Ever notice how its the days when you have nothing to do when you end up having not enough time to do everything you wanted to do?
Today I took off from work. I had one mid-morning appointment about an hour from my office so schlepping to the office for an hour, leaving for my appointment and returning to work for the last hour of the day just made no sense.
The appointment itself was a short one and I ended up with the rest of the day to do whatever I wanted and yet here it is, nearly the end of the day, and I've accomplished next to nothing!
I did pick up our new Exeter Floor Lamp from Crate & Barrel which had been on back order for a few weeks. This is the final component to our bedroom redecoration so hopefully soon I'll get my act together and assemble the lamp and take some "after" pictures. I could have done that today, but I didn't.
I could have gone for a run this morning before my appointment, but I decided to put it off until afterwards so I could sleep in a bit.
Then afterwards, I decided to run this evening because I really wanted to watch Star Trek: First Contact (which Husband claims that I've seen previously, but after watching today, I can confirm that I absolutely have not seen it before!)
Now I'm waiting to run on the treadmill at 6pm because then I can watch How I Met Your Mother on our local Fox channel and pass the time quicker.

I also could have gotten dressed and retaken these outfit shots. My parents were still in town when I left for work on Monday morning and I really prefer taking pictures alone so I decided to wait until after work. Then I got home, was exhausted, and didn't realize how oddly the front ruffles were sitting until I uploaded the photos while wearing my jammies a few hours later.
Meh. Just imagine that the ruffles are sitting nicely.
This sweater is my new Anthropologie acquisition from this weekend's shopping voyage with my mother. I originally grabbed the purple colorway, liked it, but then realized I already have a dusty purple cardigan so I put it back. Then my mom spotted the rack of other colors and pointed out the green colorway. My initial reaction was, "Blah, no," but then I tried it on and to my surprise liked it!
Hopefully I'll get a few more things accomplished before Husband gets home tonight, but I wouldn't count on it!
