This week, I did a little experiment (what can I say, I'm a chemist!)... I wore a skirt (and earrings!) every day this week. That's quite a feat for me! There's a post coming about why I did it and what I learned, but here is a sneak peek:
|We'll just ignore how messy my apartment is...|
I went to another Washington Nationals game this week with one of my friends, Amy. We had a blast! The weather looked like it was going to storm like crazy, but it stayed clear all night. We got to cheer on the Nats to a win, and we both do love some men in uniforms. It was a fun night out!
For some reason, I associate summer with reading good books. I just finished An American Heiress, recommended by Elizabeth. I have a couple of books from the library that are next on my to-read list, although I haven't decided what to read first. Do you have any good book recommendations to share?
Guess what I did today on my wonderful day off?
Did you guess thrifting, because that's the right answer!! *Ding ding ding*
I hadn't planned on going crazy, but I did... and I got some great deals! I got 12 pieces of clothing for $52 (I wish I was as cool as Katie and knew the retail price for everything, but alas, I will just bathe in the beauty of knowing that I got amazing deals).
And, because it is a universal truth that women love to show-and-tell their purchases, I'm going to share them all with you.
I know, you're so excited! I can see your excitement shining through the interwebs.
... and I just lost any man who was reading this post... which is probably good, because this was turning into a very girly post.

J. Crew shorts, The Loft skirt, fun scarf, and The Loft skirt!
Aren't they cute?! The shorts are classy and comfy, and the skirts look brand new. I love the print on the scarf, it's very me!
Following the end of my last Quick Takes, here's my next craft project:
Last time I went thrifting, I picked up an old edition of Scrabble that I plan to use for fun craft projects. This is the first on my list! The only thing I have to do is decide what words/themes I want for my coasters... do you all have any suggestions? I'm shooting for 4 letter words... but the clean kind ;)
Thanks to Jen as always for hosting!
