the power of Five Guys Burgers & Fries

You know those days where you can't explain it, things just suck and you get the blues? That's how I felt today, despite how cute I tried to dress to uplift my spirits (it usually works). To remedy said blues, I decided to sing them on my way home from school by listening to Marty Robbins, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, and some old Dwight Yoakam. I know those aren't the typical blues musicians that come to mind, but when a dude (or gal) is singing their heart out and/or whining, it's the blues baby. By the time I got home I knew what else I needed in my life to feel 100%: Five Guys and a beer. So that's exactly what Mikey and I did. We each got a fat daddy, double cheeseburger and a bag filled to the top with cajun fries, followed by a refreshing Yuengling + relaxing hookah when we got home.
I've shed my funk. Cue the happy photos.
Right pic = one of Mikey's I-dont-care-if-you're-ready-I'm-snapping-away photos
This shed. That pose. Those tights. Yeah, you're familiar. 
Dress: ModCloth (in 7 colors!)
Here's one of me picking my teeth with a pepper pack after I ate 45139109 calories. Hot.
So, friends, the next time life takes a big crap on your day, remember this: sometimes all you need is beef, grease, and beer(s).

  3. I'm vegetarian, but I do love Five Guys! Especially their french fries.;) Also, cute tights! I'm trying to venture into the colored/patterned tights world myself so I love seeing all the looks you put together!

    1. I hear Five Guys has a really great grilled cheese sandwich. Is that what you normally get? I need to try it since I'm a huge fan of grilled cheese sandi's especially after midnight. haha Ohhh and their fries are sooo amazingly tasty. I love the spicy ones. I can't even get regularly old fries there anymore.
      Don't be afraid of patterned or brightly colored tights! They're my fave and yeah I do get weird looks at school but oh well. I could care less. I mean it's not like I'm walking around selling crack, but yet everyone's eyes are like bulging out of their sockets by wearing bright pink tights. lol Anyway, check out Target for great tights at a good price.

    1. Thanks, Francesca! Do y'all have a Five Guys in Rome?? I somehow doubt it, but hey, Italy needs burgers, too! ;)

  5. Cute outfit, especially the dress and tights. Interesting that you dressed up to help your mood- if I feel rubbish I usually hide away in baggy clothes, which doesn't make me feel any better(read prettier, smarter etc).

    Hope the blues leave you soon. Sometimes bugers and beer do help! xx

    1. Thanks! I like dressing up as it is, but of course I still have my casual days. On days where I feel in a funk I DO NOT dress casual. Those are the days where I have to especially do myself up so I feel better and I really find that it works almost immediately. You know, look good feel good. I definitely recommend it next time you've got the blues. :)

  8. I'm glad you shook off the funk! Hey it's like that sometimes. When ever I'm in a funk I either drink a bottle of wine and dance to booty music....(don't judge me lol), go to sleep, or draw a picture. You look super cute! LOVE 5 guys!

    1. I love having wine when I'm in a funk, too! But booty music? I may have to try that! No judging here, hahaha I love picturing you down a bottle and then dance to "Shake ya ass" lmao! Thanks, love.

  9. Haha cute post & I'm glad you were able to shake off the blues! Whenever I get in that mood I lean towards some wholesome homemade food, lots of cuddly blankets, & happy movies.

    As for your outfit: I'm loving the tights! (they add the perfect amount of "I'm-cute-look-at-me!" ;)

    1. Mmm, too bad there's no wholesome homemade food around here. First of all, I don't like to cook and when I think of wholesome food I think of mashed potatoes, mac n' cheese and shepard's pie or something. Mmmm! Now you've got me craving! :) But yes, I agree with the cuddly blankets and happy movies; I'm such a sucker for those on normal days.
      haha @ your "look at me" comment. Cute. Thanks, Shawna!

  10. Oh crap, how did you eat a double!? That's hardcore yo! I do love their greasy burgers. Man I wish you guys lived closer so we could get burgers and beers together.

    1. Girl, I'm a fat kid in disguise. That is a fact. I've always been a big greasy eater. It'll probably kill me one day or I'll have diabetes by the time I'm 30.
      I really wish we lived closer, too. I'm itching to hang out with a fellow Yankee-Texan!
