"Finals beard"

As the end of the semester roles around for Elliott he becomes extremely lazy with his grooming habits. Don't get me wrong, he showers quite frequently but he fails to shave his face.

I say "Wow your beard is getting really...long"
He says "Do you want to run your hands through it?"
I say "Not really (gag...I mean I love you)"
He says "It's my finals beard, I will shave it after my last final"
I say "When is your last final?"
He says "In three weeks"

That is pretty much how the conversation went this weekend. I kept cracking homeless man jokes while he chased me around trying to rub his face on me.

Later that night I thought Elliott was shaving. This is what he came out looking like.

We had a good laugh. Then I made him swear he would atleast shave on our wedding day.

We'll see what happens.

I absolutely love the prints from this shop on Etsy.

Such colorful and playful prints that make me smile when I look at them!

Might have to purchase a few for my new apartment...

Jeans Jeans Jeans Jeans

So I got a really funny email from my future mother in law Kim. Her email sounded quite desperate that she was in search for the perfect jeans and asked me, Ariella, and Megan (Noah's fiancee) to accept the mission of helping her find jeans. First of all, my LIFE mission is to find the perfect jeans. It is also my life mission to find the perfect handbag (mom you know what I am talking about), but that is a different post for a different day.

So I quickly replied with some suggestions at Banana Republic because I had been there recently and was very pleasantly surprised with their selection. She immediately responded and brought up a very valid point. What shoes do I wear with these? Men, welcome to the world of women's clothing. Of course I replied within the minute saying "get a few pairs!". I have tried to explain this to Elliott since we started dating (5 and a half years ago!) that I must own multiple pairs for different days and different occasions.

For example: You must have jeans for fat days and skinny days. Sometimes you wake up and regret eating the last cookie (ok there were 3 left but who is counting??) so you need a little extra room in your jeans. Enter: loose fitting jeans. Then there are some days when you are like man did I lose 5 pounds in my sleep! Enter: skinny jeans.* Then there are some days (these are rare) when I feel tall (ok stop laughing). Enter: jeans that are WAY too long on me. More days include rainy days, "I wanna feel cute" days, going out jeans, "I feel ugly" days, "I just want to be comfy" days...the list could go on and on and on. Don't even get me started on the different washes...

So there is your daily dose of fashion tips from Josie...I continue to search for the perfect pair of jeans just like every woman out there.

*Elliott tells me I look the same on both fat and skinny days...I think he needs to get his eyes checked!

Ok so I admit it, I LOVE gossip...especially celebrity gossip. I love all the trashy gossip websites and magazines but I came across one story today that made me never want to read any of it ever again. In US Weekly there was an article about Jennifer Aniston. I really only like her because of Friends, but the rest of the world seems extremely fascinated with her even though nothing juicy every really happens to her. Anyways, this article focused on her different looks throughout the years. They bashed her for wearing the same pair of pants in 2009 as she did in 1999. Who cares?! I think that is pretty awesome of her to be able to wear pants that she had 10 years ago!! I wouldn't even dare save pants from 10 years ago let alone wear them (i won't even show a picture, I was 12!).

The next part of the article was a series of pictures where she is wearing scarves. They were like "how come Jennifer always wears scarves?!" I personally love scarves, what a great accessory!! Then they quote some "friend" of hers (probably someone who doesn't even know her) saying that Jen is a "germophobe" and she is "constantly afraid of catching a cold". How stupid!! Poor girl!!! She was probably just cold!!!!

Ok I am done ranting...blah tomorrow is Monday :(.
