HMT: Day 50

Ladies and Gentlemen, I got pulled over and it sucked.

So I get done work around midnight and begin the commute back home, 2 miles in I’m headed down a hill where the speed limit goes from 40 to 25 in a split second and BOOM hello blue lights.

Insert curse words here.

I pull over and a surprisingly handsome young cop walks up to my window asking me how I am and if I know why I have been pulled over.  “Uh I’m gonna be real honest sir, I’ve been better.”

Once we had established that yes, I was speeding but no, I did not realize how quickly the speed limit changed, he asked me for my license and registration… here is the kicker folks, I’m still rocking a Tennessee license and registration.  Two things that Mr. Handsome Cop was immediately thrown off by.  How thrown off you ask?

“You know what you keep the insurance, I’m just going to run this license and make sure we don’t have any warrants on our hands.”

You wanna know what I was thinking about in the 5 minutes it took to run my information through?

Do I have any warrants for my arrest? (No, I don’t)

Would I have a warrant if I forgot to return a book to the public library in Knoxville? (I will be returning that btw)

I wonder if Mr. Handsome Cop is married or engaged, he looks like he’d be settled down.

Do people actually flirt with cops when they get pulled over? How does that even start?

Jenna Marbles should make a video about getting pulled over.

Who thinks of that stuff???? Me. Only me.

Mr. Handsome Cop then returned to the window, handed me a written warning and just like that I wanted to hug him, scream and dance in the middle of the road… I refrained for obvious reasons. So thank you Mr. Handsome Cop, scouts honor I won’t do it again;)

My life is so exciting.

Anyway,  today I went to the mall in search of shorts at The Loft (got a pair that I will share with you guys tomorrow) but I also found this adorable dress that I instantly fell in love with from Francesca’s.  It was on sale and everything but as I’m currently rocking a body a few sizes bigger than I have been in the past I just didn’t feel comfortable enough in it to buy it.

Disclaimer:  I LOVE Francesca’s though, I think I own 10 dresses as well as a bunch of belts and jewelry so believe me when I say I  am so happy Burlington got one.  I will be back in and trying many more dresses on I think today was more mental than physical but I’ll let you guys be the judge of it!

I loved that this dress was green and lace first off but then I really came around to the blue underneath and just thought it was such a cool touch.  I loved that it could be dressed up or down and the cut was one that could be worn for so many different occasions.   Unfortunately the length was my biggest hang up, I’ve never been one to carry weight in my stomach (definitely not in my chest haha) but instead to my backside and thighs, so even if I try the next size up I often find that it adds fabric to my upper half  but not where I actually need it.

It doesn’t look terribly short but it sadly failed my sit down comfortably test… man did I love it though, just have to tell myself if it is meant to be it will happen;)

Trying on clothes all morning gave me a lot of motivation to hit the pavement and get a few miles in so that is what I did.

Day: 50

Distance: 2.5 Miles

Time: 30 minutes/ 12min/m

Temperature: 80’s and very humid

Injuries: None just hot as heck

Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

OOTD: Pink Pants and Potted Plants

I started reading blogs long before I ever decided I was cool enough to have one.  The jury is still out on if I am cool enough but someone who seems to have it all down is Kendi from www.kendieveryday.com/ today she had a post that I couldn’t help but want to wear.  Here is what I came up with!

Top: Old Navy

Jeans: Old Navy

Necklace: Forever 21

Shoes: Shoe Rack

Halfway through taking pictures of myself (sounds so silly) I realized there was a bunch of potted plants in the background and then laughed hysterically for how low budge I am. Oh well, just having fun:)

I hope everyone has a great week!
