You think I'm funny when I tell the punchline wrong

My bangs were driving me bonkers this morning. I have way too much of them. I slowly over time kept adding to them and now they are out of control. They need a trim and a little thinning out (my thinning out will still leave me with more bangs than many have on their head SO NO WORRIES DAVE H. Not my Dave) I pinned half them up once I got to work.

See all bangs.

I got very little sleep last night. And as I was saying on Twitter last night when I get little sleep I am a BEAR. I am socially awkward normally but more so when I am tired. I should learn to just smile and nod more then I am like this. I almost followed Dave to work today. He told me it wouldn't count for working though. Damn he is right. I ate terrible yesterday too. Meals are hard for me when he is in school. He really is the food maker in our house. I just don't make the effort to actually cook for myself and he usually calls me twice an evening to check what I have eaten. Last night he knew I didn't eat dinner and he stopped by McD to get a sundae. So he got me fries AND a sundae. Then told me not to tell Dave that was my dinner because he gets uptight about those kinds of things. So no sleep, fat and carbs and no protein. No wonder my joints hurt today.

I was self conscious posing so I just started dancing again.

Do you like my new boots though?



I got them about a month ago at Target and have been waiting impatiently to wear them. They are grey/green. No one in person can agree on a color but Target sells them as "grey"

Sweater and boots Target 2010
Dress vintage gift.

You might be thinking "huh something looks out of place with you today" it is because I am wearing white. I don't wear white. I avoid it LIKE THE PLAGUE. If there is a stain to be had I get it. I am also just not a fan. I like cream colors like this though. But I stained it BEFORE I EVEN WORE IT. typical.

okay, this post has officially made me decide i am getting some boots! i love those boots on you, it is a really cute outfit overall. i am the type who bought a pair of boots but never felt comfortable wearing them with skirts/dresses so only wore them under my jeans. it's stupid because they look so cute on everyone else, so i'm determined to get some.

i also love that sweater.

I do love the boots! A lot!

I'm the same way with food and cooking. Its awful on nights when my husband isnt home. It helps to have a kid because there's always plenty of Easy Mac. Sometimes I'm even too lazy to make myself a pb&j. THAT is sad.

I just added a detail for ya.

hillary said...

Melissa part of the problem is neither mac and cheese or sandwiches are gluten free none of the convience foods are and the gf versions are not the same. Some nights I would really just love a fluffernutter.

GF bread is always frozen though and you have to defrost it then toast it and then it doesn't taste so good.

Those are fantastic boots, Hillary!

I just read your hair post below - very interesting (I also use Feria).

Trader Joe's has some good snax, but I am so on that train of, oh I had a few crackers/cheese/slim jims/leftover crust for dinner :) I came in today and had oatmeal and tea though (pats self on back for not getting what I really wanted...Wendy's sausage biscuit).
Love the hair!!! I know the bangs are annoying but they do look cute. Also, great pics. Okay now back to work with me! **head down on desk for a nap**

I put in two bobby pins in them in the bathroom a little while ago. I feel like a shaggy dog. Do the pins look silly? We both need to befriend a hairdresser.

Felicity said...

Target has really great shoes, I bought a pair of leather booties there a few weeks ago. Your boots are fab!

Kelly said...

That sucks that you didn't get much sleep!

I know you're not a huge fan of white, but I think the cream plus the blue of the dress REALLY shows off your hair color well.

It is a pretty sad sight when Erik isn't around for dinner. He usually cooks, but even when I cook I put in a lot more effort when he's there. When I'm home alone it's a lot cereal, takeout, or random handfuls of junk that I can find in the pantry.

Lisa said...

I don't like the boots, I love them. I avoid white too b/c I am very stain/spill prone.

If I'm not eating dinner with Andy I tend to just munch on whatever is around (cheese, crackers, cake . . .) so I can relate. Sorry that you didn't get much sleep either. I hate going to work on little to no sleep, I am definitely grouchy and snappy with people then.

hillary said...

Aw thanks peeps.

Remember how I said I'm a bear on no sleep? I made so many epic mistakes at work today!! At one point my boss kindly said "maybe you should try working on something else today" ha! Ooops.

I just ate a handful of sprinkles. Shhhhh don't tell dave. Protein smotein.

Yay you got the boots! The white sweater looks great with that dress. I loved the pic of the dancing outtake

In our house it's the boyfriend who is the cook, and if I'm on my own in an evening I don't like cooking just for myself. I'm also quite spoilt, because my boyfriend is a great cook, and everything I make tastes bland in comparison! So if I'm left on my own I tend to make pasta or have some eggs (fried eggs on toast, bolied eggs on toast, that kind of thing). But if I'm ambitious I make my 'signature' dish : puy lentils with tomatoes and feta cheese - heaven! I know you couldn't have the pasta or the egg/bread, but what about lentils or feta? Do you eat those things? If so, I could highly recommend 'my' puy lentil recipe! :)

Beck after ogling yours for what a year!

Clare said...

Wow. This may be my favorite outfit ever. I'm such a sucker for dresses and boots, and this is just perfect!

Brooke said...

These boots are awesome. Your outfits are always so inspiring! and ps: you have the most amazing cheekbones. What shade blush do you use? I'm pretty fair and I've decided my blush is too dark (it's mark. something). I love how yours looks - light pink with a hint of peach :)

hillary said...

Brooke thanks I believe right here I am wearing utterly game a limited edition MAC one from the feline collection. It's out now. The girl taught me a trick a few weeks ago I was putting blush on the front apple of my cheek and she said put kinda below it. Creates more definition.

I always wore pink blush and lately convinced I wanted peach. I also love I think it's kitten glow By mark
