The Tides are Turning

My blogging resolution has failed yet again, but I am hopeful.

The weather has also been changing lately.  No more sweltering days or humid nights as of late.  I appreciate the  cooler temperatures.  It also means that I have a chance to showcase some outfits.  With changing temperatures also signals the end of baseball season. Things have been brewing at work which keeps me occupied from the minute I walk in to way after I walk out.  It takes a bit of time and space to sort it all out, but I believe it will work out.

My job search is still ongoing but thankfully I have a goal.  Not that I didn't before but now I have narrowed it significantly.  All that is left is to find the job.

It has been too long!

Although I would love to say "I don't know where the time went," the fact is: I do.  I have not been spending it here posting that's a given. My last post was about my best friend's wedding and that was up over 10 days ago. Shame on me.  However, to justify, I haven't come across anything worthy to blog about.  Now I have. Sort of.

To start off I would like to rehash a few things.  Firstly my Great American Road Trip.  That has been discontinued, DOA, no chance of resuscitation.  Instead, Olithia and I have come to a few conclusions:
A) We discovered that we were being a bit too ambitious to venture on a 30 some day road trip when neither of us has been on one before.
B) Instead of one long trip, it would make more sense that we split the continental US into quadrants and road trip one section at a time.
C) We will be headed off to China as an alternative.  (More on that to follow)
D) We will spend less money therefore be able to save more money for our future road trip. Hurray!

As I mentioned in my last post, I went to my friend's wedding solo.  Olithia posted this and boy it sure put my feelings into words.  I'm in the same boat as her and it's good to know I'm not alone.  Though I have to admit, I am quite a romantic and maybe a bit too much of one.  But that's okay with me.

Finally.  Trip to China!  My parents and I haven't had a chance to go on a true vacation in quite awhile, especially one overseas.  So part of this trip is my graduation present!  The fact that my great friend Olithia will be with me makes it even better.  We will be spending 10 days in China and then some time in Hong Kong as well.  I am super excited because a classmate from college recently moved there for a job and I can't wait to catch up with her in person.  Plus through my current job, I met a chef that will be in China/Hong Kong during the same time.  Small world, so we might meet up too.  It's nice to be around food lovers especially in a foreign land.

Lastly, so I wasn't done, I have an interview!  It pains me that the position I have now will be non existent after early October so I have begun to look for other routes.  It is early, but it never hurts to get a head start right?

Wedding Wishes

This past Saturday I went to PA to attend my very dear friend's wedding.  It was beautiful and sweet and I was a bit out of my element.  I have known this man for over 3 years and he is very dear to me.  To see him get married to a woman he adores brought tears to my eyes.  Then I though about how sad it was being there solo.
Lets not dwell on that.
There's nothing to make anyone feel older than they are than to recount stories from the past.  So many memories were brought up starting with "Remember when."  Those precious hours spent with my former classmates were amazing.
This is the outfit I chose.  A bit more formal compared to what everyone else wore.  But I rather be overdressed than underdressed.  This "dress" is actually a skirt that pulled up to turn into a minidress.  the peach bow was tied under the bust for some definition.
Location: Farmer's Market
Necklace: Unknow
Skirt/dress: Vintage
Shoes: Nine West
