In The Fashionista's Closet: The Light of Day

Yay! I made it outside! In the daytime!
My days consist of me going to school while it's dark outside and coming home when it's dark outside. And everyone acts as though this is normal. "Yeah, my first year teaching was like that too." But this is NOT normal, people. They should tell you these things before you sign on the dotted line.

"You will forfeit all semblance of your life for at least one year except the weekends where your only respite will be to engage in drinking alcoholic beverages and drunk texting."  

Just kidding. *But not really.*
But don't cry for me Argentina because I'm thinking of birthday plans that I hope will make up for my endless hours at work.

I feel like a vampire. And not a cool, True Blood one either....(Isn't that the one with the vampires?)

In the Fashionista's Closet: In Between Time

The mornings and evenings are getting cooler in D-Town but the days are in the 80s which is great when you're used to 100 degree temperatures. It brings about what I call "tweener" weather. It flummoxes me (hey, I'll use that for my students spelling test next week!)  as to shoe options though. I can always add a blazer to my summer-y outfits but shoes....hmmm I don't know. I need cute shoe options that are
Fall-ish that I can wear all day.  

But in the meantime, here's my last hurrah to summer in my on-sale, $10 H&M skirt. (It's really not my last hurrah, I am sure I'll wear it again soon, I love the longness of it.)

Sunglasses: Pitaya

This has been a long hard week for me, not sure that I care to share right now, still mulling things over... 

I'm just a really tired little chica....

"By the yard life is hard but by the inch, life's a cinch."

I just need a litle peace...and rest. Lots and lots of rest...

Adventures In the A: Part 5 *Is This the End?

Post Title refers to a New Edition song, they were my first concert .*shut up* 

Our time in ATL came to a close but we had to get a little more Georgia fun thrown in before we flew back!
Me with Cherie of Nappy Rutz
We went to brunch at Highland Bakery where we had the shrimp and grits, if you go please get the jalepeno focaccia bread that comes with it, it is delish!
Yall know I wanted to throw up the peace sign but I was trying to do right.... didn't work....

 dancing me....
I'm sorry if you come to my blog expecting model-esque poses, I try to do right.

We went to the Atlanta Arts Festival at Piedmont Park checked out the artists wares and saw THE most beautiful dude. I'm serious... He was, well...beautiful is the best word that I can use to describe him. He had a whole "I'm so unaffected by my beautiful self, starving artist, poet, just got out of jail" type vibe. I threw in the "just got out of jail" thing because that made me giggle...

WHY is this woman laughing? Because she knows that I am taking a picture of the beautiful dude! 

Don't leave me comments asking why didn't I talk to him, he was with a chick. Who was....ummmmm...let's just say she could have spruced herself up if she was gonna be hanging out with a beautiful dude. But she's probably real nice though.

THIS is what happens when you overpack and have to open up your bag at the airport after trying to stuff your recent purchases into an already overstuffed bag. Niiiiiiiccccceeeeeee, huh? 

And on top of that, there were storms in Dallas and my flight couldn't land so we had to fly to Houston to refuel and then fly back to Dallas and I got home at 1:15 am and get up at 5 am to go to work the next day. 

I survived Atlanta, it was interesting, fun and with a little adventure thrown in, just like me!
