 today was a little crazy.

it all started last night, when i read the bulk of the things they carried (time o'brien) in one sitting. that was kind of exhausting. then, TA-ing and classes this morning. i showed up to work in the store, mentally figuring out how many assignments needed doing and how many quizzes needed grading (a lot). instead, a massive shipment of jewelry took over...which was followed by a pretty large clothing shipment. yikes.

needless to say, i was grateful when kate stopped by the store and gave me a much-needed break. despite having so much to do, i think it's healthy to decompress for a few minutes with awesome company. oh, and david gave me a golden oreo!* i really feel ready to tackle everything being tossed my way today.

*by that i mean a vanilla-flavored oreo...not an oreo made of gold, which would also be cool.


  1. how can you not mention daves magic trick when he gave you the oreo?! it was mind blowing.

  2. oops, can i call him dave instead of david, is that allowed?

  3. haha you can TOTALLY call him dave! most people do, actually. and that magic trick was pretty sweet.

  4. i'm sorry for crazy days. but "the things they carried"? brutal reading, in my op. glad you got through it. you look great, if it's any consolation?

  5. I don't own a business, but I am student teaching, a teacher's assistant, and a research assistant and this kind of summed up my day too.

    Good luck with it all!

  6. LOVE this outfit. That navy cardigan is very classy. And I was reading your sidebar - I LOVE 'your ex lover is dead'! It's one of my all time favorites.

    Kristine. Or Polly.
