Let's talk about weird grooming habits again! Woo!

So, anyone else have a quasi-embarrassing grooming ritual you do to impress your significant other, even though he/she claims not to care about it?

I want soft hair. My hair now is…okay. It’s very fine but not particularly soft. I read somewhere that coconut oil treatments can help make hair softer, so I’ve started doing that.
Yes, that's my Allie coaster in the background. 
You’re supposed to use a showercap over your hair to keep the heat in. I end up looking like this:

Trust me, the picture is way cuter than real life.

Boyfriend CLAIMS not to care, but then conversations like this happen:

What kind of weird shit do you guys do to pretty yourselves up? And also, how can I make me hair softer? (No, this entire post wasn’t a thinly veiled attempt to get beauty advice out of my readers. Sorry, boy readers)

Boyfriend is Going on Another Work Trip.

 For those who have been around awhile, you may remember that Boyfriend went to New Orleans awhile back.  I think I handled it moderately well.

But now Boyfriend is going on another business trip – this time to sunny and warm California.

Yep, that’s right. He has a work thing in San Diego, and then he’s going to visit his friend in San Francisco.  He’ll be gone a whole week.

A whole motherfucking week.

I am not pleased. I imagine the week will go something like this:






I have to go to a Bridal Shower. I'm not excited. 


But anyway, I do hope Boyfriend has fun. Reasonable fun. Without any ladies.  Fun in his hotel room alone, facetiming with me.

Throwback Thursday Things I've Rediscovered as an Adult: Bathtumbs

...because I've recently rediscovered bathtubs again. Sitting in water is underrated and awesome.

Remember how I had that ass pain awhile back?

Well, I read that warm baths helped. So I’ve recently rediscovered the joys of bathtubs. It went something like this:

It was awesome. Until this part, approximately 85 minutes later:

I hate getting out.

What? I wrap my hair in a towel. NBD.

I don’t want to see my water bill this month.

Presidents Day Yay!

He had an emancipation to proclaim.
Apparently BoyfriendLincoln isn't a big fan of cuddling. Anyway I hope you all have a day off too! And if you need more Mayor Gia, check out last year's History of the Gettysburg Address!

Throwback Thursday: Valentine's Day Poem for Boyfriend

Yes, I'm reposting my Valentine's Day poems for last year. They're pretty good, and also Valentine's Day kind of snuck up on me this year and I didn't have time to create another awesome V-day post. Yay Throwback Thursday!

Boyfriend thinks valentine’s day is stupid. And I tend to agree. BUT, I still want to celebrate it and yes I know that’s crazy but I’m a girl and that’s how we roll. So I wrote this poem for Boyfriend. Sorry I’m not sorry it’s a little mushy.

I know I’m the world’s best girlfriend,
But Boyfriend, you’re pretty great too
So here’s all the reasons why
I’m so happy to date you.

You gave me internet when I had none
And let me steal all the good cable
I've grown into a Game of Thrones fan..
And you’re very handy around my place
Like when you fixed my table.

When we go out to dinner
You never make me pay

And you facetime with me
When I have nothing to say.

You eat what I bake on your carb day
No matter how bad it may taste

(Seriously, sometimes it's really bad
But you never let it waste.)

You tolerate my
Ridiculously rough feet

And you put up with me
When I regret what I eat.

Lastly, you rub my shoulders
When I’ve slept like a bug

And best of all
You know just how to hug!
