Today is the first day since first playing World of Warcraft that I’ve let my subscription lapse.  Cheer!

In the middle of writing this post, my mom interrupted me by bringing in a bag of some of my stuff.  It was the wedding bag.  My dress, veil, shoes, undergarments, and various other trinkets were in there.  Trash the dress?  Mom said no to that idea.  Oh, trash the dress with the other look-identical, two-sizes-too-big-back-then, years after the fact dress?  That dress is in the closet.  Sure, go for it.  My tiara is a bit tarnished and bent.  And my hairdresser was finding a kind way to ask me if my hair has thinned since I last saw her (years ago).  Yes.  Yes it has thinned.  I’m going to start taking biotin.

There were also a bunch of promotional cards for anime inside the wedding bag.  I have no idea where they came from.  I have yet to finish Eden of the East.  Can’t say much about it/interesting to admit considering I’ve only seen the first episode or two.  It was one of the few anime, since after meeting hubby, that I was able to finish an episode without getting bored.  Compliment:  the guy knows how to pick them well!

My mom drove to show me the new MN-610/I-94 interchange.  It’s nice to see it finished, even if construction is 10 years too late.  The drive to Rogers is even quicker than it was a few years ago.  After having lunch, she drove me to see the new entrance to the outlet mall.  It has its own exit going west on I-94.  I guess that’s an improvement?  Always room for more though.  Lane Bryant returned to the outlet mall so we stopped in and she bought me a pair of my favorite pants (a pair only available at the Lane Bryant outlets) and a lovely black and white polka dot tulle skirt.


Truly an OOTD!  The skirt goes with my pajama top!!  There are three layers of tulle and a black underskirt.  It’s a very full, feminine skirt (although it has nowhere near the 20+ yards of tulle that went into my senior prom dress.)  I’m also sporting my new hair cut!  Between the airplane travel and the weather up here, my cuticles need some TLC.  Thankfully the weather here in the next week is expected to bring record highs.  Along with that, hopefully less dry weather.

It was decided during dinner that the mysterious rashes I get whenever I’m up here are due to alien encounters.  (I’m joking, of course.)  Seriously, why do I keep getting them?  It’s like I’m allergic to my childhood bedroom!
