I'm kind of a big deal...

Playing dress up...

Saturday was my six year anniversary and I spent the better part of the weekend nursing a cold. The original plan was to go to a hoity-toity restaurant in Boston and then go dancing afterwards. Those plans immediately changed after the it began to snow and it continued for most of Saturday. We ended up seeing Underworld in 3-D which had lots of blood and gore (which of course my hubby loved). So while he was fist-pumping the air and growling loudly every time someone got speared through the chest, I was holding a Kleenex to my nose and trying not to drip, drip, drip, into my popcorn.

I also misplaced my ATM which I was entirely vexed about. I have Bank of America and, I don't know about you, but I absolutely hate having to go into the bank to talk to a real person. While frantically looking for my card, I did a run through of the convo I would most assuredly have with the banking rep.

Me: I lost my ATM and would like a new one

Them: Great! please have a seat. Would you like to try some of our stale peppermint candy?

Me: Just the card please

Them: I notice you own a home. Have you considered refinancing?

Me: My ATM card?

Them: Ah, yes! Let me just go in the back and retrieve the paperwork you'll need to sign. It takes only seconds to get but I like delaying the whole ATM replacement process to piss customers off. So what I'm really gonna do is stop by Ron's desk and describe in detail how I got trashed last night. I'll periodically send someone over to assure you that it will only be a "couple minutes more". My office is devoid of anything eye catching and distracting so you'll be forced to wait in misery--staring at those ubiquitous office posters that say things like "Courage", "Ambition", and "Perseverance"--wondering why the hell you bank here in the first place.

Me: Great, let's try to make it quick then shall we?

Luckily, I ended up finding my card thus avoiding that whole exchange. Izzy for the win!

One of the more productive things I did this weekend was clean my bedroom.  I hate cleaning but I love finding things I haven't worn in forever.  So needless to say, my attempt at cleaning quickly turned into a huge dress-up session.  I tried on a million things but only took pics of a few outfits.

I got this skirt from Talbot's and it is still online in their outlet section (although not in this color).  It is very comfortable and flowy...a must buy!

...a slight adjustment with the belt so the banding of the skirt wouldn't show....

Dress: F21

Does anyone remember when this dress came out on the Torrid site? It was straight bedlam! I've literally worn it once in the 3 years I've had it.  I put a belt on to give the illusion that it was a skirt and a top. I probably should've thrown on a necklace but I couldn't find one that suited my fancy.

Dress: Torrid

My serious pose. My hubby always tells me I look better when I smile.  I'm always like: "what are you trying to say, I look like crap all the other times???" Sheeeesh!

The action pose.  I always wonder what photographers tell models to get them in their "action" poses. Pretend you're a bird. Pretend you just learned that you won the lottery.  Pretend to do the stanky leg. Pretend you just saw a mouse. This pic is: pretend you have something in your hair and you're trying to get it out...oh yeah, smile while your doing it"

Jumpsuit: Torrid
Necklace: Free People
