Morning Madness


My Threads: Shirt: GoJane (similar), Blazer: H&M (similar), Skirt: Forever 21, Booties: Target (similar), Clutch: Coach (similar), Bracelets: Charming Charlie, Watch: Michael Kors

Weird things happen to me. I don't mean weird as in I've been abducted by aliens or anything, just kind of absurd things happen on the day-to-day.

Here's how my morning went yesterday. Got up (late), showered, got dressed, and toasted a fake poptart from TJ's. Nothing unusual. Then I headed out to the garage, my purse, lunch, and breakfast in hand, only to find my garage door would only open a foot. What ensued was an hour of chaos, which included me trying to lift the door by myself while eating my poptart with my purse on, Marc leaving school and sliding under the garage, climbing on my car, unhooking motors, and banging on the door. Because banging on broken things is always the best solution.

After about 45 minutes, we decided my car wasn't coming out. So Marc volunteered to just drive me to work. And, of course, because I was already an hour late, the exit off the freeway had to be closed.

So my excuse when I finally got to work? My car was trapped in the garage, I had to crawl on the ground, and I couldn't get off the freeway. That's stuff you just can't make up.

My garage is still broken, in case you were wondering, but my landlord managed to bust my car out.

Hope your Wednesday went a little more smoothly than mine!

  8. This is a great outfit! Weird stuff like that happens to me. Like the time I was driving down a back road to get to work (because typically it's faster) only to find someone's horses were loose and standing in the road. They surrounded my car. I was afraid to honk my horn and risk spooking them so there I sat, in the middle of nowhere for 10 minutes. I took pictures so I had proof when I finally made it to work.

  9. That sounds like one heck of a day! It's my professional opinion that when things like that happen, work should just be canceled for the day. Kind of like a snow day.

  19. I love this whole outfit. you are too cute. What a drag about your morning. Similar thing happened to me, but luckily my car was outside and I was trying to close it...suffice to say it was an expensive fix, but got fixed the next day, since everything in our garage was exposed. Luckily we have trusty neighbors.
