This week's inspiration over at Two Birds is Elizabeth Olsen. I have no clue who she is, but I'm going to step out on a limb and say that she is related to the Olsen twins... this post by Vivienne at Thrifted Shift. I don't often read books (a shame... I know), so finding someone who can provide me with the valuable notes in a fun blog format is right up my alley! I paired this look with a denim jacket when I got home because it was far too warm to wear it out of the house, and I haven't owned a vest since Bush Sr. was president. This jacket is a veteran in my closet... I can't remember when I bought it or how much I paid... It has just always been there for me.

I grew up an only child even though my father has two sons from his previous marriage. I didn't meet them until I was a junior in high school. I am also the youngest grandchild on my mother's side (I have about 25 cousins)... so, I can often times seem like a brat because I'm used to things going my way... BUT... I am not. I just like things to go my way, and I don't like change (yeah, I realize how bratty that sounds). Well, this week at work, I found out that my duty (since I don't have a homeroom) was changed from an afternoon duty to a morning hallway duty. All I have to do is stand in the hallway and check for passes for about 40 minutes once a week. While I complained about the change, I said something like, "I'm such a brat." One of my co-worker/roommates (because we share a classroom) was like, "Yeah, you are... but not all the time... just sometimes." I felt so bad even though I know he didn't mean anything by it. I will be sure to shut my mouth and stop complaining about things that aren't an issue. I'm just really uncomfortable with a lot of changes, and this year has brought on a LOT of changes at my school.

Zack and I celebrated our FIVE year anniversary this weekend. No, we didn't do anything interesting or amazing... we just had a regular date night. We went for dinner and a movie at Studio Movie Grill and saw The Campaign (which is absolutely hilarious!). He ate a bacon, mushroom, swiss burger, and I had chicken fingers with sweet potato fries (Yum!!!). Afterwards, we went to the mall and walked off our food... and I tried on things I really liked.before, is our designated spot for celebrations) and got dessert. We also ran into a co-worker of mine who was celebrating her and her husband's 25th wedding anniversary! Cool, hunh?! Well, on Sunday, we went to the park to workout.
Today's inspiration for Two Bird's Inspiration Monday is Jessica Biel.

This haul is going to be a bunch of pictures, but I hope to one day work myself to a video... I just don't have the time... or patience. *shrug* Anyhooo... While I visited my parents this past weekend, mama and I went to the Goodwill in the Historic West End.

I was an absolute winner today! Firstly, I stopped by Starbucks to get breakfast: a fruit cup and a croissant. As I waited for the croissant to be toasted, the girl making the coffee (the barrista?) asked me if I'd like a latte that she had made for a customer who never picked it up. I'm not a coffee drinker, but when she said that it was a cinnamon-caramel-something-something-latte, I agreed to take it... FOR FREE!!!

I went to JoAnn's fabric store last week to get materials for a maxi dress I found on Pinterest. I went into this project with all intentions of learning how to sew and being an amazing seamstress... *sigh* Lets start with this picture...
