skirt: American Apparel, flannel: Target, boots: Frye
i look like a crazy camping fairy. tutu and ruffles and...flannel and boots. (here's a classier version).
you know, i grew up with three sisters. and one mom. and one dad. that's 5 girls and one boy. that's quite the upset in balance between estrogen and testosterone. sorry, good old Dad. because of this mass army of women in my home, i never had to share a bathroom with a boy until JJ and i got married. i shared only with my sisters and dealt with the "WHO DIDN'T WRAP UP THEIR TAMPON APPLICATOR BEFORE THROWING IT AWAYYYY GHODDD!!!" and "WHO THE F USED MY SWEET PEA LOTION FROM BATH & BODY WORKS?!" once i started sharing a bathroom with a boy however, i found myself shouting things like "EWEWWWWW PICK UP YOUR WHISKER HAIRSSSSSS!" and "OH.MY.GOD. THAT IS YOUR PUBE ON THE WHITE BATHROOM RUG. YOUR PUBE! MY PUBE?! NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT. I DON'T HAVE 90-INCH-LONG PUBE HAIR, THAT'S ALL YOU, MAN!"
and. the. worst. THE WORST TWO THINGS. that can happen to a lady when she shares a bathroom with a
1. i sat on a droplet of pee-pee.
2. i fell into the toilet.
1. i got a 5:30 wake-up call from Gemmaroo and sloshed into the bathroom to pee before going in to get her. ajksdfkljadsfladjsf;jasdlfjkasd DAMMIT. MY LEFT BUTT CHEEK IS WET AND NOW I NEED A SHOWER. "JJ!!!!!!! YOU. PEED. ON. THE. SEAT." JJ: "OH NOOO! I'M SORRY. usually i clean it up, though." me: "'USUALLY' ISN'T GOING TO CUT IT, BUDDY!!!!"
2. Gemma was napping. it was a dark and shadowy day, and thus my bathroom was dark and shadowy. the bathroom is right next door to Gemma's room, so i tiptoed in and left the light off. and i sat. and my bum landed in the dirty, cold toilet water. and i silent screamed. and texted JJ "i just fell into the toilet and also i hate you."
and then this morning i saw something brilliant on Pinterest that my friend had pinned. and i was all PSHHHHH i'm not BUYING that decal. i'm sharpie-ing that shit on. right. now. and so i did. and i exchanged "me" with "it" because i don't like the thought of my toilet seat having an opinion. and that is the story of how i actually accomplished one of the ideas on my Pinterest board.
how's THAT for a reminder? i cannot wait until JJ sees it.
and also doesn't my bathroom look nice in sepia?
