Thinking Out Loud: Just Call Me Cinderella

So…something MAGICAL happened!

I finally bought a new washer and dryer! It will be delivered at some point today…during a three-hour window…that was rattled off to me on a scratchy voicemail by a robot man. I know. I’m rolling my eyes as I type this. But yay! After it’s finally in place AND set up (which the robot man’s henchmen will do), I get to celebrate by singing and dancing and washing 928536 loads of laundry tonight!


You should know, that hamper is two and a half feet tall. :-/ 

After some dropping bank on those, I was in need of some retail therapy to lift my spirits. Wow, y’all are seriously gonna start thinking I’ve got a job on the side with all this #treatyoself stuff…and I’m not talking housecleaning if you get my drift. Cinder-fucking-rella? Lol. But no, seriously, I was on a mission: I got invited to a wedding this weekend so I’m in desperate need of a new dress and some glass slippers. Obviously, I headed to my favorite store in the entire kingdom world, TJ Maxx, thinking I’d find exactly what I needed…

TJ Maxx Goodies

Instead I came home with a pair of jeans (!!), two pairs of yoga pants, a workout tank, a magic wand, a purse, and some paintings for the bathroom…oh and a coffee mug that spoke to me while I was waiting to check out. I figured it was a sign. I mean, it’s not every day you find a personalized mug at TJ Maxx…

All that’s missing is a group of singing birds and  SQUIRRELS! 😉

But back to the dress sitch-E-ation…how could there be like NONE in the entire kingdom store?! I tried on the only one I could find but it looked like I was wearing a trash bag made of lavender-colored lace. I’m not exaggerating…much. I mean seriously? How do I get a fairy godmother up in here?! Do I have to click my heels? Wait…wrong story.

If I any energy left, I would’ve tried looking elsewhere, but after researching how to kill my evil stepmother a killer yoga session the night before AND shopping in boots (not to be confused with Puss in Boots!) for hours, I was spent.

Gym Selfie

Speaking of toning my body so I can kick some stepsister ass, can I just say how AMAZING it feels to be back at the gym? Or more specifically in the weight room? I’ve been spending most of my time scrubbing floors reading on the treadmill, but since finishing my last book, I quit looking lustfully at the weights and got my booty over there!

For the record princesses don’t sweat, we sparkle! 

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a dress to find…and a stepmother to kill…and some mice to sprinkle fairy dust on…the prince AWAITS! 😉


In the meantime, why don’t you bibbity bobbity boo yourself on over to Spoons to see all the magical linkups for this week’s Thinking Out Loud!

What is your favorite Walt Disney princess movie?
I have to say I’ve always had a soft spot for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast what with my mermaid hair and love of books!

Anyone seen the new Cinderella movie trailer yet?
March 13th! Let’s have a princess party! 😀

  1. I have 2 weddings coming up this year – one that I’m in and one that I’m attending…thanks for the reminder that I need to order my dress! 😉

  2. Ah I love Marshalls and that coffee mug is awesome. I love fun mug that makes me smile before 5am!

  3. You should know that I 100% blame you for my TJ Maxx addiction. Ass.

  4. Story of my life. I walk in for one thing and walk out with 20 -other- things. But that cup is epic. And I’d have to go with Belle as my favourite Disney princess. Actually, Beauty and the Beast is probably my favourite Disney movie of all time. I hope they end up putting out a real ppl version of that one as well now that they’ve got Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella down…

  5. I am actually way more excited about that new Cinderella movie than I should be!

  6. I don’t sparkle. I sweat. Like a dog, or a pig, or some barnyard animal equivalent.

    You need to get yourself a man to do the laundry.

  7. Wait, what??? There’s a new Cinderella movie coming out and nobody told me yet?? Then again, we’ll probably miss out for at least a few weeks longer over here so that might be why. How about you’re inviting me over,we go shopping and then have that princess party. Did I mention the cute homesewn princess dress I had as a child 😉 ?
    As an aside all that fairy talk is making me crave ice cream/frozen yogurt and you know why!
