You may someday find yourself in a TJ Maxx, sifting through rack upon rack of "Is this actually cute or comparatively cute?" clothing items, none of which you actually need but, hey! You're feeling a little stressed. This is therapeutic. You may even think to yourself, "Maybe there's soft sheets on sale!" which there never are, & you know that, but you mosey on to the back of the store anyway. You may see, out of the very corner of your eye, a pretty water color pattern that you're sure you saw a little fashion fairy scamper behind after she sprinkled her trend-finding fairy dust over your head. You may gasp a little, because it's a darling kimono & you've been searching for one for 2 months. You may also be confused for a second, because MY! those are some fancy house-dresses on the rack next to it & ohhhh, yeah, this is the lingerie department. But you will definitely decide "To hell with it!" & convince yourself that this was obviously just put in the wrong place because YOU were meant to find it. This could happen to you -- & I know, because this happened. to. me. It's adorable, right? Not too pajama-y? You know what, don't tell me. I love it.
I keep avoiding writing a new post since my brain is a steady stream of apartment hunting thoughts. I have been subconsciously replacing words in every day conversation with the word "apartment" (ex. "So, then we went to the apart... beach! The beach.") & continually catch myself working the hunt into conversations, even though I know no one cares as much as Jared & I do. We have 3 weeks left on our lease in Norfolk, & theeeen... Well, I'd really love to have a new place to move our things into, instead of a storage unit.
Omg, see? A PARAGRAPH. Just like that. In conclusion, send 1BR+ not-scary-neighborhood + Hardwood Floors-y thoughts in our direction, please.
Iiiiiiin other news, it rained so hard this afternoon that our entire city was basically underwater, & I walked home, & I'd really love for my car to be unscathed when I get to work tomorrow morning. ... & I just remembered that means I have to wake up a half hour earlier UGH.
So, pretty kimonos for days & days! < -- Happy thoughts!
