I woke up yesterday morning completely dreading the task that lay ahead of me…a visit to the DMV (or MVA) whatever you call it, it means the same thing – a big fat pain in the tail. Even though my birthday was about a month ago, I just now have mustered up the time (…aka patience) to go switch my card. I shoved some breakfast in my face, bundled up in some sweet festive socks (it’s still the holiday season, for sure!) and leg warmers. Uggs? Totally necessary as well. And I’m super glad I did, because the line was literally out the door.
I got such good use out of my cozy scarf. Hopefully it distracted everyone from my face. It was totally 8am and I was totally rockin’ the naked face. 100% legal nudity right here, folks.
So, what did I do with my newly flipped I.D.? Put it to good use, of course! No one made a rule that said Tuesday nights weren’t just as awesome as Friday or Saturdays…
As the night went on, things got a little less classy and pictures got a little more messy. Walking around in a winter wonderland isn’t so enjoyable when you’re too worried about losing your winter coat to wear it out. But not to worry…there’s quite a few ways to keep warm:
1) Dancing: do I need to even explain? Not only is it great exercise, it’s like instant heat! Especially when there’s good looking men involved. Who cares if you’re sloppy, take note that everyone else is too. Just don’t pursue your dancing needs when you’re feeling sick, cause puking isn’t the most appealing move to bust. And your left shoe? Eh, you don’t need it anyway. Or your right one, for that matter.
2) Sneak your socks. Wear a warm, fuzzy pair under some boots – another necessity if you wanna stay warm. Don’t go out in some skanky heels – save those for the summer when you have a less likely chance of busting your face on a patch of ice and your toesies freezing off. It’s just not classy.
3) Deal with it. Being a poopy bitch and complaining when you go out isn’t gonna make the sun shine, nor is it gonna make the DJ turn up the heat. Just saying. Sometimes I’ve gotta give myself a swift slap in the face when I feel like complaining and realize that I should be thankful that a) I’m out with my friends, b) I’m finally able to be out with my friends after what felt like an eternity, c) I have clothes on my body and d) life is sweet.
To be honest, if I hadn’t looked at the calendar on my phone daily, I’d have no Earthly idea what day of the week it was. It doesn’t really phase me right now. Winter break, please never end.
I’m off to enjoy my dippity do-da (name that movie!)snack and get in a good workout.
What’s your favorite toasty accessory?
