New Profile Pic πŸ™‚

Every now and then the light in my apartment is just perfect and boosts my happiness level +10. It was a sunny day with still some snow on the ground so apparently that works with my complexion.

This was from Thursday, a day when I had to go see my lawyer about divorce related stuff. In an effort to stay positive, I got up early and tried to look my best. This is probably my favorite top that I own right now.

Have a great weekend tumbls πŸ™‚ I plan to watch Carson Palmer and the Cardinals hopefully knock the Packers out of the playoffs. Palmer was the QB I drafted for fantasy football this year and he nearly got me the championship in my league.

I got my ears pierced!!

Okay, now that the big news is out of the way πŸ™‚ I also had a killer first week of 2016. I did declare this β€œThe Year of Ari,” and it is off to a great start. These pics are in reverse order because I wanted to lead with my shiny new ears πŸ˜‰

Tonight I got a light trim on my hair and had it styled straight just for fun. Then, I was off to the Piercing Pagota in the center aisle of a busy mall where the lovely Cindy pierced my ears πŸ™‚ She was great and had fun working with me I think. We took a few tries to get the marks in the right spots on my ears. I got the square princess cut piercing earrings (posts). I am so excited πŸ™‚

Moving onto yesterday, I had gone to Ikea (the day before yesterday) and purchased new artwork for my apartment. It feels so good to decorate with artwork that I feel a connection to πŸ™‚ I bought some lovely feminine prints that I framed. I am going to hang them this weekend. For now they are on the new desk I built for my daughter to use when she is here.

That night, I went to Payless and purchased back some boots I had actually returned. The clerk joked that I have a love/hate relationship with them and she sees it all the time – lol! She also told me she loved my makeup. I don’t care if Payless employees are trained to be that nice or not… l love the compliments πŸ™‚ After Payless, I went to Kohl’s and bought 3 sweaters that were an insane 70% off.

I have other new items that I used to decorate my apartment. I will have to show those in a new post this weekend though since I hit the 10 pic limit.

What a great week πŸ™‚ It helps a ton that I switched to Laser hair removal instead of electrolysis. With electrolysis I had to grow out the facial hair each week (yuck!), but with laser I need to keep it all as closely shaved as possible(woot!),Β  so now I don’t have to be in boy mode the first part of each week anymore – yay!

luv you all,
