Sept 2? Step Back.

I feel like a brain dump is the best kind of post for today... the day before a holiday and a three day weekend.  Whoo hoo! 

- Call me old- fashioned, but I still go by the rule of "no white after Labor Day."  My work and play outfits this week have consisted of white pants, white skirts, and seersucker.  A little overkill on repetition, but you can't blame a girl for trying to get it all in one more time.

- Cue the hallejulah chorus: I am on a five day of detox from Diet Coke {and BOOZE too (!!) --though that detox will be over promptly at 5pm today}. While I do understand my beloved DC is nothing more than chemicals-in-a-can and arguably worse than the original, I l.o.v.e. a cold DC.. especially with a salty snack. I typically only drink one a day, but this week I've realllly just wanted to cleanse my body.  In case you are wondering, it is going okay... day three was miz but other than that, I've managed pretty well.

-Never ask me to save the world between 2 and 4 pm.  I am a morning person and fail prey to the worst afternoon slumps that includes glazed eyes, no energy, and embarassing productivity.  I really wish it was appropriate to leave the office from those hours and then come back for a few hours later refreshed and motivated.

-Lately, I've been so disappointed with the Living Social and Groupon deals in town but today, I bought the Living Social deal here for two hours of house cleaning.  I usually don't mind cleaning but for a special treat, I'll gladly take some time off and have someone else do it!

-I can't believe that summer is "over," yet, I'm also so excised about cozy fires, scarves, a slight chill in the air... and college football.... Go cocks!


  1. I have been wearing my white this week too!

  2. I've been all for the "no white after Labor day" my whole life. However, I am starting to reconsider. We do live in a city where 80 degrees at Halloween isn't really abnormal therefore, wearing white after Sept 5th shouldn't be either. I just hate to say goodbye to my favorite pants. We'll see!
