So, I'm really sunburned. Look:
Normally, I wouldn't bitch because, well, when you get sunburn you've probably asked for it. But for perhaps the first time ever, I didn't do this on purpose. A long weekend of winding through street fairs and playing catch in the park did this to me. We also got dressed up and went to a lot dinners. I wore my favorite dress [pre-sunburn]:
...which the BF bought for me last Christmas.
I made baked goods to celebrate the BF's new part-time job: adjunct professor at a college in the city! (I'm no Modern Marie, I know...)
He's still grinding away at the 9-5, and this gig is only two days a week, but how cool, right? I'm already planning a killer outfit to show those freshman girls not to get any ideas...
Right now, though, I'm listening to the Frightened Rabbits (good if you like angsty UK rock with a dash of pop) and ready to get down to this blogging business.
Even though I don't live near the beach anymore, I still have an appreciation for the things it can offer, like pretty little (or big) shells...
