Long time, no see...

It has been exactly one week since I've posted, wow. I'm using my break between classes wisely, don't fret. I've been doing some reading, crocheting, relaxing, biking and working. Mostly biking to work. I have been keeping up with the "photo a day August break challenge," but I just haven't posted any of them (obviously, haha) Anyhoo, Have a great weekend everyone!

Fill in the Blanks Monday

1.   My go to outfit for a dress-up occasion like a wedding is a pretty neutral/pastel colored dress.
2.  This week has been...well since it is only Monday, easy. Last week wasn't too bad either. I finished the summer term.
3.  When it's dinnertime and I'm feeling lazy I'll usually eat Jimmy Johns, Chipotle or Pei Wei. Not gonna lie.
4.  My favorite pair of shoes is my hot pink and black Saucony running shoes. They're going on 8 years old and I will cry the day I have to throw them away.
5.  A random item that I own that is completely unnecessary, but that I could never part with is a ring that my mother gave me. It is unnecessary because we don't have a relationship, and like our relationship, the ring is broken in half. I just can't bring myself to throw away jewelry, especially gold and diamonds of any size! 
6.  My favorite person is my sister. She is good for a laugh, a cry, advice and always answers the phone.
7.  If I were going to write my own blank it would say what is your favorite photo of yourself? (Everyone would answer with that photo.)

Day 5: totally wearing pj's

So, today I spent quite a bit of time staring at the computer screen trying to figure out what the hell to write for my final Shakespeare paper. I did wear pj's for most of the day. Chris and I went out to dinner so of course I changed. It was the first meal we had together in a few days, so I wanted to look nice. when we got home I slipped back into sweats but left the top because I am lazy.

Day 4

Well, day 4 of August Break... I took my shirt off without taking a photo first. 2 reasons: 1) I was too tired by the time I got home from school to remember 2) It was a yellow polo and an olive green cami... too embarrassing-ly preppy to show the internet.

I wore this shirt combination for our last group performance for my Shakespeare class. I played several different characters in our mini production of Hamlet. As Bernardo I simply popped the collar. As Laertes I added a khaki blazer and I wore it just plain for my part as Polonius. When it came time to play Gertrude I removed the polo and wore just the cami with trashy leopard bra straps peaking out. I added a pearl necklace and a peacock fascinator for my hair. Our costumes were kinda "preppy" (think Clueless).

August break: day 3

Today was my first day at work, this was my top! I wore a brown cami under a short sleeve henley. The henley has light grey-yellow stripes.

Wooooo! August Break!

I decided last minute to participate in the August Break 2011! August really is kind of a break for me. Kind of. I only have a week of class at the beginning and a week at the end. The time in between is usually for cleaning the house and getting sloshed before noon. That's where the "Woooo!" part comes in haha. This August break I will be starting my spankin' new job! Well, only a little new. I used to work for this company before and I am STOKED to be back!

I think each day in August I will post a photo of the shirt I'm wearing. I'm not much of an "outfit post" fan, but this might be fun to open up my mind a little more. Stay tuned for the rest of the month!



Fill in the Blanks Monday

1.   My favorite color is Pink!
2.  My travel destination of choice is somewhere new. I'd love to explore England, mostly for the literary world's hot spots.
3.  My favorite  food is chocolatecheesesushi
4.  My happy place is anywhere it is warm, cozy and I have access to tea or a glass of wine. I guess the answer is home.
5.  My favorite saying is "Here kitty, kitty, kitty!" I love my cats. I say the same thing when I call for my ferrets, I did it even before I had the cats.
6.  My dirty little secret is that "I don't have a dirty little secret." Isn't the point of a secret not to tell? Why broadcast something like that over the internet? 
7.  Something friends might say about me is that I am such a recluse! I need not be afraid to hang out more.
