new dress.


I dont have a picture of me in this dress but the models cute, so you'll survive. I kind of fell in love with the pattern, its a small floral but some of the 'flowers' are hearts. super cute detail. Im not a model in size by any means, at 5'4" 127 lbs, so i'll cinch the waist with a braided leather belt. also the dress hits my knees, i love that length on me. I was happy to get the last one.

I was also happy when i got to the register and it rang up at $20 instead of the $49.50.

killer deal.

hope everyone had a great weekend!

anxious


im anxious about a conversation that has to be had today. ive got a dinner date and a speeding heart rate. i also love rhyming, i apologize. twice in this case.

i crack myself up

you know those shirts.. "my grandparents went to the beach and all i got was this stupid shirt?"

while roaming 100 layer cake, and lovelybride I found myself paying too much attention to the guests gifts, do they have a special name? anyway, i thought to myself, as a 24 year old woman, im going to have the best wedding giveaways... something like... 'Rachael & Brad Pitt got married and all i got was this stupid totebag' hahah. so funny to me. i plan on letterpressing/screen printing my own paper wedding goods, i could screen a matching tote bag while at it.

ahhh, one day people, one day i will find myself happiness. I hope its wrapped in a big red bow so i dont look it by.

heres some lovely dress, that happen to be white, and happen to be on brides.

20/400


work attire!

i had a day, let me tell you. 'cause this is my blog and that is what i do.

first off, this picture was taken this morning before any of this happened.

I went to work, which wasn't awful but Mr. MTV(another intern) called me his secretary and that is not appreciated.

I ordered a book for class from powells and had it sent to the store instead of my apartment. apparently that means it takes twice as long!?! i live two blocks from the store, how does that take longer?!

I had an eye doctor appointment after work, which i am always nervous about. honestly, it was the best part of the day. Dr. New Eye Doctor, whom I have never met before, was so charming and good looking. I was sitting in the waiting room and he came out to greet me, shook my hand and then held on to help me up, which did not come off weird at all but instead super sweet. He made a joke about my purse looking like luggage. He told me I could take a seat in the electric chair. He told my I had beautiful blue eyes. he also said "this is going to sting a little..." *puts drops in my eyes* "...its battery acid." hahahaha oh my, best eye doctor joke ever. When he was looking at my eyes close up through the weird magnified glass thing, he told me to tell him immediately if i smelled smoke or saw a flame flicker. ha, as if the equipment was going to send me into flames. He had a sweet smile and then he told me I had 20/400 vision. 20/400!?! I am blind.
It broke my little heart, my eyes are as bad at my fathers.

My mother drove me to the bus stop downtown so I didnt have to sit in the rain, which was nice of her. Unfortunately I would have rather sat in the rain for a week all day instead of witness what happened next.

Theres 3 AAA trucks, a car and a police man stopped on the highway, on the exit we need. Theres no one directing traffic until my mom takes the exit, a man stops us. I can see something lying on the ground, something slightly moving. no blood though. People are standing around, staring. Then i see the police man jerk his arms super fast, pick up whats left of the dog and drag him across the highway, right in front of our car. Half a german shepard, who's was just put out of his misery by a police man, right there on the interstate. snapped his neck. im sorry to be graphic, but honestly you're getting the sugar coated story. my mom and i cover our eyes instantly, mother screams, "dont make us watch, let us drive pass, please dont do this in front of us." when they finally let us pass, we race off the exit and roll our windows down, fresh air keeps one from losing their lunch, right?

thanks life, day officially ruined.

tomorrow, please bring sunshine.
