Happy Sunday everyone!
Well, the weather sucked in Chicago this weekend. Nothing ruins a weekend like rain, clouds and fog. So I decided to do some of my favorite rainy day/weekend things around my house.
Okay I can’t really say that picking up the piles of clothes and papers in my apartment is fun but I did some general not-so-fun-but-necessary-stuff like:
- Pay my renter’s insurance (I know it’s necessary but I didn’t like writing that check)
- Fill out my passport paperwork and get my birth certificate together (yay! It’s here!)
- Book car and hotel reservations for my second big solo trip
- Create an itinerary/event flow for my NOLA, Vegas and yet-to-be-announced trip
I knew I was working in my field for too long when I made an event flow for my own personal vacations. But, when you have confirmation numbers, hotel details and addresses spread all over the place, it’s good to be organized :)
Yes, I love organizing things. It doesn’t really matter what.
And once this mature adult sh*t was over, I was ready to have a little spring dress fashion show. Just because it’s 40 degrees outside (Chicago! You’re killing me!!) that doesn’t mean I can’t try on my pre-spending freeze dresses and dream of warm weather.
My biggest challenge with dresses is the boob-area. I’m busty to begin with and some dresses make my D-cups look like Heidi Montags. I’m not so keen on that, which is why I mostly wear dark color dresses, to help keep it under control.
And so far, I’ve found two I’m pretty excited about (apologizes for the sucky photos, rain means no good light in my place):
Old Navy – $19.50
JCrew – $69.50
Oh yes, I’m dreaming of warm weather right now!
And finally, when it’s pouring outside, I love curling up on the couch with movies. And right now, I’m totally obsessed with the Wii Netflix feature. It syncs my instant Netflix queue to my Wii so I can watch movies on my TV anytime. Um, amazing. I have a little Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Office and several documentaries in my queue right now and the convenience is amazing. My only complaint? Not in HD so the resolution is good but not great. But again, convenient and I like that.
How was everyone else’s weekend? Are you Netflix Wii obsessed? Do you love spring dresses?
