Spring Sprung and shopping in our own closets

Spring has Sprung!  

Yesterday my job had its annual walk over to the Tidal basin in DC to see what was left of the cherry blossoms.  We ended up walking a total of 5.1 miles in the middle of a beautiful day! 

Me on the other had- not so cute. (womp womp).  I'd forgotten about the walk, and I'd certainly forgotten about the group picture they take at the end at the Jefferson memorial. Ya'll... I will be memorialized in that picture forever with two pigtails.  Yes. I am over 30 and I had my hair in two pigtails. 

I have been soooooooo super lazy and un-interested in styling my hair.  I want to cut it NOW! Ever since I decided to go with another short spring cut, my year of growth has been getting on my nerves!  I've had at it with the scissors a few times but I didn't want to cut so much that I can't do one single ponytail yet.  I kinda failed at that.  I did a shingle set on my dried hair and I didn't like the way it came out (cool on the outside, hot mess in the middle) but I'd trimmed it short enough that I could not loosely gather it into one while shrunken (without getting a headache).  So I roughly gathered it into two- not caring about a part even. I went to bed like that- woke up and left it like that and went to work- like egh....  I don't care.  and now...  PHOTO, forever. 

This morning, so as not to be caught slipping again for any reason, I wet it, combed it out in the shower and got it much more easily into one pony puff.  It looks much more like I care. lol

But anyway- the other interesting thing going on:
This weekend my girls and I are meeting up to put our creative minds together and closet raid before we go shopping for spring.  I like to make jewelry and earrings and to recycle fabric in different ways. My home girl is getting her personal shopping and styling business off the ground.  I have another close friend with a personal organizing business.  We are all meeting up with some clothing and accessory duds from last year with the goal of doing some swapping, re-purposing, and salvaging (and donating).  We are going to attempt spring looks, vintage looks and just whatever suits our fancy.  I'm so looking forward to it- the energy in the feedback has been really high!  We'll be modeling in our creations in photos.  Maybe I will post the results here!


  1. Aww I love the duckies! My job does a walk around the facility but I didn't go the last time!

    I rock pigtails too and I'm about to be 29..ask me if I care hahahah :D

    I'd love the idea of swapping and salvaging, I was just talking to my friend about doing this every once in a while.

  2. Wow..I've never heard of people accidentally adding on a year..I'm about to be 28 but still. lol

  3. lol- after 27 and before 33 all kinda blends together!

    I had to run some serious errands after work- like buying paver stones from Home Depot. I probably looked crazy lol.

  4. Update! We had a great time! I had two outfits put together for me, and I have a new shopping list- that includes shoes! There were 7 of us and we drank like 5 bottle of wine lol
