Oh, summer. What is it about you that makes me just want to throw something light on and be done with it? For non-internship days (especially days after working at the restaurant), a sleeveless top and airy skirt are just about all I've been putting on. I assume we're pretty much all in the same point at this point of summer, so I don't feel so bad.
The past few days have been fairly exciting. One of my best friends, Jeremy, proposed to his girlfriend last night and as "the female groomsmen" as I've dubbed myself without telling him, I've spent some time helping him with the proposal. His family owns a limo (because that's normal, right?) and he had our friend Adam drive his girlfriend and her friends around on a scavanger hunt around Orange County in it. On Thursday, Adam drove all us, plus our friend Jon, out to dinner in it to practice driving, which meant I got to be fancy for the night. Then yesterday, I helped Jeremy set up for the proposal at his girlfriend's house as she was being driven around. For once my inner Pinterest side came through as I helped make paper lanterns to hang from trees in her backyard. I'm not a particularly sappy person, but I have to admit that it was incredibly sweet and the place turned out to look beautiful.
Even though Jeremy's a couple years older than me, it's still weird to be at that age where my friends are getting engaged. All of this growing up stuff is messing with my head.
And in case you were wondering, she did say yes! All of that crafting was a success.
Plus, I saw Pacific Rim last night. I can't even put my thoughts into words. Man, that movie. Obviously, my year as an entertainment editor has made me nothing short of eloquent.
Lastly, I'm loving this new necklace from eFoxcity. It's perfectly simple and I'm already thinking of a million ways to wear it. If you haven't checked it out eFoxcity and you like affordable things, you absolutely should. The site offers wholesale clothing from China, evening dresses for 2013, and is really the best place to go for wholesale ladies clothing.
