Two Hippie Chic

A gathering of pretty things, lovely links and loads of fun brought to you by two hippies.

Oh, me?

Just planning the route we’ll take on our Europe trip this summer that we haven’t booked tickets for yet because Russell said we can’t until he signs his offer letter.

I always say “morning” instead of “good morning”. If it were a good morning I’d still be in bed instead of talking to people.

Thing I really appreciate:

When the guy who looks like a real live GI JOE finishes his WOD in HALF THE TIME it takes me to do mine, is still cheering me on through my finish and fist bumps me to tell me good job.

real talk does anyone ever just take a moment to appreciate the flawless combination that is cheese and tomatoes

hey guys, look!  it’s my two favorite things: mozz and tomatoes!  (and basil, do not forget the basil).

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

Finally used my heart rate monitor at crossfit. Don’t feel *quite* so bad about drinking a coke today.

imeanduh said: your jeep did that in college and you lived to tell the tale! remember how it “wouldn’t do it’ for the dealership?

HA, yes.  How could I forget?  My car would literally turn off as I was trying to speed up to merge onto the highway.  Or when I was rounding a corner with a bus behind me.  SO FUN!

Thankfully it hasn’t happened with this Jeep at all.  Also: that shit never got recalled on my old car so we (my dad) poured lots of money into fixing it. 

You guys. Our mail guy at work bought me this while he was on vacation. He is the nicest!
(I wish you could hear his deeeep southern drawl.  He calls me ma’am and I don’t even care because it’s so southern)

  • Me: Damn, I got a letter from Chrysler letting me know my Jeep has a recall...
  • Russell: Awesome!
  • Me: Awesome...?
  • Russell: Yeah! That means they fix your stuff for free!
  • Me: Uh it also means that in the meantime, while they "find the parts" and I wait for them to notify me, my car could apparently turn off while I'm driving...
  • Russell: Yeah, but they'll fix it. For FREE!

Nothing makes me more nervous than boarding my dogs.

We usually have family/friends watch them but we called in a lot of favors this summer so I could visit Russell.  So I figure we should board them for one of our upcoming long weekends — I made reservations at a place recommended by friends….and then looked on yelp and saw horrible reviews and panicked.  Now I’ve made a reservation with another place and am just crossing my fingers it looks as good in person as it does on the internet.  Jackson hasn’t been boarded in years and Bridger never has so this should be interesting.

You all weren’t kidding. What is this sorcery?!
