Mall Rat

My office is a quarter of a mile from a mall. There was a time I would haul ass there every chance I got to buy myself a reward for working in a cubicle all day. It occurred to me recently that I haven’t stepped near the place in months. I think this means I’ve evolved as an office worker.

It’s been too damn long since I’ve bought myself a “I work in a cubicle all day poor me I need a new necklace for my sacrifices” gift so here’s a list of stuff I covet and will probably buy the next time I feel suffocated at work.

1. H&M chiffon dress
2. H&M boyfriend blazer
3. Anthropologie summer sorbet scarf
4. Anthropologie sliced stone earrings
5. Zara fashion city bag
6. Anthropologie beaded mercury wedges

The Husband thinks my taste in clothes and jewelry resembles that of Blanche Devereaux, but what can I say, I love knits and gaudy accessories. Today, I’m wishing I had an extra $10k laying around for this beauty.

This weekend, my goal is to bake bread with the pound of zucchini I have in my fridge and work on my tan.  Happy Friday!

I Do…Again

I know I have five years until I can request a ring upgrade from the Husband, but I’m not sure I can wait that long. This isn’t the most traditional diamond ring, but my life is pretty “traditional” in every other sense of the word, so I think some wild is in order.

Husband, please imprint this image in your brain.
