Dear Insides, Stop Exploding! Also Known As "What I'm Loving".

I find myself dying over certain items on the regular. 
I've started to realize that I have these problems with my insides that they like to get "over excited" on occasion. I think that sentence sounded a lot weirder than it was intended to sound. Regardless, I have these "over active sensory issues" or something. My first clue came when I started realizing that it is very impossible for my body to stay still. Sometimes I watch people sitting and I get jealous that their insides don't just force them to shimmy and shake 24/7. My second clue came when I started realizing that sometimes I see something and I literally feel as though I can not contain myself and if I don't spin in a circle or act like the salsa dancer emoticon that very second my insides will explode out of pure and utter joy. It's annoying to be quite honest with you. I have to have these "do not explode" talks while sitting at my desk pretty often. 
I think they make drugs for all of the above but you know what they say--pass on grass. 

So in honor of not smoking marijuana (?) I am sharing with you what makes me shimmy, shake, and salsa dance it right up in my natural state of mind. And hey yo, this isn't a sponsored post so just keep those thoughts in your pants. Or wherever one may keep those things. 

1. Straw-Ber-Ritas
It's like carbonated goodness in a can. Sweet (but not too sweet), refreshing, and it packs a nice little punch with an 8% alcohol volume. Not that any of you are drinking for that number in front of the percentage sign but I'm just saying. If you are going to have "a drink" you may as well have a drink ya know? 

2. Camo Pants
I never considered myself to be much of a  "camo chic" per say as I know NOTHING about hunting or fishing or woods or bug spray or really even roasting marshmallows. However, I dig it all of a sudden. It's like the perfect way to dress up (I mean down) a casual outfit to make it look like you tried and know a thing or two about fashion. At least that's what I am assuming it does. I just got these pants from Windsor and well, you may never see me from my waist down again. Perfection I tell you, freaking perfection. 

3. Carry on, Warrior
This book. Oh this book. It got me. So you all know how much I love Glennon over at Momastery right? Well this is her book and let's just say I loved every little bit of it. She made me a reader again you guys. I AM NOW OFFICIALLY A READER! You hear that book club members? I will now actually be reading the books we discuss every month! Miracles do happen. I have just one thing to say about this book-buy it. Her truth telling abilities are a gift. So is her ability to show up in my dreams and make me swear up and down that I now know her in real life but that's weird to admit so never mind. 

4. Lilly Pulitzer Wine Glasses
I'm not sure what I love more--the pretty colors and the design or the fact that they are plastic and I can never ever break them. I got these bad boys from Lifeguard Press and I pretty much decided that I need every item on that website now. Yes I meant need. I mean hello, these cell phone covers. Dying. 

5. Hammocks 
I sincerely don't think you will find me anywhere but here this summer. We just hung this baby up at the lake and I have already had to endure one too many "GET OUT OF THAT THING--THERE IS WORK TO BE DONE" yells. Duh. I am doing something laying there genius. We got this baby from Key West Hammocks and it is pretty much what Heaven will feel like I'm assuming. Make sure your Heaven is all that it should be and get a pillow to go with it. Just wait. Your life will be at least twenty times more awesome. Make that thirty. 

So there we have it. 
Five things you must go delight in immediately.

But tell me--what is one thing I should go discover?
And please, make it quick. I've got packing to do and any distractions (ie: comments with links of items to buy) would be much much appreciated.

  2. Those are the cutest wine glasses EVER! I saw the Straw-Ber-Ritas in the store the other day and took a picture because my mom's name is Rita. I need to actually try them!

  3. Haha we are thinking about getting a fold up hammock for our tiny city yard. I'm super excited. No better way to spend the summer!

    Have you seen those bug covers for hammocks? They look so strange! lol

  5. Haha, when I get excited I can't help but dance or make up stupid little songs. I just can't contain it. I have to move!

  6. I love what you are loving! I think you should go through your closet and sell what you don't want anymore at FabulessWardrobe.com (or you can just bag it up & send it to me & I'll sell it for you) ;) Just sayin'

  7. Haha I think that is a pretty good "disorder" to have! My mom got me Lily wine glasses for my birthday last year and I'm OBSESSED with them. Also hammocks may be my favorite things ever. Drinking out of the Lily glasses in the hammock would just about make my life. And in hopes of distracting you from your packing, I'm going to leave you with links to shoe porn. Have a great day!!

  8. I never - repeat - NEVER would have considered buying a Straw-ber-ita in the liquor store but you've convinced me. Probably because I thought it would be sickening sweet and you say it isn't. My Friday night (eh, probably Thursday) just got a lot more fun. Thanks!

  10. Yay for Carry On, Warrior! I got to meet Glennon at her book signing in San Fransisco. She is just as amazing in person. I would say Momastery's Love Wins shirt is another must have...for those days you just need to know you have an overwhelming support of love warriors standing behind you! Love, shelly!

  12. Part of my self-description on my blog/twitter/everywhere is "mover, shaker, wiggler." So....I feel ya. I'm not the sitting still type! Also, I now desperately need a hammock. Other also, your "pass on grass" comment makes me think of Saved By the Bell and "There's no hope with dope!"

    I can't think of a better way to store and contain my iPhone charger. And they even have them for iPads.

  17. i have the same mug (i am an E too!), and I feel silly that ever time I see your pictures with that darn cup I have to do a double take to see if I am looking at your pictures or mine. haha Because, you know, there is only one person in the world whose name starts with E!

  26. Love the straw-ber-itas almost as much as I love the new Mikes Hard Lemonade freezer bags - delicious. Like a grown up slurpee.

  28. I don't think I'd ever wear camo, but if I did I'd have to find those camo pants you have - super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am the same way about hunting, fishing, etc., but you are looking pretty cute in those pants so I may have to step out of my comfort zone and try it. I would love a hammock in our yard! So relaxing!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
