I spent this morning out and about. Running errands before 9 a.m. is a glorious thing because the stores are so quiet and lines are virtually non-existent.
After a quick 5:15 a.m. workout at the gym (I did my Super Fast, Super Sweaty Circuit Workout), I headed home, ate a banana and walked Sadie around the neighborhood with Ryan before heading out for the morning.
My first stop of the day took me to Bagelicious, a local bagel shop, for a toasted pumpkin spice bagel topped with honey walnut cream cheese.
They take their cream cheese seriously and are quite generous with the creamy spread.
I also downed a cappuccino which left me feeling wired!
My friends Leah and Ricky are getting married in St. Petersburg this weekend, and I still needed to get a card for their big day, so after my bagel pit stop, I popped into WalMart since it’s open 24 hours a day. That place is about 10,000 times more pleasant before 9 a.m.
I got sucked into card reading but eventually found a winner before heading toward the checkout line.
And then I got a liiittle sidetracked.
As I was walking by the makeup section, the red lipstick caught my eye. I think red lipstick is so much fun and have always wanted to try it out, but I am rather intimidated by the bold color since my relationship with makeup is a little shaky.
There are so many fun makeup trends that I would love to try but I just don’t feel like I have the skill to pull them off without looking ridiculous.
Like the smoky eye or the winged eyeliner “cat eye” look.
My makeup skills are so limited, so whenever I try something new or more dramatic, I feel so goofy. (I need your help, Gretchen!)
Whenever I’ve had my makeup professionally done in the past, I’ve never really liked it and always felt like I looked overdone. (I didn’t even like my makeup on our wedding day and tried my best to “fix it” before walking down the aisle. Eh.) I’m a simpleton, I guess.
Questions of the Morning
