When I asked the madre last night what time we were leaving for Illinois in the morning, she looked at me like I was the weirdest freak she had ever seen (which I probably am). She then informed me that we were leaving tomorrow--Saturday--instead of today--Friday. Surprised, I blurted out how I had already requested off for work on Friday and had no plans with my friends. The madre explained that today would be a "snow day" for me. Considering it has been 100+ degrees this week, I did not know why that jokester was making references to freezing rain. But the madre was quick to inform me that a snow day was just a day that you originally had something planned but then your schedule miraculously clears and you have a free day. That's a weird way to view a snow day, but hey, I'll take it!
Before I get into the details of my riveting "snow day" today, let me back up to yesterday. After a nice long run, I fueled up for the day ahead of me in the best way possible.
|Breakfast of champions.|
The boyfran left a little later, and the family got ready to go to an early birthday dinner for the madre. Her real birthday isn't until Sunday, but she wanted a birthday dinner here in TN (in addition to the dinner we'll go out for in Illinois on her actual birthday). Can't blame her for wanting two birthday dinners. She's just livin' it up!
|We clean up pretty well.|
|Flowy and flowery.|
We went to Marlin & Ray's for dinna (where the boyfran and I went for his birthday dinner) and I enjoyed some delish seafood, salad, and crab dip. With full bellies and lots of laughter, we headed back to the casa for the madre to open her presents. I got her two pairs of earrings and a necklace from Charming Charlie's. The little sis also got her a necklace. We obviously must think she has some sort of fascination with jewelery. Here she is with all her new bling:
Since we weren't leaving for Illinois in the morning, I had no need rush the packing process. So, instead, I saw Magic Mike with one of my friends, J, at midnight.
|Oh my word.|
Today's snow day consisted mostly of boringness and laziness. I slept til 11:30am (late for me), went to lunch and to see Ted with the boyfran and his friends, crafted, watch a ton of Say Yes to the Dress, and now I am in the process of packing. Here's what I wore out and about today:
Pretty lame snow day. But it ain't no thang. At least crafting counts as
|For the precious future little.|
I have literally been putting off packing all day. Now, there's something you should know about me...I hate packing. HATE.IT. I never know what clothes I should pack, and I always feel the need to try on every single potential outfit before deciding to pack it. Plus, I always overpack. And then I end up attempting
Purple shirt from American Eagle. High-waisted black shorts from Forever 21.
|Planning on wearing this for the 4th.|
|Wearing this to church.|
|Wearing this to the Cardinals game.|
White shorts from Banana Republic Outlet. Orange shirt from Forever 21 (not really red, but close enough). NEW monogram hat from etsy.com (just came today!!) Here's the hat up close!
|Not sure which shirt I like better so I'm packing both.|
|Planning on wearing this on the ride to Illinois.|
Think I overpacked for six days? Maybe. But at least I have options!
|So. Many. Clothes!|
Til next time,Shelby
