10-6-09 1

It was a very busy, yet fun day today.  I worked 4 different jobs, which I think is fantastic!  I'm not one for monotony.

The worst part is that one gig was in the hospital for about an hour.  Man, I HATE hospitals and I REALLY HATE them during flu season in a college town.  I seriously wanted to be Bubble Girl today.  But, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't go with my outfit.

Last time I was to the hospital was last summer when my husband had surgery on his nose.  I went to see him in the recovery room and got so light-headed and nauseous that the nurses had to put me in a wheelchair and then into my own bed in the next curtain.  Then, I was force fed juice and crackers.  As if that wasn't humiliating enough, I accidentally set off the car alarm while the nurse was helping him into the car (she was trying to keep me away from him, so I wouldn't get sick again).  Then, I got home and realized that I never returned the pager that they give to people who are waiting for patients in surgery.  It was horrible!  And my poor, poor husband...

Anyway, it's just really not my scene.  The only saving grace today was the completely random stranger who complimented my boots :)

But, I made it through and lived to tell you about my outfit.  Mmm...another favorite fall combo already...  I may have to give up blogging for a couple of weeks, so I can repeat some recent outfits.

  8. I have these boots in black...but mine don't have the slit in the back like yours. Did yours come like that?

  9. thanks for your sweet comment over on my blog! I was FLOORED when I saw your comment! No way, Kyla is checkin out my blog?! Your one of the bloggers I have been following forever, and actually inspired me to start one of my own, so thanks!

    anyways, I have been in love with those red boots of your since you brought them back from the conference. Now every time I drive past payless I am itching to go in and get a pair!! I already have a surplus of boots and can't justify another, but sigh.... those ones are just the best. That red color? how it pops against the black? yikes, I die.

    lol great outfit post as always, love the shots in this alley. And glad to hear you made it through this hospital visit unscathed and that it wasn't as traumatic as your last trip. Hey, at least no one force fed you juice this time, right? :)
