The Great Escape

Saturday, September 29, 2012

As promised, I'm writing this from a hotel room. After a relaxing morning with the boys, I set off on my solo journey. Although I'm only an hour and a half away from home, it feels like I am in another world. It's just what my sanity ordered.

Here I sit, in my pj's, about to dive into some of the heaviest test prep I've ever done. But it seems a little less daunting from my private haven. I am also comforted by the fact that the hotel bar delivers.

Before I get lost in Vertebrate Zoology, I thought I'd give you a glimpse of what this gal does when she runs away from home:

She sports a new scarf:

She shops 'til she drops:

Gap Keyhole Sweater
Gap Icon Cable Sweater
Gap 3/4 Sleeve Stripe V-Neck  [similar]

The mall seemed to be advocating birth control today. Every single child was in the midst of a meltdown. I'm serious. Something was in the air. Those poor parents. Afterward I sought the quiet refuge of my car, only to have have a kiddo in the car parked next to mine scream his brains out while his exhausted mother tried to change his diaper in the back seat. It's times like this that my biological clock stops ticking. Moms of multiple children: hats off to you.

Gap is having an additional 40% off clearance sale, which prompted my mall visit in the first place. I scored several cute fall/winter pieces which will reinvigorate my bored wardrobe. They are SO soft!

I'm just bummed there wasn't a Sephora...I guess I'll have to wait for my birthday freebie.

She studies: 

Whoa, Tiger.

Intimidated by my wild ways? Shocking, I know. I did, however, clear out my old yahoo email account. Fifteen hundred junk emails. Gone. Productive, yes, but not useful come Monday's exam.

She keeps her promises:

Fresh sushi consumed on fresh hotel sheets
Naughty deliciousness
