How is everyone’s June going so far? This has been a week of ups and down. Strange but familiar. Ever have one of those?
I was told what not to wear because I am old. ( not worth linking the actual article but a quick search will give you many other similar fluff pieces )
I say to that:
Give me my leopard print, converse sneakers, bright pink anything and oversized sunglasses. One thing you learn as you get older is to not give a shit what others think, especially about your wardrobe!
I became obsessed with the guilty verdict, weak sentencing and public outrage of former Stanford student turned rapist, Brock Tuner. His name should not even be mentioned again. I am so blown away by the words of this little dork and his elitist father. What is worth sharing is the letter written by the victim (warning: parts of it are graphic). WOW. Her words are powerful. I got emotional as a mother and got all “Girl Power” as a woman when I read this statement. Be the beacon of light, dear girl. Be the lighthouse.
A friend received a diagnosis, another leaving her husband, while another friend has an uphill battle of her own. Funny not but funny is that these three women are some of the strongest, toughest chicks I know. I have a gut feeling that they each will come out of their situations even more badass then ever. But still, I send them prayers and good vibes along the way.
I binge watched VEEP S1 & 2 in two days. Seasons 3 & 4 are not free on Prime yet so they will have to wait. I am not sure if I liked it enough to invest more time on it. Did anyone else see it? Should I keep watching? I have to say I am happy to see Anna Chlumsky in the cast. I have not seen her in anything since My Girl. I always liked her but did not follow her career. I would say she is one of my favorites on this show.
I was introduced to a new yogi to follow on YouTube – Lesley Fightmaster of Fightmaster Yoga. I did a 30 minute class that focused on a lot of hip opening and flexibility in the back. I am hooked. I am adding her into my weekend practice from here on out. That is when I have the most time to focus. During the week, I can add parts that I learn into my personal practice. I am feeling the burn in my sides and core two days later. It’s been a long time since I felt sore from my practice. This new find is just what I needed to move forward where I otherwise felt stuck.
And can we talk about this amazing weather? Even though we are still having crazy amounts of rain, the humidity has been low and the mornings are spring like cool. I AM IN HEAVEN! Considering the AC in my house is total crap, I will take the cool temps all summer long if that is possible. All my runner friends must be in their glory too! am I right?
Tonight, Dan and I have plans to hang out with our sister and her husband. We are going to see Rubix Cube , our favorite 80’s tribute band! They are so fun to watch with all their (seamless) costume changes and stage show. It is a fun night and I recommend you check them out if they come to your neck of the woods. Oh and did I mention some people dress up for the show? That’s right ladies and gentleman. People watching is part of the experience so grab out Members Only jacket, Wayfarers and lace gloves and entertain me!
It’s time for me to get ready for night so I gotta run! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Make memories people!
