Hi, I'm Geri and my apt smells like cardboard


* Jason started his second year of optometry school this week (holla at my boy!).

* I've been under a pile of work (and launching a super rad giveaway! sign up if you haven't already!!!).

* We're in the middle of packing it up for a big move (into a luxurious two bedroom on the other side of the complex).

* And I channeled Lucille Ball for a minute to match how hair-brained my head is these days. It took the UPS man by surprise—when he looked up at my face he said, "Oh! I uhh, I like your head—hair—thing." Yes, yes, I'm feeling very I Love Lucy today. "Luuuucy, you got some 'splainin to do!!!" I nodded, Exactly. I signed the thing, and he walked off shouting phrases of that nature.

Later that day we took a time-out for a classy date at Target and In-n-Out (me and Jas, not the UPS man). 

I hate buns. Hate. I can just hear my mom say, "Now Ger, hate's a strong word..." I guess I've got some strong feelings when it comes to buns.
That's why I dig In-n-Out—they give me my burger wrapped up in crispy lettuce (which is also awesome in the calorie department!) and then they give us our fries well-done and super crunchy (which probably isn't so awesome in the calorie department).

And to top it off, that night our book-club went to The Help (so good) and Jason came along as an honorary member because he sometimes reads the books right along with me...... and this one might have been his fave. It's ok, one other fella came along so Jas didn't have to feel totally overwhelmed by the chatty ladies.

I LOVE the pictures of you and your husband. Beautiful light! Where did you get your headband? I'm curious to try that style out, but I'm a little scared to.

Aww, thanks ladies!

@Anna: It's a silky scarf from H&M, wrapped up and tied in an I Love Lucy bow on top. Go snag one and rock it OUT! ;)

Did you know I've been thinking, scratch that, more like dreaming, about In N Out for the last four days straight?? My husband and I even broke out our step by step plan of action for bringing In N Out to Hawaii... sadly though, we are still In N Out-less... Enjoy it ;) !!
