Sunshine and Vonnegut

So its been sunny and wonderful here which means its time to break out the summer clothes and summer reads.

Outfit Details –

Strawberry Romper- Thrifted $3, Belt – Thirfted $1, Bag – Thrifted $0.50, Shoes – Payless $7 Raybans – Ebay $62

The outfit wouldn’t cost even $13 except for those darn glasses. I guess I’ll just have to be careful and keep them for years so I can feel less guilty about them!

I used to have this amazing cushy restaurant job where I could read an entire book each shift I worked but nowadays the little free time I have is spent with nursing texts. But I have resolved myself to do more reading. I am allowing myself to buy and reread some of my old favorites including Slaughter-house-five! I am all excited for the summer season. Im sure after the second day of weather in the 100’s I’ll be changing my tune but until then Im going to enjoy it to the fullest.

Well that was all random.. sorry!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous day while I am currently cooped up on my 12 hour clinical…ugh!

So contrary to popular belief I am not dead. Though if you asked me that a couple days ago I may have answered differently. I am just starting to feel better and haven’t touched my sewing machine in about 3 weeks… how sad is that!! But I have had a lot of down time to cook up new ideas.
