Yes, that’s spelled correctly.
This is intersession, not intercession. This is that limbo time of approximately eighteen hours when there are once again no kids on campus and we can be free, wild-range grown ups. In fact, our fearless leader even actually allowed us to take off the surgically implanted lanyards during staff meeting. The funny thing is, since the prox card that lets me into buildings is on that lanyard, taking it off was more hassle than it was worth and I quickly put the damned thing back on anyway.
Such is life.
I did celebrate in my own way, however. Since I am the efficient, proactive machine that I am, I had already finished my end-of-session paperwork earlier this week, so the time allotted for that was spent in personal sartorial pursuits. I purchased five skirts from eBay – all of which I shall highlight at the end of the month – but I also threw in some pieces of interest in various shopping carts.
And since this is me we’re talking about, I took my online addiction with me past the morning office time and into the afternoon during the first annual A Staff vs. B Staff softball game. No pictures of that because shopping, but suffice to say it was an experience. I finally got a taste of what it must be like to be part of an organization that does things like company softball games: the camaraderie, the good-natured competitive jeering, the makeshift hotdog catapult, the various stages of inebriation as people attempt to hit a ball with a stick.
Of course, this being the East Coast, I acquired four new and potent mosquito marks, one on each appendage.
Anyhow, it’s been a while since I’ve done this feature, an occurrence that I’m sure makes my hubs and my pocketbook supremely happy. But just in case I want to pull the trigger on any of these for future use in my real life, how’s about some input?
First on the roster: New York and Company. I thought I’d given up on this store but I hadn’t taken myself off their mailing list and, on a whim, I clicked on their ad this week. Lo and behold, a few things caught my eye and they’re having their $50 off $100 sale so perhaps?
Of course, online shopping wouldn’t be complete without a perusal of good ol’ Forever 21. I’m planning on visiting the brick and mortar when I spend another weekend off with KS#1, so any opinions before I actually go would be much appreciated.
Oddly, nothing struck my fancy at Target except for the following top. I’m currently obsessed with lace and this was featured by Audrey over on Putting Me Together. D’you think this is better than the F21 piece above?
