As Jeremiah and I plan to move in a couple weeks, we're already hitting up places and events that we've wanted to do but never got around to while we've lived in Gwinnett. During my day off Tuesday, we ate an Indian buffet near our neighborhood. I had never really eaten a lot of Indian before (except a couple dishes years ago) but I thought it was so good. I love spicy food (Thai food is my favorite) so this is something I'm going to have to eat more often.

Anyways, about my outfit. The heat is making me feel very uncreative, and so I've been reverting to my old favorites. I wore this outfit verbatim (except for the shoes) back in April, and since it is such a beautiful floral dress, I decided to repeat it. The weather has been ridiculous the last few days, and when we went to the park, the birds and the bees were going crazy. There were a lot of them, and they were flying around erratically -- it was very Hitchcockian. So we had to move from our usual field spot into the apple tree grove. We've never taken photos there, but I think it turned out well.

We won trivia a couple weeks it'll be our last time going for awhile because of the move. That place is like our "Central Perk" or "Cheers" so it's going to be hard not to go every week.
Speaking of the move, I finally have to tell my work today about getting transferred -- wish me luck!

  1. such a nice dress you have there!

  2. that first picture of you in the orchard is stunning! Very romantic and dreamy.

    A few years ago, a good group of friends and I had a Thursday night kickball team, and then after every game, we'd go to a local bar that sponsored a Game Show night. We won bar tab after bar tab and I really enjoyed having a place to go every week and play trivia and other games. Sadly friends moved away and we don't go any more. But, we'll always have the memories of our glory days! :o)
