oh, how equestrian.

Today, I felt like a grown up.  Well, kind of.  I moseyed on over to Target today along with what seemed to be every other person in town and picked up my first work tote.  While I have been trying to be more spending conscious, I consider it to be an investment in my future.  Since I'm taking a year off between undergrad and law school in an effort to keep my sanity, that means interviews!  Hopefully followed by offers.  Hopefully followed by a job and a steady paycheck.  Consider me hopeful.  Oh, I just can't wait for the future.  Here is le bag, which will be seeing many a successful interview.

Merona Fashion Lefay Tote

Onto today's outfit post.  Yes, I have navy, gray, and brown all in one outfit.  On top of that, I feel like I look like I'm about to go horseback riding, which no one in my family has ever had any luck with.  I have distinct memories of going out riding with my family and my father's horse improvised, wandering out into a field and stubbornly refusing to get back onto the trail. I think he actually tried negotiating with the four-legged friend.  Pretty amusing

Let's ring in 2011 with a blooper.

It's 2011, honeys!  I hope everyone ended 2010 with a bang.     
I personally went out with some of my best lady frans, had (more than) a few pints, and listened to some awesome live music.  One girl in particular was definitely feeling said live music.  Boy was she busting a move all by her lonesome in front of the stage.  I applaud her for her zest for life.   Then we walked around downtown, got a fire engine to toot their horn, gave fabulous directions to some out-of-towners only to see them head in a completely different direction, got random high-fives from some guy while his friend kept saying how he was new to America, and watched the fireworks at midnight from the top of a parking garage (and stared into peoples' swanky downtown lofts).  Interesting sequence of events, yes?

So today's outfit post is brought to you in video format purely by accident.  I noticed a few entirely awkward things about myself in the quick 8 seconds.  1.) I make weird noises when having my picture taken.  2.) I have a laugh similar to Kendra Wilkinson, which I am not too happy about. 3.) My greeting to the world was "wassup."  If I was ever in a situation when I addressed the entire global population, I truly hope I can find something a bit more eloquent to say rather than "wassup, world."  So, there you have it: me in all my awkward glory.  'Til next time, honeys!
