Thursday and Friday OH MY!

I ended up heading home early yesterday. The damn room wouldn't stop spinning and rocking. One of the lovely side effects of migraines. (Luckily I don't get it with every one just when I am lucky I guess!)

This is what I wore on Thursday



Whoops something isn't right in that photo. Lets try again.



I realized I hadn't put my "outfit shoes" on.

Shoes Nine West 2010
Necklace Banana Republic 2008

And this is what I am wearing today. Huh wrap dresses two days in a row. Can you say feeling uninventive?

See that matchy matchy? eh pin, necklace earrings? too much? Nah MORE CHERRIES I say.

Do you have any plans for the weekend?
Ours aren't set in stone. urg.

My other question for you is. Tell me about the last book you read and liked. Preferably something you read in past year. 

I read A Vintage Affair and it was a fun quick read. A tish sad but it was light enough to intrigue me. Mostly I seem to keep picking up horribly sad books and my mind can't handle them. Mostly because of my loss and cause I read before I go to sleep and if it gets me too worked up... Insomnia gets REAL bad.

i have read several books that i have liked, but if you're looking for something that is UN-sad, NON-sad, ANTI-sad, try "things my girlfriend and i have argued about" by mil millington. it has been several years since i have read it, but i remember it being the first (and only) book i have actually laughed right out loud when reading. maybe it is just his dry british sense of humor that i relate so well to, but i seriously love that book.

Hey, if wrap dresses work, they work, so wear them. And they do work for you! I especially love the color in that first one.

Um..how come you look so pissed off in that first picture though?

I know this is going to make me sound utterly ridiculous, but I haven't really read any books in the past year. My most recent favorites have been the Twilight books.

I feel like a tween.

I'm guessing from the "arg" with making plans that you don't particularly enjoy spontaneous weekends?

OOOH - I have 3 for you:

Good Harbor by Anita Diamant - a good summer read about female friendships

Time's Witness - Michael Malone - I love suspense novels

The Right Mistake - Walter Mosley - such a nice departure from the same ole same ole Easy Rawlins aka Devil in a Blue Dress genre.

I just started Anil's Ghost by Michael Ondaatje. So far so good!

I love Thursday's dress and Friday's shoes, they go so well with your hair color. I can't remember book titles, sorry. Have a good weekend! : )

Weeell, I think wrap dresses two days in a row is a-okay. They look phenomenal on you. And it's kind of fun to see how you styled the two a little bit differently on the two days!

I just finished The Merry Monarch's Wife by Jean Plaidy. Ahhhh, historical fiction. I'm reading The Devlin Diary right now, and I've enjoyed it so far. I will be re-reading Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in the next few days before I start teaching it with my seniors.

I will go grocery shopping and get paper for my bulletin board. I have to get my classroom ready by Tuesday afternoon. YIKES!

I love that turquoise one - I just got rid of a turquoise dress and I miss it. *sigh*

Ah - read the other post. I tend to look pissed when I'm not smiling too. So I make it a point to smile big and wide whenever I can. A lot of people tend to think I'm snobby but really, I'm just afraid people don't like me so I keep to myself and end up not smiling so I look angry. Can't help it!

You're right - why is it that men can be cool and elusive but women have to be bitchy and snotty?! (Maybe I should've posted this on the other blog post? Eh.)
