You guys!!!

Hi!!!

What’s up?

So I was on Facebook Sunday night, browsing around like a total creeper ( don’t pretend you don’t do it ) & I came across this super interesting list/article: 18 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Shy Introverted by: Brianna Wiest.

I know everyone on the whole planet reads those random FB articles & is like “OMG, OMG, OMG that’s SO me!!!”

But really, that is SO, so, so me.

Anyone with me? 

I wouldn’t say the whole article depicts my entire personality but there’s definitely no shortage of similarities, AKA number 16:

“You’re at your happiest in places like coffee shops and cafés: surrounded by people, but still closed off and keeping to yourself.”

I mean…!!! Hello?!

There’s def some I don’t relate to on the list, but it’s safe to say my Gemini-ish personality wants to sit home reading like a big-ass homebody and also wants to go out with my friends for cocktails & gab my life away.

Walking oxymoron, right? 

Mind you, I was reading this at 2 am when I couldn’t sleep so maybe I need to re-read the article. Guilty as charged: it was more of a skimmie-poo read. So ya, just a peak inside my 2 am life.

So, what are you? Extrovert? Introvert? Both? Neither? Do tell. 

Hope you all had a kick-ass, fantastically relaxing Labor Day. x Lauryn

Date Night…With a Stern Curfew

There’s nothing I enjoy more than a hot, sexy date night with my man.

Call us boring but typically we’re kind of grandparent-ish & go to dinner around 7 pm. Occasionally we’ll rebel on the weekend & go out later.

On this particular night we decided to go out earlier rather than later because we had Princess Pixy at home, waiting ever-so patiently ( but not really ).

Pixy ( our chihuahua ) is sort of like an overly strict mom who frantically waits up at night because her teenagers are constantly breaking their curfew.

And she means business.

If we leave for an hour, it’s as if we’ve left her in the desert for centuries deprived of food/water/air.

I mean…I can’t even run to the car for ( literally ) thirty seconds to the garage to grab my sunglasses without her howling with anxiety.

Let’s just say she has a case of separation anxiety.

Anyway, this was one of those nights where Goddess of the House AKA Parental Pixy was impatiently tapping her watch with her dewclaw. ( She’s serious, guys. She guards the door like she’s a British Foot Guard in a full fur, black cap uniform— I’d typically say this is creepy, but she’s been doing it for so long that I’m kinda used it ).

So.

On this date night, Michael & I had about an hour & half, give or take. We ate at Banker’s Hill ( a must-try if you’re in San Diego ) grabbed a little Pinot Gris, two summer peach/ricotta salads, & split the burger with skinny, truffle fries…then we sped home like Cruella de Vil to adhere to Pixy’s strict curfew.

Naturally she was anxiously waiting at the door, staring at us with her huge brown eyes…& clearly annoyed.

To appease her, we ended the date night in bed ( her in the middle ) watching “The Killing.”

Oh, & duh, the outfit!! LOL. I wore a black long maxi with a flannel tied around my waist to keep it casual. And the SHOES! But seriously the shoesssss. They’re kind of everything, right? Not only are these chic but they’re super comfy too. Plus there’s nothing like wearing a pop of leopard for a romantic night.

So does anyone else have a pet that instills a demanding curfew? Do tell.

Ok so I totally left my camera at home this weekend because I wanted to kick back with my friends!

But here’s a peak into my phone’s pics…hope you enjoy!

We drove up with my girlfriend, Jacqueline which was an interesting/hilarious car ride ( to say the least ). It also involved a lot of Kombucha, made-up/weird-ass games, & good music.

And then we enjoyed the sunshine, our hotel’s lemonade/vodka stand ( kinda genius ), & the overall vibe of Palm Springs.

The colors in Palm Springs are so dynamic. I know that sounds weird but everything is so bright & vintage looking. So much fun! I literally couldn’t get enough of the colors so it’s no surprise my phone’s pictures were full of color.

On a more serious note, my friend, Annie wrote a blog post that REALLY resonated today. You guys have to check it out— it’s such a fabulous reminder. Also, after hearing the very sad news about actor/activist Robin Williams, her post could not have come at a better time. I hope you all like the post as much as I did. It was refreshing to start the week with her message. Basically she kind of says everyone has their shit & just because someone’s life looks perfect on the Internet, doesn’t mean they don’t have issues.

Ok, on that note, I hope you all had a fabulous, amazing Monday!!
