Getting Older Sucks

So the reason why I have been away for a while is because I'm fucking old and threw my back out.

Minus the farts (sometimes)

Last Monday I was at work and I went to pick up a butter knife or something stupid and I could not stand back up..... or sit down..... for a solid 10 minutes. I was hunched over like a 207-year-old lady. I was trying not to cry/cuss/panic while my two homegirls were trying to calm me down/not laugh/set up a wedding for 45 people.

Shit sucked.

AND I had to continue to try to cater that wedding all the while not being able to carry anything heavier than a vodka soda or salad plate. I was a real help.


So I was laid out for an entire week - laying prone on my living room floor with my feet up on a chair alternating between ice packs and heating pads. I watched way too many movies/biography channel/Mad Men episodes. My brain literally felt like mush.  

My view for almost 3 days straight.
At least Boyfriend was there to help ease his mama's pain!

Anyway - god bless massage therapists!!  I'm feeling better after being rubbed down by my massage therapist man. (I am not going to go into how awkward it SHOULD have felt that I was completely naked with a man in a little room that was NOT my husband, while he was rubbing my ass and sacrum because it felt SO GOOD to feel NORMAL again that it didn't even matter. He was so knowledgeable and so not-my-type that I didn't even care when he "probably"' saw my vajayjay. Whateves.)

So I'm back!!! And feeling about 85% better, but I'm not sure how much longer I can sit in this crappy computer chair. 

I did want to share with you what my awesome friend brought me during my laid-out-on-the-living-room-floor days.

She knows how to make a girl feel better!!
And here's another one of my girls on her vacation in CA!! She was at a salon where the owner sewed her own mustache pillows! 

Mustache Pillow Love
And then I got a little heads up about these new Toms from a reader (Thanks K.B.!) which I should probably own, no? (Remember when I blogged about my other Toms?  They should just be sending me free shit by now!! )

I couldn't screen grab them to put them on here so please click on the link and maybe do some holiday shopping? Remember: Toms gives a pair of shoes to a needy child with every pair of shoes bought! I love this idea. The shoes are super-de-dooper comfortable. Plus Tom is kinda hot.

*I'm a size 8 in case anyone is wondering! ;)

They would probably do this back a little good.

Rain Boots Rule!!!

It's been raining for like 3 days in a row here on this Hawaiian Island.  It's funny when people who live here complain about the rain.

I always think 3 things:

1.  You live in a tropical RAIN forest. It's going to f-ing rain. So pull your rain-soaked panties up and deal with it.
2.  You complain when it's too dry and this luscious land looks like South Dakota. Not very good for tourist-season. If people wanted to see South Dakota then they................... are crazy.
3.  At least it ain't snow.  And if it ain't snow then you have NOTHING to complain about in my book so shut yo face up.

I love the rain. I love to read in the rain, sleep in the rain, "snuggle" with Z in the rain, write in the rain, whistle in the rain. Blink in the rain. (You get the point.)

Especially since my mom scored me these beauties from Target!!

That's Right!!! My Missonis Bitches!!

You see - because Montana is in the middle of nowheresville and the style there is.... shall we say..... LIMITED.... my mom totally scored these when the whole "Missoni Target Shennanigans" were going on. Straight-up like 2 weeks after all the other Targets in the entire universe sold out of their Missoini items and the Target website crashed, my mom waltzes into our Target in G-funk and scores these! In a size women's 8 no-less!!  Ha!! But she sneakily told me they didn't have any but mailed them to me so when I opened my package these were in there! THE BEST!!

I wanted these because it's been awhile since I had a pair. I had this pair that I LOVED when we lived in Vermont on that farm. I hard-core rocked them for months at a time but for the past 5 years they have been MIA.


I LOVED these. Never mind I was 24 and had to jam my foot into the biggest big-kid size they made.  Never mind one of the straps broke because it wasn't made for a grown-ass adult to pull on. These made my 7 AM & 7 PM feedings of sheep, dogs, chickens and that mean ass rooster, Ozzie, (remember my chicken-coop saga?) bare-able.

They made me happy.

They made me EXTREMELY happy one day when I was walking into the post office.
I hear this little boy shouting, "Hey! Gurl!" I keep walking because I'm 24, obviously I am not a "gurl."
But he shouts again, "Hey!!! Gurrrrlllll!!"

I look over and he's holding his mom's hand. He's probably 5 and he points down with his other free hand at his green froggy boots and goes, "We got da' same boots!!" with so much excitement in his little voice. His mom starts laughing and I'm like, "Right on!" He nods like he totally gets it. 

Like we were Froggy Boot Soul Mates. 

Pretty Much 

I just hope the next woman I see rocking my same Missonis will have that much excitement in HER voice! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.......
