[ New York/Texas Trip ]: Day 3! I went to visit my friend in the Bronx and saw these pretty washing machines. I know, not too impressive, but the shiny surfaces make me happy.
9:30am I woke up, laid in bed and stared at my ceiling having some good quiet time. 10:30am I proceeded to check mail, do some urgent work, get ready and pack my computer stuff.
11:30am I was off to the city and out the door, but decided I was too early for the bus and went back inside to check my phone bill. Those extra moments inside the house made it possible to see my sister and adorable little niece and nephew. Wonderful!
11:40am I bolted off to the bus when I got a great "hello, let's chat and catch up" phone call. Hopped on the bus but realized my smallest bill was a ten dollar bill. (and the bus people don't give you change for the $2 ticket) Remembering the jingle jangle of coins in my pants, I reached in and pulled out some coins. 50 cents! nuts! I asked two people for change for my 10. One girl didn't have any, and another girl ignored me. I proceeded to feed my ten dollar bill into the ticket machine thing for my $2 ticket when a cluster of older people yell out to me and ask me what I needed. A wonderful Hispanic grandma had $7 in ones and offered to just pay for my ticket, but then a grandpa motioned for me to come over. He asked to see my bill and pulled out the biggest wad of $1 bills I've ever seen pulled out of a pocket. He gave me $10 dollars in ones. Hurray! (what are the grandmas and grandpas doing with nothing but dollar bills in their pockets? :) )
12:00noon I arrive at bart and hop on the train. There's a seat facing forward available. Score!
12:30pm I check out Anthropologie to check out if this blouse that I saw in vegas was there. It was! (but in white and too see through...) BUT I found the CUTEST tailored dress for $19.00. Score.
12:45pm I get to my special, free wi-fi coffee shop and there's a seat/table open right by the window! woot.
Now! I'm getting tons of work done... aside from this break to write this post.
p.s. vegas was super rad and now I'm super tan. I think there is no hope of losing my swimsuit tan before my cousin's wedding. especially since I'm headed to the Raddest Photo Trip Ever in Thailand/Cambodia for a month right before the wedding)
I love Anthropologie stores. They are a constant source of inspiration: design, crafts, fashion, architecture...etc. I love it.
The other day I went on a rampage and cut off the tags of my clothes. Good idea, right? No more itchy-ness and no more fuss. I was smart enough not to cut of the "how to care for this garment" tags, but there are some things that I did not think about. Now I do not know what size fits me for a given brand. What's worse, I don't know which is the front to my underpants or sweats. nuts. speaking of underpants... I like this postcard set from A Beautiful Mess
I've been looking for some old man slip ons and found the perfect pair at walmart. They're super comfortable, and with a thick rubber sole there's much more support than the average slip on, nowadays. And who can be $9 a pair? I convinced my girlfriend to buy the plaid pair. =)
I bought this old man cardigan below in olive green for a whopping $10. It was such a steal!
There was also this great deal... two camis for $6, so natural I bought four camis.. teal, black, white and navy blue.
Oh how I love finding cheap goodies. wonderful.
p.s. I love walmart for scrapbooking goodies.
