Friday Outage: June 18th, 2010

Event: Medical placement (+Panera lunch break with my mom)

Outfit: Blue puff-sleeved tee: Gap; Grey slacks: The Limited; Headband: Forever 21; Necklace: Handed down from Anna?; Shoes: Target

So, Friday I went to work. I wore the outfit above. And then I came home to a BLACKOUT. Well, after driving through rain and crazy winds and dodging fallen trees. Seriously, this is summer, Chicago? Anyway, the power was out through Saturday morning, which apparently for our family means spending Friday evening dumping buckets of water out of our basement to prevent flooding. Not exactly the Friday night I was envisioning. Anna and I had lofty dreams of making it better by catching fireflies and experiencing a return to childhood, but the lightning kinda destroyed that.

ANYWHO. Friday night ended and Saturday held the Scottish Fest. It’s all good. I’m now doubly grateful for running water and light. You’re pretty great, guys. Thanks for working most of the time.

And P.S.: Milwaukee had tornado watches/warnings tonight?! Eeeks! Cool it, Mother Nature. Pretty pretty please.

To end on a cheerful note, here are some puppies from Saturday:

  1. Yikes! Yay for the return of light and running water!

  2. We surprisingly didn’t lose power on Friday even with the bad storms, but every area around us did.

    Last night was craziness, we had Tornado warning sirens going off in our town too.

  3. you’re looking ridiculously slender in that top photo–and i love that color on you.
    eeks on the power outage! we had a gigantic storm here last night; i don’t think i’ve ever heard thunder that loud!

  4. we still had our power…but Target lost theirs and I was lost when it was time for Saturday grocery shopping…I guess I rely on target too much
    I love that top…you look great

  5. Blackouts are fun for like an hour, then you realize how much you miss internet! 😀
