Long lost OOTN/OOTD

You guys know how bad I've been this year in terms of posting photos, it really irritates me! I don't have the time or the energy. Work is beyond craziness, working 12 hour days, my commute has been extended by 2 hours every day since we moved our HQ to Washington, DC. Don't get me wrong, I like being in DC...but commuting there is redonkulous, no joke!! I hate the Metro system (i follow blogs specifically created to point out all the IDIOTS that ride and work at the Metro), I hate the traffic, I hate the $300-$500/month parking fee's, the stupid parking signs that contradict each other, I hate it all. My first few days in DC I was very confused, taxes felt inflated, so I asked several cashiers why the total was higher...only one was able to yell there's a 10% tax on all food. Then there's the 5 cent surcharge on every bag you get at a food establishment, that doesn't bother me, it's just less to go into a landfill. So my lunches are much more expensive now (not due to the tax though) and the customer service in DC compared to Bethesda, MD (couple miles out of DC) does not compare!! I hate people that have a job and make it very clear they hate & don't care about their job. Suck it up, be glad you have a job! I sure am, despite my complaints I put on a good face! I've had way too many fights with people in DC, way too many and for so many reasons. I need to just accept that people are mean in DC. smh --- wait a minute, wasn't this post on long lost ootn's? tangents...i am the queen of tangents

i think i'm venting b/c i lost a best friend to cancer Saturday @ 2 am (23 yo) and i'm trying to hold myself together. i will attend the wake tomorrow night and the funeral wednesday. i ask you pray for the family please.

on to the ootn/ootd

off to Bethesda for some music to make me dance!

my husband takes the worst photos, since he makes me uncomfortable in full body shots (he hates cameras) I always end up sticking out my gut, lol
sidenote---got these clogs for either $15 or $25 at Ross --- Steve Madden's!
this was taken the next day, another night in Bethesda for more fun!

First I am sorry about your friend. You will be in my prayers girly. Also, I also feel that way about my job. Your not the only one. I hate it sometimes, but I am also grateful that I DO HAVE A JOB. I get paid and my son eats and gets toys... lol... N-E way you look beautiful as always in all your pics. We need to go out to dinner and dancing out in DC. Let me know girly. We can do a BLOG meetup...

first of all i'm so sorry about your friend...cancer is the devil and i hate it :(

but i adore you in pink lipstick. and what gut?! don't make me shake you.

Ebru said...

I'm very sorry about your friend :( I will keep their family in my prayers. My family just few months ago had bit of a 'heart attack' since we found out my grandma had breast cancer. She already had surgery, radiation etc. and is back to her healthy self again but boy were we scared! So I cannot even imagine what it must feel like to lose a family member or a close friend :/

Your pix are always amazing girl, I think your hubby is doing a pretty good job taking pix or could it be because the model is gorgeous?? :))) I think you should do more of that red-ish lipstick you're rockin it for sure! :) I also love all of your shoes and want a pair of each for myself now! And your entire last outfit as well, gorgeous!!! :) How is Rocky doing by the way? xoxo
