Recap of my Week

I like to live in the past. Here’s a recap of my week. I’m feeling nostalgic already.


We went to the golf course on Monday. I read Sylvia Plath and managed to get lost while driving a golf cart.


I took my first selfies that same day. Y’all can officially call me a sellout.


The next day I tried to get a profile picture for my Instagram. It was a long laborious process.


On Thursday, we went thrifting.  I got 21 vhs tapes for $2.50! I got all of that fabric, the bias tape, and the Jane Fonda record for under 17 dollars. The Hawaii record cost me one whole dollar. I think I overpaid.


These two tapes were highlights for me. Dancin’ Grannies is just my speed; I’m glad I picked up the beginners tape.


This is Tiger, the Other Sister’s dog. He’s my best buddy. I snapped this while deciding what shoes to wear to the concert.

I went to a Lenny Kravitz concert. It was pretty killer. I love the way he moves!

This is me looking a hot sweaty mess after getting home from the concert. I’m still trying to get used to documenting my day to day life. It’s so weird.

On Friday, I babysat Lil’ Ruffneck while the Other Sister got her hair cut. The security system rang the whole time because it’s battery was low.  He telling me to turn it off, but sadly I didn’t know how. Earlier this week when I babysat him, he puked all over the place. I have a terrible track record.
Later, the Other Sister, the Photographer and I went to the mall. Here’s the Photographer eating Chinese food. I got some stuff from Claire’s. I’m really bad at documenting what I do.

 I painted my nails today. Neatness is obviously not my forte. Neither is taking pictures. I thought about being artsy and holding something, but the only thing I could find was a peanut butter jar.

It’s been a good week. Any week that that you make it out alive is a good one methinks. OH! History in the Making finally dropped the EP I’ve been waiting on since forever.

Oof! That modern music makes me long for something old. Here’s the Ronettes singing one of their many overlooked and underrated songs.

Alright, I guess I should go now (another song title… I wonder how long I can keep this up)

Hold Tight!

So yesterday I went golfing. I didn’t actually golf, but rather picked up The Bell Jar for like the third time. Each time I read it I enjoy it more than the last. Anyways, I took some photos in true blogger fashion (actually I had the Photographer take most of them for me).

 The Other Sister took this picture of me in the golf cart (before she made me drive). She and I joked that I should have a segment on my blog called ‘Things My Sister Made Me Do’. We’d take a picture of me reading a book at different locations that sister encouraged (made) me go to.

 I sent the Photographer off to take some photos while I sat and read in the golf cart. I thought this one of Lil’ Ruffneck and Jamie Starr was too cute.

IMG_0062.JPGHere is a self portrait the Photographer took.

 Isn’t the golf course gorgeous? I didn’t realize until I saw this picture. The Bell Jar is hard to put down.

 A little background: I can’t drive. I never learned and never cared to. Now that I’ve moved in with the Other Sister and her family, driving is a necessity. I’m learning, but frankly, I suck. My sister made me drive one of the carts with the Photographer in tow. I only got lost  once. A few branches may have gotten in my way, but we made it out alive. In this picture, I’m actually driving on the road.

 The Photographer snapped this candid of me watching the golf game progress.

 Another shot of Jamie Starr with Lil’ Ruffneck.

 The Photographer was excited to find paw prints in the sand.
 The Other Sister in her golf cart, staring pensively off into the distance (or watching her kid… whatever).

IMG_0140.JPGThere was a bunny rabbit at the very last hole. The Photographer got pretty close.

I had ‘Hold Tight’ stuck in my head the whole time. It was quite fitting considering my less than satisfactory driving skills. The song was written by Fats Waller and sang most famously by the Andrews Sisters.

That was longer than I expected, and I pity any person who didn’t skim through it.

Pip Pip Cheerio and a Froot Loop (am I getting any better at signing off? Is that even what it’s called?)
