One busy week & One nautical wish

This week has been crazy. And every time I do this some Jimmy complains that I do not post enough on this blog.

So here’s a snazzy recap!

-I got to learn how to do a veil belly dance number. And had mad expertise on swishing around the veil, because I dramatically wrap myself up in blankets like a little hobo… on the daily.

-I ate fried chicken. Most fancily… might I add. While sporting my chicken eating necklace.

-I got fairy wings I ordered in the mail. Because I needed them to be a proper adult.

– I made a floral crown… just because I wanted to see if I could make one…. totally succeeded.

-I got called a hippy 3 times while not even wearing that floral crown… and I liked it. I do recycle and I am kind animals and the planet!

-I fell asleep with a cat in my arms instead of going to work on time today… he was just so comfy cozy.

-I did like 60% of the planning for my sister’s impending baby shower, most of it while in the shower.

-And I decided that I still wish I were a mermaid. Because I’d be swishing my blanket in the sea… while being mer-sparkly:

I just can’t shake that nautical feeling!

Have a great weekend everybody!

A Good Old Fashion Nautical Re-do

My mother told me a few weeks ago about this woman who has a super fun sounding job. She is a PROFESSIONAL MERMAID!
I asked myself how with all the imagination I have been blessed with… why did I never try to grow up to be a mermaid? And really… instead I chose architecture! I really, really blew it.

I’m putting in a formal request to my history. Small child Lauren, take all your doodles and dreams and craft a mermaid tail. It will change your life for the better. If you are a mermaid, no one will be awaiting your email during a regular 9-5. No one will stick you in a cubicle, no one will make you feel like you don’t belong. Instead you will get to be sparkly and entertain people, and you will get to see outside.

And I think you get to automatically meet Daryl Hannah… or at least get to eat dinner with Tom Hanks, and that would be like a 10,000% improvement in my quality of life.

And if you are a professional mermaid I think you get a briefcase made out of shells…
