MMMM….A Large Vanilla Latte from McDonald’s on this gray, wet day was perfect to wake myself up. McDonald’s is not my first coffee shop of choice but today worked out perfectly. I ran out of coffee in my apartment and, although I was rushing and only had 10 minutes to get to work, I drove to McDonald’s for coffee. I am always pleasantly surprised that I can leave the campus at 7:50, drive to a nearby McD’s among a lot of morning traffic, order/pay/recieve coffee, drive back through traffic and still get to work on time! This McD’s is just that speedy quick!
Ok…I realize my morning adventure is not a large feat, but when I get decent and quick service at a fastfood place and the workers are nice(ish) I am always surprised. Especially when it’s the morning time and their drive thru’s are packed.
Ok, ok…no more. 😉
Ah, Monday…how was everyone’s weekend? Tay and I watched The Office all night Friday night and then met up Saturday morning and drove to Shreveport where I picked up Tori’s Christmas present! Well, part of it. Then that night we went to HHS’s theatre production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (musical) It was very cute and I was surprised at how well everyone could sing. Even if they couldn’t sing sing, they did great theatre-singing. We met up with Charity, Nathan and Mrs. Pam so of course all we could do all night was boo hoo about missing theatre.
So, I don’t know if it’s the dreary weather or the season change but I got to work this morning and was suddenly in the mood for some bright pop of color! I saw this photo of MK&A and was actually inspired by that orange dress. I don’t like orange clothing! And I probably wouldn’t wear that color, ever, in such a large piece of clothing. But that bold shock of color (along with the cute blue scarf) just made me want to wear some bright colors! And of course I love Mary-Kate’s black lacy dress, too.
I do need an intervention! I am just so drawn to blacks, browns, tans, grays! I am not apologetic for this, but if I keep it up my entire wardrobe is going to be those colors! Maybe I’ll go shopping today and pick up a couple of colorful shirts or something.
Also: The last couple of weeks have been christmas card weeks! We took family photos for the christmas card, and then Tay and I took webcam photos and sent e-cards to everyone on facebook. Saves money since we don’t have much of that. And tis the season to get my freelance on! People want family Christmas cards! And I am more than happy to take those photos! I have my second family tonight! Very excited that I’m getting those photo opportunities! 🙂
