Holaaaaa, how was your weekend? Mine was very productive with some fun friend time on Saturday night. Oh, and btw, the answer is yes, I know my intros suck. I’m going to apologize for this intro and all intros here on out because 99% of the time I just want to start with HI!!! Or, hello! Or, when I’m really feeling creative, Holaaaa! *Shakes head in shame*
ANYWAY, enough about my crappy intros, let’s talk about chickpeas. I’M KIDDING oh my gosh I wouldn’t do that to you guys. All I ever talk about are chickpeas. Snore-fest. Instead, let’s talk about J. Crew necklaces vs. Forever 21 necklaces. Yeah, I went there. That’s what’s on my mind so that’s what we’re talking about today. Necklaces, while you’re looking at these—might I say delicious—pics of chickpeas and quinoa salad aka the most filling salad ever.
Ok so back to the necklaces. So Friday night Miguel and I randomly decided to go out for drinks. Our original plan was to go grab some gelato, come home and watch TV. However, on our way back from getting the gelato we noticed all these young and hip 20-somethings sitting outside and enjoying drinks and we wondered if we should be doing the same. The deciding factor was YOLO, so we went home, got ready and then went out because we, too, try to act like young 20-somethings occasionally.
So we’re siting at the bar, chatting away, when all of the sudden my favorite J. Crew necklace falls off. It was the weirdest thing. It’s a chain necklace but it just broke! Almost as if someone came up behind me with the strongest pair of scissors and just cut it off of my neck. I know that’s not possible, but that’s what it was like. I just stared at the necklace as it sat in my lap—I was in complete shock. I then proceeded to throw a baby fit about it. MY FAVORITE J. CREW NECKLACE IS BROKEN 🙁 Oh, and might I add that this is the only J. Crew necklace I own because, well, they’re expensive.
So now what I’m wondering is if it’s even worth it to spend the extra bucks on a J. Crew necklace when I could get a very similar necklace at Forever 21 (or somewhere like Forever 21), that won’t break. I still don’t have the answer to this question, but I am seriously wondering. Oh, and in case you’re dying to know, I ended up tying a piece of thread around he necklace to hold it together to fix it #genius Hey, whatever works, right?
I’m sorry if this was the worst post you’ve ever read/I’ve ever written, but I just had to get that off my chest. Forgive me? Awesome. Now go home, make this chickpea salad, and impress your roommate/yourself with your cooking skills.Print
