderful friend S that is pregnant and has a messed up foot (I need to blog about that because it is information everyone needs to know) agreed to have a girl’s outing and go shopping with me. We need to get some presents for our friend T’s wedding shower and bachelorette party. I am in T’s wedding this summer and S was supposed to be matron of honor but little Ethan decided to show up and ruin everything! T is being an awesome bride. Our dresses were $20 and I’m so excited to wear it again and again after the wedding. She also just said wear whatever nice and cute black shoes you have. I am over my black shoes and wanted to get a new pair. Hubby killed that idea. I also wanted to get a few work spring update items and Hubby said you got a new shirt at Costco. Wahoo one $12 shirt!



I have this nagging you need to be active and stay healthy thing in the back of my head. But I hate it and I am completely lacking motivation. I am going to try and push past it and hopefully some of those feel good endorphins will show up.



I am reading the third book in the Thomas Kinkade Cape Light series, A Gathering Place . I am really enjoying it. Maybe I need to turn the tv off and read!



I think working on the wedding scrapbook might bring a smile to my face. I can’t exactly figure out what is slowing me down with it. Might be the planning of the book. I like to plan everything out ahead of time.



Looking forward to reading all your tips and tricks! Link up so we can all cheer up!
