Unheard of!

Hey, I actually did something today! How exciting! It's almost like not being a lump.

Shameless plug time for my fantastical friend, Shari. She has an art blog, Fresh Crayons, which is now doing a giveaway involving her lovely Etsy shop. It's not nearly as popular as it should be. AWAY WITH YEE, BLOGGER FRIENDS. GOEST THOU TO YON  LADY'S BLOG.

I like to think I didn't butcher all that nice old-timey speech.

Anyway. I went to the mall with Shari today, and actually bought things! I got this shirt, which just makes me happy in so many ways, and this dress, which I wasn't really sure about, but Shari convinced me to get. So, hooray! I'm getting ever closer to my annual obsession with buying new clothes for the school year, which generally comes right before my obsession with school supplies. The most beautiful thing about going back to school is all the stuff it gives you an excuse to buy.

Oh, and I got a dollar's worth of bouncy balls from Old Navy, which is an entirely reasonable purchase and I can't fathom why you're all looking at me strangely...

Now I'm just cheerful. Imagine, actually doing things with friends during summer vacation! Unheard of!

This morning wasn't that great, though. Last night I tried to mentally will myself to wake up around 7 o'clock so I could mow the lawn and take a shower and stuff, but that didn't happen. So, after waking up at 9 in a semi-panic, only two hours before I was supposed to be at the mall, I went out to mow the lawn. It was all going great--as great as that particularly chore can be--when all of a sudden, out of the blue, I run over a hose. I swear I stared at that spot for a good minute, trying to decide if there was a hose there, because I thought there might be but I couldn't see it. Clearly there was. Anyway, the mower suddenly stopped, and after many desperate attempts to turn it back on, I started crying. Probably because, if it couldn't be fixed, I'd have to pay for a new one, haha.

Well, that was my day! Until next time, friends!


  1. why gracias dolly pants :)

  2. Shari has a nice blog!

    I couldn't see what the shirt was, but I do like the dress. It gets my stamp of approval, ha ha. A

    And I'm right there with you with the obsession. Shoot, I'm already thinking about school supplies. (Granted I go back to school on August 10th, which is sooner than not.) Probably because it will be the last time. *Sniffle, sniffle.*

  3. I like the dress. My kind of dress. And the shirt is fierce. :D

    Ah, back to school shopping is so fun. I love getting the fresh notebooks and new erasers and shiny mechanical pencils. Next year it will be even more fun, because I'll be buying FURNITURE TOO. LE GASP.

    At first I thought it said you ran over a horse with the lawnmower, and I was very confused...
