This Just In: Mia Needs Some New Electronics and a Moving Van

Well, then. Sorry about the radio silence! A couple of things have happened in quick succession in the last couple of weeks: 1) my laptop broke and I lost the ability to process outfit photos, and 2) I was offered a job and will be shortly moving to Tacoma, WA.

Pictured: Tacoma, or at least a very small piece of it.

Given these turns of fortune, blogging might continue to be a little staticky over the next few weeks. If you bear with me, friends, it’d be much appreciated! I’ll make sure you’re handsomely rewarded with overcast photos of Puget Sound and, of course, of myself. Never let it be said that I’m not willing to give the people what they want.

This getup worked pretty well so long as I didn’t lift my arms above my head.

I knew the lengths might be a bit buggy but I tried it anyway, just to see. End result: it distracted me throughout the day exactly as much as I expected it would!

I’m still not comfortable with crop-tops, and I don’t know if I ever will be, but maybe a deliberately short length would feel more intentional than regular shirts on a slightly-too-long torso?

I can only hide it with strategically-placed wrists for so long; I got a big oil stain on my shirt yesterday! Exciting!

Basically, I made a salad for our St. Patrick’s Day work potluck and the dressing betrayed me. I held my purse awkwardly when I could, but after a point I just stopped caring.

After all, why worry when you can DANCE??

Disclaimer: I cannot dance. It’s really an activity better left to my erstwhile blogging partner and other people who actually enjoy it as a form of movement. But still.

Since the time change, I’ve had the opportunity to experiment with new photography spots.

20141106-IMG_2816

See, I have to take pictures before leaving for work, and my usual places [1) By Window and 2) In Front of Tree] are flooded with beautiful, painful morning sunlight.

20141106-IMG_2817

This spot by the fence is more scenic than in front of the garage or the tiny chain-link fence our driveway inexplicably has, so it’s the winner so far.

Of course, getting presentable in the mornings has been a challenge too. Try not to think too badly of me if some of my photos in the near future feature wet hair or a half-asleep Mia.

I complain about this every year, though, so let’s make this post new and fresh by complaining about something new: wet grass! What’s the deal with that?

This outfit was supposed to include my frog-green cardigan, but it met with an…unfortunate accident.

20141029-IMG_2787

That makes it sound like I put a hit out on it, but it really was unintentional. In short: the laundry machines ate it.

20141029-IMG_2788

I’m not sure which is the actual culprit–washer or dryer–but regardless, it has a nice hole and a mysterious gray streak down the arm. I think that means it’s time for a new frog-green cardigan!

The best part of summer weekends is definitely getting to wear pajama clothes.

(The best thing after farmer’s market pork on a stick, that is.)

20140531-IMG_1979

I trotted around in this to run some errands–taking stuff to Goodwill, picking up prescriptions–and then Mike and I went out to dinner and I buried myself in a bowl of chirashizushi.

20140531-IMG_1981

The good food made up for the fact that it was only at the restaurant that I noticed a certain sandal was starting to come unglued at the sole.

We won’t name names, BUT THE SHOES RESPONSIBLE KNOW WHO THEY ARE.

Anyone got any superglue?

Switching to mornings for my outfit pictures has caused a few technical difficulties to arise–for one thing, it’s harder to get in-focus shots with the morning light, especially since I’m still using the timer. Maybe this is a good excuse to finally get around to buying another remote?

20131114-IMG_1002

At least I can still take detail shots passably well. That’s something the camera makes pretty easy, even when I’m 7:30am sleepy.

Happy Friday, everybody!
