Today I Am a Peppermint

10/23/12

My mother walked by as my husband was taking this picture and said “so on Tuesdays, you’re a peppermint,” and I laughed. Hence my silly face.

This was a comfy outfit, but it was too hot in the morning and not warm enough in the afternoon. And I ended up changing into shorts and sneakers for rehearsal anyways, so…yeah!

Also, today I had the sock bun, but I kept grabbing at it during rehearsal so I took it down. My kids started laughing because I looked exactly like Merida.

Rachel-Minnie Berrymouse

10/16/12
My students debated about whether I looked more like Minnie Mouse or Rachel Berry. At least they think it’s cute.

I didn’t wash my hair today. And I went out in public. THIS NEVER HAPPENS. I am a compulsive hair-washer. I keep reading things about how it’s bad for your hair, it strips it of natural oils, you need to use non-sulfate based shampoos…and I’ll go like half a day before being like “OH GOD I’M SO GROSS SOMEONE HAND ME THE HERBAL ESSENCES.” I only shampoo the top of my head and condition the rest, but still. I think this is the first time in my life that I’ve voluntarily left the house with my hair unwashed.

I did use dry shampoo, though. Which I’m still a little leery of. But it made me feel better, so okay!

Today was the first day that my adorable flock of actors ran through Act I of Narnia all the way through. It took nearly two hours, but for our first real run-through, it went really well! They’re all very inexperienced, but they all work really hard and I’m proud of them.

Also, this dress makes my boobs look way too big and there’s literally nothing I can do about that.

If I Only Had a Cardigan

It warmed up a lot more than I expected it to, so I shed the sweater pretty quickly. Later, one of my students said “Aw, Mrs. T, if you had a cardigan, you’d look just like Rachel Berry.”

I put the sweater back on. And my students thought I was adorable.

But yeah. Super cute fall outfit, right? Yeah, it was nearly 90 degrees. I DID NOT AGREE TO THIS, NASHVILLE. I DID NOT.

Also, I wore my Kurt necklace because I love Glee and I love Kurt and Kurt and Blaine broke up. BUT I REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT. But now I have to wait a month for a new episode…
