Allergies

I think I have developed allergies 🙁 I haven’t been feeling well since Thursday. I’m all stuffed up, have a little bit of a sore throat and I can’t quit sneezing. And thinking back on this time last year, I felt this same way. I just though I was sick but now I’m thinking it was allergies. I always hear people complain about their allergies and I used think ‘so you have a runny nose, big deal’. Well, it is a big deal and it totally suck! I think karma gave me allergies for not being sympathetic to those with allergies. So to all those who suffer from allergies, I’m sorry!

And yes, I said allergies six (well, now seven) times in just a few sentences.

Pretty Little Look-a-Like

Does anyone watch Pretty Little Liars? It is one of my favorite shows. I watch it when I work out in the morning. I am so concentrated on the show that before I know it, my elliptical workout is done. Also, I love to see the clothes that the girls wear. And while Lucy Hales character doesn’t have my favorite style (she always looks cute just not my taste), Lucy Hales personal style is great.  I saw this picture of her and it was then that I decided I needed mint jeans so I could copy this outfit. You could wear any colored jeans with this look but I love the mix of the feminine pastel mint jeans with the tough black and studs for some edge. It was a little too warm for me to wear a jacket and booties but I still love the look.

Lodi Street Faire

Yesterday was the Lodi Street Faire and I set up a booth for my boutique, Daisy Rae. The street faire is about 15 blocks of vendors. The event lasts from 8am-4pm and we (the hubby & I) had to get there at 5:30am to set up. It was a great event and lots of people came downtown to shop the vendor booths. It was super windy, though. I had my tent all set up with the sides on and a cute little dressing room but the wind forced me to take that stuff down. But other than the wind, the weather was great and we had a fun time! 🙂
I’m still a little sleepy from yesterday so if some the spelling and grammar is wrong, that is why. Or it could be because I’m not the best speller to begin with… math is more my thing.

Grocery Shopping

What do you wear when you go grocery shopping? Me, I wear 5in. heels. But apparently not everybody does and apparently people think it’s weird if you do.

I was walking down the pasta aisle, looking at my grocery list, minding my own business when a lady stopped and asked me why I was wearing heels at the grocery store. She said my feet must be in so much pain. I think she thought I was crazy. I then explained to her my feet problems and told her that heels are actually the most comfortable shoes for my feet. I think she still thought I was a little bit crazy (I guess most women don’t consider heels to be their comfy shoes) but she also looked relieved that I really wasn’t torturing my feet by unnecessarily wearing heel to the grocery store. I think she was just concerned for my well being.
