Mother's Day

For mother's day I had a big rager planned at Knotts Berry Farm. Instead my husband and I started getting sick Thursday night. We ended up going to the Goodwill and trying to go to some Mexican sushi place but ended up at a Japanese sushi place and me walking in hoping that my shirt was really the Kanji spelling of Tokyo and not some cheeky obscenity.

This outfit was all in a day's work of thrifting. I got both pieces at the same store. The Russian lady who works there was happy to see Sochi again. She said she told her whole family about Sochi's name. She is from Sochi, Russia. After spending 100 dollars on $2.00 items (yeah it happens) they said, "these are for you, happy mother's day" and gave me 6 waste baskets. Brand new, tags still attached. I heard them tell they lady before me to make sure she took one, but they handed me 6! I was so excited. Even though I don't need any trash cans, it was really cool cause they were free!

But I guess I should be thanking Sochi for the trash cans cause without her I wouldn't be a mom and without being a mom, I wouldn't get any free trash cans.

5 de Mayo

5 de Mayo is a great "holiday" because it says it's exact date like the 4th of July. It's hard to forget. Now if they only called Christmas the 25th of December I could actually remember which day it falls on.

Don't invite me somewhere 5 de Mayo weekend and expect me not to come in costume. I wore this outfit Sunday and again Monday to work.

These are Granny's Vince Camuto's she got at Nordstrom. They are one size too big but I wore them anyways. I will spare you the story of her seeing them on another woman, befriending her, and exchanging email addresses all in the shoe dept.

This post is really just a punishment to myself for eating my brains out all weekend long. Back to Insanity I go. #effseant
