Blouse: c/o BaBassu   Skirt: Rue 21   Sandals: c/o My Hot Shoes   Hat: JcPenney




These pictures were actually taken quite a while ago but I never found time to post them. It features this adorable sleeveless blouse from BaBassu and my good ole bird print skirt!

Watch: Philippines   Bangles: Claires

Anyway, yesterday was a filled day of both work and fun. I went into town early and met up with Patrick to watch Batman. I haven't seen those movies and he wants to go see the new one that's coming out with me, so I need to get caught up. But first we stopped at Costco (which is where he works) since he'd found some sweet running shoes at a decent price there for me. We walk in the entrance, and this woman who's his co-worker starts talking with him before turning to me and asks: "Are you his girlfriend?"


He quickly answered and said, "Oh, no we're just friends."
Her response?
"WHY!?!?!?"
All I could do was giggle from both the humor and awkwardness of the moment. She then proceeded to try and "sell" me Patrick. Seriously, it was something like "Girl, what do you have to think about? He's got a good job, he's cute, he's sweet...seriously, I want to see you two hook up!"
Then she turned to Patrick and, motioning to me, said: "She's gorgeous!"
He was just laughing kinda nervously like I was, but replied: "I know."


Yeah...an awkward yet funny and sweet moment. As we walked away, he apologized and told me he had not planned that at all. Haha, I reassured him it was fine, but her words did linger...hmmmm. Anyway, I bought the running shoes (which are amazing, I've taken a couple runs in them and love the cushioning!) before heading over the nearby college campus to watch the Batman movie on his laptop.


So just another fun day of hanging out and getting to know each other more. Afterwards we both had to speed off to work. And it was there that I had to deal with an unwanted guy, named Pete...
Aha, I didn't give him a chance to try and talk to me too much though. It was just briefly when I had to go back and grab more cups that he spotted me and asked where I'd been since he hadn't seen me. Because last week my schedule had me working earlier before he got there. All I could say was, "Oh you know, just been working." Then I scurried back up to the front. Haha, it was perfect timing since I was about to get off work too. So I punched out and got out of there before he could try anything.


Not sure how much longer I can do the avoiding tactic. Either he'll get the hint or I'll just tell him I'm seeing someone now...

On a lighter note, listen to this song Patrick showed me. I love it!

Cute cute collar on the shirt! And such a sweet costco story :) And I second the 'tell him you're seeing someone' (and leave it at that) Just think, you won't need to let him know whether you mean you're dating someone or just physically 'seeing' someone in your line of vision....and you can assume what he'll think!

Love the deatailing on your top.
