People C'mon!

I have been wanting to wear this dress for awhile, I got it when I was in Chicago last month at a resale shop in Wicker Park for $6.00 because the collar was torn. I sewed it this morning and it looks great! I am pretty sure this dress was originally from H&M, I love how simple it is and it is long enough for work. I also love the pocket. I paired this with what Kyle calls "my booya-crazy tights". I swear that I also own other boots, but I just love these.

 Last night I came home and tried to make dinner. It was horrible. The goal was to make chicken tacos, but the refrigerator has all but two settings, "it might stay cold" and "the big freeze". Needless to say,the chicken was in a big frozen ball and in the words of Pooh "My tumbly is rumbly" and I could not wait. Instead I decided to use the veggie patties that I had on hand and that could be cooked from frozen, well I heated up the pan and oil way before I out the patties on and...SPLAT. I have like 5+ little grease splats all over my hand and they all hurt like hell. The food actually turned out pretty good, and it was pretty healthy. I should have taken a pic but I was kind of in a pissy mood by the time it was all over. 

I also saw my academic adviser yesterday and it looks like another year and a half and then I will have my BA from Oakland! I should be able to register for both fall and winter semester for next year, but I am bummed. They added a "Blogging and self-narrative" course this past winter and it is available next winter...but only on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the day...and I have work. poop. It was even a English course! *sigh*

Belt, boots & tights-f21

*PS-I am craving me some coffee!

    Sorry to hear about the kitchen debacle. Why is it that the food that turns out tasting the best is always the the food that caused the most pain during the creation process? :P

  12. Aw, that class sounds amazing! You would have thrived in there! But it's so exciting that you only have a year and a half left!! What are your plans for after you finish?!

    Also--I always seem to splatter boiling oil onto my hands or arms! Ugh, I hate it!!
