1, 2, 3 June 2015: The Countdown Ends

Our summer reading adventure starts tomorrow at work! I actually did such a good job with time management that I finished absolutely everything this afternoon around 2:30 and then got cranky and stressed because I needed to be Doing Things and there was nothing to do but wait, ha. I did some ordering, made some phone calls, and that helped.


Abercrombie and Fitch top, Old Navy sweetheart skinnies, JCrew Factory scarf, Keds

So boring. So cold. At least I experimented with the scarf?


Elie Tahari striped top, Old Navy Flirt skirt, Forever 21 leggings, Nerdtastic Agent Carter necklace, Hawkeye and Widow bracelets, Biviel t-strap heels

An actual put together outfit! I probably should have worn this the day before when I was training our new hires. OH WELL. I walked to Old Navy Monday night and I couldn’t have done that in these heels.

Check the cute necklace:


It’s a quote from Agent Carter, which ends, “No one else’s opinion matters.” Talk about an excellent mantra. The default charm is her red fedora, but I like Steve’s star – also makes it more wearable with more outfits. Most Agent Carter jewelry I find involves guns (she’s a spy/special agent), so I was thrilled to find a reasonably priced one that doesn’t.


anthropologie top, Sag Harbor skirt, Captain America necklace, Agent Carter necklace, White Cliff flats

Yeah, the shield doesn’t go with the outfit, whatever. My hair doesn’t go with the outfit, either. I went with it anyway.

I’ve been looking for a big achievable project this summer and I decided to do the Couch to 5K. I’ve never been a runner or jogger, largely because of my asthma and allergies, but I’ve been walking so much that I decided it could maybe work. So I picked up some earbuds and fangirl workout tops and did W1D1 on Monday and W1D2 today, on National Runner Day. It’s been going well, but I did realize that jogging and walking in heels use the same muscles, ow.


Redbubble On Your Left (Rogers Running Club) top, Gap yoga pants, running shoes

The top refers to Sam and Steve meeting as runners in Captain America 2: Winter Soldier, heh. When I saw the designs, I had to do it. Makes me smile.

Also making me smile: BINGO. I was up last weekend for my mom’s birthday and he was a doll.


Also smileworthy: my summer organization. All my beautifully designed logs (not by me; two by a colleague and two by an amazing freelancer), counted and organized on our cart and in storage. 20150603-191228.jpg

Yeah, it’s ridiculous to be excited by organization, but whatevs, do not care. T-12 hours!

  1. I LOVE organization stuff! So to see stuff nearly arranged & organized is such eye candy for me! I love nothing more than to be left on my own to look around at my leisure for hours at a Container Store. Stress would be to be in a Sephora however. LOL
    I had to giggle when I saw the Comcast remote tethered to the coffee table. We had to do this with my Mom. She can lose a remote like no one else. I’ve rifled throu more trash bags searching for her remote than I care to admit.
    Ugh with the Couch to 5K thing. I semi got talked into that a few years ago & lasted like 2 days (ok 1 day). I love to walk & do so daily, but running – hella no. If I’m running it’s because there is a chainsaw-weilding mass murderer hot my heels, otherwise, yeah no, I don’t run, and my knees thank me for this.


    • I am not a super organized person, but oh man, do I love organizational things. Well. I mean, I say that, but I’m a librarian, so clearly I do a lot of organizing in my work life, ha. I may actually just be comparing myself to my mother there, in which case I will never be called an organized person! I have organizational dreams.

      Ha!! I’ve always been a big walker, but so far, jogging is going okay. I’m into week two, and it’s definitely harder, but I got my breath back quickly during my cool down, so I’m calling it a win. We’ll see if it feels easier as the week goes on. I am tempted to try the Zombie 5k app, where you actually are running from zombie hordes, hee.
