Dinner Date

These are my other polka dot pants, and a whole different look to go with them. And this oatmeal-y sweater thing is so warm. Perfect for doing a little pre-dinner shopping with one of my best friends (below).

We've been friends since the 5th grade, and grew up down the street from each other. She came to visit for the evening, so we did a wee bit of shopping downtown, had a delicious dinner, then spent the rest of the night catching up. I stayed up way too late and paid for it today, but it was so worth it to see one of my best friends.

Here's us dancing at my wedding. Don't you love her hat?
She's also the first friend I've told about this here blogging adventure. She's worked retail for 5+ years, and I love to bounce outfit ideas off of her. Even though we've got such different styles, she's full of great ideas & advice, and encourages me to take risks (she even helped me go through my closet a few weeks ago - only a really good friend would do that). She took my outfit pictures tonight and gushed over my outfit. She's pretty excited about me blogging, which in turn makes ME really excited. 

That being said, here's to becoming a better blogger, with the support of one of my best friends :)

A Tweed Jacket

see the snow behind me? Snow. On May Day. Belize it.

This jacket is the other item I "bought" on my shopping fast. A whopping 93 cents, AND I used store credit. Big spender here!

In other news, it snowed. On the first of May. I was worried I wouldn't be able to wear my new jacket until next fall, but never fear, Colorado weather fritzed and snowed just so I could wear my new purchase! Not really. 

I just hope with all this late snow that there are no fires this summer. The ones last summer were pretty terrible, and seemed to burn forever. I drove past the fire crews staging area on my way to work every day for 6 long weeks.

Enough about fire - it's still snowing here!

Have a great rest of the week - I'm having the hardest time squeezing in some last minute running before Sunday...oy.
