She's Got a Ticket to Ride

June 30: She's Got a Ticket to Ride
This morning I forced myself awake four minutes before my alarm went off. I had to fight to wake up because I was stuck in a nightmare. I called Boyfriend while I was still wrapped up in my blankets but even he couldn't shake me free. All through my shower, breakfast, and walk to work I was haunted by my dream. My stomach was in knots and even though the sun was warm on my face and arms, I felt like I was in a damp fog. Luckily, my office is filled with wonderful, cheerful people and by lunch I was feeling better and more myself. On top of all the goodness of simply being with happy people, one of my coworkers Jefferey had a surprise for me. He had spent the weekend in New York for his birthday and had returned with a gift for me: the Marc Jacobs cooler! I am so touched that he thought of me on a weekend dedicated to celebrating himself. I look forward to putting it to use.

Finally, a close up of the watch Boyfriend gifted me for my birthday. It's a Fossil and it's so beautiful and classic. It's the perfect everyday watch. It's subtle in it's elegance and it will go with everything. I wore this last week (June 30th) when it was 65 degrees. Today it was 102 degrees! What a swift change. Oh D.C. summers, how you mess with our heads! I was excited for the cooler weather because I felt comfortable breaking out my favorite boots:

I actually changed my outfit midday because a) it was colder than I'd anticipated, and b) I wasn't happy with the outfit I'd thrown on in the morning. I was a little happier with this outfit and since I spent part of my lunch break taking this photos I thought I might as well post them. I enjoy self-takes. There is something very satisfying about them.

Other good things about today: I spent my evening with a girl friend eating chocolate ice cream and watching Beauty & the Beast. I painted my nails pink! I finally have my schedule for this semester in London. I have a week-long break halfway through the semester that will be just perfect for Boyfriend to visit.

EDIT: I remembered more good things: listening to a playlist I made in high school and singing along. Being excited about blogging again.

Keep on smiling my loves!


  1. sorry you had a nightmare. I had a really odd totally Freudian dream a few weeks ago that really through my entire day off. Without going into detail, the dream revealed to me that I still had feelings for a boy I'd given up on a year ago. Not that I plan on dating him now, it would never work, but I thought I was totally over him, apparently the sexual tension is still there, ugg. It was not a great way to start the day...
