Mikey & I have been acting like a couple of newlyweds lately. I don't know what's going on. Maybe it's the weather? ;) But we both love it, and have jokingly said that it's freaking us out. I mean, we can be cute together, but we've been bein' wayyy too lovey-dovey. Even for us. Then again our 3 year wedding anniversary is coming up in March...hmmm. Last night, after our ice cream date, we came home, shared the recliner, drank a couple of Bud Lites and watched "Garden State"...just like the way we used to do in the first year of dating/marriage. I missed doing a 6 pack of beer + a movie with him.
Today was 27degrees, but that didn't keep us indoors. We walked around Montclair, our super cute neighboring town, had dinner & dessert, shopped at Urban Outfitters, and then grabbed a quick drink while watching a punk band at Clash Bar. Good Friday! Tomorrow he's starting on a project he insisted on: making me a more space efficient closet! Yay! I'll do before and after pictures as soon as it's finished. My closet is my favorite room in the apartment; my girlfriends that have been over know why. It's a whimsical wonderland.
At dinner tonight
I vintage'd out today. A big ol' linebacker lookin' dude at Clash Bar complimented my outfit and complimented Mikey for being married to "a lady who knows how to dress", LOL. Humongous, scary lookin' guys that end up being teddy bears always make me smile.

60's vintage mod coat and 80's vintage dress: Speakeasy Vintage (Montclair, NJ)
Tights & flats: Target
Hat: gifted from my Mommy
Purse: gifted from my sweet neighbors (Isaac & Lissi)
Details: I love the way the collar & cuffs of my dress come out of the coat. Also, you can't see from the cell phone pix, but the skirt part of the dress, cuffs and collar are all gingham print, while the sweater bodice part is checkered.
What Mikey wore today: the shirt is new a/o tonight (from our trip to UO). Not only is it a cute flannel, but it's completely functional for cold weather! The interior lining is all fleece! Mikey didn't even need his coat after he put it on.
Here's what I picked up at UO tonight. I only shopped the sale section, since I'm buying an iPhone 4S tomorrow. Uh-ohhh. Thanks Khalilah, for being the voice that helped me decide that I wanted to give this super trendy phone a try. I'm officially a conformist. ;)
|I've been dying over this sweater. & these kitty slippers were only $5!!|
It's supposed to snow here tomorrow. *ugh* I hope it doesn't cancel our plans, because we have two birthday parties to attend: Isha (the little sweetie that turned 5 a couple days ago) and Mikey's cousins (I call them my cousins too). I'm excited for the fiestas tomorrow as this is our last carefree weekend before school starts on Monday.
For now, we're gonna have a couple beers & some hookah with our friend/neighbor, Isaac.
