Little Notes

Do you utilize the notes app on your phone? I use mine constantly, especially when I do not have a pen and paper handy. I am a list maker. I THRIVE on lists. They get me going. So majority of my notes are lists. I also love that on the iPhone, you can invite other contacts and have collaborative notes… which I use for lists. Like Micaela (my sister) and I have a list of adventures we want to take in 2020, or we make packing lists together when we have events to go to.

The thing I am not great at is deleting my old notes. I was literally just scrolling through my notes looking for one in particular that I couldn’t find because I was too distracted by the smorgasbord of notes I have on this sucker. It is a mix of packing lists, Del Taco orders, and Instagram captions. LOOK AT THESE SCREENSHOTS!:

Packing list (from a concert in Sept… why on earth was a curling iron on there WHEN WE WERE DRY CAMPING?)

  • This sh*rt is bananas (an IG caption I was really excited about all because I bought a banana print shirt I have only worn once LOL)
  • MACHO BEEF BURRITO (a list that literally only had macho beef burrito, quesadilla, and soft taco because I was probably getting Del for the family and I apparently don’t have the memory capacity to remember those three items)
  • Britt’s Project X Research (this is slightly embarrassing but you know what?! This party will be off the chizzart!) ((okay I am cringing writing that but also I am here for it, and you better be there for it))
  • Feeling lucky?… (an IG caption I was real proud of FROM APRIL. Why is it still in there? Who knows)
  • Too much booty for one man to handle (I was trying to think of this song for so long, GOD KNOWS WHY, and then I remembered this line and had to write it down so I wouldn’t forget it again. OMG I am my father)
  • Lastly… (currently cringing even harder)… actual NOTES (aka pre written text messages)…. like my “break up” text to the last guy I was dating but we weren’t even official so is it really considered a break up? WHY DO I STILL HAVE THIS AWKWARD ASS NOTE ON MY PHONE?!

If someone scrolled through all of these my life would look like a mixture of Del Taco orders, caption ideas, wannabe emo quotes or thoughts to save for a rainy day, and break up texts / over thinking novel texts to boys who I am not really with. I have three pre-written messages to three different boys! WHO AM I? One was never going to allow himself to like me more than what we were. It was undeniably not a relationship, yet I was in denial that he actually liked me and that message was the straw that broke the camel’s back and brought the whole “ending” crashing down sooner than my delusional state was ready for. One was to a guy that was hinting hard he was into me and for reasons I cannot say, I had a message drafted just in case he didn’t understand the friend zone billboard I was throwing his way (thank God I never had to send that one), and the last was my “breakup text” because I was too much of a chicken to do it in person and also sought validation that a text was fine because we had only been dating about month and a half. MIND YOU let me add that his response, although agreeing that something was missing, ended with, “You are very pretty and have a great personality so I’m sure you’ll find a better match in no no time.” (insert clip from The Emperor’s New Groove): great-personality_emperors-new-grooveThe most basic response! But hey I took it and ran.

Anyways, I have no idea where this post is going. I was just scrolling through all the weird notes and was inspired by my strangeness LOL. Please tell me I am not alone in all of these secret messages stored on my tiny little device. If you have anything remotely similar please do share, this is a safe place ;).

Other than the fact I need to clean up my phone, nothing new to report here. Oh wait here is something, MY DAD TOLD ME YESTERDAY I SHOULD TRY ONLINE DATING. I am dead. This is where I end because he is probably afraid I am actually going to die alone. But more on that later.

Byeeeeee!

PS- like two days after he told me I should do online dating, I got spam mail from Silver Singles Online……. I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A SILVER FOX OMG LEAVE ME BE!

Mexico: Part 1

Well we have been back from Mexico for almost a week so I guess it is time to get back to business. We got back last Tuesday night and I have wanted to do nothing, I haven’t even unpacked (I know, so shameful)! I think I might be in a post vacation depression, or maybe our use of the word “Mexicoma” was totally wrong. Maybe you’re not in a Mexicoma when you are there, but when you come back! This trip was all we could talk about for the past year and a half. We were either complaining about having to pay for it or planning what we were going to do there, or mostly what we were going to wear. The trip came and went and it was AMAZING! I wish I could go back right now. I know I was being an inner snooty little brat and was thinking if I am going to spend all this money for a vacation then why are we going to Mexico, why not Jamaica or something? I apologize about that because this resort was so great. We stayed at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya (on the adult side Heaven) and I couldn’t believe how nice it was from the moment we walked in! I will go more into the hotel later. The trip was so fun and rather than shove everything into one, long and dragging blog post I am going to break it up into parts. So part 1:

Packing

On multiple occasions I have expressed my dislike for packing. This is my third apartment in three years so packing up your life obviously sucks like no other, but backing for a long trip really isn’t that enjoyable either, at least for me. I am totally one of those pack hours before I leave for a trip girls, but since this was a longer than a weekend trip in a different country I started early, and by early I mean I made a list. Please note, I am going to confide in you my level of OCD or as I’m told “anal-ness”, so please do not judge. I made a list of literally every item I was going to bring. Not just like “tops” or “accessories” but each and every article of clothing and each and every piece of jewelry. If you are curious, you can see my over the top list here: Mexico Packing List. It may sound crazy but packing ended up being super easy, even though it still took me hours. Once I had everything out and folded on my couch it took me awhile to figure out my system of how I wanted everything in my suitcase. I couldn’t figure out what I couldn’t figure out. Come to think of it, even now I do not know what my problem was. I must have been tired and overthinking everything.

I had assumed this already, but once I met up with everyone else I KNEW I had over packed. At least I wasn’t alone. My younger sister, bffff, and I were all sharing a room and the three of us were the ONLY ones who had a large suitcase and a carry on suitcase. What can I say, we like options! There were definitely quite a few outfits I didn’t even take out of my suitcase, but I got to wear all of the outfits I really wanted to, which you will see later on. My over packing is part of the reason I am avoiding unpacking, that means so much laundry! My suitcase was even almost too heavy. I ended up putting a pair of shoes, my boyfriend’s bluetooth speaker, a bottle of sunscreen, and a bottle of aloe in one of the other girl’s suitcases because she had so much extra room. I ended up weighing in at like 47 pounds, so close!

Our flight didn’t leave until 11:59pm so we had to just hang out at LAX for awhile. Fun fact, once we got to the resort and everyone went to their rooms, we realized a bunch of stuff got stolen from our checked bags at LAX: a GoPro, two bluetooth speakers (including m boyfriend’s), an expensive belt, perfume, and probably stuff we still haven’t realized. How awful that you have to pay to check your bags and they are not even safe. PUT ALL VALUABLES IN YOUR CARRY ON!

Anyways, we boarded, flew and slept (neck pillows are awesome!), and 5 hours later we landed in Mexico! I will leave you with that until part 2!

Packing tip: us bridesmaids had to make our flower crowns for the wedding and had to get them there safely. I ended up getting one of my wider but flatter shoe boxes and put all of my accessories, sung;asses, and my flower crown in it and packed it at the bottom of my suitcase and it worked perfectly! My flower crown looked perfect.

PS – My tee and shorts are from Target (sweater OLD), floppy hat is BP from Nordstrom, and my suit cases from the OC Swap-meet! (I got these two plus the medium size one for $100!)

Hi, I Miss You.

Well hello there! How’s it going? I truly apologize for my absence, I’ve let the blog get away from me these last few weeks. Life has gotten so busy, I have literally had something every weekend and there is so much in those weekends that I want to share! Being part of a wedding is no joke, there is so much that goes into it. I am finally past the bridal shower and the bachelorette party (both were successes) and now all we have is the wedding trip, but still in-between these two weeks before we leave I have another wedding and a baby shower! Awwww I just want to be lazy all day and blog. Life was so crazy that I even forgot about my own blogaversary, we are 3 now!

I just wanted to let you know that I am still here. I have been doing most of my work lately on my Instagram so if you don’t follow me you should so we can stay in touch! Follow @the.B.Law. I also wanted to tell you about what I want to tell you about to hold myself accountable (did that sentence even make sense?). I will tell you in the normal Brittany fashion, in list form!… My bffffff and I have list issues, like SERIOUS issues. We makes lists for everything, then read them to each other. We even put on our to do list to make ANOTHER to do list… #freaks

Anyways, things that I want to fill you in on:

  • Bridal Shower
  • Bachelorette Party
  • 3rd Blogaversary
  • Bible Study
  • Vacation Packing (dreading by the way)
  • Catch up on style!

I think that is it… okay bye! Miss you!

Type A is for Anal

So something I can admit about myself is that I am anal. I know this. I get it from my dad, he is anal too. I love, LOVE lists, agendas, notebooks, all of that stuff. When something isn’t straight, even, or perfectly centered I can’t handle it. You’d think with my love of organization and perfection I would have a perfect room… but I don’t. Anyways I have been all about making my own cute daily agendas for myself on the computer. I have even been personalizing them for a couple friends. I even made one called Blogspiration. It is for my friend’s birthday gift so if she reads this she may see it before I give it to her so if you do, pretend to be surprised. I want to share these with you now! Feel free to share my analness and print them out for yourselves! My sister did tell me I am the lovable type A at least.
