Owls

Green on the Scene

Despite the high temperatures throughout the day, I wore my new, shamrock green cardigan. I just want to experience fall so bad! I want “cold” weather! (Plus, I look awesome in green.)

Worn with a pair of tan trousers, I layered the cardigan over a crisp, white cami. The bag is by Bueno.

To sass up the very simple, work-appropriate outfit, I wore my brand new leopard print loafers by Bongo ($15).

I got owls on my chainz!

The cardigan, that I bought at Marshall’s for $19.99, is by Cable & Gauge.

After work, I traded the trousers for jeans before heading out to meet up with my favorite friends for an evening of delicious food and love.

[yester]Daily Threads :: Damn you, Michael’s.

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:

Simple. Classic.

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).

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2

Last night/This morning, we are went to see the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2!!!

I was supper excited and super depressed about this release. I read my first Harry Potter book when I was 12, I’ve grown up with Harry, Ron and Hermione! The last 12 years of my life were spent looking forward to the next book or movie. J.K. Rowling, please write prequel books! I guess I’m looking forward to the October launch of pottermore.com, but I want MORE!!!

We love any opportunity to dress up and since we’re all such HP Nerds, here’s what we’ve put together for tonight’s festivities.

Owl Jewelry!
 
Time-Turner Necklace
 

Back in the Saddle

I had all four wisdom teeth removed on Tuesday. It was quite the experience.

It took a while for me to feel the nitrous, and I panicked a little when I felt the surgeon messing with my arm. I believe I pleaded “Please, not yet, I’m not ready!” (I’m so afraid of needles!) He told me not to worry and waited a little bit longer, then I felt him messing with my arm again and I began to get panicked again, then I felt the pinch and he said “See? That was it.”…

… then I remember waking up. The dental assistant said “You’re dad is coming back now.”

“Follow the yellow brick wall!” was the next thing I heard from the hallway and I thought “That’s my dad.”

Dr. Karpinski and Liz at The Center for Specialized Dentistry were absolutely amazing!!! I would recommend them to absolutely everyone! Especially anyone who has a lot of anxiety about their dental work.  They made me feel so comfortable by telling me everything that as going to happen, followed up to the T (no surprises!), and both Dr. Karpinski and Liz were funny, warm people who made me feel completely safe and at ease. Their absolutely amazing care was so appreciated. I want to send them a thank you gift, or at the very least a card. It meant a lot.

I didn’t do much of anything after surgery on Tuesday except pick up my drugs and soft foods. BTW, all of a sudden I like Yogurt. First seafood and not yogurt, my tastes have been changing like crazy…

Wednesday I was still pretty puffy and kept myself pretty drugged up. I managed to organize and clean my bedroom, closet, dresser and vanity though.

Thursday I was feeling better but my sleep patterns were all messed up and I was still uncomfortable so I took my manager up on her offer to stay home again and layed around the house. Later in the afternoon, my mom took me and my two sisters shopping for dresses for the rehearsal and I got a whole bunch of lingerie as well. I love lingerie…my first job was a lingerie department sales girl at 15, I lied and said I was 16 (I was turning 16 in 2 months and they took a copy of my real ID, so they should have noticed….). I’ve always just loved pretty undies. But no pics of the beautiful bounty will be posted… that’s a little too porno for me.

So today was my first day back to work. I was still on the meds and so I made the decision to go casual for the day:

Comfy jeans and new Star Wars t-shirt. (I ♥ it!). Oh and check out my super cute, totally adorable owl tote… I’m beginning to feel like one of those old ladies who collects something weird with all my owl sh*t…. but they’re so cute!!!

I spotted these sunglasses on Fat-Aus.com and immediately clicked over to ASOS to buy them…. AND THEY ARE OUT OF STOCK!!!! I nearly cried.



I LOVE APPLES… it’s up their with my Owls obsession… in fact as a side note: I’m pretty much programed to be a fucking elementary school teacher with all my owl and apple shit… anyway, it’s inevitable. I just need to graduate college one day. (I want to be a Doctor of History, God Damn-it!)… excuse my self reflective tangent.

So I fell in love with these and I’ve been searching high and low ever since for a pair of Apple shaped sunglasses. If you have any tips let me know!

I haven’t had any soda since Monday! woo-hoo! Been working the abs. Drinking all water and vitamin waters. I’m pretty proud. I need to go really low calorie from here on out though. The wedding is exactly one week from today and I need to de-bloat a bit. Anyone know of any quick (even if temporary) ways to drops some inches?

Knowing I will need to be exceptionally picky with the cals this week and having lived off of soft foods for the last few days, I was making a hearty, comfort food dinner tonight.

Herb & Garlic Backed Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and green beans! I was delicious… and too filling. I think I’m good to diet. But damn, I waited long enough… I need to slim down just a tab in one week!

TIPS TIPS TIPS!!!  Please?
