After my husband took pictures of this outfit, he dropped me off at a local Mexican restaurant where I was meeting some girlfriends for
Booze Book Club.
I got there a bit early and so I decided to sit in the bar, by myself, and have a drink.
I told the waiter I was waiting for some girls for book club. He looked at me with obvious surprise. “What club?” He asked astonished.
“Book Club.” Emphasis on the “k.”
“Ohhhhhhh. I thought you said something else.” I giggled, because I thought I knew what he had thought I had said. That would probably make for a more interesting club, but alas, Book Club it is.
I think deep down I am a loner, because some of my favorite moments are spent in solitude.
I loved sitting there
gulping daintily-sipping enjoying my margarita while I watched the people coming and going around me.
The book choice last month was “You Before Me,” by Jojo Moyes. I was very hesitant to read it that month because I had read reviews stating it was gloomy and I did not want the book to send me into a spiral of sadness.
But my friend read it first and assured me that whilst it was a very sad book, it was not overly depressing.
I read it and found this to be true.
What I am saying is: the book is good.
Having a margarita by yourself is better.
Having a margarita with friends is the best.
I know because I chose to have a margarita by myself and one with the girls. And four margaritas on a table are better than one.
That’s just basic math that they don’t teach in school.
Did you sense me stalling here?
Avoiding the issue at hand?
I think it is obvious by now that I have been trying to distract you with books and margaritas to keep your eyes averted from my imperfections.
Aw, well, just have a margarita and we will all feel better.
It is nice to see my favorite winter staple making an appearance again. Last year I purchased the Ruffled Sweater Vest from Anthropologie in two colors and I wear them all of the time. They have a new version this year with a cool ombre effect. The Anthropologie Ikat top was a popback that I got for 80% off (sorry, sold out). I love it and it is one of my absolute best deals. The Paige Cords were a find at Nordstrom Rack last year (and now I desperately want to find them if they ever go on sale in forest green). The thighs were happily earned from pints of Baskin Robbins Ice Cream.
Do you ever go places by yourself? One of my very favorite things to do is go to the movies alone.
One bucket of popcorn + one girl = Happiness.
I really think I missed my calling as a
math teacher hermit.
