Five on Friday.

Five on Friday | That Girl Myra

What up, my little unicorns? Happy freakin’ Friday! I feel like this week has flown by, but that could very much have something to do with the fact that life has been b.u.s.y lately. There’s been a million things going on and since I’m still processing them all, I’m going to move right along until I’m ready to talk about it. Cool? Cool.

ONE.

Just as much as I love dark nail polish, I tend to also really like neutrals. The other day, I happened to see the gorgeous OPI Tiramisu for Two color on Instagram and y’all, I cannot find this freakin’ color ANYWHERE in Amsterdam 🤦🏻‍♀️

WHY, DEAR OPI, DO YOU FORSAKE ME?!

So like, anyone from the US want to send it to me instead? Haha. 

TWO.

*Embarrassing confession alert* I’ve been watching The Bachelor, and y’all, Arie is so freakin’ boring. Not to mention he uses the phrase “you know” in almost every single sentence or question he mutters…ever.

Also, does anyone else feel like Bekah M. just tries too freakin’ hard. I just kinda think she’s a bit much and trying to prove herself too hard since she’s only 22.

Yes, okay, I’ll stop the Bachelor rambling now.

THREE.

I haven’t been making much time for reading lately and I kinda hate that. I love a good book, but I feel like I’ve been picking some seriously crappy reads. I need to scour through y’alls recent Show Us Your Books links so I can find something worth devouring.

And if you just want to give me your recs without me searching through all the links, I’ll love you for that too!

FOUR.

I have lots to say about the recent shooting in Florida but I don’t have all the words to say them right now. However, my ability to understand people who still say that this issue revolves solely around mental illness absolutely baffles me. No, y’all, just no. There is so much more to the problem and one of those things is the fact that we have do not have the proper laws in place to prohibit guns getting into the wrong hands. We need stricter gun laws, the end. And I’m not even going to try to debate that point with people who are more worried about their right to own a gun than worry about the lives of these innocent souls who are being taken from our world too soon, because clearly, those people just don’t get it.

If you don’t know what to do in the wake of this tragedy, pick up your phone, call your Representatives and Senators, tell them what you want, and demand they take action. For those who lost their lives yesterday and for those who’ve lost their lives before in a senseless tragedy, I’ll be doing my part to call and demand change to the current policies.

FIVE.

I’ve had a few inquiries if I’ll share more about how this pregnancy is going and how it differs from LB’s! So, I’ll be working on posts every week which talk more about #momlife and #pregnancylife for those of y’all who want it.

There’s definitely lessons learned from Round 1 that I plan to do differently this time around, haha. And if you’re a multiple time mama, could ya please share your thoughts and info too?! I need all the information I can get to be prepared before Baby Bean (THANKS AUDREY FOR THE NICKNAME) joins us.

And that’s all for today, folks! Tell me about your week and catch me up!
