painted toenails

anonymous asked:

Nyssara prompt! Sara wasn't really sure what she was expecting after being gone so long, but this certainly wasn't it.

“Uh,” Sara dropped her bag by the front door, “Hi.”

“Hey!” Laurel jumped up with a smile, excited to see her sister, “I didn’t know you were coming.

“Am I not invited to spa night?” Sara looked at the living room with candles lit everywhere and Nyssa in a bathrobe, painting her toenails.

Laurel put her arm around her sister, “Of course you are. I’ve been showing Nyssa what she’s been missing not having a normal adolescence.”

“We’re going to listen to a sink later,” Nyssa gestured to Sara to sit down, “I don’t know why, but it’ll be fun.”

“I said NSYNC,” Laurel whispered to her sister, “I may need back up.”

Sara smiled and took off her jacket, “I’l go find a CD player.”

today marks 28 weeks which means I’m officially in the third trimester

three months left, unfortunately they’re going to be three months of me being a giant whale person who can no longer paint her own toenails or see what she’s doing when shaving. I’m like 1000x clumsier than usual, which is bad because I was already an enormous klutz. also my hip feels like its going to fall off, and I think I’m going to be on a steady diet of tylenol for the foreseeable future. uninterrupted sleep feels like a far off dream, as does venturing away from a bathroom for more than an hour at a time. yay

but today I am going to go to target because I hear they have non-hideous maternity clothes and also probably go get my new car inspected and licensed and look for a new mattress maybe to help with the whole hip thing so wish me luck

one of my coworkers used to work at hollister and she was telling me abt their dress code the other day and it simultaneously sounds made up but isn’t surprising

some highlights:

  • you have to be tan but you can’t be TOO tan
  • your hair has to look presentable but it can’t look like you put time or effort into doing it
  • no noticeable makeup even tho the store is dark as hell
  • you have to order all your work clothes out of this catalogue and there are specific details abt how you have to wear them (flannels had to be paired with certain shirts, jeans had to be rolled twice and the size of the pant roll thing had to be the width of two fingers)
  • you could wear flip flops but only Their flip flops, not any inferior brand of flip flops
  • you couldn’t paint your nails. you could paint your toenails but they had to be red
  • periodically, some lady would come around the store and quiz them on the dress code
  • basically they were trying to go for an effortless west coast beach vibe but they couldn’t have possibly put more effort into achieving it
