Funky Town…

Hey y’all!!  I know I haven’t been around lately.  It seems like I have been down and out for the last two weeks or so.  If you follow me on snapchat (hillaryrhicks) or Instagram, you know I have moved us back in with my parents while I am looking for a house.  I was renting for years and then thought, why the hell am I giving some 20 year old trollop $1500 a month to live in a place that ultimately will never be mine.  Didn’t make any sense to me anymore so, instead of signing another lease, I put our stuff in storage and went back to my parents.

Now, don’t get my wrong my parents are A-maze-ing and I don’t know where I would be without their love and support.  But lets face it, going back ‘home’ in your 30s s horrible let alone with a child of your own.  This home buying process is taking much longer than I thought it would.  I know I made the right decision however, this period in the middle is really driving me insane.  Wanna hear something hysterical? There is a house across the street from my parents in foreclosure!!!  Such an amazing deal but I can see it now…..my mom peeking out the window “she’s home sonny!!!” It drives me even crazier when I think about it.  Needless to say, I have been in a little funk. See, it wasn’t until my late LATE 20’s that I began to except me for me….flaws and all!  Although I love myself like no other and I think I’m fabulous 😉, I still get these days where I am just in an absolute funk. Not even a weeks worth of General Hospital or Big Brother can help.  Can’t anyone else relate?  So this is where I have been the past few weeks.  I am slowly getting myself back to good.

On another note, I am sharing this look because I am weirdly obsessed with graphic tees and I just think this “going out tee” is a riot.  Being in my late 30’s, a mother to an 8 year old and not going out very much, when I do go out, this is my attire.  Graphic, jeans and some heels.  You just can’t go wrong with this look.  Its perfect for the movies and dinner or even a night out with your girlfriends.

This tee is from Sub Urban Riot which has become one of my favorite companies for their graphic tees and sweatshirts.  I have also been carrying this Rebecca Minkoff (HUGE sale up to 60% off)  bag lately for that pop of color.  I love it because its the perfect size for your phone, chapstick, ID and some ‘go to hell’ money.
