Morning Musings (12th ed.)

How can half the people in my life tell me I'm bossy and the other half tell me I'm a pushover?

I've been saying for months (years?) that I was going to start waking up earlier. Every night I say, "Tomorrow is the day." And every morning, I snooze until 8am and end up late for work.

I used to wake up at 7:20am every morning. 

Do people still get perms?

I have tried to use SnapChat, really. I've downloaded and deleted it three times. Am I just too old to get it?

Why is there no way to manage multiple Instagram accounts yet?! I do not understand.

Practically everything I pin is some combination of chambray, boots and plaid scarves.

My main priorities in choosing a Halloween costume are (a) not having to wear heels, (b) being comfortable, (c) avoiding any type of crafting and (d) not spending a lot of money. This is limiting.

Get It Done

Last night, I went to yoga and did the dishes. This morning, I cleaned out my car (hello backseat! I've missed you!) and got an oil change. All day at work, I've been punching numbers and making lists.

Basically, current motto is 'get shit done.'

(Also, I do not own this mug, but if someone wanted to buy it for me that would be nice.)

Roots N' Blues N' BBQ 2014

This past weekend, I went to Roots N' Blues for the first time in years and was just totally floored with how awesome the festival was.

Not that I didn't expect that. I just hadn't been to it since it moved down to Stephens Lake. And in that time, had been to my fair share of outdoor festivals to compare. Plus, Avett Brothers was headlining and you know how I feel about Avett.
But still. There were the typical things – awesome food vendors, clean bathrooms (the cleanest I've ever been in), beer + koozie discount special, plenty of shaded areas, chair and aisle lines that festival goers actually respected – but more than that...

It felt local.
There were art installations by local creatives. Someone with the festival came on before each musical act to make announcements and thank the community members who made the weekend possible. Everyone was super friendly. You got the feeling that people would have come out for the festival regardless of who was playing.
And so when you add that with beer, biscuits, amazing weather and great music... it sort of makes for a perfect weekend.

Already counting down til next year. (I just wish someone would make them a better website.)
