Mixed Up Shoes & Ears

Happy Friday!!!
Here's how I spend the beginning of my best day of the week!

My morning consisted of a some yogurt and grapes...

Reading up on some of my favorite bloggers...

Successfully straightening my entire head of hair because I left myself enough time to finish it all before I had to leave...winning!  (On some days I'm not able to completely finish this task... I talked about that here.)

And then feeling like a complete idiot.

On my walk to work I always have my iPod playing, and I generally get it all queued up and ready to go before I leave the house.  My ears get too cold if I don't have them in, and my hands get cold if I'm trying to mess with them once I'm already outside.  And plus, with all the ice that's everywhere I gotta pay attention to where I'm walking.

Yeah, Minnesota sucks.

If not, my clumsy feet would probably slip and I'd end up smacking my ass on the ice.  And that would hurt- so I try and avoid it if at all possible :)   

Well any-who, I'm back from that tangent.  So this morning I walked over to the front door, had my coat on and was just slipping on my boots & my ear buds.  Well, have you ever tried to slip on boots at the same time as you're trying to put ear buds in? 

Let. Me. Tell. You.

I know my right from my left, but doing those things at the same time totally screwed me up this morning.  I mentally struggled with it for a few minutes, and when I was done I had my right foot in my left boot and wasn't even able to put my ear buds in at all.
Hello, Idiot Ashley.
So there I stood, feeling like an idiot and still having to getting my boots on and ear buds in.  I did them one at a time this time, though.

When I got to work I e-mailed my dad about it.  His response?

"You are so special."

What can I say?  He loves me!

Happy Friday- and I hope you avoid any boot/iPod confusion!
 Remember, you too are so special.

It snowed in NC today and the ice is supposed to get crazy! No bueno :(

I can make you a button today, just e-mail me what size and I'll get back to you and we can work out the sponsorship!

And have a lovely weekend girl :)

Hahaha that story about the boots cracked me up. I can definitely sympathize! :) And what an icy sidewalk - I bet you can't wait until warmer weather!
