Tx Sized

I have had a serious case of P.M.S. lately, ugh like total “grunch-itis.”

I’m totally not rude or mean in real life…I promise.

Just lately, I don’t really feel like answering 10 million questions from people every day…it pesters me.

I’ll deal with it :)

Oh, and I cannot stand re-explaining myself to someone who wasn’t listening the first time I told them the story.

Ya know what I’m saying?

Okay.

It’s Monday.

We can love it.

Okay, no body really loves Monday…but I assure you that we can get behind this whole “I love Monday” campaign.

We should also be able to get behind the “summer + fall smash-bang recipe” thing.

So really, it’s like summer + fall in a soup.

I’m totally ready for my black leggings, cowboy boots, pea coat, falling red and orange leaves and the smell of sweet pumpkin pie cooling on the window sill.

Don’t judge me.

Do you know what thick, long hair looks like in 99.99999% humidity?

It’s Texas-sized …that’s all you need to know.
