Wardrobe Wednesday: Truth in Advertising

I was totally going to do a cute, adorable outfit post for you today.

I was.

Really.

But then I got to cooking, and then to repainting like I wanted to, and then to showering, and - yes. It just never happened.

Nick had the fantastic idea to show exactly what I wore all day today. Which was pajamas. Specifically, his pajamas. And his hoodie. And his tank top.

So here. This is what I actually wore today - no make-up, no anything. Just PJs.



And just in case you want to see what I was actually doing today...











Obviously, it's a fairly amateurish paint job. It's my first time ever doing something quite like this, and I don't have much in the way of painting experience. I'm pleased with the results, but obviously I have tons to learn and tons to experiment with in the future.

Pajama days are the best days, especially when you can steal said pajamas from your boyfriend :)

Ps. I'm looking forward to seeing how the doll turns out. I'm glad you are getting a chance to do something you always wanted to do *hugs*

Pajama days ARE the best, though I struggle to picture you successfully wearing Carlin's pajamas. XD

I hope the doll turns out well! She's looking pretty decent right now. I just can't wait to re-root her and make her some clothes! *super hugs*

I hope life is going well for you. <3

Yea... his shirts are dresses on me... doesn't stop me from wearing them though :)

Life is alright, only one more semester left of grad school and I'm taking online classes so I get to stay in Peoria for it. Yay! I kinda got a job too... it's out in Washington state for a school trying to get accreditation. I'm mostly just writing library policy and trying to show that the students have adequate access to library materials for right now. Other than that, not much is going on... How is life for you?

That visual is possibly one of the cutest things ever. XD

OMG, ONE SEMESTER? That's so exciting! Congratulations! And I'm glad you've got a job. Is this a telecommute kind of job, or is this a "I'm moving out to Washington state to write library policy" kind of job?

Life is good for me. I'm working retail and making some decent money, and on my days off I'm basically doing everything in the world that's creative. I'm doing Outlet with Angie and Julie, and interning with my cousin's business, Savvy Cinderella. Basically I'm just having a blast and trying out tons of different things!

Right now, it's a telecommute kind of job, but my boss wants me to move out there... I'm still thinking about it. I've got a lot of family out there, but moving is expensive and Carlin and I want to get married at my church here and... so... yea. I've got til august to decide though.

I'm glad you are enjoying life and having fun... wish I could find a way to come see you though.

Well, whatever you decide, I hope things go well for you! That's a major move, and a scary one. Would Carlin be able to go with you? I'm assuming that would be the plan. Also, I don't know if you're officially engaged yet, but congratulations regardless. You two make a fantastic couple, and I'm so glad you found each other.

I wish you could find a way to visit too! :( I may be back to visit in April for a bit. Fingers crossed that that happens.

Aww, thanks! I was irritated with them once I finished with them, but I'm hoping they look ok overall. I just can wait until the doll hair comes in so I can rehair her!

Really?! Well, thanks! I guess I'm incredibly self-critical, so when I was done I was like, "Whelp. I guess that'll do for now." They'll get better over time, though. :D I'm super excited for when the doll hair comes in.

LOL, thanks about the pajamas! My boy actually made those pirate pants. THEY'RE SO DAMN COMFY.

YAY JAMMIES!

And the doll looks great. You did a hell of a better painting job than I would have been able to do and you'll get better with each doll you do. :)

*hugs*
