The unthinkable has finally happened. Mr. A and I both have full-time jobs.
When did we become such grown-ups?
I still wear "South Park" pajama pants and football jerseys to bed.
I trip over my own feet in the office and fall into walls, desks, and chairs.
I sing along to the Spice Girls and Britney Spears in my car.
There are some days I don't want to wear real pants; I just want to wear boys' basketball shorts.
It's important to keep that youthfulness whenever possible. Be professional when necessary. Have fun always.
This is one of my favorite places to go in St. Louis. If you are ever in the area, visit Tower Grove Park. It's beautiful.
Since I got my first full-time job, I thought it was appropriate that I celebrate the best way I know how -- by shopping, of course! I bought this top from Ann Taylor Loft last weekend along with a bright pink pencil skirt. Ann Taylor is a great place for petite girls to shop. This weekend, I went to Nordstrom and bought two more blazers (blazer love, hollllaaaa!) and an electric blue skirt from Macy's.
The weather at this time of year is my favorite. There is a bit of chill in the air. The sky is slightly overcast. I don't sweat when I am outside. If I could move my desk and computer outside into the Quad for work, I would -- but keep the bees away from me.
There is nothing quite like pulling to the side of a busy road to take pictures in front of large groups of people.
We also went shopping at the Disney Store. The cashier asked us if we wanted gift receipts with our purchase. I responded, "No, we don't need receipts. These stuffed animals are for us." And I was serious. We bought a stuffed vintage Mickey Mouse and a stuffed Lotso from "Toy Story 3."
