Less-Than-Graceful Moments!

Sometimes Gracefully Monday

We did it! We decked the halls and jingle belled and oh Christmas tree-ed all weekend long while unpacking our Christmas decorations. Even strung a few strands of icicle lights in our apartment windows for an extra dose of holiday cheer. The Rat Pack crooned in the background while we rearranged the living room, packed away our pumpkin candles, and made sure that our tree lights from last year were still working {they werenโ€™t, by the way}. I realize weโ€™re a bit ahead of the Christmas decorating game, but graduate school reading is just so much more enjoyable beneath the twinkling lights of your red and gold Christmas tree. And who wouldn’t want to set out these cute ornament candles from Anthropologie as soon as possible?ย CAN I GET AN AMEN.

Today marks day one of our short work week! So letโ€™s start this week off with a few embarrassing, less-than-graceful moments, shall we? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Darrin and I wasted at least 30 minutes of our lives watching YouTube videos of tiny rodents eating tiny entrรฉes of tiny food. We thought to ourselves, Maybe we should get back to our researโ€”OH MY GOSH LOOK AT THE CHUBBY GERBILS. Priorities, folks.
  2. Buying a Taco Bell 12 box. For dinner. At 9pm. For two. And finishing that box like it was filled with a socially acceptable number of hard shell tacos for two.
  3. Darrin and I both confessed to each other our love for popping pimples over the weekend. We sure know how to keep the โ€œmagicโ€ of marriage alive. Hubba hubba.
  4. Literally jumped with fear after being ambushed by a Bath&Body Works employee asking if I needed help choosing which obnoxiously strong-smelling lotion I wanted to purchase.ย She justย appeared.ย Like she was living in the walls or something. I regained my composure; she just stared at me; awkwardness ensued.
  5. Weย reallyย need some Drain-O for our shower. This whole bath/showerย confusion is getting out of control. And slippery. And painful. FYI, quickly trying to grab your shower caddy in order to steady your balance mid-fall is not a wise decision.

How about you? Have any less-than-graceful moments of your own?Darebear and I will be heading to Iowaย this week for Thanksgiving. Bring on the big skies, beautiful sunsets, cozy mornings, and family card games. Hopefully the rest of your Monday feels a bit more like a Thursday with this short week! Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Such a pretty pretty sweater! Taco Bell is my favorite fast food… such a guilty pleasure so there’s no judgement coming from me!
