    And I only cried once!

    Today has not been my day. I’d like to pause the regular posting of outfits and happiness to just let you all know: bloggers have bad days, too! To wit: I threw up this morning. I almost got hit on the way to work. I felt like throwing up the entire time I was AT work. A rock hit my windshield and chipped it on the way from work. I went to the dentist. I need a root canal. I tend to post happy things on my blog because… well, it’s a joy to blog, and I am generally a happy person. But today has royally sucked, and I’m not…

Since purchasing my very first Modcloth Items — these tights, for my wedding, and these shoes… because I needed them…– I have been unable to leave the site alone, and I’ve been drooling over SO many items lately. I think my Modcloth Wishlists might become a weekly thing. I bought the Mariachi Knows Best dress for my wedding rehearsal, because I’m definitely one of those people who will dress up for ANY occasion. Plus, it is the perfect dress for holidays– Christmas and Valentine’s day, especially–…

I’m in love with this necklace. 5: will be carrying a bouquet with these flowers in 56 days. 6: Watched the love of my life display one of his many talents…
