Coral and Spikes

Top: c/o Too Sexy Jeans   Shorts: c/o Oasap   Shoes: c/o My Hot Shoes   Denim Shirt: Walmart   Bracelet: Claires   Belt: PacSun

I felt quite daring in this outfit. Scroll down a few pictures and you can guess why. This sleeveless blouse has one awesome cut out back! Paired with some matching spiked flats, it added the right amount of edge. Plus, you can never go wrong with a good jumping picture, right? I've missed these!


Lately I've felt quite burned out from lack of sleep. I've been wanting to spend time with my friends before summer break ends, but I've also accumulated some good hours at work. After a few days like this, it's going to take more than coffee to wake me up - possibly some long hours of sleep!


Anyway, after work on Monday, I met up with Patrick at his physical therapy appointment. He's injured his shoulder from hockey, and he's much better now, but they're having him check in once a week to make sure it stays healed. He left me a voicemail telling me where to find the building he was at, and that he had "a sweet treat waiting" for me in his car. Once at the parking lot, I walked over to his car and peeked inside. There I found my favorite drink from Starbucks - the Mocha Cookie Crumble of course! Haha, I love how he remembers these things about me. 


Once he finished up there, we headed out to his house. Since he'd already met my parents, it was my turn - which wasn't as nerve-wracking as I thought it'd be. They're such sweet people - I can see why Patrick turned out the way he did. Haha, we had pulled-pork sandwiches and salad for dinner, then Mr. Barga made some popcorn and we all went to their family room to watch The Court Jester. It's an old film, but thoroughly entertaining. I was laughing so hard during this one comedic sword fight scene...haha, I'll have to find it on Amazon or something. We also had vanilla ice-cream with huckleberries to top the night off.



I'm so relieved the night went well. Anyone else have some "meeting-the-parents" stories? I'm sure there are plenty of entertaining ones! Thankfully, mine went smoothly. 


Things with this boy are going so well...it feels like it's something that's definitely more than a summer fling. At the end of the night, I can still remember the look in his eyes when he just stared at me in wonder and said, "How did I get so lucky?"


*Cue Linda melting into a puddle*
All I can say is, I don't think he's the only one who's lucky!

BBBAAAWWWEEEEE yer story today had meee melting just as much as it had you melting. Seriously ugh that is adorable that he remembers your favorite drink, and that he said that at the end of the night!! I really do think what you have is more than a summer fling, oh definitely!!

You better keep in touch with that boy when you go back to school, oh lovely Linda. :)

Can we talk about how sick those shoes are? If they come in black, I'm going to be asking for them for Christmas or some holiday, 'cause they're somethin' fierce. And that top is so perfect!
