Monday, Monday... can't trust that day.
The best way for me to overcome things I'm NOT AT ALL looking forward to, like another Monday morning, is to focus on the things I AM looking forward to. That's really the essence of this whole blog, focus on the things that spark my fire in order to outweigh the wet blankets of this world, and it's been a smashing personal success! So here's what I'll be focusing my mind of this Monday:
#1 - Glee
Just over a week until the new season starts again. I hate to admit how much I've been following the off-season gossip, but it's about time for some new material for me to obsess over. And I'm really loving how many more people got into it over the summer, love camaraderie !
What Would Emma Pillsbury Wear? Speaking of Glee, I've subscribed to this blog that's dedicated to Emma's character's fashion. And I LOVE it. She's my new fashion inspiration. I just put a major hurting on the local Goodwill & stocked up on some fabulous Emma-inspired work clothes.
#3 - Grandparent Chic
Not only do a lot of Emma Pillsbury's outfits look very "Grandma Chic" herself (& therefore myself as I redirect my fall wardrobe) with the crisp collars over layers & bringing back brooches, but I've been digging this look for guys as well. I've seen so many great guy cardigans over the weekend, it makes me smile. And on my Goodwill binge I totally bought a sweater-chain-clip thingy. It's so great.
#4 - Pumpkin Flavors
It's that time of year, isn't it? Last night I had my first pumpkin beer of the season. Soon it will be coffees & eventually pies. Yum. I have a strained relationship with fall, I feel like it's just 1 big tease until the dreaded winter, but we're working through & I'm trying to embrace fall this year. Pumpkin, however, I've never needed any effort to embrace
# 5 - Running
I have to start running again... & soon. I over-schedule myself way too frequently but I'm finally going to make the time to start training again. Bright & early I'm going to take a trial run to see where I need to start training, then I'll laminate a schedule & it'll be official. This is how I function, I need to say things publicly & then laminate something for it to become a reality. It is now set in stone.
Just curious, what are you looking forward to right now?
