nueve de mayo

104 copy

Hullo everybody! I am writing to you from the kitchen table of my home, sweet home. On cinco de mayo I was driving back to MD after finishing up finals. Junior year of college over? I'm a senior? Somebody please pinch me. So anyway I thought I'd wear something belatedly festive. This top was formerly a dress that belonged to my mom, but the proportions were wrong for me so my favorite aunt cropped it for me. I'm in love! The stitching is so fun and it's authentic, from one of my parents trips to Mexico. My mom's father was a part of a group which started an orphanage in Oaxaca, Mexico one of the poorest parts of the country.

I haven't been doing much of anything since being home other than interviewing on Friday. Fingers crossed about the internship, I'm supposed to hear back any time now. In other news, we have a puppy! Well actually we've had one for a few months now, but I just now met her since I've been away at school. Her name is Lila and she is the biggest sweetheart. She's 10 months old and CRAZY. She's got more energy than you would believe. It took me forever to get the one picture I have of her. And right after I snapped it, she promptly bumped her nose into the camera, now my nose hurts. Boo. haha she's a trip.

Right now she's squeaking on her chew toy and I kind of want to shake whoever invented them. Why so high pitched?? Why?

Let's see, this summer I'm also working on setting up a website for selling/displaying my artwork. I'd like to learn more about html editing and all that jazz. Wow, my nose really does hurt. Anyway, not too much else on this end. Just enjoying lazing around until work (hopefully or not hopefully?) starts. What have you guys been up to?

Yay for being done with junior year! :) How nice it must be to be starting summer break. :)

I LOVE those shoes...I think I may just have to get them. And your socks are also adorable. :)

Awww! Your puppy is darling! Puppies are such bundles of wild fun. I really want to get another dog but my parents aren't too crazy about that idea, haha.

Your modcloth shoes are so cute!
I'm sorry I haven't been around the blog world much. Congrats on finishing your year of college!

I got my hair cut a bit over a week ago and I have 3 days of school left and I'm making summer lists: recipies to try, classic books to read, places in the city to explore. I hope I actually do some of the things I'm planning to. I don't want summer to be just one long lazy lay about.

Hope your week is going well post-school!

Hehe. I have to say, I'm not much of a dog person--because I think they get way too overly excited and don't like doggie kisses, but yours is adorable :)

Your shoes + socks combo is also adorable.

My favourite part of the outfit is the mustard socks! They are the perfect colour!
