Freedom… and some Foolishness on a Friday

Well… I woke up this morning so excited to write because of one MAJOR reason. On Thursday, I finally got my braces taken off and I have a brand new smile.

Me, in 2011, when I first got my braces in!

2011 Upgrade

Me yesterday, after getting back to work after having them removed! FREEDOM!

2013 Upgrade

My teeth honestly feel like PEARLS compared to when I had the braces on, not that I minded them too much. 😉 So, hubby decided that we should celebrate my getting the braces off tonight, for date night! So I thought we should go back to Matchbox in DC!

Welp, our little tropical friend Andrea may be changing those plans! We woke up to a pretty humid, and RAINY, Friday morning! No worries though – we can always hit up Matchbox another time and go somewhere closer where we won’t have to do too much walking in the rain .

But then, there was the foolishness…partly on my part, I suppose. Although, I just recently curled my hair and was pretty happy with my curls, I decided to still walk to work – in the rain – rather than driving. I mean, I did have an umbrella, so it should be fine. Right?? Well, by the time I got to work, this happened….


No more curls! 😦 Anyone with straight, or straightened hair, feels my pain I’m sure. Needless to say, I was itching for a caffeine fix for a much needed “Woosah” moment.

So of course, I went to load up the keurig with my favorite Hazelnut container, set it up, the little window stated that it was “BREWING”….annnndddd nothing. Not a peep, and no coffee!!

So dramatic, aren’t I?

Again I say, any coffee lovers would understand. WOOSAH!! But then, I remembered… it’s still Friday! And I still have a brand new smile, so I opted for some water and some yummy raspberry greek yogurt instead! I’m sure my teeth will thank me later! 😉

How has your Friday morning been going so far?

Any coffee lovers?

  1. 1. beautiful smile!!! and 2. ah omg that coffee machine meltdown would make me hold back the tears too 🙂 thats the worst, if i dont have my coffee in the morning just how i like it my whole day is thrown off. and 3. im actually really jealous of your hair, because i walked to work in the rain today too and when i arrived it was a frizzy mess. at least even though yours didnt hold the curl, it still looks sleek and gorgeous instead! have a wonderful weekend!

    • 1. Thanks!! 🙂 and 2. Yes, def. had a lack of caffeine meltdown – the struggle was real! I had to eventually get a little hot cocoa to help cure the caffeine fix – phew! 3. Thanks again, but trust me – just 10 more minutes outside and mine would’ve been a frizzy mess too. Lol! I guess I should be thankful the walk doesn’t take too long. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend as well!
