I forgot just how tired you get from working (and I over exert myself by climbing the stairs) and rushing to take care of a family. Not that I am complaining. I really like my new job, its super creative and the company does some amazing events for big clients.
Last night i was at work until 5:45 which is nothing compared to jobs I used to have in NYC (8PM? 9PM? 10PM anyone - with no lunch break, just a gross delivered salad at my desk). Last night was truly the lazy mother's dinner. Max had turkey and cheese with berries, an orange and a glass of milk, Jon had a slice of pizza and I had a small salad. All picked up at whole foods for too much money). As much as I love the idea of baking some chicken I just don't have 40 minutes to cook it at night and I don't want to fall into the pasta for dinner black hole of calories and carbs. I really need to invest in a slow cooker. ASAP.
Yesterday I wore the outfit I wore to the saks event on Saturday to work. Its funny, I remember Alicia talking me out of buying Zophia because it was just another black dress (and I bought black vanya). I found this website for a shop in Atlanta called Blue Jeans. They bought some terrible stuff, but they also sold Mayle (go figure). Zophia was on sale for $150 and they had a size 8 which I altered and I wear this dress so much. Its such a favorite.
Today I am wearing black micheala with the black knit kimono style cardigan from spring 05, a tassel necklace from F21, Gray tights and my lola lace up clogs. I will try to take another sneaky bathroom photo today.
Also Katharina from SE told me that she would try to get me some photos of the latest Mayle pieces. I am dying to get my hands on something new, something mayle. I can't find ANYTHING that I want to wear at any of the shops with the exception of some Lyell for UO and a few JM pieces. Even the Rodarte that I obsessed over is languishing (needs alterations). I can't wait for the trip to NYC, I am hoping that getting in early will offer me a few hours to hit Barneys, No 6, Ina, T7 and Nanette before I jump into full on work mode. Ideally I would love to find a mayle covet, the gold sequined nanette dress, something cute from No 6 and the JM Anna dress.
