Overheard at the airport bar: "What's your cheapest whiskey?... I'll take that and close out."

So that's how you choose to start your MDW?

Only in the Midwest.

Round 2.

Here we go again with bar prep. Sometimes I wonder how I will handle prepping for the bar and work again. Especially because stats just confirmed CA as the hardest bar in the nation. The state I just passed, IL, is #32. That's 31 spots I have to successfully jump. This is no small feat.

Add managing 3 externs and making sure everything goes smooth at work... I think my word of the summer is going to be BREATHE.

No matter how tough it will be, I know it is the right decision. I will have to take the bar if I ever want to get back to California. So... I might as well do it while all the info is fresher in my memory.

Wish me luck.

Music Monday: Pretty Lights.

Just a little sample from the new Pretty Lights. If you don't know of or have never seen Pretty Lights live, then you need to change that. Need to.

Swell Faves.

Just a few of my faves from the most recent Swell catalog.

What can I say? You can take the girl out of the surf shop but you can't take the surf shop out of the girl...

One Year.

Today marks the first anniversary of my moving 3/4 across the country to this place by myself.

It has been an amazing year. One in which I've learned so much about life and myself. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store... Hopefully it will be a shorter winter. (It was in the 40s this week.)

For $27.50. Done.

Copy Cat.

You know those people that are just effortlessly cool? The ones who always pull off a look, look put put together, are always ahead of the trend. One of my friends from high school is one of those people. Good news, she works in the fashion industry and is spreading the good style.

So, I mention this because I totally just copied/was inspired by her. Saw a pic of her wearing this and she shared the wealth with wear I could get it.

Ordered in less than 5 minutes flat. I think that's a record.

Talk about a pretty good Thursday... Sworn in and picked up a license... Happy Hour with an old sorority sister who also picked up the same license... Ending with homemade truffle parmesan popcorn, Grey's Anatomy, and a limited edition Stone that made it all the way to Chicago! Yes fuxking please.

When I'm excited to tell my friend I got a promotion and she responds with "I thought you were engaged"...

Seriously. This has happened to me more than once. When will you guys learn?
