oxfords: ebay; skirt: DIY; sweater: shade via panache
i wore this to church on sunday...not today. ah well.
that was the day i walked out of my house in my slippers and didn't even realize it. these are the shoes i changed into...much better.
last night, i had a startling realization.
i was sitting in my bed with a loaf of garlic bread (not a slice, you guys...a loaf), a jarritos, and a cupcake with parks and rec playing on my laptop. i took a mental inventory of my current state and thought, "oh my gosh...this is what my life would be like without david." and it was not pretty. luckily he's coming home soon and my life will be filled with love and joy again. not that garlic bread doesn't bring joy, but. you know. not the same.

also...shpitty and michelleg were in the store just now and i went to demonstrate a sweet dance move....and ripped out the butt of my oldest, softest jeans. and just this morning i put them on and was all smug with myself, like "dang, i can't believe i still fit in jeans from high school!" um yeah, turns out i can't.


  1. Haha! I love this post! I would do the same exact thing if not for my hubby, or sometimes I do it anyway... I am partial to having my cake in bed! YUM!
