This should probably be a confessional post rather than a braggy post.
But I do like to brag way more than I like to confess.
Therefore, I am planning to use bragging to make this post more cohesive.
Brag #1. Today, I am wearing a mini skirt.
Not like a tight - I'm-too-sexy-for-my-skirt - mini skirt.
Just a cute short skirt.
As seen here.
I paid $2.60 for it.
The brag here is that I CAN wear a mini skirt.
AND get a good deal.
After a year and 4.5 months, I can finally wear a mini skirt.
Brag #2. I am in no way tempted by Peeps.
See how I cleverly disguised a complaint about how disgusting marshmallows are into a brag about my ability to withstand the call of the Peep?
I know, I know.
How could I NOT love Peeps?!
It's like a disappointment to the general public.
But I don't like Peeps and Techy doesn't like mushrooms.
I see this as balance.
Life is still worth living as long as we can balance one another this way, right?
Brag #3. I did mention that I ran 11 miles this weekend, right?
And I plan to run more over the next 2 weeks.
Crazy, I know.
I'm kind of a rock star like that.
Also. My water bottle is cooler than yours.
Brag #4. I totally scored swim apparel for the whole family for less than $50 this weekend.
Including, but not limited to 2 suits for me, 2 for the Little Man PLUS a board shirt (aren't little boy board shirts ADORABLE?), and a suit for Techy.
Yes. Grand total was something ridiculous like $48.00.
Thank you, Old Navy 60% off sale.
You made my summer so much easier.
Brag #5. I am the queen of cooking with Rotel Tomatoes.
They are cheap.
They add tons of pizzazz to any meal.
Not to mention color.
Nevermind the regret that hits the day after when my rear end is left feeling like I am sitting on a match.
But for those of you with stronger systems than mine, Rotel apparently has a hotter version.
For those who think the original isn't hot enough.
Don't believe me?
Brag #6. I have total self confidence.
After 30 years. I finally have acquired self confidence.
I.e., I am wearing a mini skirt without shaving my legs.
And in spite of all the bruises on my legs due to my clumsiness.
This could only mean 1 of 2 things.
Either I am totally lazy and didn't feel like reaching farther into my closet this morning.
Or I no longer rely on other peoples' opinions to determine my self worth.
Brag #7. I hit 500+ hits in one day right here on ye olde blogge.
That's new records for me.
And I got like 2% of that in comments (i.e. 10 comments in one day. Also new records....)
Look out, Pioneer Woman, here I come!
Brag # 8. Pillows for Breakfast nook - DONE!
Also, I think I finally finished the breakfast nook this weekend.
Unfortunately, all I have is this crappy cell phone picture of half of it to show you.
Act like you are as excited as I am.
Only 8 brags for you today....
Sorry for you who wanted more.
But most especially for those of you who could barely stomach the 8....
I'll stop for now.
In the words of the great, Tigger.
Ta Ta For Now!
