terribly moments

boots: mommed; skirt: panache; blouse: f21; cardigan: nordstrom
this is one of those outfits that i saw a picture of and thought, "oh. my. gosh. never wearing that again." it was one of those mornings where every single thing i owned looked horrid on me. does anyone else have those, or...just me? ok.

terribly uncomfortable moment: i was at the mall with kate earlier this week, and while i was being rung up i saw a figure behind me out of the corner of my eye. assuming it was kate, i spun around to jokingly snap, "don't look at my pin!" i said loudly, "don't look--" and realized it was not, in fact, my friend...but a man i did not know. i immediately turned back to the cashier, flushed bright right, and stammered, "sometimes...i do stupid things..." and then grabbed my receipt and jogged out of the gap.

terribly awesome moment: david played with and bathed joony while i napped the other night, and when i woke up i got to laugh and giggle with that tired-hyper boy and then nurse him to sleep. that's what i call a sweet evening. sometimes i feel so full of gratitude i think my heart might jump right out of my chest.

  1. terribly uncomfortable moment: hahahahahahahhhahaah omg dying. one time at sea world while gazing at a fish tank, i thought my mom was behind me and i leaned back to rest against her chest. only it wasn't my mom. it was a big, squishy woman who thought i was fainting and she screamed. sooooo embarr.

  2. hehe that's so funny about you thinking that person was your friend. I really like your green cardigan you are wearing, it is a great color on you!



oh, hey!

i think you're smart, pretty, and entitled to your own opinions.

i'd love it if the feeling was mutual!
