I've been waiting to wear this dress because a. I couldn't find it for like six months and b. it was quite warm outside once I found it and I couldn't bring myself to wear it.  I love it, don't get me wrong. It's just a bit much for everyday wear.   I wish I could remember more about it.  I want to guess that it came from Circle Thrift, maybe before they moved.  I don't know.  I wore it once before the the 700 Awards.  Even though I only left the house once to go to the grocery store I wore it all day.   Sometimes it's fun to be dressed up at home. 

I spent my day a little hungover from Saturday night's fun.  I got up pretty late and decided sandwiches were in order.  I put on this dress and walked to the corner store only to find them closed so I hopped in the car and headed to the Thriftway, our crazy people grocery store.  It's such a place to be seen.  As usual I encountered someone awesome, an old man, I'd say in his eighties who flirted with me and told me tales of World War II and discovering he had a child in Germany.  It was all a bit of a blur of conversation in front of the jelly section.  He was quick and cute and to the point and didn't seem crazy at all, maybe a little lonely.  He didn't overstay his welcome, just got in and got out so he left me with a smile.  I came home and immediately told Michael the whole story.  

I made us sandwiches and I must say they were perfection.  I savored every bite and then savored every moment of couch suck.   We cleared out a large of chunk of our dvr and in between Michael worked on our bedroom floor using tung oil and citurs solvent.  Our whole house smells like orange oil.  I baked cupcakes and the chocolate scents mixed with the orange, much better than polyurethane any day. 

I made us a late dinner of veggie chicken in a white wine lemon butter sauce,  a saute of mushrooms, walnuts and kale, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.  Swoon.
