I never thought I could be the girl to pull off these John Lennon-esque pair of sunglasses, but never say never! I wore this casual ensemble for a day spent with my close friend Kirsten. She'd just come back from a week long trip to Arizona, and what a nice vacation she had! So of course, as soon as she got back and we had free time, I roped her into joining me for a day on the town.
That was about a week ago, but I'm just now getting these photos...I mean, I have so much other stuff I want to post about now, that I've started having outfit photos pile up in my draft folder!
Anyway, yesterday, I met up with some old high school friends and we had a blast at the nearby lake. We grilled hamburgers, caught each other up on our lives, and shared many, many laughs. Oh, and screams, because we were near water, so obviously there was rough housing and wrestling competitions involved. Sadly, I lost the war and was shoved in multiple times. I've got no upper body strength, really. It was funny, because I was fighting my friend Jesse and he randomly spouted out, "Oh, you smell really good."
Like, what? Haha, however, I did leave a mark since as I tumbled back into the water my nails clipped him in the stomach. So yes, I literally left him with a scar. Perhaps its time I should trim my claws, eh?
Afterwards, we piled into the pickup, drove to Fred Meyers to grab junk food, and watched The Proposal at his house. By the end of the night (er, early morning?), it hit us how we were all going our separate ways in the fall. Kevin would be heading back to Colorado, Jesse is leaving for College of the Ozarks, Kelsie is busy working full time, and the only ones going to the local college is Amarius and I. It was sad but sweet as we hugged goodbye, unsure of when we'd see each other next.
What's lovely about our unusual friendship is how easy it is to pick up where we left off. We hadn't seen each other since last Christmas when we met up over break. So until our next hang out, I can smile and think back to how we all leaped off the docks, holding hands, mocking the many movie endings we'd seen that ended on such a note, and coming up gasping for air and laughing about how ridiculous we all looked.
