shake your head // it's empty

posted on: March 28, 2011


I spent this weekend getting up to the usual shenanigans (I almost missed a typo "shenanigangs" just then, but I assure you I am not affiliated with any gangs!) Adam was out of town all weekend and I saw this as an opportunity to go shopping. But let's be honest with ourselves, I'll use any excuse to go shopping. You're going through a break up? Awesome, let's hit the mall! You gained 10 lbs and none of your clothes fit? I'm so happy for you, we should go find you a whole new wardrobe. Okay, I obviously kid. I'd never actually take you to the mall after a breakup, that's a recipe for tears in my Orange Juilius.

Where was I? Right, Saturday afternoon. I planned a morning of Main Street shopping with Melissa and then was going to hit downtown before my hair appointment. Why I feel the need to have the most stereotypically girly weekend while my boyfriend is away, I'll never figure out. Anyways, I kept running into friends and getting so distracted that I forgot to eat! I was literally so lost in a world of spring florals and platform pumps that didn't eat my first meal until 6 pm on Saturday. Now, if skipping two meals to shop isn't logical, then I don't know what is! Thankfully, the last person I ran into was Lisa who was a fabulous shopping partner and the perfect impromptu dinner date! We caught up on important life details and shared funny stories over a drink and some eats.

It was the opposite of my usually structured Saturday afternoons, but that's what made it so great. Every time I turned the corner there was a new opportunity; those days are the best!

    Also, can't wait to see the engagement photos you shot! We still need a photowalk date to stalk people with our telephoto lens! hahaha I kid about the stalking.

  10. "Why I feel the need to have the most stereotypically girly weekend while my boyfriend is away, I'll never figure out."

    It's because there's no "My boyfriend seems so bored...oh, wait, now he's surfing online with his smartphone waiting for me to finish up in this store" guilt. Completely unapologetic shopping and browsing is the best. :D

    I had such a great time on Saturday. You make a pretty perfect impromptu dinner date yourself, lady!

  11. Your hair looks beautiful!!

    I'm crushing on your shoes too!!!
