I didn't want to start a new week without a post and without publicly saying "thanks a lot" to some lovely ladies, so here I go! :p I leave you with a lot of random facts/pics and a bunch of warm thank-yous :D.
My good old and comfy flats need to be thrown away :/. We've walked a long path together and you will be remembered, haha. By the way, I realized they were this bad on our way to see a school counselor; hope he didn't noticed I looked like a bum.
Before talking to the school counselor, we had breakfast at the IHOP; it was my first experience there and I have to say the place did not disappoint :p. I had these red velvet pancakes along with some more food, but I'm embarrassed to show you the rest. I do eat like a pig. Way to go me! :/
I tried to balance unhealthy food with more decent edible stuff such as these giant mushrooms. I had never seen such huge (and delicious) Portobellos!
Portobello mushrooms + mozzarella cheese = a happy tummy!
These past couple of weeks, our mailbox was uber happy; I got a lot of unexpected packages! The first one is a cheer-up combo sent by the adorable Lissa. She had read I'd been having too many rainy days (this song perfectly depicts my mood then) and was thoughtful enough to send a lovely card and these amazing goodies! Which I have been wearing since day 1. Thank you so much, Lissa! :D
I also got the most adorable envelope, postcards and ephemera from a new pal and blogger, the always hilarious Laura Ly. That Paris vs. NY postcard is already on my mood board! :P And I can't wait to put all these into good use!
Last, but certainly not least, yesterday I had the pleasure to get this amazing package from Laura! When I realized this one came from The Netherlands, I knew it had to be from her. I was delighted to see the contour of a cat on the envelope and even more so after I discovered what she had sent!
It's a cat-related package! :P And she sent the huge hair clip I had posted about! Can hardly believe it.
Oh, in case you're wondering about the wedding party we went to on Saturday ... Well, I didn't get to wear my new green dress or orange shoes or pink lipstick . I got into one of my moods when I hate the way I look, nothing seems to fit right, so I just said "screw it!" and threw my boring funeral dress on me. Instead of wearing black pants, though, I wore my kitty tights. I had a good night and since there was an open bar for a couple of hours, I had more drinks than usual; some of which I'd have probably never ordered had they not been for free (knowingly: a Midori Sour and an Adios, Mother Fucker). When it comes to cocktails, I usually stick to classics; Bloody Marys, Dry Martinis, Mahattans and an occasional Negroni are my to-go drinks.
By the way, I'm glad I'm saving my green dress for a different occasion :). And thanks again for all the wonderful outfit you've given me! ;D
What else can I tell you? Oh, yes! The last Saturday in June, we had a 2 bucks a bag sale at the library and I got to fill 3 bags with books, magazines and stationery! This is probably just 10% of what I brought home.
Isn't that anniversary card with the 2 cats kissing a little disturbing??? See bottom left.
I also used a discount coupon at Michael's that day and bought myself some more scrapbooking paper and an old style label maker :p.
Right now, David is working on some new living room furniture we got today from Ikea and I'm planning to spend the rest of the day catching up with all of you and writing letters that I'll hopefully be sending tomorrow morning :). Monday, I'll have to get back to reality and make some serious decisions. But for now, I'll keep enjoying the rest of the day in LaLa Land, as my mother-in-law calls it, haha.
So, what have you all been up to?
Are you ready to start a new week?
May you have a great one! ;D
