Today I worked earlier than usual. I’m a total night owl so it’s always weird waking up early and getting out of work before the sun has set. I was excited, though, because my plan had become going to Michael’s afterwards and buying new canvases.
It got even more exciting! I thought, “Hmm.. Maybe I should check their website to see what coupons are in their weekly ad.” So I did. I was beside myself when I spotted not only a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase but a coupon for 40% off (specifically) canvases and easels! “Whaaaaaaat?!” Yes. It was my lucky day.
My manager offered to let me out an hour early and I got even more excited because I was that much closer to my fresh, new, on sale, canvases and thusly, closer to feeding my creating addiction and I’ve been jonesin’ to paint for a few days now…
I kept to the interstate and passed my exit(s) and drove out to Michaels TO FIND THEY WERE CLOSED! … It’s Sunday… bullshit.
So I went next door to TJ Maxx to see if they had the Michael Kors watch I want. They didn’t. So I bought an adorable bright green dress. I can’t wait to wear it!
Anyway, I worked today (as noted above) so I don’t have anything interesting to post for my daily threads. I do however have my daily threads from Saturday and Friday, my last two days off. Here goes:

(Nana’s birthday. I love and miss you, Nana)
I received quite the surprise Friday when one of my old friends gave me a call, out of the blue, to have lunch. We hadn’t seen each other since spring semester 2005 and even then, we had not been close for about a year. She’s lived out of state for the last several years so the opportunity to hang out hasn’t even been there but we’ve kept in touch via facebook and texts. She was one of two girls who really made a huge difference in my life when I was having a tough time. It was really nice to be able to meet up and catch up with her. Here’s what I wore:
Jean Billabong Shorts. Light Blue and White striped button-up from Forever21. Various bracelets. A few rings. My long owl necklace (of course it’s facing the other way here…). Brown circular shades. and (My beloved) Michael Kors Hamilton Tote.
Later that evening, I shot some head shots for a friend of mine. Even later than evening, me and 3 of my friends “played Olympics” in the form of pool volleyball. GO TEAM USA!!!
Saturday, July 28, 2012
Saturday, I spent time watching the Olympics, editing the photos from the day before, watching classic Doctor Who (Baker, baby) and eating far too much pizza. I looked kind of adorable though:
Jean shorts. White tank top. Blue and White polka dots shear top by Lily White. (I love this top!). Various bracelets (the usual suspects mostly). Some rings (including my claddagh: heart out, boys). White cateye shades and the Hamilton Tote again (all my stuff was in it).
Thanks for reading! Love, GK
